The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data. Personal data, such as names, addresses or email addresses, are always provided on a voluntary basis when possible. Those data will not be passed on to third parties without your explicit permission.
However, we would like to point out that data transmissions via internet (e.g email communication) cannot be entirely secure and may have security vulnerabilities. A complete protection of personal details against unauthorised access by third parties is not possible.
This website partially uses so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies allow us to make our product more user-friendly, more efficient and more secure. Cookies are small text files, stored by your browser on your computer.
Most cookies that we use are so-called “session cookies”. They will be deleted automatically after the end of your visit. Other cookies remain on your terminal device until you delete them. Those cookies enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit.
You can adjust your browser to inform you when cookies are placed, to individually allow cookies, or to generally exclude cookies in certain cases, as well as to activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. The deactivation of cookies may impair the functionality of this website.
The provider of these websites automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files which your browser automatically transmits to us, such as:
- browser type/version
- used operating system
- referrer URL
- host name of the accessing computer
- time of query
Those data cannot be associated with individual persons. We do not merge this data with other sources. We reserve the right to retrospectively check the data if there is any indication of illegal use.
Comment function on this website
For the comment function on this website, your comment as well as details provided at the time of commenting, your email address and, unless you post anonymously, the chosen username will be stored.
Storage of the IP address
Our comment function stores IP addresses of users who post comments. Since we do not check the comments before publishing on our website, we require access to these data should the need arise for legal action against the originator in the case of violation of law, i.e. insults or propaganda.
For security reasons, and to protect the transmission of confidential data, such as enquiries you send to us as the provider, this website uses an SSL encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the change in the address line of the browser from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock-symbol in your browser address line.
When the SSL encryption is activated, the data you have transmitted to us cannot be accessed by third parties.
