Our privacy policy

We are delighted that you are interested in our website. We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We will inform you about how we handle your personal data in detail in the following section.

Protecting your personal data is a matter of great importance to us. We identify with the principles of processing personal data specified in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR): transparency, lawfulness, purpose limitation, data accuracy and data minimisation are the standards we too set ourselves when handling your data. We attach great importance to justifying the trust you have placed in us in this matter as in all others. We therefore protect your personal data from unauthorised third-party access in particular.

The intensity with which your data is collected, processed and used depends on the manner in which you use our services. By visiting our website, you agree to us collecting, processing, using and storing certain pieces of your personal data as described below. It goes without saying that we treat your data confidentially.

I.    General information

1.   Collection, processing and use of personal data when visiting our website

You may visit our site without giving any information about yourself. We automatically store only access data without reference to individuals, as

  • the name of your service provider,
  • browser type/version,
  • screen resolution,
  • operating system,
  • type of mobile device,
  • websites visited,
  • length of visit at our website,
  • referrer URL (previously visited page),
  • host name of computer accessing the website (IP address),
  • date and time of the server request and
  • the location of your device.

We collect all this data for analytical purposes and evaluate it for the purpose of improving our service. No individual piece of data can of itself be connected with a specific person. The data in question primarily relates to technology. However, it may under certain circumstances be possible to trace this data to specific persons when it is linked with other data. We use the data collected in this way for statistical purposes, to assess the attractiveness of our offerings and to analyse user behaviour with the aim of improving and expanding our services, recognising errors and optimising workflows. Data is only linked insofar as this is necessary for the purposes defined. Art. 6 (1) Clause 1 f) GDPR is the legal basis.

The data we store is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the purposes mentioned here (duration of storage). The data is deleted once it no longer has to be stored for documentation purposes (for example, because statutory retention periods have not yet expired).

2.    Legal bases for data processing

Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR is the legal basis for data processing in cases where we have obtained your consent to the processing of your personal data.
Art. 6 (1) b) GDPR is the legal basis for data processing if we need to process your data in order to execute a contract or if your data has to be processed in the context of a quasi-contractual relationship.
Art. 6 (1) c) GDPR is the legal basis for data processing in cases where we are required to process your data in fulfilment of a statutory obligation.
Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR is considered to be the legal basis for data processing if your personal data has to be processed for the purposes of a legitimate interest pursued by our company or a third party and your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms do not require your personal data to be protected.
In this data protection declaration, we invariably refer to the legal basis on which the processing of your personal data rests.
