    Subject of data protection
    The subject of data protection is personal data. “Personal data” means any information that refers to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes such information as your name, address, telephone number or email address, but also information which must be created while you use our website. This information includes data on the beginning, ending and scope of the use, as well as the transmission of your IP address.

    Collecting and processing personal data
    In general, our website can be used anonymously. When you access our website, information about the access (such as the date, time, and sites visited) can be stored on the server. Since this data is anonymised, it does not constitute personal data. We process these data based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR to provide the website, to ensure technical operation, and to identify and remedy faults. This is to enable the use of our website and ensure its technical functionality over the long term. These data are processed automatically when our website is accessed. You cannot use our website without providing these data. We will never use the collected data to draw personal conclusions about you or your identity.

    As the provider of this website, we explicitly draw reference to the fact that data transmission via the Internet (e.g. communicating via email) features security vulnerabilities and data cannot be completely protected from being accessed by third parties. The use of the provider's contact details - especially the telephone/fax numbers and email address - for commercial advertising purposes is not desired, unless the provider issues prior written consent or there is a pre-existing business relationship. We, the provider, and all persons named on this website hereby object to any commercial use or dissemination of your data.

    Liability for third-party content, especially linked content
    The information we provide to you on this website has been compiled with the greatest care and is updated continually. However, although we monitor it as diligently as possible, we cannot guarantee it is free from errors. We therefore exclude any liability and make no guarantee that the information provided on this website is exact, complete or up to date. This especially applies to websites which contain links or ties to other websites (“external links”). Those internet sites are subject to the liability of their respective operators. The provider has no influence over their present or future design, or over the content of the linked pages. The placement of external links on the provider’s website does not mean that the provider is responsible for or owns the linked content. As the provider of this website, we cannot reasonably be expected to continually check external links without specific indications of legal infringements. However, if we learn of such infringements we will delete those external links without undue delay.

Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how visitors use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.

The full IP address will only be transmitted to a Google Server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for the website operator, and providing other services to the website operator relating to website activity and Internet usage. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

    Contact form
    We process the following data about you to handle your request, provided you have included those data in the contact form: name, email, telephone, company name, and the content of your request. We will forward your data if necessary to handle your request. The legal basis for processing your personal data depends on your request, and can result from a contract with you (Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR), your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR), or due to a weighing of our legitimate interest in offering you good service (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR). If we are processing your data based on your consent, that processing will continue until you withdraw your consent; if that processing is based on a weighing of interests, it will continue until you object to such processing; and if it is based on your request, until that request has been filled. We cannot process your request unless you disclose the data we need to contact you and to understand and handle that request. Further information is voluntary. This service is meant for people who are 18 or older.

    If we are processing your personal data based on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR), you may revoke this consent at any time, with effect for the future. If we are processing your personal data based on a weighing of interests (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR), you may object at any time, with effect for the future.

    Moreover, we will store your personal data only as long as necessary to fulfil the intended purposes or, if you have granted your consent, until you revoke it. If you object to the processing, we will erase your personal data unless relevant statutory provisions allow us to process them further. We will also erase your personal data if required to do so on the basis of other statutory grounds.

    Under application of these general principles, we will normally erase your personal data without undue delay. Use of the contact form is technically impossible unless this information is collected.

    Geolocalisation services
    We also provide mobile-based services as part of our Internet site. These link you to your respective location in a similar way to when using Google Maps or Bing Maps. By using these services, your current location will be transmitted, such as via a GPS signal, or other data will be analysed to narrow down your location.

    You will be asked for your consent to this before you can use these geolocalisation services. You can also cease use of the services at any time by making the corresponding changes in your mobile phone settings.

    Below you will find links to access more information on Google Maps, Bing Maps and their privacy policies:

    Your rights to data protection
    You have the following rights toward us: the right to access information about the personal data concerning you, the right to rectification, the right to erasure, the right to restriction of processing and the right to data portability, and, if processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (e) and (f) GDPR, the right to object to that processing. If you have granted us your consent to process your personal data in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR or Art. 9 (2) (a) GDPR, you may withdraw that consent at any time, although any data processing already performed will still be deemed lawful. You have the right to complain to a supervisory authority.

    Scope of this data privacy statement; Amendments
    This data privacy statement applies only to the use of the internet sites we offer. It does not apply to the internet sites of other service providers to which we merely refer with a link. We assume no responsibility or liability for external statements and guidelines not connected to our internet presence.

    We reserve the right to occasionally adapt the preceding data protection provisions to future changes regarding the collection and processing of personal data.
