Below, you will find information about the data which are collected during your visit to the homepage and how they are used. Please consider that data transmission in the internet (e.g. in communication by e-mail) can manifest gaps in safety as a matter of principle. Complete protection against access by outside people is not feasible.
Processing of data
The subject matter of data protection is personal data. According to Art. 4 subsection 1 GDPR, this means all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural entity. For example, this covers information such as name, postal address, e-mail address or telephone number, but also, if applicable, data about use such as your IP address. Each access to our homepage and each call of a file deposited on the homepage is recorded in server log files. Storage serves internal, system-related and statistical purposes. The following are recorded:
- name of the accessed file
- date and time of the access
- quantity of data transmitted
- report on a successful access
- web browser
- inquiring domain
- operating system used
- IP address used in an anonymised form
- search terms
Further-reaching personal data are only processed if you give this information voluntarily, for example as a part of an inquiry. Without your consent, we will not forward your data to third parties.
Right to information, correction and erasure
Upon request, you will receive information free of charge about your personal data stored with us, their origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing, as well as a right to correction, restriction of processing or deletion of this data. Statutory retention periods may conflict with data deletion.
Right to object
Upon application, you will receive information and your personal data stored by us, their origin and recipient and the purpose of the data processing free of charge as well as a right to rectification, restriction of the processing or deletion of these data. Statutory archiving periods may contradict erasure of data.
Consent and right of withdrawal
If you have granted us consent for the use of data, you can withdraw it at any time. A simple message to us suffices for this purpose.
Right of objection
At any time, you have the right to object to processing of your data which is admissible per se as a result of a specific personal situation. A simple message to us in which you substantiate your objection suffices for it.
