Privacy policy



The following privacy policy applies to the use of this website. The use of our website is generally possible without any indication of personal data. However, if you want to use special services of our company via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary.


This website is subject to the Federal Data Protection Act (DSG) and takes into account the key points of the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) of the European Union (EU).


We are concerned about the security of your data within the framework of the applicable data protection laws and technical possibilities. As a rule, your personal data is transmitted encrypted with us. We use the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) coding system, but we would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps.


This data protection declaration is continuously supplemented and adapted to the legal requirements and the services offered. In each case, the current privacy policy applies. The changes come into force as soon as they have been published on our website.


Processing of personal data
You have the option of registering for various services on the website by providing personal data. Which personal data is transmitted to the data controller in the process usually results from the respective input mask used for registration.


Personal data is any information that relates to an identified or identifiable person. This can be, for example, the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a person. This personal data can be processed by us. Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organization, arrangement, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.


The personal data you enter will be collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the data controller and for its own purposes. Wherever possible, the data will be anonymized. Anonymized means that no conclusions can be drawn about a data subject.


The criterion for the duration of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of this period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for the fulfillment or initiation of a contract.
