Data protection is of utmost importance to us. We thus support your right to protection of your personal data. We attach particular importance to the protection of privacy as well as to the protection of our internet users.

In the following we wish to inform you about how we have implemented the protection of your data online:

The website can be generally used without having to register as a user.
No software or hardware technology is used to record the e-mail address of the user or other personal data.

Log file
Whenever you access a page on our website or whenever you download a file, a log file ("cookie") on our server will record the access data.
Each data record consists of the following:

  • The page from which the file was requested
  • The name of the file
  • Date and time of the request
  • The volume of data transferred
  • The access status (file downloaded, file not found, etc.)

The data stored will be evaluated anonymously solely for statistical purposes. Of course our websites can also be used without cookies. You can prevent the saving of cookies by selecting "Do not accept cookies" on your computer. How this works in detail is described in the manual of the used browser. However, disabling cookies may result in functional limitations on our websites.

Handling personal data
Personal data will only be collected if you have expressly consented to this. If you entrust your data to us, the data will only be used for the purpose you intended. If, for example, you leave your name, e-mail address or other personal data, this data will be treated strictly confidentially.

If the declaration of consent for the above mentioned purposes also includes transmission of your data to other members in the group of companies, your data may be transferred to them.

You may revoke your consent to the use of your personal data at any time. We will then take all steps necessary to ensure that your request is complied with in full. After your data has been deleted you will be informed accordingly.

No personal data will be transferred to third parties except with your explicit consent or according to the statutory provisions.
