Collection of general information
Information of a general nature is automatically collected when you access our website. This information (in the form of server log files) includes, for example, type of web browser, operating system used, domain name of your Internet service provider etc. This is only information that does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person. This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver website content that you request and is essential for Internet use. We use anonymous information of this kind for statistical purposes in order to optimise our website and the technology behind it.
Like many other websites, we also use what are known as “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. This automatically provides us with certain data about your computer and your connection to the Internet, such as IP address, browser used and operating system.
Cookies cannot be used to launch programs or transfer viruses to a computer. We can use the information contained in cookies to make navigation easier for you and to enable our web pages to be displayed correctly.
Under no circumstances will the data we collect be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.
Provision of paid services
We will ask for additional data, e.g. payment details, in order to provide paid services.
To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) over HTTPS to ensure the security of your data during transmission.
If you contact us by e-mail or contact form, the information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing your inquiry and for possible follow-up questions.
Deleting or blocking data
We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data minimization. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as required by the various storage periods stipulated by law. Once the specific purpose has ceased to exist or these periods have expired, the data in question will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with legal requirements.
Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (hereinafter: Google). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer to help the website analyse how you use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will generally be transferred to one of Google’s servers located in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated for this website, Google, will abridge your IP address within a Member State of the European Union or another state party to the Treaty on the European Economic Area. The full IP address will only be transferred to one of Google’s servers located in the USA and abridged there in exceptional cases. Google will use this information on behalf of the website operator for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services to the website operator relating to website activity and Internet usage. The IP address transferred by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be associated with any other data held by Google.
You may refuse to allow cookies to be stored by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser; however, please note that, if you do this, you may not be able to use all the features of this website to their full extent. Furthermore, you can prevent the data generated by the cookie relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) from being captured and sent to Google, and also prevent Google from processing these data, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: browser add-on for deactivating Google Analytics.
In addition to, or as an alternative to, the browser add-on, you can prevent tracking by Google Analytics on our website by clicking on this link. In this case, an opt-out cookie will be installed on your device. This will prevent Google Analytics from recording data for this website and for this browser in the future as long as the cookie remains installed in your browser.
Use of script libraries (Google Web Fonts)
In order to display our content correctly and in a graphically appealing manner across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google Web Fonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/) on this website. Google Web Fonts are transferred to your browser’s cache to avoid multiple loading. Content will be displayed in a default font if your browser does not support Google Web Fonts or denies access to them.
Calling script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library operator. It is theoretically possible – although it is currently unclear whether and for what purposes – that operators of such libraries collect data.
Use of Google Maps

Embedded YouTube videos
We embed YouTube videos on some of our web pages. Operator of the plug-ins in question is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plug-in, a connection to YouTube servers will be established. This informs YouTube of the pages you visit. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube will be able to assign your surfing behaviour to you personally. You can prevent this by first logging out of your YouTube account.
If you have disabled cookies for the Google Ad program, you will not have to worry about these cookies when you watch YouTube videos, but YouTube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. You must block the storage of cookies in your browser if you wish to prevent this.
We have integrated the social media buttons of the following companies on our website:
Facebook Inc. (1601 S. California Ave – Palo Alto – CA 94304 – USA)
Twitter Inc. (1355 St., Suite 600 – San Francisco – CA 94107 – USA)
Google Plus/Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway – Mountain View – CA 94043 – USA)
Your rights to information, rectification, blocking, erasure and objection
You have the right to receive information about the personal data we store about you at any time. You also have the right to have your personal data rectified, blocked or, apart from prescribed data storage for business purposes, erased. Please contact our data protection officer for this purpose. You will find the contact details below.
To ensure that data blocking can be handled at any time, the data must be stored in a blocking file for monitoring purposes. You can also require the erasure of the data as long as there is no legal obligation to archive them. Where such an obligation exists, we will block your data upon request.
You can effect changes or revoke your consent by notifying us accordingly with effect for the future.
