Deletion of data
Data stored by us will be deleted if it is no longer required for its intended purpose and there are no legal retention periods. If deletion cannot be carried out because the data is required for permissible legal purposes, data processing will be restricted. In this case, the data will be blocked and not processed for other purposes.
Right of appeal
Users of this website may exercise their right to object to the processing of their personal data at any time.
The following information provides a simple overview of what happens to your personal data when you visit our website. Personal data is any data with which you can be personally identified. When we talk about “customers” in the following, we are referring to the operators of the website – also noted as “responsible publisher” in the imprint.
Data collection on our website
Who is responsible for the data collection on this website?
Data processing on this website is carried out by the website operator. You can find his contact details in the responsible publisher section of this website.
How do we collect your data?
Data is automatically collected by our IT systems when you visit the website. This is mainly technical data (e.g. internet browser, operating system or time of page view). This data is collected automatically as soon as you enter our website.
What do we use your data for?
Part of the data is collected to ensure error-free provision of the website. Other data may be used to analyse your user behaviour. Your IP address is stored by our servers for up to 24 months. This is done for security reasons (the firewall software “Fail2Ban” uses this to reliably fend off attacks on our server systems). After a maximum of 24 months (or corresponding written request) the IPs are removed again accordingly.
What rights do you have regarding your data?
You have the right to receive information about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data free of charge at any time. You also have the right to request the correction, blocking or deletion of this data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint for this purpose and for further questions on the subject of data protection. Furthermore, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority.
The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.
We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
Note on the responsible entity
The data controller for this website is:
The controller is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses or similar).
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke consent you have already given at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of violations of data protection law, the person concerned has the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority in matters of data protection law is the State Data Protection Commissioner of the country in which the customer has its registered office.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Disclosure, blocking, deletion
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data. For this purpose as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the responsible publsiher section.
Objection to advertising e-mails
The use of contact data published within the scope of the imprint obligation to send advertising and information material that has not been expressly requested is hereby prohibited. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as spam e-mails.
Data collection on our website
Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- Browser type and version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
- IP addresse
This data is not merged with other data sources.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures. This data is kept for 24 months and graphically processed in a data protection-compliant and anonymised manner via the statistics tool “PIWIK/MATOMO”.
Analysis / Web statistics
The web tracking tool “Matomo” (formerly: “Piwik”) is used for the purpose of optimising our internet pages. The IP addresses are immediately anonymised by Matomo, which means that it is not possible to identify visitors. The anonymous statistical data is stored separately from any personal data you may have provided and does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about a specific person.
No cookies are used on this website – unless you object to tracking. In this case, cookies are set for technical reasons to specifically prevent tracking.
Share content via plugins (Facebook, Google+1, Twitter & Co.)
The content on our pages can be shared on social networks such as Facebook, Twitter or Google+ in a privacy-compliant manner. This page uses privacy-compliant links to the corresponding networks. These simple links do not transmit any data in advance without your consent. This tool only establishes direct contact between the networks and users when the user actively clicks on one of these buttons.
This tool does not automatically transfer user data to the operators of these platforms. If the user is registered with one of the social networks, an information window appears when using the social buttons of Facebook, Google+1, Twitter & Co. in which the user can confirm the text before sending it.
Our users can share the content of this page in social networks in a privacy-compliant manner without complete surfing profiles being created by the operators of the networks.

Google Web Fonts
This site uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.
Since the web fonts are integrated locally, no call to Google is necessary – accordingly, no data is output to display the locally installed Google font. Google Web Fonts are used in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer.
