  1. What data do we process about you?

We collect a series of general data and information with each call of our website by a data subject or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in so-called log files of the server. The type of browser used and its version, the operating system used by the accessing system, the website from which an accessing system accesses our website, the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website, the Internet service provider of the accessing system as well as certain cookies (see section 4 of our data protection notice) are recorded in this respect. Furthermore, the date and time of an access to our website as well as an Internet protocol address (IP address) are recorded. The general data and information collected by us are needed by us to optimize the content of our website for them, to ensure permanent functionality of our systems and the technology of our website and to provide any information in case of a criminal use of our website. Accordingly, the general data and information collected is evaluated statistically on the one hand, and on the other hand, with the aim of increasing data protection and data security within our company.

The aforementioned information will be stored for a maximum period of 3 months after collection. The storage of this data is for our own protection. In principle, this data is not passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to pass it on or the passing on serves the purpose of criminal prosecution.


  1. Cookies

We use so-called cookies on our website. A cookie is a small file that is stored on your computer when you visit our website. Most cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters by which websites and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows us to distinguish your individual browser from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. Through the use of cookies, we can provide you, the user, with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

Most cookies on our site are so-called session cookies, i.e. they are automatically deleted when you leave our website. Persistent cookies remain on your computer until they are manually deleted in your browser. We use such persistent cookies to recognize you the next time you visit our website.

If you want to control cookies on your computer, you can select your browser settings so that you receive a message when a website wants to save cookies. You can also prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time using an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common Internet browsers.

e) You also have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which has been provided to us by you, in a structured, common and machine-readable format ( 20 DS-GVO). You also have the right to transfer this data to another controller without hindrance from us, provided that the processing is based on consent given pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) DS-GVO or Art. 9(2 )(a) DS-GVO or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6(1)(b ) DS-GVO and the processing is carried out with the aid of automated procedures, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in us as controller.

Furthermore, when exercising your right to data portability pursuant to Article 20(1 ) of the GDPR, you as a data subject have the right to obtain that the personal data be transferred directly from one controller to another controller, to the extent that this is technically feasible and provided that this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other individuals.

If we process personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for such marketing. If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes without culpable hesitation.

  1. Use and application of Google Analytics

We have integrated the Google Analytics component on our website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, compilation and evaluation of data about the behavior of visitors to websites.

The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. Google Analytics sets a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. What cookies are has already been explained above(section 4 of our data protection notice). By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. In this respect, the processing of your data is based on our overriding legitimate interest in creating easy-to-use website access statistics in a cost-efficient manner(Art. 6 (1) lit. f DS-GVO).

The information generated by the cookie about your use of our website (in particular your IP address and the URL of the web pages accessed) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. We do not store any of your data collected in connection with Google Analytics.

Our website uses the IP anonymization option offered by Google Analytics. Your IP address is therefore shortened/anonymized by Google as soon as Google receives the IP address. On our behalf, Google will use the information obtained to evaluate your use of our website in order to compile reports on the use of our websites. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data by Google in accordance with Google's privacy policy.

As the data subject, you can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs. Furthermore, it is possible to object to the collection of data generated by Google Analytics and related to the use of this website as well as to the processing of this data by Google and to prevent such processing. To do this, you can download and install a browser add-on at the link This browser add-on tells Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about website visits may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered by Google as an objection. If your system is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later date, you as the data subject must reinstall the browser add-on in order to deactivate Google Analytics. If the browser add-on has been uninstalled or deactivated by you, it is also possible to reinstall or reactivate the browser add-on.

Further information and the applicable Google privacy policy can be found at .

and can be accessed at . If you have any further questions, Google Analytics is explained in more detail under the link .
