The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data as confidential, and handle it in accordance with the statutory data protection provisions and this Data Protection Declaration. It is generally possible to use our website without providing personal data. Where personal data (e.g. name, address or email address) is collected on our pages, this shall always take place on a voluntary basis, wherever possible. The data shall not be passed on to third parties without your express consent. We wish to point out that data transfer over the internet (e.g. when communicating by email) can involve security loopholes. Complete protection of data from access by third parties is not possible.
The web pages sometimes use what are known as “cookies”. Cookies do not cause damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies help to make our offering more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer and stored by your browser. The majority of the cookies that we use are what are known as “session cookies”. They are deleted automatically after your visit. Other cookies remain on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser on your next visit. You can set your browser to inform you of the placement of cookies, permit cookies on a case-by-case basis, accept cookies in certain cases, generally disallow cookies, or activate automatic deletion of cookies when you close your browser. Deactivating cookies may restrict the functionality of this website.
Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in “server log files”, which your browser sends to us automatically. This includes:
– browser type and version
– operating system used
– referrer URL
– host name of the accessing computer
– time of server request
This data cannot be attributed to specific people. It will not be matched with other data sources. We reserve the right to inspect the data at a later date if we have concrete reasons to suspect illegal use.
For security reasons and in order to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests that you send to us as the operator of the site, this page uses SSL encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the browser address bar changes from “http://” to “https://” and features the lock symbol. If SSL encryption is activated, the data that you send us cannot be seen by third parties.
Right of access, right to erasure, right to blocking
At all times you are entitled to receive, free of charge, information on the personal data stored on you, its origin, its recipients and the purpose of data processing, as well as being entitled to have the data rectified, blocked or erased. Please do not hesitate to contact us using the address specified in the legal notice at any time should you have any questions regarding this or other matters concerning personal data.
Objection to advertising emails
We hereby object to use of the contact details published as part of our obligation to provide a legal notice to send advertising and information materials not expressly requested. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited sending of advertising information, for example in the form of spam emails.
