Recording, saving and processing usage data

Every access to this website and each retrieval of a file stored on this site is logged. We log data such as the date and time of the page access, the data volume transmitted, the web browser, IP address and the like. The data is stored for internal, system-related and statistical purposes, and in order to optimise this website. Any personal data is only recorded if the user/customer of the website provides the data voluntarily in the course of an enquiry or during registration.

The recorded data is not used for commercial purposes. Data is collected and saved exclusively in anonymised or pseudonymised form, without identifying the user of the website in person. No conclusions can be drawn relating to you as a natural person.

The analysis of the data is implemented for statistical purposes only, and to improve this website. After the data has been used for this purpose it is deleted and not stored permanently. You can at any time refuse your consent to the recording, saving and processing of your data.


Cookies for the recording and saving of data

This website uses cookies. Cookies are text files which are registered on the user's device when he or she visits a website. Cookies do not cause any damage, because they do not contain a virus and do not enable us to spy on you. There are two types of cookie: temporary cookies are deleted as soon as you close your browser (session cookies), whereas non-temporary cookies have a longer duration. If the relevant server is once more accessed by the user, he or she is recognised by our website. The browser returns the previously received cookie, which evaluates the information received in a number of ways. For example, it makes it possible for us to manage advertising pop-ups or to facilitate the navigation of a website. Data is collected in anonymised or pseudonymised form. You can set your Internet browser in such a way that the use of cookies is prevented, or existing cookies are deleted.


Use and transfer of personal data

If users provide us with personal data this is used exclusively in order to respond to an enquiry. The data is used only by us, and is not transferred to third parties. Any transfer to third parties is only implemented if this is necessary to implement the contract or for billing purposes, or if the user has previously provided his or her consent. Users have the right to withdraw their consent at any time with respect to the future.

Data is deleted if the user of this website withdraws his or her consent to its storage, is no longer required for the purpose involved, or if such data storage is prohibited for legal reasons. If users require the deletion of their personal data, this does not affect data for billing and accounting purposes.

You have the possibility of getting in touch with us by email, telephone or using a contact form. If this is the case, the information provided by the user is applied for the purpose of processing the contact data. Data is not passed on to third parties. The data is not compared against any data which may already have been recorded on our website.

If you wish to receive information about the stored data, you have the right to do so at any time. You can request us to provide you with information about this at any time, and will receive such information via the address indicated in the legal notice below. If you wish to have your data deleted, corrected or blocked, please contact us without delay. You can also, without providing any reason for this, withdraw your consent to the recording and use of your data at any time. 


Analytical services

This website uses Google Analytics, a website analysis service provided by Google Inc. (‘Google’). Google Analytics uses so-called ‘cookies’, text files which are saved on your computer and enable you to analyse the use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is as a rule transferred to a Google server in the USA and saved there. If IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address is previously truncated by Google within the member states of the European Union and other states which are members of the agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the complete IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website Google will use this information in order to evaluate your use of this website for the purpose of compiling reports on website activities, and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with the use of the website and the Internet. The IP address transmitted by Google Analytics from your browser is not combined with other data by Google.

You can prevent the saving of cookies by making the relevant setting in your browser software, but we must point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. In addition you can prevent the data generated by the cookie in relation to your use of the website (including your IP address) being transmitted to Google and processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in which is available under the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).

You can prevent the recording of data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set and then prevents the future recording of your data when you visit this website.

Deactivating Google Analytics

For more information about the terms of use and data protection please see www.google.com/analytics/terms/gb.html or https://www.google.de/intl/en/policies/. We wish to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been supplemented by the code ‘anonymizeIp’, in order to ensure the anonymised recording of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).

In addition we use Google Analytics to evaluate data from AdWords and the Double-Click cookie for statistical purposes. If you do not agree to this, you can deactivate this function via the ad specifications manager (http://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/?hl=en).
