The concrete reasons for processing the data, the data involved, and the legal basis for processing data are specified in the following list:
We record your visits to our website. We only collect data that your browser transmits to our server (so-called server log files). During the process, the following data is processed: the name of the respective website being accessed, date and time it was accessed, the quantity of data being transferred, the browser type and version being used, the operating system you are using, the referrer URL (the site previously visited), your IP address (if applicable: in anonymized form) and the enquiring provider.

The data will not be passed on or used in any other way. However, we reserve the right to check the server log files subsequently, if there are any concrete indications of illegal use.
If and when you contact us by email, your information, e.g. surname, first name, email address, and message will be processed solely for the purpose of responding to your request or for establishing contact and for the associated technical administration. This data is only processed by us on the basis of your consent in accordance with article 6 para 1 a) of the GDPR.
To make your visit to our website more attractive and to enable you to use certain functions on the website, we use so-called cookies on different pages. Cookies are small text files which are saved on your terminal device. Some of the cookies that we use will be deleted at the end of your browser sitting, in other words after you close your browser (so-called sitting cookies). Other cookies will remain on your terminal device and they allow us or our partner companies to recognize your browser the next time you visit the website (persistent cookies).
You can delete all of the cookies saved on your computer and most browsers can be configured in such a way that cookies are prevented from being saved. You can find out more information on how to do this here: AllAboutCookies.org. In this case, you will probably have to manually select some settings every time you visit a website and you will have to accept that some functions will be impaired.
This website uses the web analysis service described below from Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA („Google“). We will share your data with Google when we use this service. For this reason, please observe the notice on the use of data by Google within the Google partner network, which is available at: www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners.
Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies“, text files that are stored on your computer and allow an analysis to be performed of your website usage. The information generated by the cookie about your usage of this website (including your IP address), is transferred to a Google server in the US and stored there. Google uses the stored information to evaluate your usage of the website, to compile reports about activities performed on the website for the website operator and in order to provide further services related to website and internet usage.
Google also transfers this information to third parties when necessary, for example if it is legally required or in the case that third parties are commissioned by Google to process this data. Google never links your IP address to other Google data. You can prevent installation of the cookies by adjusting an appropriate setting in your browser software; however, we would like to advise you that you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent in this case. By using this website, you agree for the data recorded on you by Google in the aforementioned manner to be processed and agree to the aforementioned purpose.
You can stop your data from being collected in future at any time by using the deactivation add-on for Google Analytics browsers at tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

We would like to advise you that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. This means IP addresses are only stored in an anonymous form; any direct reference to a specific person in relation to the stored data is therefore excluded.
Third parties, including Google, use the stored cookies to place advertisements on the basis of your previous visits to this website.
If you do not wish for this to happen, you can deactivate this via the ad settings manager www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/?hl=en.

If and when statutory retention periods must be observed, e.g. under commercial trade or tax law, it may be necessary to retain certain data for up to 10 years.
Upon request, you can receive information about the personal data that we have saved about you at any time free of charge.
If you no longer agree with your personal data being saved or your information is not correct, we will arrange for your data to be deleted or blocked upon receiving appropriate notification thereof, or we will make the necessary corrections (provided this is possible under applicable laws). The same shall apply if we should only process your data in a more restrictive manner in the future.
We will save your data in a transferable manner so that the data can also be transmitted to another company upon your request.
Please contact us if you have questions about the processing of your personal data; if you require the disclosure of or
would like to correct, block, or delete your data; if you would like to object to the use of your data; or if you would like

Disclosure, erasure, blocking, correction, or transfer of this data to another company is only possible if you provide us with additional information that allows us to identify the data.
You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. Data for billing and accounting purposes are not affected
by cancellation/revocation or deletion. Your revocation does not affect the legality of the previous processing.
