Cookies do not cause any damage to your end device, do not contain viruses, Trojans or other malware. In the cookie, infor­mation is stored that arises in each case in connection with the specific end device used. This does not mean, however, that we gain direct knowledge of your identity. The use of cookies serves on the one hand to make the use of our offer more pleasant for you. For example, we use so-called session cookies to recognize that you have already visited individual pages of our website. These are automat­i­cally deleted after you leave our site. In addition, we also use temporary cookies to optimize user-friend­liness, which are stored on your terminal device for a certain fixed period of time. If you visit our site again to use our services, it is automat­i­cally recog­nized that you have already been to our site and which entries and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter them again. On the other hand, we use cookies to statis­ti­cally record the use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our offer for you (see section 4). These cookies enable us to automat­i­cally recognize that you have already been to our site when you visit it again. These cookies are automat­i­cally deleted after a defined period of time. The data processed by cookies is necessary for the afore­men­tioned purposes to protect our legit­imate interests and those of third parties in accor­dance with Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

4. Analysis tools

a) Tracking tools
The tracking measures listed below and used by us are carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DSGVO. With the tracking measures used, we want to ensure a needs-based design and the ongoing optimization of our website. On the other hand, we use the tracking measures to statis­ti­cally record the use of our website and evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our offer for you. These interests are to be regarded as legit­imate within the meaning of the afore­men­tioned provision. The respective data processing purposes and data categories can be found in the corre­sponding tracking tools.

a.1) Google Analytics
For the purpose of demand-oriented design and continuous optimization of our pages, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ( intl/en/about/) (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter “Google”). In this context, pseudo­nymized usage profiles are created and cookies (see under section 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 previ­ously visited page),
  • host name of the accessing computer (IP address),
  • time of the server request,

are trans­mitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The infor­mation is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website and internet use for the purposes of market research and demand-oriented design of these web pages. This infor­mation may also be trans­ferred to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on our behalf. Under no circum­stances will your IP address be merged with other Google data. The IP addresses are anonymized so that an assignment is not possible (IP masking). You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appro­priate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full function­ality of this website. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on ( As an alter­native to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent the collection by Google Analytics by clicking An opt-out cookie will be set, which prevents the future collection of your data when visiting this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again. Further infor­mation on data protection in connection with Google Analytics can be found, for example, in the Google Analytics help (

a.2) Google Adwords Conversion Tracking
In order to statis­ti­cally record the use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our website for you, we also use Google Conversion Tracking. In this process, Google Adwords sets a cookie (see section 4) on your computer if you have accessed our website via a Google ad. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identi­fi­cation. If the user visits certain pages of the Adwords customer’s website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Adwords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked across Adwords customers’ websites. The infor­mation obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Adwords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. The Adwords customers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any infor­mation that can be used to personally identify users. If you do not wish to partic­ipate in the tracking process, you can also refuse the setting of a cookie required for this — for example, via a browser setting that generally deacti­vates the automatic setting of cookies. You can also disable cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the “” domain.

  • pursuant to Art. 18 DSGVO, to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data, insofar as the accuracy of the data is disputed by you, the processing is unlawful, but you object to its erasure and we no longer require the data, but you need it for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims or you have objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO;
  • pursuant to Art. 20 DSGVO, to receive your personal data that you have provided to us in a struc­tured, common and machine-readable format or to request that it be trans­ferred to another controller;

6. Right of objection

If your personal data is processed on the basis of legit­imate interests pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DSGVO, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO, provided that there are grounds for doing so that arise from your particular situation or the objection is directed against direct adver­tising.

If you would like to exercise your right of revocation or objection, an e‑mail to is sufficient.

7. Data security

Within the website visit, we use the widespread SSL procedure (Secure Socket Layer) in conjunction with the highest encryption level supported by your browser. As a rule, this is a 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit v3 technology instead. You can tell whether an individual page of our website is encrypted by the closed key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser. We also use appro­priate technical and organi­za­tional security measures to protect your data against accidental or inten­tional manip­u­lation, partial or complete loss, destruction or against unautho­rized access by third parties. Our security measures are contin­u­ously improved in line with techno­logical developments.

8. e‑mails — contact form

Messages sent by e‑mail may have security vulner­a­bil­ities. For example, e‑mails can be inter­cepted, viewed or even manip­u­lated during trans­mission. We consider the dangers of unsecured e‑mail corre­spon­dence to be well known. If we receive an e‑mail from you, we assume that you agree to respond by e‑mail despite the known risks. Otherwise, you must explicitly refer to another form of commu­ni­cation. Upon request, we are also able to encrypt our e‑mail corre­spon­dence using common encryption standards. Due to the further devel­opment of our website and offers on it or due to changed legal or official require­ments, it may become necessary to change this data protection decla­ration. You can access and print out the current data protection decla­ration at any time on the website at
