Scope of data collection and processing of personal data
The use of our website is usually possible without providing personal information. If personal data (e.g., name, address, or email addresses) is collected on our pages, this is always done on a voluntary basis as far as possible. This data will not be disclosed to third parties without your explicit consent. We would like to point out that data transmission over the internet (e.g., communication by email) can have security vulnerabilities. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible. When you access our website, information is automatically sent to the server of our website by the browser on your device. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. The following information is recorded without your intervention and stored until it is automatically deleted:
IP address of the requesting computer
Date and time of access
Name and URL of the retrieved file
Website from which access is made (referrer URL)
Browser used and, if applicable, the operating system of your computer, as well as the name of your access provider
We process the aforementioned data for the following purposes:
Ensuring a smooth connection setup of the website
Ensuring convenient use of our website
Evaluating system security and stability
Other administrative purposes
This data cannot be assigned to specific individuals. This data is not merged with other data sources.
We take all necessary technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data from loss and misuse.
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your information from the inquiry form, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We will not share this data without your consent. The processing of the data entered into the contact form is therefore based exclusively on your consent. You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal notification by email to us is sufficient for this purpose. The legality of data processing operations carried out before the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation. The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage, or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g., after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory statutory provisions – especially retention periods – remain unaffected.
Integration of third-party services and content
It may happen that third-party content, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds, or graphics from other websites, is integrated within this online offering. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers") are aware of the IP address of the users. Without the IP address, they would not be able to send the content to the respective user's browser. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content. We make every effort to use only content whose respective providers use the IP address solely for the purpose of delivering the content. However, we have no influence on whether third-party providers store the IP address, e.g., for statistical purposes. As far as we are aware of this, we will inform users accordingly.
Google Web Fonts
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies," which are text files stored on users' computers that enable an analysis of their website usage. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website by users is usually transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the United States. However, if IP anonymization is enabled on this website, Google will truncate the IP address of users within member states of the European Union or other countries that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before sending it to the US. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and truncated there. IP anonymization is active on this website. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate the use of the website by users, compile reports on website activity, and provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.
The IP address transmitted by the user's browser as part of Google Analytics is not associated with any other data held by Google. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting their browser software settings. However, this website informs users that if they do so, they may not be able to fully utilize all the functions of this website. Furthermore, users can prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to their use of the website (including their IP address) by Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
Alternatively, users can click on this link to prevent future data collection by Google Analytics on this website. An opt-out cookie will be stored on their device. If users delete their cookies, they will need to click the link again.
We use "Google reCAPTCHA" ("reCAPTCHA") on our websites. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). reCAPTCHA is used to check whether data entered on our websites (e.g., in a contact form) is done by a human or an automated program. For this purpose, reCAPTCHA analyzes the behavior of the website visitor based on various characteristics. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the website visitor enters the website. reCAPTCHA evaluates various information during the analysis (e.g., IP address, duration of the website visitor's stay on the website, or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis is transmitted to Google.
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the change in the address line of your browser from "http://" to "https://" and the lock symbol in your browser line. When SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Right to Information, Deletion, Blocking
You have the right to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients, and the purpose of data processing, as well as a right to correction, blocking, or deletion of these data. For this purpose, as well as for further questions regarding personal data, you can contact us at any time using the address provided in the imprint.
