3 Collection of personal data when you visit our website

(1) If the website is used purely for information, namely if you do not register or pass us information in some other way, we only collect the personal data your browser passes to our server. If you wish to view our website, we collect the following data, which are technically necessary for us, in order to display our website for you and ensure stability and security (legal basis is Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 letter f DSGVO):

– IP address

– Date and time of enquiry

– Time difference from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)

– Contents of the enquiry (concrete page)

– Access status/HTTP status code

– Data quantity transferred

– Website originating the enquiry

– Browser

– Operating system and its surface area

– Language and version of browser software.

(2) Additionally to the above-mentioned data cookies are stored on your computer during your use of our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard disk and allocated to the browser used by you, by which the place the cookie is located (this is our job) provides a certain flow of information. Cookies can neither perform programmes nor infect your computer with viruses. Their purpose is to render the online offers generally more user-friendly and effective.

4 SSL encryption

this page uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential contents you send to us as page operator. An encrypted connection can be recognised in that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and to the lock symbol.

5 Application of cookies:

Internet pages sometimes use so-called cookies. Cookies cause no damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. They serve to render our range more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files inserted in your computer and stored by your browser.

The ones most used by us are so-called “session cookies”, and after the end of your visit these are automatically deleted. Other cookies remain stored on your device, until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser upon your next visit.

You can set your browser such that you are informed about the insertion of cookies, activate your browser to allow them only occasionally, bar acceptance of cookies in individual cases or generally and arrange automatic deletion of cookies upon closing. In case of deactivation of cookies the functionality of this website may be compromised.

6 Further functions and offers on our website

(1) In addition to the purely informative use of our website we offer various services you can use, if you are interested. This generally involves giving further personal data, so that we can provide the respective service required, as governed by the above-mentioned data processing principles.

(2) For processing of your data we sometimes make use of external service providers, who are carefully selected and tasked by us, tied to our directives and regularly monitored.

7 Contact form

If you raise queries of any type when getting in contact with us by email or contact form, you freely give us your agreement to get in touch with you, which requires you to input a valid email address. This enables us to allocate the enquiry and its subsequent response.

The provision of further data is optional. Data provided by you are stored for purposes of processing your enquiry and for possible follow-up. Once the enquiry you raise is settled, personal data are automatically deleted.

8 Objection to processing of your data and withdrawal

(1) If you have given agreement to processing of your data, you can withdraw it at any time. Withdrawal of this sort influences the permissibility of processing your personal data provided to us, since you originally gave it to us.

(2) If we justify the processing of your personal data by balancing of interests, you can lodge an objection against processing. This is particularly the case if processing is not necessary in fulfilment of a contract with you, which we reflect in the following description of the functions. If you do indeed object, we would ask you to explain the reasons why we should not have processed your personal data in the way we did. In case of a justified complaint we check the situation and either desist from data processing, adjust it or demonstrate to you our compelling justified reasons for continuing processing.

9 Application through social media plug-ins

(1) We currently use the following social media plug-ins: Facebook, Google+ and Twitter. In the process we use the so-called two-click method, meaning that, if you visit our website, initially as a matter of principle no personal data are passed to the plug-in provider, whom you can recognise from the box marked round the initial letters or the logo. We offer you the possibility of using the button to communicate directly with the plug-in provider. Only if you click the marked field and thus activate it, does the plug-in provider receive information that you have accessed the corresponding website in our online range. Additionally the data mentioned in § 3 of this declaration are transmitted. In the case of Facebook after details of the respective provider in Germany the IP address is made anonymous immediately after capture. So by activating the plug-in, personal data from you are passed to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (with US providers in the USA). Since the plug-in provider performs data capture particularly via cookies, we recommend you delete all cookies before clicking the grey box above the security settings of your browser.

(2) We have no influence on data captured and data processing procedures, nor are we aware of the full scope of data capture, purposes of processing or storage duration. Neither do we have information on deletion of the captured data by the plug-in provider.

(3) The plug-in provider stores the data collected on you as user profile and applies these for purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-driven structuring of its website. This assessment is performed particularly (even for non-logged-in users) to display demand-driven advertising and inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You enjoy a right to object to creation of this user profile that involves addressing the respective plug-in provider. Using plug-ins we offer you the possibility of interacting with social networks and other users, so that we can improve our range and make it more interesting for you as user.

Legal basis for use of plug-ins is found in Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 letter f DS-GVO.

(4) Data transmission is performed irrespective of whether you possess an account with the plug-in provider and are logged in to it. If you are logged in to the plug-in provider, your data held by us are directly assigned to your account with the plug-in provider. If you click the activated button and for instance set a link to the page, the plug-in provider also stores this information in your user account and publicly informs your contacts. We recommend that after use of a social network of this type you regularly log off, particularly before activating the button, since this enables you to prevent having your profile assigned to the plug-in provider.

(5) Further information on purpose and scope of data capture and processing by the plug-in provider can be found in the data protection declarations by the providers as outlined in the following. There you will also find further information on your associated rights and settings possibilities to protect your private affairs.

12 Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts)

In order to make our contents cross-browser correct and graphically appealing, we use script libraries on this website such as Google Webfonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/).

Google Webfonts are transmitted to prevent repeated loading in your browser cache. If the browser does not support Google Webfonts, or access is denied, contents are displayed in standard script.

The use of script libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library operator. Thus it is theoretically possible – currently actually unclear whether and to what purpose – that operators of these libraries collect data.

The data protection guideline of the library operator Google can be found at:

https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

13 Objection to advertising emails

The use of contact data published in the context of the obligation to provide a masthead for sending advertising and information materials not specifically requested is hereby disagreed with. Operators of the websites expressly reserve the right to undertake legal steps in case of unsolicited mailing of advertising and information, perhaps by spam emails.

14 Changes to our data protection conditions

We reserve the right to occasionally adjust this data protection declaration, to ensure continuing compliance with current legal requirements, or in order to adjust changes to our services to the data protection declaration, for instance when we introduce new services. Your repeat visit is then governed by the new data protection declaration.
