As the operators of these websites, we take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.

Use of Data

The use of our website does not require the disclosure of personal data. Every time you access one of our pages, data about your visit to the website is stored in a log file. Our webhoster provides us with these log files and prepared usage statistics. This data is not personal, so we cannot trace which user has retrieved which data. A passing on to third parties does not take place.

We collect anonymous visitor information such as IP addresses, browser types, referring pages, pages visited and the time spent on the website. However, this information does not identify you as an individual, but only the computer used to visit this website. Since no personal information is collected from website visitors in this context, we cannot and will not link traffic analysis information with personal details such as name, age, telephone number or postal address. We do not exchange personal or collected statistical (group) data about the usage patterns of our website visitors with third parties.

We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

The special requirements for the collection, processing and use of special categories of personal data pursuant to article 9 GDPR and § 22 BDSG law are observed. According to the GDPR, the processing and handling of sensitive data is only permitted under the principle of the reservation of permission or upon submission of a legal basis.
