Scope of application

With this data protection declaration, users receive information about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of their data by the provider responsible for this site.
We take the protection of your personal data very seriously, taking into account the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). With this data protection declaration we inform you in the sense of §13 Telemediengesetz (TMG) about type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by this website.

Collection of general information

With every access to this offer, information is automatically collected by us or the web space provider. This information, also known as server log files, is of a general nature and does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person.
Among other things, the following data are collected: Name of the website, file, date, data volume, web browser and web browser version, operating system, the domain name of your Internet provider, the so-called referrer URL (the page from which you accessed our website) and the IP address.
For technical reasons, data such as your IP address, Internet browser and version data or information about the website from which you accessed our site are transmitted when you visit our website. This technical information may contain personal data in individual cases. Data is personal if it can be clearly assigned to a specific natural person. This data is not assigned to a natural person; we neither analyze nor evaluate it - not even for statistical purposes. This data is not deliberately passed on by our company. We also reserve the right to subsequently check the log files in case of suspicion of illegal use of our offer.

Provision of chargeable services
We request additional data to enable us to provide services that are subject to a charge. This applies, for example, to payment details.
To ensure the security of your data during transmission, we work with encryption methods (such as SSL) via HTTPS, which reflect the current state of the art.

How to contact us
We are happy to give you the opportunity to contact us by e-mail. In this case, the information provided by the user will be stored for the purpose of processing his or her contact. The data will not be passed on to third parties. A comparison of the data collected in this way with data that may be collected by other components of our site does not take place either. Alternatively, you can also contact us at the address given in the imprint.

Integration of third-party services and content
Our offer may include content, services and work from other providers. These include maps provided by Google Maps, videos from YouTube, and graphics and images from other websites. In order for this data to be retrieved and displayed in the user's browser, the transmission of the IP address is absolutely necessary. The providers (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers") thus perceive the IP address of the respective user.

Although we make every effort to exclusively use third-party providers who only need the IP address in order to be able to deliver content, we have no influence on whether the IP address may be stored. In this case, this process is used for statistical purposes, among other things. If we have knowledge that the IP address is stored, we point this out to our users.


This website uses so-called cookies. These are text files that are stored on your computer from the server. They contain information about the browser, the IP address, the operating system and the Internet connection. This data will not be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.
Cookies have two main functions. They help us make it easier for you to navigate through our website and to display it correctly. They are not used to infiltrate viruses or start programs.
Users have the possibility to access our website without cookies. To do this, the corresponding settings must be changed in the browser. Please inform yourself on the help function of your browser how cookies are deactivated. However, we would like to point out that some functions of this website may be impaired and the user comfort may be restricted. The pages (USA) and (Europe) allow you to manage online ad cookies.

Data economy

We store personal data in accordance with the principles of data avoidance and data economy only as long as it is required or prescribed by law (legal storage period). If the purpose of the information collected no longer applies or if the storage period ends, we block or delete the data.
Your rights to information, correction, blocking, deletion, and objection
You have the right, upon request and free of charge, to request information about the personal data stored by us and/or to request correction, blocking, or deletion. Exceptions: This is the prescribed data storage for business transactions or the data is subject to the legal obligation to store.
For these purposes, please contact our data protection officer

To be able to consider a data lock at any time, it is necessary to keep the data in a lock file for control purposes. If there is no legal archiving obligation, you can also request the deletion of the data. Otherwise we block the data if you wish.

Changes to our data protection declaration
In order to ensure that our data protection declaration always complies with current legal requirements, we reserve the right to make changes at any time. This also applies in the event that the data protection declaration has to be adapted due to new or revised services, for example new services. The new data protection declaration will then take effect the next time you visit our website.
