Privacy policy

We are delighted that you are visiting our website. We attach great importance to protecting your privacy. We take the protection of your personal data very seriously and abide strictly by the regulations of the data protection laws. Personal information is collected on this website only to the extent that is technically necessary. Below we provide information about the type, scope and purposes of the collection, processing and use of your personal data as this relates to the use of our website.

Personal information
Personal information in the meaning of the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz: BDSG) refers to individual items of information about the personal or material status of a certain or identifiable natural person (subject), for example your full legal name, postal address, telephone number and date of birth.

Data collection and processing
When you access our website we save temporarily some information including general technical information such as the software and hardware you are using, the IP address of the computer sending the request, the internet page from which you arrived on our website, the pages accessed, and the date, time and duration of your visit. We statistically evaluate this information in anonymised form, and it is used solely to improve the attractiveness, contents and functionalities of our website.

Additional items of personal information, e.g. email address, name and postal address are collected only if you provide them voluntarily, for instance when requesting information via our contact form. The sending of such information by you is done explicitly voluntarily and with your consent. We use the personal data submitted in this manner exclusively for the purpose for which you have transmitted them to us, e.g. for the purpose of correspondence in connection with your inquiry or to fulfil contract agreements. The data are not used for any other purpose without your explicit consent. You may of course withdraw your consent at any time with future effect. Please use our contact form for this purpose.

Forwarding data to third parties
We do not forward your data to third parties unless we are legally obliged to do so. Wherever external service providers have contact with your personal data, we have legal, technical and organisational measures and regular controls ensuring that these providers comply with the data protection regulations.
