Every web server automatically registers accesses to websites. When visiting our website, his web server temporarily records the domain name or IP address of the enquiring computer, as well as the access date, the file name and the URL which you have accessed, the HTTP answer code and the website from which you are visiting his, as well as any bytes transferred during the connection, for the purpose of system security. Conclusions about your person or individual behavior are not possible. Personal data which go beyond this scope are not collected, unless such disclosures are expressly provided by you within the framework of an online-order or registration. He handles your data in a responsible manner and in compliance with legal regulations.

In order to design the website to better meet your needs and to gather certain data, he uses a variety of technology, including so-called “cookies”. Cookies serve to simplify the use of the internet as well as communication.
Cookies are small text files (max. size 4 KB), which his website sends to your browser and which are then indexed in your computer to be stored there as an anonymous answer-back code. The purpose of these cookies is, among other things, to improve the control of the connection during your visit to his web pages and provide more effective support when you return to his website. Without this temporary “intermediate storage”, some data entries which have already been made would have to be repeated for some applications. Cookies only contain the data that a server gives out and/or that the user gives upon request (e.g. structure: details pertaining to domain, path, expiration date, cookie name and value). They therefore only consist of technical information, no personal data. A cookie cannot spy out a hard disk.
If you wish, you can restrict the storage of all cookies through your web browser or decide yourself via bulletin, whether you want to allow a storage or not. The rejection of cookies can, however, result in some pages not being correctly displayed.
With the use of his internet pages, you consent to the storage and use of your data as described above. Through the entry of your personal data, you express your consent to the processing and use of the data as described.
