Data Protection

Protection of your personal data is of great importance to us. We therefore, as a matter of routine, handle your personal data responsibly and in compliance with the applicable statutory data protection provisions and legislation. This Privacy Policy contains information for you about our data processing methods. The personal data processed is not transferred to third parties or otherwise transmitted without your express consent.

Collecting data helps us to develop and improve our digital presence and to optimize our range of services. We will use the data we collect about you
to enable your use of the digital presence, for internal, system-related purposes, such as technical administration and system security, for statistical purposes, in order to enable us to tailor the digital presence more closely to your needs through the anonymous evaluation of general user behaviour, to provide logins, online services and contractually-compliant processing of these services.

We will retain your information for no longer than necessary and it will remain confidential. This excludes the transmission of personal data to governmental institutions and authorities as well as to private persons with a right thereto based on statutory regulations, court orders or regulatory decisions, as well as its transfer to governmental institutions for the purposes of taking legal action or prosecution should our legally protected rights be challenged. As is common practice with many websites, certain data such as IP addresses and other usage information, is collected automatically and then analysed and processed anonymously by our web analysis software. By using our digital presence you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of this data in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Our web servers automatically log every visit in a temporary log file. User-specific data (such as the IP address of the requesting computer, identification data of the browser used, the operating system of the requesting computer, the amount of data transferred, the name of the Internet Service Provider, the date and time of access) and technical data (such as the name and URL of the referring web page when the website was accessed via a link and, additionally, the search term if it was accessed via a search engine) are logged and analysed anonymously.

It is not possible to trace the identity of individuals during these operations. The information generated in this way may be transmitted to a server abroad and stored there.
