Data Protection

The operator/publisher of these pages (see Legal Notice) takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. We handle your personal data confidentially and in compliance with the legal data protection requirements and this Privacy Policy.

You can usually use our website without providing any personal data about yourself. If personal data is collected on our website (e.g. name, postal address or e-mail addresses), it takes place on a voluntary basis wherever possible. We do not pass this data on to third parties without your express consent and it only serves for responding to your enquiries.

We would like to point out that transferring data over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can be vulnerable to security gaps. It is impossible to completely protect data against unauthorised access by third parties.

We use cookies to make our offering more user-friendly, effective and safe. Cookies are made up of small text files, which are stored on your computer and used by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are what are referred to as ‘session cookies’. They are automatically deleted once you leave our website. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser the next time you visit our website.

You can set your browser to inform you that cookies are being used. You can also enable cookies in individual cases only, enable the acceptance of cookies in specific cases or generally rule out the use of cookies altogether and automatically delete them when you close your browser. If you disable cookies, it may limit your ability to use this website to its full extent.

The provider of this website automatically collects and stores information in what are referred to as server log files that your browser sends us automatically. This information includes:

  • Browser type/Browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referring URL
  • The host name of the computer accessing our website
  • The time of the server request

It is impossible to associate the data that is logged with any one person. Nor is it merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to perform a retrospective analysis of this data if we become aware of specific evidence of its unlawful use.

If you use our contact form to send us enquiries, we store the information you provide in this form along with the contact details you enter into it to precipitate processing your enquiry and to handle any follow-up questions. We do not disclose this information without your consent.

SSL Encryption

This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of sensitive content, such as the requests you send to us as the site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection when you change the address line in your browser from “http://” to “https://” by the lock icon in the address bar.

The operator of this website reserves the express right to take legal action in the event that unsolicited promotional information, such as spam emails, is sent out.

The reason why we do not use Facebook plugins

This website does not have plugins from the social network Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA integrated into it. On websites in general, you can recognise the Facebook plugin by the Facebook logo or ‘Like’ button.

Background: when you visit websites that use the ‘Like’ button from Facebook, the plugin establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. This informs Facebook that you have visited a website with your IP address. If you are logged into Facebook in another window simultaneously, it means that a link can be established based on your IP address and the plug-ins loaded by Facebook. By clicking on the Facebook “Like” button while you are logged into your Facebook account, you can link the contents of the website in question to your Facebook profile. This allows Facebook to associate your visit to the website with your Facebook account. We would like to point out that website providers have no knowledge or information about how Facebook uses this data. For more information, please see the privacy policy of Facebook at: Log out of your Facebook account first if you want to prevent Facebook associating your visit to websites with your Facebook account. You can find an overview of Facebook plugins here:

Use of Google Maps

On our website, we use the component “Google Maps” from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre  Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, in the following referred to as “Google”.

Each time the component “Google Maps” is called up, Google sets a cookie to process user settings and data when you view the page that has the Google Maps component integrated into it. This cookie is not usually deleted when you close your browser but will expire after a certain period of time unless you delete it manually.

If you disagree with your data being processed, you can disable the “Google Maps” service, thus preventing the transmission of data to Google. To do so, disable the Java Script feature in your browser. We would like to point out, however, that this will partially or entirely limit your ability to use “Google Maps” on this website.

Use of “Google Maps” and information obtained through “Google Maps” is subject to Google’s Terms of Use:

and the additional terms and conditions for “Google Maps”
