We take the protection of your personal data seriously

Thank you for visiting our website and thank you for your interest in our company. We highly value the trust you have placed in us. We understand your confidence as our obligation to handle your data with the utmost care, and we do everything possible to protect it against misuse.

In order to make you feel safe while visiting our website, we have made it our priority to protect your privacy when processing your personal data.

In this Privacy Statement, we would like to explain when and how we collect your personal data and for what purposes and on what legal basis this is done (General Data Protection Regulation).

When you send us personal data via a contact form, your data will be stored on our servers in the course of data backup. Your personal data will be used exclusively for the processing of your request. It will not be passed on or disclosed to third parties.

Personal Data

Personal Data is any information which is related to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes your name, postal address and e-mail address. You can, of course, visit our website without telling us who you are. As you move around our site, our web servers collect the following information by default: the IP address of your internet service provider, the website from which you visit us, the operating system with which you are accessing our site, the URL you are accessing, and the date and duration of your visit. This information is imperative in order to ensure the correct technical transmission of our web pages and the safe operation of our servers. A personalised data analysis does not take place.

These anonymised data are being stored – separately from personal data – on secure systems and cannot be assigned to individual persons. This means that your personal data remains protected at all times.

We only collect the data necessary to provide our services to you. We may ask you for more information, which is voluntary in nature. Whenever we process personal data, we do so to provide you with the service you request from us.

The same applies if you send us any inquiries, such as a request for information material, which requires our reply. In any case, we will always point out to you when we are collecting data, and we will only store data with which you have automatically or voluntarily provided us.

We may ask you for more information in order to provide our services to you. Your transmission of such data is entirely voluntary in nature. In general, we process the personal data of our users for the sole purpose of ensuring the supply of a fully functioning website, contents and services. The processing of personal data customarily takes place only after the user has given his/her consent – except for such cases, in which it is impossible to obtain a user’s prior permission for factual reasons, and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.

Data Deletion and Retention Period

Personal data is deleted or blocked as soon as it is no longer needed to carry out the purpose for which it was stored. Storage can also occur if provided for by European or national legislators in EU regulations, acts or other legislation to which the responsible authority is subject. Blocking or deletion of data also occurs if a storage period prescribed by one of the aforementioned norms expires, unless a necessity exists in relation to the further storage of the data for the arrangement of a contract or the fulfilment of a contract.

Automatically Stored Non-Personal Data

When you visit our web pages, we save certain information for administrative and technical reasons. This information includes: type and version of the web browser used, date and time of access, and IP address.
These data are rendered anonymous and are only used for statistical purposes, respectively for improving our online services.
They are being stored – separately from personal data – on secure systems and cannot be assigned to individual persons. This means that your personal data remains protected at all times.

Cookies

When using our website, information may be stored on your computer in the form of cookies. Cookies are small text files transferred from an internet server to your browser and stored on your computer. Only the IP address is stored, no personal data. The information stored in these cookies makes it possible to recognise your browser when you next visit the site and it makes the access and use of our website easier and more comfortable for you.

Of course, you can visit our website without accepting cookies. If you do not want your browser to be recognised the next time you visit our site, you can decline the use of cookies by changing the setting of your browser accordingly. In most browsers, you can find instructions on how to manage cookies in the “settings” menu. Please be aware, however, that disabling cookies may limit the functionality of our website.

Google Analytics

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google, Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA (“Google”). Google Analytics employs cookies that are stored on your computer in order to facilitate an analysis of your use of the site.

The information generated by these cookies, such as time, place and frequency of your visits to our site, including your IP address, is transmitted to Google’s location in the US and stored there.

In using Google Analytics, our website employs the extension „_gat._anonymizeIp“. In doing so, Google abbreviates and thereby anonymises your IP address before transferring it from EU/EEA member states. Google uses this information to analyse your use of our site, to compile reports for us on internet activity and to provide other services relating to our website.
Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage.
Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law or where such third parties process this data on Google’s behalf. Google states that it will never associate your IP address with other data held by Google. You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting the settings on your browser software accordingly as noted elsewhere in this Privacy Policy. You should be aware, however, that by doing so you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of our website.
Google Analytics also offers a deactivation add-on for most current browsers that provides you with more control over what data Google can collect on websites you access. The add-on tells the JavaScript (ga.js) used by Google Analytics not to transmit any information about website visits to Google Analytics. However, the browser deactivation add-on offered by Google Analytics does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analysis services we may engage. You can find additional information on how to install the browser add-on referenced above at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

When you are accessing our site using a mobile device (smartphone or tablet), please click on the link above in order to refuse the use of Google Analytics. A so-called “opt-out cookie” will be placed on your device. Please note that if you delete cookies, you will have to click on the above link again.

Third-party providers, including Google, place advertisements on websites on the Internet. Third-party providers, including Google, use stored cookies to place advertisements based on previous visits of a user on this website. Under no circumstances will Google link your IP address to other data retrieved by Google. You can object to the collection and storage of your data at any time with future effect. You can deactivate the use of cookies by Google by accessing the appropriate page to  deactivate Google Advertising.

Alternatively, users can deactivate the use of cookies by third-party providers by accessing the deactivation page of the network advertising initiative. You can also prevent the data generated by the cookie relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) from being forwarded to and processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available via the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

We would like to point out, however, that doing so might prevent you from making full use of all the functions on this website. By using this website, you agree to the processing of the data concerning your person collected by Google in the aforementioned manner and for the aforementioned purpose. You can object to the collection and storage of data at any time with future effect. More information on Google’s data protection regulations can be found here.

Google Maps

Our website uses Google Maps to visually present geographical information, depict location maps and generate driving directions. Google Maps is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. By using Google Maps on this website, you agree to the collection, processing and use of the data regarding your person automatically collected by Google, one of its representatives or third-party providers. The terms of use for Google Maps can be found here. The Google Maps data protection regulations can be found here.

Google Fonts

In order to display our content in a browser-friendly and graphically appealing way, this website uses script libraries and font libraries provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, („Google Fonts“, https://www.google.com/webfonts/). The legal basis for the data processing within this application is the safeguarding of our justified interests in the analysis, optimisation, and safe and efficient operation of our website (see article 6 (1), page 1, lit. f of the GDPR).

Within the context of this application, the browser of the user who is visiting our website automatically contacts a Google server which is usually located in the United States. Subsequently, the Google Fonts are transmitted to the browser cache, a temporary storage location on your computer for files downloaded by your browser to display websites. If your browser does not support access to Google Fonts, the text on our website will be displayed in a standard font. When accessing the Google server, the following data are collected and stored: name of the browser used, browser version, website from which the request was made, user’s operating system, user’s screen resolution, user’s IP address, language settings of the browser or operating system in use.

The Google Fonts API is designed to limit the collection, storage, and use of end-user data to what is needed to serve fonts efficiently. Use of Google Fonts is unauthenticated. No cookies are sent by website visitors to the Google Fonts API. Requests to the Google Fonts API are made to resource-specific domains, such as fonts.googleapis.com or fonts.gstatic.com, so that your requests for fonts are separate from and do not contain any credentials you send to google.com while using other Google services that are authenticated, such as Gmail.

You can change your default settings to prevent loading fonts from Google’s servers (e.g. by installing an add-on such as NoScript (www.noscript.net) or Ghostery  (https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/ghostery/ for the Firefox browser). Your advertising preferences can be adjusted here: https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated.

More information on the Google Fonts libraries can be found here: https://fonts.google.com/about or here https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq#Privacy.
