Handling of personal data
The use of our website is usually possible without providing personal data. If you provide us with personal data, this is done on a voluntary basis.

We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet can have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible. All data on this site will be transmitted encrypted.

Your rights concerned
As a user, you have the right to receive free information on request about which personal data about you has been stored. You also have the right to have incorrect data corrected and to have your personal data processed or deleted. If applicable, you can also exercise your right to data portability. If you believe that your data have been processed unlawfully, you can lodge a complaint with the relevant supervisory authority.

Purposes of data processing by the controller and third parties
We process your personal data only for the purposes stated in this privacy policy. Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties for purposes other than those mentioned. We will only pass on your personal data to third parties if:

  • you have given your express consent,
  • the processing is necessary for the execution of a contract with you,
    the processing is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation,
  • the processing is necessary to protect legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in not disclosing your data.

Deletion or blocking of the data
We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as this is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as required by the legal storage periods stipulated by law. After the respective purpose has ceased to apply or these periods have expired, the corresponding data will be blocked or deleted in accordance with the legal provisions.

Collection of general information when visiting our website
When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected using a cookie. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and similar information. This is exclusively information which does not allow any conclusions about your person.

This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the contents of websites requested by you and is mandatory when using the Internet. It is processed in particular for the following purposes:

  • Ensuring that the website can be connected without problems,
  • Ensuring a smooth use of our website,
  • Evaluation of system security and stability and
  • for other administrative purposes.

The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest from the aforementioned purposes for data collection. We do not use your data to draw conclusions about your person. The recipients of the data are only the responsible body and, if applicable, processors.

Anonymous information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us, if necessary, in order to optimize our Internet presence and the technology behind it.

Range measurement & Cookies

This website uses cookies for pseudonymous range measurement, which are transferred to the user’s browser either from our server or the server of third parties. Cookies are small files which are stored on your end device. Your browser accesses these files. The use of cookies increases the user-friendliness and security of this website.

If you do not want cookies to be stored on your terminal device for range measurement, you can object to the use of these files here:

  • Directly via the script to our site:
    Disable data collection via Google Analytics.

Common browsers offer the setting option not to allow cookies. Note: It is not guaranteed that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions if you make the appropriate settings.

Collection of access data and log files
We, or our hosting provider, on the basis of our legitimate interests as defined in Art. 6 Par. 1 lit. f. DSGVO data about every access to the server on which this service is located (so-called server log files). The access data includes the name of the accessed website, file, date and time of access, transferred data volume, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited site), IP address and the requesting provider.

These data cannot be assigned to specific persons. This data is not merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to check this data subsequently if we become aware of concrete indications of illegal use.

Contact form
If you contact us by e-mail or contact form with regard to questions of any kind, you give us your voluntary consent for the purpose of contacting us. For this purpose, you are required to provide a valid e-mail address. This serves to assign the inquiry and to answer it afterwards. The indication of further data is optional. The information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing your enquiry and for possible follow-up questions. We will delete your personal data after processing your inquiry.

Integration of third party services and content
It can happen that within this online offer third party content, such as videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are integrated. This always presupposes that the providers of these contents (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) are aware of the IP address of the users. This is because without the IP address they would not be able to send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore necessary for the display of these contents. We make every effort to use only such content whose respective providers use the IP address only to deliver the content. However, we have no influence on this if the third-party providers store the IP address for statistical purposes, for example. As far as we are aware of this, we inform the users about it.

Changes to our privacy policy
We reserve the right to adapt this data protection declaration so that it always meets the current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services. The new data protection declaration then applies to your renewed visit.

What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are stored by the web browser on the user’s terminal device to store certain information. The next time our website is accessed using the same terminal device, the information stored in cookies is sent back to our website (“First Party Cookie”) or another website to which the cookie belongs (“Third Party Cookie”).

By means of the information stored and returned in the cookie, the respective website recognizes that the user has already accessed and visited it with the web browser of his or her terminal device. We use this information in order to provide the user with the best possible display of the website according to his preferences.

However, only the cookie itself is identified on the end device. Any further storage of personal data is only carried out if the user gives us his explicit consent or if this storage is absolutely necessary in order to be able to use the service offered and accessed.

Cookies, which are not absolutely necessary to provide the services on this website, are only used after consent has been given. By agreeing to the use of cookies on the basis of a notice (“cookie banner”) provided by us on the website, the user agrees to the use of cookies.

Cookies that are absolutely necessary cannot be deactivated or activated individually. The user has the possibility to adjust his cookie settings at any time or generally deactivate cookies in his browser (see item “Deactivation or deletion of all cookies”).

The user can object to the use of functional cookies at any time by adjusting his cookie settings at the end of the website accordingly.
