This Privacy Notice provides information on how we use your personal data. We will only use your personal information in compliance with the statutory provisions contained in the Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz), the Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz) and/or other data protection provisions. This means that we collect, process and/or store your personal information where permitted by law or where you have given your consent. We deploy technical and organisational measures to safeguard your personal information in conformity with the relevant legal provisions. We should, however, point out that personal information sent by e-mail is normally not encrypted and therefore the security of such information cannot be guaranteed.
Use of Your Personal Information
We will only process personal information that you supply to us on this website (e.g. your name and address or e-mail address). We will generally only use this information for correspondence with you and only for the purpose for which you made the information available to us.
If you wish, we will use your personal data to send you information about our company's products and services. This does, however, requires that you have granted us your consent to this in the required place. Even if you have consented to your personal information being used for marketing purposes, you may still revoke it at any time. We will remind you of your right to revoke your consent in all advertising material sent to you. To revoke your consent, simply write to us at email@example.com.
We will only process your personal data within the European Economic Area and will not transfer it to third parties unless we are authorised or required by law to do so or you have previously consented to our doing so.
Right to Obtain Information
You have the right to receive information from us at any time about the personal data stored about you. In addition, you may request us to correct, block or delete such data. To this end, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that, for security reasons, we may require you to provide documentation in order to identify you.
Data Sent by Your Browser
A record is made when you access our website. This record includes the IP address used by your PC at the time, the date and time, the type of browser you were using, the type of operating system as well as which pages you viewed. As a rule, this data is not sufficient for us to trace an access back to an individual user. We collect this data for the purposes of data security and to allow us to detect, pin down and clear faults or errors. Where this data is analysed statistically, the data is analysed on a strictly anonymous basis so that every personal reference is eliminated. We do not create or process user profiles.
What are known as cookies may be used by our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard disk. These files are used to control the Internet connection while you use our website and enable us to optimise it to suit your needs. Some cookies are transient and only used while you are accessing our website, while others are saved on your PC by your browser. You can also utilise our website without accepting cookies. Most browsers are set to accept cookies automatically. However, you can deactivate the saving of cookies or configure your browser so that it notifies you whenever a cookie is sent. For further information, please consult the user manual for your browser.

We reserve the right to amend this Privacy Notice at any time. Therefore, to stay up-to-date on the content of the most recent version of our Privacy Notice, we would request that you check it at regular intervals when visiting our website.
