We appreciate your interest in our website. Protecting your privacy is very important to us. Below we provide detailed information about the handling of your data.

1. Access Data and Hosting

You can visit our web pages without providing any personal information. Each time a web page is called up, the web server merely automatically stores a so-called server log file, which contains, for example, the name of the requested file, your IP address, date and time of retrieval, amount of data transferred, and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the retrieval. These access data are evaluated exclusively for the purpose of ensuring the trouble-free operation of the site and improving our offer. This serves to protect our predominantly legitimate interests in the correct presentation of our offer in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR. All access data are processed as long as necessary for the above purposes.

Hosting

The services for hosting and displaying the webpage are partly provided by our service providers as part of processing on our behalf. Unless otherwise explained in this privacy policy, all access data and all data collected in forms provided on this webpage are processed on their servers. If you have any questions about our service providers and the basis of our cooperation with them, please contact the contact option described in this privacy policy.

Our service providers are located and/or use servers in the following countries for which the European Commission has determined an adequate level of data protection by decision: Israel, South Korea, USA.

There is a decision of the European Commission on an adequate level of data protection for the USA as a basis for a third-country transfer, provided that the respective service provider is certified. A certification exists.
