1. Gathering of Personal Data During Use for Information
(1) If the website is used merely for the purposes of information, meaning if you do not sign in, register or otherwise transfer information to us for the use of the website, we do not gather personal data, except for the data that is transmitted by your browser. The purpose of this data gathering is to enable you to visit the website and ensure the functionality of the website. Moreover, the data serves for the optimisation of the website and for ensuring the security of our information technology systems. This data includes:

(2) In addition, when the website is used, cookies, web beacons and/or pixel (or comparable functions for the transmission of event data) will be stored on your computer if this is required for technical purposes or you have consented to the storing. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard drive as attributed to the browser you use and by means of which the people setting the cookie (we in this case) receive certain information.

Some elements on our webpage require that the retrieving browser can also be identified after switching pages.

If additional voluntary information can be provided, this is marked accordingly. We will gather, process and use only the personal data, which is required for your use of the website and/or the performance of a contract concluded with us or data that you have provided yourself.

(3) The personal data is stored and processed within the European Union, except for the data gathered by the third-party providers named below.
