Purposes of Data Processing by the Responsible Authority and Third Parties

We process your personal data only for the purposes stated in this privacy policy. Your personal data will not be transmitted to third parties for purposes other than those mentioned. We will only share your personal data with third parties if:

  • You have given your explicit consent,
  • Processing is required to process a contract with you,
  • Processing is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation,

Like many other websites, we also use “cookies.” Cookies are small text files transferred from a website server to your hard drive. This automatically provides us with certain data such as IP address, browser used, operating system, and your connection to the internet.

Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Based on the information contained in cookies, we can facilitate navigation and enable the correct display of our web pages.

In no case will the data we collect be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.

Of course, you can also view our website without cookies. Internet browsers are regularly set to accept cookies. Generally, you can disable the use of cookies at any time via the settings of your browser. Please use the help functions of your internet browser to learn how to change these settings. Please note that some features of our website may not work if you have disabled the use of cookies.

When registering to use our personalized services, some personal data is collected, such as name, address, contact, and communication data like phone number and email address. If you are registered with us, you can access content and services that we only offer to registered users. Registered users also have the option of changing or deleting the data provided during registration at any time.

SSL Encryption

To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g., SSL) over HTTPS.

Comment Function

When users leave comments on our website, besides these details, the time of their creation and the previously chosen user name of the website visitor are saved. This is for our security as we can be held liable for illegal content on our website, even if created by users.


Based on your explicit consent, we will regularly send you our newsletter or similar information by email to your specified email address.

For receiving the newsletter, providing your email address is sufficient. When subscribing to our newsletter, the data you provide will be used exclusively for this purpose. Subscribers may also be informed via email about circumstances relevant to the service or registration (e.g., changes in the newsletter offer or technical conditions).

For an effective registration, we need a valid email address. To verify that a subscription is genuinely made by the owner of an email address, we use the “double-opt-in” procedure. For this purpose, we log the order of the newsletter, the sending of a confirmation email, and the receipt of the requested response. No additional data is collected.

The data will be used exclusively for sending the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.

You can withdraw your consent to the storage of your personal data and its use for sending the newsletter at any time. Each newsletter contains a corresponding link. Moreover, you can also unsubscribe directly on this website at any time or inform us of your request via the contact details provided at the end of this privacy notice.

Contact Form

If you contact us by email or contact form regarding any questions, you give us your voluntary consent for the purpose of contacting you. This requires the provision of a valid email address. This serves the assignment of the request and the subsequent response to the same. The provision of further data is optional.

The information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing the request and for possible follow-up questions. After your request is completed, personal data will automatically be deleted.

Tracking Tools and Analytics Services

Tracking tools and analytics services are disabled on our website.

Use of Adobe Analytics (Omniture)

This website uses Adobe Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Adobe Systems Software Ireland Limited (“Adobe”). Adobe Analytics uses cookies, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. If a tracking record is transmitted from a visitor’s browser to the Adobe data centers, the server settings we have made ensure that the IP address is anonymized before geolocation, i.e., the last octet of the IP address is replaced by zeros. Before storing the tracking package, the IP address is replaced with generic IP addresses.

On behalf of the operator of this website, Adobe will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activity, and provide other services related to website and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Adobe Analytics is not merged with other Adobe data.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting your browser software accordingly. However, please note that in this case, you may not be able to fully use all the functions of this website. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Adobe and the processing of this data by Adobe by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link:

Use of Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps API to visually display geographical information. When using Google Maps, Google also collects, processes, and uses data about the use of the map functions by visitors. More information about data processing by Google can be found in Google’s privacy notices. There you can also change your personal privacy settings in the privacy center.

Detailed instructions on managing your own data related to Google products can be found here.

Embedded YouTube Videos

We embed YouTube videos on some of our web pages. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection to YouTube servers is established. YouTube is informed about which pages you visit. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can assign your surfing behavior to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.

When a YouTube video is started, the provider uses cookies that collect information about user behavior.

If you have disabled the storage of cookies for the Google Ad program, you will not have to deal with such cookies when viewing YouTube videos. However, YouTube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in the browser.

Further information on data protection at “YouTube” can be found in the provider’s privacy policy at:

Google AdWords

Google Conversion Tracking

Our website uses Google conversion tracking. If you have reached our website via an ad placed by Google, Google AdWords sets a cookie on your computer. The cookie for conversion tracking is set when a user clicks on an ad placed by Google. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie.

Cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers find out the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that can personally identify users.

If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can refuse the necessary setting of a cookie – for example, by setting your browser to generally deactivate the automatic setting of cookies or setting your browser so that cookies from the domain “” are blocked.

Please note that you should not delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not want measurement data to be recorded. If you have deleted all your cookies in the browser, you must set the respective opt-out cookie again.

Changes to Our Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to adapt this privacy policy so that it always complies with current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the privacy policy, e.g., when introducing new services. Your next visit will be subject to the new privacy policy.
