3. The collection of data on our website
Some of our internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies cause no damage of any kind to your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies serve the purpose of making our offering more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your computer and saved in your browser.
Most of the cookies that we use are known as “session cookies”. These are erased automatically after your session has ended. Other cookies remain saved on your end device until you erase them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser again on your next visit.
You can set your browser so that you are informed of the placing of cookies and that you only allow cookies in specific cases; that you accept cookies in certain cases or block them in general; and so that the automatic erasure of the cookies is activated when you close your browser. The deactivating of cookies may impair the functionality of this website.
Server log files
The provider of these pages gathers and stores information automatically in what are known as server log files which your browser transfers to us automatically. These are:
- Browser type and version
- the operating system used
- the referrer URL
- the host name of the accessing computer
- the time of the server enquiry.
- IP address
- A merging of these data with other data sources does not take place.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
If you contact us via our contact form, the details that you provide on the contact form inclusive of the contact details that you provide there will be saved by us for the purpose of processing your enquiry and for the case of subsequent queries. We will not forward such data to anyone else without your consent.
Therefore, the processing of the data entered in the contact form is based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR). You can withdraw this consent at any time. To do this, sending us an informal notification by email is sufficient. The lawfulness of the data processing sequences which take place until the withdrawal remains unaffected by the withdrawal.
The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to erase it, withdraw your consent for storage, or the purpose for which the data was stored no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

We only use the data entered for this purpose for the purpose of using the respective offer or service for which you have registered. The mandatory data which is requested during registration must be provided in full. If not, we will refuse the registration.
For important changes, such as changes to the scope of the offer or technically necessary changes, we will use the email address you provided upon your registration to inform you in this way.
The data entered during registration is processed on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR). You can withdraw any consent you have given at any time. To do this, sending us an informal notification by email is sufficient. The lawfulness of the data processing that has already taken place remains unaffected by the withdrawal.
The data collected during registration is stored by us for as long as you are registered on our website and is then erased. The statutory retention periods remain unaffected.

We use “Google reCAPTCHA” (referred to hereinafter as “reCAPTCHA”) on our websites. The service provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).
The purpose of reCAPTCHA is to check whether the data entered on our websites (e.g. in a contact form) is done by a human being or an automated program. For this purpose, reCAPTCHA analyses the behaviour of the visitor to the website on the basis of various characteristics. This analysis starts automatically, as soon as the visitor to the website enters the website. For the purposes of analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (e.g. IP address, time spent on the website by the visitor to the website or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis is forwarded to Google.
Analyses by reCAPTCHA run completely in the background. Visitors to the website are not informed that an analysis is taking place.
The data processing takes place on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting their web offers from abusive automated spying and from SPAM.
This site uses the map service Google Maps via an API. The service provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
To use the functions of Google Maps, storing your IP address is necessary. This information is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA, where it is stored. The provider of this website has no influence on this transfer of data.
The use of Google Maps is in the interests of ensuring an attractive presentation of our online offers and an easy findability of the locations that we have provided on our website. This constitutes a legitimate interest in terms of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
