Privacy Policy

We are pleased about your visit to our website. Accordingly, we would like to inform you about how we handle your data in accordance with Art. 13 of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO).


Responsible Controller

The responsible controller as defined in the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other national data protection laws of the EU member states as well as other data protection-related provisions is specified in the Imprint.



Usage Data

Any time our website is accessed, site usage data is temporarily utilised on our web server as a record for statistical purposes in order to improve the quality of our web pages. This data record consists of 

  • the details and location of the requested content, 
  • the date and time of access, 
  • the amount of data transmitted, 
  • the access status (content transmitted, content not found),
  • information on the browser type and version used, 
  • the user's operating system,
  • websites from which the user's system was directed to our website, 
  • the user's IP address, which is truncated on collection, to remove the possibility of personal profile generation. 

The record data specified above is always evaluated anonymously. 



Storage of IP Adresses 

We do not store any other IP addresses.



Data Security 

We take technical and organisational measures to protect your data as comprehensively as possible from unwanted access. We use an encryption procedure on our web pages. Your data is transferred from your computer to our server and vice versa via the Internet using TLS encryption. You can usually recognise this by the fact that the lock symbol in the status bar of your browser is closed and the address line begins with https://.



Required Cookies 

We use cookies on our websites which are necessary for the use of our websites. Cookies are small text files that can be stored and read on your end device. A distinction is made between session cookies, which are deleted as soon as you close your browser, and permanent cookies, which are stored beyond the individual session. 


We do not use these required cookies for analysis, tracking or advertising purposes. 


In some cases, these cookies only contain information on certain settings and cannot be traced back to individuals. They may also be necessary to enable user guidance, security and implementation of the site. 


We use these cookies on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO. 


You can set your browser to inform you about the placement of cookies. This makes the use of cookies transparent for you. You can also delete cookies at any time using the appropriate browser setting and prevent the setting of new cookies. Please note that our web pages may then not be able to be displayed and some functions may no longer be available for technical reasons.




We use the web analysis tool "Matomo" to tailor our website to your needs. Matomo creates user profiles based on pseudonyms. For this purpose permanent cookies are stored on your end device and are read by us when you access our site. In this way we are able to recognise returning visitors and count them as such.


The data processing is based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO or § 15 Para. 3 S. 1 TMG, if you have given your consent via our banner. 


You can revoke your consent at any time. Please follow this link and make the appropriate settings via our banner.  



Embedded Youtube Videos 

On our web pages we embed videos from Google LLC's platform YouTube, which are not stored on our servers. In order to ensure that calling up our web pages with embedded videos does not automatically lead to the reloading of third-party content, we only display locally stored preview images of the videos in a first step. This does not provide the third party provider with any information. 


Only after clicking on the preview image will third-party content be loaded. This informs the third party that you have called up our site and provides the technically necessary usage data. The third party provider is then also able to implement tracking technologies. We have no influence on further data processing by the third party provider. By clicking on the preview image, you give us your consent to reload content from the third-party provider.  


The embedding takes place on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO, provided that you have given your consent by clicking on the preview image. Please note that the embedding of many videos leads to your data being processed outside the EU or EEA. In some countries there is a risk that authorities may access the data for security and surveillance purposes without you being informed or having the right to appeal. If we use providers in insecure third countries and you give your consent, the transfer to an insecure third country is based on Art. 49 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO.



Newsletter Registration and Delivery 

You can order a newsletter on our website. Please note that we need certain data (at least your e-mail address) to register for the newsletter. 


The newsletter will only be sent if you have given us your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 Paragraph 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO. After placing an order on our website, you will receive a confirmation e-mail to the e-mail address you have provided (double opt-in). You can revoke your consent at any time. An easy way to revoke your consent is, for example, to use the cancellation link provided in every newsletter. 


Within the scope of the newsletter registration, we store further data in addition to the data already mentioned, insofar as this is necessary so that we can prove that you have ordered our newsletter. This may include the storage of the complete IP address at the time of ordering or confirmation of the newsletter as well as a copy of the confirmation e-mail sent by us. The corresponding data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f DSGVO and is carried out in the interest of being able to account for the legality of the newsletter dispatch.    


If you order our newsletter, we ask you to agree to further newsletter tracking during the ordering process. 


If you give us the corresponding consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO, we will integrate individual tracking pixels into our newsletter, with which we can recognise when the newsletter sent to you was called up or opened and individualise the links available in the newsletter in order to be able to evaluate when you clicked on which link. 


Should you wish to revoke your consent, please use the link provided in each newsletter to cancel or adjust your consent. 



Data Storage Period 

As regards the storage period, we will delete personal data, unless we have already informed you in detail about the storage period, if they are no longer required for the aforementioned processing purposes and no legal storage obligations prevent deletion. 



Further Data Processors 

We pass on your data to service providers who support us in the operation of our websites and related processes as part of an order processing in accordance with Art. 28 DSGVO. These are, for example, hosting service providers. Our service providers are strictly bound by instructions and are correspondingly contractually obliged to us.


Following below, we name the contract processors with whom we work, insofar as we have not already done so in the above text of the data protection declaration. Should data be transferred outside the EU or the EEA in this context, we will provide information on the appropriate level of data protection.

Your Rights as an Identifiable Individual

When processing your personal data, the DSGVO grants you certain rights as an identifiable individual: 


Right of Access (Art. 15 DSGVO) 

You have the right to obtain confirmation as to whether personal data concerning you is being processed; if this is the case, you have the right to be informed of this personal data and to receive the information specified in Art. 15 of the DPA. 


Right to Rectification (Art. 16 DSGVO) 

You have the right to request without delay the rectification of incorrect personal data concerning you and, if necessary, the completion of incomplete data.


Right to Erasure (Art. 17 DSGVO) 

You have the right to demand that personal data concerning you be deleted immediately if one of the reasons listed in Art. 17 DSGVO applies. 


Right to Restriction of Processing (Art. 18 DSGVO) 

You have the right to demand that the processing be restricted if one of the conditions listed in Art. 18 DSGVO is met, e.g. if you have lodged an objection to the processing, for the duration of the examination by the controller.


Right to Data Portability (Art. 20 DSGVO) 

In certain cases, which are listed in detail in Art. 20 DSGVO, you have the right to receive the personal data concerning you in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request the transfer of such data to a third party.


Right to Withdraw (Art. 7 DSGVO) 

If the processing of data is based on your consent, you are entitled to revoke your consent to the use of your personal data at any time in accordance with Art. 7 Para. 3 DSGVO. Please note that the revocation is only effective for the future. Processing that took place before the revocation is not affected by this. 


Right to Object (Art. 21 DSGVO) 

If data is collected on the basis of Art. 6 Paragraph 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO (data processing to safeguard legitimate interests) or on the basis of Art. 6 Paragraph 1 S. 1 lit. e DSGVO (data processing to safeguard public interests or in the exercise of official authority), you have the right to object to the processing at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation. We will then no longer process the personal data unless there are demonstrably compelling reasons for processing which are worthy of protection and outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.


Right to Appeal to a Supervisory Authority (Art. 77 DSGVO) 

Under Art. 77 DSGVO, you have the right to appeal to a supervisory authority if you believe that the processing of data concerning you is in breach of data protection regulations. The right of appeal may be asserted in particular before a supervisory authority in the Member State of your habitual residence, your place of work or the place of the suspected infringement.
