Data privacy

Introduction / Confidentiality of employees
Protecting your personal data is an important task of our daily work. Therefore, we would like to take this opportunity to inform you about the data protection principles of our website. Our data protection principles are based on the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and other data protection regulations.
Within the company, data protection is a major concern for us. Our employees have been explicitly obliged to maintain secrecy and confidentiality as well as to comply with data protection regulations.

Terms and purpose of data collection
In principle, the disclosure of personal data is not necessary for the use of our website. However, for the provision of our services we will need your personal data. In case of an assignment, we collect, store and use personal data only insofar as this is necessary for the provision of our services, release of information and the processing of a contract. This also applies to the transmission of information, preparation of tenders and replying to individual questions.
When using our website, we store data for statistical purposes, such as time, operating system, browser and IP address (the previously visited site – referrer URL). These data are collected solely for statistical purposes to further improve our website. In addition, we reserve the right to use these data in case of system abuse or fraud, or in order to identify the reasons and the causes of the abuse.
It should be noted that in terms of data transmission via the Internet, no secure data transfer is guaranteed (e.g. when communicating by e-mail). Therefore, sensitive data should either not be transferred or should only be transferred via a secure connection or an encrypted transmission.
Other personal data such as name, address, telephone number or e-mail address is not collected during the use of the website, unless this information is given voluntarily, for example during an inquiry for a service or a request for information. Personal data is processed exclusively in accordance with the legal provisions in Germany.

Transfer to Third Parties
In principle, a transfer of data to third parties is not carried out, unless it is necessary to provide the service or to execute the contract. Information to authorities or other state institutions shall only be provided within the statutory duty to supply information to governments or due to judicial decision.
At the request of the competent authorities, we may provide data information in individual cases, insofar as it is necessary for the purpose of law enforcement, for security reasons, to meet statutory duties of the authorities of the protection of the constitution or the military counterintelligence or for the enforcement of intellectual property rights.

Data transfers abroad
Because of our international business activities, it may be that personal data are transferred to a country outside the European Union. However, the recipient is provided an appropriate level of protection.

You will receive free information about your stored data with us at any time. Providing a reason for the release of these data is not required.
