Information on data protection
Compliance with legal regulations concerning protection of personal data is something we always do as a matter of course. In accordance with the Datenschutzgesetz (Data Protection Act) (DSG 2000) personal data is information that can be used to discover the identity of web users. This includes information such as a name, address, postal address, telephone number etc. Therefore, all information that cannot directly be connected with the actual identity of the user does not fall within this category.
When you visit this website we do not collect any personal data without your voluntary agreement. However, data arises automatically which is stored in a log file on our server via cookies and then analysed anonymously for statistical purposes.
Where necessary and insofar as you use a personalised, interactive or mail service on our website, we record your personal information. We use this personal data only within our company. This data is not disclosed to third parties unless this is necessary for fulfilment of a contract or we are required to do so by law.
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as enquiries you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL encryption. An encrypted connection can be recognised by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties
Our website uses so-called cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your end device with the help of the browser. They do no harm.
If you do not want this, your browser can be set up to inform you about cookies and you only allow them in individual cases.
If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of our website may be restricted.
Use of Google Analytics
Due to our legitimate interests in optimizing and analyzing our online offer as defined by Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. f. GDPR, this website uses the "Google Analytics" service, which is provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). The service (Google Analytics) uses "cookies" - text files that are stored on your device. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
IP anonymization applies on this website. The IP address of the user is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area and in the other contracting states of the agreement. Only in individual cases will the IP address first be transmitted unabridged to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. This shortening eliminates the personal reference to your IP address. The user's IP address transmitted by the browser is not combined with other data stored by Google.
As part of the order data agreement, which we as the website operator have closed with Google Inc., the information collected is used to evaluate website usage and website activity and provide services related to internet usage. The data collected by Google on our behalf is used to evaluate the use of our online offering by individual users, e.g. to create reports on the activity on the website in order to improve our online offer.
You have the option of preventing the storage of cookies on your device by changing the appropriate settings in your browser. There is no guarantee that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions if your browser does not accept cookies.
A browser plug-in can also be used to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being sent to Google Inc. and used by Google Inc. The following link takes you to the corresponding plugin: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB
Alternatively, by clicking on this link (IMPORTANT: insert opt-out link) you prevent Google Analytics from collecting data about you within this website. By clicking on the link above, download an "opt-out cookie". Your browser must therefore always allow the storage of cookies. If you delete your cookies regularly, you will need to click the link again each time you visit this website.
