Privacy Policy

Data protection

A visit to our website can result in the storage on our server of information about the access (date, time, page accessed). This does not represent any analysis of personal data (e.g., name, address or e-mail address). If personal data are collected, this only occurs – to the extent possible – with the prior consent of the user of the website. Any forwarding of the data to third parties without the express consent of the user shall not take place.

We would like to expressly point out that the transmission of data via the Internet (e.g., by e-mail) can offer security vulnerabilities. It is therefore impossible to safeguard the data completely against access by third parties. We cannot assume any liability for damages arising as a result of such security vulnerabilities.

The use by third parties of all published contact details for the purpose of advertising is expressly excluded. We reserve the right to take legal steps in the case of the unsolicited sending of advertising information; e.g., by means of spam mail.

Information on the use of cookies

On this website, we use cookies to make our website more attractive to visitors and to enable the use of particular functions. Cookies are small text files that your browser can store on your computer. The process whereby a cookie is stored is also referred to as “setting a cookie”. You yourself can adjust the settings of your browser according to your wishes and can do so in such a way that you are informed that cookies are being set, decide whether to accept this on a case-by-case basis or fundamentally rule out the use of cookies at all. Cookies can be used for a variety of purposes, for example to find out whether your computer has already had a connection to a particular website during a previous Internet session (persistent cookies) or to remember the last websites you visited during an Internet session (session cookies). We use cookies in order to offer you enhanced user comfort. Most of the cookies we use are deleted from your computer when the browser session ends (session cookies). Other cookies remain on your computer and enable us to recognise your computer the next time you visit our website (persistent cookies). In order to use our comfort functions, we recommend that you allow cookies to be accepted for our website.
