  1. General information on data processing

This data protection information applies exclusively to the processing of personal data in connection with our website, which you   can access at  and (hereinafter “website”).

  1. Purposes, legal bases and duration of data processing

When you visit our website, we only process data in connection with your visit in such a way that it is not possible to directly determine who you are. In individual cases, however, identifiability, especially in connection with other information, cannot be completely ruled out, which is why the processing is pseudonymous.

  1. a) Necessary cookies

Cookies are small files that are stored on your data carrier and that save certain settings and data for exchange with our system via your browser. Cookies help us to design our website and make it easier for you to use it, for example by saving certain entries so that you do not have to repeat them over and over again. The legal basis for this data processing is therefore the contract for the use of our website, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR, as well as our legitimate interest, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

The so-called session cookies are automatically deleted. Otherwise, you can also delete the cookies yourself at any time in the security settings of your browser and configure your browser settings according to your wishes (e.g. accepting third-party cookies or rejecting all cookies). However, we would like to point out that you may then not be able to use all the functions of our website.

  1. b) Web Analysis

We use web analysis tools from other companies. With the help of so-called cookies, we can process information on the use of the website and thus gain insights into the use of our website (e.g. number of accesses, number of users). To protect your rights and interests, only pseudonymous data is used, which does not allow us to draw any direct conclusions about you. In particular, the IP address is only stored in abbreviated form. The legal basis for this data processing is therefore the legitimate interest in optimizing the application services, Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The term of the cookies is up to 24 months after the setting of the cookie.

You have the right to object to this processing at any time with effect for the future. To object to processing with the web analysis tool Google Analytics, please click here:

A corresponding cookie is set or a setting is saved on your end device that documents your objection. In the browser, the objection applies as long as you do not delete the cookie in the respective browser. If you make use of your right to object, we will no longer be able to establish any future connections between the cookie and your end device via the cookie. The data collected up to that point will then be anonymous.

  1. c) Processing of data with Google Fonts

External fonts, Google Fonts, are used on this website. Google Fonts is a service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). These web fonts are integrated by calling a server, usually a Google server in the USA. This transmits to the server which of our Internet pages you have visited. The IP address of the browser of the end device of the visitor to this website is also stored by Google. For more information, see Google’s privacy policy, which you can access here:

  1. d) Processing of data with Google Maps

On our website we use Google Maps (API) from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”). Google Maps is a web service for displaying interactive (land) maps in order to display geographical information visually to represent. Using this service will show you our location and make it easier to get there.

As soon as you call up those sub-pages in which the Google Maps map is integrated, information about your use of our website (such as your IP address) is transmitted to Google’s servers and stored there. This takes place regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether there is no user account. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not wish to be associated with your profile on Google, you must log out before activating the button. Google saves your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and evaluates them. Such an evaluation is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S.1 lit.f DSGVO on the basis of Google’s legitimate interests in the display of personalized advertising, market research and/or needs-based design of its website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google to exercise this right.

If you do not agree to the future transmission of your data to Google when using Google Maps, you also have the option of completely deactivating the Google Maps web service by switching off the JavaScript application in your browser. Google Maps and thus also the map display on this website cannot then be used.

You can view Google’s terms of use at  , the additional terms of use for Google Maps can be found at /de_US/help/terms_maps.html .

Detailed information on data protection in connection with the use of Google Maps can be found on the Google website (“Google Privacy Policy”): .

  1. Data processing for website security

When the website is called up, so-called log files are also stored on the server, which record access to and calls up to the website. In addition to the IP address, this also includes the page called up, information about the device and the software with which the page was called up and the so-called access provider through which our website was called up.

The legal basis is our legitimate interest in maintaining the availability and integrity of the website and detecting any weak points and attacks on the systems in accordance with Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The log files are saved daily in anonymous form and deleted after nine weeks at the latest.

  1. Email Contact

On our online offers you will find email links (mailto) that can be used for electronic contact. In this way, we meet, among other things, the legal requirement to enable rapid electronic contact with us. If you use this option, your details will be processed and automatically saved for the purpose of answering the request in accordance with Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR. We delete the requests if they are no longer necessary and no statutory archiving obligations apply.

  1. General information on data deletion
