Recording of general information

If you access our website, data of a general nature is automatically recorded. This information (server logfiles), e.g., includes the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider and the like. This exclusively concerns information which does not permit conclusions regarding you personally to be drawn. This information is technically necessary in order to correctly provide contents of websites requested by you and is necessarily created if you use the internet. Anonymous information of this type is statistically evaluated by us in order to optimise our internet presence and its underlying technology.


If you subscribe to our newsletter, the data specified by you will exclusively be used for this purpose. Subscribers can also be informed via e-mail of circumstances which are relevant for the service or the registration (for example changes of the newsletter offering or of technical conditions).

An effective registration requires a valid e-mail address. In order to check that logging-on is really effected by the owner of an e-mail address we use the “double opt-in” procedure. To this end, we log the subscription of the newsletter, the submission of an e-mail confirmation and receipt of the reply requested therein. Further data is not recorded. The data are exclusively used for sending out the newsletter and it is not forwarded to third parties.

The approval for the recording of your personal data and its use for sending out the newsletter can be revoked at any time. You will find a corresponding link in every newsletter for this purpose. Moreover, you can unsubscribe the newsletter directly on this website at any time and inform us of your corresponding request via the contact address to be found at the end of this document.

Contact form

If you contact us via e-mail or the contact form, the data provided by you will be saved for the purpose of processing of the inquiry as well as for potential follow-up questions.

Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google“). Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, text files, which are saved on your computer and which permit an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie regarding your use of this website is usually transferred to a server in the USA and saved there. Because of the activation of IP anonymisation on these websites, however, your IP address is shortened by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area in advance. The full IP address is only transmitted to the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website in order to compile reports on the website activities or to provide further services connected with the use of the website and the use of the website towards the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the framework of Google Analytics will not be connected with other Google data. You can prevent saving of these cookies by means of a corresponding setting in your browser software; however, we would like to point out that, in this case, you might not be able to use all functions of this website to the full extent. In addition, you can also prevent recording of the data generated by the cookie regarding your use of this website (including your IP address) by Google as well as processing of such data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link:

Link: Browser add-on to deactivate Google Analytics

In addition to or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can stop tracking by Google Analytics on our website by clicking on this link. As a result, an opt-out cookie will be installed on your computer. This will prevent recording by Google Analytics for this website and for this browser in future for as long as the cookie remains installed on your browser.


We also use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files which are transferred from a website server to your hard disk. As a result, you will automatically receive certain data, such as, e.g., the IP address, browsers used, the operating system, via your computer and your connection to the internet.

Cookies cannot be used to start programs or transfer viruses to a computer. With the help of the information contained in cookies we can facilitate website navigation for you and enable you to correctly display our websites.

The data recorded by us will never be forwarded to any third party; moreover, a link with personal data will not be established without your approval.

Of course, you can also browse our website without cookies, in principle. By default, internet browsers are set to accept cookies. You can deactivate the use of cookies at any time through the settings of your browser. Please use the help function of your internet browser to find out how you can change these settings. Please note that individual functions of our website might not work at times if you have deactivated the use of cookies.

Google AdWords

Our website uses Google Conversion Tracking. If you have reached our website via an ad placed by google, Google Adwords places a cookie on your computer. The cookie for conversion tracking is placed if a user clicks on an ad placed by Google. These cookies cease to be valid after 30 days and do not serve the purpose of personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can see that the user clicked on the ad and was forwarded to this page. Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. As a result, cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained with the help of the conversion cookie are used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. The customers learn the total number of users that have clicked on their ad and been forwarded to a page equipped with a conversion tracking tag. However, they are not given any information which can be used to personally identify users.

If you do not wish to take part in tracking, you can reject setting of a cookie – for example via a browser setting which generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies or you can set your browser so that cookies from the domain “” are blocked.

Please note that you must not delete the opt-out cookies unless you wish measurement data to be recorded. If you have deleted all cookies in the browser, you again have to set the opt-out cookie.

Social Media Plugins

Our web pages use social media plug-ins supplied by the providers listed below. The plugins are indicated by the corresponding logo. 

Via these plugs, information (which can also include personal data) is sent to the service provider and, if applicable, used by it. We prevent the inadvertent and unconscious recording and transmission of data to the service provider with the help of a 2-click solution. In order to activate a desired social media plug-in, it has to be activated by clicking on a corresponding switch. Recording of information and their transmission to the service provider are only initiated by the activation of the plug-in. We do not record any personal data with the help of the social media plug-ins or their use.

We cannot influence which data an activated plug-in records and how these data are used by the provider. At present, we have to assume that a direct connection to the provider’s services is expanded and that, at least, the IP address and device-specific information are recorded and used. Moreover, the service providers might try to save cookies on the computer used. Information on the specific data recorded and on how they are used is provided in the data protection information of the respective service provider. Please note: If you are logged on to Facebook at the same time, Facebook can identify you as a visitor to the specific website.
