The following information is logged: the name of the file accessed, date and time of access, data volume transmitted, report on successful access, web browser and domain seeking access.

Additional personal data are only collected where you provide them voluntarily, e.g. as part of an enquiry or registration procedure.

Where you have provided us with personal data, we shall use such data only for the purpose of responding to your enquiries, to implement any contracts concluded with you, and for technical administration. Your personal data will be released to third parties, or otherwise transmitted, only where this is necessary for the purpose of implementing the contract (in particular the provision of order data to suppliers), for the purpose of invoicing, or where you have given your prior consent. You may withdraw your consent for future transactions at any time. The personal data stored will be deleted when you withdraw your consent to their storage, when knowledge of the data is no longer required to fulfill the purpose for which their storage was intended, or where storage is inadmissible on other legal grounds.

Upon written request, we shall be pleased to inform you of the personal data stored in relation to yourself.

Note on security
We take all possible technical and organizational precautions to ensure that we store your personal data in such a way that they cannot be accessed by third parties. However, we are unable to guarantee 100% data security when communication takes place via e-mail, and therefore recommend that you send all confidential information by conventional post.
