Privacy Policy

Modern information and communications technologies are playing an ever-increasing role in the activities of organisations such as R4CC. That is why we take the protection of your privacy, together with the personal data that you provide us with, very seriously. It goes without saying that we comply with the stipulations of the Federal Data Protection Law.


You can visit our websites without having to provide us with any personal data. We will be informed only of the name of your Internet service provider, the website from which you are visiting us and the website of ours that you are visiting. Personal data are gathered and processed only if you use particular services. The menu will notify you of this in detail.


Since we are constantly endeavouring to achieve a continuous process of improvement in both our service offerings and your own experience with our websites, we conduct statistical analyses of the above-mentioned general data. To do this, however, we also need to be aware of your own personal opinions and your environment. That is why you will be asked to provide additional information at several points. The information in question is voluntary and will, of course, be treated confidentially.


If you use services which are on offer, it is generally the case that only the data that we require to render those services will be gathered. If we ask you for more detailed data, the information in question is voluntary. The personal data are processed exclusively for the rendering of the requested service and for safeguarding our own justified commercial interests.


We will forward your personal data to third parties only as far as is absolutely necessary for the rendering of the requested service. Beyond that we will neither disclose, permit the use of, sell nor otherwise market your personal data to other companies or institutions without receiving an express declaration of consent from you. Other conditions shall apply if we are obliged by the law or a court judgment to disclose and communicate the data.



R4CC is not actively placing or evaluating cookies. Cookies are automatically set by internet providers to ensure the proper working of the system. You can delete these cookies after each session in your internet browser.



Personal data pertaining to children are not knowingly gathered or used in any way. We are not generally aware of the age of the users of our websites. We have, however, taken no specific steps to give special protection to such data.



We have taken technical and organisational steps to protect the personal data which you provided against loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorised access. All of our employees and third parties who are involved in data processing are obliged to observe the Federal Data Protection Law and the confidential treatment of personal data.


We reserve the right to amend this declaration at any time. This declaration shall not justify any contractual or other formal right vis--vis or by order of one party.
