Privacy Policy

As a user of our Website, you can find all necessary information about how, to what extent, and why we or third parties will acquire and use information about you. We strictly follow the policies of the Datenschutz-Grundverordnung (DS-GVO, the German version of the GDPR) and the Telemediengesetz (TMG). We are strongly committed to protecting the confidentiality of your personal data and therefore strictly adhere to the rules and guidelines put forth in the regulations. Wherever possible, we try to only collect personal data with your consent. We only pass on your personal data to third parties with your explicit consent. For especially sensitive information, such as information involved in payments, or requests you send to us, we employ SSL encryption to ensure safety. Of course, there are risk factors beyond our control that are inherent to general usage of the internet. Especially when using E-Mail messages, data you send is not safe from being read by third parties unless special measures are employed.

Right of Access, Right to Erasure

At any time, and at no cost, you can request information about the personal data we store about you, as well as the source, recipient, and motivation for collection and processing of said data. Additionally, you have the right to correct, to restrict the processing of, or to delete your personal information. Data we are required by law to keep, or which are necessary for conducting our business are exempt from deletion or restriction. In order to make restriction of data processing possible, data will be kept in a separate file. If personal information is not required by law to be archived by law, we will delete it on your request. If personal information is required by law, we restrict its processing and usage instead. In order to make use of your rights to access or erasure, please contact the Data Protection Officer named in this document or the imprint.

Cookies

Our website employs cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer by our server. They are used to improve display of our website, and help you navigate our website. Cookies record data about your IP Address, the Browser you use, your Operating System, and your Internet Connection. We do not combine this information with personal data, nor do we pass it on to third parties. Under no circumstances do we use cookies to install malicious software or spyware on your computer. You can use our website without cookies, which can limit the usability or display of certain parts of our website. A setting in your browser makes it possible to deactivate cookies on our website. Please consult your Browser’s help function to find out how. Cookies from advertisers can be managed at the following sites:  http://www.aboutads.info/choices for the USA and http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices for Europe.

Collection of Access Data

Serving and displaying content through our website necessitates recording certain pieces of information. Your access to our website we or our web hoster will be recorded in so-called log files.  Data in these log files cannot be used to personally identify you. The information recorded to the log files consists of the name of the website, the file, the current date and time, the amount of data transmitted, what browser and which version was used, the IP Address, and the referrer URL, which is the website you switched to our website from. We use this data for delivery and display of our website and for statistics. This data helps us offer and continually improve our service. We reserve the right to retroactively check this data if illegal use of our service is suspected.

Personal Data

We only collect Personal Data to the extent necessary, and only as long as they are needed for you to use our website, and as long as the law requires it. We take the protection of your personal data seriously and strictly adhere to the law and this privacy policy for collecting and processing data. When the reason for collection no longer applies, or the retention time required by law has passed, the collected data will be deleted or restricted from processing. Our website can be used without personal data being collected. We collect personal data such as your name, address or e-mail address purely on the basis of your consent. Without explicit consent from you, your data will not be passed on to third parties. Please be aware that data on the internet cannot always be securely transmitted, especially when it comes to E-Mail.

SSL Encryption

When transmitting sensitive, or personal data, our website uses SSL encryption. It will be activated for example when transmitting information related to payment, or when you send a request to us. Please make sure that SSL encryption is not deactivated on your end during such activities. Whether the encryption is active can easily be checked by looking at the address in your browser. If it starts with “https://” rather than “http://”, encryption is active. Data transferred via SSL is not readable by third parties. Only send personal information while SSL encryption is active, and contact us in case of questions or problems.

Usage of Script Libraries

In order to display our content properly regardless of which browser is used, this website uses script libraries and web fonts, for example Google Webfonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/). Google webfonts are cached locally into the cache of your browser so it doesn’t have to be downloaded multiple times. If your browser does not support Webfonts, or access to the host serving the Webfont is blocked, the browser will fall back to using a standard font. Invoking script libraries or webfonts from a third party will automatically open a connection to the provider. In theory, it is possible – though currently unclear if and for what purpose – for the third party to collect data. The Privacy Policy of script library provider Google can be found at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

Objection to Advertisement Mail

In accordance with the requirement of an imprint we publish our contact data. Third parties may use these to send unwanted information and advertisements. We explicitly object to all transfer of advertisement material of any kind without prior explicit consent from us. We reserve the right to take legal action against unwanted transmission of advertisement material. This includes Spam Mails, Spam Letters and Spam Faxes. Unauthorized transmission of advertisement material can fall under competition law, private law, and criminal law. Especially Spam Mail and Spam Faxes can lead to high compensation claims if they interrupt business operations by filling up mailboxes and making fax devices unavailable.

The cookies generate information sent to Google’s servers. These servers are mostly located in the USA, but Google adheres to the EU-US Privacy Shield as well as the Swiss-US Privacy Shield. Your IP-Address is abbreviated before being transmitted to the USA. Google evaluates the transmitted information and offers additional services for us. The transmitted IP addresses are kept separate from other Google services. A setting in your browser allows you to disable the usage of cookies (see section about Cookies earlier in this document). Google also offers a browser extension that prevents the usage and collection of these cookies and related data. It can be downloaded from  https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
