Recording of general information

When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically recorded. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider and other similar information. This is exclusively information that does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your identity. This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the contents of web pages requested by you and is compulsory when using the internet. Anonymous information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us in order to optimise our website and the technology behind it.

 

Cookies

Like many other websites, we also use so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. They automatically provide us with certain data such as your IP address, the browser you are using, your computer's operating system as well as information regarding your internet connection.

Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to a computer. The information contained in cookies enables us to facilitate your navigation and to display our web pages correctly.

Under no circumstances will the data we collect be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.

Of course, you can also view our website without cookies. Web browsers are regularly configured to accept cookies. You can deactivate the use of cookies at any time via your browser settings. Please use your web browser's help functions to find out how to change these settings. Please note that some features of our website may not work if you have disabled the use of cookies.

 

SSL encryption

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

 

Newsletter

When registering to receive our newsletter, the data you provide will be used exclusively for this purpose. Subscribers may also be informed by e-mail about circumstances relevant to the service or registration (for example, changes to the newsletter subscription or technical circumstances).

For an effective registration, we require a valid e-mail address. In order to verify that a registration has actually been requested by the owner of an e-mail address, we use the "double-opt-in" procedure. For this purpose, we log the newsletter subscription request, the sending of a confirmation e-mail and the receipt of the response requested herewith. No additional data is recorded. The data is used exclusively for sending the newsletter and is not passed on to third parties.

You can revoke your consent to the storage of your personal data and its use for newsletter dispatch at any time. There is a corresponding link in each newsletter. You can also unsubscribe at any time directly on this website or inform us of your wish to do so using the contact option provided at the end of this privacy policy.

 

Contact form

If you contact us by e-mail or contact form, the information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and for possible follow-up questions.

 

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 stipulated by the various storage periods provided for by law. After the respective purpose has ceased to exist or these periods have expired, the corresponding data is routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.

 

Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (hereinafter: Google). Google Analytics uses so-called Cookies, i.e. text files which are stored on your computer and enable analysis of the way you use the website. The information generated by the Cookie concerning your use of this website is normally transferred to a Google server in the USA and saved there. Due to activation of the IP anonymisation on these websites, your IP address will however first be abbreviated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will a complete IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity on behalf of the operator of this website, and providing other services relating to website and internet usage to 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.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by using an appropriate setting in your browser software; however, we would like to point out that if you do so, you might not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. Furthermore, you can prevent the compilation and sending of data generated by the cookie, its use of website-related data (incl. your IP address) to Google and the processing of data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin, which is available via the following link: Browser Add-on for deactivating Google Analytics.

In addition or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can prevent tracking by Google Analytics on our pages by clicking this link. This will install an opt-out cookie on your device. This will prevent the collection by Google Analytics for this website and for this browser in the future, as long as the cookie remains installed in your browser.

 

Use of Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps API to visually display geographical information. When using Google Maps, Google also collects, processes and uses data about visitors' use of the map functions. You can find more detailed information about the data processing by Google in Google's Privacy Policy. There, you can also change your personal privacy settings in the Privacy Centre.

You can find detailed instructions on managing your own data in connection with Google products here.

 

Embedded YouTube videos

We embed YouTube videos on some of our websites. The corresponding plugins are operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a site with the YouTube plugin, a connection is made to the YouTube servers. This tells Youtube which pages you are visiting. If you are logged into your Youtube account, Youtube can assign your surfing behaviour to you personally. You can prevent this by first logging out of your YouTube account.

If a Youtube video is started, the provider uses cookies that collect information about user behaviour.

If you have deactivated the saving of cookies for the Google Ad programme, you will not have to expect any such cookies when watching Youtube videos. However, Youtube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you wish to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in your browser.

Further information on data protection at "Youtube" can be found in the provider's privacy policy at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/

 

Google Ads

Our website uses Google conversion tracking. If you have reached our website via an ad placed by Google, Google Ads will set a cookie on your computer. The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks an ad placed by Google. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and is not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognise that the user clicked the ad and was redirected to that page. Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked across Ads customers' websites. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Ads customers who have opted in to conversion tracking. Customers learn the total number of users who clicked their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, you will not receive any information with which users can be personally identified.

If you do not wish to participate in the tracking, you can reject the setting of a cookie required for this – for example, by means of a browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies or by configuring your browser in such a way that cookies from the domain "googleleadservices.com" are blocked.

Please note that you may not delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not want any measurement data to be recorded. If you have deleted all your cookies in the browser, you must set the respective opt-out cookie again.

 

Your rights to information, correction, blocking, deletion and objection

You have the right at any time to receive information about your personal data saved by us. You also have the right to have your personal data corrected, blocked or, apart from the mandatory data storage for business processing, deleted. Please contact our data protection officer for this purpose. You will find the contact details at the bottom of this page.

To ensure that a blocking of data can be taken into account at any time, this data must be kept in a blocking file for monitoring purposes. You can also request the deletion of data, unless there is a legal archiving obligation. If such an obligation exists, we will block your data upon request.

You can make changes or revoke consent by notifying us accordingly with effect for the future.

 

Change of our data protection provisions

We reserve the right to amend this privacy policy from time to time so that it always complies with the current legal requirements or in order to implement changes to our services in the privacy policy, e.g. when introducing new services. The new privacy policy will then apply to your next visit.
