You can recog­nize an encryp­ted con­nec­tion by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from http:// to https:// and by the lock sym­bol in your browser line. If SSL or TLS encryp­tion is activ­ated, the data you trans­mit to us can­not be read by third parties.

    • Time at the time of access
    • quant­ity of data sent in bytes
    • Source/reference from which you came to the page
    • browser used
    • Oper­at­ing sys­tem used

This site uses cook­ies. These are small text files that are stored on your mobile device. Your browser accesses these files. The use of cook­ies increases the user-friend­li­ness and secur­ity of this web­site. Com­mon browsers offer the set­ting option not to accept cook­ies. Note: There is no guar­an­tee that you will be able to access all func­tions of this web­site without restric­tions if you make the appro­pri­ate set­tings. The web­sites partly use so-called cook­ies. Cook­ies do not cause any dam­age to your com­puter and do not con­tain any vir­uses. Cook­ies serve to make our web­site more user-friendly, effect­ive and secure. Cook­ies are small text files that are stored on your com­puter and saved by your browser. Most of the cook­ies we use are so-called “ses­sion cook­ies”. They are auto­mat­ic­ally deleted at the end of your visit. Other cook­ies remain stored on your ter­min­al until you delete them. These cook­ies enable us to recog­nize your browser the next time you visit our web­site.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the set­ting of cook­ies and only allow cook­ies in indi­vidu­al cases, exclude the accept­ance of cook­ies for cer­tain cases or in gen­er­al and activ­ate the auto­mat­ic dele­tion of cook­ies when clos­ing the browser. When cook­ies are deac­tiv­ated, the func­tion­al­ity of this web­site may be lim­ited. cook­ies required to per­form the elec­tron­ic com­mu­nic­a­tion pro­cess or to provide cer­tain func­tions you desire (e.g. shop­ping bas­ket func­tion) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The web­site oper­at­or has a legit­im­ate interest in the stor­age of cook­ies for tech­nic­ally error-free and optim­ized pro­vi­sion of his ser­vices. As far as other cook­ies (e.g. cook­ies for the ana­lys­is of your surf­ing beha­viour) are stored, these will be treated sep­ar­ately in this data pro­tec­tion declar­a­tion.

Handling of personal data

The web­site oper­at­or only col­lects, uses and passes on your per­son­al data if this is per­mit­ted by law or if you con­sent to the col­lec­tion of data. Per­son­al inform­a­tion is any inform­a­tion that is used to identi­fy you and which can be traced back to you, such as your name, e-mail address and tele­phone num­ber.

Handling contact data

If you con­tact the web­site oper­at­or through the con­tact options offered, your details will be stored so that they can be used to pro­cess and answer your request. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your con­sent.

Contradiction against commercial mails

The use of pub­lished postal addresses, tele­phone or fax num­bers and email addresses for mar­ket­ing pur­poses is pro­hib­ited, offend­ers send­ing unwanted spam mes­sages will be pun­ished. The oper­at­ors of these pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unso­li­cited advert­ising inform­a­tion, such as spam e-mails.

Google Analytics

This web­site uses the ser­vice “Google Ana­lyt­ics”, which is provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphi­theatre Park­way Moun­tain View, CA 94043, USA) for ana­lys­is of web­site usage by users. The ser­vice uses “cook­ies” – text files which are stored on your ter­min­al. The inform­a­tion col­lec­ted by the cook­ies is usu­ally sent to a Google serv­er in the USA and stored there.

IP anonym­iz­a­tion is used on this web­site. The IP address of users with­in the mem­ber states of the EU and the European Eco­nom­ic Area will be reduced. This reduc­tion elim­in­ates the per­son­al ref­er­ence to your IP address. As part of the con­tract data agree­ment con­cluded between the web­site oper­at­ors and Google Inc., Google uses the inform­a­tion col­lec­ted to eval­u­ate the use of the web­site and web­site activ­ity and to provide ser­vices related to Inter­net use.

You have the option of pre­vent­ing cook­ies from being stored on your device by mak­ing the appro­pri­ate set­tings in your browser. There is no guar­an­tee 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 plug-in 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 leads you to the cor­res­pond­ing plu­gin:

Altern­at­ively you can pre­vent Google Ana­lyt­ics from col­lect­ing data about you with­in this web­site by click­ing on this link (IMPORTANT: insert opt-out link). By click­ing on the link above you can down­load an “Opt-Out-Cook­ie”. Your browser must there­fore allow cook­ies to be stored. If you delete your cook­ies reg­u­larly, you will need to click on the link again each time you visit this web­site. Here you will find fur­ther inform­a­tion about data usage by Google Inc.:

Google reCAPTCHA

We use “Google reCAPTCHA” (here­in­after “reCAPTCHA”) on our web­sites. Pro­vider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphi­theatre Park­way, Moun­tain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). With reCAPTCHA it should be checked wheth­er the data entry on our web­sites (e.g. in a con­tact form) is done by a human being or by an auto­mated pro­gram. For this reCAPTCHA ana­lyzes the beha­vi­or of the web site vis­it­or on the basis dif­fer­ent char­ac­ter­ist­ics. This ana­lys­is starts auto­mat­ic­ally as soon as the web­site vis­it­or enters the web­site. For ana­lys­is reCAPTCHA eval­u­ates vari­ous inform­a­tion (e.g. IP address, time the web­site vis­it­or stays on the web­site or mouse move­ments made by the user). The data col­lec­ted dur­ing the ana­lys­is is for­war­ded to Google.

The reCAPTCHA ana­lyses run com­pletely in the back­ground. Vis­it­ors to the web­site are not informed that an ana­lys­is is tak­ing place. Data pro­cessing is car­ried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The web­site oper­at­or has a legit­im­ate interest in pro­tect­ing his web­site offers against abus­ive auto­mated spy­ing and SPAM.

Google Web Fonts

This page uses so-called web fonts provided by Google to uni­formly dis­play fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required Web fonts into your browser cache to dis­play texts and fonts cor­rectly. To do this, the browser you are using must con­nect to Google’s serv­ers. This gives Google know­ledge that our web­site has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uni­form and appeal­ing present­a­tion of our online offers. This rep­res­ents a legit­im­ate interest with­in the mean­ing of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

If your browser does not sup­port web fonts, a default font is used by your com­puter. Fur­ther inform­a­tion about Google Web Fonts can be found at and in Google’s pri­vacy policy:

Use of Google Maps

This web­site uses Google Maps API to dis­play geo­graph­ic­al inform­a­tion visu­ally. When using Google Maps, Google also col­lects, pro­cesses and uses data about the use of map func­tions by vis­it­ors. You can find more inform­a­tion about Google’s data pro­cessing in the Google Pri­vacy Policy.
You can also change your per­son­al data pro­tec­tion set­tings in the Data Pro­tec­tion Cen­ter.

User rights: information, correction and deletion

On your request, you as a user will receive free inform­a­tion about what per­son­al data has been stored about you. Unless your request con­flicts with a legal oblig­a­tion to store data (e.g. data reten­tion), you have a right to have incor­rect data cor­rec­ted and your per­son­al data blocked or deleted.

Changes to our privacy policy

We reserve the right to adapt this data pro­tec­tion declar­a­tion so that it always com­plies with cur­rent legal require­ments or to imple­ment changes to our ser­vices in the data pro­tec­tion declar­a­tion, e.g. when intro­du­cing new ser­vices. The new data pro­tec­tion declar­a­tion will then apply for your next visit.
