The website operator takes your data protection very seriously and treats your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory provisions. As new technologies and the constant further development of this website may result in changes to this data protection declaration, we recommend that you read the data protection declaration again at regular intervals.
The definitions of the terms used in this declaration (e.g. “personal data” or “processing”) can be found in Art. 4 DSGVO.
To protect your transmitted data in the best possible way, the website operators use SSL encryption. You can recognize such encrypted connections by the prefix “https://” in the page link in the address line of your browser. Unencrypted pages are marked by “http://”. All data that you transmit to this website – e.g. when making inquiries or logging in – cannot be read by third parties thanks to SSL encryption.
We as website operator or page provider, collect data on access to the website on the basis of our legitimate interest (see Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO) and store this data as “server log files” on the website server. The following data are logged as follows:
- Date and time at the time of access
- Amount of data sent in bytes
- Source / reference from which you accessed the page
- Browser used
- Operating system used
- IP address used
The server log files are stored for a maximum of 7 days and then deleted. The data is stored for security reasons, e.g. to be able to clarify cases of abuse. If data must be kept for reasons of evidence, they are excluded from deletion until the incident has been finally clarified.

Note: It is not guaranteed that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions if you make the appropriate settings.
Collection and processing of personal data
The website operator collects, uses and passes on your personal data only if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of data.
Personal data are all information which serves to determine your person and which can be traced back to you, for example your name, your e-mail address and your telephone number.
You can also visit this website without providing any personal information. However, in order to improve our online offer, we store (without personal reference) your access data to this website. This access data includes, for example, the file you requested or the name of your Internet provider. By making the data anonymous, it is not possible to draw conclusions about your person.
- Which ones? We process personal data such as first name, surname, IP address, e-mail address, place of residence, postcode and details of the contents of the contact form.
- How? We process personal data only with the express permission of the users concerned and in compliance with the applicable data protection regulations.
- Why? Personal data is processed on the basis of our legitimate interest in fulfilling our contractually agreed services and optimizing our online offer.
Handling of contact data
If you contact us as a website operator through the contact options offered, your details will be stored so that they can be used to process and answer your enquiry. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.
Dealing with comments and contributions
If you leave a contribution or comment on this website, your IP address will be saved. This is done on the basis of our legitimate interests as defined in Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO and serves the security of us as website operators: if your comment violates applicable law, we can be prosecuted for this, which is why we have an interest in the identity of the author of the comment or contribution.
Use of reCAPTCHA
In order to protect input forms on our site, we use the service “reCAPTCHA” of the company Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter “Google”. The use of this service makes it possible to distinguish whether the corresponding input is of human origin or whether it is misused by automated machine processing.
To our knowledge, the referrer URL, the IP address, the behaviour of website visitors, information about the operating system, browser and length of stay, cookies, display instructions and scripts, the user’s input behaviour and mouse movements in the “reCAPTCHA” checkbox area are transmitted to “Google”. Google uses the information obtained in this way to digitise books and other printed matter and to optimise services such as Google Street View and Google Maps (e.g. house number and street name recognition).
The IP address transmitted as part of “reCAPTCHA” is not merged with other data from Google unless you are logged into your Google account at the time of using the “reCAPTCHA” plug-in. If you wish to prevent this transmission and storage of data about you and your behaviour on our website by “Google”, you must log out of “Google” before you visit our site or use the reCAPTCHA plug-in.
Use of Google Analytics
On the basis of our legitimate interests, this website uses for the optimization and analysis of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO the service “Google Analytics”, which is provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). The service (Google Analytics) uses “cookies” – text files which are stored on your end device. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
Google LLC complies with the European data protection law and is certified under the Privacy-Shield-Agreement zertifiziert.
On this website IP-anonymisation is used. The IP address of the users is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area and in the other contracting states of the agreement. Only in individual cases is the IP address initially transferred in full to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Through this shortening, the personal reference of your IP address is no longer necessary. The user’s IP address transmitted by the browser is not combined with other data stored by Google.
Within the framework of the agreement on the contract data agreement, which we as website operator have concluded with Google Inc., the latter uses the information collected to create an evaluation of website use and website activity and provides services associated with Internet use.
The data collected by Google on our behalf is used to evaluate the use of our online offer by individual users, e.g. to create reports on website activity in order to improve our online offer.
You have the option of preventing the storage of cookies on your device by making appropriate settings in your browser. It cannot be guaranteed that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions if your browser does not allow cookies.
Furthermore, you can use a browser plug-in to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being sent to Google Inc. and used by Google Inc. The following link will take you to the corresponding plugin.
Alternatively, by clicking on this link (deactivate Google Analytics) you prevent Google Analytics from collecting data about you within this website. By clicking on the link above, you download an “opt-out cookie”. Your browser must therefore allow the storage of cookies for this purpose. If you delete your cookies regularly, you will need to click on the link again each time you visit this website.

Use of Google Tag Manager
This website uses the Google Tag Manager. Google Tag Manager is a solution that allows marketers to manage website tags through one interface. The Tag Manager tool itself (which implements the tags) is a cookie-less domain and does not collect personal information. The tool triggers other tags that may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If disabled at the domain or cookie level, it will persist for all tracking tags implemented by Google Tag Manager.
As a user, you have the right to receive, upon request, free information about which personal data has been stored about you. You also have the right to correct incorrect data and to restrict or delete your personal data. If applicable, you can also claim your right to data portability. If you believe your data has been processed unlawfully, you can file a complaint with the appropriate regulatory authority.
If your request does not conflict with a legal obligation to retain data (eg data retention), you have the right to delete your data. Data stored by us, if they are no longer necessary for their purpose and there are no legal retention periods, will be deleted. If deletion can not be carried out because the data is required for legal purposes, data processing is restricted. In this case, the data is locked and not processed for other purposes.
Right of objection
Users of this website may exercise their right of objection under Art. 21 DSGVO and object to the processing of their personal data at any time.
If you wish to correct, block, delete or obtain information about the personal data stored about you, or if you have any questions regarding the collection, processing or use of your personal data, or if you wish to revoke any consents you may have given, please contact the following e-mail address: email@example.com.
