Access data/Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. Access data include:
- Name of accessed website
- Data and time of access
- Transmitted data quantity
- Report about successful access
- Browser type and version, user operating system
- Referrer URL (URL referring to our website, e.g. Google search)
- IP address and requesting provider.
The provider uses the log data only for statistical analyses for the purpose of the operation, the security and optimization of the service. However, the provider reserves the right to check the log data retroactively if there is a justified suspicion of unlawful use on the basis of concrete evidence.
Handling of personal data
Personal information is information that helps a person to be identified, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person. This includes name, email address or phone number. But also data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites somebody has accessed are among personal data.
Personal data are only collected, used and passed on by the provider if permissible by law or if users consent to the collection of data.
Protection of personal data
We have taken technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data from loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorised access. Our security measures are being continuously reviewed and optimised in line with technological developments.
When using a service on our website, your personal data will be transmitted to us. In order for those not to fall into the wrong hands, we encrypt them using the SSL method (Secure Socket Layer). The SSL method is currently the most common and secure data transmission method on the Internet.
How does the SSL method work?
The Secure Socket Layer (SSL) method protects data that a customer sends over the Internet to a company's server. SSL provides triple protection:
- It ensures that a form is returned only to the server from which it was opened.
- It checks whether data reach their respective recipient in full and unaltered.
SSL is used every time you see a small (usually green) lock on the bottom left of your browser's status bar.
Handling contact requests
When contacting us via our contact form, user details will be stored for the purpose of processing the request as well as in the event that follow-up questions arise. We will not share these data without your consent.
Handling newsletter data
If you would like to receive the newsletter provided on the website, we will need an email address from you, as well as information allowing us to verify that you are indeed the owner of the specified email address and that you agree to receive the newsletter. No further data are collected. We use these data exclusively for the transmission of the requested information and do not pass them on to third parties.
You can revoke at any time your consent to storing your data and your email address as well as their use for sending the newsletter.
Use of services and contents by third parties
It may happen that content by third parties, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are included as part of this online service. This always presupposes that the providers of these contents (hereinafter referred to as "third party providers") detect the users’ IP address. For without the IP address, they could not send the content to the browser of the respective user. The display of these contents therefore requires the IP address. We attempt to use only content whose respective providers use the IP address solely for content delivery. However, it is outside our sphere of influence whether third parties store the IP address for e.g. statistical purposes. Whenever we are aware of this, we will inform the users about it.
