We record: the names of the files retrieved; dates and times of their retrieval; quantities of data transmitted; notifications of successful file retrieval; web browsers used; pages visited; and querying domains.

We also log the IP addresses from which queries are submitted. However, this website uses an IP anonymisation process and stores your IP address in abbreviated form, making it impossible to associated it with a specific person.

Under certain circumstances, the personal data you provide when contacting us may be recorded, used and stored in context of the provisions of the Telemedia Law and the Federal Data Protection Act. You are free to revoke consent to this at any time.

Your personal data will only be forwarded or otherwise transmitted to third parties if this is necessary for contract fulfilment purposes (in particular, forwarding order data to suppliers and/or service providers, etc.) or for billing purposes, or else with your prior consent.

We use this information to determine how attractive our website is, so that we can continuously improve its contents.

It is also possible to use the website without cookies. Most browsers are set by default to accept cookies automatically. However, you can deactivate cookie storage, or set your browser to notify you before cookies are stored.

Data privacy statement related to usage of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored on your computer, which make it possible to analyse your usage of the website. Generally speaking, cookies transmit information generated on your usage of this website to a Google server in the USA, where it is then stored. However, this website uses IP anonymisation, so Google will first abbreviate your IP address within a Member State of the European Union or another Contracting State to the European Economic Area Agreement.

Only in exceptional cases will your entire IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. On our orders, Google will use this information to evaluate your usage of the website in order to compile reports on website activity, and to provide the website operator with additional services in connection with website and Internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser in context of Google Analytics will not be associated with any other Google data.

You can adjust your browser settings so as to prevent cookies from being stored on your computer; however, please be advised that this may prevent you from using all features of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent the data generated by the cookie in relation to your website usage (incl. your IP address) from being submitted to Google, and thus prevent Google from processing this data, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under:
