1.2 What is personal data ?
Personal data is information that can be used to find out your personal or factual circumstances (e.g. name, address, telephone number or e-mail address). Data that could not be used to identify you (or only with a disproportionate level of effort) is not classed as personal data, e.g. data that has been anonymised.

You can use a large part of our web presence without disclosing personal data. Access data are saved which have no personal connection, such as the name of your Internet service provider, the page from which you are visiting us, the name of the requested files and their access date. These data are exclusively evaluated with a view to improving our offering and gives no indication whatsoever of your identity.
However, insofar as you wish to take advantage of the services offered on our Internet presence, such as ordering a newsletter etc., it is necessary that you specify further data. This is the data required for the particular processing, such as your e-mail address for ordering a newsletter.
We use the data collected about you to provide the products and services we offer, to answer your questions and to operate and improve our websites and applications.

There is no further use of your personal data. Forwarding of your personal data to third persons or use of your data for advertising purposes without your consent does not take place (except in the case below) unless we are legally required to disclose data (information to criminal prosecution authorities and courts; information to public authorities which receive data on the basis of legal stipulations,e.g. social insurance providers, tax authorities etc.) or engage third parties professionally obliged to maintain secrecy in order to assert our claims. In particular, personal data are used as follows :
