Storage of the information recorded when forms are filled in
If you send data to us under the category Contact, we ask you to state your name, your address or your Email address and other personal data. We save this data. Not all information is obligatory information. Obligatory information is marked with the symbol *.

Your Emails and faxes will reach the operator of this website via the providers. The operator does not forward submitted data on to third parties, and does not use it for other purposes.

Note on analysis and statistics
This website uses Piwik, an open-source analysis tool, in order to generate statistical assessments on the utilisation of the website. Here Piwik uses so-called “Cookies”, text files which are stored on the user’s computer and which permit an analysis of the user’s utilisation of the website. This gives us the possibility to optimise the website for you and to make it more user-friendly. The system stores the collected data (amongst other things the time, the pages called up, the browser used, and the operating system) in a database. The generated assessments are completely anonymised and cannot be used to identify individual people. IP addresses are rendered unrecognisable before they are put into the database, in order to fulfil the legal regulations. No links are made between the stored data and other data sources, and it is not forwarded on to third parties. Users can prevent the use of the cookies by setting the browser software appropriately. However, this may in this case mean that not all functions of this website can be used to their full extent.

Applications for a job offer in one of our facilities may be forwarded on to employees within the facility if applicable.
