Privacy Policy


Welcome to our website!
We attach great importance to keeping your data safe and protecting your privacy. Below you will find all information you need about the collection and use of personal data on our website.

Anonymous collection of data
You can visit our websites without providing any information about yourself. We do not collect any personal data in this context. We simply evaluate statistic data that make it impossible to determine your identity in order to improve our offer.

Collection, processing and usage of personal data
We only collect personal data (single data about personal or factual circumstances of a determined or determinable natural person) that you yourself have made available. The processing and use of your personal data only takes place in order to fulfil and handle the services agreed upon in the contract as well as the processing of your enquiries. After the contract has been fully concluded the data is saved for the period of safekeeping in consideration of fiscal and commercial law. After this period has ended your data will be deleted unless you have explicitely agreed to further processing and use.

Use of your email address for sending newsletters
Irrespective of the implementation of a contract we only use your email address for our own advertising purposes to send direct mail. If you do not agree with this, you can object the usage at any time. This objection can be declared by any means of communication, not just email. However, we must receive this objection to bring it into effect. This will not incur in any other costs than the standard transmission costs according to base rates. The contact details for the exercise of such objection are available under our company details as well as under a link inside the newsletter. Your email address will be deleted afterwards.
