Purposes of data processing by the responsible body and third parties

We process your personal data only for the purposes stated in this Privacy Policy. Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties for purposes other than those mentioned. We will only pass on your personal data to third parties if:

  • you have given your express consent;
  • processing is necessary to execute a contract with you;
  • processing is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation;
  • processing is necessary to protect legitimate interests and there is no reason to believe that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in not disclosing your data.

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 provided for in the various storage periods required by law. After the respective purpose or expiry of these periods, the corresponding data will be blocked or deleted as a matter of routine and in accordance with statutory regulations.

Collection of general information when visiting our website

When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected by means of a cookie. This information (server log files) includes the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and similar information. This is exclusively information which cannot be traced back to your person.

This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the content you have requested from websites and is mandatory when using the Internet. They are processed in particular for the following purposes:

  • ensuring a trouble-free connection of the website;
  • ensuring smooth use of our website;
  • evaluation of system security and stability; and
  • for other administrative purposes.

Your personal data is processed based on our legitimate interest from the aforementioned purposes for data collection. We do not use your data to draw conclusions about you personally. The recipients of the data are only the responsible body and, if applicable, the processor.

Anonymous information of this kind may be statistically evaluated by us in order to optimise our website and the technology behind it.

SSL encoding

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

Contact form

If you contact us by email or contact form regarding any questions, please give us your voluntary consent for the purpose of contacting us. A valid email address is required for this purpose. This is used to classify the request and then reply to it. Providing further data is optional. The information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing your inquiry and for possible follow-up queries. After your request has been processed, your personal data will be automatically deleted.

Social media plug-ins

Social media plug-ins from the providers listed below are used on our websites. You can recognise the plug-ins by the fact that they are marked with the corresponding logo.

These plug-ins may be used to send information, which may include personal data, to the service provider and may be used by them. We prevent the unconscious and unwanted collection and transmission of data to the service provider through a 2-click solution. To activate a desired social plug-in, it must first be activated by clicking on the corresponding button. Activating the plug-in will trigger the collection of information and its transmission to the service provider. We do not collect any personal data ourselves with the social media plug-ins or their use.

We have no influence on which data an activated plug-in collects and how it is used by the provider. At present, it must be assumed that a direct connection to the provider’s services will be expanded and that at least the IP address and device-related information will be recorded and used. It is also possible that the service providers may try to save cookies on the computer used. Please refer to the Privacy Policy of the respective service provider to find out which specific data is collected and how it is used. Note: If you are logged in to Facebook at the same time, Facebook can identify you as a visitor to a specific page.

We have integrated the social media buttons of the following companies on our website: facebook

Changes to our Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to adapt this Privacy Policy so that it always complies with current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the Privacy Policy, e.g. when introducing new services. The new Privacy Policy will then apply for your next visit.
