Personal data

Personal data is data which concerns your person. This includes your name, address and email address. You are also not required to disclose personal data in order to visit our Internet site. In a small number of cases, we require your name and address, as well as additional information, so that we can provide you with the requested service.

The same applies in case we provide you with requested information or when we answer your queries. In such cases, we will always inform you of this. Otherwise, we only save the data which you have provided us with automatically or voluntarily.

Should you use one of our servers, we generally only collect the data which is necessary in order to provide you with our service. We may request further information from you, which you may provide voluntarily. Whenever we process personal data, we do this in order to be able to provide you with our service or in order to pursue our commercial objectives.

Non-personal data which is saved automatically

Server log files

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Date and time of the request
  • Name of the requested file
  • Page from which the file was requested
  • Access status (file transfer, file not found, etc.)
  • used web browser and operating system used
  • full IP address of the requesting computer
  • transferred amount of data

A merge of this data with other data sources will not be done. The processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO based on our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website.

For reasons of technical security, in particular to ward off attacks on our web server, we store this data for a short time. A conclusion to individual persons is not possible on the basis of this data. After seven days at the latest, the data is anonymised by shortening the IP address at the domain level, so that it is no longer possible to relate to the individual user. In anonymous form, the data is also processed for statistical purposes; a comparison with other databases or a transfer to third parties, even in excerpts, does not take place. Only in the context of our server statistics, which we publish every two years in our activity report, a representation of the number of page views takes place.

Use of Twitter Analytics

We use Twitter Analytics on our website. This is provided by Twitter. Twitter is a service of Twitter Inc, 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA.

Hereby a user action pixel of the provider is used for statistical purposes. This allows the user behaviour to be traced, if the user was transferred to this service by clicking on the Twitter advert. By means of this, Twitter adverts are assessed for market research purposes, so that future advertising measures can be improved. The data which is gathered is anonymous. Therefore it is not possible for the provider to trace a specific person. However the data is saved and processed by Twitter. Therefore, a connection to the corresponding user profiles is possible, which means that Twitter can use the data for its own advertising purposes. The provider and its partners may also use this data outside of Twitter in order to trigger advertising. In this context, cookies could also be saved on your computer. You can prevent the saving of cookies by settings your browser on to “reject cookies”.
