Personal data

Our website can generally be used without providing personal data. We collect personal data in the context of data avoidance and data economy only to the extent and for as long as is necessary for the use of our website and services, or as prescribed by law. Insofar as personal data (e.g. name, address or email address) is collected on our website, this is always done on a voluntary basis as far as possible. We take the protection of your personal data seriously and strictly adhere to the relevant legal regulations and this data protection declaration when collecting and processing personal data. If the purpose of data collection ceases to exist or if the legal storage period has expired, the data collected will be blocked or deleted. Please note that data on the Internet is generally not always transmitted securely. Protection in data exchange cannot be guaranteed, especially in e-mail traffic.
You can object to the future processing of your data in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR at any time.

Information, deleting and blocking of data

You will receive information about the personal data we have stored about you, the origin, recipient and purpose of data collection and data processing at any time free of charge. You also have the right to request that your data be corrected, blocked or deleted. This does not apply to data that is stored due to legal regulations or that is required for the proper conduct of business. So that a data lock can be implemented at any time, data are kept in a lock file for control purposes. If data is not recorded by a statutory archiving obligation, we will delete your data at your request. If the archiving obligation applies, we will block your data. For all questions and concerns regarding the correction, blocking or deletion of personal data, please contact the address given in the imprint.

We use Google AdWords, an online advertising program from Google Inc., on our website. Conversion tracking is also used. With this tool, Google AdWords sets a cookie on your PC when you come to our website via a Google ad. The cookie is no longer valid after 30 days. It does not serve any personal traceability. If you visit our website and the cookie is still working, we and Google will recognize that you clicked on the relevant ad and were redirected to our site. Each Google AdWords customer is assigned a different cookie. Cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The data collected through conversion cookies is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers. As customers, we find out the total number of users who responded to our ad and were then directed to a website that was provided with a conversion tracking tag. During this process, we do not receive any information with which we could personally identify you as a user.

If you reject the tracking process, the Google conversion tracking cookie can be deactivated via your Internet browser. If necessary, use the browser's help function for further information. You can find more information about Google's data protection regulations at
