We will now tell you in detail about how we handle your information.
Access details and hosting
You can visit our website without providing any information about yourself.

These access details are evaluated purely for the purpose of ensuring that the website works properly and for improving it. This, pursuant to Art. 6 Par. 1 Clause 1 lit. f GDPR, serves to assert our interest in displaying our website correctly, which is considered overridingly legitimate in the overall weighing of interests. All access details are deleted no later than seven days after the end of your session on our site.

This website uses Google Analytics, a Web analysis service provided by Google Inc (‘Google’).

Google Analytics uses “cookies” – text files stored on your computer to facilitate the analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Because IP-anonymity is activated on this website, your IP address will first be truncated by Google inside the member states of the European Union and in other states that are signatories to the European Economic Area treaty. Only in exceptional circumstances will the full IP address be sent to a Google server located in the USA, and truncated there.
Google Inc has its headquarters in the USA and is certified in compliance with the EU-US Privacy Shield. You will find the latest certificate here. On the basis of a treaty between the USA and European Commission, the latter has established an appropriate level of data protection for companies certified in compliance with the Privacy Shield.

There are many data processing activities that can only be done with your express consent. You can revoke consent you have given if reasons arise that pertain to your particular situation. An informal e-mail to us will suffice. Revoking your consent does not render illegal any data processing done up to that point.
If you exercise your right to revoke, your personal data will no longer be used for those purposes. This does not apply if it is being processed for direct marketing purposes.
