Collection, use and disclosure of personal data

Every time you access our Internet portal or retrieve a file stored in the Internet portal, this is logged. This information is stored for internal system-related and statistical processes. If you have provided us with personal data, we will only use it to answer your enquiries, to process your contracts and registrations and for technical administration.


We use cookies on our website to identify recurring use of our service by the same user/Internet subscriber. Cookies are small text files which your web browser saves and stores on your computer. They are used to optimise our website and our services. For the most part they are "session cookies", which are deleted at the end of your visit. In some cases, however, these cookies provide information so that you can be automatically recognised on a subsequent visit. This form of identification is based on the IP address saved in cookies. The information obtained in this manner is used to optimise our services and make it easier for you to access our website. You can prevent cookies from being installed by selecting the appropriate setting in your browser; however, please note that if you do, you may not be able to enjoy the full functionality of our website.

Server data

For technical reasons, the following data, which your web browser transfers to us or to our web space provider, is collected (in the form of server log files):

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Web page from which you visited us (referrer URL)
  • Web page you are visiting
  • Date and time of your visit
  • Your Internet Protocol (IP) address (anonymised)

This anonymous data is stored separately from any personal data you may have provided and therefore cannot be used to identify a specific individual. The data is evaluated for statistical purposes so that we can optimise our website and our services.

AWStats analytics tool

We use the analytics tool AWStats on our website. This analytics software enables usage information to be determined for a website without using cookies. To do this, the program evaluates the log files generated by the relevant browser. These files contain the data listed under "Server data". This data is not merged with other data, which means that it is not possible to identify an individual. The data is not passed on to third parties.

Use of MailChimp

Newsletter consent

Our newsletter provides regular news and information about our services. To receive our newsletter, you will need a valid e-mail address. We will then check the e-mail address that you have entered to verify that you are the actual holder of the e-mail address specified and that the holder of this address consents to receive the newsletter. When you subscribe to our newsletter, we will store your IP address along with the registration date and time. This is a security precaution on our part in case a third party misuses your e-mail address and attempts to subscribe to our newsletter without your knowledge. The data that is obtained in this way will not be aligned with data that may be collected by other components of our website.
