Privacy Policy


The protection of your privacy and your personal data is an important concern to which we pay special attention. We respect the confidentiality of your personal data and always act in accordance with the provisions of data protection law and this Privacy Policy.


Data provided by the user
As a rule the use of this site is possible without the declaration of personal data. If personal data (name, postal address or email address) are collected within our website, this is done, as far as possible, on a voluntary basis. We only use the personal details provided by you to carry out your wishes and requests.

For reasons of data security and for the purposes of optimizing user-friendliness and for site- and user mentric measurement, we also collect temporary non-personal data in connection with the use of our website. For example, the internet browser used, the operating system, the domain name of the website you last visited before accessing our website, the number of visits and the average time spent on our website, as well as the pages you accessed, are stored.

Who does it apply to
visitors and users of our website


Deletion of data and storage period
The collected data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the reason for storing it no longer applies. Longer storage periods may apply as required by European or national law. Data will also be deleted or blocked once a storage period established by the above mentioned standards comes to an end, unless the data must continue to be stored for the purpose of concluding or executing a contract.


SSL encryption
This site uses SSL 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 encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.


Contact
If personal data (name, postal address or email address) are collected within our website, this is done, as far as possible, on a voluntary basis. Should you send us questions via email or the contact form, we will collect the data entered on 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 would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (for example, when communicating via e-mail) may involve security gaps. A seamless protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.


Cookies
Our website use browser cookies. Cookies do not cause any harm on your computer. They are small files with configuration settings that help us to make our online services user-friendlier, more effective and more secure. Moreover, cookies serve to implement certain user functions.

Our website use “session cookies”, which are automatically deleted when the browser is closed. Occasionally, they also use “persistent cookies”, which remain on your device until they expire or are manually deleted. The latter enable us to recognize your browser at your next visit. For details on “third party cookies”, i.e. cookies of third-party providers, such as Google Inc., please refer to the privacy rules of such providers.

You can adjust your browser or the privacy settings of your mobile devices to be notified whenever a cookie is sent to your device so that you can decide whether or not to allow a cookie on a case-by-case basis. You can also disable the acceptance of cookies, in certain cases only or by default, and activate the automatic deletion of copies every time you close your browser. However, you should bear in mind that some functions of our online services may not be fully accessible if you deactivate cookies.

You can configure your browser to inform you about the use of cookies so that you can decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept or reject a cookie. Alternatively, your browser can be configured to automatically accept cookies under certain conditions or to always reject them, or to automatically delete cookies when closing your browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.


Web-Analyse/Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service. It is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

We have entered into an agreement with Google for the outsourcing of our data processing and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.

Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google Analytics cookies are stored based on Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior to optimize both its website and its advertising.

IP anonymization

We have activated the IP anonymization feature on this website. Your IP address will be shortened by Google within the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. 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 regarding website activity and Internet usage for the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google.


Google Web Fonts
For uniform representation of fonts, this page uses web fonts provided by Google. When you open a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.

For this purpose your browser has to establish a direct connection to Google servers. Google thus becomes aware that our web page was accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web fonts is done in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of our website. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.

If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer.

Further information about handling user data, can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google's privacy policy at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy.


Google Maps
This site uses the Google Maps map service via an API. It is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. To use Google Maps, it is necessary to save your IP address. This information is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transfer. The use of Google Maps is in the interest of making our website appealing and to facilitate the location of places specified by us on the website. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. Further information about handling user data, can be found in the data protection declaration of Google at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/
