The operators of this website are the body responsible for collecting, processing and using your personal data for the purposes of the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG)). Personal data are individual details about your personal or material circumstances, particularly your name and address. In the following provisions, we shall inform you about the nature, scope and purposes of collecting and using your personal data on this website.

Use of Cookies

In order to make our website attractive to visit, we use what are known as cookies. Cookies are small text files which are saved on your computer and enable us to recognise your internet browser.

This means that any time content is accessed on our website, communications data are transmitted to our web server. These communications data include:

  • the IP address of the relevant user,
  • the browser type / browser version,
  • the date of access,
  • the referrer URL and
  • the host name of the computer gaining access.

These communications data are not used to draw conclusions about the identity of the user or combined with data from other sources, but rather facilitate the provision of the website. Some of the cookies we use are deleted at the end of the browser session (known as session cookies). By contrast, other cookies remain on your device and enable us or our partner companies to recognise your browser on your next visit (known as persistent cookies).

In general, you can delete cookies at any time using your browser’s privacy function. In this case, however, we would point out that some functions of our website may be not be fully usable.

Use of services and contents of third parties

It is possible that we use content and services of third parties on our homepage, e.g. maps by Google-Maps, RSS-feeds or grafics from other websites. This requires that the user’s IP address will be made accessible to the providers of these contents. Without the IP address it is not possible to send these contents to the browser of the respective user. Therefore the IP-address is necessary for the display of these contents. We endeavour to only use such contents, whose providers use the IP-address merely to deliver the content. It is though beyond our influence if third parties store the IP-address for statistical purposes. As far as we have knowledge about this, we will let the users know.

To realize a blocking of data, the data has to be stored in a file to serve the purpose of monitoring. If there is no legal archiving obgligation you can also demand the erasure of the data. If there is such an obligation, we will block the data at your will.
