The protection of your personal data is an important issue for us. “Privacy by default” is not only a sentence to us, it is lived practice. We always try to process your personal data under legal conditions (GDPR, DSG2018, TKG2003), if are no other jurisdictions abolish that.
Your personal data is processed according to Art. 6(1) of the GPDR and only for the following purposes:
If we need your approval for the legitimate processing of your data, we will obtain your approval before processing and inform you about the further usage of your data.
On this website there are email links in different areas (malito). These can be protected against spam, so that there is no visible email address in the plain text. Through this email address you can directly contact us electronically. This satisfies the legal requirement to offer you a possibility to directly contact us electronically. If you use this possibility, we process and store your data in accordance to the GPDR Art. 6(1). We delete inquiries, if they have no use anymore or if there is no legal archiving obligation. If you send an email to us, you agree to the processing and storage of your personal data.
You can subscribe to our free of charge newsletter. With the newsletter you get latest news about our company as well as customised advertising. To subscribe to our newsletter, you need a valid email address. The by you specified email address is checked by us with sending an email to you; the email provides a link to complete the subscription. After confirming the email address, you are subscribed for our newsletter (double opt-in). During the first subscription to our newsletter, we save your IP address with time and date. This happens because of safety reasons for the cause that a third person is abusing your email address and subscribes to the newsletter without your knowledge. Further data is not stored for newsletter subscription. The data is only used for the newsletter.
As newsletter software we are using MailChimp. Your data is transmitted to The Rocket Science Group LLC d/b/a MailChimp, 675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308 USA. It is prohibited that MailChimp sells your data or uses it for other purposes than sending newsletters.

Safeguarding of Legal Claims
The provider of websites as well as the CMS are collecting and storing data that are permitted by your browser at every visit of a website. The storing of data takes place in so called Server-Log-Files or in data base tables. Every record in the data base consists of time and date of the visit, the URL of the website, the retrieved file, the amount of sent data, the browser type and browser version, the operating system and the IP address of the user. Combined with other techniques and in conjunction with other data, a personal connection could be possible. But this is not a common practice; this is only used for safeguarding of legal claims or persecution of infringements.
Data that is provided by you for customer service or marketing and information purposes only, are deleted after three years after the last contact to us. We delete the data earlier, if there are no legal barriers and if you wish that. In case of contract initiation or conclusion of contract, we process your data from completing the conclusion of contract until the end of our guarantee period, limitation period and the legal retention period; also in case of possible legal disputes, where the data is needed as evidence.
All devices, that are used for data processing, are protected with a strong password. Operation systems and programs or apps, that are used for data processing, are kept current.
SSL / TLS Encryption
This website uses SSL/TSL encryption for safety reasons and for protection of the transmission of personal data. You can identify encrypted connections, when the address line of the browser switches from http:// to https:// and you see a padlock symbol in the address line.
When the SSL/TSL encryption is activated, your transmitted data cannot be read by a third party.

In a session cookie a random identification number, a so called session ID, is stored. Further the cookie contains a note about his origin and the storage period. These cookies can not save other data.
The placement of cookies does not allow us to see data on your computer. Session cookies are deleted automatically in the end of the session, this means with closing the browser.

We have activated the function of IP anonymisation on this website. Because of that, your IP address is shortened within the European Union and other contracting states of the agreement of the European Economic Area before it is transmitted in the USA. Only in exceptional cases the whole IP address is transmitted into the USA and then shortened there. On behalf of the website owners, Google will use that information to analyse the usage of the website and to create reports about the activity and to fulfil further services connected to the usage of the website and the internet. The IP address, that is within the scope of Google Analytics determined from your browser, will not be brought together by Google.
You can prohibit the placement of cookies in the settings of your browser software; but we point out that it could be possible that not all functions of the website can be used fully.
