Data protection is very important to us. We want your visit to our website to be safe, pleasant and informative. It is possible to use our site without providing any personal data. Different regulations may apply to the use of individual services on our site, which in this case will be explained separately below. Your personal data (e.g. name, address, email, telephone number, etc.) will only be processed by us in accordance with the provisions of German data protection law. Data is personal if it can be clearly assigned to a specific natural person. The legal basis for data protection can be found in the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG). The following regulations inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the collection, use and processing of personal data by the provider.

We would like to point out that internet-based data transmission has security gaps and that complete protection against access by third parties is therefore impossible.

We use so-called cookies on our site to recognize multiple uses of our offer by the same user/internet connection owner. Cookies are small text files that your Internet browser places and saves on your computer. They serve to optimize our website and our offers. These are usually so-called “session cookies” which are deleted after the end of your visit.
However, some of these cookies provide information to automatically recognize you. This recognition is based on the IP address stored in the cookies. The information obtained in this way is used to optimize our offers and to give you easier access to our site.
You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting your browser accordingly; However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to fully use all of the functions of our website.

Contact option
On our website we offer you the opportunity to contact us by email. In this case, the information provided by the user will be stored for the purpose of processing their contact. It will not be passed on to third parties. The data collected in this way is also not compared with data that may be collected by other components of our site.

Use of Google Analytics with anonymization function
On our site we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter “Google”. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and thereby enable your use of the website to be analyzed.

The information generated by these cookies, such as the time, location and frequency of your website visits, including your IP address, is transmitted to Google in the USA and stored there.

We use Google Analytics with an IP anonymization function on our website. In this case, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area and thereby anonymized.

Google will use this information to evaluate your use of our site, to compile reports on website activity for us and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google.

According to its own statements, Google will under no circumstances associate your IP address with other Google data. You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to fully use all of the functions of our website.

Google also offers a deactivation option for the most common browsers, which gives you more control over which data is collected and processed by Google. If you activate this option, no information about your website visit will be sent to Google Analytics. However, activation does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analysis services we may use. Further information about the deactivation option provided by Google and how to activate this option can be found via the following link:
