A different evaluation of the data, except for statistical purposes and then basically in an anonymous form, does not take place. No personal surfing profiles or similar are created or processed.

Contact details

In addition, personal data will be stored at most only if you provide them by themselves in our contact form or otherwise by e-mail for contacting us. The purpose of this survey is, then, to emerge from the context of the contact form and the content of the message which has been communicated to us, which is essentially determined by yourself. Since these data are not transmitted in encrypted form, you should only send us confidential messages by post! These personal data which you inform us about via our e-mail contact form or by e-mail to one of our contact addresses or by post (e.g. your name, your company, your telephone data or your e-mail address) will only be processed for correspondence with you and only for the purpose for which you provide us with this data. You are, of course, entitled to object to this use of your data at any time (see below). The information collected on this website remains for evaluation in our company and will be forwarded to the responsible employees. We assure that we will not disclose your personal data to third parties, unless we are legally obliged to do so or if you had previously given us your consent. To the extent that we use service providers for the execution and handling of processing processes, the contractual relations are regulated according to the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act. In particular, we ensure that in this case the third parties have been committed to data secrecy, and that all ten items from § 11 BDSG ( “processing of personal data on behalf of contractors”) are regulated by contract. Log files are usually only evaluated by the administrator for troubleshooting and fault analysis and are deleted no later than half a year.

Right of access

If you have left us personal data and are no longer satisfied with the storage of your data or if these have become incorrect, we will arrange for the deletion or blocking of your data or make the necessary corrections (if this is possible under applicable law). If you wish you will receive free of charge information about all personal data that we have stored about you by sending an informal message to us or to our data protection officer, Dr. Hans Daldrop (see below).

Storage of shared data

Otherwise, personal data that you have communicated to us via our website will only be stored until the purpose for which they have been entrusted to us, after which they will be deleted or at least blocked so that further use is no longer possible. If storage and tax retention periods are to be observed, the storage period for certain data may be up to 11 years.

Applicable law
