Privacy Policy

The protection of your personal data is important to us. We therefore process your data exclusively on the basis of the legal regulations (DSGVO – European Law, TMG – German Law). In our data protection declaration we inform you about the most important aspects of data processing on our website.

Collection, processing and use of personal data

You can visit our site without providing any personal information. We only store access data without personal references such as the name of your internet service provider, the page from which you visited us or the name of the requested file. This data is evaluated exclusively to record the number of visitors and to improve our website in general.  It does not allow us to draw any conclusions with regard to your identity.

Personal data is only collected if you voluntarily provide it to us by e-mail to privacy(at), via the contact form or via the comment function. We use the data provided by you without your separate consent exclusively to answer the questions asked or for the purpose of publishing the comment left. Once your query has been fully responded to, your data will be blocked for further use and deleted after expiry of any applicable legal retention periods, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data.

Comment function of our website

The data collected in connection with the comment function will be stored for the entire period of publication of the comment and, if necessary, used to the extent permitted by law, e.g. to contact third parties in the event that the published comment infringes the rights of third parties. Subsequently, this data will also be blocked for further use and deleted after expiry of any applicable legal retention periods, unless you have expressly consented to the further use of your data.


Our website uses so-called cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your computer, smartphone or tablet using your browser. They’re not doing any damage. We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly. Some cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. They enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit us. If you do not wish to do so, you can set your browser to inform you about the setting of cookies and only allow this in individual cases. When cookies are deactivated, the functionality of our website may be limited.

Analytics services

Our website uses Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users access the site. For this purpose, the usage information generated by the cookie (including your shortened IP address) is transmitted to servers at Google and stored there for usage analysis purposes. Your IP address is recorded during this process and immediately made anonymous, so that you as a user remain anonymous to us. For more information, please see Google’s privacy policy:

If you do not agree to the storage and evaluation of this data from your visit, then you can object to the subsequent storage and use at any time by mouse click. In this case, an opt-out cookie is stored in your browser, which means that Google Analytics does not collect any session data. You can also download and install a special extension for your browser from Google to prevent the collection and use of data generated by the cookie.

Data processing is carried out on the basis of the statutory provisions as well as Art 6 para 1 lit a (consent) and/or f (legitimate interest) of the DSGVO. Our concern in the sense of the DSGVO (legitimate interest) is the improvement of our website. Since the privacy of our users is important to us, the user data is kept anonymous for a period of 26 months.

Every user of our Internet offer has the right to request information at any time about what data about him or her is stored and for what purpose this storage is carried out. Any user may be required to delete data whose storage is inadmissible or no longer necessary. We provide information about stored data on the basis of a written request. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us in writing or by e-mail.

If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or your data protection claims have otherwise been violated in any way, you can complain to the supervisory authority. In Germany, this is the Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information.
