We process your data exclusively on the basis of the legal regulations (DSGVO, TKG 2003). In this data protection declaration we inform you about the most important data processing aspects on our website.

Server Data

For technical reasons, in particular to ensure a secure and stable Internet presence, data is transmitted to us or to our web space provider via your Internet browser. With these so-called server log files, the type and version of your Internet browser, the operating system, the website from which you switched to our Internet presence (referrer URL), the website(s) of our Internet presence that you visit, the date and time of the respective access, as well as the IP address of the Internet connection from which our Internet presence is used, are collected.

The data collected in this way will be temporarily stored, but not together with your other data.

This data is stored on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the improvement, stability, functionality, and security of our Internet presence.

If you contact us via contact form or via e-mail on the website, the data you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing your inquiry and possible follow-up questions.

By contacting us, you consent that we use your data to inform you about our products or services. If you do not wish to receive any further information from us, you can object to this at any time. A text message to the above mentioned contact data (e.g., e-mail) is sufficient for this.


Our website uses so-called cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your mobile device using the browser. They do not cause any damage.

We use cookies to make our website user-friendly. Some cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. They enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit us.

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics on our website. This is a web analysis service of Google Inc. For the European area, the company Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services (“Google”).

The Google Analytics service is used to analyze the usage behavior of our website. The legal basis is art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis, optimization, and efficient operation of our Internet presence.

Usage and user-related information, such as IP address, location, time or frequency of the visit to our website, are transmitted and stored to Google. However, we use Google Analytics with the so-called anonymization function. With this function Google shortens the IP address already within the EU or the EEA.

The data collected in this way is in turn used by Google to provide us with an evaluation of the visit to our website and the usage activities there. This data can also be used for providing other services related to the use of our Internet presence and the use of the Internet.

Google states that it will not connect your IP address to other data. In addition, Google provides you with further data protection information at, e.g., also about the possibilities of preventing the use of data.
In addition, Google offers a so-called deactivation add-on at along with further information. This add-on can be installed with the most popular Internet browsers and offers you further control over the data that Google collects when you visit our website.

The add-on informs Google Analytics’ JavaScript (ga.js) that information about visits to our website should not be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, this does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analysis services.

Google Fonts

In our website we may use Google Fonts to display external fonts. This is a service of Google Inc. For the European area, the company Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services (“Google”)..

To enable the display of certain fonts on our website, a connection to Google is established when our website is accessed.

The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the optimization and efficient operation of our Internet presence.

By connecting to Google when you visit our website, Google can determine from which website your request was sent and to which IP address the display of the font is to be transmitted.

Google offers further information at  and, in particular on the possibilities of preventing the use of data.


To protect your requests via Internet form, we use the service reCAPTCHA of the company Google Inc (Google). The query is used to distinguish whether the input is made by a human or abusive by automated, machine processing. The query includes the transmission of the IP address and possibly other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google. For this purpose, your input is transmitted to Google and used there. However, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of this service. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of reCAPTCHA will not be merged with other data from Google. The deviating data protection provisions of Google apply to this data.
