1. Subject matter of this privacy notice

Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in learning more on our services.

The protection of your personal data (the "data") is a major and very important concern for us. In the following, we would like to provide detailed information on what data are collected when you visit our website and use the services we offer online and how they are processed or used, as well as what technical and organizational precautions we have taken to protect your privacy.



2. Collection and use of your data

When you use our website, it is not generally necessary for you to disclose personal data.

Rather, in this case we only collect and use  the data your Internet browser automatically transmits, such as:

  • the date and time when you accessed our website
  • the type of browser you use
  •  the browser settings
  • your operating system
  •  the web page you most recently visited
  • the transmitted data volume and the access status (file transmitted, file not found, etc.) and
  • your IP address.

We collect and use these data when you visit us solely in an anonymous form. This is required to allow you to use the web pages you access, and is used for statistical purposes and to improve our online services. We only store your IP address for the duration of your visit, and no personalized evaluation is made.



3. Use of cookies

We use cookies for our website. Cookies are small text files that are sent to your browser when you visit our website and which are kept on your PC for future visits.

We use session cookies (also called temporary cookies), that is, cookies that are only temporarily stored on our website during your visit. The purpose of these cookies is to allow us to continue to identify your computer when you visit our website and change from one web page to another, and to be able to determine when you leave our website.

Cookies are deleted as soon as you end your browser session.

You can change the settings on your browser to define whether cookies can be set and accessed.  For instance, you can completely deactivate the storage of cookies on your browser, limit this to certain websites or configure your browser so that it automatically notifies you as soon as a cookie is supposed to be set and then requests your response. However, being able to use the full function of our website makes it necessary on technical grounds that you allow session cookies.

We neither collect nor save personal data in cookies for these purposes, nor do we apply any technology that connects the information acquired through cookies with user data.
