We take data protection seriously
The protection of your privacy when processing personal data is an important concern for us. When you visit our website, our web server automatically records the IP of your internet service provider, the website from which you visit us, the web pages you visit, and the date and length of your visit. This information is required for the technical transmission of the websites and for servers to operate securely. This data is not personally evaluated.
If you send us information via our contact form, this data will be stored on our servers during the course of data backup. We will only use your data to process your request. Your data will, of course, be treated as strictly confidential. It will not be transferred to any third party.

Personal data is data about you as a person. This includes your name, your address and your email address. You do not have to disclose any personal data in order to visit our website. In some cases, we will need your name and address as well as further information in order to be able to offer you your desired service.
The same applies in the event that we send you informational material at your request, or if we answer your questions. In all such cases, we will make it explicit. Furthermore, we only store the data that you have provided us with – either voluntarily or automatically.
If you use one of our services, we generally only collect data that is necessary in order for us to be able to offer you our services. We may ask you for further information, but giving this is voluntary. Whenever we process personal data, we do this to be able to offer you our service or to pursue our commercial goals.
Automatically stored data
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 include:
- The date and time of the request
- The name of the requested file
- The page from which the file was requested
- The access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
- The web browser and operating system used
- The complete IP address of the computer requesting the file
- The amount of data transferred
This data will not be combined with data from other sources. Processing is carried out in accordance with art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR based on our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website.
For reasons of technical security, in particular, to counter attempted attacks on our web server, we store this data for a short period. It is not possible for us to draw a conclusion on individual persons on the basis of this data. After seven days at the latest, the data is rendered anonymous by means of abbreviation of the IP address to the domain level, so that it is no longer possible to link them to individual users. In addition, the data is also processed in anonymised form for statistical purposes; it is not compared with other pools of data or transferred to third parties, nor are extracts from it. The number of page views is only shown in the context of our server statistics, which we publish in our activity report every two years.
When you visit our websites, we may store information on your computer in the form of cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows Internet sites and servers that have been visited to distinguish the individual’s browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A particular Internet browser can be recognised and identified by the unique cookie ID.
By using session cookies, the data controller can provide the users of this website with a user-friendly service that would not be possible without cookies being placed.
The features of the WordPress plug-in WP Statistics are embedded on our website. This plugin is used to record and store data from users/visitors to our website. The data is only collected/stored for the purpose of site analysis. We do not pass on or sell any data. The data is stored anonymously, without the IP address being stored.

We have taken technical and administrative security measures to protect your personal data against loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorised access. All our employees, as well as service providers working for us, are committed to the applicable data protection legislation.
You have the right to access information about the processing of you stored data, and to have it rectified, erased or restricted, a right to object to the processing, and a right to data portability, and a right to lodge a complaint in accordance with the requirements of data protection law.
The right of access to information:
You may request confirmation from us as to whether and to what extent we are processing your data.
Right to rectification:
If we process your personal data that is incomplete or inaccurate, you may request that we correct or complete it at any time.
Right to erasure:
You may ask us to erase your personal data if we are processing it unlawfully or if the processing interferes disproportionately with your legitimate protection interests. Please note that there may be reasons that prevent immediate erasure, e.g., in the case of legally regulated retention obligations.
Irrespective of your right to such erasure, we will immediately and completely erase your data, unless there is a contractual or legal duty requiring its further retention.
Right to restriction of processing
You may request that we restrict the processing of your data if:
– you contest the accuracy of the data for a period of time that allows us to verify the accuracy of the data;
– the processing of the data is unlawful, but you decline to have it erased and instead request a restriction on the use of the data;
– we no longer need the data for the intended purpose, but you still need the data to assert or defend legal claims; or
– you have lodged an objection to the processing of the data.
Right to data portability:
You have the right to receive from us the personal data you provided to us in a structured, current, and machine-readable format, and you have the right to be able to transmit this data to another data controller without our interference, provided that
– we are processing this data on the basis of consent that you have given to us, which can be revoked, or to fulfil an existing contractual relationship between us; and
– this processing is carried out with the aid of automated procedures.
If technically feasible, you may demand that we transfer your data directly to another data controller.
Right to object:
In the event that we are processing your data to safeguard legitimate interests, you can object to such processing at any time; this would also apply to any profiling based on these provisions. We will then no longer process your data, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is intended to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes without stating a reason.
Right to lodge a complaint:
If you believe that we are in breach of German or European data protection legislation when processing your data, please contact us to clarify any questions. Of course, you also have the right to contact the supervisory authority responsible for you, i.e., the relevant State Office for Data Protection Supervision.
If you want to assert one of the mentioned rights against us, please contact our data protection officer. In case of doubt, we may request additional information to confirm your identity.
