Privacy Statement

The protection of your personal data is very important to us. We would therefore like to inform you about the type, purpose and means of the processing of personal data collected during your visit to our website within the scope of this data protection declaration.

Purpose and means of data processing
In principle, we only process personal data if we have your consent and the data is required for the provision of our website, its contents and other services. If prior consent cannot be obtained for real reasons and processing of the data is permitted by law, processing may also take place without explicit consent.

When you visit our website, information may be collected in order to adapt our website to the needs and interests of our visitors. This includes data such as the IP address and browser used, pages visited and the website from which a visit is made as well as clicks on our links, search words or search phrases, viewing videos, etc. By means of this information we learn how the website is used and are thus in a position to continuously improve our offer.

Cookies
We are using Cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of the use of the website. Cookies also increase the user-friendliness and security of websites.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser. At this point, however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.

Google Analytics
As a web analysis tool we use Google Analytics, a service of Google Inc. "("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which enable an analysis of the use of the website (see also the section "Cookies" for further information).

The information generated by the cookies is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated when you visit our website, Google will reduce your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website. On the basis of this evaluation, reports on website activities are compiled and further services connected with the use of the websites and the Internet are provided to us. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

In addition, you can prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website - including your IP address - and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

Contact form
You can contact us via our contact form. If you use this function, your data will be transmitted to us and stored by us so that we can process or even answer your request. We will not pass on the information you provide to third parties or use it for other purposes that differ from your request without your consent.

Alternatively to the contact form you can also contact us via our contact details mentioned in the imprint.

Information disclosure
We will only pass on your data for further collection and use if this is legally permissible or if you have explicitly consented to this in advance. When passing on data to our external service providers, we take adequate technical and organisational measures to ensure that data protection regulations are observed.

Duration of data storage
We delete or block your personal data as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply, unless we are obliged by European or national law to store this data. A blockage or deletion also takes place beyond the expiry of a prescribed storage period, provided that the necessity for further storage exists for a conclusion of a contract or a fulfilment of a contract.

Withdrawel of consent and right of objection
You can withdraw your consent to the collection, processing and use of your personal data for the future at any time. You also have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for reasons arising from your particular situation. In both cases, your personal data will no longer be processed in the future unless there are compelling grounds for processing worthy of protection which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

Other rights of data subjects
As a person affected by the storage or processing of personal data, you have the right to obtain as to whether or not personal data concerning you is being processed by us and the right to access to your personal data stored by us. You also have the right to obtain the rectification of incorrect data, supplement incomplete data or, if necessary, delete information about you, unless we are legally obliged to store your personal data. If you feel that your data protection rights have been violated, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority.
