Personal data is data related to you. This includes your name, address, and e-mail address. You do not need to disclose any personal data in order to visit our website. 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. We always notify you of this in these cases. Furthermore, we only save the data you have automatically or voluntarily transferred to us.
When you use one of our services, we generally only collect data that is necessary to be able to provide you with this service. We may ask you for additional information, but this is voluntary. We handle personal data in order to be able to offer you our services or to trace our commercial goals.
Automatically Saved Data
Server Log Files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in server log files that your browser transfers to us automatically. These include:
- Date and time of the request
- Name of the requested file
- Page from which the file was requested
- Access status (file transmitted, file not found, etc.)
- Web browser and operating system used
- Complete IP address of the requesting computer
- Transmitted data volume
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. In addition, the data is processed for statistical purposes; no comparison with other databases or forwarding to third parties, in whole or in part, takes place. The number of page views is published only as part of our server statistics, which we publish every two years in our activity report.

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.

Right to restriction of processing:
You can request that we restrict the processing of your data if

You can revoke your consent to the processing of your data for the purpose of direct marketing at any time without specifying reasons.
