Personal data is information that can be used to ascertain your identity. This includes information such as your correct name, address, postal address and telephone number. It does not include information that is not directly related to your actual identity.
As a rule, you can use our online services without revealing your identity. When you request information, we will ask you for your name and other personal information. You are free to choose whether to disclose this information to us or not.
We store your details on specially protected servers in Germany. Access to this data is given to only a few specially authorised persons only who are responsible for the technical, commercial or editorial maintenance of the servers.
Data relating to your internet access is stored on our servers for backup purposes; these could be used to identify you (for example, your IP address, the date and time and the pages that you viewed). We do not exploit any personal data. We reserve the right to use anonymous data records for statistical purposes.
Transfer of Personal Information to Third Parties
We will only forward your data to third parties with your express consent.
According to the regulations of the German Data Protection Act, visitors to our website are informed each time personal data is collected. Furthermore, we do not collect, use or process personal data without your express consent, which may also be given electronically. Once you have given us your consent, you may revoke it at any time with future effect.
The personal data that you enter on our website is stored until the purpose for which it was entrusted to us has been fulfilled. If you no longer agree with your personal data being stored, or if it was stored in error, we will have your data deleted or blocked accordingly, or make the necessary corrections (provided this is possible in accordance with the prevailing law). If you wish, we can send you information free of charge about all of your personal data that we have saved.
