We are pleased about your visit on our web pages and your interest in our offers. The protection of your personal data is an important concern for us.

Automatically saved IP-address
The protection of your privacy is extremely important to us. Our web content is therefore designed fundamentally so that it can be used anonymously. This website transfers requested web content to your IP-address. An IP-address is a personal data. For statistical reasons and to detect errors, your IP-address will be anonymized and stored in a log file along with access date and time for seven days. To these anonymized information, the requested URL, the referrer URL, an error code, the used browser and operation system will be added.
When you visit our website, usage data is temporarily stored on our web server for statistical purposes as a protocol to improve the quality of our website. This data set consists of
- the page from which the file was requested
- the name of the file
- the date and time of the query
- the amount of data transferred
- the access status (file transferred, file not found)
- the description of the type of web browser used
- the IP adress of the requesting computer, which is shortened so that a personal reference can no longer be established
The protocol data mentioned is only stored anonymously.
Information that you provide to us when contacting us will only be used to process your request. Your data will not be shared with third parties. This data will be deleted after one year at the latest.
