We do not use your data to draw conclusions about your person. Information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us, if necessary, in order to optimize our Internet presence and the technology behind it.

Provision is required or necessary
The provision of the aforementioned personal data is not required by law or contract. Without the IP address, however, the service and functionality of our website cannot be guaranteed. In addition, individual services may not be available or may be restricted. For this reason an objection is excluded.


The nature and purpose of processing
Like many other websites, we also use so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files that are stored on your end device (laptop, tablet, smartphone or similar devices) when you visit our website.

This provides us with certain data such as IP address, browser used and operating system.

Cookies cannot be used to start programs or transfer viruses to a computer. We can use the information contained in cookies to make navigation easier for you and to enable our web pages to be displayed correctly.

Under no circumstances will the data we collect be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.

Of course you can also view our website without cookies. Internet browsers are regularly set to accept cookies. In general, you can deactivate the use of cookies at any time via the settings of your browser. Please use the help functions of your Internet browser to find out how to change these settings. Please note that individual functions of our website may not work if you have deactivated the use of cookies.

Subscribers can also be informed by e-mail about circumstances relevant to the service or registration (e.g. changes to the newsletter offer or technical conditions).

For an effective registration we need a valid e-mail address. To verify that a registration is actually made by the owner of an e-mail address, we use the "double opt-in" procedure. For this purpose, we log the ordering of the newsletter, the sending of a confirmation e-mail and the receipt of the answer requested herewith. Further data is not collected. The data will be used exclusively for sending the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.

On the basis of your expressly given consent (Art. 6, Para. 1, Sent. a GDPR), we will regularly send you our newsletter or comparable information by e-mail to your specified e-mail address.

Use of Matomo

The nature and purpose of processing

This website uses Matomo (formerly Piwik), an open source software for statistical analysis of visitor access. The supplier of the Matomo software is InnoCraft Ltd, 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand. Matomo uses so-called cookies, i.e. text files which are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website is stored on a server in Germany. The IP address is anonymized immediately after processing and before it is saved. You have the possibility of preventing the installation of cookies by changing the settings of your browser software. We would like to point out that with the appropriate settings, not all functions of this website may be available. You can decide whether a unique web analysis cookie may be stored in your browser to enable the website operator to collect and analyze various statistical data. For more information about the privacy settings of the Matomo software, please follow this link:

You have the option of terminating the analysis of your usage behaviour by means of the so-called opt-out. By confirming the link a cookie is stored on your end device via your Internet browser, which prevents further analysis. Please note, however, that if you delete the cookies stored on your terminal device, you will have to click on the above link again.

Legal basis
Processing of the data is based on the consent of the user (Art. 6, Para. 1, Sent. a GDPR).

Recipients of the data may be contract processors.

Storage duration
The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required for our recording purposes. In our case, the following period of time is used: 180 days

Provision is required or necessary
The provision of your personal data is voluntary, solely based on your consent. If you prevent access, this may result in functional restrictions on the website.

Revocation of consent
You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser; however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

With the help of the tracking tool Matomo the behaviour of the visitors of the website can be evaluated and the interests can be analyzed. For this purpose, we create a pseudonymous user profile.

Use of script libraries (Google Web Fonts)

The nature and purpose of processing
In order to display our content correctly in a graphically appealing way across browsers, we use "Google Web Fonts" from Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter "Google") to display fonts on this website. The privacy policy of the library operator Google can be found here:

Legal basis
The legal basis for the integration of Google Web Fonts and the associated data transfer to Google is done by your consent (Art. 6, Para. 1, Sent. a GDPR).

The invoking of script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library operator. It is theoretically possible - although currently it is also unclear whether and for what purposes - that the operator collects data from Google in this case.

Storage duration

We do not collect personal data through the integration of Google Web Fonts. For more information about Google Web Fonts, please visit and Google's Privacy Policy:

Third country transfer

Google processes your data in the USA and has subjected itself to the EU_US Privacy Shield

Provision is required or necessary
The provision of personal data is not required by law or contract. However, it may not be possible to display the content correctly using standard fonts.

Revocation of consent
The JavaScript programming language is regularly used to display the content. You can therefore object to the processing of data by deactivating the execution of JavaScript in your browser or by installing a JavaScript blocker. Please note that this may result in functional restrictions on the website.

Social plugins

The nature and purpose of processing
We offer you the possibility of using so-called "social media buttons" on our website. To protect your data, we rely on the "Shariff" solution for implementation. This means that these buttons are integrated on the website merely as a graphic, which contains a link to the corresponding website of the button provider. By clicking on the graphic you will be forwarded to the services of the respective provider. Only then will your data be sent to the respective providers. If you do not click on the graphic, there will be no exchange between you and the providers of the social media buttons. Information about the collection and use of your data in social networks can be found in the respective terms of use of the respective providers. More information about the Shariff solution can be found here:

We have integrated the social media buttons of the following networks on our website:
