In accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, this data is stored by us for reasons of technical security, to defend against cyber attacks on our servers and to protect your personal data and that of other visitors. By shortening the IP addresses after seven calendar days at the latest, this data is then automat­ically anonymized by our backend and stored indefi­nitely for statistical analysis. A personal reference based on this data can then no longer be established.

We use cookies on our website at Cookies are text files with a low data volume that are generated when you visit our website and stored locally on your terminal device. We need these cookies to improve the user-friend­liness of our website, to temporarily store your preferences, such as your language selection, and to increase the security of our website. Cookies are automat­ically generated by our server when you visit our website and are saved locally on your data storage by your browser. Your browser can then access them as needed and change their content.

We primarily use so-called session cookies on our website, which are normally automat­ically deleted by your browser after your visit as soon as their validity period - usually six months - is exceeded. However, you can also delete these cookies yourself at any time. This can be done either via the security settings of your browser or manually by deleting these files from the corresponding folders in your file system.

Internet browsers are normally set to automat­ically accept cookies after the instal­lation process. You can, of course, change this preselection at any time, restrict the use of cookies or switch them off completely.

Please note, however, that after deleting our cookies or by rejecting their use, you will no longer be able to visit our Internet pages to their full extent and only with a reduction in user-friend­liness.

Secure transfer of your data

We take the security of your personal data very seriously and therefore only use security mechanisms of the highest quality when operating our web and mail servers. Our security measures are developed by security experts according to the current state of the art, reviewed at regular intervals and adapted to new standards and trends.

The exchange of your personal data to and from our web server as well as to and from our mail servers is encrypted to protect against data loss and data theft. For our web and mail server, we have chosen a TLS certificate from the provider Thawte (DigiCert Inc.) with PKCS #1 SHA-256 and RSA encryption algorithm at domain level, which can be classified as extremely secure. You can check this certificate and its validity at any time via your web browser. An automatic check is performed by most web browsers every time you visit a page and successful encryption is usually indicated by a green closed padlock in the URL bar. We use this TLS encryption both in the frontend (visitor display) and in the backend (adminis­tration interface) of our web server to also prevent data loss and data theft during the adminis­tration and content maintenance of our website.

Alterna­tively, of course, you always have the option of foregoing data exchange with us in digital form and choosing analog communi­cation channels (e.g., postal dispatch of data and information).

Storage duration

We store your personal data without your individual consent exclusively for the period of time required to achieve the respective processing purpose or as specified by statutory retention periods. A data transfer of your personal data to third parties will only take place if this is required by law or if this is necessary within the scope of the respective processing purpose to fulfill your request or order. If an exchange of data should be necessary within the scope of these requirements, this exchange will always be carried out in compliance with the legal requirements and obligations with the highest possible security and in compliance with the principle of data economy and data avoidance only with the data actually required for the processing process.

Examples of unavoidable data transfer to third parties:

  • Government agencies and institutions (such as the tax office)
  • External data protection officers (generally only with contractually secured data protection clause)
  • External quality management representatives (in principle only with contractually secured data protection clause)

User profiles / web tracking methods

In order to protect your personal data as effectively as possible, we completely refrain from using any form of tracking, analysis and statistics programs, services and tools on our website. An exchange of your data with external service providers for statistical evaluation does not take place.

Social network plugins

To protect your personal data as effectively as possible, we do not use any form of social network plug-ins on our website. An exchange of your data with external service providers for statistical evaluation does not take place. If you would like to follow our accounts on social media, you will find simple links to these accounts at the bottom of all our pages. After clicking on these links, our user profile usually opens directly in the respective network and you are free to follow it via your own account in the same network. Of course, we welcome any contact and networking with you outside of our own website in the social networks. For the use of these networks, however, the terms of use and data protection declarations published by the operators apply.

Links to other providers

Where our website contains links to the websites of other companies, e-mail addresses or telephone numbers, these are identified as such. You can also check each link before clicking by positioning the pointer of your mouse (desktop computer/laptop) or your finger or operating stylus (mobile devices/touchscreen/touchpad) over the link or by holding the link longer instead of clicking (hover behavior).

We would like to point out that we have no influence on the contents of linked external websites and cannot accept any guarantee or liability for these contents. The provider and operator is responsible for the content and data security of these linked pages. All external sites linked to our website have been checked and evaluated by us for possible legal violations, illegal content and data security within the scope of our possibilities before linking. Only after a positive evaluation have these links then been included on our pages. However, we cannot reasonably be expected to permanently monitor and control the content of the linked pages. However, we remove such external links immediately after becoming aware of any legal violations and violations of data protection laws. If you become aware of such violations, please send us this information to

Data subject rights

Based on the statutory requirements, you have the right to free information about the use and content of the personal data stored by us from you and about you. Furthermore, you have the right to correction, restriction of data collection and processing as well as deletion of your data, provided that this does not conflict with any legally prescribed retention periods.

In addition, based on the current legal situation, you have the right to a general objection to data processing, the right to data transfer or to file a complaint with the competent supervisory authority for data protection.

You can, of course, revoke any consent given to us for data processing at any time without giving reasons for the future after asserting this right.

If we process your data to protect legitimate interests, you may object to this processing on personal grounds at any time. Unless there are demonstrably compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, the processing is required by law or the processing is for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims, we will then no longer process your data in the future after receipt of the objection and completion of the review of the legal claim.
