Definitions of the terms used (e.g. "personal data" or "processing") can be found in Art. 4 DSGVO.
Automatic data storage
When you visit websites nowadays, certain information is automatically created and stored, including on this website.
When you visit our website as you are doing right now, our web server (computer on which this website is stored) automatically stores data such as
- the address (URL) of the visited web page
- browser and browser version
- the operating system used
- the address (URL) of the previously visited page (referrer URL)
- the host name and IP address of the device from which access is made
- the date and time
in files (web server log files).
As a rule, web server log files are stored for two weeks and then automatically deleted. We do not pass on this data, but we cannot rule out the possibility that this data may be viewed in the event of unlawful behavior. The evaluation of the collected data is usually anonymous and we cannot infer your person from your behavior on this website.
If you want to find out which cookies have been stored in your browser, if you want to change or delete cookie settings, you can find it in your browser settings:
Chrome: Delete, enable and manage cookies in Chrome.
Safari: Manage cookies and website data with Safari.
Firefox: Delete cookies to remove data that websites have placed on your computer
Internet Explorer: delete and manage cookies
Microsoft Edge: Delete and manage cookiesIf you generally don't want cookies, you can set your browser to notify you whenever a cookie is about to be set. This way, for each individual cookie, you can decide whether or not to allow the cookie. The procedure varies depending on the browser. The best way is to search the instructions in Google with the search term "delete cookies Chrome" or "disable cookies Chrome" in case of a Chrome browser or replace the word "Chrome" with the name of your browser, e.g. Edge, Firefox, Safari.
What about my privacy?
Since 2009, there are the so-called "Cookie Guidelines". This states that storing cookies requires consent from you. Within the EU countries, however, there are still very different reactions to these directives. In Germany, the Cookie Directives have not been implemented as national law. Instead, this directive was largely implemented in Section 15 (3) of the German Telemedia Act (TMG).
If you want to know more about cookies and are not afraid of technical documentation, we recommend https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6265, the Request for Comments of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) called "HTTP State Management Mechanism".
Storage of personal data
If you send us personal data by e-mail - thus away from this website - we cannot guarantee secure transmission and protection of your data. We recommend that you never send confidential data by e-mail without encryption.
According to Article 6(1)(a) DSGVO (lawfulness of processing), the legal basis is that you give us consent to process the data you have sent us. You can revoke this consent at any time - an informal e-mail is sufficient, you will find our contact details in the imprint.
Rights according to the Basic Data Protection Regulation
According to the provisions of the DSGVO, you are generally entitled to the following rights:
- Right to rectification (Article 16 DSGVO).
- Right to erasure ("right to be forgotten") (Article 17 DSGVO)
- Right to restriction of processing (Article 18 DSGVO)
- Right to notification - obligation to notify in connection with the rectification or erasure of personal data or the restriction of processing (Article 19 GDPR)
- Right to data portability (Article 20 GDPR)
- Right to object (Article 21 GDPR)
- Right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing - including profiling (Article 22 GDPR).
If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or your data protection rights have otherwise been violated in any way, you can contact the Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information (BfDI).
TLS encryption with https
We use https to transmit data tap-proof on the Internet (data protection by design of technology Article 25(1) DSGVO). By using TLS (Transport Layer Security), an encryption protocol for secure data transmission on the Internet, we can ensure the protection of confidential data. You can recognize the use of this protection of data transmission by the small lock symbol at the top left of the browser and the use of the scheme https (instead of http) as part of our Internet address.
