General Information

When you visit our website, personal data is processed. We operate on the principle of data avoidance. Unless absolutely necessary, we do not collect personal data. It is not necessary to provide personal data in order to visit our website. Where there is an option to provide such data (e.g. on a contact form), this is on a purely voluntary basis. No personal data collected on this website will be shared with third parties, thereby preventing the transmission or processing of personal data to or in countries outside of the European Union.

Collection of Personal Data at this Website

The technology that allows internet pages to be displayed in your browser requires that the IP address of the device you are using be processed, along with additional information about your browser and your browsing history. In order to guarantee the confidentiality and integrity of the personal data processed on our IT systems and to correct errors on the website, the following data is logged:

  • IP address
  • Date and time of the page request
  • Operating system
  • Browser type, browser version, and browser language
  • Page viewed
  • Amount of data transmitted
  • URL from which the page was accessed
  • Connection status

The IP address will be deleted from all systems used in connection with the operation of this website after no more than seven days (in compliance with applicable law). The other data that is logged cannot be used to identify an individual. If you make use of additional services on our website that require registration, we will process your registration data (first name, last name, user name, and any other personal information you provide during registration). You will have agreed to our use of this data during the registration process. The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) of the EU-GDPR. Our ‘interest’ within the context of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) is the operation of this website and the protection of confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the data.


To enhance your experience on our website, we use so-called ‘session cookies’. Session cookies are small units of information that are stored by websites in the browser memory of the visitor’s computer or mobile device. With a session cookie, a randomly generated unique identification number, or ‘session ID’, is stored. In addition, these cookies contain information about their origin and their expiration date. Session cookies are not able to store any other data. In contrast to permanent cookies, which can recognise visitors even after long periods of time, the session cookies that we use are deleted when you leave our website. We also use cookies for web analysis, and these expire after 3 hours (see below). You can prevent cookies from being stored on your computer by changing your browser settings. However, we would like to point out that if you do so, you may not be able to use the full functionality of our website. Cookies cannot install or open any programs or other applications on your computer. The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) of the EU-GDPR in connection with §15 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG). Our ‘interest’ within the context of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) is the operation of this website.
