Privacy Statement

Data protection
We would now like to present you with information about our data protection statement. Here you will find information about the collection and use of personal data during the use of our website. The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We comply in this matter with the data protection law applicable in Germany and the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). You are welcome to access this statement at any time from our website.
We would like to point out expressly that data transfer via the internet (e.g. as a result of communication by e-mail) may not be fully secure, and cannot be fully protected from access by third parties.
The use of the contact data contained in our legal notice for the purposes of commercial advertising is expressly not permitted unless we have issued prior consent in writing, or a business relationship already exists. The owner and all the people named on this website hereby object to any commercial use or transfer of their data.

Personal data
You can visit our website without having to provide any personal data. Where personal data (such as name, address or e-mail address) are collected on our web pages, this is done as far as possible on a voluntary basis. These data will never be passed on to third parties without your express permission. If a contractual relationship between you and us should be established, designed or modified, or if you send us an inquiry, we will collect and use personal data about you where this is necessary for these purposes (master data). We will collect, process and use personal data in so far as it is necessary to facilitate your acceptance of our offer to use the website (user data). All personal data are only saved as long as is necessary for the purpose specified (handling your inquiry or processing a contract). The retention periods required by commercial and tax law are taken into account here. If so requested by the competent authorities, we may in individual cases provide information about these data (master data) if it is required for the purposes of prosecution, risk prevention, fulfilment of statutory duties of the domestic intelligence services for the Protection of the Constitution or the Military Counterintelligence Service, or for the purpose of the enforcement of intellectual property rights.

Cookies
Internet sites sometimes use so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and contain no viruses. Cookies are used to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and stored by your browser. Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser on the next visit. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, to exclude the acceptance of cookies for specific cases or in general, and to activate the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed. The functionality of this website may be restricted when cookies are deactivated.

Server log files
The provider of the site automatically captures and stores information in the so-called server log-files, which automatically transfer your browser to us. They are:

  • Browser type / Browser version
  • used operating system
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server query

This data cannot be assigned to a certain person. A compilation of this data with other data sources is not performed. We reserve the right to check the data retrospectively, when concrete indications regarding illegal usage become known to us.

Contact form
If you send us inquiries by means of a contact form, your information from the inquiry form, including the contact details you provide, will be stored with us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and for the case of connection questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

Web Tracking
For Webtracking the operator of the website uses the software Matomo, formerly Piwik. In addition to Google Analytics Piwik or Matomo is one of the most used analysis tools.

How does Matomo / Piwik work?
As with other analytics tools, Matomo / Piwik also generates extensive traffic statistics on the website in real time. It not only collects information about which pages visitors look at, but also what routes they take within the site and where they come from.

Data protection at Matoma / Piwik
A big advantage of Piwik over other analytics software is the fact that it is hosted on its own server (so-called in-house hosting). In concrete terms, this means that only the site operator has the data collected.
So they are not shipped to foreign servers where they are out of control and may be used in a non-compliant manner. Thus, Matomo / Piwik can offer more privacy because only the site operator has full control over the data.

Google Maps
This website uses the map service Google Maps via API. This service is provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. To use the functions of Google Maps storage of your IP address is required. This information will usually be transferred to and stored on, a server in the USA. The provider of this website has no influence on this data transmission.
For further information, please see Google’s Privacy Policy: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/

SSL encryption
This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as the inquiries you send to us as a site operator. An encrypted connection indicates that the browser’s address line changes from “http: //” to “https: //” and on the lock icon in your browser line. If the SSL encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.

Right to Information, Deletion, Blocking
You have the right to be informed about your person-related data, their origin and addressee and the purpose of data processing as well as the right to correction, blocking or deletion of those data at any time and free of charge.
