You can delete cookies from your device yourself at any time. Deleting or deactivating cookies may limit the functionality of our website.
If you have given your consent, Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (‘Google’) is also used on this website. The information generated by cookies regarding your use of this website is, in general, transferred to and stored on a server in the US owned by Google. Due to the activation of IP anonymization on this website, however, your IP address will first be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or other states which are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a server in the US owned by Google and shortened there. Google will use this information, on behalf of the website operator, to analyze your use of the website, to prepare reports on website activities and to provide further services related to website and internet use to the website operator. The IP address transferred from your browser by Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google. You can prevent the storage of cookies through a corresponding setting of your browser software; please note, however, that then you might not be able to use all functions of this website in full.
Please note that Google Analytics is configured on this website in a way to ensure anonymous collection of IP addresses (IP masking). Your IP address is recorded but will be pseudonymized immediately. This allows for broad localization only.
Servor log files
The website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us in “server log files”. These are:
Browser type and browser version
Operating system used
Host name of the accessing computer
Time of the server request
These data will not be combined with data from other sources.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract.
Should you send us questions via the contact form, we will collect the data entered on the form, including the contact details you provide, to answer your question and any follow-up questions. We do not share this information without your permission.
We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1)(a) GDPR. You may revoke your consent at any time. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.
We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer pertains (e.g. after fulfilling your request). Any mandatory statutory provisions, especially those regarding mandatory data retention periods, remain unaffected by this provision.
The General Data Protection Regulation provides you with rights of access, rectification, erasure, restriction, data portability, withdrawal and objection. If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or if your rights under data protection law have been violated in any other way you can lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority. However, you may also contact us at any time using the contact form which can be found in our website’s ‘Contact’ section.
