We are pleased by your visit to our web pages and your interest in our company. We are conscious of the fact that protection of your privacy when using our web pages is important to you. For this reason, we would like to inform you about what information we record during your visit to our webpages and how this information is used.
General information is automatically collected during any visit to our web pages. This information includes:
The data are evaluated merely for statistical purposes. Where data are forwarded to external service providers, we have taken technical and organizational measures to ensure that data protection provisions are observed.
Personal data are details of an identifiable natural person's personal or material circumstances. This includes information such as your name, your address, your telephone number and your date of birth. Personal data are collected only if you make them available to us on your own initiative, in the course of, say, registering, by filling in forms or sending e-mails, in the course of ordering products or services, making enquires or requesting material. The personal data that you communicate to us via a web page (e.g. your name and your address or your e-mail address) are processed only for correspondence with you and for the purpose for which you made the data available to us. In addition, we will use these data to make occasional offers to you, to inform you about new products or services and other services that may be of interest to you. You may object to this use of personal data at any time. The database and its contents remain with our company and our provider. Your personal data will not be made available by us to third parties in any form, unless we have obtained your consent or an official injunction to do so.
If requested in writing, we will inform you about what data we have stored about you as a person. You have the right to check all personal data stored with us and to have them rectified if, in your opinion, they are out of data or incorrect.
Cookies are small files that enable us to store specific user-related information on your PC during your visit to one of our web pages. Cookies help us to determine the frequency of use and the number of users of our web pages and to make our offerings as convenient and efficient as possible for you. Most of the cookies used by us are "session cookies" or are used for data analysis by etracker (see above). Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Cookies do not cause any damage on your computer and do not contain any viruses or similar malware. You can also use our web pages without cookies. You can disable the storage of cookies in your browser, limit them to particular web pages or configure your browser to inform you as soon as a cookie is placed.
Third-party content such as YouTube videos, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other web pages may be incorporated within this online offering. This is always conditional upon the users' IP address being disclosed to the providers of such content (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers"), because, without the IP address, they would not be able to send the content to the respective user's browser. The IP address is therefore necessary for the presentation of such content. We endeavour to use only content whose respective providers use the IP address merely to deliver the content. However, we have no control over third-party providers storing the IP address, say, for statistical purposes. Where we are aware of this, we inform users about it.
We deploy technical and organizational security measures to protect the data that you have made available from being manipulated unintentionally or intentionally, lost, destroyed or accessed by unauthorized persons. Our security measures are subject to continuous revision in line with technological developments. Should you wish to contact us by e-mail, we draw your attention to the fact that there is no guarantee of the confidentiality of the transmitted information. The content of e-mails may be viewed by third parties. We therefore recommend that you use only the postal service to send confidential information to us.
Should you have any questions regarding the processing of your personal data, you can contact our Data Protection Officer, who will also be pleased to assist you in the event of requests for information, suggestions or complaints.
The constant development of the Internet means that we need to adjust our privacy statement from time to time. We reserve the right to make relevant changes at any time.
