We attach particular importance to the protection of your personal data. Your personal data will be processed in accordance with the data protection regulations, in particular the European Data Protection Regulation (EU DS-GVO) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG-neu).

The following information provides an overview of the type, scope and purpose of the collection, processing and transmission of personal data as well as the security measures used to protect this data.

Personal data is individual information about personal or factual circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person, such as your name, address, telephone number, date of birth and e-mail and IP address.


1.2 Legal basis for the processing of personal data

- Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations of personal data, Art. 6 (1) lit. a EU DS-GVO serves as the legal basis. You may revoke your consent for future processing at any time in accordance with Art. 7 (3) of the EU Data Protection Regulation.

- When processing personal data that is required for the fulfilment of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, Art. 6 (1) (b) EU GDPR serves as the legal basis.

- If the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c EU DS-GVO serves as the legal basis.

- If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden, Art. 6 (1) lit. f EU DS-GVO serves as the legal basis for the processing. In this case, you have a right to object in accordance with Art. 21 EU DS-GVO.


1.3 Data deletion and storage period

Personal data is deleted as soon as the purpose for storing it no longer applies. Data may also be stored if this is required by statutory retention obligations to which our company is subject.

Upon written request, we will inform you in accordance with Art. 15 EU DS-GVO and our legal obligation under Art. 12 EU DS-GVO whether and which of your personal data is being processed or stored by us.

2.1 Provision of the website

Use of hosting service providers

Our website is hosted on servers located in the EU by a hosting service provider on the basis of commissioned processing in accordance with Art. 28 EU DS-GVO. As part of its services, the hosting service provider may have access to personal data of our users, in particular to technical data that is generated as part of the technical communication between you and our website (e.g. server log files). He is not allowed to use these for his own purposes. The use of a hosting service provider is based on our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f EU DS-GVO in the provision of infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, e-mail dispatch and security services.


Server log files

When you visit our website or use its services, the device with which you access the page automatically transmits log data (connection data) to our server. The corresponding information consists of:

- Type and version of the browser you are using,

- type and version of the operating system you are using,

- Referrer URL of the page from which you accessed our website,

- Date and time you accessed our website,

- name of the sub-pages you accessed,

- IP address of your computer system,

- the amount of data transferred in each case.

The data collected is used exclusively for statistical evaluations for the purpose of the operation, security and optimisation of the offer. For security reasons, however, we reserve the right to subsequently check the log data if there is a justified suspicion of unlawful use on the basis of concrete indications. The data will not be stored longer than necessary for this purpose. This collection is based on our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f EU DS-GVO.



We use so-called cookies in some areas of the website in order to recognise visitors' preferences and to be able to design the website optimally and attractively accordingly. This enables easier navigation and a high degree of user-friendliness of the website. The processing through cookies represents a legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f EU DS-GVO (optimisation and economic operation of our online offer). 

Cookies are small text files that are automatically created by your browser and stored on your terminal device when you visit our website. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses. Most of the cookies we use are deleted again at the end of the browser session (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your computer and enable us to recognise your computer the next time you visit us (so-called permanent or cross-session cookies). Thanks to these files, it is possible, for example, for you to receive information on the site that is specifically tailored to your interests.

You can set your browser to inform you about the placement of cookies. This makes the use of cookies transparent for you. If you completely exclude the use of cookies, you may not be able to use certain functions of this website.


Security of your data

We use technical and organisational security measures to adequately protect the data you provide against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. We therefore use SSL encryption for the transmission of confidential content, such as enquiries that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties. Our security measures are further developed according to the state of the art.



2.2 Contacting us

If you contact us (e.g. via contact form, e-mail, telephone, social media), your personal data will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and any associated follow-up enquiries in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. b EU DS-GVO (in the context of pre-contractual measures) or in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f EU DS-GVO (general enquiries). We do not pass on this data without your respective consent.

The data you provide will remain with us until you request us to delete it, object to its storage or the purpose for storing the data ceases to apply (i.e. after we have completed processing your enquiry), provided this does not conflict with any statutory retention obligations.


2.3 Analysis tools

The analysis measures listed below and used by us are carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU DS-GVO (consent). With the use of these analysis measures, we want to ensure a demand-oriented design and the continuous optimisation of our website. By means of the analysis tools, we record the use of our website pseudonymously and evaluate it for the purpose of optimising our offer.

You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future.

We use the map service Google Maps on our website to display maps. Google Maps is operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4 Ireland.

Google Web Fonts

This website uses so-called web fonts for the uniform display of fonts. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4 Ireland. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.

For this purpose, the browser you are using must connect to Google's servers. This informs Google that our website has been accessed via your IP address. Google Web Fonts are used in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font will be used by your computer.

Further information on Google Web Fonts can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq  and in Google's privacy policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/ .


Links to third-party websites

On the basis of our legitimate interest, it may happen that links to other providers, which complement our offer, are integrated within this online offer. When you access websites linked to this website, you may be asked again for information such as your name, IP address, browser properties, etc. This is not intended to regulate the use of this website. This privacy policy does not regulate the collection, disclosure or handling of personal data by third parties. In this context, please note the specific data protection declarations of the individual third-party providers and service providers whose links we include on our website.


2.5 Minors

As a matter of principle, our online offer is directed at persons of legal age. Personal information of persons who have not yet reached the age of 16 may only be made available to us if the express consent of the parent or guardian has been obtained (Art. 8 EU Data Protection Regulation). Processing without the consent of the parent or guardian is not permitted. We therefore reserve the right to delete all data relating to minors if we do not have the consent of a parent or guardian.
