Data protection policy

We are pleased by your interest in our homepage and our firm. However, despite careful internal controls, we cannot take responsibility for external links to foreign content. This also applies to featured pictures that may be covered by the rights of third parties but were passed on to us by customers for publication. This applies especially to the section on references.

The protection of your personal data during the inquiry, processing and use in connection with your visit to our home page is an important matter for us. Your data are protected in the framework of legal regulations. Below you will find information regarding what data was captured during your visit to our homepage and how this will be used:


1. Capture and processing of data

Every access to our homepage and every retrieval of data placed on our homepage is recorded. Storage serves internal system-related and statistical purposes. The following data is recorded: name of the dataset retrieved, date and time of retrieval, amount of data transferred, message regarding successful transfer, web browser and inquiring domain.

In addition, the IP address of the inquiring computer is recorded.

Additional personal data are only captured if you provide this voluntarily, either in the context of an inquiry or during registration.


2. Use and passing on of personal data

To the extent you have provided us with personal data, this will be used only in responding to your questions, to develop with you a completed contract and for technical administration.

Your personal data will only be passed along to third parties or otherwise transferred if this is necessary for purposes of developing a contract – in particular, passing order data along to suppliers – or if it is necessary for purposes of invoicing, or if you have agreed to it. You have the right to revoke your consent when made for an indefinite period at any time. The stored personal data can be deleted if you cancel your agreement to store this data, if it is no longer necessary to satisfy your purposes or if its retention is forbidden for other legal reasons.


3. Right to information

We will gladly respond to a written request for information about any personal data of yours that we have stored.


Security guidelines:

We make an effort to store your personal data by making use of all technical and organisational possibilities in such a way that they are not accessible by third parties.  We cannot guarantee complete data security for communications by E-Mail so we recommend that you communicate such information by postal mail.
