Purpose of data processing and persons concerned:
Data processing aims at the presentation of our consultancy and service offer, the provision of a periodical newsletter and the response to inquiries of visitors of our website. Persons concerned by data processing are persons visiting our website.

We process the following data:
You may generally use our website without providing personal information. Each time our website is accessed, usage and traffic data will be transmitted by the respective Internet browser and will be recorded in server log-data, however. Log-data comprise e.g. the IP-address of the device you are using for accessing our website, the type of your browser, your system configuration, date and time specifications. The webhosting provider initiates such processing for own purposes. We cannot trace those data to a specific person and do not have ordered such tracing of data.

We collect your personal data only if you provide them yourself while submitting questions or messages via our contact form, or if you subscribe to our newsletter. We will not transfer these data to third parties without your consent.

We record and use your personal data that you have provided in the contact form only for processing your inquiry. We record and use your master data (name, address), your contact details (phone, fax, email address) as well as the content of your inquiry. Upon finalisation of your inquiry we delete your personal data, or block them in case legal retention periods do not allow deletion. Once the retention period has expired we will delete the respective data routinely and in accordance with legal requirements.

In case you subscribe to our newsletter, you will indicate an email-address to which the newsletter shall be sent. For an effective subscription we apply the so-called double-opt-in process. We will record the subscription to the newsletter, the distribution of a request for confirmation of the subscription by email and the receipt of the response to that request. For the duration of your subscription we will record and use your name and your email-address you have stated for this purpose. We will use this email-address only for the distribution of our newsletter. If necessary, we will inform you on technical details relevant for registration or distribution of the newsletter via email. We will record your email-address as long as you unsubscribe from the distribution list. You may unsubscribe at any time, either by using the dedicated link in the cover email to the newsletter or by sending a separate message to the contact address indicated in our imprint or using our > Contact form. With your withdrawal from subscription you object to future use of your email-address by us. We will delete your email-address immediately after having received your withdrawal.
