Collecting general information on a visit to our website

Nature and purpose of data processing:

When you access our website, i.e., if you do not register or otherwise provide information, information of a general nature is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider, your IP address and similar. This is exclusively information which cannot be traced back to you personally.

It is processed for the following purposes in particular:

  • Ensuring a problem-free connection to the website,
  • Ensuring problem-free of our website,
  • Evaluating system security and stability, and
  • For other administrative purposes.

We do not use your data to draw conclusions about you as an individual. Information of this kind may be statistically evaluated by us to optimise our website and its underlying technology.

Legal basis:

Data processing is carried out in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Point f of the GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website.


Recipients of the data may be technical service providers who act as processors in the operation and maintenance of our website.

Storage period:

Data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the purposes for which it was collected. This is essentially the case for the data used to provide the website when the particular session is ended.

Provision prescribed or required:

The provision of the aforementioned personal data is neither legally nor contractually prescribed. However, without the IP address, the service and functionality of our website is not guaranteed. In addition, individual services may be unavailable or restricted. For this reason, it is not possible to object to this use of data.


Nature and purpose of data processing:

Like many other websites, we use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. We therefore automatically obtain certain data such as IP address, browser used, operating system and your connection to the internet.

Cookies cannot be used to start programmes or to transfer viruses to a computer. On the basis of the information contained in cookies, we can facilitate navigation and enable the correct display of our web pages.

We will never pass the data collected by us on to third parties, or establish a link this to personal data without your consent.

Of course, you can also view our website without cookies. You have two options:

1.    When accessing the website for the first time, you will be asked if you agree to the use of cookies. Cookies are not used without your consent.

2.    Internet browsers are regularly programmed to accept cookies. In general, you can disable the use of cookies at any time via your browser settings. Use the help functions of your internet browser to learn how to change these settings.

Please note that some features of our website may not be available if you have disabled the use of cookies.

You can use your browser settings to delete individual cookies or all cookies. In addition, you will receive information and instructions on how to delete these cookies or block their storage in advance. Depending on the provider of your browser, you will find the necessary information under the following links:

SSL encryption

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

Contact form

Data submitted via the contact form, including your contact details, will be stored to process your enquiry and for possible follow-up questions. This data will not be passed on without your consent.

Processing of the data entered into the contact form takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent (Article 6 Paragraph 1 Point a GDPR). You may revoke your consent at any time with an informal notification by e-mail. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Data submitted via the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to its storage, or there is no longer any need to store your data. Mandatory statutory provisions – especially retention periods – remain unaffected.

Google Analytics

For the purposes of adjusting the design and continuously optimising our websites in line with demand we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ( (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter referred to as “Google”). In this context, pseudonymised user profiles are created and cookies (see point 4) are used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website such as

• browser type/version,

• operating system used,

• referrer URL (the previous page visited),

• host name of accessing computer (IP address),

• time of server request,

is transferred to a Google server in the United States where it is stored. The information is used to analyse how the website is used, compile reports on website activity, and provide other services related to website and internet use for the purposes of market research adjusting the design of this website in line with demand. This information may also be passed on to third parties where appropriate, provided that this is required by law or where third parties are authorised to process this data. Under no circumstances will your IP address be linked to any other Google data. IP addresses are anonymised, so that no assignment is possible (IP masking). You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting your browser settings. However, please be aware that in doing so, you may not be able to make full use of all the functions on this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting and processing the data generated by cookies relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing a browser add-on:
( As an alternative to the browser add-on, particularly for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent Google Analytics from collecting data by clicking on the following link: An opt-out cookie is placed on your device which prevents future collection of your data when you visit this website. The opt-out cookie is stored on your device, and is only valid in this browser and for our website. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you will have to enable the opt-out cookie again.
