1. Basics

These data protection regulations are based on the legal regulations of the DSGVO (Data Protection Basic Ordinance) which will become definitively effective as of 25 May 2018.

The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.

The use of our website is in principle possible without providing personal data. As far as personal data (e.g. surname, first name, telephone, address or e-mail addresses) is collected on our pages, this is, as far as possible, always on a voluntary basis. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

We would like to point out that despite all our measures taken, data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) may be subject to security gaps and therefore complete protection of data from access by third parties is not guaranteed in every case.

The most frequently used cookies are so-called “session cookies”, which have a limited lifetime. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them.

3. Server log-files

The hosting provider of this website automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits.

These are in particular:

  • browser type and browser version used
  • operating system- referrer

  • host name of the accessing computer
  • time of the server request

These data cannot be assigned to specific persons. These data are not combined with other data sources. We reserve the right to check these data subsequently if we become aware of concrete indications of an illegal use.

This data collection serves primarily to evaluate and prevent attempts to attack the website. Hosting providers are also legally obliged in certain situations to be able to provide information from where access was made in order to counter criminal activities.

4. SSL-Encryptions

To protect the transmission of confidential data via our forms and for security reasons, we use SSL encryption as technology. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the address line “https://” and the lock symbol displayed in the browser. Data encrypted by SSL cannot be read by third parties during transmission.
