The nature, scope and purpose of the collection and usage of personal data are explained below. 

COLLECTION AND PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA

According to § 3 (1) of the BDSG, personal data are defined as individual pieces of information that concern the personal and material circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person. We record every visit to our website and every access made to contents stored on the website. Information is saved solely for internal system-related and statistical purposes. We record the following: the name of the contents retrieved (file), the date and time of the file access, the volume of data transferred, notification of successful data retrieval, the web browser used and the requesting domain. The IP address of the computer making the request is also recorded. Further personal data are only recorded if the website user enters them voluntarily using the browser settings, e.g. in order to make an enquiry, to register, or to complete a contract or suchlike. 

Please note that cookies are used on our website. A cookie is a text file that is sent when a website is visited and temporarily stored on the website user’s hard drive. If the website user calls up our website server again, the user’s browser sends the previously received cookie back to the server. The information thus received can be analysed in several ways by the server. Cookies can make it easier to navigate an internet site, for example, or keep advertising banners under control. If the website user wishes, cookies can be blocked by adjusting the browser settings on the computer.

USE AND DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL DATA

Personal data provided by our website users will only be used for the purposes of answering users’ enquiries, carrying out contracts entered into with website users, and for technical administration. Personal data will only be transmitted or otherwise communicated to third parties if this is necessary in order to carry out contracts or for invoicing purposes, or if the website user has already given consent. The website user is entitled to withdraw consent at any time with effect for the future. 

Stored personal data will be deleted if the website user withdraws the consent to save data, if the personal data is no longer required for the purpose for which it was saved, or if saving the data is prohibited for other legal reasons.
