Processing of personal data and their purpose
For technical reasons, the following data, which your Internet browser transmits to us or to our web space provider, are always recorded (so-called server log files):
- Browser type and version
- used operating system
- Website from which you visit us (Referrer URL)
- Website you visit
- Date and time of your access
- Your Internet Protocol (IP) address.
These anonymous data are stored separately from any personal information that you may provide and so do not allow any conclusions to be drawn about a particular person. The processing and temporary storage of the IP address is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user’s computer. The processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR based on our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website. A transfer or other use of the data does not take place. However, we reserve the right to retrospectively check the server logfiles should concrete evidence point to unlawful use.
Legal basis for the processing of personal data
The processing of personal data of our users takes place regularly after the consent of the user. An exception applies in cases in which prior consent is not possible for reasons of fact and we are permitted to process the data by law. The storage of data and logfiles is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption techniques (such as SSL) over HTTPS.

When contacting us (for example via contact form or e-mail), personal data is collected. Which data are collected in the case of a contact form can be seen from the respective contact form. These data are stored and used solely for the purpose of answering your request or for establishing contact and the associated technical administration. In this context, there is no disclosure of the data to third parties. The legal basis for processing the data is our legitimate interest in answering your request in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. If your contact is aimed at concluding a contract, then additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR.
The purpose of using cookies lies in the user-friendly design of our websites. The processing of personal data using cookies is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Cookies are stored on the user’s computer and transmitted from there to our websites. Users may disable or restrict the transmission of cookies by changing the settings of their Internet browser. Already saved cookies can be deleted at any time. If cookies are disabled for our websites, it may not be possible to use all functions of our websites to the full.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.

Use of reCAPTCHA
To protect entry forms on our site, we use the service „reCAPTCHA” of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereafter „Google”. Through the use of this service, it can be distinguished whether the corresponding input is of human origin or abused by automated machine processing.
To our knowledge, the referrer URL, the IP address, the behavior of the website visitors, information about the operating system, browser and duration, cookies, presentation instructions and scripts, the input behavior of the user and mouse movements in the „reCAPTCHA” checkbox to „Google ” transfer.
Among other things, Google uses this information to digitize books and other printed matter, as well as to optimize services such as Google Street View and Google Maps (eg house number and street name recognition).
The IP address submitted as part of „reCAPTCHA” will not be merged with any other data provided by Google unless you are logged in to your Google Account at the time you use the „reCAPTCHA” plug-in. If you want to prevent this transmission and storage of data about you and your behavior on our website by „Google”, you must log out of „Google” before you visit our site or use the reCAPTCHA plug-in.
When you sign up to receive our newsletter, the data you provide will be used exclusively for this purpose. Subscribers may also be notified by email about circumstances relevant to the service or registration (such as changes to the newsletter offer or technical conditions).
For an effective registration we need a valid e-mail address. In order to verify that an application is actually made by the owner of an e-mail address, we use the „Double opt-in” procedure. For this purpose we record the order of the newsletter, the dispatch of a confirmation mail and the receipt of the requested answer. Further data is not collected. The data will be used exclusively for the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.
