Usage data

When you visit our website, our web server temporarily evaluates usage data for statistical purposes in order to improve the quality of our website. This data consists of the following data categories:

  • the name and address of the requested content,
  • the date and time of the query,
  • of the transferred data volume,
  • the access status (content transferred, content not found),
  • the description of the used web browser and operating system,
  • the referral link, which indicates from which page you reached ours,
  • the IP address of the requesting computer, which is shortened in such a way that a personal reference can no longer be established.

The above-mentioned log data will only be evaluated anonymously.

The legal basis for the processing of usage data is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The processing is carried out in the legitimate interest of providing the contents of the website and ensuring a device- and browser-optimised display.

We take technical and organizational measures to protect your data as comprehensively as possible from unwanted access. These measures include encryption procedures on our web pages. Your data is transferred from your computer to our server and vice versa via the internet using TLS encryption.

This is retained for subsequent page requests and so that your consent can still be traced. You can find more information on this under the section „Necessary Cookies“.

Map services

On our web sites, we embed map services which are not stored on our servers. In order to prevent the automatic downloading of third-party content when you visit our web sites with embedded map services, we only show locally stored preview images of the maps as a first step. This does not provide the third-party provider with any information.

Only after you click on the preview image, will third-party content be downloaded. This provides the third party with information that you have accessed our site and with the usage data technically required for this purpose. We have no influence on the further data processing by the third-party provider.

By clicking on the preview image, you give us the consent to download contents of the third-party provider.

The legal basis for the embedding processing is your consent if you have previously given your consent by clicking on the preview image.

Please note that the embedding of some map services means that your data may be processed outside the EU or EEA (in particular in the U.S.). If the data is processed outside the EU or the EEA (in particular in the U.S.) in this context, we provide information on the level of data protection in the table below.

Provider Maximum storage period Appropriate level of data protection Withdrawal of consent
Google 6 months For transfers to the U.S., an adequate level of data protection is guaranteed due to the certification of the provider under the adequacy decision (EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework). If you have clicked on a preview image, the content of the third-party provider is immediately downloaded. To avoid this downloading on other sites, please do not click on the preview image.​

Customer login area

If you wish to use our Customer Login Area, your prior registration is required. We only collect the data required for registration.

The legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6 (1) (b) and Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR in our legitimate interest to be able to provide you with the services and information available in the Customer Login.

If we collect additional data during this process, these will be marked as voluntary and the processing is based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. You can withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future. To do so, please contact us using the contact details provided at the end of this Privacy Policy.

Your rights as a data subject

When processing your personal data, the GDPR grants you certain rights as a data subject:​​
