Below, you will find information on which data is recorded when you visit our homepage and how it is used.

The data collected will be used exclusively for the above-mentioned purposes. Your personal data will not be disclosed to third parties.

 

1. Data Transfer/Data Logging

Every time a user accesses a page on our website or retrieves a file, the access data referring to this procedure will be stored in a log file on our server.

Each data record consists of:

  • Referrer URL (the previously visited website)
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Name of accessed file, date and time of request ("time stamp")
  • Transferred data volume, access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
  • Type of web browser (e.g. Mozilla, Chrome, Internet Explorer, Apple Safari, Opera, etc.)
  • Full IP address

This data will only be used for the purpose of error analysis. The log files will be automatically deleted after 365 days. Disclosure to third parties for commercial or noncommercial purposes does not occur.

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is essential for the proper operation of the website. There is consequently no possibility to object on the part of the user.

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

 

2. Use of Personal Data

Personal data are only collected and processed if you voluntarily disclose this information to us, e.g. in the course of an enquiry. If there are no necessary reasons in connection with a business transaction, you can revoke the previously granted approval of your personal data storage at any time with immediate effect (e.g. via e‑mail or fax). Your personal data will not be disclosed to third parties unless you have consented to this disclosure or unless the disclosure is required by law.

 

3. Information, Modification and Deletion of Your Data

In accordance with applicable law, you can always ask us in writing whether and which personal data we have stored about you. You will receive a corresponding notification immediately.

 

4. Security of Your Data

Your personal data made available to us will be secured by taking all technical and organizational security measures so that they are inaccessible to unauthorized third parties. When sending very sensitive data or information, it is recommended to use the post office, as a complete data security cannot be guaranteed by e-mail. For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential data, this website uses an SSL encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the change in the browser line from "http://" to "https://" and the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL encryption is enabled, the data you submit to us cannot be read by third parties.

 

5. Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google"). The use includes the "Universal Analytics" operating mode. This facilitates the assignment of data, sessions and interactions across several devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus the analysis of a user's activities across devices.

Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. In case of activation of the IP anonymization, Google will truncate/anonymize the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. On behalf of the website provider Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and Internet usage to the website provider. Our legitimate interest in data processing also lies in these purposes. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Section 15 para. 3 TMG and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The data sent by us and linked to cookies, user-identifiers (e.g. User-IDs) or advertising-identifiers are automatically deleted after 14 months. Data whose retention period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month. Further information concerning the terms and conditions of use and data privacy can be found at www.google.com/analytics/terms/gb.html or at https://www.google.de/intl/en_uk/policies/.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. Furthermore you can prevent Google's collection and use of data (cookies and IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB. To prevent Universal Analytics from collecting data across several devices, you must opt-out on all systems used. You can refuse the use of Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set on the computer, which prevents the future collection of your data when visiting this website: Disable Google Analytics

The legal basis for the processing of personal data using technically necessary cookies is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies for analytical purposes is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR, if the data subject has given his explicit consent.

 

5.1 Use of Script Libraries (Google Web Fonts)

In order to render our content correctly and graphically appealing across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries on this website, such as Google Web Fonts (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.

The privacy policy of the library operator Google is available under: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy

 

6. Use of Cookies

On some of our pages we use "session cookies" to make it easier for you to use our website. These are small text files which are stored on your hard drive for the duration of your visit to our website and, depending on the setting on your browser, are deleted upon closing the browser. These cookies do not retrieve any information about you stored on your hard drive and do not affect your PC or files. Although most browsers are initially set to accept cookies, you may reset your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie or to reject cookies altogether.

So-called "third party" cookies are set by Google Analytics (see Section 5)

The legal basis for the processing of personal data using technically necessary cookies is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies for analytical purposes is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR, if the data subject has given his explicit consent.

 

7. Social Media Buttons

The social media buttons for Twitter or Facebook on our website are not integrated via a social plugin, but simply icons that directly link to our respective Facebook and Twitter site. When you visit our website, no direct connection to Twitter or Facebook servers is established.

 

8. Changes to this Privacy Policy

We will update this privacy policy from time to time to ensure optimal protection of your personal data. Please review this policy periodically to stay informed about how we protect your data and continue to improve the contents of our website. Should we make any substantial changes in the way we collect, use, or share your personal information, we will notify you by prominently posting notice of the changes on our website. By using this website, you are consenting to the terms of our privacy policy.
