Right of information and revocation
You have the right at any time to inquire free of charge and without delay about the data collected about you. You can also revoke your consent to the use of your personal data with effect for the future. For this purpose, please contact the service provider indicated in the imprint.
Data protection (general)
When you access our website, general information (so-called server log files) is automatically collected. These include, among other things, the web browser you use, your operating system and your Internet service provider. This data does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person and is statistically evaluated by us in order to improve our website technically and in terms of content. The collection of this information is necessary in order to be able to deliver the content of the website correctly.
The use of the website is generally possible without providing personal data. Insofar as personal data (for example name, address or e-mail addresses) is collected, this is always done on a voluntary basis as far as possible. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.
If a contractual relationship is to be established, the content of which is to be developed or changed, or if you submit an inquiry to us, we collect and use personal data from you insofar as this is necessary for this purpose (inventory data). We collect, process and use personal data to the extent necessary to enable you to use the website (usage data). All personal data will only be stored as long as it is necessary for the stated purpose (processing of your request or processing of a contract). In this context, we take into account retention periods under tax and commercial law. By order of the competent authorities, we must provide information about this data (inventory data) in individual cases, insofar as this is necessary for the purposes of criminal prosecution, to avert danger, to fulfill the legal tasks of the constitution protection authorities or the Military Counter-Intelligence Service or to enforce intellectual property rights.
We expressly point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. It is not possible to provide complete protection against access to data.
The use of contact data published within the framework of the imprint obligation by third parties for the purpose of sending advertising and information material not expressly requested is hereby expressly prohibited. Excepted from this are existing business relationships or you have a corresponding consent from us.
The providers and all third parties mentioned on this website expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information. The same applies to the commercial use and disclosure of data.

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.

On this website, the plugin for the "Google AdWords Conversion Tracking" function of Google Inc. ("Google"), 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA is implemented. For this purpose, so-called "cookies" (text files), which are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website when you have clicked on an ad by Google, are used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website will be stored for 90 days. Personalized data is not stored in the process. For the validity period, Google and we as the operator can recognize that you have clicked on an ad and have reached a corresponding target site. The stored cookies cannot be tracked across multiple websites of different AdWords customers. So-called conversion statistics are collected in the Google AdWords service, which record the number of users who have clicked on an ad.
In addition, it is quantified how many users were linked to a "conversion tag target site".
By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.
