Privacy protection information
We appreciate your visit to our website and your interest in our company. To assure you of our responsible management of your personal data we make transparent what happens to the data accumulated and what security precautions we undertake for you. You will also be informed of your statutorily established rights in connection with processing this data.
When you visit our website we generally need no personal data from you. We only take notice of information regarding the name of your Internet Service Provider and our web pages that you access. As an Internet user you will remain anonymous, however, because we analyze this information only for statistical purposes (e.g. number of times individual web pages have been accessed).
In addition, personal data is collected only if you provide on your own accord, for example, to conclude or initiate a contract, to have us send informational material to you or to participate in a survey. Data that you provide to use in connection with our website is stored, processed and used only for purposes of initiating and administering contracts and processing your queries. Your data is also processed and used for purposes of consulting, advertising and market and opinion research if you have given your consent. You can, of course, withdraw your consent at any time.
Currently the data is still transmitted unencrypted so that the possibility cannot be excluded that unauthorized third parties can also read this data on its transmission path. There is, however, the possibility of using alternative communication paths (e.g. postal mail or fax) that offer more security than unencrypted e-mail.
User profiles / consent
User profiles are not created. If we intend to create user profiles in the future, we will inform you of our intention in a timely manner after you visit our website so that you will have the option to object. We will then honor your wish, of course, and not create a profile for you.
Using and passing on personal data / purpose limitation
We will collect, process and use all the personal data that we gather from you in the course of using our web pages only for the specified purpose. We note that this will occur only within the framework of the applicable legal provisions or only with your consent. You may cancel any approvals granted at any time by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. The cancellation will then apply to future data collection. Your data will not be sold, leased or made available otherwise to third parties. Personal data will be submitted to government offices or authorities only within the scope of mandatory national legal provisions.
Right to information
Upon request we can also notify you in writing whether and which of your personal data is stored. Please contact email@example.com by e-mail for this purpose.
To protect the data of our employees/customers/suppliers that we have stored from accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons, we have taken corresponding technical and organizational measures. Security levels are constantly reviewed in collaboration with security experts and adapted to new security standards.
We use so-called ‘cookies’ in several locations on our web pages. They serve the purpose of making our Internet presence more user friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files stored on your computer system and that are stored by your browser (locally on your hard drive).
With these cookies we can analyze how users use our web pages, allowing us to design the website content to meet the needs of our visitors. Cookies also give us the ability to measure the effectiveness of a particular ad and its placement, depending on the thematic user interests, for example.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called ‘session cookies’. They are automatically deleted after your visit.
Most web browsers accept cookies automatically. But as a rule you can also change the settings of your browser if you would rather not transmit the information. Generally, you may nevertheless use the features of our website without restrictions. In some cases, however, it can lead to functional limitations to our offers.
This website uses etracker technology (www.etracker.com) to collect visitor behavior data. This data is collected anonymously to be used for marketing and optimization purposes. All visitor data is saved using an anonymous user ID and can be aggregated to a usage profile. Cookies may be used to collect and save this data, but the data remains strictly anonymous.

Google Tag Manager
This website uses Google Tag Manager. This service allows administration of website tags through an interface. Google Tag Manager only implements tags, which means that cookies are not used and personal data is not recorded. Google Tag Manager triggers other tags that may record data; however, Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If an deactivation was implemented on the domain or cookie level, all tracking tags will remain deactivated provided they are implemented with Google Tag Manager.
If you have any questions you can also contact our data protection officer directly, who will be happy to answer your questions. Please send your query to firstname.lastname@example.org.
