Collection of general information

When you visit our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes, for instance, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider and the like. None of the information collected allows you to be identified. This information is necessary for technical reasons, so that the content of websites you visit can be correctly displayed, and is indispensable for the use of the Internet. We statistically evaluate anonymous information of this kind in order to optimise our online presence and the underlying technology.

Cookies

Like many other websites, we use cookies. Cookies are small text files which are transferred from a website server to your hard disk. In this way, we automatically receive certain data regarding your computer and your Internet connection, such as IP address, browser used and operating system.

Cookies cannot be used to run programs or to infect a computer with viruses. With the help of the information contained in cookies, we can make navigation easier for you and enable the correct display of our websites.

In no event will the data collected by us be passed to third parties or combined with personal data without your permission.

You can, of course, in principle also view our website without cookies. Internet browsers are usually set to accept cookies. You can deactivate the use of cookies at any time via your browser settings. Please use the help functions of your Internet browser to find out how to change these settings. Please note that individual functions of our website may not work if you have deactivated the use of cookies.

Registration on our website

When you register to use our personalised services, some personal data, such as your name, address, contact and communications data – e.g. telephone number and e-mail address – are collected. If you are registered with us, you can access content and services which we only offer to registered users. Moreover, registered users have the option at any time, if they so require, to amend or to delete the data provided during registration. We will of course also provide you with access at any time to the personal data concerning your person that is stored by us. We will gladly correct or delete these data at your request, provided that we are bound by no statutory obligations to retain them. In order to contact us in this regard, please use the contact details provided at the end of this privacy policy.

Provision of chargeable services

For the provision of chargeable services, we ask for additional data, such as payment details.

SSL encryption

In order to protect the security of your data during the transmission, we use encryption methods in line with state-of-the-art technology (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.

Newsletter

The data you provide when you register to receive our newsletter are used solely for that purpose. Subscribers can also receive e-mail updates concerning circumstances that are relevant to the service or the registration (for instance, changes to the newsletter offer or technical matters).

For the registration to be effective, we require a valid e-mail address. In order to verify that the registration is carried out by the owner of the e-mail address, we implement the double opt-in method. To this end, we log the order of the newsletter, the sending of a confirmation e-mail and receipt of the reply requested in that e-mail. No further data are collected. The data are used solely for the newsletter distribution and are not passed to any third party.

You can withdraw your consent at any time to the storage of your personal data and their use for newsletter distribution. Each newsletter contains a link which you can use for this purpose. In addition, you can also unsubscribe directly on this website at any time or send us your request to that effect using the contact details at the end of this privacy policy.

Contact form

When you contact us by e-mail or by using the contact form, the information provided by you is saved for the purpose of processing the enquiry and for possible follow-up questions.

Deletion or restriction of data

We abide by the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only save your personal data for as long as necessary to achieve the purposes named here or as envisaged by the diverse retention periods stipulated by the legislator. When the respective purpose no longer applies or after the expiry of these deadlines, the corresponding data will be restricted or deleted as a routine measure and in accordance with the statutory provisions.

Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (hereinafter: “Google”). Google Analytics uses what are known as “cookies”, i.e. text files, that are stored on your computer and that enable analysis of how you use the website. The information generated by cookies about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the implementation of IP anonymisation on these websites, your IP address will be truncated beforehand within the European Union member states or in other states party to the agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional circumstances, the full IP address will be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to deliver other services that are associated with website use and Internet use with regards to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google.

You can prevent cookie storage by setting your browser software accordingly; please note, however, that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. Furthermore, you can prevent Google from collecting the data that has been generated by the cookie on your use of the website (incl. your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link:browser add-on for the deactivation of Google Analytics.

In addition or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can prevent tracking by Google Analytics on our webpages by clicking on this link . To do so, an opt-out cookie will be installed on your device. The collection of data by Google Analytics for this website and for this browser will thus be prevented in future as long as the cookie remains installed on your browser.

Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts)

In order to depict our content correctly and in a graphically appealing way across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google Webfonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/) on this website. Google Webfonts are transferred into your browser cache to avoid multiple loading. If the browser does not support Google Webfonts or prevents access, content will be displayed in a standard font.

The retrieval of script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a link to the operator of the library. It is theoretically possible here, although it is currently unclear whether or not and for what reasons, that operators of corresponding libraries may collect data.

The data protection policy of the library operator Google can be found here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy

Use of Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps API in order to depict geographical information in visual form. By using Google Maps, data about the usage of the map functions by visitors is also collected, processed and used by Google. Further information on the data processed by Google can be found in the Google information on data protection. You can also change your personal data protection settings here. This can be done in the data protection centre.

Detailed instructions on the administration of your own data in connection to Google products can be found here.

Embedded YouTube videos

We embed YouTube videos on some of our websites. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. If you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection will be established with YouTube servers. This will allow YouTube to be notified about what sites you are visiting. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can assign your surfing characteristics to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.

When a YouTube video is started, the provider uses cookies that collect information about the user characteristics.

Users who have deactivated the saving of cookies for the Google Ad program should not expect to any cookies when they watch YouTube videos either. However, YouTube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you would like to prevent this, you have to block the saving of cookies in your browser.

Further information on data protection at “YouTube” can be found in the data protection declaration of the provider at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/

Your right to information, correction, restriction, deletion and objection

You have the right to receive information about the personal data stored at any time. You also have the right to correction, restriction, or, apart from the prescribed data stored to carry out a business transaction, deletion of your personal data. To do so, please contact our data protection officer. The contact details are listed below.

In order to be able to consider restricting data at any time, this data must be kept for monitoring purposes in a lock file. You can also request the deletion of the data if there is no statutory obligation of retention. If such an obligation exists, we will block your data on request.

You can make changes or revoke consent by providing us with appropriate notice with effect for the future.

Amendment to our data protection provisions

We reserve the right to adapt this data protection declaration occasionally so that it always corresponds to the current legal requirements or in order to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. during the introduction of new services. The new data protection declaration will then apply when you visit again.
