Use of cookies

Like many other websites, we also use so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. Based on the information contained in cookies, we can make navigation easier for you and enable the correct display of our web pages.

Under no circumstances will the data collected by us be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.

Use of Sentry

This website uses Sentry, a fault tracking service provided by Functional Software, Inc. "("Sentry"). If an unexpected error is detected while the site is running, the browser will send a record to Sentry to help us resolve the problem. In practice, this only affects about 1 / 10,000 of all requests. If a data record is transmitted to Sentry by a participant's browser, the server setting we have made ensures that the IP address is completely anonymized and that personal data such as e-mail addresses are automatically removed within the scope of technical possibilities before they are saved.

Safety measures

To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art security measures at administrative, physical and technical levels.

Change in our privacy policy

We reserve the right to adapt this data protection declaration so that it always complies with current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services. The new data protection declaration will then apply for your next visit.
