The protection of personal data is very important to us. We follow the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Bundesdatenschutzgesetzes (BDSG) (neu). Below we inform you about which data is collected and for which reason those data are used:

1. Data transfer / data logging

Those files contain data such as browser-type, browser-version, operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited website), IP-address, accessing date, accessing time or file requests of the client (filename and URL), without assigning this data to a person. Those data are only logged for statistical purposes. A passing on to third parties does not take place.

2. Use of personal data

Personal data are only collected and processed if you provide them voluntarily. As long as those data are not required for a business process, for example if you ask for further information, you may revoke your previously granted permission in written from (e-mail or fax) with immediate effect at any time. A passing on to third parties does not take place unless it is made compulsory by law.
