The legal foundations of data protection can be found in the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG). We have taken technical and organizational measures to ensure that the rules on data protection are respected both by us and by external service providers.
The following privacy statement explains what information we collect during your visit to our website and what parts of that information may be used in what ways.
Anonymized standard data for statistical purposes:
In connection with your access, data is stored on our servers for backup purposes, which may allow identification (for example IP address, date, time and pages viewed). But there is no personal exploitation. For the statistical evaluation only anonymized data sets are used.
Personal data such as e.g. Name, address, telephone number or e-mail address will not be recorded by us, unless this information is voluntarily provided by you, e.g. in the context of a contact via e-mail or a subscription to a newsletter. We use your voluntarily provided data solely for the purpose for which you have given us these. We do not share this data with third parties.
You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time. The revocation can be made via a link in the newsletters themselves, in your profile area or by notification to the above contact options.
Links to other websites:
If you call an external website from our site (external link), the external provider may receive information from your browser from which of our websites you have come to him. The external provider is responsible for this data. We are, like any other provider of websites, unable to influence this process.
Integration of social plugins:
On our website also so-called social plugins are used for social networks such as facebook, twitter, xing and others. These plug-ins may be used to send and possibly use information, including personal information, to the respective service providers. We prevent the unconscious and unwanted collection and transmission of data to the service providers through a 2-click solution. To activate a desired plugin, it has to be activated by clicking on the corresponding button. Only through this activation of the plugin is the detection of information and its transmission to the service provider triggered. We ourselves do not collect personal data by means of social plugins.
Advertising from third parties on our websites:
When banners, buttons, pop-up windows or similar advertising material are displayed, personal user data such as name, address, telephone number or e-mail address are not collected. Only anonymous user data (operating system, browser version, etc.) are collected for statistical purposes.
Integration of services and content of third parties:
It may happen that contents of third parties are incorporated by other websites within this online offer. This always presupposes that the providers of this content perceive the IP address of the users. Because without the IP address, they could not send the content to the browser of each user. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content. We endeavor to use only content whose respective providers use the IP address solely for the delivery of the content. However, we do not have any influence on this if the third parties provide the IP address e.g. save for statistical purposes.
Right to information
If you have further questions about the data collected by us, please do not hesitate to contact us. The contact details can be found in our imprint. Of course, in this context we also fulfill your right to free information.
