Collection of general information
Certain general information is automatically collected when you access this website. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser and the operating system that you use, your Internet service provider’s domain name and other similar data. None of the information collected can be used to identify you personally. It is needed for technical purposes to ensure we can deliver the website content you requested correctly, and is an unavoidable consequence of using the Internet. We perform statistical analyses of this kind of anonymous information in order to optimize our website and the technology underlying it.
Cookies cannot be used to run programs or to transfer viruses to a computer. We use the information they contain to make it easier for you to navigate and to ensure that the website displays correctly.
Under no circumstances will the data that we collect be made available to third parties, nor will they be linked with any personal data without your consent.
This website uses state-of-the-art encryption technology (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS to ensure your data are protected during transmission.
If you contact us by e-mail or using the website contact form, the information you provide will be stored so that we can handle your inquiry and answer any possible follow-up questions.
We use Google reCAPTCHA to determine whether data submitted using this contact form have been entered by a human or a computer. Google uses the following technical data to determine whether information comes from humans or computers: the IP address of the device used, the website using reCAPTCHA that is being visited and the date and duration of the visit, the identification data for the browser type/operating system type used, your Google account if you are logged in, and mouse movements within the reCAPTCHA frame. The legal basis for processing these data is provided by Article 6 (1) letter f of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We have a legitimate interest in processing these data in order to ensure the security of this website and to protect it against automated data entry (attacks).
Deleting and blocking access to data
We comply with the principles of data avoidance and data minimization. We only store personal data for as long as is needed for the purposes stated here, or for the various different statutory retention periods. Once we no longer need your data for the purposes for which we collected it or once these retention periods have expired, access to the relevant data is blocked, or the data are deleted, as a matter of course in line with the statutory requirements.
Your right to information, to data rectification, blocking or erasure, and to object to processing
You have the right to obtain information on your personal data that is stored by us at any time. You also have the right to demand that your personal data be rectified, blocked or – except in the case of data that is rquired to be retained to process business transactions – erased. If you wish to exercise these rights with effect for the future, please inform us of this.
To ensure that access to data can be blocked at all times, the data concerned must be stored in a lock file for control purposes. You can also demand that the data is erased, provided that no statutory retention obligations apply. Where such obligations do exist, we will block your data on request.
You can make changes or revoke your consent with future effect by notifying us of this.
We reserve the right to adapt this data privacy statement as and when required in order to ensure that it complies at all times with current legal requirements, or to adapt it to reflect changes in our services, e.g. when new offerings are introduced. In such cases the revised data privacy statement will apply to all future visits by you.
