Acquisition of general information
When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser used, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider, and similar information. This is exclusively information that does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person. This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the contents of the websites requested by you and is mandatory when using the internet. Anonymous information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us in order to optimize our internet presence and the technology behind it.
Cookies cannot be used to start programs or transfer viruses to a computer. We can use the information contained in cookies to make navigation easier for you and to enable our webpages to be displayed correctly.
Under no circumstances will the data collected by us be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.
Registering on our website
When registering to use our personalized services, some personal data is collected, such as your name, address, contact and communication data (e.g. your telephone number and e-mail address). If you are registered with us, you can access content and services that we only offer to registered users. Registered users also have the option of changing or deleting the data provided during registration at any time, if necessary. Of course, we will also provide you with information about the personal data we have stored about you at any time. We will also gladly correct or delete this data at your request, provided there are no legal obligations to retain it. To contact us in this regard, please use the contact details given at the end of this data protection declaration.
To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption procedures (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.
If you register to receive our newsletter, the data you provide will be used exclusively for this purpose. Subscribers may also be informed by e-mail about circumstances relevant to the service or registration (for example, changes to the newsletter offer or technical conditions).
For effective registration, we require a valid e-mail address. In order to verify that a registration has actually been requested by the owner of an e-mail address, we use the “double-opt-in” procedure. For this purpose, we log the ordering of the newsletter, the sending of a confirmation e-mail and the receipt of the response requested. No further data is collected. The data will be used exclusively for sending the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.
You can revoke your consent to the storage of your personal data and its use for distributing the newsletter at any time. You will find a link for this purpose in every newsletter. You can also unsubscribe at any time directly on this website or inform us of your wish to unsubscribe via the contact option at the end of this data protection information.
If you contact us by e-mail or contact form, the information you provide will be stored for the purposes of processing your inquiry and for possible follow-up questions.
Deletion or blocking of data
We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as required by the various storage periods provided for by law. After the purpose has ceased to apply or these periods have expired, the corresponding data is routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.
Use of MATOMO
The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website is stored on a server in Germany.
The IP address is anonymized immediately after processing and before it is saved. You have the option of preventing the installation of cookies by changing your browser settings. Please note that if these settings are changed, not all functions of this website may be available.
You can decide whether a unique web analysis cookie may be stored in your browser to enable the website operator to collect and analyze various statistical data.
Embedded YouTube videos
We embed YouTube videos on some of our websites. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection is established to YouTube servers. This tells YouTube which pages you have visited. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube can assign your surfing behavior to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.
If you have disabled cookies for the Google Ad program, no cookies will be used when watching YouTube videos. However, YouTube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in your browser.
Your rights to information, correction, blocking, deletion and objection
You have the right to receive information about your personal data stored with us at any time. You also have a right to the correction, blocking or, apart from the prescribed data storage for business purposes, deletion of your personal data. Please contact our data protection officer for this purpose. You will find the details at the bottom of the page.
In order to allow us to block data at any time, this data must be kept in a blocking file for control purposes. You can also request that the data be deleted, provided there is no legal obligation to archive it. If such an obligation exists, we will block your data upon request.
You can make changes or withdraw your consent by notifying us accordingly with effect for the future.
We reserve the right to amend this data protection declaration from time to time so that it always meets current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services. The new data protection declaration then applies to your next visit.
