Temporary cookies are deleted automatically after a certain period of inactivity (defined session timeout). Inactivity means that you have no longer visited our website in the meantime. The defined session timeout is usually three years from your first identification by the temporary cookie.

disclosure according to art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. f) of the GDPR is necessary to assert, exercise and defend legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding and legitimate interest in not disclosing your data;

10. Encryption/data security
- 1. Your data are collected, processed and used via our website exclusively in encrypted form using SSL encryption (so-called Secure Socket Layer). SSL is used to encrypt the continuous data stream on the Internet between the server and a user’s browser in order to prevent “surreptitious interception and reading” – within the bounds of technical possibility. You can tell an SSL connection, among other aspects, by the fact that the URL is marked with “https://” in the address bar of your browser and/or a “padlock symbol” (icon) appears next to the address bar of our web browser. By clicking on the icon, you can obtain further information about the encryption and/or the SSL certificate used, depending on the browser you are using.
- 2. We wish to point out that it is not possible to fully guarantee data security by means of email communication. Delivery by post or messenger may be preferable for the transmission of confidential information.
- 3. Furthermore, we use all reasonable technical and organisational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are constantly improved and further developed in line with technological progress.
11. Deletion of the data/restriction of data processing
In principle, your data will be erased if your consent has been withdrawn or they are no longer required for the purpose of data processing and there is also no longer a legitimate interest in their continued storage and processing. If, however, these data still require to be stored owing to existing statutory, official, or contractual obligations (e.g. warranty, financial accounting), the data processing will be restricted by marking and blocking these data.
