General Information and Mandatory Information

Data Protection

For the operators of this website the protection of your personal data is very important. We treat your personal data as confidential and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this privacy policy.

If you use this website, various pieces of personal data will be collected. Personal information is any data with which you could be personally identified. This privacy policy explains what information we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this happens.

Please note that data transmitted via the internet (e.g. via email communication) may be subject to security breaches. Complete protection of your data from third-party access is not possible.

Revocation of Your Consent to The Processing of Your Data

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You may revoke your consent at any time with future effect. An informal email using the address given in the imprint making this request is sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.

Right to Data Portability

You have the right to have data which we process based on your consent or in fulfillment of a contract automatically delivered to yourself or to a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you require the direct transfer of data to another responsible party, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.

SSL or TLS Encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and for the protection of the transmission of confidential content, such as the inquiries you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection in your browser's address line when it changes from "http://" to "https://" and the lock icon is displayed in your browser's address bar.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information, Blocking, Deletion

As permitted by law, you have the right to be provided at any time with information free of charge about any of your personal data that is stored as well as its origin, the recipient and the purpose for which it has been processed.

You can contact us at any time using the address given in our legal notice if you have further questions on the topic of personal data.

Opposition to Promotional Emails

We hereby expressly prohibit the use of contact data published in the context of this website with regard to sending promotional and informational materials not expressly requested. The website operator reserves the right to take specific legal action if unsolicited advertising material, such as email spam, is received.

Data Collection on Our Website

Server Log Files

The website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to the website provider in "server log files". These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

The website provider stores the IP address for 7 days. The log files which we receive from the website provider to analyze how visitors use the site contains only anonymized host names and the IP addresses.

These data will not be combined with data from other sources.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract.

Request Form for an Evaluation License

Should you send us a request via the request form for an evaluation license, we will collect the data entered on the form, including the contact details you provide, to answer your question and any follow-up questions. We do not share this information without your permission.

An informal email using the address given in the imprint making this request is sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.

We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer pertains (e.g. after fulfilling your request). Any mandatory statutory provisions, especially those regarding mandatory data retention periods, remain unaffected by this provision.

To protect the request form for an evaluation license against misuse, we keep your IP address after submitting the request for not more than 7 days. The IP address will not be combined with your request for an evaluation license. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.

For uniform representation of fonts, this page uses web fonts provided by Google. When you open a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.
