They may include the type of web browser, operating system, the name of your internet service provider, the website you are visiting us from, the date and length of your visit and the web pages you have visited. These data are only used to determine the attractiveness and improve the performance and contents of our website and do not reveal your identity.
Personal data (such as names, addresses, telephone numbers or email addresses) are not collected unless provided to us voluntarily, i.e. when registering or sending a query. Without your specific consent, any data provided by you are only used to the extent required and for the sole purposes of the technical administration of the web pages, customer administration and providing our services.
At the end of the retention period under tax and commercial law, your data are deleted unless you have expressly consented to the further use of your data.

Using Google Analytics
Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online presence by users, compile reports on activities within this online presence and to provide further services to us associated with the use of this online presence and internet use. In the process, pseudonymous user profiles of the user can be prepared from the data processed.
We only use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymization. This means users’ IP addresses are abbreviated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the European Economic Area. The whole IP address will only be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there in exceptional cases. The IP address transmitted by the user’s browser will not be associated with any other data from Google.
Users can prevent cookies being stored by adjusting their browser software settings accordingly as described above.
Transfer of personal data
Personal data are only transferred within our company, and only within the extent required. We do not pass on your data to third parties without your consent. Personal data are only forwarded to state bodies and authorities when obligated by national legal requirements. Our staff is under strict obligation to keep information confidential.
We apply technical and organizational safety measures to prevent the manipulation, loss, destruction, unauthorized disclosure of your data and access of your data by unauthorized persons. We are continuously improving our safety measures in line with technological developments.
