Data protection - very simple

Below you will find a brief, understandable overview of the collection and processing of your data. Please refer to our data protection declaration for detailed explanations.

We collect this information:

  • The domain name or IP address of your computer, the file request of the client (file name and URL), the http response code and the website from which you are visiting us.
  • We use cookies. You can set your browser so that these cookies are not saved or deleted at the end of your Internet session. 

This is how we collect your data:

We automatically collect the data that is generated when you visit our website, if necessary through the use of cookies. The same applies to the data arising from the use of the newsletter.

Otherwise, we collect the data only on the basis of your entries on our website, in the respective collection forms. Wherever this is the case, you will find a link to the specific data protection notice directly on the form.

We use your data for this purpose:

  • For the technical administration and the provision of the website.
  • For sending and improving the monthly newsletter.
  • In the case of special data entry forms, the exact purpose is described in the respective data protection notice.
  • For forwarding to the operators of social networks whose PlugIn is used by our website.
  • For forwarding to the operators of web services that we make available on the website.

We also use your data

  • Only to the extent provided for by law
  • For misuse detection and fault rectification
  • To provide information to public authorities

As long as we store your data

The duration of data storage depends primarily on the fulfilment of the purpose. This means that we store your data for exactly as long as we need it to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected. In some cases, however here are legal retention periods which provide for a different storage period. In these cases, we store the data for as long as required by the relevant law. Should data in a special context (e.g. Google Analytics) be deleted after another period, this is stated in the detailed data protection declaration.

You have these rights:

  • Right to information (you can also ask for all information in this note at any time)
  • Right to erasure of data (unless time limits prevent this)
  • Right to oblivion (if data has been transmitted, we must inform the recipient about the request for deletion)
  • Right to data transferability (if you wish, we must transfer the data to a third party in machine-readable format)
  • Right to correct the category of data
  • Right of opposition to the processing activity
  • Right to rectification if the data is incorrect.
  • Right of appeal to the supervisory authority
