Collection, processing and use of personal data

Personal data

Personal data are such data, which can lead to the identification of a person. In addition to the classic data, such as name, address, telephone number or e-mail address, this also includes IP addresses.


Standard data

We do not collect any personal data in the case of the mere informative use of our website, except for the data transmitted by your browser to enable you to visit the website. These are: the address of your internet service provider such as the IP address or URL, the name of the website from which you visited us, the websites you retrieve from our site, browser type, operating system as well as date and duration of your visit. The information collected is only processed internally and is not passed on to third parties.

Also no personal user profiles are created. The collection and processing of these data is carried out for the purpose of providing the website, for ensuring system security for the technical administration of the network infrastructure as well as for general statistical evaluation. The data are regularly deleted.

A personal analysis of your data will not take place.

Such information is used by us solely for the purpose and in compliance with the applicable legal provisions; any other use is only with your consent.

If you contact us via the contact details given in the legal notice, processing of personal data is also carried out. In this case we will save your personal data, such as your name and e-mail address for further correspondence with you.

We will not pass on or transmit any personal data to third parties unless this is necessary for the purpose of processing the contract or you have previously consented to the transmission of this data. You have the right to revoke your consent with effect for the future at any time.

We, however, wish to point out that e-mails with unencrypted content can be read by unauthorized third parties. We have no influence on the risks of transmission by e-mail.

Registration will not take effect until you click on the activation link contained in the confirmation e-mail. We will only use the data you send us for the purpose of sending you the newsletter, which may contain information or offers.

We use rapidmail to send our newsletter. Your data will therefore be sent to rapidmail GmbH. As part of this arrangement, rapidmail GmbH is forbidden from using your data for any purpose other than sending the newsletter. rapidmail GmbH is not permitted to transfer or sell your data. rapidmail is a certified, German newsletter software provider, which has been chosen with care, taking into account the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation and the Federal Data Protection Act.

You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data and its use for newsletter dispatch at any time, e.g. via the unsubscribe link in the newsletter.


Use of Facebook plugins

These internet pages use plugins from the social network operated by Facebook Inc. 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook").

If you access our website from web pages which have such a plugin, this creates a link to the Facebook servers and the plugin is shown on the web page by a message to your browser. This tells the Facebook server which of our web pages you have visited. If you are logged in as a member of Facebook at the same time, Facebook will allocate this information to your personal Facebook user account. When using the plugin functions (e.g. clicking on the "like" button, making a comment), this information is also assigned to your Facebook account; you can only prevent this from happening by logging out before using the plugin.

If you do not want Facebook to log the collected information directly to your Facebook profile, you must either log out of Facebook before you visit our site or use an add-on for your browser provided by Facebook: This will block the loading of the Facebook plugins.

You will find more detailed information on the collection and use of data by Facebook and on your rights to protect your privacy in this regard in Facebook’s data protection policy.
