When using the Internet, users always leave data. It is very important for us to protect this data. Here, we would like to inform you which data we use. For technical reasons some of the data is temporarily stored in a protocol file. When visiting our website the following information is stored: pages viewed, data volume transferred and time of visit. Furthermore information about the browser used is stored – this may also contain information about the operating system and the terminal used. However, the IP address of the user is immediately anonymized so that the data cannot be traced back to a certain person. This stored anonymized data is evaluated statistically to optimize our website and the technology behind. This personal data is not forwarded to a third party without your express consent.
Processing of personal data
Personal data is information used to identify a person, i.e. information tracing back to a person. This includes the name, email address or telephone number. However, information about personal preferences, hobbies, memberships or websites visited may also be part of this data. Personal data is only collected, processed and forwarded if this is in compliance with legal provisions or if the user agrees to the data recording.
If you contact us by the contact form or email, the data provided by you is stored to process your request and potential questions. For technical reasons the IP address of the user is stored when using the contact form to avoid a multiple data transmission. However, the IP address is not used for any other reason and will be deleted after 30 days.
Furthermore, our website also uses plugins of third parties. Therefore data may also be stored by these third parties when using the plugins. A protection of your data against an access of third-party providers is possible with an appropriate configuration of your browser.
