Privacy Policy


We place great importance on protecting your personal data and only collect, process and use it in accordance with the principles set out below, while complying with all relevant data protection laws. Our website has been designed in accordance with statutory data protection provisions.

Under German law, the general right of personality gives rise to the right of self-determination in relation to information. Statutory provisions such as the GDPR, the Bundesdatenschutzgesetz [German Federal Data Protection Act] and the Telemediengesetz [German Telemedia Act] aim to protect this. We are thus convinced that you, as an internet user, would like to know that your privacy is assured.

• Whenever we wish to collect, process or use personal data from your visit to our website, we will inform you of this.
• You are able to decide what personal data we receive from you and the purposes for which it is used or processed.
• We respect your data protection rights, in particular, your right of access to the data held on you.
• Our safety precautions are state of the art.
• Our company data protection officer shall ensure that “data protection principles” are complied with.

Your personal data

Personal data is defined as all information relating to an identified or identifiable person. This includes, for instance, your name and telephone number, as well as your postal and email address.

Scope of collection, processing and use of data

You do not need to share your personal data with us to simply visit our website.
Furthermore, we do not collect, process or use your data unless you have given us your express consent to our doing so.

Using contact, registration and application forms

You can use the contact, registration and application forms available on this website to contact us directly. We only collect, process and use the information you provide to us via these forms to enable us to deal with your queries or requests.

Data collection and logging

Whenever you access our website, you transmit data to our web server via your internet browser (out of technical necessity). The following types of data are recorded while your internet browser and our web server are connected, so that they may communicate with each other:

• The date and time of the request
• The name of the requested file
• The page from which the file was requested
• The access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
• The web browser and operating system used
• The full IP address of the computer making the request
• The volume of data transferred

This data is saved on our website for a short time, for technical security reasons, including, in particular, the protection of our web server from hacking attempts. It is not possible for us to use this data to identify individuals. After seven days at the latest, the data is anonymised by abbreviating the IP address at a domain level, meaning it is no longer possible to attribute it to an individual user. The data is then used in an anonymised form for statistical purposes: neither the data, nor even extracts from the data, are matched with other data stocks or passed on to third parties. The number of site visits is only shown in our server statistics, which, for reasons of data protection, we process as part of our activity report.

Collection of other data

Unless you use the contact forms we provide, we do not collect any additional data from you. If you do fill in one of the online forms that we provide and use it to share personal data with us, or if you send us an e-mail, your personal data will be collected, processed and used for the sole purpose of dealing with your query or complaint.
