2.1. Personal data
Article 4 (1) GDPR defines personal data as any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. Personal data includes, for example, name, address, telephone number, email address.
When you visit this website, your Internet browser will send usage data to our servers. Usage data is logged in so-called log files by our servers. In this respect, the following will be stored: the data and time, the type of request, the log type and access status, the size and name of the file, the IP address from which the request originated, the referrer URL (information on the website from which you have arrived at our website), information on the Internet browser used (e.g. which browser is used, the version number of this browser and the type of encryption). We use log files to monitor the functionality and performance of our website and to further develop and improve this website. As a result, any malfunctioning, for example, will be recorded and subsequently remedied by us. Furthermore, the storage of data in log files takes place for security reasons to ensure secure operation of our system. Article 6 (1), f) GDPR is the legal basis for this data processing. The essential justified interest lies in securing the functionality of the website and ensuring secure operation of our servers. The users' IP addresses will be deleted or anonymised after a maximum of 10 days.
2.3. Contact by e-mail or fax message
If you contact us by e-mail or fax, you also send us personal data in addition to the actual message. This is in any case your e-mail address and the further personal data transmitted to us about you by e- mail or fax, such as your name and contact details as well as the contents of the e-mails or fax messages. The provision of a valid e-mail address or a valid fax number as well as your name is necessary in order to identify you as the questioner and to be able to answer your enquiry.
We process and store this data for the purpose of responding to your enquiry. The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR. In this respect, our legitimate interest is to properly process and respond to your enquiries. The personal data collected by us for the purpose of processing and answering your enquiry will be deleted after we have answered your enquiry. Any further storage of your personal data will only take place in accordance with Art. 6 (1) c) GDPR and Art. 17 (2) GDPR insofar as we are legally obliged to do so due to storage and documentation obligations.

3.2. Technically essential cookies
Technically essential cookies are cookies that are absolutely necessary for the use of the website and for whose use an essential justified interest exists. The legal basis for the use of technically essential cookies is Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR. The essential justified interest lies in securing the functionality of the website. We use the following technically essential cookies:

3.3. Technically essential cookies from third-party providers
If you want to play YouTube videos embedded on this website, cookies are also set. The cookies are not initially set when you call up the respective page. They are only set as a result of an action by you, e.g. when you play an embedded YouTube video.
We use the Cloudflare application from Cloudflare Inc, 101 Townsend St., San Francisco, CA 94107 USA on this website to make our website faster and more secure. Cloudflare offers a worldwide distributed content delivery network with DNS. Cloudflare creates copies of our website and places them on their own servers. This ensures that when you visit our website, it is delivered from the server that can display our website the fastest. Cloudflare simultaneously blocks threats and limits abusive bots and crawlers that waste our bandwidth and server resources or try to attack our systems in other ways.
In order to provide this service, the entire data transfer between your browser and our websites flows through the infrastructure of Cloudflare. Cloudflare delivers the content of our website and analyzes the data stream to fend off attacks.
For this purpose Cloudflare receives information about IP addresses and DNS protocol data. For additional security reasons Cloudflare also uses a cookie. The cookie is absolutely necessary for Cloudflare's security functions and cannot be deactivated.
Guaranteeing the security and availability of our website represents a legitimate interest on our part in accordance with Article 6 (1), f) GDPR. Regarding the passing on of data, we have concluded a corresponding agreement with Cloudflare for contractually agreed upon data processing according to Article 28 GDPR.
Under normal circumstances Cloudflare stores your data for up to seven days. However, if your IP address triggers a security warning at Cloudflare, exceptions to the above mentioned storage period may occur.
Since Cloudflare stores personal data on servers in the USA as well as in the European economic area, we have also concluded EU standard contract clauses with Cloudflare regarding the transfer of personal data to the USA. A resolution by the European Commission on the adequacy of data protection levels in the USA is currently not available. You can request a copy of the EU standard contract clauses from us. Cloudflare only receives anonymized data with the IP address. This is an additional protective measure in the event of access to your data by security services based in the USA.
