General information about data protection

Data processing when visiting websites

When you visit a website, a large amount of data - including personal data - is automatically transmitted via the Internet. From a technological perspective, this is necessary for the functionalities of the website visit and to provide the best possible results.

Every time someone visits a website, an image is retrieved from a server, an external plugin (or script) is loaded or a video is streamed or any of the many transmission options is used, your computer will send data to the server which you are visiting. When visiting a website, your browser (such as Firefox, Internet Explorer, Edge, Opera, Safari) will automatically send specific information about your system. Such data may include:

  • Operating system
  • Screen resolution
  • Keyboard layout (language)
  • IP address from which the website or file was accessed
  • Name of the accessed website or file
  • Time stamp (date and time) of access
  • Browser name and its version
  • Data volume transferred
  • Access status (file transferred, error code)
  • Website from which the user reached our website (referer)
  • Dwell time on the website

This data is logged by each server. The logging is done for example for

  • maintaining and checking IP security (e. g. to detect hacker attacks).
  • statistical evaluation (about the use of the website).
  • website improvement.
  • adapted output of the website or files so that these are (can be) displayed optimally on your end device.

No pseudonymization or anonymization is used for security protocols, as this would make it impossible to draw conclusions about potential attackers. As a rule, the evaluation of data for other purposes is anonymised and no profiling is carried out. Further information can be found in the further course of this privacy policy.

Information on data subject rights

Every data subject can assert his or her rights (data subject rights) against the person responsible. This can be done by e-mail, post or a form provided. Telephone enquiries are also possible. However, telephone enquiries will only be accepted and will not be answered on the telephone. The data controller chooses the medium (email, post, other media) and sends the data subject the response to their request via that medium. However, if an inquiry is made electronically, the response will also be made electronically whenever possible. Replies to requests concerning data subjects' rights shall be free of charge. In the event of excessive exercise (e.g. heavy accumulation) of data subject rights, a fee may be charged. The answer is given within the statutory period of one month. The deadline may be extended in exceptional cases (e.g. high number of requests or high complexity of the request). Reasons must be given for the extension of the time limit. The rights of the data subjects are listed below.

Right of access (Art. 15 DSGVO)

You have the right to request confirmation as to whether personal data concerning you are being processed; if this is the case, you have the right to be informed about these personal data and to receive the information listed in detail in Article 15 of the GDPR.

Right of rectification (Art. 16 DSGVO)

You have the right to demand the immediate correction of any incorrect personal data concerning you and, if necessary, the completion of any incomplete data.

Right to erasure (Art. 17 DSGVO)

You have the right to request that personal data concerning you be deleted without delay, provided that one of the reasons listed in detail in Art. 17 DSGVO applies.

Right to data portability (Art. 20 DSGVO)

We will then no longer process the personal data unless there are demonstrably compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

Right of appeal to a supervisory authority (Art. 77 DSGVO)

Pursuant to Art. 77 DSGVO, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if you are of the opinion that the processing of data concerning you violates data protection provisions.
