Data protection/privacy

Website

During the course of your visit to this website, we will collect the following information: the date and time when the page on our website is called, your IP address, name and version of your Web browser and the website (URL) that you visited before calling this website.

We will process your personal data for the following purposes:

  • to make this website available to you, and to further improve and develop this website;
  • to be able to recognise, prevent and investigate attacks on our website.


The legal basis for processing your personal data is our legitimate prevailing interest (pursuant to Art. 6 para 1 lit f EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which consists of achieving the purposes mentioned above.

For the purposes given above, we will transmit your personal data to the following recipients:

  • IT service providers that we use;
  • if commanded, to government agencies and state institutions.

 

Some of the recipients mentioned above are located outside of your country or process your personal data there. In some circumstances, the data protection level in other countries does not correspond to that in your country. However, we only transmit your personal data to countries outside the EU for which the EU Commission has decided that they have a reasonable level of data protection, or we take measures to ensure that all recipients have a reasonable level of data protection. For example, we use standard contractual clauses (2010/87/EC and/or 2004/915/EC). They are available from us on request.

 

We will generally only store your data for a duration of 6 months. It is only stored longer if this is necessary to investigate attacks established on our website. 

Cookies

So-called cookies are used on this website. A cookie is a small file that can be stored on your computer when you visit a website. Generally, cookies are used to offer users additional functions on a website. They can be used, for example, to simplify the navigation in a website, to enable you to continue using a website at the place where you left off, and/or to save your preferences and settings if you visit the website again. Cookies cannot access, read or change any other data on your computer.

Most of the cookies on this website are so-called session cookies. They are automatically deleted when you leave our website again. Permanent cookies, on the other hand, remain on your computer until you delete them manually in your browser. We use such permanent cookies to recognise you again when you visit our website the next time.

 

If you want to control cookies on your computer, you can select your browser settings so that you are given a notification when a website wants to store cookies. You can also block or delete cookies if they have already been stored on your computer. If you would like to know more about how to take this step, please use the “Help” function in your browser.

Social Media Cookies

By default, we do not save any social media cookies and do not transmit any data at all to social networks. Only an active process in a social media service (share, tweet, like and so on) is recorded by this.
