The data collected on this website is processed by the website operator. The operator’s contact details can be found in the website’s imprint/legal notice.
How do we collect your data?
Some data is collected when you provide it to us. This could, for example, be data you enter in a contact form.
Other data is collected automatically by our IT systems when you visit the website. This data is primarily technical data such as the browser, time and operating system you are using when accessing the page. This data is collected automatically as soon as you enter our website.
What do we use your data for?
Part of the data is collected to ensure the proper functioning of the website. Other data can be used to analyze how visitors use the site.
What are your rights regarding your data?
At any time, you have the right, free of charge, to request information about the data stored, its origin, its recipients and the purpose of its collection. You also have the right to request that it be corrected, blocked or deleted. You can contact us at any time using the address given in the imprint/legal notice, if you have further questions on the issue of privacy and data protection. You may also, of course, file a complaint with the competent regulatory authorities.
2. General information and mandatory information
Please note that data transmitted on the internet (e.g. via email communication) may be subject to security breaches. Complete protection of your data from third-party access is not possible.
Notice concerning the party responsible for this website
The party responsible for processing data on this website is:
Telephone: + 49 2226 15554
The responsible party is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (names, email addresses, etc.).
Revocation of your consent to processing your data
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You may revoke your consent at any time with future effect. An informal email making this request will suffice. The lawfulness of processing your data prior to reception of your request is not affected by your revocation.
Right to file complaints with regulatory supervisory authorities
If there has been a breach of data protection legislation, the person affected may file a complaint with the competent regulatory authority. The competent regulatory authority for matters related to data protection legislation is the data protection officer of the German federal state in which our company is headquartered. A list of data protection officers and their contact details can be found at the following link: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have data which we process automatically based on your consent or in fulfillment of a contract delivered to yourself or to a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you require the direct transfer of data to another responsible party, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and for the protection of the transmission of confidential content, such as the inquiries you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection in your browser’s address line when it changes from “http://” to “https://” and the lock icon is displayed in your browser’s address bar.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, blocking, deletion
Within the framework of existing legislation, you have the right to obtain information, at any time and free of charge, on any of your personal data that is stored as well as its origin, the recipient and the purpose for which it has been processed. You also have the right to have this data corrected, blocked or deleted. You can contact us at any time using the address given in our imprint/legal notice, if you have further questions on the topic of personal data.
Opposition to promotional emails
We hereby expressly prohibit the use of contact data published in the context of this website’s legal notice with regard to sending promotional and information material not expressly requested. The website operator reserves the right to take specific legal action, if unsolicited advertising material, such as email spams, is received.
3. Data collection on our website
Most of the cookies we use are so-called ‘session cookies‘. They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in your device’s memory until you delete them. These cookies make it possible to recognize your browser when you visit the site next time.
Server log files
The website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us in “server log files”. These are:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
- IP address
This data will not be combined with data from other sources.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract.
Should you send us questions via the contact form, we will collect the data entered in the form including the contact details you provide, to answer your question and any follow-up questions. We do not share this information without your permission.
We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1)(a) DSGVO. You may revoke your consent at any time. An informal email with this request will suffice. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.
We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer pertains (e.g. after fulfilling your request). Any mandatory statutory provisions, especially those regarding mandatory data retention periods, remain unaffected by this provision.
