Purposes of data processing by the responsible body and third parties

We only process your personal data for the purposes stated in this privacy policy. Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties for purposes other than those mentioned. We will only disclose your personal data to third parties if:

  • you have given your express consent,
  • processing is necessary to fulfil a contract agreed with you,
  • processing is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation,
  • processing is necessary to protect legitimate interests and there is no reason to believe that you have an overriding legitimate interest in not having your data disclosed.

 

Erasure and blocking of data

We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. Therefore, we only store your personal data as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes mentioned here or as required according to the various storage periods determined by the competent legal authorities. Once the purpose in question no longer exists or the storage period expires, the corresponding data will be routinely blocked or erased in accordance with statutory requirements.

Collection of general information when you visit our website

Information of a general nature is automatically collected by a cookie when you access our website. This information (server log files) includes, among other things, the type of browser used, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider, and other similar data. This only includes information that cannot be connected to you as an individual.

This information is produced automatically during Internet use and is required for technical reasons so that the requested web content can be correctly displayed. It is processed for the following purposes in particular:

  • ensuring smooth connection to the website,
  • ensuring our website works properly,
  • evaluation of system security and stability and
  • for other administrative purposes.

 

The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest arising from the aforementioned purposes of data collection. We do not use your data to draw conclusions about you personally. The only recipients of the data are the responsible body and, if applicable, the external processor.

Anonymous information of this kind can be statistically analysed in order to improve our website and its underlying technology.

Cookies

We use "cookies", as do many other websites. Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. This automatically provides us with certain data, such as your IP address, the browser used, the operating system on your computer, and your connection to the Internet.

Cookies cannot be used to run programmes or transfer viruses to your computer. Based on the information contained in the cookies, we can make navigation easier for you and ensure that our website displays correctly.

The information we collect will never be forwarded to third parties or linked with your personal data without your explicit consent.

Our website can, of course, be viewed without the use of cookies. Internet browsers are normally configured to accept cookies. You can disable the use of cookies at any time via your browser settings. Please refer to your Internet browser's help feature to learn how you can change these settings. Please note that some of our website features may not work if you have disabled the use of cookies.

SSL encryption

We use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS to protect the security of your data during transmission.

Contact Form

If you contact us with any questions by eMail or through the contact form, you thereby give us your consent to contact you. A valid eMail address is required for this purpose. This is used to allocate the request and then reply to it. The provision of any further data is optional. The information you give us will be stored for the purpose of processing the request, as well as for any follow-up questions. After your request has been processed, your personal data will automatically be deleted.

Use of script libraries (Google Web Fonts)

In order to present our contents correctly and in a graphically appealing way across all browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google Web Fonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/) on this website. Google Web Fonts are loaded into your browser's cache to avoid multiple loading. If your browser does not support Google Web Fonts or does not allow access, content will be displayed in a default font.

Accessing script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library operator. In theory, it is possible - but currently also unclear whether and, if so, for what purposes - that operators of corresponding libraries collect data.

The privacy policy of the library operator, Google can be found here:

https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

Use of Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps API to display geographical information. When Google Maps is used, Google also collects, processes and utilises data about the visitor's use of map functions. For more information about how Google processes your information, please see the Google Privacy Notices. You can also access the Data Protection Centre there to change the protection settings for your personal data.

Detailed instructions for managing your own data in connection with Google products can be found here.

Changes to our privacy policies​

We reserve the right to adjust this privacy policy so that it always meets the current legal requirements or to include changes to our services in the privacy policy, such as the introduction of new services. Any subsequent website access will then be subject to the terms of the new privacy policy.
