  3. Collection of personal data when visiting our website

    (1) When you visit our website purely as a source of information, i.e. if you do not register with us or otherwise transmit any information, we will only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. When you decide to view our website, we collect the following data, which are required for technical reasons in order to display our website and ensure it is stable and secure (legal basis: point f Article 6(1) (GDPR):

    • IP address (anonymised)
    • Date and time of the request
    • Time difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
    • Content of the request (specific site/page)

    • The data volume transmitted
    • Website from which the request came
    • Browser
    • Operating system and its user interface
    • Language and version of the browser software.

    (2) In addition to the aforementioned data, cookies will be stored on your computer when you use our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard drive and assigned to the browser you use, and which enable certain information to flow to the location which places the cookie (in this case us). Cookies are not capable of running programs or transmitting viruses onto your computer. They serve to make our website offer more user-friendly and effective.

    (3) Use of cookies:

    a) This website uses the types of cookie listed below. Their nature and function are equally described below:

    • Transient cookies (see b)
    • Persistent cookies (see c).

    b) Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. This group of cookies especially includes session cookies. These store a so-called session ID through which various requests from your browser can be assigned to a common session. They enable your computer to be recognised on your return to our website. Session cookies are deleted when you log off or when you close the browser.

    c) Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a pre-defined period of time, which can vary depending on the cookie. You can delete these cookies at any time by going to the security settings for your browser.

    d) You can configure your browser settings to your personal preferences and e.g. refuse third-party cookies or all cookies. We would point out, however, that doing so may mean you will be unable to use all of the functions on our website.

  4. Other functions and offers on our website

    (1) In addition to our website being used purely as a source of information, we offer a variety of services that may be of interest to you. To make use of these, you typically will need to provide additional personal data which we use to provide the service in question and for which the aforementioned data processing principles apply.

    (2) When you contact the service provider by e-mail or via the contact form, your e-mail address, name and, if furnished, your phone number will be stored by us in order to answer your questions.

  5. Right to object or withdraw consent to the processing of your data

    (1) If you have previously consented to your data being processed, you may withdraw such consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent will affect the lawfulness of the processing of your personal data once you have notified us of such withdrawal.

    (2) To the extent that our processing of your personal data is based on the weighing of interests, you have the right to object to the processing. This is the case if the processing is especially not required in order to fulfil a contract with you, which is demonstrated by us in the description of the functions below.

    If your objection is justified, we will review the situation and either cease or amend the processing of your data or furnish you with our compelling legitimate grounds for continuing to process the data.
