Deletion of information
We are required by law to store certain types of information for a minimum period of time. After the mandatory storage period expired, the data concerned is routinely deleted. Any data not affected by these laws is deleted as soon as it is no longer needed for its intended purpose.
The provider of these websites automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files which your browser automatically transmits to us, such as:
- browser type/version
- used operating system
- referrer URL
- host name of the accessing computer
- time of query
Those data cannot be associated with individual persons. We do not merge this data with other sources. We reserve the right to retrospectively check the data if there is any indication of illegal use.
A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.
You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.
Please note that most data transmission via the internet in general is unsecured. It can not be excluded that transmitted information may become known to or even falsified by unauthorized parties.
We implemented technical and organizational measures in order to protect our website and other systems against loss, destruction, access, modification or distribution of your information by unauthorized persons. Whenever you visit our website, for security purposes our web server will temporarily record the domain name or IP address of the computer requesting access as well as the access date, the file requested by the client (file name and URL), the HTTP response code and the website that referred you to us as well as the number of bytes transmitted during the connection
For security reasons, and to protect the transmission of confidential data, such as enquiries you send to us as the provider, this website uses an SSL encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the change in the address line of the browser from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock-symbol in your browser address line.
When the SSL encryption is activated, the data you have transmitted to us cannot be accessed by third parties.
