We process personal data concerning our users exclusively to the extent required to provide a functioning website, as well as our content and services. Ordinarily, we will only process the personal data of our users after obtaining their consent. An exception to this rule is where obtaining prior consent is factually impossible and the processing of the data is permitted by law.
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. In addition, storage takes place if authorised by Union or Member State directives, laws or other regulations to which the controller is subject. Blocking or deletion of the data shall also take place when a storage period stipulated by one of the above standards comes to an end, except where it is necessary to continue storing the data to enter into or perform a contract.
Our system automatically collects data and information from the accessing computer system each time our website is visited. The following data is collected in this context:
The data is also stored in log files kept on our system. This data is not stored together with other personal data concerning the user.
The legal grounds for temporary storage of the data and log files are set out in Art. 6, paragraph 1, part (f) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Temporary storage of the IP address by our system is necessary to deliver the website to the computer of the user. For this purpose, the user’s IP address must be stored for the duration of the session.
Storage in log files takes place to ensure functionality of the website. In addition, the data is used to optimise the website and to ensure security of our Information Technology systems. Data analysis for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of data stored in log files, this occurs after no longer than seven days. Further storage is possible; in these cases, the users’ IP addresses are deleted or pseudonymised to prevent any association with the accessing client.
The collection of data for the provision of our website and the storage of data in log files is crucial to operation of the website. Hence, users are not granted a right to object.
We use technically necessary cookies to improve our website’s user friendliness. Some elements on our website make it necessary to recognise the accessing browser when moving from page to page.
The legal grounds for the processing of personal data using technically necessary cookies are set out in Art. 6, paragraph 1, part (f) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The data subject can adjust the settings of the Internet browser at any time to prevent our website from placing cookies as described, and therefore block cookies on a permanent basis. In addition, the browser or other software programs can be used to delete cookies that have already been placed at any time. The data subject may not be able to use the full functionality of our website if cookies are disabled in the active Internet browser. You can change the settings of your Internet browser to disable or restrict the transfer of cookies at any time. Cookies that have already been placed on your computer can be deleted at any time. This can take place automatically. Disabling cookies may prevent you from using the full functionality of our website.

The user’s email address is collected in order to deliver the newsletter.
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was collected. Therefore, the user’s email address will be stored for as long as the newsletter subscription remains active.
The data subject can unsubscribe to the newsletter at any time. Each newsletter includes a suitable link.
Our website includes a contact form that can be used to make contact with us by electronic means. Where a data subject uses this option, the data entered in the input screen will be transferred to us and stored. This applies to the following data:
The following data is stored additionally when sending a message:
Your consent for data processing will be obtained, and you will be referred to this Privacy Notice during the sending process. The data is not transferred to third parties in this context. The data is used exclusively for processing the correspondence.
The legal basis for processing of the data in the event that consent has been received from the user is set out in Art. 6, paragraph 1, part (a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
We use the personal data you provide in the contact form exclusively to process your enquiry. In the case of contact by email, this represents our necessary, legitimate interest in data processing. Any other personal data that is processed when you send us the contact form is used to prevent abuse of the contact form and to protect the security of our Information Technology systems.
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was collected. For personal data entered in the input screen of the contact form and personal data sent to us by email, this is the case when correspondence with the user has come to an end. The data will be deleted after a maximum of two years.
The user is entitled to revoke their consent to the processing of personal data at any time. The user may object to the processing of personal data at any time. Correspondence will be discontinued in these cases. All personal data stored in connection with contacting us will be deleted in this case.
We use the open source software tool Matomo (formerly PIWIK) on our website to analyse the browsing behaviour of our users. The software is configured to “cookieless tracking” and no persistent cookies are set by Matomo.
The following data will be saved if individual pages are visited on our website:
The software hereby runs exclusively on the servers for our website. The data is only stored there. This data will not be forwarded to third parties.
The legal basis for processing the user’s personal data is point (f) of Art. 6 (1) of the GDPR.
Processing the user’s personal data allows us to analyse the browsing behaviour of our users. By analysing the collected data we are able to compile information about how individual components of our website are being used. This helps us to constantly improve our website and its usability. Profiling does not take place. These purposes justify our legitimate interests in processing data pursuant to point (f) Art. 6 (1) of the GDPR. The anonymisation of the IP address takes due account of the user’s interest in the protection of their personal data.
The software has been configured so that the IP addresses are not stored completely. Two bytes of the IP address are masked (e.g.: 192.168.xxx.xxx). In this way, the shortened IP address can no longer be assigned to the accessing computer.
We offer users of our website an opt-out option for the analysis procedure. To opt out, follow the link and deactivate the web analysis. As a result, an opt-out cookie will be placed on your system that tells our system not to save the user’s data. If the user temporarily deletes the corresponding cookie from their own system, they have to reset the opt-out cookie.

You have the right to request from the controller restriction of processing of personal data concerning you under the following conditions:
Where processing of the personal data concerning you has been restricted, such personal data shall, with the exception of storage, only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or of a Member State.
Where you have obtained restriction of processing under the conditions set out above, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction of processing is lifted.
You have the right to request the controller to delete personal data concerning you without undue delay, and the controller will be obliged to delete personal data immediately where one of the following grounds applies:
Where the controller has made the personal data concerning you public and is obliged pursuant to Art. 17, paragraph 1 of the GDPR to delete the personal data, the controller, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, is required to take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform controllers who are processing the personal data that you have requested to be deleted by such controllers, as well as any links to, copies or replications of such personal data.
The right to deletion does not apply to the extent that processing is necessary:
Where you have exercised the right to correction, deletion or restriction of processing with the data controller, the data controller shall be obliged to notify all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you was disclosed of this correction or deletion of data or of the restriction of processing, except where compliance proves to be impossible or is associated with a disproportionate effort.
In addition, you are entitled to require that the data controller inform you about these recipients.

You have the right to withdraw your consent to the processing of data at any time, with future effect. In the event that you withdraw consent, we will delete the data concerned immediately, except where processing can be based on legal grounds that do not require consent. The withdrawal of consent will not affect the lawfulness of processing carried out prior to withdrawal of consent.
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your normal residence, you place of work or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you infringes the GDPR.
