Purposes of data processing by responsible body and third parties

Data that can include personal information is generally collected in all online interactions. If you do not agree, please refrain from accessing this website.

We process your personal information only for the purposes stated in this privacy policy. Other than for the purposes mentioned, your personal data will not be transmitted to third parties.

Collection of general information when visiting our website

When you access our website, a cookie automatically records information of a general nature. This information (‘server log files’) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the name of your Internet provider, and the like. None of this information allows conclusions about you.

This information is technically required to correctly provide you with the contents of the websites you requested and is compulsory when using the Internet. It is processed in particular for:

  • Ensuring a hassle-free set-up of the website’s connection;
  • Ensuring a smooth use of our website;
  • Evaluating system security and stability;
  • Further administrative purposes.

The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest in the purposes for data collection mentioned above. We do not use your data to draw conclusions about you. The only recipients of the data are the responsible body and possibly the processor.

Anonymous information of this kind may be statistically evaluated by us to optimize our website and underlying technology.

Cookies

Like many other websites, we also use so-called ‘cookies’. Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. This automatically provides us with certain information such as IP address, browser used, operating system, and your Internet connection.

Cookies cannot be used to launch programs or to transfer viruses to a computer. Based on the information contained in the cookies, we can facilitate your navigation and enable the correct display of our web pages.

In no case will the data we collect be passed on to third parties or a link with personal data established without your consent.

Of course, you can also look at our website without cookies. Internet browsers are usually set up to accept cookies. As a rule, you can disable the use of cookies at any time via your browser settings. Please use your Internet browser’s help features to find out how to change these settings. Please note that some features of our website may not work if you have disabled the use of cookies.
SSL encryption

To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption techniques (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.

Newsletter

Your email address will suffice to receive our newsletter. When you register to receive our newsletter, the data you provide will be used exclusively for this purpose. Subscribers may also be notified by email about circumstances relevant to this service or registration (e.g. changes to the newsletter offer or technical conditions).

We need a valid email address for effective registration. To verify that a registration is in fact carried out by the owner of an email address, we use the ‘double-opt-in’ procedure. For this purpose, we record the ordering of the newsletter, the dispatch of a confirmation email, and the receipt of the requested reply. No additional data is collected. The data is used exclusively for the distribution of the newsletter and is not forwarded to third parties.

If you receive a newsletter from us, we will evaluate the opening and reading habits for marketing purposes.

You can revoke your consent to the storage of your personal data and their use for the distribution of the newsletter at any time. Every newsletter includes an appropriate link. You can also unsubscribe at any time and inform us of your request through the contact listed at the end of this Privacy Policy.

Contact form

If you contact us via email or contact form about any questions you may have, you are voluntarily giving us consent for establishing contact. The information you provide will be stored for processing your request and for possible follow-up questions.

Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (hereinafter called ‘Google‘). Google Analytics uses so-called ‘cookies’, which are text files that are stored on your computer and allow an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is generally transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymization on these websites, your IP address will be truncated by Google beforehand within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The complete IP address will only be transferred to a Google server in the United States and truncated there in exceptional cases. 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 activity, and to provide other services related to website activity and Internet usage to the operator of the website. Your browser’s IP address provided by Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. 

The processing of the data serves to evaluate the use of the website and to compile reports on website activity. Other related services will be provided based on website and Internet usage. Processing is based on the website operator’s legitimate interests.

You can prevent the storage of the cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to fully use this website’s features. In addition, you can prevent the collection by Google of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) as well as the processing of this data by
Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in: browser add-on to deactivate Google Analytics

Use of script libraries (Google web fonts)

We use script libraries and font libraries such as Google Webfonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/) on this website to correctly and graphically appealing display our content across browsers. Google web fonts are transferred to your browser’s cache to prevent multiple downloading. Should the browser fail to support Google web fonts or prevent access, the content will be displayed in a standard font.
Accessing script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library’s operator. This makes it possible in theory – it is currently unclear, however, whether this is done and if so, for what purpose – for the operators of such libraries to collect data. 
The privacy policy of library operator Google can be found here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

Use of Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps API to visually display geographic information. When Google Maps is used, Google also collects, processes and uses data about the use of map features by visitors. For more information about Google’s data processing, please refer to Google’s privacy policy. This is where you can also change your personal privacy settings in the data protection center.

Changes to our Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to amend this Privacy Policy to always comply with current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in our Privacy Policy, e.g. when introducing new services. The new Privacy Policy will apply to your return visit.
