The relevant information consists of the name of the website, the file, the current date, the amount of data transmitted, the browser and its version number, the domain names of your internet provider, the referrer URL, which is the website you visited before switching to our website, and the corresponding IP address. This collection is carried out on the basis of our legitimate interest under Art. 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR.
The data collected are used exclusively for evaluating the data statistically to ensure operation and safety and to optimise processing of the offer. For security reasons, however, we reserve the right to inspect log files retroactively if we have sufficient grounds to suspect illegal usage. These data are deleted after 7 days at the latest.

Cookies
In several areas of the website we use so-called "cookies", for example to identify the preferences of the users and thus to optimally design the website. This allows for easier navigation and a high degree of user-friendliness of the website.
Cookies are small files which are stored on the visitor' s hard disk drive. Most cookies used on the website are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted after the end of your visit. Other cookies stay on your devices until you delete them.

Security of Your Data
We deploy technical and organisational security measures to adequately protect the data that you have made available to us from being unintentionally or intentionally manipulated, lost, destroyed or accessed by unauthorised persons. Therefore, we are using SSL encryption for the transmission of confidential content e.g. enquires which you send to us as the site operator. An encrypted connection can be recognised when the web address changes from "http://" to "https://" and a padlock symbol is shown in your browser bar. When SSL encryption is activated, the data which you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties. Our security measures are kept up-to-date.

In exceptional circumstances only, the full IP address is transmitted to a server of Google in the USA and shortened there. Google uses this data on behalf of the website operator to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports about website activities and to provide other website services related to website and internet usage on behalf of the website provider. Your IP address, collected in the context of Google Analytics, is not combined with other data provided by Google.

Objection to Advertising Email

We point out that the unauthorised transmission of advertising material can have competitive-juridical, civil and criminal rights consequences. Especially spam mails and spam faxes can lead to high claims for damages when they disrupt the smooth business operation by overfilling email inboxes or blocking fax lines.
