The protection and security of personal information is of high priority to us. Therefore, we strictly adhere to the rules of the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz – BDSG). Below we outline what type of data we collect and for what purpose it is collected:
1. Data transmission/data logging
When visiting this page, the web server automatically records logs files that cannot be assigned to a specific person. This data includes, for instance, the browser type and version, the used operating system, the referrer URL (the previously visited page), the IP address of the requesting computer, the date and time of the server access request and the client’s file request (file name and URL). These data are collected solely for the purpose of statistical evaluation and will not be transferred to third parties, for commercial or non-commercial purposes.
2. Use of personal data
Personal data is only collected or processed if you provide this information voluntarily, e.g. in connection with a request. Unless there are necessary reasons relating to a business transaction, you may at any time and with immediate effect revoke your previously granted permission to store your personal data in writing (e.g. by e-mail or fax). Your data will not be disclosed to third parties, unless disclosure is required by law.
3. Information, modification and deletion of your data
In accordance with applicable law, you are welcome to ask us at any time in writing whether and which personal data we store about you. We will respond immediately with the appropriate information.
4. Data security
We will take all technical and organizational security measures to secure personal data made available to us against access from unauthorized third parties. When sending very sensitive data or information, it is recommended to use postal services, as complete data security cannot be guaranteed via e-mail.
