What are personal data? 

By ‘personal data’ we refer to any information which refers to an identified or identifiable natural person (subsequently referred to as ‘data subject’).

The collected data can be combined to ensure adequate service to your personal needs. 

Which data can we collect? 

The kind of information we collect depends on the context of your interactions with us, the method of contact, and the information provided by you. 

Data that is automatically transmitted when you are simply visiting our website 

When visiting, without filling out our contact form or transmitting information in any other way, your browser will automatically transmit information to our website server. This information is saved temporarily in a log file. The following information is recorded and stored until it is erased automatically, without any action on your part: 

  • IP-address of the accessing computer: through our website we keep track of your preferences based on your IP-address. We do not use this on a structural basis, but need this to ensure we can trace certain matters in our logs.
  • Date and time of access
  • Name and URL of the accessed files (pages you have visited on our website) 
  • Website from which the page was accessed (referrer URL)
