Every time you access our website and open a file, data about the procedure is stored in a log file. No personal data is stored in this log file and it is not possible to derive the identity of the user from this file; on the contrary, these files are stored and evaluated only for statistical purposes.

We take technical and organisational precautions to ensure maximum protection of the data you have entrusted to us. Data transmission to and from our websites is performed using TLS encryption technology.

When we have engaged another processor to process data on our behalf (Art. 28 GDPO), we transmit data to service providers who assist us in the performance of our tasks. We have concluded data processing agreements with these service providers to ensure that your data is treated in compliance with data protection regulations.

We use the double opt-in method to ensure that our newsletter is sent only to users who wish to subscribe to the newsletter. In this procedure, the potential recipient first asks to be included in a mailing list. The user then receives e-mail confirmation, which the user then returns as legally secure confirmation of the subscription. The address is actively included in the mailing list only when this confirmation is received.

These data are used solely for the distribution of the requested information and offers.

We use Newsletter2Go as our newsletter software. Your data are forwarded to Newsletter2Go GmbH for that purpose. Newsletter2Go is prohibited from selling your data or using the data for any purpose other than the distribution of newsletters.
