Privacy Policy

Data protection

The operators of this site take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We handle your personal data confidentially and according to the legal data protection regulations, as well as this privacy statement.
The use of our website is usually possible without providing any personal data. If personal data is collected on our site (for example, name, address or email addresses), this always happens, where possible, on a voluntary basis. This data is not given to third parties without your express permission.

We point out that data transmission on the internet (e.g. when communicating by email) can present security gaps. Completely perfect data protection against third-party access is not possible.


The web pages partially use so-called cookies. Cookies cause no damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies are used to make our offer more user friendly, more effective and more secure. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your computer and which your browser saves.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. These are automatically deleted after the end of your session. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser again on your next visit.

You can set up your browser so that you are informed of cookies being used and only allow cookies in individual cases, accept cookies for specific situations or generally exclude them as well as automatically deleting the cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website can be restricted


The page provider automatically gathers and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically sends to us. These are:

  • Browser type/ Browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request.

This data cannot be applied to specific persons. A merger of this data with other data sources will not be carried out.

Contact form

If you send us requests via the contact form, we will save your details from the request form, including the contact details you provide there, for the purpose of processing the request and in case of follow-up questions. We will not pass this data on without your permission.

Newsletter data

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need an email address from you as well as information which allows us to check that you are the owner of the email address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. Additional data is not stored. We use this data exclusively to send the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.

You can revoke the consent given to store the data, the email addresses, as well as the use of this to send the newsletter at any time, by using the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. Furthermore, we refer to the information below about “information, deletion and blocking”.

Privacy policy for the use of Google Analytics

In accordance with number 8.1 of the conditions for use from Google Analytics, the following is indicated:
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis device from Google Inc (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files, which are stored on your computer to enable the analysis of your use of the website. The information about your use of this website (including your IP address) collected by the cookie is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports about the website activities for the site operator and subsequently to provide services in connection with website use and internet use. Google will also possibly transfer this information to third parties if this is legally required or if third parties are processing this information on behalf of Google. Google will not under any circumstances associate your IP address with other Google data. You can prevent the installation of these cookies using an appropriate setting in your browser software; but we inform you that in this case you might not be able to use all of the functions of this website completely. By using this website, you agree to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner described above and for the aforementioned purpose.
In addition, we point out that the data collection and storage can be rejected at any time with effect for the future. Given the debate about the use of analytical tools with full IP addresses, it is made clear that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp ()” and therefore IP addresses are processed only in a shortened form to exclude direct personal references.

Privacy policy for the use of Pinterest – Pin it- buttons

On our site we use social plugins from the social network Pinterest, which is operated by the Pinterest Inc situated in 808 Brannan St, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.

This log data possibly contains your IP address, the addresses of the websites visited that also contain Pinterest functions, browser type and settings, date and time of the request, your manner of using Pinterest as well as cookies.

Additional information about the purpose, extent, and further processing and use of the data by Pinterest as well as your rights relating to this and opportunities to protect your private sphere can be found in Pinterest’s privacy policy:
