2. declaration of consent

By using our web pages and the offers contained therein, you agree that the personal data voluntarily transmitted by you will be stored by us and processed and used in compliance with this data protection declaration.

 

3. data collection

As a rule, you can visit our pages without us requiring any personal data from you. We automatically collect and store log file information that your browser sends to us. These are:

  • Browser type/version
  • Operating system used
  • Referer URL (the website from which you visit us)
  • Hostname of the accessing computer (IP address)
  • Time of the server request

This information is evaluated exclusively for statistical purposes. As an individual user you remain anonymous.

 

4. SSL encryption

This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests you send to us as a site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

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

 

5. cookies

A cookie is a small piece of data that is stored on your device and contains information such as personal page settings and login information. This data record is generated and sent to you by the Web server with which you have established a connection via your Web browser. In general, we use cookies to analyze interest in our web pages and to improve the user-friendliness of our web pages. You can also access our website without cookies. If you wish to use our website to its full extent or comfortably, you should, however, accept those cookies which enable the use of certain functions or make the use more comfortable. You can see the purposes for which the cookies we use are used in the following overview.

With the use of our web pages you agree, as far as cookies are accepted according to your browser settings, with the use of these cookies. Most browsers are set by default to accept all cookies. However, you have the option of setting your browser so that cookies are displayed before they are stored, only certain cookies are accepted or rejected or cookies are generally rejected. If necessary, please refer to the program help to see how this can be set up in your browser.

If you have activated the so-called Do-Not-Track function ("DNT") in your browser, your visit to the Internet pages will automatically not be recorded by the web analysis tool. However, this does not work with every browser. To activate DNT in your browser, please refer to the help function of your browser.

We would like to point out that setting changes only affect the respective browser. If you use different browsers or change the terminal device, the settings must be made again. In addition, you can delete cookies from your storage medium at any time. Information on the cookie settings, how to change them and how to delete cookies can be found in the help function of your web browser.

 

1. session cookies

While you are active on a Web page, a session cookie is temporarily stored in your computer's memory to store a session identifier, for example, to prevent you from having to log in again each time you change pages. Session cookies are deleted when you log out or lose their validity when your session automatically expires.

 

2. permanent or protocol cookies

A permanent or protocol cookie stores a file on your computer for the period of time specified in the expiration date. These cookies enable websites to remember your information and settings on your next visit. This leads to faster and more convenient access, as you do not have to change your language settings for our portal, for example. When the expiration date expires, the cookie is automatically deleted when you visit the website that generated it.
