Collection of General Data

When accessing our website, general information is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider and similar things. None of the collected information can be used to identify your person. This information is technically necessary to correctly deliver the requested contents of websites and is a mandatory requirement when using the internet. We evaluate anonymous information of this kind statistically to optimize our web presence and the technology behind it.


Just as many other websites, we also use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files which are transferred to the hard disk of your computer by a website server. Thus we automatically receive certain data such as IP address, browser used, operating system and your connection to the internet.

Cookies cannot be used to start programs or to transmit viruses to a computer. On the basis of the information contained in cookies, we are able to make navigation and the correct display of our websites easier for you.

On no account will data we collect be passed on to third parties nor will a link be established with personal data without your consent.

You may of course visit our website without cookies. Internet browsers are usually configured to accept cookies. You may deactivate the use of cookies any time via the settings of your browser. Please use the help functions of your internet browser to learn how to change these settings. Please know that certain functions of our website may not work, if you deactivate the use of cookies.

SSL Encryption

In order to protect your data during transmission, we use state of the art encryption processes such as SSL via HTTPS.

Contact Form

If you contact us via email or contact form, the information you provide will be stored for processing your request and for possible follow-up questions.

Data Removal or Data Locking

We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We store your personal data only to the extent necessary for the named purposes or for the various retention periods established by the legislator. After the settlement of the specific purpose or the expiration of these deadlines, the respective data will be routinely removed or locked in accordance with the legal regulations.

The Use of Adobe Typekit

We use Adobe Typekit for the visual design of our website. Typekit is a service of Adobe Systems Ireland Ltd. which gives us access to a font library. In order to integrate the fonts used by us, your browser has to set up a connection to an Adobe server in the USA and download the font needed for our website. Adobe thus receives the information that our website was visited from your IP address. You will find further information on Adobe Typekit here in the Adobe data protection provisions:


The Use of Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps API to visually present geographic information. When using Google Maps, Google also collects processes and uses data on visitors’ use of the map functions. You will find further information on data processing by Google in the Google data protection provisions. In their data protection center you may also change your personal data protection settings. Here you will find detailed instructions on data management in connection with Google products.


Your Rights of Access, Correction, Locking, Removal and Contradiction

You have the right to receive information on your personal data stored with us at any time. You also have the right to correct, lock or request removal of your personal data, apart from the mandatory data storage for business processes. Please be so kind as to contact our data protection officer. You will find the contact data at the bottom of the page.

In order to be able to lock data at all times, these data have to be stored in a lock file for control purposes. You may also request the data removal, as long as there is no legal archiving obligation. In case of such an obligation, we lock your data on demand.

You may make modifications or revoke your consent by notifying us with effect for the future.


Changes to our Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to occasionally adjust this privacy statement so that it continually meets the current legal requirements or in order to incorporate changes to our services into the privacy statement, e.g. when introducing new services. The new privacy statement then applies for your renewed visit.
