These data (server log files) typically include the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet services provider and similar. Such information relates exclusively to data that do not permit any conclusions about you personally.

  • Evaluation of system security and stability
  • Other administrative functions

Processing your personal data is based on our legitimate interests stemming from the data registration purposes described above. We do not use your data for reaching conclusions about you personally. Recipients of such data are, where appropriate, technical services providers who are subcontracted to operate and maintain our website.
There is no transfer of your personal data to third parties.

Equally, you have the right to correction, blocking or, with the exception of the previously described details required for conducting business, deletion of your personal data.

To ensure that data blocking can be considered, such data must be assigned to a blocked data file for control purposes. You can also demand data deletion, provided there is no legal archiving obligation. Insofar as such an obligation exists, we will block your data on request.

In this way you can also carry out corrections or revoke consents for the future by notifying us accordingly.

This serves to assign the inquiry and the subsequent response. Disclosing further data is optional. Any information you provide will be registered for the purpose of processing the inquiry, including potential follow-up questions.

Google Maps

On our website we use the features offered in Google Maps. Google Maps is operated by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter „Google“).

We do not register any personal data via this integration of Google Maps.

If you do not want Google to collect, process or use any of your personal data via our website, you can deactivate JavaScript in the settings of your browser. However, this may mean that you cannot use our website, or to a limited extent only.

Data security

We deploy appropriate technological and organizational security measures to protect your personal data registered with us against manipulation, partial or total loss, and against unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are consistently updated to meet the requirements of technological developments.

To ensure the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption processes (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.

Data retention

We store personal data only as long as is necessary to use them for the tracking and analysis services described above, including their further processing within the scope of our legitimate interests. Contractual data are stored for longer periods, as this is stipulated by statutory archiving obligations. Archiving obligations that require us to retain data stem from accounting regulations and from tax law provisions. To comply with these directives, business communications, concluded contracts and accounting records must be archived for up to 10 years. Inasmuch as we no longer need such data to carry out our services for you, that data will be blocked. This means that the data may then only be used for accounting and tax purposes.

Changes to our data protection policy

We reserve the right to update this data protection declaration so that it always corresponds to the current legal requirements, or to implement changes to our services in that data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services. Consequently, your renewed visit will be subject to the new data protection declaration.
