The protection and security of personal data is one of our top priorities. Therefore, we adhere strictly to the rules of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). Below, we provide information about the type of data collected and the purposes of such collection:
1. Data transmission/data logging
When you visit this page, the web server automatically registers log files that cannot be assigned to any specific person. These data include, for example, the browser type and version, the operating system used, the referrer URL (previously visited page), the IP address of the requesting computer, the access date and time of the server request, and the client's file request (file name and URL). These data are only collected for the purpose of statistical analysis. We do not disclose these data to third parties for commercial or non-commercial purposes.
2. Use of personal data
Personal information is only collected and processed if you voluntarily disclose it, for example when you submit a request. Unless it is necessary for reasons relating to a business transaction, you may revoke your previous consent for us to store your personal data at any time and with immediate effect in writing (e.g. by email or fax). Your information will not be disclosed to third parties, unless such disclosure is required by law.
3. Information about, modification and deletion of your data
In accordance with current law, at any time you can inquire in writing as to whether we store any data about you and, if so, which specific data we hold. This information will be provided without delay.
4. Security of your data
The personal information you provide will be secured with the help of all technical and organisational security measures so that it cannot be accessed by unauthorised third parties. When sending highly sensitive data or information, we recommend sending it by post because total data security cannot be guaranteed by email.
5. Note regarding Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files stored in your computer which enable analysis of how you use the website. The information generated by the cookie about your website use (including your IP address) will be transmitted to a Google server in the US and stored there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity for its operators and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties as required by law or if said third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Google will never associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; we wish to point out that in this case you may not be able to make full use of all the features of this website. By using this website, you agree that the data Google collects about you may be processed as described above and for the purpose described above.
On some of our web pages, we use so-called "session cookies" to facilitate your use of our website. These are small text files stored on your hard drive only for the duration of your visit to our website and, depending on your browser settings, deleted when you exit the browser. These cookies do not retrieve any information about you stored on your hard drive and do not interfere with your computer or files. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies automatically. You can deactivate cookie storage or set your browser so it notifies you when cookies are sent.
