We take your right to privacy seriously and want you to feel comfortable using our web site. We therefore process your data exclusively on the basis of the General Data Protection Regulation (“DSGVO”).
To ensure a high level of transparency and security, our privacy statement as set forth below will inform you about the nature, scope and purpose of any collection, use and processing of personal data recorded by us.
Please note that data transmitted via the internet (e. g. via email communication) may be subject to security breaches. Complete protection of your data from third-party access is not possible.
- Collection of Data.
Your data is collected when you provide it to us. This could, for example, be data you enter in a contact form. Other data are collected automatically by the IT systems of our provider when you visit our website. These data are primarily of technical nature such as the browser and operating system you are using or the time when you accessed the page. These data are collected automatically as soon as you enter our website. Part of this data is collected to ensure the proper functioning of the website. Other data can be used to analyze how visitors use the site.
- Analytics and third-party tools
b) Server Log Files
The website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us in „server log files“. These are:
– browser type and browser version
– operating system used
– referrer URL
– host name of the accessing computer
– time of the server request
– IP address
These data will not be combined with data from other sources.
The Website Provider will use this data for the following purposes:
– establishing smooth connection to the website;
– ensuring custom use of the Website;
– evaluating system safety and stability;
– for further administrative purposes.
This processing of data is based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, which allows the processing of data to fulfil a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract. Our legitimate interest results from the data processing purposes listed above. We have no intention whatsoever to use the data collected to uncover the identity of a Person.
c) Contact Form
If you send us enquiries using the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact data you provided there, will be stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent. We will process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1) (a) DSGVO. You can revoke this consent at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal e-mail. The legality of the data processing processes carried out up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation. The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete, your consent for storage revoked or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
