Data Protection Notice

We are delighted at your interest and your visit to our website. Protection of your personal data is especially important to us in every phase of the collaboration. We would therefore like to explain to you what information we collect and how this information is used.

1. Handling of usage data on our homepage

1.1 Server log data

The page provider automatically collects and stores information in what are called server log files, which your browser automatically transfers. These data are mainly:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL (origin address)
  • Date and time of day of the server request
  • IP address

These data are stored separately from other data that you may transfer to us, and are not merged with data from other sources.

The basis for data processing is Article 6, Para. 1, Letter f of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), which allows data processing based on legitimate interests. In this case, there is legitimate interest in the secure, trouble-free operation of the web server. To ensure this, the administration must be able to recognise and understand attacks on the system, and its malfunctions, via server log files. Accesses to the server must be stored to enable recognition of attack patterns. These data are deleted as soon as they are no longer needed. As a rule, this happens after seven (7) days. For technical reasons, data are available to the hosting service provider, but the latter is bound by our instructions and contractually obliged to us.

1.2 Contact form

When you send enquiries to us via a contact form, we store and process your information from the form in order to process the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions.

Mandatory fields are identified accordingly. Completing mandatory fields is necessary to enable us to reply to and process your enquiries. Moreover, all information is voluntary.

Data entered into the contact form are processed exclusively based on your consent (Article 6, Para. 1, Letter a of the GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. Revocation applies only for the future.

We do not give your data to third parties without your consent or without another permissible legal basis. The fact that our technical service providers can gain insight cannot be excluded, but they are, however, obliged to maintain secrecy.

The data you enter into the contact form remain with us until you ask us to delete it, or you revoke your consent to storage, or the purpose of the data storage no longer applies (e.g. after processing of your enquiry is complete). Mandatory statutory provisions – especially retention periods – remain unaffected.

1.3 Cookies

We can use cookies for technical reasons, to optimise our Internet pages and to determine page views.

The cookies that are involved can be seen here, where you can also revoke consents that may possibly have been granted.

1.4 Google Analytics / Google Tag Manager

With your consent, Google’s web analysis service is used. Detailed information about this can be accessed here, where you can also revoke consents that may possibly have been granted.

1.5 YouTube

With your consent, YouTube videos are loaded and displayed on our pages. Detailed information about it can be accessed here, where you can also revoke consents that may possibly have been granted.

1.6. Consent management in cookies and other data storage

We use a service of Usercentrics GmbH, Sendlinger Strasse 7, 80331 Munich, Germany, to manage consents granted for cookies and similar technologies. Detailed information about this can be accessed here.

1.7 Google Web Fonts

For the uniform display of certain typefaces, our web site uses what are called Web Fonts provided by Google. When a page is accessed, your browser loads the necessary fonts directly from Google to enable your terminal device to display them correctly. To do this, your browser makes a connection to Google servers in the USA. As a result of this, Google obtains knowledge that our web site is being accessed through your IP address.

The use of Google Web Fonts is necessary to ensure a uniform typeface on our web site. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Article 6, Para. 1, Letter f of the GDPR.

You can find more information about Google Web Fonts at and in Google’s Data Protection Declaration:
