Data protection

We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. Your personal data is considered confidential and we respect data protection legislation as well as the present privacy statement

The usage of our website is for the most part possible without entering any personal information. If personal data is collected by our website (e.g. name, address, email address), as far as possible, this is done voluntarily. The data cannot be provided to third parties without your express authorisation.

We would like to point out that the transmission of data online (e.g. in emails) can be the object of security flaws. It is impossible to provide one hundred percent protection of your information from unauthorised access by third parties.


Server log files

The webpages’ provider automatically collects and saves information in what is known as a “server log file”, which your browser automatically transmits to us. They include the following:

  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server query

These data cannot be attributed to specific people. No connection is made between these data and other data sources. We reserve the right to examine these data at a later time if we have concrete indications of unlawful use.


SSL encryption

This page uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential contents, such as requests that you send to us as the webpage operator. An encrypted connection can be identified by “http://” and the lock symbol at the beginning of the address in the browser address.

If SSL encryption is activated, the data that you send to us cannot be accessed by third parties.


Advertising emails

The use of the contact data provided under the compulsory website publisher information by third parties for unsolicited sending of advertising and information material is prohibited. We expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited advertising such as spam emails and the like.
