These data will be processed for the following purposes:

- to analyse the system security and stability, and
- for further administrative purposes.
Our legitimate interest in the processing of these data follows out of the purposes for the collection of data listed above. Under any circumstances we will use the collected data in order to draw conclusions about persons involved. We will not combine these data with data from other sources. We reserve the right to check the data subsequently if substantial indications for illegal usage get known to us.
We use so-called cookies on our websites. Cookies are used to make our website more user-friendly, more effective and safer.

Cookies do not infect your computer and do not contain viruses or other malware. The data processed by cookies are necessary for the purposes described above to safeguard our legitimate interests as well as the interests of third parties.
Most cookie we use are so called „Session-Cookies“. They will be deleted automatically when you leave our website. Other cookies used for optimising the user-friendliness are set as temporary cookies or as cookies for statistical purposes; these remain stored on your computer until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser on your next visit.
You can configure your browser in a way that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only on a case-by-case-basis, that you reject cookies for specific cases or in general, and that cookies are deleted automatically when you close the browser.

If you contact us via the contact form on our website, this is possible only when you state your name and email-address (as well as the reference and your message for us). We will process and store the data form your request including your contact data for the purpose of answering your request and possible follow-up questions. We will not forward these data without your approval.
Data security by SSL-encryption
Our website uses SSL-encryption for reasons of security and for the protection of the transmission of confidential contents, like e.g. the questions via our contact form you can send to us. You can recognise an encrypted connection when the address-line of the browser switches from "http://" to "https://" and when the address-line contains a key-symbol.
When the SSL-encryption is activated, the data you send to us cannot be read by third parties.
Moreover, we use suitable technical and organisational security means to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulations, partial or total loss, destruction or unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are continually improved according to technological developments.

We will only transmit your personal data to third parties if:
- you have expressly agreed hereto,
- this is allowed by law and is necessary for the performance of a contract with you,
- there exists a legal obligation for the transmission, or
- the transmission is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims and there is no reason to believe that you have an overriding and legitimate interest that the data will not be distributed.
