Data privacy
Thank you for visiting our website. We would like to take this opportunity to explain our online data privacy policy.

The protection of your privacy is always of utmost importance to the ZKRD. Compliance with statutory data privacy provisions is therefore a matter of course. It is also important to us that you are always aware of what information we save and when, and how such information is used.

With the exception of the contact form, our public website can be used without disclosing any personal information. To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods. Please note that the transmission of data via the internet (such as communication by e-mail) may not be completely secure. It is not possible to wholly safeguard such information from third-party interception.

To improve the accessibility and performance of our website, we collect and evaluate certain pieces of information by depositing small files (cookies) on your computer. These files supply us with information about the number of visitors to each individual website, session duration, search terms entered, settings and navigation. Your internet service provider, chosen browser, and the date and time of your visit are also logged. Two types of cookies are used for this purpose: temporary cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser (session cookies). Permanent cookies have an expiration date set in the future.

No personal details are included in this information, which is used for statistical purposes only. The information will not be shared with third parties - either for commercial or non-commercial purposes. Using your browser settings, you can decide for yourself whether cookies should be blocked or whether you receive a warning before they are saved. The performance of this website could be compromised as a result of disabling cookies.

To this end, the information on the use of this website generated by the cookie is saved on the server of our web hosting service in Germany. Your IP address will be anonymised before it is saved.
