Purposes of collection of personal data and third parties

When using the website for purely informational purposes we will only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. All collection and processing of data takes place for specific purposes. As a matter of principle, the data you provide us with will not be passed on to third parties. In particular, data is not passed on to third parties for advertising purposes.

Deletion and blocking of personal data

Your data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected. After a purely informational use of the website, your IP address will be deleted from all systems used in connection with the operation of this website in accordance with the legal requirements.

Server log files

When you visit the website, a connection is made with your browser. The information collected as a result will be temporarily stored in system files and automatically recorded: the IP address of your device, the date and time of access, the name and URL of any retrieved files, the website from which access occurred or from which you were transferred to our website (referrer URL), the browser used and, if applicable, the operating system of your device as well as the name of your provider.

The data mentioned is processed by us for the purpose of establishing a smooth connection as well as for system security, particularly for securing our server against attacks (Art. 6 para. 1 f GDPR). The resulting connection data is automatically deleted, usually after a maximum of 60 days. If the website is misused, log data that has to be retained for reasons of further evidence will be removed until the incident is resolved.

Usage of Cookies

In part, we use so-called cookies: small text files that are stored on your device. These are, first of all, session cookies, which remain until you close all of your browser windows.  We need these session cookies so that we can process your request on our website and can steer you to the various subpages. We have a legitimate interest in using such cookies, since we otherwise would not be able to offer our website in the current manner, and they serve to make our offer technically free of errors (Art. 6 para. 1 f GDPR). If you do not wish for cookies to be used, you can block the use of cookies in your browser settings. You will still be able to visit our website, but you will not be able to use it to the full extent.

You can set your browser to delete cookies as soon as you close the browser or such that your browser does not accept cookies either in certain cases or in general. By deactivating cookies, the function of our site may be restricted. If cookies are stored by external providers, such as for analysis services, they are treated separately in this Data Privacy Statement.

Data security / encryption

This website uses "hypertext transfer protocol secure" (https). The connection between your browser and our server is encrypted.

On our Website we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”).
Google will analyze your use of our Website on our behalf. To this purpose we use, among others, the cookies described in more detail in the above table. The information collected by Google in connection with your use of our Website (e.g. the referring URL, our webpages visited by you, your browser type, your language settings, your operating system, your screen resolution) will be transmitted to a server of Google in the US, where it will be stored and analyzed. The respective results will then be made available to us in anonymized form. Your usage data will not be connected to your full IP address during this process. We have activated on our Website the IP anonymizing function offered by Google, which will delete the last 8 digits (type IPv4) or the last 80 bits (type IPv6) of your IP address. Moreover, Google is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield, which ensures that an adequate level of data protection is maintained with respect to the processing of data by Google in the US.
You may revoke your consent to the use of web analysis at any time, either by downloading and installing the provided Google Browser Plugin. This will prevent the application of web analysis only as long as you use the browser on which you installed the plugin and do not delete the opt-out cookie. Further information on Google Analytics is available in the Google Analytics Terms of Use, the Privacy and Data Protection Guidelines of Google Analytics and in the Google Privacy Policy.

In addition to using the provided Google Browser Plugin you may also stop the usage of Google Analytics by clicking this link diesen Link anklicken. This will prevent the application of web analysis as long as you use the browser on which you installed the plugin and do not delete the opt-out cookie.

Google Web Fonts

We use Web Fonts from Google to ensure a consistent presentation of our website (Art. 6 para. 1 f GDPR). To do this, your browser connects to Google's servers, which inform Google that our website has been accessed via your IP address. If your browser does not support Web Fonts, a default font will be used by your computer. Google is certified pursuant to the "EU-US Privacy Shield", an agreement between the European Union (EU) and the USA concerning compliance with European data protection standards in the USA.
