Data Protection Declaration

Data protection

The operators of this website take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data with confidentiality and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data privacy policy.

Generally, you can use our website without providing any personal data. Where personal data (such as your name, address or e-mail address) is collected on our website, this will always be done on a voluntary basis as far as possible. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

Please note that data transmitted via the Internet (e.g. via e-mail communication) may be subject to security breaches. Complete protection of data against unauthorized access by third parties is not possible.

Cookies

Some of our webpages use cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies help make our website more user-friendly, efficient and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in your device's memory until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser when you visit the site again.

You can set your browser so that you are informed whenever a cookie is set and can choose on a case-by-case basis whether to allow this. You can also set up our browser to prohibit the setting of cookies in general and/or delete cookies automatically when you close the browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.

Server Log Files

The website provider automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request

This data cannot be used to identify specific people. This data is not combined with other data sources. We reserve the right to check this data subsequently if we become aware of specific indications of illegal use.

Contact Form

If you use our contact form to send us an enquiry, the details you enter on the form, including the contact details entered, will be stored by us for the purpose of dealing with your enquiry and in case of any follow-up questions. We do not share this data without your permission.

SSL Encryption

This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and for the protection of the transmission of confidential content, such as the enquiries you send to us as the site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection in your browser's address line when it changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock icon in your browser line.

If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information, Deletion, Blocking

You have the right to be provided at any time with information free of charge about any of your personal data that is stored as well as its origin, the recipient and the purpose for which it has been processed. You also have the right to have this data corrected, blocked or deleted. You can contact us at any time regarding this or any other questions using the address given in our legal notice if you have further questions on the topic of personal data.

Liability for content

As a service provider we are responsible according to §7 paragraph 1 of the German Teleservices Act (TMG) for our own contents on these pages under general law. According to §8 to §10 of the TMG we are not obliged as a service provider to monitor transmitted or stored third-party information or to investigate circumstances that indicate illegal activity.

This does not affect the obligations to remove or block the use of information under the general laws. However, any liability in this respect is only possible from the time when we become aware of a specific breach of the law. If we become aware of any such infringements of the law, we will immediately remove such content.

Liability for links

Our site contains links to external websites of third parties over whose contents we have no control. Therefore, we cannot assume any liability for these third-party contents either. The respective provider or operator of the pages is always responsible for the contents of the linked sites. The linked sites were checked for any legal infringements at the time the linked were created. There was no discernible illegal content at the time the links were created.

Continuous monitoring of the content of linked pages is not, however, reasonable without specific indications of legal violations. We will remove such links immediately if we become aware of any legal infringements.

Copyright

The contents and items created by the site operators on these pages are subject to German copyright law. The copying, editing, distribution and any use of the contents outside the limits imposed by copyright law require the written consent of the respective author or creator. Downloads and copies of this site are only permitted for private, non-commercial use.

If the contents on this site have not been created by the operator, the copyrights of third parties have been respected. In particular, third-party content is marked as such. Should you nevertheless become aware of a copyright infringement, we ask that you inform us accordingly. If we become aware of any legal violations, we will remove such content immediately.
