The responsible body as defined by current data privacy laws is:
Collection of general information
When you access our website, information of general nature is automatically collected. This information (server log files) contains, e.g., the type of web browser, the used operating system, the domain name of your internet service provider and similar. None of this information can be used to identify you. This information is necessary from a technical standpoint to correctly provide you with the requested website content and is automatically generated whenever you use the internet. Anonymous information of this type is used by us for statistical purposes to optimise our online presence and the underlying technology.
Like many other websites, we also use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. This automatically provides us with certain data, such as IP address, used browser, your computer’s operating system and your connection to the internet.
Cookies cannot be used to start programs or transfer viruses to a computer. Using the information contained in the cookies, we can simplify navigation for you and ensure that our web pages display properly.
Under no circumstances is the data collected by us passed on to third parties or is a link to personal data established without your consent.
To protect the security of your data during transfer, we use the latest encryption method (e.g., SSL) via HTTPS.
The data you provide when registering for our newsletter is used exclusively for this purpose. Under certain circumstances, subscribers may receive via e-mail information relevant to the service or registration (for example, changes to the newsletter offer or technical conditions).
A valid e-mail address is necessary for successful registration. To check whether a registration is actually performed by the owner of an e-mail address, we use the “double-opt-in” process. For this purpose, we maintain a log for the ordering of the newsletter, the sending of a confirmation e-mail and the receipt of the response requested in the confirmation e-mail. No further data is collected. The data is used exclusively for the sending of the newsletter and is not passed on to third parties.
You may revoke consent for the storage of your personal data and its use for the sending of the newsletter at any time. You will find a corresponding link in every newsletter. Furthermore, you can also unsubscribe directly on this website or, if desired, inform us of your wish using the contact information provided at the end of the data privacy notice.
If you contact us via e-mail or with the contact form, the details you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing your inquiry as well as for possible follow-up questions.
Deletion or blocking of the data
We comply with the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore store your personal data only as long as is necessary for achieving the purposes mentioned here or as stipulated by the various storage periods provided for by lawmakers. Should the purpose no longer exist or after these periods have elapsed, the corresponding data is routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the legal regulations.
Your rights for information, correction, blocking, deletion and revocation
You are entitled to obtain information about your personal data stored by us at any time. You also have the right to have your personal data corrected, blocked or, with the exception of the data storage required for business processing, deleted. Please contact our data protection officer for further information. You can find the contact information at the very bottom.
So that allowance can be made for the blocking of data at any time, this data must be retained in a block file for control purposes. You may also demand the deletion of the data, provided there is no legal archiving obligation. If such an obligation exists, we will block your data on request.
You may make changes or revoke consent by way of a corresponding message with effect for the future.
Right to file a complaint with the responsible supervisory authority
In the event of violations pertaining to data privacy, the affected individual has the right to file a complaint with the responsible supervisory authority. The responsible supervisory authority pertaining to data privacy issues is the data protection commissioner of the federal state in which our company is headquartered. You can find a list of the data protection commissioners as well as their contact data in the following link:
