The website operator takes your privacy very seriously and treats your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory provisions. Since changes may be made to this data protection declaration due to new technologies and the constant further development of this website, we recommend that you read through the data protection declaration again at regular intervals.
For definitions of the terms used (e.g. “personal data” or “processing”), please refer to Art. 4 of the GDPR.
We, the website operator or page provider, collect data about accesses to the website based on our legitimate interest (see Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO) and store them as “server log files” on the server of the website. The following data is logged in this way:
- Visited website
- Time at the time of access
- Amount of data sent in bytes
- Source/reference from which you arrived at the page
- Browser used
- Operating system used
- IP address used
The server log files are stored for a maximum of 7 days and then deleted. The storage of data is for security reasons, for example, to clarify cases of abuse. If data must be retained for evidentiary reasons, they are exempt from deletion until the incident has been definitively clarified.
Reach measurement & Cookies
If you do not want cookies to be stored on your terminal device for range measurement, you can object to the use of these files here:

- Cookie deactivation page of US website: http://optout.aboutads.info/?c=2#!/

Collection and processing of personal data
The website operator collects, uses and discloses your personal data only if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of such data.
Personal data includes all information that can be used to determine your person and which can be traced back to you – for example, your name, e-mail address and telephone number.
You can also visit this website without providing any personal information. However, in order to improve our online offering, we store (without personal reference) your access data to this website. This access data includes, for example, the file you requested or the name of your Internet provider. By anonymizing the data, it is not possible to draw conclusions about your person.
How to handle contact data
If you contact us as the website operator through the contact options offered, your details will be stored so that they can be used to process and respond to your request. Without your consent, this data will not be disclosed to third parties.
This website uses due to our legitimate interests in optimizing and analyzing our online offer in the sense of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO the service “Google Analytics”, which is provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). The service (Google Analytics) uses “cookies” – text files that are stored on your terminal device. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
Google LLC complies with European data protection law and is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active
On this website the IP anonymization takes effect. The IP address of the user is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area and in the other contracting states of the agreement. Only in individual cases is the IP address initially transmitted unabbreviated to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. This shortening eliminates the personal reference of your IP address. The IP address of the user transmitted by the browser is not combined with other data stored by Google.
Under the terms of the commissioned data agreement, which we as website operators have concluded with Google Inc., the latter uses the information collected to create an evaluation of website use and website activity and provides services associated with Internet use.
The data collected by Google on our behalf is used to evaluate the use of our online offering by individual users, for example, to create reports on website activity in order to improve our online offering.
You have the option of preventing cookies from being stored on your device by making the appropriate settings in your browser. It is not guaranteed that you can 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 and used by Google Inc. The following link will take you to the appropriate plugin: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
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 above link, you will download an “opt-out cookie”. Your browser must therefore generally allow the storage of cookies for this purpose. If you delete your cookies regularly, you will need to click on the link again each time you visit this website.

The website operator offers you a newsletter in which he informs you about current events and offers. If you wish to subscribe to the newsletter, you must provide a valid email address. If you subscribe to the newsletter, you agree to receive the newsletter and the explained procedures.
Revocation and cancellation: You can revoke your consent to receive the newsletter at any time and thus cancel the newsletter subscription.

Rights of the user
As a user, you have the right to request free information about what personal data has been stored about you.

If you believe that your data has been processed unlawfully, you may lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority.
Deletion of data
Unless your request conflicts with a legal obligation to retain data (e.g. data retention), you have a right to have your data deleted. Data stored by us will be deleted if it is no longer required for its intended purpose and there are no legal retention periods. If deletion cannot be carried out because the data is required for permissible legal purposes, data processing will be restricted. In this case, the data will be blocked and will not be processed for other purposes.
