When you access our website, you transmit data to our web server via your internet browser as a technical necessity. The following data is recorded:

  • Date and time of the request
  • Name of the requested file
  • Page from which the file was requested
  • Access status
  • Transmitted data volume
  • Web browser and operating system used
  • IP address of the requesting computer

This data is only stored for a short period of time, separately from any personal data you may have provided. A passing on of these data to third parties, also in extracts, does not take place.

If you contact us with questions of any kind or via contact form, you give us your voluntary consent to the collection of personal data for the purpose of contacting you. For this purpose, at least the specification of a valid e-mail address is required, the specification of further data is optional. The information you provide will be stored exclusively for the purpose of processing your inquiry and for possible follow-up questions. Without your consent, this data will not be used for other purposes or passed on to third parties. They will be deleted after the storage is no longer necessary or the processing will be restricted if legal retention periods exist.

As a user, you will receive information on request about what personal data has been stored about you. You have the right to have this data corrected, blocked or deleted, insofar as this does not conflict with any legal provisions.
