Privacy Policy

We collect and use your personal data solely within the scope of the provisions of the data protection legislation of the Federal Republic of Germany. The following information explains the nature, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data.

Collecting and processing of information

Each access to our website and each download of a file deposited on this website will be logged. Data is stored for internal system-related and statistical purposes only. We record: Name of the recalled file, date and time of the recall, transferred data quantity, notice about successful recall, web browser and requesting domain. Additionally, the IP addresses of the requesting computer are recorded. Further personal data are only recorded, if agreed by the user of the web site and/or customer while making an inquiry or a registration statement voluntarily, for the conclusion of a contract or for an adjustment of their browser.

When establishing contact with the provider (for example via the contact form or e-mail) the data given by the user is saved in order to process the request and in case any further questions should arise later on.

When users leave comments or other contributions, their IP addresses are stored. This is done for security of the provider, if someone unlawfully writes comments and posts content (insults, banned political propaganda, etc.). In this case the provider can even be prosecuted for the comments or posts of the services users and is therefore interested in the identity of the author.

Our website uses cookies. A cookie is a text file that is sent when visiting a website, and is stored temporarily on the hard drive of the user of the website and/or customer.

If the corresponding server for our website is called up by the user of the website and/or customer, the user’s and/or customer’s website browser sends the previously received cookie back to the server.

The user of the website and/or customer has the right to revoke a given consent, with effect for the future, at anytime.

Deletion of the stored personal data takes place if the user of the web site and/or customer revokes the consent to the storage, if the information about the fulfillment of a contract is no longer necessary or if the storage is inadmissible for other legal reasons. Data for billing purposes and bookkeeping purposes is not affected by a requested data deletion.
