Data Protection Provisions

The operators of these web pages take the protection of your personal data seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the legal data protection provisions as well as this data protection declaration.

The use of our website is normally possible without providing personal data. If our web pages contain personal information (for example, name, address or e-mail) this is always on a voluntary basis as far as possible. This data is not transferred to third parties without your explicit consent.

We hereby point out that data transfer on the internet (e.g. e-mail communication) may have security flaws. Complete protection of data against third party access is not possible.


The web pages sometimes use cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and contain no viruses. Cookies are used to make our website more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are deleted automatically after the end of your visit. Other cookies remain on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser the next time you visit.

You can set up your browser so that you are notified about cookies being saved and only allow cookies in individual cases, activate the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally reject acceptance, as well as the automatic deletion of cookies when you close your browser. When deactivating cookies the functionality of this website can be restricted.

Server log files

The provider of the website automatically records and saves information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transfers to us. They are:

  • The type/version of browser
  • the operating system used
  • referrer URL
  • the host name of the accessing computer
  • the time of the server request

This data cannot be allocated to particular people. This data is not combined with other data sources. We reserve the right to check this data if we are aware of specific indications of illegal use.

Contact form

If you send us requests via the contact form, the details on this form, including the contact data you have provided, are saved by us in order to process the request and in the event of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

Data protection declaration for the use of Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider of this service is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". They are text files which are saved on your computer and allow an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a server of Google in the USA and saved there.

More information about the handling of user data at Google Analytics can be found in the data protection declaration of Google:

Processing order data

We have concluded an agreement on processing order data with Google and implement the strict provisions of the German data protection authorities concerning the use of Google Analytics.

IP anonymization

We use the "Activation of IP anonymization" function on this website. Google therefore first shortens your IP address within the Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states of the EEA. Only in exceptions is the full IP address sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google uses this information, on behalf of the operator of this website, to compile reports about website activities and to provide further services for the website operator associated with the usage of the internet and the website. The IP address transferred by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not compiled with other data of Google.

Information, deletion and blocking

You have the right, at any time, to receive free information about your saved personal data, their origin and recipients, and the purpose of the data processing, as well as a right to correct, block or delete this data. For this purpose, as well as in the event of other questions about personal data, you can contact us at any time on the address stated in the legal notice.

Rejection of advertising mails

Permission to use contact details which have been published within the context of the legal notice requirements is hereby expressly denied for the sending of publicity and information materials which have not explicitly been requested. The operator of the web pages expressly reserves the right to take legal action in the case of the sending of unsolicited promotional information, by means of spam e-mail for example.
