Data Protection

General Information

We welcome your visit to our internet pages and your interest in our company. It is our aim to offer you the best possible service. This includes continual optimization of our internet presence and, naturally, the protection of your data.

When you visit our internet site, our server automatically records data that is not associated with any personal identity. Such data may include, for example, the domain name and IP address of the requesting computer, the access date, the duration of your visit, or the website from which you are visiting us. These data are usually collected for the purpose of system security and to continually optimize our site and services. The evaluation is carried out purely statistically.

Other personal data, such as your name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address, are not recorded unless you expressly communicate this information to us (e.g. through the contact form or by e-mail). Of course, if that is the case, we will only collect, process or use your data for the purposes specified or the resulting purposes, unless disclosure is required under applicable law. We only use them for other purposes (e.g. advertising or market and opinion research) if you have given us your express consent to such use.

Please be aware that there are inherent security risks in transmitting data via the internet for which we are not responsible. Transferring data by e-mail, in particular, carries the risk of third party access.
