1. General information

Cookies

Like many other websites, we also use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a web page server to your hard disk. This automatically provides us with certain data, including your IP address, browser used, operating system from your computer and your connection to the Internet.

Cookies cannot be used to launch programmes or transfer viruses to your computer. Based on the information contained in cookies, we can help you navigate our website more easily and view it correctly.

Under no circumstances will the data we collect be passed on to third parties or linked with your personal information without your consent.

Of course, you can also browse our website without cookies. Internet browsers are usually set to accept cookies by default. You can deactivate the use of cookies at any time in your browser settings. Please use your Internet browser help functions to find out how to make the necessary changes. Please note that some features of our website may not work correctly if you disable the use of cookies.


Registration on our website

When registering to use our personalised services, some personal data will be collected, such as your name, address, contact and communication information including your telephone number and e-mail address. If you are registered with us, you can access contents and services that we only offer to registered users. Registered users also have the option of changing or erasing the information provided during registration at any time. We will also inform you about the personal data we hold about you at any time. We are happy to rectify or erase these data at your request unless there are statutory retention obligations preventing us from doing so. To contact us in this context, please use the contact details provided at the end of this Privacy Policy.


SSL encryption

To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption techniques (such as SSL) over HTTPS.

 

Comments function

When leaving comments on the blog, the comment creation time and the user name previously chosen by the website visitor will also be saved together with the actual comment. This is for our safety as we may be prosecuted for any illegal content on our website, even if created by users.


Newsletter

When you sign up to receive our newsletter, the data you provide will be used exclusively for this purpose. Subscribers may also be notified by email about circumstances relevant to the service or registration (such as changes to the newsletter offer or technical conditions).

We need a valid e-mail address for a successful registration. In order to verify that the registration has actually been made by the owner of an e-mail address, we use the “double-opt-in” procedure. For this purpose, we log the order of the newsletter, the sending of a confirmation email and the receipt of the requested answer. No other data is collected. The data will be used exclusively to deliver our newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.

The consent to the storage of your personal data and their use for the newsletter can be revoked at any time. Each newsletter contains a link to this option. You can also unsubscribe directly on this website at any time or inform us of your request via the contact option indicated at the end of this Privacy Notice.


Contact form

If you contact us by e-mail or contact form, the information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing the request and possible follow-up questions.


Erasure or blocking of data

We adhere to the principles of data reduction and data economy. Therefore, we only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as required by the various statutory retention periods. After the respective purpose ceases to exist or the periods expire, the corresponding data are blocked or erased routinely and according to the legal regulations.


Use of Piwik (Matomo)

This website uses Piwik (Matomo), an open-source software for the statistical evaluation of visitor access. Piwik (Matomo) uses so-called “Cookies”, text files which are stored on your computer and which allow an analysis of your usage of the website.
The information about your usage of our website, as generated through cookies, is stored on a server in Germany.
The IP address is anonymised immediately after processing and prior to its storage. You have the option to prevent the installation of cookies by changing the settings of your browser. We would like to point out that you may no longer be able to use all the features of this website if you change the settings.

You are given the choice whether to allow a unique web analysis cookie to be stored in your browser that enables the website operator to collect and analyse various statistical data.

Use of Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps API to visually display geographic information. When using Google Maps, Google also collects, processes and uses data on how visitors use their map features. For more information on the data processing by Google, please refer to Google Privacy Notice. You can also change your personal privacy settings in the privacy centre.

Detailed instructions on how to manage your own data related to Google products  can be found here.
 

 

2. General and mandatory information

Your rights to information, rectification, blocking, erasure and objection

You have the right to receive information about your personal data stored by us at any time. Likewise, you have the right to rectification, blocking or, except for the mandatory data backup required for business purposes, erasure of your personal data. Please contact our data protection officer. The contact details can be found at the bottom of this text.

In order for data blocking to be possible at all times, these data must be stored in a block file for control purposes. You can also request the erasure of your data, as long as there is no statutory archiving obligation. If such an obligation exists, we may block your data on request.

You can make changes or revoke your consent by notifying us with effect for the future.
