Data Protection Principles
We would like you to feel safe and comfortable when visiting our website. The protection of your private sphere is of great importance to us, because we understand data protection as a customer-oriented attribute of quality. The following data protection provisions are intended to inform you about how we handle the collection, processing, use, and disclosure of your personal data.
Usage data about visits to our webpages
We use the information that we obtain during your use of our webpages exclusively for statistical analyses and to defend against irregular inquiries made to our website. This helps us to adjust and optimize our webpages to your requirements. Personal user profiles are thereby not created. In this context we use the following usage data: the page from which the file was requested; the name of the file; the date and the time of the inquiry; the amount of transmitted data; the access status (file transmitted, file not found, etc.); a description of the type of web browser used; and an anonymised IP address (shortened by the last three digits). The shortened IP address of your computer is collected anonymously by etracker GmbH in Hamburg, a company contracted by us; it is therefore not analysed on a personal basis and is deleted automatically after 24 hours.
