B. Data processing

Personal data is any information relating to the data subject (natural person), who can be identified, directly or indirectly (e.g. name, email address, or IP address).

a) Web Site Visiting

You can visit our website without providing personal information. When you visit and use our website, we may process the following data:

  • User data (e.g. websites visited, interest in content, access times, geotags)
  • Meta and communication data (e.g. device identifiers, IP addresses).
  • An anonymous cookie ID which does not make it possible to infer your IP address

b) Contacting us

If you contact us, we will process your personal data that you actively and voluntarily provide yourself to us. Your data (name and contact details – if you have provided them) and your communication will be processed exclusively for the purpose of responding to your inquiry and/or request of information. We process this data on the basis of Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR or Art. 6(1)(f) in order to respond to your inquiry.

c) Cookies

Our website uses "cookies" to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure.

A "cookie" is a small text file that we transfer via our web server to the browser's cookie file on your computer's hard drive. This enables our website to recognize you as a user when a connection is established between our web server and your browser. Cookies help us to determine the frequency of use and the number of users of our website. The content of the cookies we use is limited to an identification number that no longer allows any personal reference to the user. The main purpose of a cookie is to recognize visitors to the website.

Two types of cookies are used on our website:

  • Session cookies: These are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser until you leave our website and are automatically deleted at the end of your visit.
  • Permanent cookies: For better user-friendliness, cookies remain stored on your end device and allow us to recognize your browser on your next visit.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.

d) Hosting

All data to be processed in connection with the operation of the website is stored within the context of hosting. This is necessary to enable the operation of the website. We process this data on the basis of our legitimate interest according to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. We use the services of web hosting providers, to whom we transmit the data referred to above in order to make our website available.

d) Log file

We log your visit to our website. The following data is processed in this context: Name of the website accessed, date and time of access, the amount of data transferred, the browser type and version, the operating system you are using, the referrer URL (the previously visited website), your IP address and the requesting provider.

IP addresses are only saved in anonymized form. The administrators of the data center have access to the real, unmodified IP addresses for seven days in order to be able to pass them on to authorities for criminal prosecution, for example. The log file is deleted after fourteen days, unless it is required for clarification or verification of specific violations of the law of which we have become aware within the retention period.

This data is transferred on the basis of our legitimate interest in ensuring the security of our website in accordance with Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.

f) Google Analytics

This website may use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. We process your data on the basis of our overriding legitimate interest in creating easy-to-use website access statistics in a cost-efficient manner (Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR).

The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address and the URLs of the websites accessed) is transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the USA. We do not store any of your data collected in connection with Google Analytics.

This website uses the IP anonymization option offered by Google Analytics. Your IP address will therefore be shortened/anonymized by Google as soon as Google receives your IP address. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide us with other services related to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data by Google.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent Google from collecting your data in connection with Google Analytics by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link:
