PRIVACY POLICY


Privacy Policy

Dear visitor of our website, we are pleased about your interest in our company and, as we take the protection of personal data seriously, we would like to inform you in detail about how we deal with personal data, so that you always feel comfortable and safe when visiting our website.

Collection of personal data on our website

Our website is only used to provide information about our company. When you visit our website, no personal data is collected. Only the data that is transmitted from your browser to our server is collected. This data is necessary to display our website correctly and make navigation easier for you. Furthermore, this data is evaluated for statistical purposes (e.g. which IP address was called up at what time). The legal basis for data collection is Article 6 Para 1 f) EU General Data Protection Regulation. The following data is collected when you visit our website:

  • IP address
  • browser type plus language and version
  • operating system and its interface
  • access status/ HTTP status code
  • date and time of the retrieval, as well as the time zone
  • content of the request and website from which it comes
  • data volume transferred

On the contact page you can enter personal data such as your name, email address and telephone number. The data you provide to us will only be used for correspondence with you if you actively contact us.

The data mentioned above will be erased if no longer required.

Contact form / e-mail contact

If you send us appointment requests or inquiries via the contact form on our website, the data you provide (e-mail address, name, telephone number) will be stored so that we can answer your questions. This data will be erased as soon as the processing purpose no longer applies and no statutory or legal duties of retention oppose the erasure. This data will not be shared with third parties. The transmission is encrypted. IT experts often tell people not to email anything they wouldn’t write on a postcard. Therefore, please do not send us any confidential information / data by e-mail or via the contact form on the website, but rather contact us by regular mail or phone. Please understand that we do not accept liability for unsolicited data / emails.

The disclosure of this data is voluntary and on the basis of your consent. Provided that this information relates to communication channels (e.g. email address, telephone number), you further agree that we may contact you via this communication channel in order to answer your request.

Of course, you may withdraw your consent at any time. Please contact our data protection officer, whose contact details can be found below.

Handling of personal data

Personal data is information that can be used to identify a person, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person. This includes, for example, the name, the e-mail address or the telephone number. Personal data is only collected, used and passed on by us if this is permitted by law or the user has consented to data collection.

Collection of access data / server log files

The delivery and display of content via our website requires the collection of certain data for technical reasons. With your access to our website these so-called server log files are recorded by us or the provider of the web space. The relevant information consists of the name of the website, the file, the current date, the amount of data, the web browser and its version, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet provider, the referrer URL as the page from which you have switched to our site, as well as the corresponding IP address. These log files do not allow any conclusion to you and your person. We use this data to display and deliver our content as well as for statistical purposes, for the purpose of operation, security, and for the constant improvement of our offer. We also reserve the right to examine the data mentioned retroactively, should the suspicion of an illegal use of our offer exist.

Third party content and services

The offer on our website may also include content, services and benefits from other providers that supplement our offer. This is done by so-called plugins. These are software extensions or additional modules that expand the functions of our website. Examples of such offers are maps from Google Maps, YouTube videos or graphics from third parties. Calling these services from a third party regularly requires the transmission of your IP address. This enables these providers to perceive your user IP address and to store it. We make every effort to only include third-party providers who use IP addresses solely to deliver the content. However, we have no influence on which third-party provider may save the IP address. This storage can be used for statistical purposes, for example. Should we become aware of storage processes by third-party providers, we will immediately inform our users of this fact in this data protection declaration. In this context, please also note the following special data protection declarations for individual third-party providers and service providers whose services we use on our website. You will also find them in this data protection declaration.

Google Analytics

On our website we use Google Analytics. Google Analytics is a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. Google uses cookies. The information generated by cookies, about the use of the website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google uses this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online offer and to provide us with other services associated with the use of this online offer and the Internet. We have added the code "anonymizeIP" to Google Analytics. This means the IP address of Google's users within member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area will be shortened beforehand. The full IP address is only transferred in exceptional cases to a server of Google in the USA and truncated there. The code extension "anonymizeIp" cuts the last 8 bits of the user's IP address. By using this code, only a rough localization of the user is possible. The IP address transmitted by the user's browser is not merged with other Google data. By changing your browser settings, you can prevent cookies from being stored. However, this may result in display and functional restrictions when using our website. You can also prevent Google from collecting and using the data generated through cookies related to your use of the online offer by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. You can avoid the collection by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. It sets an opt out cookie which prevents the future collection of your data when visiting our website: http://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/gajs/?hl=de#disable. Further information on data use by Google, settings and options for objection can be found on the Google website ("How Google uses information from sites or apps that use our services"): https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites?hl=en. Google's privacy policy and terms of use can be found at: http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads ("advertising").

Google Web Fonts

For uniform representation of fonts, this website uses web fonts provided by Google. When you open a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.

For this purpose, your browser has to establish a connection to the Google servers. Google thus becomes aware that our website was accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web fonts is done in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of our online offers. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Article 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer.

Further information on Google Web Fonts can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google's privacy policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

Cookies

In addition to this data, we also use cookies on our website. These are small text files that are stored on your computer (in your browser) from our website. The cookies are stored on your browser in order to provide you with a more personalized and optimized service next time when you visit our website again. Cookies are not viruses and cannot install malware or spy programs on the host computer. They are short texts that are exchanged between the web server and browser.

Transiente cookies (session cookies)

As a result, your computer can be recognized when you return to our website. When you close your browser, these cookies are also automatically erased.

Persistent cookies (time-limited cookies)

These cookies differ from transient cookies only in that they are not automatically deleted when the browser is closed, but only after a preset time. However, you can delete these cookies at any time via the settings of your browser. You may disable the use of cookies through appropriate settings in your browser; however, please note that if you do so, you may not be able to fully use all features on our website.

Objection to advertising emails

In the context of the legal obligation to provide imprint information, we must publish our contact details. These are partially used by third parties to send unwanted information and advertising material. We hereby object to any sending of advertising material of any kind not expressly authorized by us. We also expressly reserve the right to take legal action against the undesired and unsolicited sending of advertising material. This applies in particular to so-called spam emails, spam letters and spam faxes. We would like to point out that unauthorized transmission of advertising material may have consequences under competition, civil as well as criminal law. Spam e-mails and spam faxes in particular can lead to high claims for damages on our part if they disrupt operations due to overfilling mailboxes or fax machines.
