Purpose of the processing:
When someone visits our website, the internet browser used by the visitor automatically sends data to the server of this website and stores it in a log file for a limited period of time. Until automatic deletion, the following data will be stored without any further entry by the visitor:

  • IP address of the visitor's terminal,
  • date and time of access by the visitor,
  • name and URL of the page accessed by the visitor,
  • internet page from which the visitor arrives at the internet page (so-called "referrer URL"),
  • browser and operating system of the visitor's terminal device, and
  • the name of the access provider used by the visitor.

The processing of this personal data is justified in accordance with Article 6(1) sentence 1 letter f of the DSGVO. The operator of the website has a legitimate interest in data processing for this purpose,

  • to establish the connection to the website quickly,
  • to enable user-friendly use of the website,
  • to recognise and guarantee the security and stability of the systems, and
  • to facilitate and improve the administration of the website.

The processing is expressly not carried out for the purpose of gaining knowledge about the person visiting the website. If you use our contact form, we will use the data provided exclusively to process your request.

Recipients of Personal Data
In addition, your personal data will only be passed on or otherwise transmitted to third parties if this is necessary for the purpose of contract processing, if this is necessary for billing purposes, if this is required by legal regulations or if you have given your prior consent.
The recipients in these cases are:

Postal and goods transport service providers and, where applicable, contract processors with whom we have concluded data protection agreements.

The personal data collected is not transferred to a third country or an international organisation.



So-called “cookies” are used on the website. These are data packets that are exchanged between the website server and the visitor's browser. These are stored when visiting the website by the devices used (PC, notebook, tablet, smartphone, etc.). In this respect, cookies cannot cause any damage to the devices used. In particular, they do not contain viruses or other malware. Information is stored in the cookies that can be accessed in each case in connection with the specifically used terminal device. Under no circumstances can we obtain direct knowledge through them of the identity of the visitor to the website.

Cookies are largely accepted according to the basic browser settings. The browser settings can be modified so that cookies are either not accepted on the devices used or so that a special message is displayed before a new cookie is created. However, it should be noted that the deactivation of cookies may result in not all functions of the website being usable in the best possible way.

The use of cookies serves to make the use of our website more comfortable. For example, “session cookies” can be used to determine whether the visitor has already visited individual pages of the website. After leaving the website, these session cookies are automatically deleted.

Temporary cookies are used to improve user-friendliness. They are stored on the visitor's device for a temporary period. When you visit the website again, it is automatically recognised that the visitor has visited the page previously and which entries and settings were made, in order not to have to repeat them.

Cookies are also used to analyse visits to the website for statistical purposes and to improve the service. These cookies make it possible to automatically recognise, when you visit the website again, that the website has already been called up by the visitor previously. Here, cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period of time.
The data processing by cookies is justified for the above-mentioned purposes in order to protect our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6(1) sentence 1 letter f DSGVO.
