The website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us in "server log files". These are:
- browser type and browser version
- operating system used

These data cannot be assigned to specific persons. These data will not be combined with data from other sources. We reserve the right to examine these data retrospectively if we have specific cause to suspect illegal activity.
IV. Collection of personal data
Use of our website is usually possible without providing personal data. If personal data (for example, name, address or email addresses) is collected on our website, this is always done on a voluntary basis, to the extent possible. This data will not be forwarded to third parties without your consent.
We expressly state that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating via email) can have security gaps. Seamless protection of data from access by third parties is not possible.
If you are making an enquiry via our contact form, the information you enter in the form including your contact details will be stored by us for the purposes of processing the enquiry and answering any further questions in connection with the initial enquiry. We do not pass on this data without your consent. You can at any time request to have your personal data deleted.
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content such as requests that you send to us as site operators, our website uses SSL encryption (Secure Socket Layer).
V. Contact form
On our website, you can find a contact form which can be used for electronic contact. If a user takes advantage of this possibility, the data entered in the input mask will be transmitted to us and stored. This data includes:
At the time the message is sent, the following data is stored:
- IP address
- date and time of dispatch
- title, name, address, company name
- phone number, email address
Alternatively, it is possible to contact us via the email address provided. In this case, the user's personal data transmitted by email will be stored.
In this regard, there is no disclosure of data to third parties. The data are used solely for processing the conversation.
The legal basis for processing data, provided that the user has given their consent to this effect, is Article 6 (1) (a) of the GDPR.
The legal basis for processing data in the course of sending an email is Article 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR. If the aim of the email contact is the conclusion of a contractual relationship, then Article 6 (1) (b) of the GDPR also applies to the data processing.
The processing of personal data from the input form is used solely for us to handle the contact request. If the user makes contact by email, there is also a required legitimate interest in data processing.
The other personal data processed during the sending process is used to prevent misuse of the contact form, and to ensure the security of our IT systems.
The data shall be deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. For the personal data from the contact form's input mask and the data sent by email, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is ended when the circumstances indicate that the situation concerned has been conclusively clarified.
The additional personal data collected during the sending process will be deleted at the latest after a period of seven days.
Possibility of objection and removal
The user has the possibility to revoke his consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the user contacts us by email, he can object to the storage of his personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued.
The consent can be revoked with future effect at any time without stating the reasons.
All personal data stored in the course of contacting us will be deleted in this case.
