of this website (hereafter: “service”).

The legal foundation of data privacy can be found in the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG).

Access data/server log files

The provider (or his web space provider) collects data about every access to the service (so-called server log files). Access data includes:

Name of the retrieved web page, file, date and time of retrieval, amount of data transferred, notification of successful retrieval, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (previously visited website), IP address and requesting provider.

The provider only uses the log data for statistical evaluations for the purpose of service operation, security and optimization. The provider, however, reserves the right to retrospectively review the log data if, on the basis of concrete evidence, a legitimate suspicion of unlawful use exists.

Handling of personal data

Personal data is information that serves to identify, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person. This includes the name, email address or phone number. Data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites were viewed by someone is also part of personal data.

Personal data is only collected, used and passed on by the provider if this is permitted by law or if the users consents to the data collection.

Contact forms and contacting

When contacting the provider (for example, via the contact form or email), the information provided by the user will be stored for the purpose of processing the request as well as in case follow-up questions arise.

Newsletter

The newsletter serves to inform you about our company and our offers.

If you would like to receive the newsletter, we need a valid email address from you, as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified email address or that the owner of the address agrees to receive the newsletter (double opt-in process). No additional data is collected. This data is only used for the sending of the newsletter and will not be disclosed to third parties.

When you register for the newsletter, we store your IP address and the date of registration. The sole purpose of this storage information is as prove in case a third party misuses an e-mail address and registers for newsletter without the knowledge of the entitled person.

You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the email address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time. The revocation can be completed via a link in the newsletters, in your profile section or by notification via the above contact options.

Integration of services and contents of third parties

It may occur that content from third parties, such as videos from YouTube, maps from GoogleMaps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are included in this website. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third party provider”) receive the IP address of the users. Because without the IP address, they cannot provide the content to the browser of each user. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content. We strive to only use content whose respective providers use the IP address solely for the delivery of the content. We do, however, not have any control over whether the third-party providers store the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes, or not. As far as we are aware of this, we will inform users about it.

Cookies

Cookies are small files that enable the storage of specific device-related information on users’ access devices (PCs, smartphones, etc.). They support the user-friendliness of web pages and thus help users (e.g via the storage of login data). On the other hand, they serve to record statistical data on website usage and enable its analysis for the purpose of improving the offer. Users can influence the use of cookies. Most browsers have an option to restrict or completely prevent the storage of cookies. It is, however, pointed out that the use and especially the comfort of use are limited without cookies.
