When you access our website, our servers automatically collect general information, particularly for the purpose of establishing a connection as well as ensuring functionality and system security. This includes the type of browser used, the operating system used, the domain name of the Internet service provider, the connection data of the computer used (IP address,) the website from which you visited our site (referrer URL,) the webpages you visit on our site, the search term if you came to our site via search engine, files that you downloaded from our site (e.g. PDF or Word documents) as well as the date, time and duration of your visit. It is impossible for us to trace these data back to specific people due to a pseudonymisation process. These data are not merged with other data sources. The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Contact Form
If you contact us via the contact form and choose to get in touch with us via e-mail, you must provide your first name and surname, your e-mail address and your message to us.

3. Deletion

Personal data are deleted or access to them is restricted as soon as the purpose of saving them no longer applies or you request that they be deleted. Data are also deleted if a saving period specified by the relevant standard has expired unless it is required they remain saved in order to conclude or fulfil a contract or if you have provided consent to this.

For example, this means your selection of a country or language is saved.

Some functions of our website cannot be accessed without the use of cookies. For these it is also necessary that the browser be recognised again after switching pages.

Through technical and organisational measures we protect our website and other systems from the loss, destruction, access to, modification or distribution of your data by unauthorised persons.

You have the right to revoke your legal data protection declaration of consent at any time. The revocation of consent will not affect the legality of the processing that has taken place as a result of consent up to the time of the revocation.
