Data protection

In the following passages we would like to inform you about our data privacy statement. Here you will find information concerning the collection and use of personal data while visiting our website. In collecting and using this data, we comply with the data protection laws that apply in Germany. You can view this statement on our website at any time.

We would like expressly to point out that security breaches may occur during the transfer of data over the internet (e.g. during communication by email), and that these transfers cannot be completely protected against unauthorised access by third parties.

The use for advertising purposes of our contact details as stated in our legal notice is explicitly undesired without our prior written permission or pre-existing business relations. The provider and all persons named on this website hereby object to any commercial use and transmission of their data.

Personal data

You can access our website without needing to provide any personal data. Where personal data is collected on our website (such as name, address or email address), this is done wherever possible on a voluntary basis. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent. In the event that a contractual relationship between you and us should be established, developed or amended, or should you send us an inquiry, we will collect and use your personal data to the extent necessary for the purposes concerned. We collect, process and use personal data to the extent necessary that enables you to use the website (usage data). All personal data will only be stored for as long as is necessary for the stated purpose (processing your inquiry or executing a contract). The data will be stored in compliance with tax and commercial law retention periods. At the request of the competent authorities, we are permitted to disclose information in individual cases (inventory data) where this is necessary for the purposes of criminal prosecutions, averting danger, assisting the intelligence services or military counter intelligence services, or in order to enforce intellectual property rights.

By voluntarily registering your email address for our newsletter and confirming it via the double-opt-in process, you are declaring your consent to receiving our email newsletter. You can at any time revoke your consent to the use of your email address without incurring any costs beyond the basic cost of transmission. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time. Every email contains an “Unsubscribe” link. Providing an email address is all that is required to receive our newsletter. Any additional information is solely used for the purpose of personalising the newsletter.

Data privacy statement for the Google Plus social network

This website uses Google Plus’s so-called ‘G+1’ button, which is run by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States. The button can be recognised by the ‘G+1’ symbol. If you are registered with Google Plus, you can express your interest in our website by pressing the ‘G+1’ button and share content from our webpages on Google Plus. When this button is pressed, Google stores both the information that you gave our content a ‘G+1’ and information about the site that was being viewed when the button was pressed. Your ‘G+1’s, together with your name (and potentially your account photo if one is present) may be used in other Google services such as a Google search or your Google profile.

For information on the purpose and extent of the data collection, as well as its subsequent processing and use by Google, and for details of your rights in this regard and settings options that serve to protect your personal privacy, please refer to Google’s data protection information:
