Data protection when visiting our Internet Pages

1. Log files

Upon each visit of our website, your browser automatically sends information to the servers of our website, which is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. The following data is recorded without any action on your part and stored until automatic deletion:

  • IP address of the computer issuing the request,
  • date and time of access,
  • name and URL of the file(s) accessed/retrieved,
  • website which directed you to our Internet presence (referrer page),
  • operating system and browser employed,
  • name of your internet access provider.

Collecting and processing of this data takes place to make the use of our website possible (for establishing the connection), to ensure continuous system security and stability, to allow for technical administration of our network infrastructure and optimization of our website, as well as for internal statistics use. The IP address is only used for statistical purposes, as well as in case of an attack on our network infrastructure. This does not allow any inference to your person. It takes place under consideration and within the scope of the weighing of interests according to article 6 para 1 (f) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

2. Cookies and web analysis

We are continuously working on improving and optimizing our online services and offering you a pleasant visit of our website. Logging your access to our website into log files, as well as employing cookies and web analysis, are important for this. The legal basis for data processing using cookies – also for purposes of web analysis – is the weighing of interests in accordance with article 6 para 1 (f) GDPR.

2.1 Cookie information and cookie management

Cookies are automatically stored onto your computer when you visit our website. Cookies are text files which contain a pseudonymized alias and thus do not permit any form of attribution to a specific person. Only we are able to read these cookies.

The cookies that we employ may be categorized as follows: generally required cookies, function-related cookies, and service-related cookies.

Generally required cookies are used to make our website user-friendly. Certain actions you perform are stored for the duration of the respective visit to our website with the purpose of optimizing your user experience. For example, your entries to the calculator are stored so you do not have to re-enter them. These cookies are deleted when you close/exit the browser.

Function-related cookies enable us to adjust our website to the personal preferences of our users. As an example, we store the settings the user makes (e.g., country or language).

Service-related cookies help us to measure usage of our website. With these cookies, we can determine which areas of our website are visited most frequently. This information helps us to identify potentials to further improve our website.

You can prevent transmission and use of your data, which is generated by the cookie and relates to your use of the website (including your IP address), to Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

Deactivating cookies may lead to parts of our website not being fully functional or not being displayed correctly.

2.2. Web analysis

We use cookies for our website that enable the analysis of your surfing behavior (service-related cookies). For this, we use the web analysis service “Google Analytics”.

3. Communication with us

On our website, you may find various options to contact us. The communication between your browser and our servers is encrypted via SSL. You can see this in your browser by the “https://” in the address of our website.

3.1 Newsletter

If you subscribe to one of our newsletters, we store your e-mail address, name and country of residence, as well as any voluntarily supplied information. We use these exclusively to provide our newsletter service. For newsletters, we use the web service “Mailchimp”.

We collect statistics about when and how often the respective newsletter issues were read. This data is collected on a pseudonymized and statistical basis. This means that we do not record or store which individual recipient has opened an email.

We generally process your personal data on the legal basis of your consent pursuant to article 6 para 1 (a) GDPR. You may cancel your subscription to our newsletter at any time via a link provided in each issue. We will then delete your data from our mailing list.

When you subscribe to our newsletter, we additionally store your IP address as well as the date and time of subscription, in order to be able to provide proof that you have agreed to receiving the newsletter and to protect the email address submitted, as well as to protect our services from abuse. This saving of data is carried out on the legal basis of the weighing of interests in accordance with article 6 para 1 (f) GDPR.

3.2 Contact form

If you wish to send us a message, you may use our contact form. Data you have entered into the contact form such as name, e-mail address and message submitted, is stored and used only for the purpose of our individual communication with you. After completion of the communication process, your personal data will be, as a general rule, deleted. Legal basis for this processing of personal data is – if consent of the user has been given – article 6 para 1 (a) GDPR.

You may withdraw your consent at any time. This will not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal. If you withdraw your consent, we will not be able to answer your enquiry.

4. Content and third-party technology

For embedding videos, we use content and technology of the online video service YouTube.

When retrieving pages from our website containing a Youtube plug-in, a connection to the servers of Youtube is established, and the plug-in displayed. This transmits information on which of our pages you have visited to the Youtube server by transferring your IP address. Additional information about usage may be collected, e.g. which, when and for how long you have viewed a video.

Please note that we have no influence on the mode and scope of collection, use or processing of your data by Youtube.

Your privacy settings for our website

Your privacy is important to us! Therefore, you decide which of your data we may process. Regardless of your selection, we always adhere to the strict requirements of European data protection law (GDPR).

Changes in this policy

The rapid development of the Internet means that changes in our processing of personal data may become necessary. We therefore reserve the right to update and amend this Policy. If we do, we correct the date and the version at the bottom of the page. In case of significant changes, we will notify you in the form of a visible notice on our website.
