Thank you for visiting our website. Protecting your personal data is immensely important to us. This website is operated by v.

Subject matter of data protection

The subject matter of data protection is personal data. According to § 3 (1) BDSG, personal data are any details relating to the personal or material circumstances of a certain or identifiable person, the data subject. This includes details such as the name, postal address, email address or telephone number, and in some cases also usage data, such as your IP address.

Extent of data collection and storage

In general, you do not need to provide any personal data in order to use our website.

Should you instruct us to provide a service, we collect and store your personal data only to the extent necessary to provide the service or to implement the contract.

After your brief has been completed and after expiry of provisions under tax, commercial and professional law, your data are deleted unless you have explicitly consented to them being stored and used beyond such dates.

Should you have subscribed to a newsletter with your email address, we allow ourselves to use your email address for our advertising purposes, over and above any implementation of contract, until you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Your attention will be drawn to the possibility of revoking consent each time a newsletter is sent out.

Collection and storage of usage data

To further improve our website, we reserve the right to collect and store data such as the date and time of a page view, the page from which you linked to our website, and similar data, unless you object to the collection and storage of such data. Such data are collected and stored in anonymous form, without the user of the website being personally identified. We further reserve the right to use cookies in order to collect and store usage data. These are small text files which are stored on your computer and which are used to save statistical information, such as the operating system, browser and IP address used, the webpage (referrer URL) used before and the tome the website was accessed. The data are collected and stored – if at all – only in anonymous or pseudonym form and cannot be traced back to you as a person.

Use of data for specified purposes

We collect, process and store your personal data only for the purposes for which you provided them. Your personal data will not be forwarded to third persons without your express consent, unless necessary to provide the service or to implement a contract. Data shall only be forwarded to government institutions or authorities where we are obliged by law to do so, or where a court decision obliges us to provide such information.

Likewise, we also take the in-house protection of data very seriously. Our employees and the service providers instructed by us have all been obliged to maintain confidentiality and to comply with the data protection laws.
