Privacy Policy

1. Data collection

As a user of our website, this privacy policy provides you with all the necessary information on how, to what extent and for what purpose we or third-party providers collect data from you and use it. We are committed to the confidentiality of your personal data and therefore work within the limits set by the legal requirements. We ensure a high level of security for particularly confidential data such as in payment transactions or with regard to your enquiries to us by using TLS encryption. However, we would like to take this opportunity to point out the general dangers of Internet use over which we have no control. Especially in email traffic, your data is not secure without further precautions and may be collected by third parties under certain circumstances.

2. Information, deletion, blocking

You have the right at any time to free information about the data stored about you and about the origin, recipient and purpose of the data collection and processing. You also have the right to correct, block and delete your data. Exempt from this is data that must be retained due to legal regulations or is required for proper business processing. If data is not subject to a legal obligation to retain it, we routinely delete your data when it is no longer required to fulfil or initiate a contract. If there is an archiving obligation, we will block your data. For all questions and concerns regarding the correction, blocking or deletion of personal data, please contact us at the contact details provided in this data protection declaration, at or at the address given in the imprint.

3. Cookies

We use cookies on our website. These small text files are stored on your PC from our server. This is necessary for the allocation of user data. We do not link this information to personal data and do not pass it on to third parties. Under no circumstances are cookies used by us to bring malware or spyware onto your computer. You can also use our website without the use of cookies, which may mean that some displays and functions of our offer are only available to a limited extent. If you wish to deactivate cookies, you can do so via special settings in your browser. Please use its help function to make the appropriate changes.

4. Provision of paid services

If you wish to use services offered on our website, we may need to collect further data from you for security reasons. This usually involves your name, a valid email address and, if applicable, your address and telephone number, as well as other information depending on the individual case. This may also involve content that allows us to verify the data provided, such as your ownership of the email address provided. For legal reasons, we must ensure that you actually want to receive the services offered and that we can properly invoice you for the service. We work with the TLS encryption standard to secure your data, recognisable by the browser line "https://".

5. Collection of access data

The delivery and presentation of content via our website technically requires the collection of certain data. When you access our website, these so-called server log files are recorded by us or the provider of the web space. These log files do not allow any conclusions to be drawn about you and your person. The corresponding information consists of the name of the website, the file, the current date, the amount of data, the web browser and its version, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet provider, the referrer URL as the page from which you accessed our site, and the corresponding IP address. We use this data for the presentation and delivery of our content as well as for statistical purposes. The information supports the provision and continuous improvement of our offer. We also reserve the right to subsequently check the data mentioned should there be any suspicion of illegal use of our offer.

6. Third-party content and services

The offer on our website may also include content, services and performances from other providers that complement our offer. Examples of such services are third-party graphics. Calling up these third-party services regularly requires the transmission of your IP address. This makes it possible for these providers to perceive your user IP address and also to store it. We make every effort to include only those third-party providers who use IP addresses solely for the purpose of delivering content. However, we have no influence on which third party provider stores the IP address. This storage may serve statistical purposes, for example. In this context, please also note the specific data protection declarations of individual third-party providers and service providers whose services we use on our website. You will also find them in this data protection declaration.

7. Personal data

In the context of data avoidance and data economy, we only collect personal data to the extent and for as long as it is necessary for the use of our website or as required by law. We take the protection of your personal data seriously and strictly adhere to the relevant legal regulations and this data protection declaration when collecting and processing personal data. If the purpose of the data collection ceases to apply or the end of the legal storage period is reached, the collected data will be blocked or deleted. Our website can be used without disclosing personal data. If we collect personal data - such as your name, address or e-mail address - this data collection is voluntary. This data will not be disclosed to third parties without your express consent. Please note that data on the Internet is generally not always transmitted securely. Especially in email traffic, the protection of data exchange cannot be guaranteed. Upon request, you will receive information about the data collected and stored about you at any time and free of charge.

8. Encryption

Our website uses TLS encryption. This encryption is active for any enquiries that you send to us via our website. The use of encryption is easy to recognise: The display in your browser line changes from "http://" to "https://". Data encrypted via TLS cannot be read by third parties. Only transmit your confidential information when TLS encryption is activated and contact us in case of doubt.

9. Duration of storage

The duration of the storage of personal data is determined on the basis of the respective legal basis, the purpose of processing and - if relevant - additionally on the basis of the respective statutory retention period (e.g. retention periods under commercial and tax law). Unless otherwise stated in the other information in this declaration on specific processing situations, stored personal data will otherwise be deleted when they are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
