The protection of your personal data is very important to us. We therefore process your data exclusively on the basis of the statutory provisions (GDPR, TKG 2003). In this data protection information, we inform you about the most important aspects of data processing on our website.



If you contact us using the form on the website or by e-mail, the data you provide will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the request and in case of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.



We (or our web space provider) collect data about every access to the website (so-called server log files). The access data include:

Website accessed, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, status reports, browser type, operating system and IP address.

We only use the log data for operational and security purposes. However, we reserve the right to check the log data retrospectively if, based on specific indications, there is a justified suspicion of illegal use.



Our website uses so-called cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your device with the help of the browser. They do no harm. We use cookies to make our offer user-friendly. Some cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. They enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit.

If you do not want this, you can set up your browser so that it informs you about the setting of cookies and you only allow this in individual cases. Deactivating cookies may restrict the functionality of our website.

Like most websites, we also collect certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol addresses (IP addresses), browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring / ending pages, operating system, date / time stamps, amount of data transferred, http status and clickstream data.

In addition, we use so-called “pixel tags” (tiny image files) that provide information about which areas of our website customers have visited or measure how effective customer searches on our website were.



It may happen that third party content, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites, are integrated into this online offer. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) perceive the IP address of the user. Because without the IP address, you would not be able to send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required to display this content. We strive to only use content whose respective providers only use the IP address to deliver the content. However, we have no control over whether the third-party provider saves the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. As far as we know, we will inform users about it.




This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”), 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses cookies, which enable an analysis of the use of the website by the user.

The data generated by the cookie about the use of this website (including the user's IP address) are transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. There is an adequacy decision by the European Commission for the transfer of personal data to the U.S.A.

Google will use the transmitted data on behalf of the operator to evaluate the use of the website by the user, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage.

Google may also transfer this data to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google.

IP anonymization is activated by default on this website. If IP anonymization is activated, Google's IP address will be shortened beforehand within the European Union or in the European Economic Area. The full IP address will only be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases.

The user can prevent the storage of cookies as part of Google Analytics by setting their browser software accordingly. In this case, however, the user may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. The user can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to the use of the website (including the IP address) and from processing this data by Google by plugging the browser available under the following link.
