Privacy policy for your visit at our website

​Thank you for visiting our website and expressing an interest in our company and our services. Data protection is based on trust and your trust is important to us. We are committed to respecting your privacy. We therefore attach great importance to the protection of your personal data and ensuring that it is collected, processed and used in line with legal provisions.

In order to ensure you feel secure visiting our website, we are careful to ensure strict adherence to statutory provisions when we process your personal data and would like to explain how we collect and use your personal data. We will also explain how we collect and use non-personal but relevant usage data.

We would like to expressly point out that the transmission of data via the Internet (e.g., by e-mail) can offer security vulnerabilities. It is therefore impossible to safeguard the data completely against access by third parties. We cannot assume any liability for damages arising as a result of such security vulnerabilities. The use by third parties of all published contact details for the purpose of advertising is expressly excluded. We reserve the right to take legal steps in the case of the unsolicited sending of advertising information; e.g., by means of spam mail.

We have instructed and bound our employees to keep your information confidential, pursuant to the privacy protection provisions under the GDPR and BDSG.

We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can be subject to security vulnerabilities. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.

Provision of the website and creation of log files

You can visit our website without entering any other personal data or otherwise transmitting any personal data except for your IP address. If you disclose personal data to us yourself, only then will we collect and save it throughout your visit to the pages of our website.

When you visit our website, the browser on your device automatically sends information – so called usage data – to the server on our website. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. The following information is recorded without your intervention and stored until it is automatically deleted:

The mentioned data will be processed by us for the following purposes:

If we collect personal data (e.g. name, company, position, e-mail addresses, telephone numbers), this is done on a voluntary basis. The data will be processed for the purpose of contacting us in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO on the basis of your voluntary consent. Under no circumstances do we use the collected data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person.

The data will be stored until it is necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. If data is required to make the website available, it is not required once the respective session has ended. Your data will then be deleted automatically. If the data is stored in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. If the aforementioned data is further stored, your IP address will be deleted or alienated in this case, so that it is no longer possible to assign the calling Internet connection.

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website.

Further personal data is only stored by us when you use our website if you provide it to us yourself, e.g. via our contact form or an e-mail sent to us by you. We do not collect any personal data via our websites without your consent. An exception is the IP address of the requesting computer (see above).

Contact form

If you send us inquiries using the contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.

The processing of the data entered in the contact form takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can withdraw this consent at any time. All you need to do is send an informal email to us. The legality of the data processing operations carried out before the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions – especially retention periods – remain unaffected.

Google Analytics

Our Website uses Google Analytics, a Web analysis service of Google Inc. (aka “Google”, , 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, which uses cookies that are small files maintained on your computer for analyzing your visit.

The information collected by the cookie about your visit to this Website (including browser type/ version, operating system, referrer URL, IP address) is transmitted to and kept on a Google server located in the United States of America.

Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to Google servers in the US and then shortened. Such a short form IP address precludes the possibility of identifying the person visiting the site. Google uses this information to analyze usage of the Website by you and generate reports of your Web activities under contract to the Website provider. These reports allow the provider to improve the quality of its online service and your experience. Google never correlates your IP address obtained via Google Analytics with other data obtained by Google.
