Thank you for your interest in our website. The protection of your privacy is very important to us. Below we inform you in detail about how we handle your data.

1. Access data and hosting

You can visit our websites without giving any personal information. Whenever you call up a website, the web server merely automatically saves a so-called server log file, which contains e.g. the name of the requested file, your IP address, date and time of the call, transferred data volume and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the call.
 
 ​​This access data is evaluated solely for the purpose of ensuring the trouble-free operation of the site and improving our online presence. In accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR, this serves to safeguard our predominantly legitimate interests in the correct presentation of our online presence in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR. All access data will be deleted at the latest seven days after the end of your visit to our website.

The services for hosting and displaying the website are partly provided by our service providers in the context of processing on our behalf. Unless otherwise stated in this data protection declaration, all access data and all data collected in forms provided for this purpose on this website are processed on their servers. If you have any questions about our service providers and the basis of our cooperation with them, please use the contact option described in this privacy policy. Our service providers are located in the USA. There is no adequacy decision by the European Commission for the USA. Our cooperation with you is based on the following guarantee: standard data protection clauses of the European Commission.

Content Delivery Network

For the purpose of a shorter loading time we use a so-called Content Delivery Network ("CDN") for some offers. With this service, content, e.g. large media files, is delivered via regionally distributed servers of external CDN service providers. Therefore, access data is processed on the servers of the service providers. Our service providers work for us within the scope of order processing. If you have any questions about our service providers and the basis of our cooperation with them, please use the contact option described in this privacy policy. Our service providers are located in the USA. There is no adequacy decision for the USA by the European Commission. Our cooperation with you is based on the following guarantee: standard data protection clauses of the European Commission.

2. Data collection and use when contacting

We collect personal data when you voluntarily provide us with this information when contacting us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail). Required fields are marked as such, since in these cases we need the data to process your contact and you cannot send the contact without providing it. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms. We use the data you provide to process your inquiries in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b GDPR. After complete processing of your inquiry, your data will be deleted, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a GDPR or we reserve the right to use your data for other purposes that are legally permitted and about which we inform you in this declaration.
