We take data protection seriously
Protection of your personal data is very important to us. Therefore, we always handle personal information that you enter on our portal with strict confidentiality and in accordance with the data protection provisions, particularly the German General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and German Federal Data Protection Act (new version of FDPA).
When you visit our website, our web servers save the IP address of your Internet service provider, the website from which you visit us, the pages you visit on our site and the date and duration of the visit by default. This information is absolutely necessary for the technical transmission of websites and secure server operation. This data is not evaluated on a personalized level.
If you send us data using a contact form, this data is saved on our servers as part of our data backup. We use your data exclusively for handling your requests. Your data is handled with strict confidentiality. It is not transferred to third parties.
Personal data is data related to you. This includes, for example, your name, mailing address and e-mail address. You do not need to disclose any personal data in order to visit our website. However, in some cases, we require your name and address as well as other information to be able to provide you with the requested service.
The same applies if we send informational materials upon your request or respond to your inquiries. In this context, only data that you have sent to us of your own accord is stored, and we will always notify you of this. When you use one of our services, we generally collect only data that is necessary to be able to provide you with this service. Provision of any additional information to us is completely voluntary. We process personal data in order to be able to offer you our service or to pursue our commercial goals.
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in server log files that your browser transfers to us automatically. These include:
This data is not merged with any other data sources. Processing takes place in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR based on our legitimate interest in improving the stability and function of our website. For reasons of technical security, particularly to prevent attempted attacks on our web server, this data is stored by us for a short time. This data cannot be traced back to individual persons. After seven days at the latest, the data is anonymized by abbreviating the IP address at the domain level so that it is no longer possible to trace it back to the individual user. The data (in anonymized form) is also used for statistical purposes. No comparison with other databases or forwarding to third parties, in whole or in part, takes place.
Of course, you are also able to visit our website without accepting cookies. If you do not want your computer to be recognized upon your next visit, you can also opt out of using cookies by changing the settings in your browser to "Block cookies." The procedure for this can be found in the user guide of your personal browser. If you opt out of using cookies, however, it may lead to limitations to the use of some areas of our website.
In certain cases, we use the Google Inc. reCAPTCHA service to ensure sufficient data security when transmitting forms. In particular, this service determines whether the entry has been submitted by an actual person or improperly through automated mechanical processing. The service includes transmission of the IP address and, if necessary, additional data required by the reCAPTCHA service, to Google. The differing data protection provisions of Google Inc apply in this case. You can find more information at http://www.google.de/intl/de/privacy or https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy
We have taken technical and administrative security measures to protect your personal data from loss, destruction, tampering and unauthorized access. All of our employees and all service providers working for us are bound to the applicable data protection regulations.
Whenever we collect and process personal data, it gets encrypted before it is transmitted. This means that your data cannot be misused by a third party. Our security measures undergo a constant process of improvement and our privacy policies are constantly being revised. Please make sure that you have access to the latest version.
At all times, you have the right to information about your stored data, the right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing of your data, the right to object to processing and a right to data portability and to complaints in accordance with the provisions of data protection law.
You can request information from us about whether and to what extent we process your data.
If we process data about you that is incomplete or incorrect, you can request that we rectify or complete it at any time.
You can request that we erase your data, provided that we are processing it unlawfully or the processing interferes disproportionately with your legitimate protection interests. Please note that reasons may exist that prevent us from deleting your data immediately, such as in the case of statutory retention periods.
Independently of the assertion of your right to erasure, we will delete your data immediately and completely, insofar as we are not prevented from doing so by any legally mandated or statutory retention period.
You can request that we restrict the processing of your data if
You can demand that we provide you with the data you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and that you can transmit this data to another responsible party without interference from us, insofar as
Where technically feasible, you can request that we transmit your data directly to another responsible body.
If we process your data out of a legitimate interest, you can object to, and revoke your consent for, this data processing at any time; this would also apply to any profiling based on these provisions. We will then no longer process your data unless we can prove the existence of binding reasons for processing that supersede your interests, rights and freedoms or that the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending against legal claims. You can revoke your consent to the processing of your data for the purpose of direct marketing at any time without specifying reasons.
If you believe that we are infringing against German or European data protection laws in processing your data, we ask that you contact us to clear up any questions. Of course, you also have the right to contact the supervisory body responsible for you, which is the respective state office of the data protection commissioner.
To assert one of the aforementioned rights against us, contact our data protection officer. In case of doubt, we may request additional information to confirm your identity.
