Type of personal data
The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data. When you access our website, only access data (e.g. browser type, pages visited and access duration) is transmitted. This access data does not contain any personal data and does not allow any conclusions about an identifiable person in any other way. In particular, no usage profiles are created by the access data. They are only used for statistical evaluation and optimisation of our website. (For further information see “Cookies”)
Contact form and phone contact
If you use the contact form to contact us or if you contact us by phone, personal data (name, phone number and e-mail address as well as address data, if applicable) are only collected to the extent of the information you provide.
The information you provide will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your enquiry). Mandatory legal requirements – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of personal data, our website uses SSL encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line. This means that the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
However, we would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet can always have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
Disclosure of your data to third parties
Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties unless you have expressly consented separately to the passing on of personal data or we have justified reasons for doing so because of a court decision or by law.
In order to make your visit to our website safe, effective and attractive, so-called “cookies” may be used on our website. The installation of certain cookies is subject to your consent. When you visit our website for the first time, you will be asked if you agree to the installation of these cookies. They will only be activated if you agree. You can revoke your agreement at any time or have the option of preventing cookies from being stored on your computer by selecting the appropriate browser settings. However, we would like to point out that this may limit the functionality of our website.
Links to other websites
Our website contains links to websites operated and/or controlled by third parties. We recommend that you read the privacy statements of these third-party providers, as these may differ from our.
Information, modification and revocation
You can always obtain information which personal data we have stored. Subject to the relevant legal regulations, you have the right to let your personal data corrected, blocked or deleted. Please send your request by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you wish to get your personal data blocked or deleted, we must identify you in order to process your request as well as for our own protection. You are therefore requested to enclose a copy of an official identification document, such as your driving licence or identity card.
Our website is not intended for minors under the age of 18. Minors cannot submit any personal data without the consent of their guardian. If we are notified or otherwise discover that personal information of a minor has been collected, we will use reasonable efforts to delete such information.
