The protection of your privacy is very important to us.
In the following, we inform you about how we have implemented the protection of your data on our website:
In principle, you can use the website without registering as a user. No software or hardware techniques are used to collect the user's e-mail address or other personal data.
Personal data is only collected if you expressly provide it to us. Your data will always be treated confidentially and will only be used for the purpose for which it was given to us.
Upon request, you have the right to receive information free of charge about the personal data stored about you. In addition, you have the right to correct, block and delete this data in accordance with the statutory provisions.
This website contains links to other websites or social media pages. If you click on such a link that leads to other third-party websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies. Please check their privacy policies when using these websites.
The Website, email traffic, online services, advertising and interactive applications may use "cookies" to optimise our services.
What is a "cookie"?
A "cookie" is a sequence of text characters that we transmit to the browser's cookie file on your computer's hard drive via our web server. This enables our website to recognise you when a connection is made between our web server and your browser. The main purpose of a cookie is to recognise visitors to the website so that our web server can present you with a more personalised and responsive website.
Two types of cookies are used on this website:
Session cookies: these are temporary cookies that remain in your browser's cookie file until you leave our website. These cookies are necessary for certain applications or functions of the website to run properly.
Persistent cookies: We may use persistent cookies for a better user experience (e.g. to provide optimal navigation). These are cookies that remain in your browser's cookie file for an extended period of time. This period depends on the settings of your Internet browser. Persistent cookies allow information to be sent to a web server each time you visit the website. Persistent cookies are also known as tracking cookies.
If you would like to learn more about cookies, there are many publications available on the subject. See for example: http://www.allaboutcookies.org
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site.
The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, by activating IP anonymisation on this website, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
When you access an individual page, web servers record the name of the file accessed, the date and time of access, the amount of data transferred, any error messages and, if applicable, the operating system and browser software of your computer as well as the website from which you are visiting us in a log file by default. We use the log file data for the purposes stated under "Use of Google Analytics" and to ensure system security and protection against misuse (e.g. detection and defence against hacker attacks).
