Personal data is only collected on this website to the extent technically necessary. Under no circumstances will the collected data be sold or passed on to third parties for other reasons.

As new technologies and the continuous development of this website may result in changes to this privacy policy, we recommend that you read the privacy policy again at regular intervals.

The following declaration gives you an overview of how we guarantee this protection and what kind of data is collected for what purpose.

Collection and processing of personal data

The website operator collects, uses and passes on your personal data only if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of data.

Personal data includes all information which serves to determine your person and which can be traced back to you - such as your name, e-mail address and telephone number.

You can also visit this website without providing any personal information. However, to improve our online offer, we store (without personal reference) your access data to this website. These access data include, for example, the file you requested or the name of your Internet provider. By making the data anonymous, it is not possible to draw conclusions about your person.


Google Analytics

We use a service called "Google Analytics" to collect information about the use of our website. "Google Analytics" is a service of Google Inc. (Google), which generates detailed statistics about online traffic and sources of a website and measures Adword-Conversions and sales. Google Analytics uses "cookies" that are stored on your computer to analyze how users use our website. For example, Google Analytics collects information about how often users visit our website, which pages they visit and which other websites they visited before visiting this website. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google- Server in the USA and stored there.

We only use the information we receive from Google Analytics to improve our website. Google Analytics only records the IP address assigned to you on the day you visit this website, but does not store your name or any other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personal data. A cookie, which is stored in your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this website, may only be used by Google. Google's use of the information collected in this way is subject to the Google Analytics Terms of Use, Google's Privacy Policy and applicable EU laws and regulations. Google LLC complies with European privacy laws and is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement:

IP anonymization is used on this website. The IP address of the users is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area and in the other contracting states of the agreement. Only in individual cases is the IP address initially transferred in full to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Through this shortening, the personal reference of your IP address is omitted. The user's IP address transmitted by the browser is not combined with other data stored by Google.

Within the framework of the agreement on commissioned data, which we have concluded as website operator with Google Inc., the latter uses the information collected to create an evaluation of website use and website activity and provides services associated with Internet use.

The data collected by Google on our behalf is used to evaluate the use of our online offer by individual users, e.g. to create reports on the activity on the website in order to improve our online offer.

You have the option of preventing the storage of cookies on your device by making the appropriate settings in your browser. It cannot be guaranteed that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions if your browser does not allow cookies.

Furthermore, you can use a browser plugin to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being sent to Google Inc. and used by Google Inc. The following link will take you to the corresponding plugin:

Alternatively, by clicking on this link (IMPORTANT: insert opt-out link) you prevent Google Analytics from collecting data about you within this website. By clicking on the link above, you download an "opt-out cookie". Your browser must therefore allow the storage of cookies for this purpose. If you delete your cookies regularly, you will need to click on the link again each time you visit this website.
