Dear visitors to our Internet portal,
Protecting your privacy is of the utmost importance to us. This why we designed our Internet offer to allow anonymous use. We only use and save information we receive during your visit to our website for internal purposes and to improve the design of our web pages. We will save the IP address transmitted by your web browser for seven days to recognise, narrow down and remove disruptions or errors (e.g., attacks to our server). After this period, your IP address will be deleted or anonymised. We only use IP addresses for the stated security purposes.
1.1 Usage Data
When you visit our website, so-called usage data will be saved on our web server temporarily as protocols to improve the quality of our web pages. This data consists of the
- page from which the file was requested,
- name of the file,
- time and date of the request,
- amount of data to be transferred,
- access status (file transferred, file not found),
- web browser type,
- IP address of the requesting computer.
1.3 Google Analytics
To design our website in a need-based manner, we create pseudonymous user profiles using Google Analytics. Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies," i.e., text files saved onto your computer that allow your use of the website to be analysed. The information on your use of the website generated by the cookie is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA where it is stored. However, because we activated IP anonymisation on our website, Google will first shorten your IP address in a member state of the European Union or in another state party to the European Economic Area Agreement. Only in exceptions will your full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the US and shortened there. Google will use this information to assess your use of this website, compile reports about website activity and perform additional services related to use of the website for us.
You may refuse the creation of pseudonymous user profiles at any time. You have several options for doing so:
- One option for refusing web analyses by Google Analytics is to use a so-called opt-out cookie which will instruct Google not to save or use your data for web analysis purposes. However, please note that web analyses will only be suspended while the opt-out cookie is saved by our browser. If you would like to use an opt-cut cookie, please click here.
- You can also prevent cookies used to create profiles from being saved through according browser settings.
- Depending on your browser, you can also install a browser add-on that prevents tracking. If you wish to do so, please click here and install the browser add-on.
To protect your data from unauthorised access, our web pages use encryptions. Your data is transferred from your computer to our server and vice versa through the Internet via a 256-bit TLS (Transport Layer Security) encryption. You can recognise this by the lock symbol next to your browser's status bar being closed and the address beginning with https://. We do not use encryptions when you merely exchange generally available information with us.

2.6 Data Subject Rights
Data subjects have the right to obtain
information about their personal data and to request the correction or deletion
of inaccurate data from the controller if a reason under Article 17 of the
General Data Protection Regulation exists, e.g., if data is no longer needed
for the stated purposes. Furthermore, data subjects have the right to restrict
the processing of their personal data if a requirement under Article 18 of the
General Data Protection Regulation is met. Data subjects also have the right to
data portability if a case under Article 20 of the General Data Protection
Regulation is present. If data is collected on the basis of Article 6(1) Point
e (data processing to perform tasks of public authorities or to protect public
interests) or Point f (data processing to safeguard legitimate interests), data
subjects have the right to object to the processing for reasons due to their
particular situation. We will then cease to process this personal data, unless
compelling legitimate grounds for the processing exist that override the
interests, rights and freedoms of the respective data subject or if the processing
is required for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

Data subjects have the right to ledge complaints with a supervisory authority if they believe that the processing of their data violates data protection regulations. Rights to lodge complaints may especially be exercised with supervisory authorities in a member state of the respective data subject's location or the place where the violation occurred.
