Collection of general information when you visit our website
If you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected using a cookie. This information (server log files) includes the type of browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and similar. This exclusively concerns information that cannot be traced back to an individual person.
This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the content requested by you from website and is mandatory in instances of use of the Internet. In particular, it is processed for the following purposes:
- To ensure the establishment of a problem-free connection to the website,
- To ensure seamless use of our website,
- To evaluate the system security and stability, and
- For further administrative purposes.
The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest arising from the aforementioned purposes of data collection. We do not use your data not to draw conclusions about your person. The only recipients of the data are the Responsible Body and, if necessary, processors.
Anonymous information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us if necessary, in order to optimise our Internet presence and the underlying technology.
Like many other websites, we also use so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files that are transferred to your hard disk from a website server. These allow us to automatically receive certain data, such as the IP-address, the browser used, the operating system and your connection to the Internet..
Cookies cannot be used to run programmes or transfer viruses to a computer. On the basis of the information contained in cookies, we can make navigation easier for you and correctly display our website.
Under no circumstances are the collected data disclosed to third parties or a link established to your personal data without your consent.
If you contact us with questions of any kind by e-mail or using the contact form, you voluntarily grant your consent for the purpose of making contact. The provision of a valid e-mail address is required for this. This is used to categorise the request and to subsequently respond to it. The provision of other data is optional. The information you provide is stored for the purpose of processing the request and for possible follow-up questions. Once your request has been completed, personal data are deleted automatically..
Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts)
In order to display our content correctly and in an appealing manner across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries on this website, e.g. Google Webfonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/). Google Webfonts are transferred to avoid multiple downloads in your browser's cache. If the browser does not support Google Webfonts or prevents access, content is displayed in a standard font.
Calling up script libraries or font libraries automatically initiates a connection to the operator of the library. In doing so, it is theoretically possible - though currently unclear as to whether and for what purposes - that the operators of the relevant libraries collect data..
Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Maps API to visually display geographical information. When Google Maps is used, data on the use of the map functions by visitors are also collected, processed and used by Google. Further information on the processing of data by Google can be found in the Google privacy information. There, you can also change your personal data privacy settings in the Data Privacy Center.
