Data Privacy

The oper­a­tors of these pages take the pro­tec­tion of per­son­al data very seri­ous­ly. We keep your per­son­al data con­fi­den­tial and obey data pro­tec­tion reg­u­la­tions and this data pri­va­cy state­ment. Using these web pages is nor­mal­ly pos­si­ble with­out sup­ply­ing any per­son­al data. If our pages col­lect per­son­al data (like name, address, or email address), sup­ply­ing per­son­al data is vol­un­tary. This data is not pro­vid­ed to third par­ties with­out your per­mis­sion. Please note that data trans­mis­sion through the inter­net (e.g. com­mu­ni­ca­tion via email) may have secu­ri­ty loop­holes. A guar­an­teed pro­tec­tion of data access by a third par­ty is not possible.


These pages part­ly use cook­ies. Cook­ies do not dam­age your com­put­er and do not con­tain virus­es. Cook­ies are used to make our pages more user-friend­ly, effec­tive, and safer. Cook­ies are small text files that are stored by your brows­er on your com­put­er. Most of the cook­ies we use are so-called ses­sion-cook­ies. They are auto­mat­i­cal­ly delet­ed after you use our pages. Oth­er cook­ies remain on your device until you delete them. These cook­ies allow us to rec­og­nize your brows­er if you vis­it our pages again. You can set up your brows­er so that you are informed when cook­ies are set. You can allow set­ting cook­ies indi­vid­u­al­ly, accept cook­ies for cer­tain use cas­es, or gen­er­al­ly pro­hib­it them. You can also enable the fea­ture to auto­mat­i­cal­ly delete all cook­ies after you close your brows­er. If you deac­ti­vate cook­ies, the func­tion­al­i­ty of these pages might be limited.


Server Log Files

The oper­a­tors of these pages auto­mat­i­cal­ly gath­er and store infor­ma­tion that your brows­er sends to us in serv­er log files. These are:

  • brows­er type and brows­er version
  • oper­at­ing system
  • refer­rer URL
  • host name of the con­nect­ing device
  • time of the con­nec­tion to the server

These data can­not be assigned to spe­cif­ic per­sons. These data are not con­nect­ed with data from oth­er sources. If we become aware of any ille­gal usage of our pages, we might sub­se­quent­ly check this data.

Contact Form

If you con­tact us using the con­tact form, we will save the data you input into the con­tact form. We do so to process your inquiry and in case of fol­low-up ques­tions. This data is not passed on to third par­ties with­out your permission.

SSL Encryption

These pages use SSL encryp­tion for safe­ty pur­pos­es and to pro­tect the trans­mis­sion of con­fi­den­tial data, such as when you send us inquiries. You will rec­og­nize the encrypt­ed con­nec­tion when the address line of your brows­er shows “https://” instead of “http://” and through the lock sym­bol. If the SSL encryp­tion is enabled, the data you trans­mit to us can­not be read by a third party.

Objection to Advertisement Emails

We object to send­ing adver­tise­ments or infor­ma­tion to the con­tact infor­ma­tion sup­plied in the legal notice. We reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unso­licit­ed send­ing of adver­tise­ments, for exam­ple through spam emails.
