Data Protection Statement (Status 2018)
As a user of our website, in this data protection statement you will receive all the necessary information on how, to what extent and for what purpose we or third parties collect and use data from you. The collection and use of your data is strictly in accordance with the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG). We are particularly committed to the confidentiality of your personal information and therefore work strictly within the limits set by law. The collection of this personal data is done on a voluntary basis, if this is possible for us. Also, we only pass this data on to third parties with your express consent. We ensure high security for particularly confidential data as well as for your enquiries to us through the use of SSL encryption. However, at this point, we would like to take the opportunity to point out the general dangers of use of the Internet over which we have no influence. Especially in e-mail communications, your data is not safe without further precautions and may, under certain circumstances, be obtained by third parties.
Personal data is only collected if you provide it to us voluntarily, e. g. in the context of registration, or by completing forms.
However, we do not use your data for advertising, market research or user profiling purposes unless we your express consent. In this case too, however, you are entitled to revoke this consent at any time. Otherwise, use of the data would be permitted at most in anonymous form, so that no conclusions can be drawn as regards the respective data subject.
This also applies if you register for a service within our website and provide information about yourself. In this case, too, we only use your data as far as necessary to carry out this service. In addition, you may object to the further use of your data at any time.
Information, Cancellation, Blocking
You will receive free information regarding the personal data we have stored about you at any time, as well as regarding the origin, recipient and purpose of the data collection and data processing. In addition, you are entitled to request the correction, blocking or deletion of your data. This does not apply to data stored on the basis of legal regulations or which is required for the proper conduct of business. So that a data block can be carried out at any time, data is held available for control purposes in a blocked file. If data is not included in a legal archiving obligation, we will delete your data at your request. If the archiving obligation takes effect, we will block your data. For all queries and concerns regarding the correction, blocking or deletion of personal data, please contact our data protection officer using the contact data in this data protection statement or the address indicated in the imprint.
Collection of Access Data
The delivery and presentation of content via our website technically requires the collection of certain data. When you access our website these server log files are recorded by us. These log files do not allow any conclusion as regards you and your person. The corresponding information consists of the name of the website, the file, the current date, the amount of data, the web browser and its version, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet provider, the referrer URL as the page from which you have switched to our site, as well as the corresponding IP address. We use this data for the presentation and delivery of our content as well as for statistical purposes. The information supports the provision and continuous improvement of our offer. We also reserve the right to examine the data mentioned retrospectively, should we suspect an illegal use of our offer.
You can register a subscription for our newsletter on our website. We need your e-mail address for this. In addition, we must verify that you are the owner of the given e-mail address and wish to receive the newsletter, in compliance with the relevant legal regulations. We therefore collect information that makes such verification possible. The data collected in this context is used for sending and receiving the newsletter. It has a different purpose and will not be shared with third parties. Since the sending and receiving of the newsletter depends on your consent, you can revoke this consent to the collection and storage of your data at any time without giving reasons. Use the “unsubscribe link” provided in the newsletter.
In the context of data avoidance and data minimisation, we collect personal data only to the extent and for as long as it is necessary for the use of our website or as required by law. We take the protection of your personal data seriously and adhere strictly to the relevant legal provisions and to this data protection statement when collecting and processing personal data. If the purpose of the data collection no longer applies or the end of the legal storage period is reached, the collected data will be blocked or deleted. Our website can be used on a regular basis without the transfer of personal data. When we collect personal information – such as your name, address or e-mail address – this data collection is voluntary. This information will not be disclosed to third parties without your explicit consent. Please note that data on the Internet is generally not always transmitted securely. Especially in e-mail communications, protection during data exchange cannot be guaranteed.
Our website uses SSL encryption for the transmission of confidential or personal content of our users. This encryption is activated, for example, for requests that you make to us through our website. Please make sure that SSL encryption is activated for corresponding activities from your side. The use of encryption is easy to recognise: the display in your browser line changes from “http://” to “https://”. SSL encrypted data is not readable by third parties. Submit your confidential information only with activated SSL encryption and contact us in case of doubt.

We also use functions of the microblogging service Twitter on our website. The operator of Twitter is Twitter Inc. The US company is based in the United States, San Francisco, CA 94103, 1355 Market St, Suite 900. The main function of Twitter is the “tweet function”. If you use this via our website, you will be linked to your Twitter account. Data exchange with other users may take place and data may be transferred to Twitter. We are not aware of the content of the data sent to Twitter, nor are we informed about its use. Find out about these matters at http://twitter.com/privacy, where you will find Twitter’s detailed data protection statement. Furthermore, the platform offers you the opportunity to design your own data protection settings via http://twitter.com/account/settings.
