Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in our company and in our products. In this context, we respect your privacy and guarantee the protection of your personal data by collecting, processing and using your personal data in compliance with the contents of this privacy notice as well as with the applicable data protection laws.

You can visit our websites without having to tell us who you are. In order to be able to display our websites, you only have to provide us with the data sent to our server by your browser (see “Log files”). Other personal data regarding you will only be collected by us if you voluntarily enter said data on the website or use corresponding functions, e.g. in the event of submissions via our contact form or when registering for our newsletter.

Newsletter and contact

When you subscribe to our electronic newsletter, you agree to the storage of your name and your e-mail address for the purpose of sending the newsletter (Art. 6 clause 1 first sentence letter a GDPR). These data are not disclosed to third parties. You can revoke your consent to the newsletter at any point with effect for the future and thus terminate the newsletter subscription (notice in the newsletter).

You can enter your personal data on our website in order to get in touch with us. Only the information marked with an asterisk is compulsory. Entering your name, the name of your company and your e-mail address is always required. The disclosure of any further data may be helpful for processing your request, but is not mandatory (voluntary information). These data will, with your consent, only be used and stored for processing your message (Art. 6 clause 1 first sentence letter a GDPR). Any use for any other purpose, or any disclosure to third parties will not take place, unless you explicitly agree to said use or disclosure (consent). 

Cookies

Cookies are very small text files used by Internet browsers which your browser can store on your computer and through which the entity that places the cookies (in this case we) can gather certain types of information. Cookies cannot run programmes or transfer viruses to your computer. 

Transient cookies are deleted automatically when you close the browser. This includes session cookies in particular. These store a so-called session ID, with which the various requests of your browser can be matched to the joint session. This allows recognition of your computer when you return to our website. The session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.

Persistent cookies are deleted automatically after a set period of time, which may vary from cookie to cookie. You may delete cookies at any time in the safety settings of your browser.

This information serves the purpose of optimising our offer and making your surfing experience on our website more comfortable. The legal basis for this type of data processing is Art. 6 clause 1 first sentence letter f GDPR.

You can change the settings of your Internet browser in such a manner that you will always be notified once a web server wants to send a cookie to your computer. In this case, you can either agree to the cookie being accepted, or else reject such acceptance. You can configure your browser settings according to your needs and you may, for example, object to the placement of third-party cookies or all cookies. Please note that you may not be able to use all functions of this website if you do so. More information concerning this can be found in the help system of your Internet browser.

Apart from that, the status and the amount of data transferred within the framework of said request will be collected, but also product and version information on the browser used, as well as on the operating system of your computer. Furthermore, we will also record the web page you used to access our website. In this context, the IP address of your computer will be saved only for the period during which you use the website and will be deleted immediately thereafter or anonymised by way of shortening.

We will use this data to operate our website, in particular to detect and fix errors on the website, to determine web page load and to make adjustments or carry out improvements (legal basis: Art. 6 clause 1 first sentence letter f GDPR).

The statistical information that is collected helps us to improve our content and to make it more interesting for you as user. The legal basis for the use of Matomo is Art. 6 clause 1 first sentence letter f GDPR.

Cookies are stored on your computer for this analysis. The information collected in this manner is stored by the responsible entity on their servers only. You can prevent this analysis by deleting any cookies already placed and by prohibiting the storage of cookies.

This website uses Matomo with the extension “AnonymizeIP”. This extension processes a shortened version of IP addresses, so that a direct link to individuals is excluded. The IP address transmitted by your browser via Matomo is not combined with other data collected by us. Please see here for the privacy policy of Matomo https://matomo.org/privacy/.

Embedded third-party content (e.g. Google Maps, YouTube etc.)

Where our websites display third-part content such as Google Maps, YouTube or Vimeo, this content can only be made available and can only be displayed in your browser following the transmission of your IP address and the content specified under “Log Files” to the third-party provider. We have no influence on data processing undertaken by the third-party provider. If you are registered with a user account with the third-party provider, the third-party provider may be able to link your user behaviour with your user account. Where applicable, the third-party provider may store your data as user profiles and may use these for advertisement, market research and/or customised design of their websites. Any rights to objection to the creation of such user profiles must be asserted towards the third-party provider.

Please see the privacy policy of the third-party provider for more information about purpose and scope of data collection by the third-party provider. There, you will also find further information regarding your rights and options for settings in order to protect your privacy: 

Revocation of consent and objection to data processing

If you granted consent towards us, you may withdraw any such consent at any time with effect for the future. 

Where we base the processing of your personal data on balancing of interest, you may object to processing. When lodging such objection, we would like to ask you to state reasons as to why we should refrain from processing your personal data in the way we do. In case of a justified objection on your part, we will review the situation and will either cease or adjust processing that data or will inform you of our mandatory reasons worthy of protection based on which we continue with processing.
