The owners of these web sites take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We will treat your personal data confidentially and according to the data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.
Our website can generally be used without providing any personal data. If personal data is collected on our websites (for instance name, address or e-mail address), this is done on a voluntary basis as far as possible. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your explicit extent.
We would like to draw your attention to the fact that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. during communication via e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
In some instances, the web sites make use of so-called cookies. Cookies don't do any harm to your computer and do not contain computer viruses. The purpose of these cookies is to make our offer more user-friendly, efficient and secure. Cookies are small text files, which are placed on your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies used by us are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain on your end device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser on your next visit.
You can set up your browser so that you are informed about the placing of cookies and to only allow cookies in individual cases, to accept cookies for specific cases, or to block cookies generally, and to activate the deletion of cookies when the browser is closed. When cookies are de-activated, the functionality of the website may be impaired.
The provider of the websites automatically collects and saves information in so-called server log files that are automatically transferred to us. These are:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system
- Referrer URL
- Host name of accessing computer
- Time of the server request
This data cannot be related to any specific person. This data is not merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively upon becoming aware of concrete indications of unlawful use.
When you send us requests via the contact form, your information in the contact form, including the contact data stated by you, is saved by us for the purpose of processing the request and for processing subsequent queries. We will not pass on this data without your consent.
For reasons of security and protection of the transmission of confidential contents, like for instance requests sent to us as website operator, we use SSL encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the address line of the browser changing from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
When SSL encryption is activated, data transmitted to us by you cannot be viewed by third parties.
