PRIVACY POLICY

Privacy Statement

The operators of this website take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data as confidential and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this privacy policy.
Generally, it is possible to use our website without providing any personal data. Wherever personal data (for example, name, address or email address) is collected on our website, it is always collected on a voluntary basis wherever possible. This data shall not be disclosed to third parties without your explicit consent. Please note that data transmitted via the internet (e.g. via email communication) may be subject to security breaches. It is not possible to fully protect data from third-party access.


Cookies 

Some of our webpages use cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies help make our website more user-friendly, efficient and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. Most of the cookies we use are “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in your device’s memory until you delete them. These cookies make it possible to recognise your browser when you next visit the site. You can configure your browser to inform you about the use of cookies so that you can decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept or reject a cookie. Alternatively, your browser can be configured to automatically accept cookies under certain conditions, to always reject them or to automatically delete them when closing your browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.


Server log files

The website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us in “server log files”. These are:

Browser type and version, your operating system, the referrer URL, the host name of the accessing computer and the time of the server inquiry.  This data cannot be associated with specific people and it will not be combined with data from other sources. We reserve the right to retrospectively check this data if we become aware of specific evidence of illegal use.


Contact Forms

 If you use our contact form to send us an enquiry, the details you enter on the form, including the entered contact details, will be stored by us to deal with your enquiry and in case of any follow-up questions. We do not share this data without your permission.


Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service. It is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses cookies. These are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Google Fonts

In order to provide an user-friendly and aesthetically pleasing design, this website uses Google Fonts. These fonts are downloaded to your computer and stored in your browser’s cache when you open our website. This process requires establishing a connection between your browser and the Google server from which these fonts are distributed. This event enables Google to track that our website has been opened from your IP.

The use of Google Fonts is a legitimate interest according to DSGVO Sec. 6 subparagraph 1 sec. f, as they provide a user-friendly and aesthetically appealing design of the website.

Should your browser not support Google Fonts, it will automatically download a locally stored standard font. This may result in unintended errors and an unusual representation of the website.

For further information please consult:

IP anonymisation

We have activated the IP anonymisation feature on this website. Your IP address will be shortened by Google within the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services regarding website and internet usage for the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not conflated with other Google data.

Contract data processing

We have entered into an agreement with Google for the outsourcing of our data processing and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.


Demographic data collection by Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics’ demographic features. This allows reports to be generated containing statements about the age, gender, and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and third-party visitor data. This collected data cannot be attributed to any specific individual person. You can disable this feature at any time by adjusting the ads settings in your Google account or you can forbid the collection of your data by Google Analytics as described in the section “objecting to the collection of data.”

 
YouTube

Our website uses plugins from YouTube, which is operated by Google. The operator of the pages is YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. If you visit one of our pages featuring a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. Here the Youtube server is informed about which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, you allow YouTube to associate your browsing behaviour directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account. You can find further information about handling user data in the Privacy Policy of YouTube at:

SSL encryption

This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and for the protection of the transmission of confidential content, such as the enquiries you send to us as the site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection in your browser’s address line when it changes from “http://” to “https://” and the lock icon is displayed in your browser’s address bar. If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.

At any time, you have the right to be provided with free information about your stored personal data, its origin, the recipient and the purpose for which it has been processed.
