3. Data processing and processing purposes

Our web pages collect a series of general data and information with each call. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. To be recorded:

  • Used web browser (type and version)
  • Used operating system
  • Date and time of the server request
  • IP address
  • Retrieved documents.

These are only general data and information that does not allow any conclusions about your person. This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the contents of our web pages requested by you and is mandatory when using the internet. Anonymous information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us, in order to optimize our Internet appearance and the technology behind it.

This general data and information are deleted by log rotations after a certain time (depending on the polling frequency), after a maximum of 1 month.

If you contact us by e-mail or contact form, then you do so on a voluntary basis. In compliance with the principles of data avoidance and data economy, you only have to fill in the fields as mandatory fields that are mandatory for processing your request. The information provided by you (alternatively, depending on the form):

  • First and Last Name
  • Address
  • Phone number
  • Postcode
  • Message

are stored for the purpose of processing the request as well as for possible follow-up questions. A passing on to third does not take place unless you have expressly agreed to this.

To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art SSL encryption techniques. The encryption method is used whenever "https: //" and a "lock symbol" appear in the browser line. Nevertheless, the transmission on the Internet, in particular due to unauthorized access by third parties, have security holes. We would like to point this out for the sake of completeness.

We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. Therefore, we only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes mentioned here or as provided for by the various storage periods provided for by law. After discontinuation of the respective purpose or expiration of these deadlines, the corresponding data will be routinely and in accordance with the statutory provisions blocked or deleted.

5. Privacy Policy for the Use and Use of Web Analytics

Our websites use the web analytics tool "Matomo" (formerly "Piwik"), an open source software of the provider InnoCraft Ltd., 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand. In a web analysis, the data on the behavior of website visitors are collected and statistically evaluated to optimize the web pages. We have a legitimate interest (optimization and marketing purpose) in the statistical analysis of your user behavior, Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 EU Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (see point 8).

We operate "Matomo" on a server of our data center in Jena, Germany (in-house hosting). The log files and usage data are stored on this server only, used anonymously and maintained by the data center staff.

"Matomo" uses cookies (see section 4.). These cookies allow web analysis.

If you do not agree with the storage and evaluation of the data from your website visit, you can object to the storage and use at any time by clicking the mouse. In this case, a so-called opt-out cookie is stored in your browser, with the result that "Matomo" does not collect any session data.
