2. Purpose and legal basis of the processing of personal data
2.1. When calling up/visiting our website
During the merely informational use of our website, i.e. when you do not contact us via the contact data provided on the website, we only collect the data that your browser transmits to our server.
This is the following data, which is necessary to display our website to you and to ensure stability and security: IP address, date and time of the request, content of the request (specific page), access status/HTTP status code, amount of data transferred in each case, website from which the request comes, browser, operating system and its interface, language and version of the browser software.
It is not possible for us to draw conclusions about individual persons on the basis of this data. We store this data for reasons of technical security, e.g. to defend against attacks on our web server. After seven days at the latest, the data is anonymized by shortening the IP address at domain level, so that it is no longer possible to establish a link to the individual website user. The legal basis for the processing described above is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO (processing is necessary to protect the legitimate interests of the controller).
2.2. Contacting us
When you contact us by e-mail, the data you provide (your e-mail address and name as well as the content of your inquiry) will be stored by us in order to process and respond to your questions or request.
We delete the data accruing in this context after storage is no longer necessary (usually after your request has been fully dealt with), or restrict processing if there are legal obligations to retain data. The legal basis for the aforementioned processing is Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO (processing is necessary to protect the legitimate interests of the controller). We have a legitimate interest in answering emails from interested parties/website visitors
3. Use of Google Analytics
Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. 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. To protect your privacy, we use the IP anonymization function. This means that your IP address is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transferred to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google.
You can revoke the storage of cookies by Google by changing your cookie settings at any time with effect for the future.
You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: www.tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
For more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by Google, please see the overview of data protection:
4. obligation to provide personal data
You are neither legally nor contractually obligated to provide personal data about yourself. However, if you wish to contact us, you must provide the personal data required to process and respond to your request. If you do not provide us with this data, it will not be possible for us to process and respond to your request.
5. non-existence of automated decision-making including profiling.
We would like to point out that in the course of using our website, you will not be subject to any decision based exclusively on automated processing – including profiling – which produces legal effects vis-à-vis you or similarly significantly affects you.

You also have the right to lodge a complaint about the processing of your personal data by us with a data protection supervisory authority in the member state of your place of residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement if you believe that the processing of personal data concerning you is carried out unlawfully.
We would also like to point out that insofar as a processing of your personal data is carried out on the basis of legitimate interest within the framework of the balance of interests pursuant to Art. 6 para.1 sentence 1 f) DSGVO, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time.
