Your data is safe with us
We treat your personal data responsibly, taking into account all relevant provisions of the applicable data protection law.
Use of personal data
We only collect, use and transfer your personal data to third parties if this is permitted by law or if your consent to the collection of data is given.
Personal data means any information that can be used to identify your person and which can be traced back to you – such as your name, e-mail address and telephone number.
We process and store personal data only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is stipulated by the European legislator or other legislators by law or regulation to which the controller (responsible for the data protection) is subject to.
If the storage purpose is not applicable, or if a storage period prescribed by the European legislator or another competent legislator expires, personal data is routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with legal requirements.
We may share your information with other companies in our group to provide certain services. Group companies may be located in countries that do not ensure an equivalent level of data protection. We guarantee appropriate data protection through contractual agreements with the Group companies. You expressly consent to such data transfers.
Collection of General Data and Information
Our websites collect a series of general data and information when the website is called up. This general data and information is stored within the server log files. The following information may be collected: (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites which are reached via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website as well as its advertisement, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the necessary information for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. We therefore analyze the collected data for the purpose of statistics and with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security in our company in order to ensure the best possible level of data protection and data security for the personal data we process.
On our website we use the web analytics service Google Analytics to analyse visitor statistics.
Google Analytics uses „cookies“. Cookies are text files that are stored on your computer system and allows us to analyse the use of our website. For this purpose, the usage information generated by the cookie (including your shortened IP address) will be transmitted to our server and stored for analysis purposes, which we use to optimize our website. Your IP address will be immediately anonymized during that process so that you remain anonymous to us as a user. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website will not be disclosed to third parties.
By using our website you consent to the data processing by Google Analytics to the extent described above and for the purpose stated above.
Data Security / Secure Data Transmission
Through technical and organizational measures, we secure our IT systems against unintentional admittance, access, transfer, entry, loss and distribution as well as destruction and alteration by unauthorized persons.
The data transmission of personal data on our websites is protected according to up-to-date technical standards.
Handling of Contact Information
If you contact us via the contact options offered, your contact details will be stored so that they can be used to process and answer your request. Without your consent, this data will not be disclosed to third parties.
Upon request, you will receive free information as to whether personal data has been processed about you and, if so, what personal data has been stored about you.
If your request is not in conflict with a legal duty to retain data (e.g. data retention), you have the right to have corrected incorrect data and to have deleted your personal data (for the future).
You can object to the processing of your data at any time. We will no longer process your personal data in the event of an objection, unless we can demonstrate that compelling legitimate interests override your interests, rights and freedoms or if the processing of the data is intended for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
You have the right to withdraw your consent to data processings – for the future – at any time without giving a reason.
