If you contact us, the data you provide will be processed for the purpose of handling your inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent. We delete your personal data if they are no longer required and/or the deletion does not conflict with any legal retention periods. The data processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (a) and/or Art. 6 (1) (b) of the GDPR.

When you use our website, we collect certain information (for further details, please refer to the section “Server log files”). 

The provider of the website automatically collects and stores information (browser type and browser version, operating system used, referrer URL, host name of the accessing computer, time of the server request and IP address) in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits.

The collected data is used to ensure the smooth connection of the website, to ensure the straightforward use of our website and to evaluate system security and stability. We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively if we become aware of specific indications of unlawful use. A combination of this data with other data sources is not made.

The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR. The legitimate interest follows from the purposes for data collection listed above.

Session cookies
We only use technically necessary session cookies on our website. Cookies are text files or other storage technologies that are placed and stored on your computer by the Internet browser you use. Through these cookies, certain information, such as your browser or location data or your IP address, will be processed to an individual extent. 

These session cookies are technically necessary for the proper functioning of this website and they make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure, as the processing enables, for example, the display of our website in different languages (and means that your language preference is remembered for your next visit).

The legal basis for the processing of your data is our legitimate interest in improving the functionality of our website and its proper functioning (section 165 para 2 of the TKG 2021 in conjunction with Art. 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR).

We use Matomo Cloud for our website. This is an analysis tool with which we can analyse the use of our website. Your IP address, the web page(s) of our website that you visit, the website that linked to our website (referrer URL), the time you spend on our website and the frequency with which you visit one of our web pages are processed.

Matomo is configured on our website in such a way that no cookie is set on your device via your Internet browser. Your data will not be transferred to third countries outside the European Economic Area.

In addition, we use Matomo with the anonymization function “Anonymize Visitor IPs”. This anonymization function shortens your IP address by two bytes so that it is impossible to assign it to you or to the Internet connection you are using.

If you object to this processing, you also have the option of cancelling the analysis by way of the so-called opt-out. By confirming the link

a cookie is stored on your device via your Internet browser, which prevents further analysis. Please note, however, that you must click the above link again if you delete the cookies stored on your device.

If, in the course of our processing, we disclose data to other persons and companies (processors or third parties), transmit it to them or otherwise grant them access to the data, this will only be done on the basis of legal permission, if you have consented, if a legal obligation provides for this or on the basis of our legitimate interests.

All processors are contractually obligated by us on the basis of Art. 28 of the GDPR to comply with the applicable data protection provisions.

We use appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect your (personal) data from unauthorized, illegal or accidental access, processing, loss, use and manipulation.

Notwithstanding our security measures, it cannot be ruled out that information you disclose to us via the Internet, in particular in the context of unencrypted e-mails, may be viewed and used by other persons.

Please note that we therefore accept no liability whatsoever for the disclosure of information due to errors in data transmission not caused by us and/or unauthorized access by third parties.

There is no automated decisionmaking or profiling.

We reserve the right to adapt the information provided in this privacy policy to any changes in legislation and/or jurisdiction without prior notice. The valid version is the current version published here.

You have the right to obtain information (for details, see Art. 15 of the GDPR) about your personal data as well as to request the correction (for details, see Art. 16 of the GDPR), the deletion (for details, see Art. 17 of the GDPR), the restriction (for details, see Art. 18 of the GDPR) of the processing as well as the data transfer (for details, see Art. 20 of the GDPR) of your specified personal data.

You may also object to the processing of your personal data under certain circumstances (if your personal data is processed on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR; for details, see Art. 21 of the GDPR).

If the processing is based on consent, you also have the right to revoke your consent at any time (for details, see Art. 7 (3) of the GDPR); the revocation does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation has taken place.

You can address these requests to the contact details mentioned under point 1 (e.g. by e-mail, fax, letter), stating your request.

To protect your privacy and security, we reserve the right to verify your identity before taking any of the above actions.

The protection and lawful processing of your personal data is important to us. If you have any questions or concerns about the processing of your personal data, please contact us using the contact details provided under point 1 (e.g. by e-mail, fax, letter). Should you nevertheless be of the opinion that the processing of your personal data is unlawful, you can additionally contact the competent supervisory authority.
