Data protection information
Welcome to our website. We thank you for your interest in our company. So that you can feel comfortable about our handling of your personal data, we are transparent about what happens to the data we collect and what security measures we take to protect it. In addition, we provide information about your statutory rights in relation to the processing of this data.
When you visit our website, we do not usually require any personal data from you. We make a record only of the name of your Internet Service Provider and of the web pages that you visit on our site. Your anonymity as a web user is not affected, as we evaluate this information for statistical purposes only (e.g. number of requests for each individual web page).
We therefore only collect personal data when you provide these voluntarily, for example when placing an order.
At the current time, this data is transmitted without encryption, so we cannot rule out the possibility of unauthorised third parties reading this data while they are being transmitted. However, the option is available of using alternative communication channels (e.g. letter or fax) which provide more security than unencrypted email.
Encryption of e-mail communication
For secure transfer of applicant data via e-mail, we offer you the encryption method S/MIME. You can find the necessary public keys here:

We will only collect, process or use data for the purposes of advice, advertising or market research if you have previously given us your consent to do so. You can, of course, withdraw your consent at any time.
Use and dissemination of personal data/limitation to specified purpose
All personal data that we receive from you while you are using our website will be collected, processed and used for the specified purpose only. We will make sure that any such activity is within the scope of relevant current legislation and that we have your consent.
Right to information
On request, we can also notify you in writing as to whether we hold personal data about you and if so, what data we hold.
Links to other providers
Our website also includes - clearly identifiable - links to websites of other companies. Although we provide links to other sites, we have no influence over the content on the linked pages. We therefore cannot guarantee or be held liable for said content. The respective provider or operator of the website is responsible for the content on the linked pages. At the time of linking, the pages were checked for potential breaches of the law or identifiable infringements. We did not identify any unlawful content at that time. However, it is not possible to constantly monitor the content of linked pages without specific cause to suspect a violation of the law. If a legal infringement is brought to our attention, such links will be removed without delay.
In order to ensure that data held by us which relate to our employees/customers/suppliers are protected from accidental or deliberate modification, loss or destruction and from access by unauthorised individuals, we have taken appropriate technical and organisational measures. The security level is constantly reviewed in consultation with security experts and adapted to new security standards.
