We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We therefore treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this privacy statement. It is generally possible to use our website without providing any personal data.
Where personal data (e.g. name, address, telephone number or email addresses) is collected on our pages, this is always done on a voluntary basis. Such data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent. We would advise you that data transmission over the internet can be compromised by security flaws. Complete protection of data from access by third parties is therefore not possible.
Data collection when you visit our website
When you use our website for informational purposes only, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we only collect data that your browser transmits to our server (so-called “server log files”). When you access our website, we collect the following data which is technically necessary for us to display the website to you:
- visited website

Processing is carried out in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f of the GDPR based on our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website. The data will not be passed on or used in any other way. However, we reserve the right to subsequently check the server log files if there are firm indications of illegal use.
Some of our internet pages use so-called cookies. These do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain any viruses. They serve to make our offering more effective, safer and more user-friendly. Cookies are text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies” and are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Others remain stored on your device until you delete them. This enables us to recognise your browser the next time you visit. You can set your browser to inform you about cookie settings, to exclude the acceptance of cookies in certain cases or in general, and to activate the automatic deletion of cookies when you close the browser. However, if cookies are deactivated, the functionality of the website may be restricted.
