We take privacy seriously
The protection of your privacy when processing personal data is an important concern for us. When you visit our website, our web servers store the IP address of your internet service provider, the website from which you visit us, the web pages you visit on our site and the date and duration of your visit as standard. This information is essential for the technical transmission of the web pages and secure server operation. A personalised evaluation of this data does not take place.
If you send us data via contact form, this data is stored on our servers in the course of data backup. Your data will only be used by us to process your request. Your data will be treated strictly confidential. Your data will not be passed on to third parties.
Personal data are data about your person. This includes your name, your address and your email address. You do not have to disclose any personal data to visit our website. In some cases, we need your name and address and other information in order to provide you with the requested service.
The same applies if we supply you with information material on request or if we answer your inquiries. In these cases we will always point this out to you. Furthermore, we only store the data that you have automatically or voluntarily provided us with.
If you use one of our services, we generally only collect the data that is necessary to offer you our service. It is possible that we may ask you for further information, but this is voluntary. Whenever we process personal data, we do so in order to offer you our service or to pursue our commercial goals.
Automatically stored data
Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- Date and time of the request
- Name of the requested file
- Page from which the file was requested
- Access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
- Web browser and operating system used
- complete IP address of the requesting computer
- data volume transferred
This data is not merged with other data sources. Processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 letter f DSGVO on the basis of our justified interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website. For reasons of technical security, in particular to ward off attempts to attack our web server, this data is stored by us for a short period. It is not possible for us to draw conclusions about individual persons on the basis of this data. After seven days at the latest, the data is anonymised by shortening the IP address at domain level, so that it is no longer possible to establish a link to the individual user. In anonymised form, the data is also processed for statistical purposes; it is not compared with other data sets or passed on to third parties, even in part. Only in the context of our server statistics, which we publish every two years in our activity report, is a presentation of the number of page views.
We have taken technical and administrative security measures to protect your personal data against loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorized access. All our employees as well as service providers working for us are bound to the valid data protection laws.
Rights of data subjects
You have the right to information, correction, deletion or restriction of the processing of your stored data, a right to object to the processing as well as a right to data transferability and to complain in accordance with the requirements of data protection law at any time.
Right to information
You can demand information from us as to whether and to what extent we process your data.
Right of rectification
If we process your data which are incomplete or incorrect, you can demand that we correct or complete them at any time.
Right to deletion
You can demand the deletion of your data from us if we process them unlawfully or if the processing interferes disproportionately with your legitimate protection interests. Please note that there may be reasons that prevent immediate deletion, e.g. in the case of legally regulated storage obligations. Irrespective of the exercise of your right to deletion, we will delete your data immediately and completely, provided that there is no legal obligation to retain them.
Right to restrict processing
You can demand that we restrict the processing of your data if
- you dispute the accuracy of the data, for a period of time that allows us to verify the accuracy of the data.
- the processing of the data is unlawful, but you refuse to allow it to be deleted and instead demand a restriction on the use of the data,
- we no longer need the data for the intended purpose, but you still need the data to assert or defend legal claims, or
- you have lodged an objection to the processing of the data.
Right to data transferability
You can demand that we provide you with your data that you have provided us with in a structured, common and machine-readable format and that you can transfer this data to another person responsible without hindrance from us, provided that
we process this data on the basis of a revocable consent granted by you or for the fulfilment of a contract between us, and such processing is carried out by means of automated procedures. If technically feasible, you can request us to transfer your data directly to another responsible party.
Right of objection
If we process your data out of a legitimate interest, you may object to this data processing at any time; this would also apply to profiling based on these provisions. We will then no longer process your data unless we can prove compelling reasons for processing worthy of protection which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. You may object to the processing of your data for the purpose of direct marketing at any time without giving reasons.
Right of appeal
If you are of the opinion that we are processing your data in violation of German or European data protection law, we ask you to contact us in order to clarify any questions. Of course, you also have the right to contact the supervisory authority responsible for you, the respective state office for data protection supervision. If you wish to assert any of the above rights against us, please contact our data protection officer. In case of doubt, we may request additional information to confirm your identity.
