Each time someone accesses our homepage and each time a file stored on our homepage is opened, data appertaining to this activity is temporarily stored and used in a log file. Here are details of the information that is saved with each access/registration:
We store data for in-company, system-related and statistical purposes, and the process is essential for organisational and technical reasons.
3. Personal information
Personal information (§3 sect. 1 of the Federal Data Protection Act "BDSG") includes details of a personal (e.g. name, address, date of birth, profession, title) or factual nature (e.g. income, industrial/commercial sector, services offered) relating to a defined or definable individual.
4. Storage of personal information
Beyond this, no personal information is collected, unless you give this information of your own free will, for instance in the context of an enquiry or registration. No such personal information is sold to third parties, or marketed in any other way.
5. Use and transfer of personal information
Any personal information with which you might have provided us will be used only to answer your own queries, to process any contracts entered into with you, and for technical administration.
Your personal information will not be forwarded to third parties or otherwise transferred, unless it is essential either for the purpose of contract handling (in particular the transfer of order-related data to suppliers) or invoicing, or you have given your prior consent. You are entitled, at any time, to withdraw your consent, with effect for the future.
Any personal information which has been stored will be deleted if you withdraw your consent to its being saved, provided it is not necessary for us to be in possession of such information to satisfy the purpose for which it was saved, or if its storage is forbidden for other legal reasons.

By implementing every technical and organisational measure possible, we strive to save personal information in such a way as to prevent it from being accessed by third parties.

9. Storage of personal information for advertising purposes
Your personal details will not be stored for advertising purposes without your express consent.
10. Web tracking
We utilise web tracking software to establish the frequency of use and the number of people visiting our web site. The data collected, which is only ever taken in its summarised form, is used solely for statistical purposes and the development of the web site.
Cookies are small text files stored on your computer by your web browser for the duration of your stay on our web site, and serve to record your online activities. Cookies cannot damage your computer, nor do they carry viruses.
We use two types of cookies: on the one hand, "session cookies", which are held in temporary storage only for as long as you are visiting our web site, after which they are deleted; and on the other, "permanent cookies", which are used to retain information about visitors who make repeated visits to our web site. The point of utilising these cookies is to enable us to provide optimum user guidance, to "recognise" you, and, when you when you visit the site again, present as varied a web site as possible, along with new contents. You can deactivate cookies by adjusting your browser settings. However, this may make some of the functions on our web site unusable.
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on our web site, then you will need to let us have a valid e-mail address and information that will permit us to check (a) that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided, or (b) that the owner agrees to the newsletter's being sent. No other data will be collected. You may, at any time, withdraw your consent to data and the e-mail address being stored and the address being used to send the newsletter.
13. Further information
Your trust is important to us. For this reason, we will be happy to answer any questions you might have concerning the handling of your personal data. Should you have any questions which this Data Protection Policy Statement has failed to answer, or require further information on any particular point, please send your e-mail to the following address.
