We are pleased that you are visiting our website. In the following we would like to inform you about the handling of your data in accordance with Article 13 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The office named in the imprint is responsible for the data processing described below.
When you visit our website, so-called usage data is temporarily evaluated on our web server as a log for statistical purposes in order to improve the quality of our website. This record consists of
- the name and address of the requested content,
- the date and time of the query,
- the amount of data transferred,
- the access status (content transferred, content not found),
- the description of the web browser used and the operating system,
- the referral link, which indicates from which page you came to ours,
- the IP address of the requesting computer, which is shortened in such a way that a personal reference can no longer be established.
The log data mentioned is only evaluated anonymously.
Storage of the IP address
In addition, we store the full IP address transmitted by your web browser for a strictly earmarked period of seven days in the interest of being able to detect, limit and eliminate attacks on our websites. After this period of time, we delete or anonymize the IP address. The legal basis is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Clause 1 Letter f GDPR.
In order to protect your data from unwanted access as comprehensively as possible, we take technical and organizational measures. We use an encryption process on our websites. Your details are transmitted from your computer to our server and vice versa via the Internet using TLS encryption. You can usually recognize this by the closed lock symbol in the status bar of your browser and the address line beginning with https://.
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your terminal device and can be read. A distinction is made between session cookies, which are deleted as soon as you close your browser, and permanent cookies, which are stored beyond the individual session.
We do not use these necessary cookies for analysis, tracking or advertising purposes.
In some cases, these cookies only contain information about certain settings and are not personally identifiable. They may also be necessary to enable user guidance, security and implementation of the site.
You can also delete cookies at any time via the corresponding browser setting and prevent the setting of new cookies. Please note that our web pages may then not be displayed and some functions may no longer be technically available.

We use the web analysis tool “Google Analytics” to design our websites in line with requirements. Google Analytics creates usage profiles based on pseudonyms. For this purpose, permanent cookies are stored on your end device for a period of one or two years and read by us. In this way, we are able to recognise returning visitors and count them as such.
Within the scope of Google Analytics, we are supported by Google Ireland Limited and Google LLC. (USA) as processors according to Art. 28 DSGVO. The data processing may therefore also take place outside the EU or the EEA. In the context of Google Analytics, we are supported by Google Ireland Limited and Google LLC. (USA) as processors according to Art. 28 DSGVO. The data processing may therefore also take place outside the EU or the EEA. With regard to Google, an adequate level of data protection is ensured due to the adequacy decision (EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework). Google also undertakes to conclude standard contractual clauses with further sub-processors.
Data processing will be based on your consent if you have given your consent via our banner.

Google Tag Manager
For reasons of transparency, we would like to point out that we use the Google Tag Manager. The Google Tag Manager is a tool that allows us to embed tracking or statistical tools and other technologies on our website. The Google Tag Manager itself does not create user profiles, does not store cookies and does not perform any independent analyses. It is only used to manage and play out the tools integrated via it. If a deactivation has been made at domain or cookie level, this remains in place for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager. For more information on Google Tag Manager, see https://www.google.com/intl/de/tagmanager/use-policy.html.
On our websites, we embed YouTube videos that are not stored on our servers. To ensure that accessing our website does not automatically lead to content from the third-party provider being reloaded, we only display these videos if you have given your consent to this via the respective preview image or the cookie settings.
The embedding is based on your consent, provided that you have given your consent via the preview image or the cookie settings. Please note that the embedding of many videos leads to your data being processed outside the EU or EEA. For transfers to the U.S., an adequate level of data protection is ensured due to the certification of the provider under the adequacy decision (EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework).
