Data protection

The operators of these web pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and according to data protection legislation as well as per this privacy policy. As a rule, the use of our website is possible without the need to provide personal data. Whenever personal data (for example, name, address or email address) are collected on our pages, this is always done, wherever possible, on a voluntary basis. We will not pass this data on to third-parties without your express consent. We must point out that there can be security issues when data is transferred via the Internet (e.g. when communicating by email). Fully protecting data against unauthorised access by third-parties is impossible.


These internet pages partially use cookies. Cookies do not cause damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. The purpose of cookies is to make our site more user friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that your browser saves on your computer. Most of the cookies we use are known as "session-cookies". They are automatically deleted after the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to identify your browser on your
next visit. You can adjust your browser settings so that you are notified about the placement of cookies and are able to only allow cookies in individual cases, accept cookies in certain cases or generally block cookies, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when you close the browser. When cookies are disabled, certain features of our website may not function correctly.


The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in what are known as server log files, which your browser automatically sends to us. These are:
" Browser type / browser version
" The operating system used
" The referrer URL
" Host name of the accessing computer
" Date and time of the server request.
This data cannot be attributed to individual people. This data is not merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to review this data, if concrete evidence of illegal use becomes known to us.

IP Anonymization

We use the function "Activation of IP Anonymization" on this website. This means, your IP address will be abbreviated by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other countries that have signed the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google uses this information on behalf of the operator to evaluate how you use the website in order to compile reports on website activity to provide the website operator with website and internet-related services. The IP address transmitted from your browser within the framework of Google Analytics will not be collated with other data from Google.

Demographics used in Google Analytics

This website uses the "Demographics feature" of Google Analytics. As a result, reports can be produced that contain statements on the age, gender and interests of the site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and third-party visitor data. This data cannot, however, be attributed to a specific person. You can disable this feature at any time through the ad settings in your Google Account, or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as outlined in the section "Objection to Data Collection".
