SSL encryption
This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content such as the inquiries you send to us as the site operator.

If SSL encryption is activated the data that are transmitted from you to us cannot be read by third parties.

Web analysis
Based on the saved connection data, this site uses the web analysis tool "Webalizer" for statistical analysis of the accesses by users to this site. "Webalizer" creates analyses based on the data from the server log files, for example on the number of hits, file / page requests, visits, etc. These evaluations are carried out on the basis of Article 6, Paragraph 1, Sentence 1, Letter f of the GDPR. The web analysis tool used is intended to ensure a needs-based design and continuous optimization of our offer. On the other hand, we use the "Webalizer" to statistically record the use of our offer and evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our offer. These interests are to be regarded as legitimate within the meaning of the aforementioned regulations. These evaluations are not combined with other data sources, in particular with personal data. The information generated is stored in Germany. A disclosure to third parties does not occur.

Purposes of processing personal data

We process the aforementioned data for the operation of our website and for the fulfilment of contractual obligations towards our customers and the safeguarding of our legitimate interests. In the case of inquiries from you outside of an active customer relationship, the data is processed for the purposes of sales and advertising. You can object to the use of your personal data for advertising purposes at any time.

Voluntary information

If you voluntarily provide us with data, e.g. in forms, which are not required for the fulfilment of our contractual obligations we process this data on the justified assumption that the processing and use of this data is in your interest.

Recipient / transfer of data

Data that you provide to us will generally not be passed on to third parties. In particular, your data will not be passed on to third parties for their advertising purposes. However, we may use service providers for the operation of this website or for other products or services from us. In this case it is possible that a service provider gets knowledge of personal data. We select our service providers carefully - especially with regard to data protection and data security - and take all measures required by data protection law for permissible data processing.
