Collection of general information when visiting our website

When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected by means of a cookie. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and the like. This is exclusively information that does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person. This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the content of web pages requested by you and is mandatory when using the Internet. In particular, it is processed for the following purposes: Securing a smooth connection setup of the website, ensuring a smooth use of our website, evaluating system security and stability as well as for other administrative purposes. The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest from the aforementioned purposes for data collection. We do not use your data to draw conclusions about your person. Recipients of the data are only the responsible body and, if applicable, order processors. Anonymous information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us, if necessary, in order to optimize our Internet presence and the technology behind it.

Cookie Consent Manager

This site uses the Klaro Cookie Consent Manager. A free open source tool to manage cookie consents in a privacy compliant way. The project initiator of this technology is KIProtect GmbH, Bismarckstr. 10-12, 10625 Berlin, Germany. Only when you consent to its use in the 'opt-in'-procedure, a cookie is stored in your browser, in which the consents you have given or the revocation of these consents are stored. This data is not passed on to third parties. The collected data will be stored until you delete the cookie or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies. Mandatory legal retention periods remain unaffected. Details on the data processing of Klaro!Cookie can be found at https://heyklaro.com/

SSL Encryption

To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS

Contact form

If you contact us by e-mail or contact form regarding questions of any kind, you give us your voluntary consent for the purpose of contact. For this purpose, it is necessary to provide a valid e-mail address. This serves the assignment of the request and the subsequent response to the same. The provision of further data is optional. The information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing the request and for possible follow-up questions. After completion of your inquiry, personal data will be automatically deleted.
