Cookies

We and our partners use cookies to provide appropriate services. This also applies when you visit our website or access our services.

A "cookie" is a small data package that is assigned to your device when you visit a website from this website. Cookies are useful and can be used for various purposes. These include e.g. easier navigation between different pages, automatic activation of certain functions, saving your settings and optimised access to our services. The use of cookies also enables us to show you relevant advertising tailored to your interests and to collect statistical information on your use of our services.

This website uses the following types of cookies:

  • "Session cookies", which ensure normal system use. Session cookies are only stored for a limited time during a session and are deleted from your device when you close your browser.
  • "Permanent cookies" which are only read by the website and are not deleted when you close the browser window, but are stored on your computer for a certain period of time. This type of cookie enables us to identify you on your next visit and, for example, to save your settings.
  • "Third party cookies", which are set by other online services that have their own content on the page you visit. These could be, for example, external web analytics companies that record and analyse access to our website.

 Cookies do not contain any personal data that identifies you, but the personal data we store may be linked by us to the data contained in the cookies. You can remove cookies via the device settings of your device. To do so, follow the corresponding instructions. Please note that disabling cookies may limit certain functions when using our website.

The tool we use is based on the technology of Snowplow Analytics. The information we collect about your use of our website includes, for example, how often users visit the website or which areas of the website are visited. The tool we use does not collect any personal information and is used by our web hosting and service providers solely to improve their own offerings.

Use of script libraries (Google Web Fonts)

To ensure that our content is displayed correctly and graphically appealing in every browser, we use script and font libraries such as Google Web Fonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts) for this website. Google Web Fonts are cached in your browser so they only need to be loaded once. If your browser does not support Google Web Fonts or denies access, content will be displayed in a default font.

When you access script or font libraries, we automatically connect to the library operator. There is a theoretical possibility that this operator may collect data. Currently it is not known whether and for what purpose the operators of the respective libraries actually collect data. You can find the privacy policy of the Google Library operator here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy.

Collection of data by third parties

This policy covers only the use and disclosure of information that we collect from you. If you post data on other websites or disclose data to third parties on the Internet, different rules may apply. You should therefore always read the terms and conditions and privacy policy carefully when you disclose information.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the business practices of companies that we do not own or control, or to anyone other than our employees and associates, including third parties to whom we disclose such information as described in this Privacy Policy.

How do we protect your data?

We implement the security measures on the website with great care and protect your data. We use industry standard procedures and policies to ensure the protection of information collected and stored and to prevent unauthorized use of such information. We also require third parties to comply with similar security requirements in accordance with this Privacy Policy. While we take reasonable steps to protect information, we cannot be responsible for the actions of those who have gained unauthorized access to or misuse of our website and we make no express or implied warranty that we will be able to prevent such access.

Transfer of data outside the European Economic Area

Please note that some recipients may not be located in the European Economic Area. If this is the case, we will only transfer your data to countries approved by the European Commission with an adequate level of data protection or by legal agreement to ensure an adequate level of data protection.

Advertising

When you access our Web site, we may serve ads using third-party ad serving technology. This technology uses your usage data from the services to serve ads (for example, by placing third-party cookies in your web browser).

You can opt-out of many third-party ad networks, including those operated by members of the Network Advertising Initiative ("NAI") and the Digital Advertising Alliance ("DAA"). For information about the practices of NAI and DAA members, your options regarding the use of such information by these companies, and how to opt out of third-party ad networks operated by NAI and DAA members, please visit their respective websites: http://optout.networkadvertising.org/#!/ and http://optout.aboutads.info/#!/.

Marketing

We may use your personal information such as your name, e-mail address, telephone number, etc. ourselves or forward it to an external sub-contractor to provide you with promotional materials regarding our services that may be of interest to you.

We respect your right to privacy. Therefore, these marketing materials will always give you the opportunity to unsubscribe from further mailings. If you unsubscribe, your email address or telephone number will be removed from our marketing distribution lists.

Please note that even after you unsubscribe from receiving our marketing emails, we will continue to send you emails with important information that do not include an unsubscribe option. This includes maintenance or administrative notices.

We may disclose information in the event of a business transaction (such as the sale of a substantial portion of the business, a merger, consolidation or asset sale).
