IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE LEGAL REGULATIONS
You can usually use our website without providing any personal data about yourself. If personal data is collected on our website (e.g. name, postal address or e-mail addresses), it takes place on a voluntary basis wherever possible. We do not pass this data on to third parties without your express consent and it only serves for responding to your enquiries.
We would like to point out that transferring data over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can be vulnerable to security gaps. It is impossible to completely protect data against unauthorised access by third parties.
Most of the cookies we use are what are referred to as ‘session cookies’. They are automatically deleted once you leave our website. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser the next time you visit our website.
Server log files
The provider of this website automatically collects and stores information in what are referred to as server log files that your browser sends us automatically. This information includes:
- Browser type/Browser version
- Operating system used
- Referring URL
- The host name of the computer accessing our website
- The time of the server request
It is impossible to associate the data that is logged with any one person. Nor is it merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to perform a retrospective analysis of this data if we become aware of specific evidence of its unlawful use.
If you use our contact form to send us enquiries, we store the information you provide in this form along with the contact details you enter into it to precipitate processing your enquiry and to handle any follow-up questions. We do not disclose this information without your consent.
This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of sensitive content, such as the requests you send to us as the site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection when you change the address line in your browser from “http://” to “https://” by the lock icon in the address bar. If SSL encryption is enabled, the data you submit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Right to information, deletion, blocking
You have the right to receive information free of charge at any time concerning personal data stored on your person. This includes information on its origin, to whom it was sent, the purpose of its processing, and the right to rectify, block or delete this data. You can contact us at any time using the address provided in the Legal Notice if you have any questions concerning this or other issues relating to personal data.
Objecting to promotional emails
As part of our duty to provide a legal notice on this website, we hereby prohibit using the contact data published for sending unsolicited advertisements and information material. The operator of this website reserves the express right to take legal action in the event that unsolicited promotional information, such as spam emails, is sent out.
The reason why we do not use Facebook plugins
This website does not have plugins from the social network Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA integrated into it. On websites in general, you can recognise the Facebook plugin by the Facebook logo or ‘Like’ button.
Use of Google Maps
On our website, we use the component “Google Maps” from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, in the following referred to as “Google”.
Each time the component “Google Maps” is called up, Google sets a cookie to process user settings and data when you view the page that has the Google Maps component integrated into it. This cookie is not usually deleted when you close your browser but will expire after a certain period of time unless you delete it manually.
If you disagree with your data being processed, you can disable the “Google Maps” service, thus preventing the transmission of data to Google. To do so, disable the Java Script feature in your browser. We would like to point out, however, that this will partially or entirely limit your ability to use “Google Maps” on this website.
