Storage of data

In connection with your access to this website, data is only stored and processed for the duration of the communication process (e.g. IP address, date, time and pages viewed). The anonymised data is evaluated for statistical purposes. It is not passed on to third parties.

Furthermore, personal data (e.g. your name, e-mail address, etc.) will only be transmitted if you expressly and knowingly provide us with such information for specific purposes. They will only be processed, stored and forwarded to the extent necessary for the respective purpose or with your consent.


When calling up individual Internet pages, so-called temporary cookies are used to facilitate navigation. These session cookies do not contain any personal data. Session cookies expire at the end of the session. Other cookies expire later.

Data transfer

The secrecy of telecommunications also protects your e-mail content and form entries from unauthorised access and processing. We can ensure compliance with this for the SIMPORT project. However, we would like to point out that data transmission via the Internet can generally be recorded by other Internet operators and users. Personal data is therefore only transmitted in encrypted form wherever possible.

For this purpose as well as for further questions on the subject of data protection, you can contact the SIMPORT project at any time at the address given in the imprint.
