Data Protection

We take data protection seriously

The protection of your privacy when we process your personal data is an important concern for us. When you visit our website, our web servers automatically store the IP of your Internet service provider, the website from which you visit us, the pages which you visit when you are on our website, as well as the date and duration of the visit. This information is essential for the technical transmission of the web pages and for secure server operation. No personalised evaluation of this data is carried out.

If you send us data via the contact form, this data is stored on our servers as part of the data back-up process. Your data will be used by us only to process your request. Your data will also be dealt with in the strictest of confidence. It will not be disclosed to third parties.

Personal data

Personal data is data about your person. This includes your name, address and email address. You do not have to disclose any personal data in order to be able to visit our Internet site. In some cases, we need your name and address as well as further information in order to be able to offer you the requested service.

The same applies if we supply you with information material on request or if we answer your enquiries. In these cases, we will always point this out to you. Furthermore, we store only the data that you have sent to us either automatically or voluntarily.

If you use one of our services, we generally only collect the data that is necessary for us to be able to provide you with our service. We may ask you for further information, although this is only on a voluntary basis. Whenever we process personal data, we do so in order to be able to provide you with our service or to pursue our commercial objectives.

Automatically stored data

Server log files 

The website provider automatically collects and stores information in so-called "server log files", which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Date and time of the request
  • Name of the requested file
  • Page from which the file was requested
  • Access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
  • Web browser and operating system used
  • Complete IP address of the requesting computer
  • Transferred data volume

This data is not combined with other data sources. Processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 (f) GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website.

This data is temporarily stored by us for reasons of technical security, in particular in order to prevent attempts to attack our web server. It is not possible for us to draw conclusions about specific individuals on the basis of this data. After seven days at the latest, the data is made anonymous by shortening the IP address at the domain level, so that it is no longer possible to establish a reference to the individual user. The data is also processed in anonymous form for statistical purposes; it is not compared with other data stocks or passed on to third parties, even in the form of extracts. Only within the context of our server statistics, which we publish every two years in our activity report, is the number of page views made known.


When you visit our Internet pages, we may store information on your computer in the form of cookies. Cookies are small files that are transferred from an Internet server to your browser and stored on its hard drive. Only the Internet protocol address is saved during this process – but no personal data. This information, which is stored in the cookies, enables us to recognise you automatically the next time you visit our website, thereby making it easier for you to use our website. The legal basis for the use of cookies is the legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

You can of course also visit our Internet pages without accepting cookies. If you do not want your computer to be recognised upon your next visit, you can also refuse the use of cookies by changing the settings in your browser to "Reject cookies". You can find out how to do this in the operating instructions of your browser. However, if you reject the use of cookies, there may be restrictions on the use of some areas of our Internet pages.

Google Tag Manager

This website uses Google Tag Manager. The Tag Manager does not collect any personal data. The tool will trigger other tags that for their part might collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access these data. If a deactivation took place on the domain or cookie level, this deactivation will remain in force for all tracking tags that are implemented by Google Tag Manager. For the Google data protection policy about this tool, please go to: https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/tag-manager/

Google Analytics with Anonymisation Function

On our website, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter "Google“. Google-Analytics uses so-called "cookies“, text files that are saved on your computer allowing for an analysis of your visit to the website.

The information provided by these cookies, such as the time, place and frequency of your visit including your IP address, will be sent to Google in the USA and saved at this location.

On our website, we use Google Analytics with the suffix "_gat._anonymizeIp". In this case, Google will already shorten and thus anonymise your IP address within the member states of the European Union or other signatories of the Agreement on the Economic Area.

Google uses this information to evaluate your visit to our website, to create reports for us about the website activities and to render additional services associated with the use of the website and Internet. Where appropriate, Google will also disclose this information to third parties if legally required or if a third party processes these data on behalf of Google.

Google will never link your IP address with other data from Google on its own account. You can prevent the installation of cookies with the corresponding setting of your browser software; however, we would like to point out that in this case you won't be able to make full use of all the functions on our website.

In addition, Google provides a deactivation add-on for the most common browsers which will give you more control over which data Google will collect from the websites you visit. The add-on tells JavaScript (ga.js) from Google Analytics that no information on the website visit may be sent to Google Analytics. However, the deactivation add-on from Google Analytics for browsers does not prevent information from being sent to us or other web analysis services possibly used by us. Click on the following link to get more information on the installation of the browser add-on: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

If you have agreed to have your web and app browser history linked to your Google account and that information from your Google account can be used to personalise your data, Google will use your data together with Google Analytics data to create target group lists for remarketing purposes across devices. For this purpose, Google Analytics will first collect your Google-authenticated ID on our website which is then linked to your Google account (thus personal data). Google Analytics will then temporarily link your ID to your Google Analytics data in order to optimise our target groups.

If you don't agree with this, you can stop this by making the corresponding settings in the "My account" area of your Google account.

Facebook "Sign In with Facebook"

We use components of the provider facebook.com on our site. Facebook is a service of facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA.

We use the "Facebook Connect" function, which is offered by Facebook.

If you want to use this function, you will first be redirected to Facebook. There you will be asked to log in with your user name and password. Of course, we do not take note of your registration data. If you are already logged in to Facebook, this step will be skipped.

Facebook will then tell you what information is sent to us (public profile, list of friends, email address and current location). Confirm this with the "OK" button. With the transmitted data we create your customer account, whereby your friend list is not stored by us of course. There is no further permanent link between your customer account and your Facebook account.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in the Facebook data protection information.

Facebook Custom Audiences Pixels

To present visitors to our website interest-based ads during their visit of Facebook, we use Custom Audiences Pixel of the Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). To this effect, we have implemented a Facebook Pixel that establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers during the visit of our website. The Facebook server will receive the information that you have visited our website and Facebook will then assign this information to your personal Facebook user account. For more information about the collection and use of data by Facebook as well as your rights in this regard and the setting options for the protection of your privacy, please refer to the data protection policy of Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

Google Web Fonts

Google web fonts (https://fonts.google.com/) are used to improve the visual presentation of various information on our website. The web fonts are transferred to the cache of the browser when the page is called up, so that they can be used for the display. If the browser does not support Google web fonts or prevents access, the text is displayed in a standard font. When the page is called up, no cookies are stored for the website visitor. Data transmitted in connection with the page view is sent to resource-specific domains such as fonts.googleapis.com or fonts.gstatic.com. They are not associated with data that may be collected or used in connection with the parallel use of authenticated Google services such as Gmail.

You can set your browser so that the fonts are not loaded from the Google servers (e.g. by installing add-ons like NoScript or Ghostery for Firefox). If your browser does not support the Google fonts or if you prevent access to the Google servers, the text will be displayed in the default font of the system.

You may request that we restrict the processing of your data if
