We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as provided for in the various storage periods provided for by law.

Collection of general information when you visit our website
When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected by means of a cookie. This information (server log files) includes the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and similar information. This is exclusively information which does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person.
This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the content you have requested from websites and is mandatory when using the Internet. They are processed in particular for the following purposes:
- ensuring a trouble-free connection of the website,
- ensuring a smooth use of our website,
- evaluation of system security and stability, and
for other administrative purposes.
The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest from the aforementioned purposes for data collection. We do not use your data to draw conclusions about you personally. The recipients of the data are only the controller and, if applicable, the data processor.
Anonymous information of this kind may be statistically evaluated by us in order to optimise our website and the technology behind it.
Like many other websites, we also use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. This automatically provides us with 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 transmit viruses to a computer. We use the information contained in cookies to display our website correctly and help you navigate it.
Under no circumstances will the data we collect be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.
To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.
If you contact us regarding any questions by e-mail or contact form, please give us your voluntary consent for the purpose of contacting us. A valid e-mail address is required for this purpose. This is used to assign the request and then reply to it. The input of further data is optional. The information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing your inquiry and for possible follow-up questions. After your request has been processed, your personal data will be automatically deleted.
Use of Matomo
The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website is stored on a server in Germany.
The IP address is anonymised immediately after processing and before it is stored. You have the option of preventing the installation of cookies by changing the setting of your browser software. We would like to point out that with the appropriate settings not all functions of this website may be available any more.
Use of script libraries (Google Web Fonts)
In order to present our contents accurately and in a visually appealing way across all browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries on this website, such as Google Web Fonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/). Google Web Fonts are transferred to your browser’s cache to avoid multiple loading. If your browser does not support Google Web Fonts or does not allow access, the content will be displayed in a default font.
The call up of script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library operator. It is theoretically possible – but currently also unclear whether and, if so, for what purposes – that operators of corresponding libraries collect data.

Embedded YouTube videos
Some of the pages on our website contain embedded YouTube videos. The corresponding plug-ins are operated by YouTube, LLC (901 Cherry Ave – San Bruno – CA 94066 – USA). Visiting a page with the YouTube plug-in creates a connection to the YouTube servers and YouTube is notified about which pages you visit. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube can associate your surfing behaviour with you personally. In order to prevent this, you must log out of your YouTube account before you proceed.
If you have disabled the storage of cookies for the Google Ad programme, such cookies will not be set when you watch YouTube videos, either. However, YouTube also stores non-personal user information in other cookies. You must block the storage of cookies in your browser if you wish to prevent this.
For more information on data privacy on YouTube, please refer to the provider’s data privacy statement at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/
Social media plug-ins
Social media plug-ins from the providers listed below are used on our website. The plug-ins are indicated by the brand logo of the corresponding provider.
Under certain circumstances these plug-ins are used to send information, which may also include personal data, to the service provider for storage and further use. We have implemented a 2-click solution to prevent the accidental or unintentional collection and transmission of data to the service provider. A click on the corresponding button is required to activate a selected social media plug-in, which will then allow information to be collected and transmitted to the service provider. For our part, we do not collect any personal data about or via the use of social media plug-ins.
The social media buttons of the following service providers are integrated on our website:
Facebook Inc. (1601 California Ave – Palo Alto – CA 94304 – USA)
Twitter Inc. (795 Folsom St – Suite 600 – San Francisco – CA 94107 – USA)
