Use of our website is normally possible without providing any personal data. Insofar as personal data is collected on our web pages (for example, name, address or email address), this will always be provided on a voluntary basis wherever possible. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.
Please note that the transmission of data via the internet (e.g. communication by email) may be subject to security vulnerabilities. It is not possible to protect data completely against access by third parties.
These web pages sometimes use so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies are used to make our service more user friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer and stored by your browser.
The majority of cookies we use are so-called session cookies. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser the next time you visit.
You can configure your browser so that you are informed when cookies are set and only allow cookies on an individual basis, block cookies entirely or in specific cases, and delete cookies automatically when you close your browser. Deactivating cookies may restrict the functionality of this website.
The provider of the web pages automatically collects and stores information that your browser transmits to us in so-called server log files. This information includes:
- the browser type and version
- the operating system
- the referrer URL
- the host name of the accessing computer
- the time of the server request
This data cannot be attributed to any specific individual. This data is not merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively if we become aware of any concrete indications of unlawful use.
This website uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential information, such as enquiries you send to us as the website operator. You can identify an encrypted connection from the browser’s address bar, where the ‘http://’ changes to ‘https://’, and from the lock symbol in your browser line.
When the SSL encryption is enabled, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Right of access, deletion, restriction
You have a right of free access to information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients, and the purpose for which it is being processed, as well as a right to rectify, restrict or delete this data. If you have any further questions on the issue of personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address given in our legal notice.
Objection to advertising emails
We hereby prohibit the use of our contact details, published in accordance with our obligation to supply a legal notice, for the purpose of sending us advertising material that we have not expressly requested. The operators of these web pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event that unsolicited advertising information is sent to them, for example as spam emails.
