The delivery and presentation of content via our website technically requires the collection of certain data.

The corresponding information consists of the

  • the current date 
  • the web browser and its version 
  • the operating system used 
  • the referrer URL as the page from which you switched to our site, 
  • and the corresponding IP address. We use this data in anonymised form to display and deliver our content and for statistical purposes. 
The information supports the provision and continuous improvement of our offer and is stored separately from other personal information on secure systems. We reserve the right to check the aforementioned data retrospectively if there is any suspicion of unlawful use of our website.

Your personal data is processed for the following purposes:

We process personal data in the context of data avoidance and data minimisation only to the extent and for as long as is necessary for the use of our website or as required by law. 
If the purpose or legal basis for the data processing no longer applies and the end of the statutory retention period has been reached, the data collected will be deleted or blocked if the statutory retention period still applies. Your personal data will not be disclosed to third parties without your express consent or a legal basis. 
The data collected will not be used for automated case-by-case decisions, profiling or scoring. 

 6. Your rights as a data subject 

You can obtain information free of charge at any time (Art. 15 EU GDPR) about the personal data we have stored about you as well as the origin, recipient and purpose of the data processing. You also have the right to request the rectification (Art. 16 EU GDPR), blocking (Art. 18 EU GDPR) or erasure (Art. 17 EU GDPR) of your data. This does not apply to data that is stored due to legal regulations or is required for proper business processing.

 13. SSL encryption 

Our website uses SSL encryption when it comes to the transmission of confidential or personal content of our users. This encryption is activated, for example, when processing payment transactions and for enquiries that you send to us via our website. Please make sure that SSL encryption is activated on your side for corresponding activities. The use of encryption is easy to recognise: The display in your browser line changes from "http://" to "https://". Data encrypted via SSL cannot be read by third parties. Only transmit your confidential information if SSL encryption is activated and contact us if in doubt. 

14. Content and services from third-party providers 

The offer on our website may also include content, services and benefits from other providers that complement our offer. Examples of such offers are maps from Google Maps, YouTube videos or third-party graphics. Accessing these third-party services regularly requires the transmission of your IP address. This enables these providers to recognise your user IP address and store it. We make every effort to include only those third-party providers who use IP addresses solely for the delivery of content. However, we have no influence on which third-party provider may store the IP address. This storage may be used for statistical purposes, for example. If we become aware of storage processes by third-party providers, we will inform our users of this fact immediately. In this context, please also note the special data protection declarations for individual third-party providers and service providers whose services we use on our website.
