Safety and protection of your personal information
Ensuring the confidentiality of the personal information provided by you and safeguarding it against unauthorized access is of the utmost importance to us. That is why we take great care and apply the latest safety standards to protect your personal data.
As a company under private law, we are subject to the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and to the provisions of the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz, BDSG). We have taken technical and organizational measures to ensure that both we and our external service providers comply with all relevant data protection regulations.


This Data Privacy Statement uses the terms defined by the European regulator at the time the GDPR was issued.

Information on the collection of personal data
(1) Below we will inform you about the personal data we collect when you use our website. Personal data may include your name, address, email addresses and user behavior.
(2) When you contact us via email, we will save the information provided by you (your email address, and possibly your name and telephone number) to help us answer your questions. We will delete this information once its storage is no longer necessary; where we are legally obliged to store the information, we will restrict processing.

Collection of personal data during your use of our website
If you use our website merely for information purposes, i.e. if you do not register with us or otherwise provide information, we will only collect the personal data transmitted by your browser to our server. If you want to view our website, we will collect the following data, which we need for technical reasons, to display our website and ensure its stability and security (the legal basis is Art. 6 Par. 1 Cl. 1(f) GDPR):

  • IP address
  • Date and time of the access request
  • Time zone difference from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
  • Content of the access request (specific page)
  • Access status / HTTP status code
  • Transmitted data volume
  • Website from which the access request originated
  • Browser
  • Operating system and its user interface
  • Language and version of the browser software.

Use of cookies
(1) In addition to the aforementioned data, our website uses cookies – small text files that are associated with your browser and saved on your hard drive. They collect certain information which is then transmitted back to our website. Cookies cannot execute programs or transmit viruses to your computer. Their purpose is to make our website more user-friendly and effective.
(2) This website uses the following types of cookies, whose scope and function are explained below:

  • Transient cookies (see a.)
  • Persistent cookies (see b.)

a. Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. One common type of transient cookies are session cookies. These cookies store a session ID that is used to associate requests transmitted by your browser with a given session. This allows us to recognize your computer when you return to our website. Session cookies are deleted once you log off our website or close your browser.
b. Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a certain time period, which may vary from one cookie type to the next. You can delete these cookies anytime in your browser’s security settings.
c. You can configure your browser settings to block third-party cookies or all cookies. As the name suggests, third-party cookies are not set by the website you are currently visiting, but by a third party. Please note that if you deactivate cookies, you may not be able to use all functions of our website.
d. We use cookies to identify you during subsequent visits if you have created an account with us. Otherwise you would have to log in again every time you visit our website.
e. The flash cookies we use are not collected by your browser, but by your flash plug-in. We also use HTML5 storage objects that are placed on your terminal device. These objects store the required information independently of your browser and do not have an automatic expiration date. If you want to block the processing of flash cookies, you need to install an appropriate add-on, e.g. “Better Privacy” for Mozilla Firefox (https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/betterprivacy/) or the Adobe flash killer cookie for Google Chrome. You can block the use of HTML5 storage objects by activating your browser’s private mode. In addition, you should manually delete your cookies and browsing history at regular intervals.
