Data Protection Declaration

Data Protection

The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with data protection legislation and this data protection declaration. Our web page can in general be used without providing personal data. Where personal data (for example name, address or email addresses) are collected on our pages, this is as far as possible always on a voluntary basis. These data are not transferred to third parties without your explicit consent. We would point out that data transmission via the Internet (e.g. in email communications) may involve security vulnerabilities. Data cannot be completely protected from access by third parties.

Data Protection Declaration for the Use of Google Analytics

This website uses functions of Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses "cookies" which are text files stored on your computer and allow your use of the website to be analyzed. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

More information about the handling of user data at Google Analytics is available in Google's data protection declaration:

Browser Plug-in

However, should you do so, you may not be able to make full use of all the features of this website.

Contract Data Processing

We have concluded a contract data processing agreement with Google and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities in our use of Google Analytics.

IP Anonymization

We have enabled the "IP anonymization" function on this website. This function truncates your IP address within member states of the European Union or other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transfer. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the US and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services relating to website and Internet usage for the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

Cookies web pages make use of cookies. Cookies are text files placed and stored on a computer system by an Internet browser. Numerous web pages and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a cookie ID which uniquely identifies the cookie. The ID consists of a sequence of characters which web pages and servers can associate with the specific Internet browser in which the cookie has been stored. This allows the visited web pages and servers to distinguish between the particular browser of the individual in question and other Internet browsers containing other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified from the unique cookie ID. Using cookies allows to provide the users of this web page with more user-friendly services which would not be possible without setting cookies. The information and offers made on our web page can be optimized for the user by means of a cookie. As mentioned, cookies allow us to recognize the users of our web page. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our web page. For example, a web page user who accepts cookies need not input their access data again each time they visit because this is done by the web page and the cookie placed on the user's computer system. Another example is the shopping cart cookie in an online shop. The online shop uses a cookie to record the article which a customer has placed in their virtual shopping cart. The individual in question can at any time prevent our web page from setting cookies by making appropriate settings in their Internet browser and so permanently object to cookies being set. In addition, cookies which have already been set can be deleted at any time using an Internet browser or other software. This is possible in all usual Internet browsers. If the individual in question disables cookies from being set in their Internet browser, it might under certain circumstances not be possible to make full use of all the functions of our web page.

Server Log Files

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores the following information in what are known as server log files which your browser automatically transmits to us:

  • browser type/version
  • operating system used
  • referrer URL
  • host name of the accessing computer
  • time of server request

These items of information cannot be associated with specific persons and are not merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to review these data at a later date if we become aware of concrete evidence of unlawful use.

Contact Form

If you send us requests via a contact form, your information from the form, including the contact data you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the request and in the event of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

Objection to Promotional Emails

We hereby object to the use of the contact data published in the context of our duty to publish an imprint for the purpose of sending promotional and information material which has not been explicitly requested. The page operators explicitly retain the right to take legal action in the event of unrequested promotional information, for instance spam emails, being sent.

Exclusion of Liability (Disclaimer)

Liability for Content

Pursuant to section 7, paragraph 1 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG), we as service providers are responsible under general legislation for our own content on these pages. However, pursuant to sections 8 to 10 TMG, we as service providers are not obliged to monitor transmitted or stored third party information or to investigate circumstances which are indicative of illegal activity.

This is without prejudice any obligation to remove or bar the use of information under general legislation. Liability in this respect can, however, only be accepted from the time we become aware of a specific infringement of rights. On becoming aware of such infringements of rights, we will immediately remove this content.

Liability for Links

Our provision contains links to external, third party web pages, the content of which we cannot influence. We therefore cannot accept any liability for such third party content. The provider or operator of linked pages is always responsible for the content of the pages. Linked pages are checked for possible rights infringements at the time of linking. No unlawful content was apparent at the time of linking.

However, in the absence of specific grounds to suspect an infringement of rights, permanent monitoring of the linked pages is unreasonable. On becoming aware of infringements of rights, we will immediately remove such links.


The content and works created on these pages by the page operator are subject to German copyright law. Duplication, processing, dissemination and any kind of exploitation beyond the limits of copyright law require written consent from the respective author or creator. Downloading and copying of this page are permitted only for private, non-commercial use.

Where the content on this page was not created by the operator, third party copyright is observed. In particular, third party content is indicated as such. Should you nevertheless become aware of a copyright infringement, please let us know. On becoming aware of infringements of rights, we will immediately remove such content.
