Collecting general information
When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically recorded. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and the like. This is only information that does not allow conclusions about your person. This information is technically necessary to correctly deliver the contents of web pages requested by you and is mandatory when using the internet. Anonymous information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us to optimize our website and the underlying technology.
Data collection on this website
Each time the page is called, the following data is automatically saved by the web server:
- Browser type / version
- used operating system
- Referrer URL (the previously visited page)
- Host name of the accessing computer (IP address)
- Time of the server request
- This data can not be assigned to any person. There is no merge of this data with other data sources.
In addition, personal information will only be stored if you send it to us actively, e.g. as part of a registration, a request via a form, or to receive a newsletter.
Like many other websites, we also use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a web page server to your hard disk. This automatically gives us certain data, such as: IP address, browser used, operating system from your computer and your connection to the Internet.
Most of the cookies used are so-called “session cookies”, which are automatically deleted after the end of a visit. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses.
Cookies can not be used to launch programs or to transfer viruses to a computer. Based on the information contained in cookies, we can facilitate navigation and enable the correct display of our websites.
In no case will the data collected by us be passed on to third parties or a link with personal data will be established without your consent.
If you contact us via e-mail or contact form, the information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing the request and for possible follow-up questions.
Deletion or blocking of data
We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. Therefore, we only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as provided for by the various storage periods provided for by law. After discontinuation of the respective purpose or expiration of these deadlines, the corresponding data are routinely and according to the legal regulations blocked or deleted.
Using script libraries (Google Webfonts)
In order to render our content correctly and visually appealing across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries on this website. For example, Google Webfonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/). Google web fonts are transferred to the cache of your browser to prevent multiple loading. If the browser does not support Google Web fonts or prohibits access, content will be displayed in a standard font.
The call of script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the operator of the library. It is theoretically possible – but currently also unclear whether and if so for what purposes – that operators of such libraries collect data.
Your rights to information, correction, suspension, cancellation and opposition
You have the right to receive information about your personal data stored by us at any time. Likewise, you have the right to correct, block or, except for the required data storage for business, deletion of your personal information. Please contact our data protection officer. The contact details can be found at the bottom.
For a data lock to be taken into account at all times, these data must be stored in a lock file for control purposes. You can also request the deletion of the data, as long as there is no legal archiving obligation. As far as such an obligation exists, we lock your data on request.
You can make changes or revoke your consent by notifying us with effect for the future.
To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption techniques (such as SSL) over HTTPS.
