The protection of your personal data during the collection, processing and use during your visit to our homepage is very important to us. Your data is protected in accordance with legal regulations. Below you will find information about which data is collected during your visit to the homepage and how it is used:

Collecting general information

When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically recorded. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and the like. This is only information that does not allow conclusions about your person. This information is technically necessary to correctly deliver the contents of web pages requested by you and is mandatory when using the internet. Anonymous information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us, in order to optimize our Internet appearance and the technology behind it.


Like many other websites, we also use so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. This automatically gives us certain data, such as IP address, browser used, operating system from your computer and your connection to the Internet.

Cookies cannot be used to launch programs or to transfer viruses to a computer. Based on the information contained in cookies, we can facilitate navigation and enable the correct display of our websites.

The data collected by us will in no case be passed on to third parties or linked with personal data without your consent.

Of course, you can also visit our website without cookies. Internet browsers are regularly set to accept cookies. You can disable cookies at any time using the settings menu of your browser. Please note that some features of our website may not work if you don’t accept the use of cookies.

Registration on our website

When registering for the use of our personalized services, some personal information will be collected, such as name, address, contact and communication information, such as telephone number and e-mail address. If you do the registration, you can access content and services that we offer only to registered users. Registered users also have the option of changing or deleting the data specified during registration at any time. As a matter of course, we inform you about the personal data stored about you. We are happy to rectify or delete these upon your request, insofar as not opposed by any statutory requirement to preserve records. To contact us on this matter, please use the contact details given at the end of this Privacy Policy.

SSL encryption

To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption techniques (such as SSL) over HTTPS.


If you subscribe to our newsletter, the data you provide will be used exclusively for this purpose. Subscribers may also be informed by email about different matters regarding the newsletter service or registration (such as changes in the newsletter or technical conditions).

For a successful registration a valid e-mail address is needed. In order to verify that an application is actually made by the owner of an e-mail address, we use the "Double opt-in" procedure. For this purpose we record the order of the newsletter, the dispatch of a confirmation mail and the receipt of the requested answer. Further data won’t be collected. The data is collected only for the purpose of the subscription to our newsletter and will not be disclosed to third parties.

The consent to the storage of your personal data and their use for the newsletter can be withdrawed at any time. A link to the unsubscription is included in each newsletter. In addition, you can unsubscribe from this website at any time or inform us via the contact option indicated at the end of this Privacy Notice.

Contact form

If you contact us by e-mail or by using the contact form, the information you provide will be stored only for the purpose of processing the request and for possible follow-up questions.

Deletion or blocking of data

We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. Therefore, we only store your personal data for as long as it is necessary to achieve the purposes mentioned here or as required for the various storage periods provided by law. After discontinuation of the respective purpose or expiration of these deadlines, the corresponding data will be routinely and in accordance with the statutory provisions blocked or deleted.

Using Script Libraries (Google Webfonts)

In order to render our content correctly and graphically appealing across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries on this website, such as:

Google Webfonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/). Google web fonts are transferred to the cache of your browser to prevent multiple loading. If the browser does not support Google Web fonts or prohibits access, content will be displayed in a standard font.

The call of script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the operator of the library. It is theoretically possible - but currently also unclear whether and if so for what purposes - that operators of such libraries collect data.

The privacy policy of the library operator Google can be found here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

Using Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps API to visually display geographic information. When using Google Maps, Google also collects, processes and uses data about the use of map features by visitors. For more information about Google's data processing, please refer to the Google Privacy Notice. You can change your personal privacy settings in the privacy center there.

Embedded YouTube videos

On some of our websites we embed Youtube videos. The corresponding plug-ins are operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plug-in, it will connect to Youtube's servers. Youtube will be informed which pages you visit. If you are logged into your Youtube account, Youtube can assign your surfing behavior to you personally. This can be prevented by logging out of your Youtube account beforehand.

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

Anyone who has disabled the storage of cookies for the Google Ad program will not have to expect such cookies when watching YouTube videos. 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.

For more information on data protection at "Youtube", see the privacy policy of the provider at: https://www.google.de/intl/en/policies/privacy/

Social plugins

Our websites use social plugins of the providers listed below. The plugins can be recognized by the fact that they are marked with the appropriate logo.

These plug-ins may be used to send information, which may include personal information, to the service provider and may be used by the service provider. We prevent the unconscious and unwanted collection and transmission of data to the service provider through a 2-click solution. To activate a desired social plugin, it must first be activated by clicking on the corresponding button. Only through this activation of the plugin is the detection of information and its transmission to the service provider triggered. We do not collect personally identifiable information by means of social plugins or their use.

We have no control over which data an enabled plugin collects and how it is used by the provider. At present, it must be assumed that a direct connection to the services of the provider will be expanded and at least the IP address and device-related information will be collected and used. It is also possible that the service providers try to save cookies on the computer used. Please refer to the privacy policy of the respective service provider to see which specific data is collected here and how it is used. Note: If you are logged in to Facebook at the same time, Facebook may identify you as a visitor to a particular page.

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. (795 Folsom St. - Suite 600 - San Francisco - CA 94107 - USA)

It is your right to receive information about your personal data stored by us at any time. Likewise, you have the right to the correction, blocking or, apart from the prescribed data storage for business transactions, deletion of your personal data. Please contact our data protection officer. The contact details can be found at the bottom.

For a data lock to be taken into account at all times, these data must be stored in a lock file for control purposes. You can also request the deletion of the data, as long as there is no legal archiving obligation. As far as such an obligation exists, we lock your data on request.

You can make changes or withdraw your consent with future effect by contacting us.

Change of our privacy policy

We reserve the right to make changes in this Privacy Policy from time to time to ensure that it complies with current legal requirements or to implement changes in our services in the Privacy Policy, such as the introduction of new services. For your next visit, this new Privacy Policy will then apply.
