We are pleased that you have visited our website. It is an important concern for us to protect any data originating from you, our customer or user of this website. For this reason, data privacy is also of great importance to us. We meet our high standards within the scope of the associated business processes by taking the relevant data privacy measures.

Handling personal data

Our Internet index includes the option of presenting company data on the Internet.

"Personal details" means information with the aid of which an individual can be identified, i.e. details that can be traced back to an individual. The latter include, for instance, the name, e-mail address or telephone number.

You can, in general, visit our website without our requiring personal details from you. Personal data is only gathered, used and passed on by us if the latter is statutorily permitted or the User has consented to such data being gathered. We do not pass on or sell your personal details, or otherwise transmit them to third parties./p>

Access data/server log files

We (or our web space provider) gather data on any access to our platform (server log files). Such access data includes the following:

  1. The date and time of the retrieval;
  2. the search criteria given by you;
  3. the name and size of the file retrieved;
  4. notification whether the retrieval was successful;
  5. the IP address assigned by your Internet service provider.

The log data is exclusively used for statistical evaluations, for the purpose of providing and optimising our range of services, as well as ensuring system security. We do, however, reserve the right to check the log data retrospectively if, based on specific evidence, we justifiably suspect illegitimate use. No log data is passed on to third parties.
