Privacy policy

The operator of this website takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and handle it according to the statutory data-protection regulations as well as this data privacy statement.

In general, the use of this website is possible without disclosure of personal data. If we collect personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail address), this is always on a voluntary basis, wherever possible. None of this data will be forwarded to any third parties without your express consent.

We draw your attention to the fact that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) may have security vulnerabilities. A complete protection of data from access by third parties is not possible.


Some of the pages use cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies help to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files stored on your computer which are saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are what we call “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of each browser session. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser when you visit our website again.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, so you can either decide to accept cookies in particular cases or generally exclude them completely and activate the automatic deletion of cookies once you close the browser. The exclusion of cookies may restrict the functionality of our website.

Server logfiles

You can visit our website without having to disclose any personal information. We only store your access data in what are called server logfiles, i.e. data such as name of the requested file, date and time of access, volume of data transmitted and data identifying the browser software. This data is requested solely to ensure trouble-free operation of the website and is analysed to further improve our service. It cannot be traced back to any specific person. The provider of this website automatically collects and saves information in what are called server logfiles, which your browser transmits to us automatically. This includes:

  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL (previously visited page)
  • Host name of accessing computer (IP address)

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses cookies, i.e. text files stored on your computer, to enable analysis of your website use. Information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there.

IP anonymisation

We have activated IP anonymisation on this website. This means that your IP address is truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states which are party to the agreement on the European Economic Area before their transmission into the United States. Only in exceptional cases is a full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the United States and truncated there. On behalf of this website's owner, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports about website activities, and provide the website's operator with further services related to website and Internet use. The IP address sent from your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other data by Google.

Demographic characteristics in Google Analytics

This website uses the demographics feature of Google Analytics. As a result, reports can be produced containing data such as age, gender and interests of the website visitors. This data originates from interest-based advertising from Google and third-party visitor data. This data cannot be assigned to a particular person. You can deactivate this function at any time in the advert settings of your Google account or by generally prohibiting the compilation of your data by Google Analytics, as is described under the heading “Objection to data compilation“.

SSL encryption

This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content such as the requests you send to us as site operators. You can identify an encrypted connection by the fact that the browser's address bar changes from "http://" to "https://" as well as by the appearance of the lock icon in your browser address bar.

If SSL encryption is enabled, no data you transmit to us can be read by third parties.

The right to information, cancellation or blocking

At any time you have the right to request free information about your stored personal data, their origin, their recipient and the purpose of the data collection as well as the right to correct, block or delete this data.
