In order to use our website, you do not generally have to enter your personal data (e.g. name, address, e-mail address etc.). Where you do provide personal data, you do so on a purely voluntary basis, for example, in connection with an enquiry. We consider the protection of any personal data that we collect, process and use as a result of your visit to our website a high priority. Your data is protected in accordance with the law. Set out below is some information explaining which data is collected when you visit our website and how it is used:
1. Collection and processing of non-personal data
A log is created each time you access our website or download a file from it. This information is stored for internal system-related and statistical purposes. The following information is logged: the name of the file accessed, the date and time of the access, the volume of data transmitted as well as a report on the successful access, web browser used and the accessing domain.
In addition, the IP address of the accessing computer is also logged.
This access data is non-personal information and it is only stored for statistical purposes. Such data will not be combined with data from other sources.
2. Use and disclosure of personal data
Personal data means any information concerning the personal or material circumstances of an identified individual (name, address, telephone number etc.). We will only collect, store and use the personal data that you provide (e.g. in a contact form) to respond to your enquiries as well as any follow-up questions that you may have and for technical administration.
The collection, processing and use of your data is done in strict compliance with data protection legislation.
Your personal data will only be transferred or otherwise disclosed to a third party if this is necessary for the purpose of fulfilling a contract with you or if you have previously agreed to this or where this is required by law. You may, at any time, revoke your consent with effect for the future (see section 3 “Right to receive information”).
After the contractual relationship has terminated or if consent to data storage has been revoked, your personal data will be deleted once any statutory retention period has expired.
We will only store and process your data for advertising purposes with your prior consent. Should you no longer wish to have your data used for advertising purposes, you may revoke your consent at any time; in such case, we will block your data for these purposes.
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on our website, we will need you to provide us with a valid e-mail address and information that allows us to check whether you are the owner of the stated e-mail address or, as the case may be, whether the owner consents to receiving the newsletter.
