Below we inform you about the collection of personal data when using our website.
The term “personal data” refers to all data that can be related to you personally. This includes, for example, your name, address, e-mail addresses and user behavior. With regard to the other terms, in particular the terms “processing” and “consent”, we refer to the statutory definitions under data protection law.
We only process personal data to the extent necessary to provide a functional website and the content and services we offer. Personal data is only processed regularly if you have given us your consent or if the processing is permitted by law. Your personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. Data may also be stored if this is provided for by national or European regulations to which we are subject. In this case, the data will be blocked or deleted when the storage period prescribed by the respective regulations has expired. The latter does not apply if further storage of the data is necessary for the conclusion or fulfillment of a contract.
If we use contracted service providers for individual functions of our website or would like to use your data for advertising purposes, we will inform you in detail below about the respective processes.

Our legitimate interest in data processing lies in the aforementioned purposes.

This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as the requests you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL encryption is activated, the data you send to us cannot be read by third parties.
Integration of third-party services and content
Within our online offer, on the basis of our legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR. GDPR, we use content or service offers from third-party providers to integrate their content and services, such as videos or fonts (hereinafter uniformly referred to as “content”). This always presupposes that the third-party providers of this content are aware of the IP address of the user, as they would not be able to send the content to their browser without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required to display this content. We endeavor to only use content whose respective providers only use the IP address to deliver the content. Third-party providers may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics) for statistical or marketing purposes. Pixel tags can be used to analyze information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The information may also be stored in cookies on the user’s device and may contain, among other things, technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, time of visit and other information about the use of our online offer, as well as being linked to such information from other sources.
The following presentation provides an overview of third-party providers and their content, together with links to their data protection declarations, which contain further information on the processing of data and, in some cases already mentioned here, options for objection (so-called opt-out):
