Collection of general information when visiting our website
When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected by means of a cookie. This information (server log files) includes the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider and similar. This is exclusively information that does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person.
This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the content you have requested from websites and is mandatory when using the Internet. In particular, they are processed for the following purposes:

The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest in the aforementioned data collection purposes. We do not use your data to draw conclusions about your person. Recipients of the data are only the responsible body and, if necessary, the processor.
Anonymous information of this type may be statistically evaluated by us in order to optimize our website and the technology behind it.
Like many other websites, we also use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are transferred to your hard drive by a website server. As a result, we automatically receive certain data, e.g. B. IP address, browser used, operating system and your connection to the Internet.
Cookies cannot be used to start programs or deliver viruses to a computer. Based on the information contained in cookies, we can make navigation easier for you and enable our websites to be displayed correctly.
Under no circumstances will the data we collect be passed on to third parties or be linked to personal data without your consent.
Provision of paid services
In order to provide services that are subject to a charge, we will ask for additional data, such as payment details, in order to be able to carry out your order. We store this data in our systems until the statutory retention periods have expired.
If you contact us via e-mail or the contact form with questions of any kind, give us your voluntary consent for the purpose of establishing contact. This requires the specification of a valid e-mail address. This is used to allocate the request and then to answer it. Providing further data is optional. The information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing the request and for possible follow-up questions. After the request you have made has been dealt with, personal data will be automatically deleted.
Use of Matomo Analytics
Matomo Analytics is a web analytics service. We use this platform in order to measure, collect, analyse and report visitors data for purposes of understanding and optimizing the website. We may analyse the behaviour of website visitors to identify potential pitfalls or problems with the website such as broken links, not found pages, search engine indexing, security issues or other administrative purposes. This information helps us to carry out improvements like changing the layout of web pages, publishing some fresh content etc. The processing of personal data on this website is based on legitimate interests. The personal data received through Matomo is only used by us and our web hosting service provider, which is hosted within the EU in Germany or Ireland. We do not sell this data. Website visitor behaviour is anonymised – we anonymise IP addresses and full IP address is NOT stored. Data retention is set for 14 months.
Use of Google Maps
This website uses Google Maps API to visually display geographic information. When using Google Maps, Google also collects, processes and uses data about the use of the map functions by visitors. You can find more information about data processing by Google in the Google data protection information. There you can also change your personal data protection settings in the data protection center.
Detailed instructions for managing your own data in connection with Google products can be found here.
Social plugins from the providers listed below are used on our websites. You can recognize the plugins by the fact that they are marked with the corresponding logo.
Information, which may also include personal data, may be sent to the service provider via these plugins and may be used by them. We prevent the unconscious and unwanted collection and transmission of data to the service provider with a 2-click solution. In order to activate a desired social plugin, it must first be activated by clicking on the corresponding button. The collection of information and its transmission to the service provider is only triggered by this activation of the plugin. We do not collect any personal data ourselves using the social plugins or their use.
We have no influence on which data an activated plugin collects and how this is used by the provider. It must currently be assumed that a direct connection to the provider’s services will be established and at least the IP address and device-related information will be recorded and used. There is also the possibility that the service provider will try to save cookies on the computer used. Which specific data is collected and how it is used can be found in the data protection information of the respective company
service provider. Note: If you are logged into Facebook at the same time, Facebook can identify you as a visitor to a specific page.
We have integrated the social media buttons of the following companies on our website:
We reserve the right to adapt this data protection declaration so that it always corresponds to the current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services. The new data protection declaration will then apply to your next visit.
