Collection of general information

When you visit our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected. This information (server log files) contains the type of web browser used, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider, etc. This only concerns information which does not permit conclusions to be made about your person. This information is a technological requirement to ensure the correct delivery of the requested website content and is automatically generated when you use the Internet. Information of this type is only collected in an anonymised form and statistically evaluated by us in order to improve our website and the technology behind it.

Registration on our website

Upon registering to use our personalised services, some personal data will be collected, for example, your name, address, and contact and communication information such as telephone number and email address. If you have registered with us, you can access contents and services that we only offer to registered users. Registered users are also able to change or delete data provided during registration at any time. Of course, we shall also be happy to provide you information about any personal data we have stored about you at any time. In addition, we shall correct or erase personal data at your request insofar as there are no statutory storage obligations. To contact us in this regard, please use the contact details provided at the end of this Privacy Policy.

Provision of paid services

In order to provide paid services, we request additional data, for example, payment details.

SSL encryption

To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.


When registering to receive our newsletter, the data you provide will be used exclusively for this purpose. Subscribers may also be notified by email of circumstances relevant to the service or registration (e.g. changes to the newsletter offer or technical circumstances).

For an effective registration we need a valid email address. In order to verify that a registration is actually made by the owner of an email address, we use the ‘double-opt-in’ procedure. For this purpose, we log the order of the newsletter, the sending of a confirmation email and the receipt of the requested answer. Further data will not be collected. The data will be used exclusively for sending the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.

You can revoke your consent to the storage of your personal data and their use for sending email newsletters at any time. You will find an unsubscribe link in each newsletter. You can also unsubscribe directly from this website at any time or let us know your wishes by using the contact options at the end of this document.

Contact form

If you contact us by email or contact form, the information you have provided will be stored for the purpose of processing your inquiry and for possible follow-up questions.

Deletion and erasure of data

We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We will therefore only save your personal data for as long as necessary to achieve the purposes stated herein or than is required by the different legally specified retention periods. After the respective purposes no longer apply or after expiry of these retention periods, the corresponding data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the legal provisions.

Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google (Universal) Analytics, a web service provided by Google Inc. ( Google Analytics uses so-called ‘cookies’, text files which are stored on your computer in order to facilitate an analysis of the use of the site. The information generated about your use of this website is normally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymisation on these websites, your IP address will previously be reduced by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional circumstances will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and Internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: Browser add-on to disable Google Analytics.

In addition or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can prevent tracking by Google Analytics on our websites by clicking on this link . An opt-out cookie will be installed on your device. This will prevent Google Analytics from collecting data for this website and for this browser in future as long as the cookie remains installed in your browser.

Use of Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps API to visually represent geographic information. When using Google Maps, Google will collect, process and use data about use of the map functions by users.

Embedded YouTube videos

We use embedded YouTube videos on some of our websites. The operator of these plug-ins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a site with the YouTube plug-in, it will connect to Youtube's servers. YouTube will be informed about the sites you visit. If you are logged into your YouTube Account, YouTube can assign your surfing-behaviour to your personal account. You can prevent this from happening by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.

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

Anyone who has disabled the storage of cookies for the Google Ad programme 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 saving of cookies in your browser.

Further information on data privacy at ‘YouTube’ can be found in the provider's privacy policy available at:

Social plug-ins

We offer you the possibility of using so-called ‘social media buttons’ on our website. To protect your data, we rely on the ‘Shariff’ implementation solution. This means that these buttons are only included on the website as a graphic containing a link to the corresponding website of the button provider. By clicking on the graphic, you will be forwarded to the services of the respective provider. Only then will your data be sent to the respective providers. If you do not click on the graphic, there is no exchange between you and the providers of the social media buttons. Information about the collection and use of your data in the social networks can be found in the respective terms of use of the respective providers. More information about the Shariff solution can be found here:

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)
