Thank you for your interest in our website and our products. The protection of your privacy is important to us. That is why we are informing you in detail below about the processing of personal data when providing our services on this and connected websites. With regard to the terms used, we refer to the definition in Art. 4 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Collection, processing and use of personal data
The website operator or page provider collects data about accesses to the site and saves them as “server log files”. The following data is logged in this way:
- visited websites
- time of access
- amount of data sent in bytes
- source / reference from which you came to the corresponding page
- browser used
- operating system used
- used IP address
The data collected are only used for statistical evaluations and to improve the website. However, the website operator reserves the right to retrospectively check the server log files if there are concrete indications of illegal use.
Common browsers offer the setting option not to allow cookies. Note: There is no guarantee that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions if you make the appropriate settings.
Handling of personal data
The website operator collects, uses and passes on your personal data only if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the data being collected.
Personal data includes all information that is used to identify your person and which can be traced back to you – for example your name, your email address and telephone number.
Handling of contact details
If you contact the website operator using the contact options offered, your details will be saved so that they can be used to process and answer your request. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.
Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (following: Google). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, ie text files that are stored on your computer and that enable your use of the website to be analyzed. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymization on this website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is only transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
The purpose of data processing is to evaluate the use of the website and to compile reports on activities on the website. Based on the use of the website and the Internet, further related services are then to be provided. The processing is based on the legitimate interest of the website operator.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading the browser plug-in available under the following link and install:
http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de (Browser Add On to deactivate Google Analytics).
In order to protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) over HTTPS.
User rights: information, correction and deletion
As a user, you will receive free information on your request about which personal data has been stored about you. If your request does not conflict with a legal obligation to store data (e.g. data retention), you have the right to have incorrect data corrected and to have your personal data blocked or deleted.
If you have further questions about data protection on this website and all tools and plug-ins used, please contact the website operator directly.
Revocation and objection
You can object to the processing of your personal data at any time, provided we base the processing on a weighing of interests. This is the case, in particular, if the processing is not required to fulfill a contract with you. If you exercise such an objection, we ask you to explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data as we have done. In the event of your justified objection, we will examine the situation and stop or adjust the data processing, unless we can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend of legal claims.
You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes at any time. If you object to the processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes.
