Responsible party for the data processing:
Thank you for your interest in our website. The protection of your privacy is very important to us. Below we inform you in detail about how we handle your data.
1. Access data and hosting
You can visit our websites without giving any personal information. Whenever you call up a website, the web server merely automatically saves a so-called server log file, which contains, for example, the name of the requested file, your IP address, the date and time of the call, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the call.
This access data is evaluated solely for the purpose of ensuring the trouble-free operation of the site and improving our online presence. Pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR, this serves to safeguard our predominantly legitimate interests in a correct presentation of our online presence when weighing up the interests involved. All access data will be deleted at the latest seven days after the end of your visit to our website.
Hosting services through a third party provider
Within the scope of processing on our behalf, a third party provider provides us with the services for hosting and displaying the website. All data collected in the course of using this website or in forms provided for this purpose as described below are processed on its servers. Processing on other servers only takes place within the scope described here.
This service provider is located within a country of the European Union or the European Economic Area.
2. Data collection and use for contact purposes
We collect personal data if you provide us with this information when contacting us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail). Mandatory fields are marked as such, since in these cases we need the data to process your contact and you cannot send the contact without the data. Pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR, this serves to safeguard our predominantly legitimate interests in the context of weighing up interests, to give you the opportunity to contact us at any time and to be able to answer your questions. The input form shows which data are collected. We use the data you provide us with to process your enquiries. After your enquiry has been fully processed, your data will be restricted for further processing and deleted after the expiry of any retention periods required under tax and commercial law, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use your data for purposes that go beyond those permitted by law and about which we inform you in this declaration.

Cookies are small text files that are automatically stored on your end device. Some of the cookies used by us are deleted again after the end of the browser session, i.e. after closing your browser (so-called session cookies).
