Data protection principles:
We give high priority to data protection and data security for customers and users. That is why it is also very important for us to protect personal data in all business processes. Data protection and information security are parts of our company policy. This data protection declaration explains which information we gather – while you visit our website – and how this information is used. However, this does not apply to websites of companies which do not belong to the company, even if these external websites have a link to this website. Our website can contain links to websites of other providers to which this data privacy statement does not extend.
Collection and processing of personal data:
For system security, if you visit our websites, our web server temporarily records the domain name or the IP address of the inquiring computer as well as the date of access, the file request of the client (file name and URL), the http response code and the website from which you access us as well as the number of transferred bytes in the connection. In some circumstances, we save some information as so called “cookies” on your PC, so that we can optimise our website according to your preferences. Personal data in addition to this like name, address, telephone number or email address are not recorded, unless you voluntarily give these details, for example within the scope of a survey, a competition or request for information. Personal data recorded while our website is being visited is solely processed according to the legal regulations of the country in which the company concerned in question is located.

We only use your personal data for the technical administration of the websites, and to fulfil your wishes and requirements.

We will only disclose information to government agencies if this is proscribed by law. Our staff and our business offices are obligated to treat data as confidential.
Children and young persons under 18 years of age should not transmit personal data without the consent of their parents.
Use of the contact data published in the legal details or similar details by third parties to transmit information not expressly demanded is not permitted. We reserve the right to take legal action against the sender of so called spam mails if they violate this prohibition.
