Data Protection Statement
We place a high value on the protection of your personal information. Therefore, we adhere rigorously to all legal requirements during the entire data processing procedure (e.g. during data collection, data processing, and data transmission). Visits to our Website, as well as the use of the Online Contact Form (“Contact Us”), require the collection, processing and use of personal information. Personal information includes the personal or factual individual data of an identified or identifiable natural person. In the following, we provide you with an overview of the types of data we collect, the extent to which we use and share such data, the security measures we employ to protect your data, and how you can request further information about the data processing procedures.

The scope of data processing depends on whether you use our Website only as a visitor, or whether you also use our Online Contact Form.
1. Collection, Processing and Use of Data
With respect to your visit to our Website we collect, process and use exclusively statistical data in summary form for statistical purposes, in order to determine the amount of incoming data traffic in case problems with our server arise, and in order to administer the Website. These data are anonymised, i.e. we cannot connect them with any individual person.
We only collect, store and use information beyond that when you voluntarily provide it to us. This may happen when using our Online Contact Form (gender, first and last name, company designation, your e-mail address and your message). We use these data according to the applicable legal regulations in order to process your request and to improve our service. This additional information, however, is not necessary when you only visit our Website.
