The protection and safety of personal data is of utmost importance to us. Therefore we strictly adhere to the regulations of the German Data Protection Act (BDSG). In the following you will find information on what type of data we collect and for what purposes we collect it:
Data transmission / data logging: When you visit our website, the webserver automatically records log files that cannot be correlated with one particular person. This data includes, e.g., the browser type and version, the operating system used, the referrer URL (the website previously visited), the IP address of the requesting computer, access date and time of the server request and the client’s file request (file name and URL). This data is collected for the purpose of statistical analysis only; it is not disclosed to third parties, whether for commercial or for non-commercial purposes.
Usage of personal data: Personal data will be collected and stored only if you provide this information on a voluntary basis, e.g. during a request for quote. Unless the data is required for performing any business transaction, you may at any time revoke your previous consent regarding the storing of your personal data with immediate effect (e.g. by email or by fax). Your data will not be disclosed to third parties, unless such transfer is required under statutory rules and regulations.
Information, amendment and deletion of your data: Under applicable law you may, at any time and in writing, request information from us on whether we keep any personal data stored about you and what personal data we keep stored. We will promptly provide the relevant information to you.
Safety of your data: The personal data you provide to us will be safeguarded by all technical and organizational safety measures in such a way that they are inaccessible to unauthorized third parties. For sending highly sensitive data or information, it is recommended to do so by post as full data security via email cannot be ensured.
Google Analytics information: This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so called “cookies”, i.e. text files that are stored on your computer and enable analysis of how you use our website. The information created by the cookie regarding your use of this website (including your IP address) is transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the USA. Google will use this information to analyse how you use the website, to compile reports on the website activities for the website operators and to provide further services related to website use and Internet use. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if such transfer is required by law or to the extent that third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Google will in no case correlate your IP address with any other Google data. You may prevent cookies from being installed by making a corresponding setting in your browser software; however, we must advise you that in this case you may not be able to make full use of all functionalities of this website. By using this website you agree to the processing of the data collected about you by Google in the manner described and for the purpose mentioned.
Cookies: On some of our pages we use so called “session cookies”” to facilitate the use of our website for you. These are small text files that are placed on your hard disk for the duration of your visit on our website only and are deleted when you close your browser, depending on the settings in your browser programme. These cookies do not access any information stored about you on your hard disk and do not affect your PC or your files. Most browsers are configured such that they accept cookies automatically. You may, however, disable the storing of cookies or set your browser in such a way that it will notify you when cookies are sent.
SSL encryption: In order to ensure the security of your data during transfer, we use the respective state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.
Using script libraries (Google Webfonts): In order to have our contents displayed correctly and in a graphically appealing manner, irrespective of which browser you are using, we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google Webfonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/) on this website. Google Webfonts are stored in the cache of your browser to avoid multiple loading. If your browser does not support Google Webfonts or prevents access to them, contents will be displayed in a standard font.
Wordfence: On this website we use the Wordfence WordPress plugin for the purpose of increasing website security. Hence the legal basis for processing your data is our legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, as we would like to offer a secure and permanently available Internet presence. The provider of the service is Defiant Inc., 800 5th Ave., Suite 4100, Seattle, WA 98104, USA. In connection with using Wordfence, a data transfer of IP addresses to the USA cannot be entirely ruled out; under the GDPR the USA are considered a third-party state with an insecure data protection level. We as the website operators have no knowledge of the contents of the data transmitted or of their utilization by Wordfence. According to the present state of knowledge, Wordfence is undergoing the necessary application and certification procedure to come under the EU-US Privacy Shield in the future and thus to be declared in line with European data privacy law. You can find additional information on this issue in the Wordfence privacy terms at: https://www.wordfence.com/privacy-policy/ .
