Protecting your personal data when they are collected, processed, and used as a result of your visit to our website is important to us. Your data are protected within the scope of the statutory provisions. This statement contains information on which data are collected during your visit to the website and how they are used.

Collection and processing of data

Every instance of access to our website and every time a file stored on the website is accessed are logged. Storage of this information serves internal system-related and statistical purposes. The following information is logged: name of the file retrieved, date and time of re-trieval, volume of data transmitted, report of successful retrieval, Web browser and requesting domain. In addition, the IP addresses of the requesting computers are logged. Further personal data are collected only if you voluntarily provide information, for example as part of an inquiry or registration or to enter into an agreement or via your browser settings.

Use of cookies

Our website uses cookies. A cookie is a text file that is sent when a user visits a website and is then stored in the interim on the hard drive of the website user and/or customer. If the relevant server of our website is accessed again by the website user and/or customer, the browser of the website user and/or customer sends the previously received cookie back to the server. The server can then analyze the information received through this procedure in various ways. Cookies make it possible to do things like manage advertising settings or facilitate navigation on a website. If the website user and/or customer wishes to prevent the use of cookies, he/she can do so by making local changes to the settings in the Internet browser used on his/her computer, meaning the program used to open and display websites (such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, or Safari).

Data protection and privacy statement for the use of Google Analytics

To optimize your use of this website, we use an analysis tool called Google Analytics. This is a standard analytics tool of Google Inc. To perform an analysis, Google uses “cookies,” via which it obtains information regarding your user behavior and analyzes this information accordingly. The analysis and interpretation of your data takes place on an anonymous basis. The tracking code used by Google has been appended on our Web pages in such a way that your IP address is truncated by Google, meaning that the last digits are eliminated, before the analysis takes place. This means that as a basic principle, it is no longer possible to track you personally or to merge these data with the data about you that are already known to Google.

Collection, anonymization, and analysis of user data are performed by Google by written order of the website operator (see Legal Notice (Impressum)).

You have the option to restrict the use of cookies or prevent the use of cookies altogether via your browser settings. However, preventing the use of cookies could mean that you are not able to use all of the functions of this website. You can also merely prevent the collection of your user data and analysis of your user behavior by Google Analytics by downloading and installing the specific browser plugin developed by Google, which is available via the following link:
