Continuous technological development, changes in our services or legal status along with other reasons may require adjustments to our privacy notice. As a result, we reserve the right to change this data privacy statement at any time and ask that you ensure that you stay regularly informed about the current version.

Basic information

The concept of personal data is defined by law. Accordingly, these are individual details about personal or material circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person. These include, for example, your legal name, your address, your telephone number or your date of birth.

Unless otherwise stated in the following sections, no personal data are collected, processed or used when using our websites. Some information will be transmitted upon accessing our website, such as the IP address, type and version of the web browser used, the operating system used, the webpage you came from and the time of the query.
We cannot use this information to identify the individual user. This information is only analysed by us statistically and used exclusively to improve the attractiveness, content and functionality of our websites.


You have the option of registering with us. We will collect and store the following data during registration:

Following registration, you will receive personal, password-protected access and will be able to view and manage the data you have entered. Registration is voluntary; however, it may be required in order to use our services.


You have the option of contacting us via e-mail at We will, of course, only use your personal data transmitted to us in this way for the purposes you have allowed upon contacting us.


To register for our newsletter, we use the so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that after you have provided your e-mail address, we will send you a confirmation e-mail to that same e-mail address requesting you to confirm that you wish to receive our newsletter. If you do not confirm this within 24 hours, your registration will be automatically deleted. Once you confirm that you do wish to receive our newsletter, we will save your e-mail address until you unsubscribe from our newsletter. The sole purpose of saving your e-mail address is so that we can send you the newsletter. Furthermore, we save your IP addresses as well as your registration and confirmation times in order to prevent misuse of your personal data.
You may withdraw your consent to us sending you our newsletter at any time. You can cancel via e-mail by clicking on the link provided in each newsletter e-mail or by sending a message to the data protection officer. The data you have provided will not be disclosed to any third parties.

Data transmission

Your data will not be transferred to third parties, unless we are legally obliged to do so, or the transfer of data is necessary for the execution of the contractual relationship, or you have explicitly consented to the disclosure of your data.


We use cookies in order to improve and optimise our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer when you visit our website and enable reassignment of your browser. Cookies store information, such as your language settings, the duration of your visit to our website or that you have already successfully logged in. This avoids having to re-enter all required data each time the website is accessed.

Most browsers accept cookies automatically. If you wish to prevent cookies from storing information, you can choose “do not accept cookies” in your browser settings. Refer to the instructions of your browser manufacturer to learn how this works in detail. Cookies already stored on your computer can be deleted at any time. We would like to point out, however, that using our website without cookies may entail limitations.

Use of Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics to analyse website usage. The resulting data is used to optimize our website and advertising measures.

Google Analytics is a web-based analytics service operated and provided by Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States). Google processes the data for website use on our behalf and is contractually obliged to take measures to ensure the confidentiality of the processed data.

During your visit to our website, the following data, among others, is recorded:

– Pages visited
– Your behaviour on the pages (for example clicks, scrolling behaviour and dwell time)
– Your approximate location (country and city)
– Your IP address (in abbreviated form, so that no clear assignment is possible)
– Technical information such as browser, Internet provider, end device and screen resolution
– Source of your visit (i.e. via which website or advertising medium you came to us)

This data is transferred to a Google server in the USA. Google complies with the data protection regulations of the « EU-US Privacy Shield » agreement.

We use Google Analytics with the extension « _anonymizeIp() ». This allows IP addresses to be processed in a shortened form, thus excluding any reference to persons. If the data collected about you contains a personal reference, this is immediately excluded and the personal data is immediately deleted.

Google Analytics stores cookies in your web browser for a period of two years since your last visit. These cookies contain a randomly generated user ID by which you can be recognised during future visits to the website.

The recorded data is stored together with the randomly generated user ID, which enables the evaluation of pseudonymous user profiles. This user-related data is automatically deleted after 14 months. Other data remains stored in aggregated form for an unlimited period of time.

If you do not agree with the collection of this data, you can prevent it by installing the browser add-on once to deactivate Google Analytics.

Social bookmarks are online bookmarks that allow users of these services to collect links and news items. These are only integrated on our website as a link to the corresponding services.

Your rights

Upon request, we will inform you in writing, in accordance with applicable law, whether or not we have stored personal data about you, and if so, which personal data this entails. You may also contact us at no cost with any questions regarding the collection, processing, or use of your personal data and their correction, blocking, deletion, or withdrawal of consent. We will respond to all reasonable requests free of charge and as soon as possible in accordance with applicable law.
