Privacy Policy

Data protection

The operators of this Website take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data in confidence and in conformity with the provisions of data protection legislation and with this Privacy Policy.
It is generally possible to use our Website without providing personal data. If personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail addresses) are collected on our Web pages, this is invariably done on a voluntary basis, insofar as possible. These data are not shared with third parties without your explicit consent.
We wish to point out that the transmission of data over the Internet (e.g. in communication by e-mail) can be liable to security vulnerability. Seamless protection of data against third-party access is not possible.


Cookies

In some instances the Website uses what are termed cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain any viruses. The aim of cookies is to make our services more user-friendly, more effective and more secure. Cookies are small text files placed on your computer that your browser stores.
Most of the cookies we use are “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser during your next visit. You can adjust your browser in such a way that you are informed about the use of cookies and allow cookies only on a case-by-case basis, exclude the use of cookies for specific cases or in general, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser closes. Deactivating cookies can limit the functionality of this Website.
Server log files
The Website provider gathers and stores information automatically in server log files, which your browser transmits to us automatically.
This is:

  • type and version of your browser
  • operating system used
  • referrer URL
  • host name of the accessing computer
  • time of the server access

These data are not attributable to specific persons. These data are not used in conjunction with other data sources. We reserve the right to subsequently scrutinise these data if we become aware of concrete indications of unlawful use.

Contact form

If you address enquiries to us via the contact form, we store your details from the enquiry form including the contact data you indicate on the form for the purpose of processing the enquiry and for the event of follow-up queries. We do not share these data without your consent.
Newsletter data
If you wish to receive the Newsletter offered on the Website, we need an e-mail address from you and information that enables us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address and agree to receiving the Newsletter.
To ensure a consensual transmission of the Newsletter, we use the double opt-in procedure, whereby the potential recipient is included on a mailing list. Afterwards the user receives a confirmation e-mail enabling him/her to confirm the registration in a legally watertight way. Only if the user confirms is the address actively included on the mailing list.
We use these data solely for sending out the information requested and offers.
The Newsletter software used is Newsletter2Go. Your data are transmitted to Newsletter2Go GmbH. Newsletter2Go is forbidden from selling your data and using them for purposes other than sending out newsletters. Newsletter2Go is a German, certified provider selected in accordance with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation and the German Data Protection Act.
For more information go to: https://www.newsletter2go.de/informationen-newsletter-empfaenger/
You can revoke your consent to the storing of the data, e-mail address and their use for dispatching the Newsletter at any time, such as by using the "Unsubscribe" link in the Newsletter.
The data protection legislation measures are constantly subject to technical innovations. We therefore request that you find out about our data protection measures at regular intervals by perusing our Privacy Policy.
