Data protection

We are pleased that you are interested in our website and company.

Protecting your personal data in the course of its collection, processing and use during your visit to the website is important to us. Your data are protected in compliance with statutory regulations.

1. Access data

Every visit to our homepage and every download of a file stored on the homepage is logged for statistical purposes. In addition to the name of the downloaded file or page, the date and time of access, the web browser (type/version), the linking URL (referrer), and the IP address of the requesting computer are also logged.

2. Google Analytics

This website also uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files which are stored on your computer and enable analysis of the use of a website by yourself. The information generated by the cookie on your use of this website (including your IP address) is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and saved there. Google will use this information to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity for website owners, and provide further services relating to website and internet use. Google will, in cases, also transmit this information to third parties, to the extent required by law or if third parties handle these data on behalf of Google. In no case will Google associate your IP address with other Google data. You can prevent the installation of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser software; however, you are advised that in this case you may not be able to make use of the full functionality of this website. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data collected by Google about you by the means and purposes described above. Permission to collect and store data can be rescinded at any time for all future visits. In view of the debate surrounding the use of analytical tools with complete IP addresses, we would like to advise you that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_gat._anonymizeIp” and IP addresses are consequently further processed only in abbreviated form to prevent transmission of any information directly identifying particular individuals.

3. Transmission of data

Your data will only be passed on to third parties if this is required in order to fulfill a contract – in particular for orders with suppliers – or for invoicing purposes, or you have given your prior consent. You may revoke your consent at any time.

4. Deletion of data

Stored data are deleted if you revoke your consent for them to be stored, if they are no longer required to serve the purpose of their storage, or if their storage is illegal for other statutory reasons.

5. Right to information

We will be pleased to provide you with information on your personal data stored by us. Please submit your request to us in writing.

Note on security

By using all the technical and organizational capabilities available to us, we make every effort to store your personal data in such a way that they are not accessible to third parties. Please note that information transmitted by e-mail can in principle be viewed by anyone. We recommend that you only send us confidential information by post.
