Collection of general information when you visit our website
When you visit our website, general information is automatically collected using a cookie. This information (in server log files) may include the type of web browser and operating system you are using, your internet service provider’s domain name and similar. None of this information allows your identity to be traced.
These items of information are necessary for technical reasons so that any website content you request is delivered properly, and their creation is an inevitable part of using the internet. The information is used for the following purposes, without limitation:
Your personal data is processed because of our legitimate interest in collecting data for the above purposes. We will not use your data to trace your identity. The only recipients of the data are employees of the responsible entity and contract processors, as the case may be.
We may use anonymous information of this kind for statistical analysis to improve our website and the technology behind it.
Like many other websites, we use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your hard drive by a website server. This automatically gives us certain data including your IP address, the browser and operating system you use, and your internet connection.
Cookies cannot be used to start programs or transfer viruses to a computer. With the information contained in cookies, we can make navigation easier for you and make sure our websites are displayed properly.
We will never forward the data we collect to third parties and will never link that information to personal data without your consent.
We use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS to protect the security of your data during transmission.
The information generated by the cookies about your website usage is stored on a server in Germany.
The IP address is anonymised immediately after processing and before it is stored. You can stop cookies from being installed by changing your browser software settings. We wish to point out that you may not be able to use all the features of this website if you change your settings in this way.
You can decide whether to permit a unique web analytics cookie to be placed in your browser that will enable the website provider to collect and analyse various statistics.
Updating of our data protection policy
We reserve the right to modify this data protection statement to keep it up to date with the latest legal requirements or to implement changes in our services in the data protection statement, for example when we launch new services. The new data protection statement then applies the next time you visit.
