What are personal data and what we use them for

Personal data is any information about your person that enables an identification, e. g. surname, first name, address or e-mail address. You do not have to disclose personal data to use our websites. If personal data is collected (e. g. surname, postal address or e-mail address in the contact form) this is done always on a voluntary basis whenever possible. We only store data that you transmitted automatically or voluntarily. These data will not be transferred to third parties without your express permission.

How are personal data processed?

At several locations on our website we offer you the opportunity to contact us or to use certain services. Any personal data transmitted by this reason will only be stored for the purpose for which it was transferred such as handling your inquiry or in order to respond to possible questions.

Which personal data are requested?

If the website offers the possibility to enter personal or business data (e-mail addresses, surnames, postal addresses), the input of these data is made on the part of the user on particularly voluntary basis. The use of all offered services is, as far as technically feasible and reasonable, also permitted without specification of such data or under specification of anonymised data or by using an alias. However, correct specification of optional data enables us to serve you on an individual basis.

SSL encryption

We use an encryption process in line with state of the art technology via HTTPS (SSL) in order to protect your data during transmission.

Contact Form

When you send us enquiries using the contact form, your data from the contact form, including the contact information you provide, will be stored by us to process your inquiry as well as any follow-up enquiries. We will not disclose this information without your permission to any third parties.

Is the confidentiality of e-mail correspondence / contact form ensured?

If you wish to contact us via your own e-mail account, we would like to point out that the confidentiality of the transmitted information possibly cannot be ensured.


If the data are collected and processed via our contact form, the data will be encrypted before being transferred. Confidential information can be exclusively sent to us by post.

Are data logged while visiting the website?

The provider of these pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • IP address
  • Page, from which the file was requested
  • Date, time
  • Browser type and browser settings
  • Operating system
  • The page you have visited
  • Data volume transmitted
  • Access status (file transmitted, file not found etc.)

These data cannot be linked to specific persons. No consolidation of these data with other data sources is performed. We reserve the right to subsequently inspect these data should specific evidence of unlawful use become apparent to us.

Are cookies used?

When you visit our website, we may store information on your computer in the form of cookies. Cookies are small data files which are transmitted from an internet server to your browser and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Only the internet protocol address is stored here – no personal data. The legal basis for the use of cookies is Sec. 6 Para. 1 lit f GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).

Most of the cookies we use are so-called session cookies. Session cookies are deleted automatically when you finish your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal until you delete them or they expire. This gives you the advantage while filling in forms you do not have to spend time entering your details each time. Furthermore these cookies allow us to recognise your computer on your next visit.

Most browsers are configured in such a way that they accept cookies automatically. You can, however, deactivate the storage of cookies or adjust your browser so that you will be informed whenever cookies are sent.


If you should have deactivated all cookies in your browser, a so-called session ID serves towards identifying your person during continuous access to our website. Here, too, no data will be stored on your computer. The session ID is deleted again after your access has ended.

Matomo (Piwik)

The use of the web analysis tool Matomo

This website uses Matomo, an open source software that collects and stores data. This information serves for marketing and optimisation purposes. Matomo uses these data to create user profiles with an alias. For these purposes the software stores cookies (text files) on your computer and enables the analysis of your use of the website. Immediately after processing and before storage your IP address is anonymised. The data are stored on the provider’s servers in Germany.


If you do not want Matomo to store cookies you have the possibility to prohibit the installation of cookies by adjusting your browser (for further information refer to the help function of your browser). In this case you may not be able to use all functions of the service.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytic service of the Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so called "cookies", which are text files that are stored on your computer and which enable the analytics of your website use. The information created by the cookies are normally transmitted and stored to a server located in the USA.


In case of activation of IP anonymisation on this website, means though that your IP address from Google is shortened inside of member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the IP address is transmitted to a server in the USA and is shortened there. On behalf of the website owner, Google uses the information to analyse your use of this website, to generate reports on your website activities and to provide further services regarding the website and internet usage to the website owner.


The IP address transmitted by your browser in regards to Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. You can prevent the storage of cookies in your browser settings; however, we would point out that in this case, you may not use the complete website functionality. Furthermore, you can prevent Google from collecting and processing data with cookies (including your IP address) by installation of the following browser plugin https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout


This website uses Google Analytics with the extension „_anonymizeIp()“. Therefore only shortened IP addresses are processed to exclude direct reference to persons.

Google Tag Manager

This website uses Google Tag Manager. Through this service website tags can be managed by using an interface. The Google Tool Manager only implements tags. That means: no cookies are used and no personal data are recorded. The Google Tool Manager releases other tags which in turn collect data if applicable. The Google Tag Manager though does not access these data. If deactivation was made on domain or cookie-level it remains for all tracking tags insofar they are implemented with Google Tag Manager.

YouTube

This website uses the function of embedded videos on YouTube. When a website with embedded videos is called up, your IP address is normally already sent to YouTube and cookies are saved on your computer. With our YouTube videos, we have activated the additional data protection mode. This means that in accordance with the data protection declaration from Google, personal data will not be analysed, unless you watch the video. In this case your IP address will be transmitted to YouTube. If you are also logged in to YouTube, this information will also be assigned to your user account.

We have taken technical and administrative safety precautions to protect your personal data against loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorised access.
