Privacy Policy

Data Protection
The operators of these web pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the legal data protection regulations as well as this data protection statement.
The use of our website is normally possible without giving personal data. If personal data (for example name, address or e-mail addresses) are collected on our pages, this is, as far as possible, always done on a voluntary basis. These data will not be passed on to third parties without your explicit consent.
We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (for example, when communicating via e-mail) can have security gaps. Full protection of the data from access by third parties is not possible.

Cookies
The web pages partly use so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and contain no viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and safer. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your computer and which your browser saves.
Most of the cookies we use are so called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser on the next visit.
You can set your browser to inform you about the setting of cookies, to allow cookies only in individual cases, to exclude the acceptance of cookies for specific cases or in general, and to activate the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed. The functionality of this website may be restricted when cookies are deactivated.

Server Log Files
The provider of the web pages automatically collects and saves information, which your browser automatically transmits to us, in so-called server log files. These are:
– Browser type and browser version
– Operating system used
– Referrer URL
– Hostname of the accessing computer
– Time of server request
These data cannot be attributed to specific persons. This data is not merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to review these data at a later date, if we are aware of any specific indications for unlawful use.

If you send us inquiries by means of a contact form, your information from the inquiry form, including the contact details provided there, will be stored for the purpose of processing the inquiry and for the case of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.

These data are based on Google’s interest-based advertising as well as third party visitor data. This data cannot be assigned to a particular person. You can disable this feature at any time through the display settings in your Google Account, or you can prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics in full, as described in the section ” Objection against data collection”.
