Right to data portability
You have the right to request the data we process automatically with your agreement or in the performance of a contract to be handed over in a conventional, machine readable format to you or a third party. If you request your data to be transferred directly to another responsible person, this request will be fulfilled only when the technology permits this.
SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and the protection of transfers involving confidential data, e.g. purchase orders or requests that you submit to us as the website owner, this site employs SSL or TLS encryption. An encrypted link in your browser’s address bar is prefixed with a lock symbol and “https://”, instead of “http://”. Once SSL or TLS encryption has been enabled, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by a third party.
Information, quarantine, deletion
The applicable statutory provisions give you the right at any time and free of charge to information on your stored personal details, their origin and recipients, and the purpose they are processed for, and possibly also the right to rectify, quarantine, or delete these. If you have any further questions on the subject of personal details, you may contact us at any time at the address given in the site notice.

4. Data collected on our website
The provider of these webpages collects and stores data automatically in so called server logfiles, which your browser then transfers to us. These are:
• Browser type and browser version
• Operating system used
• Referrer URL
• Host name of the accessing computer
• Time the server request was made
• IP address These data are not collated with other data sources.
The processing of these data complies with Art. 6(1) f GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or for preliminary contract measures.
When you use our contact form to send us a request, the details you have entered, including your contact data, will be stored on our systems for the purpose of handling this request and contacting you with any subsequent queries. We do not pass on these data without your agreement. The details you enter on the contact form are therefore processed exclusively with your agreement (Art. 6 a GDPR). You may revoke this agreement at any time. All that is needed is a formless email notification to us. The lawfulness of the data processing procedures prior to this revocation remains unaffected. The details you enter on the contact form remain on our systems until you request their deletion, revoke your agreement to their storage, or the purpose of this data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Obligatory statutory provisions – specifically retention periods – remain unaffected.
