3. Data collection on our website
Websites use so-called cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our site more user-friendly, effective and secure.
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and stored by your browser. Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser the next time you visit.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally exclude and enable the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored in order to process the request and in case of follow-up questions. We will not share this information without your consent.
The processing of the data entered into the contact form is therefore exclusively based on your consent (Art. 6 (1) lit. DSGVO). You can withdraw this consent at any time. An informal message by e-mail to us is sufficient.
The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the withdrawal remains unaffected by the withdrawal. The information you provide in the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, withdraw your consent to storage or delete the purpose for data storage (for example, after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – especially retention periods – remain unaffected.
