Under no circumstances will data be passed on to third parties or be further evaluated unless so required by legal obligations.
Any page access will result in the storage of the following set of data:
• name of the accessed file
• date and time of the access
• amount of data transferred
• record of whether the access was successful
• description of the type of web browser used
• operating system used
• page visited previously
• user’s IP address
We will only collect, evaluate and use personal data when we are legally permitted to do so or if you have given us your permission to do so.
Should you contact us, we will store your data for the purpose of administering your request, as well as for any potentially ensuing correspondence.
Using the "Piwik" analysis tool
Our Internet platform uses Piwik (http://piwik.org), an open-source software for the analysis of user visits on this page. Piwik uses so-called cookies, text files that are stored on your computer, thus enabling an analysis of your use of our website. The information imparted by the cookie on how this website is used is stored on our servers in Germany and is not passed on to third parties. Once it has been evaluated, every visitor’s IP-address is immediately anonymized before storage.
You can prevent the installation of cookies by changing your browser settings accordingly; we would like to point out that this may lead to restrictions in the full use of this platform’s functions.
You can refuse the usage of your data by Piwik by any of the following means:
A cookie will be stored on your computer that merely contains the information that none of your data may be collected by Piwik. Any previously stored cookies will then be erased. However, should you at some point delete all cookies from your browser, you may be required to repeat the refusal of the usage of your data.
You have the right to revoke your agreement of data evaluation and usage at any time and with immediate effect. You may revoke your agreement of data evaluation and usage in full or in part at any time. To do so, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Furthermore you have the possibility to inquire free-of-charge as to the full extent of our company’s collection of your personal data, and to have that data corrected, blocked and/or deleted. To do so, please send an e-mail to email@example.com.
