Data protection

The operators of this website take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with statutory data protection regulations and this privacy policy.

It is generally possible to use our website without providing personal data. If personal data (e.g. name, address or email addresses) is collected on our website, it is always done on a voluntary basis to the greatest extent possible. Some of this data is passed on to third parties in accordance with this privacy policy.

We would like to point out that data transfer via the internet (e.g. communication by email) can have security vulnerabilities. Full protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Cookies

This website sometimes uses what are known as cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are session cookies; these are automatically deleted once you leave the website. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them; these enable us to recognise your browser when you next visit our website.

You can change the settings in your browser so that you are informed about the use of cookies and so that you only allow cookies in individual cases, you can opt to exclude the use of cookies in specific cases or in general, and you can activate the automatic deletion of cookies when you close your browser. If you deactivate cookies, you may not be able to use all of the features of this website.

Hosting provider and server log files

The provider of this website automatically collects and stores information in server log files, which your browser automatically sends to us. This includes your:

  • IP address
  • browser type and version
  • operating system
  • referrer URL
  • host name of the accessing computer
  • time of the server request

This data cannot be directly associated with a specific person, and it is not merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively if we become aware of legitimate indications of illegal use.

This data and all data on this website is stored by our hosting provider Hostpoint AG, Neue Jonastrasse 60, 8640 Rapperswil-Jona, Switzerland. You can find Hostpoint’s privacy policy here.

SSL encryption

For reasons of security and to protect the transfer of confidential information, such as enquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this website uses SSL encryption. You can tell whether a connection is encrypted if the address bar in the browser changes from ‘http://’ to ‘https://’ and by the padlock symbol in your browser bar.

If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.

Contact form

If you send us enquiries via the contact form, the details you list in the enquiry form, including the contact data you provide there (which includes your IP address), will be stored by us for the purpose of processing your enquiry and dealing with any follow-up questions. We will not share this data with third parties without your consent.

Google Analytics

This website uses features of the website analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses cookies. These are text files that are stored on your computer and allow your use of this website to be analysed. The information generated by cookies about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the US and stored there.

IP anonymisation

We have activated the IP anonymisation feature on this website. This means that your IP address is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other member states of the European Economic Area Agreement before being transferred to the US. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the US and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of analysing your use of this website, for preparing reports on website activity and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transferred by your browser through Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

You may reject the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser. However, please note that by doing so, you may not be able to use all of the features of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting and processing the data generated by cookies and related to your use of this website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser add-on available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

Commissioned data processing

We have concluded a contract with Google governing commissioned data processing, and fully comply with the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.

Google Fonts

Google Fonts are used on this website. As far as we know, no personal data is stored by Google as part of this.

However, for technical reasons, we need to send your IP address to Google so that the fonts can be transferred to your browser.

YouTube

Our website uses plug-ins from the YouTube website, which is owned by Google. The operator of the website is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. A connection to YouTube’s servers is established when you visit one of our pages that has a YouTube plug-in. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited.

If you are logged in to your YouTube account, you allow YouTube to directly associate your surfing behaviour with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
