Privacy Policy

Data privacy

The operators of this website take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations as well as this privacy policy.
Use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data. If personal data (for example name, address or e-mail addresses) is collected on our website, this is always done on a voluntary basis wherever possible. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your explicit consent.
We wish to point out that the transmission of data on the internet (e.g. when communicating via e-mail) may have security flaws. It is not possible to completely protect the data from being accessed by third parties.

Cookies

In some cases, the websites use what are known as cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies are used to make our offering more user-friendly, more effective, and more secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and are saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies that we use are known as "session cookies". They are automatically deleted after your visit ends. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit.
You can configure your browser in such a way that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only permit cookies on a case-by-case basis, reject the acceptance of cookies for specific cases or in general, and activate automatic deletion of the cookies when the browser is closed. If cookies are disabled, this may restrict the functionality of this website.

Contact form/registration

If you send enquiries to us via the contact form, we will store the details you provide on the enquiry form, including the contact details you specify there, for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event that there are any follow-up questions. We will not pass on these details without your consent.

Newsletter data

If you want to subscribe to the newsletter offered on the website, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified e-mail address, and that you agree to receive the newsletter. No other data is collected. We use this data exclusively for sending out the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties. You may at any time withdraw the consent you have given to the storage of the data, the e-mail address as well as their use for sending out the newsletter, for example via the "Unsubscribe" link in the newsletter.

Facebook plugins (Like button)

Plugins of the social network Facebook, provided by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA, are integrated on our website. You can recognise the Facebook plugins from the Facebook logo or the "Like button" on our website. You can find an overview of the Facebook plugins here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
When you visit our website, the plugin establishes a direct link between your browser and the Facebook server. This tells Facebook that you have visited our website with your IP address. If you click on the Facebook "Like button" while you are logged into your Facebook account, you can create a link to the contents of our website on your Facebook profile. This allows Facebook to assign the visit to our website to your user account. We wish to point out that we as the website provider are not notified about the content of the transmitted data and the way it is used by Facebook. You can find further information about this in Facebook's privacy policy at https://facebook.com/privacy/explanation.
If you do not want Facebook to be able to assign the visit to our website to your Facebook user account, please log out of your Facebook user account.

Twitter

Functions of the service Twitter are embedded on our website. These functions are provided by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. When you use Twitter and the "Retweet" function, the websites that you visit will be linked to your Twitter account and notified to other users. Data will also be transferred to Twitter in the process. We wish to point out that we as the website provider are not notified about the content of the transmitted data and the way it is used by Twitter. You can find further information about this in Twitter's privacy policy at https://twitter.com/privacy.
You can amend your Twitter privacy settings in the account settings at: https://twitter.com/account/settings.

YouTube

This website contains at least one plugin from YouTube, which belongs to Google Inc., based in San Bruno/California, USA. As soon as you visit pages on our website that contain a YouTube plugin, a link is established to the servers of YouTube. This tells the YouTube server which specific page on our website you have visited. If you are also logged into your YouTube account, you would enable YouTube to assign your browsing habits directly to your personal profile. You can remove this assignment possibility if you log out of your account beforehand. You can obtain further information about how your data is collected and used by YouTube in the site's privacy policy at www.youtube.com

SSL encryption

This website uses SSL encryption for reasons of security and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as the requests that you send to us as the website operator. You can tell that a connection is encrypted because the browser address bar changes from "http://" to "https://" and from the padlock symbol in your browser bar.
If SSL encryption is enabled, the data that you send to us cannot also be read by third parties.

Use of Webalizer

In the version that we use, the web analysis tool "Webalizer" works with anonymisation of IP addresses. The IP addresses are shortened by the last three digits prior to any use for analysis of user behaviour so that it is no longer possible to establish a link to a person and you remain anonymous to us as the user. The anonymised data records are stored on our web server and evaluated in-house exclusively for statistical purposes. This data is not passed on to third parties at any time.

Right to information, erasure, blocking

You have the right at any time to receive free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of the data processing, as well as a right to rectification, blocking or erasure of this data. In relation to this and other questions relating to personal data, you can contact us at any time using the address which is specified in the legal notice.
