Data collection and processing

All access to our website and every retrieval of a file stored on this website is logged. This data is stored for internal system-related and statistical purposes. The following data is logged: Name of the retrieved file, date and time of retrieval, amount of data transferred, notification of successful retrieval, web browser, and requesting domain. In addition, the IP addresses of the requesting computers are logged. Additional personal data is only collected if the website user and/or customer provides information voluntarily, e.g., as part of an inquiry or registration or to conclude a contract or via their browser settings.

Our website uses cookies. A cookie is a text file that is sent when a website is visited. It is temporarily stored on the hard drive of the website user and/or customer. If the relevant server of our website is called up again by the website user and/or customer, the browser of the website user and/or the customer sends the cookie previously received back to the server. The server can then evaluate the information obtained through this procedure in various ways. Cookies can be used, for example, to control advertising or to make navigation on a website easier. If the website user and/or customer wants to prevent the use of cookies, they can do so by making local changes to their settings in the web browser used on their computer, i.e., the program for opening and displaying websites (e.g., Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, or Safari).

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies, text files that are stored on your computer to enable your use of the website to be analyzed. The information generated by a cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google uses this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google. You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, please note that if you do so, you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent.

Use and transfer of personal data

If the user has submitted personal data on our website, we will only use that data to answer inquiries from the website user and/or customer, to process contracts concluded with the website user and/or customer, and for technical administration.

The website user and/or customer has the right to revoke their consent at any time with effect for the future.

The personal data stored will be deleted if the website user and/or customer revokes their consent to storage, if the data is no longer required to fulfill the purpose for which it was stored, or if the storage is not permitted for other legal reasons.
