Thank you for your interest in our company and for visiting our website. We take data protection very seriously and would like to inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data processed by us below.
Our website can generally be used without the need to submit personal details. If you provide us with personal data e.g. via our contact form or by e-mail on a voluntary basis, the processing will be in accordance with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).
We have taken technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data processed via our website is protected as completely as possible. Please note, however, that data transmissions via the Internet can always involve security gaps on which we have no influence, and therefore absolute protection particularly in e-mail traffic cannot be guaranteed.

If you access a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated into the page. Through this integration, Facebook receives the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook profile or are not logged in to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can immediately assign your visit to our website to your Facebook profile. If you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the "Like" button or commenting, this information is also sent directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also published on your Facebook profile and displayed to your Facebook friends, for example. If you do not want Facebook to associate the information collected through our website directly with your Facebook profile, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website. You can also object to the loading of Facebook plugins and thus any future data processing operations described above with add-ons for your browser, e.g. with the script blocker "NoScript" (http://noscript.net/).

Deletion and blocking of personal data
We process and store personal data only for the period of time necessary to achieve the storage purpose (e.g. orderly business transactions) or which corresponds to a statutory storage/retention period. If the storage purpose no longer applies or if a statutory storage/retention period expires, we will delete the personal data. If statutory storage/retention obligations continue to exist, e.g. after an orderly business transaction or final response to your requests, we restrict processing, e.g. by blocking your data. Insofar as mandatory commercial and tax retention periods are to be observed, the duration of the storage of certain data can be up to ten years.
