Recording of general information

When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically recorded. This information (server log files) includes e.g. the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider, and other similar information. This information is only of a nature that cannot be traced back to you as an individual. This information is technically required in order to correctly provide the content of websites requested by you, and is absolutely necessary when using the Internet. Anonymous information of this type is statistically evaluated by us in order to optimise our Internet presence and the technology that supports it.


Like many other websites, we use so-called ‘cookies’. Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server onto your hard drive. Through cookies, we obtain automatically specified data about your computer and your connection to the Internet, such as the IP address, the browser used and the operating system.

Cookies cannot be used in order to start programmes or transmit viruses to a computer. On the basis of information contained in the cookies, we can make navigation easier for you and enable our websites to be displayed correctly.

Under no circumstances is the data recorded by us forwarded to third parties or linked to personal data without your approval.

Naturally, you can in general also use our website without cookies. Overall, Internet browsers are set to accept cookies. You can deactivate the use of cookies at any time by changing your browser settings. Please use the Help function of your Internet browser to find out how you can make these changes. Please note that individual functions of our website may not work if you deactivate the use of cookies.

SSL encryption

In order to protect the security of your data during transfer, we use encryption methods that conform to the latest technological developments (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.

Contact form

If you contact us via e-mail or via the contact form, the information you enter will be stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and for possible follow-up questions.

Deletion or blockage of data

We adhere to the basic principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes named here, or as is prescribed by the wide range of different storage periods in the legislation. Following fulfilment of the respective purpose or expiry of these periods, the data in question is routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory requirements.

Embedded YouTube videos

We embed YouTube videos on several of our websites. The operator of these plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. If you visit a page with a YouTube plugin, a connection to YouTube servers is created. YouTube is informed about which page you are visiting. When you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can personally assign your surfing behaviour to you. You can prevent this by previously logging out of your YouTube account.

When a YouTube video is started, the provider uses cookies that collect information about user behaviour.

If the storage of cookies for the Google Ad programme is blocked, no such cookies will be created when you watch YouTube videos. However, YouTube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you wish to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in your browser.

For more information on data protection with YouTube, see the data protection declaration of the service provider:

Your rights to information, correction, blockage, deletion and objection

You have the right to obtain information at any time regarding your personal data that has been stored by us. You also have the right to correct, block, or, depending on the specified data storage for the processing of commercial transactions, to delete your personal data. To do so, please contact our data protection officer. The contact details are given below.

To enable a data block to be taken into account at all times, this data must be reserved in a blockage file for monitoring purposes. You can also request the deletion of data if no statutory archiving obligations applies. If such an obligation does apply, we shall block your data on request.

You can make changes or revoke an approval by sending a message to us, with revocation coming into effect in the future.

Modification of our data protection regulations

We reserve the right to occasionally adjust this data protection declaration so that it corresponds at all times to the legal requirements, or in order to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services. The new data protection declaration will then apply the next time you visit.
