When visiting our website, a cookie will automatically collect general information. This information (server log files) for example include the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider, and similar. These are only information which do not allow you to be identified.

  • for additional administrative purposes.

The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest in the above purposes of data collection. Your data will not be used to identify you. This data will only be received by the controller and, where necessary, the processor.

Anonymous information of this type may be statistically analysed by us to optimise our internet presence and the technology used.

Cookies

Like many other websites we also use so-called 'cookies'. Cookies are small text files transferred from a website server to your hard drive. It automatically provides us with specific data such as IP address, browser and operating system used, and your internet connection.

Cookies cannot be used to launch programs or transmit viruses to a computer. The information from cookies allows us to make our website easier for you to navigate and display our website correctly.

The data collected by us will never be shared with third parties or merged with personal information without your consent.

Of course you can on principle also view our website without cookies. Internet browsers are typically configured to accept cookies. Generally speaking you can disable the use of cookies at any time by changing your browser settings. Please use the help function of your internet browser to learn how to change these settings. Please note that blocking cookies may prevent some functions of our website from working.

Contact form

When contacting us with any requests by e-mail or using the contact form, you voluntarily consent for contact purposes. This requires providing a valid e-mail address. This is used to allocate the enquiry and to process said. Any other data is optional. The information provided by you will be stored to process your enquiry and for any follow-up questions. Once your enquiry has been completed the personal data is automatically deleted.

Use of script libraries (Google Fonts)

This website uses script libraries and font libraries such as Google Fonts to ensure our contents are displayed correctly across browsers and make them visually appealing. Google Fonts are transferred to your browser cache to avoid downloading them repeatedly. If your browser does not support Google Fonts or prevents access, contents will be displayed in a default font.

Accessing script libraries or font libraries automatically establishes a connection to the provider of the library. In the process it is theoretically possible – although currently also unclear if and for which purpose – providers of these libraries collect data.

For the privacy policy of the library provider, Google, please visit: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

Changes to our privacy policy

We reserve the right to change this privacy policy to ensure it always complies with current legal requirements or to apply changes in our services to our privacy policy, e.g. when introducing new services. The new privacy policy will then apply when you return to our website.
