Privacy Policy

This privacy policy will provide all the necessary information related to how, to what extent and for what purpose we or third-party providers collect and use data from you as a user of this website. Your data is collected and used strictly in accordance with the provisions of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG). We are particularly committed to the confidentiality of your personal data and we, therefore, work strictly within the limits set by law. These personal data are collected on a voluntary basis wherever this is feasible. We will also share this data with third parties only with your express consent. By using SSL encryption, we ensure a high level of security for particularly confidential data such as in payment transactions or with regard to your enquiries to us. At this point, however, we would like to point out the general dangers of using the internet that we cannot control. Especially in e-mail traffic, your data are not secure without any further precautions and they may be collected by third parties.

Information, Deletion, Blocking

At your request, we will at any time and free of charge provide information about the personal data we have stored about you as well as about the origin, recipient and purpose of the data collection and data processing. You are also entitled to request your data to be corrected, blocked or deleted. This does not apply to data which are stored due to legal regulations or which are required to properly conduct business transactions. Data are stored in a lock file for control purposes so that data can be locked at any given time. If data are not covered by a legal archiving obligation, we will delete your data at your request. Where archiving is mandatory, we will lock your data. For all questions and concerns regarding the correction, blocking or deletion of personal data, please contact our data protection officer with the contact data in this Privacy Policy or the address stated in the section Contact/About us.

Collection of Access Data

The delivery and presentation of the contents through our website technically requires the collection of specific data. When you access our website, these so-called server log files are recorded by us or by the web space provider. These log files do not allow any conclusions about you and your identity. The information in question consists of the name of the website, the file, the current date, the data volume, web browser and its version, the operating system you use, the domain name of your Internet provider, the referrer URL, i.e. the page from which you navigated to our site, and the corresponding IP address. We use this data for the presentation and delivery of our contents as well as for statistical purposes. The information supports the provision and continuous improvement of our offer. We also reserve the right to retrospectively check the data mentioned here if there are reasons to suspect an illegal use of our offer.

Personal Information

Within the framework of data avoidance and data economy, we collect personal data only to the extent and as long as it is necessary for the use of our website or is required by law. We take the protection of your personal data seriously and strictly adhere to the relevant legal regulations and this privacy policy when collecting and processing personal information. If the purpose of data collection ceases to apply or if the end of the legal data retention period has been reached, the collected data will be locked or deleted. Our website can be used regularly without sharing personal information. Where we collect personal information such as your name, address or e-mail-address, these data are collected on a voluntary basis. This data will not be disclosed to third parties without your explicit consent. Please note that the transmission of data via the Internet cannot always be fully secure. Especially in e-mail traffic, protection during the data exchange cannot be guaranteed.

Server Log Files

The server log files are anonymised data that are collected when you access our website. This information does not allow the drawing of any conclusions about you and your identity, for technical reasons, but it is essential for the delivery and presentation of our contents. Furthermore, these data support our statistics and the continuous optimisation of our contents. The typical log files include the date and time of the access, data volume, browser used for the access and its version, operating system used, domain name of your provider, page from which you navigated to our offer (referrer URL) and your IP address. Log files also allow for a detailed examination in case of a suspected illegal use of our website.

SSL encryption

Our website uses SSL encryption for the transmission of confidential or personal content from our users. This encryption is activated, for example, when processing payment transactions and for enquiries you send us via our website. Please make sure that SSL encryption is activated on your side for relevant activities. The use of encryption can easily be identified: The display in your browser’s address bar switches from “http://” to “https://”. Data encrypted via SSL cannot be read by third parties. You should only transmit your confidential information if the SSL encryption is activated. In case of doubts, please contact us.

Objection to receiving advertising e-mails

In the context of the legal requirements of an imprint, we are obliged to publish our contact data. These are often used by third parties to send unwanted advertising and information materials. We hereby object to any submission of advertising materials of any kind that was not explicitly authorised by us. We also explicitly reserve the right to take legal action against the unwanted and unsolicited mailing of advertising material. This particularly applies to so-called spam e-mails, spam letters and spam faxes. We would like to point out that the unauthorised transmission of advertising materials may constitute an offence against competition law, civil law and criminal law. Spam e-mails and spam faxes in particular can result in high claims for damages if they disrupt business operations by congesting mailboxes or fax machines.
