Understanding of Data Protection
Data protection covers personal data. As defined in section 1 of § 3 of the BDSG, personal data means any information concerning the personal or material circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes e.g. your name, postal address, email address or telephone number, but may also cover usage data like your IP address.
Gathering and Storing of Personal Data
You can visit our website without providing any personal information. We will simply store your access data without any personal identifiers. This so-called usage data does not enable us to identify you as an individual and is analyzed only to improve our offer. In addition, we use your anonymized IP address to recognize the country you are visiting our website from so that we can provide you with the right language version. We do not store the anonymized IP address for this purpose.
Personal information given to us voluntarily (contact form, application) will only be used for the purpose for which you provided the information. We store your personal data no longer than necessary to complete your request. We are not giving your data to any third parties and do not use them for any marketing purposes.
We secure our website and other systems with up-to-date technical and organizational measures to prevent your data being lost, destroyed, accessed, modified or disseminated by unauthorized persons.
Right of access to information and right to revoke consent
You have the right to receive information about your stored personal data on request. Moreover, you also have the right to correct incorrect information, and to block or delete your personal data, provided there are no legal obligations to retain data that prevent this. Please address any questions concerning data protection to:
Antje Franz - Data Protection Officer
