The website operator takes your data protection very seriously and treats your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory provisions. Since new technologies and the constant further development of this website may lead to changes in this data protection declaration, we recommend that you read the data protection declaration again at regular intervals.
Definitions of the terms used (e.g. “personal data” or “processing”) can be found in Art. 4 DSGVO.
We, the website operator or site operator, collect data on access to the website on the basis of our legitimate interest (see § 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO) and store these data as “server log files” on the website server. The following data is logged in this way:
– Visited website

– Amount of data sent in bytes
– Source/reference from which you came to the site
– used browser
– Operating systems used

The server log files are stored for a maximum of 7 days and then deleted. The data is stored for security reasons, e.g. to clarify cases of abuse. If data must be deleted for reasons of evidence, they are excluded from deletion until the incident has been finally clarified.

Collection and processing of personal data
The operator of the website collects, uses and passes on your personal data only if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of data.
Personal data is all information that is used to determine your identity and that can be traced back to you – for example your name, your e-mail address and your telephone number.
You can also visit this website without providing personal data. However, in order to improve our online services, we store your access data to this website (without personal reference). These access data include, for example, the file you requested or the name of your Internet provider. The anonymization of the data does not allow any conclusions about you personally.
-Which one? – We process personal data such as your first and last name, your IP address, your company name, your e-mail address, your place of residence, your postal code and information on contents from the contact form.
– How – We process personal data only with the express consent of the users concerned and in compliance with the applicable data protection regulations.
– Why – We process personal data on the basis of our legitimate interest in fulfilling requests and optimizing our online services.
Handling of contact data
If you contact us as the operator of the website via the contact options offered, your data will be stored so that it can be used to process and answer your inquiry. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.
Dealing with comments and contributions
If you leave a contribution or comment on this website, your IP address will be saved. This is done on the basis of our legitimate interests as defined in Art. 6 Paragraph 6 1 lit. f. DSGVO and serves the security of us as operator of the website: Because if your comment violates applicable law, we may be prosecuted for this, which is why we have an interest in the identity of the comment or contribution author.
Based on our legitimate interests, this website uses the following data for the optimization and analysis of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 paragraph 6 1 lit. f DSGVO uses the “Google Analytics” service, which is provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). The service (Google Analytics) uses “cookies” – text files that are stored on your end device. The information collected by the cookies is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
Google LLC complies with European data protection regulations and is certified according to the Privacy Shield Agreement: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active
IP anonymization is used on this website. The IP address of the users is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area as well as in the other contracting states of the agreement. Only in individual cases is the IP address initially transmitted in full to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Due to this shortening, the personal reference of your IP address is not necessary. The IP addresses of users transmitted by the browser are not merged with other data stored by Google.
Within the framework of the contract for the collection of order data, which we have concluded with Google Inc. as the operator of the website, Google Inc. uses the collected information to carry out an analysis of the website use and website activities and to provide services in connection with the use of the Internet.
The data collected by Google on our behalf is used to evaluate the use of our online services by individual users, e.g. to create reports on website activities to improve our online services.
