Unfortunately, it is in the nature of things that these statements sound very technical, but we have tried to make them as simple and clear as possible.
Automatic data storage
When you visit websites today, certain information is automatically generated and stored, including on this website. When you visit our website as you are doing now, our web server (computer on which this website is stored) automatically stores data such as
- the address (URL) of the called web page
- Browser and browser version
- the operating system usedThe address (URL) of the previously visited page (referrer URL)
- the host name and IP address of the device from which it is accessed
- date and time
in files (web server log files).
As a rule, web server log files are stored for two weeks and then automatically deleted. According to Article 6 paragraph 1 f DSGVO (lawfulness of processing), the legal basis is that there is a legitimate interest in enabling the error-free operation of this website by recording web server log files.
Our website uses HTTP cookies to store user-specific data. In the following, we explain what cookies are and why they are used so that you can better understand the following privacy statement.
What are cookies exactly?
Whenever you browse the Internet, use a browser. Well-known browsers include Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Edge. Most webpages store small text files in your browser. These files are called cookies.
Cookies store certain user data from you, such as language or personal page settings. When you return to our site, your browser sends the “user-related” information back to our site. Thanks to cookies, our website knows who you are and offers you your usual standard settings. In some browsers, each cookie has its own file, in others, such as Firefox, all cookies are stored in a single file.
There are both first-party and third-party cookies. First-party cookies are created directly by our site, third-party cookies are created by partner sites (such as Google Analytics). Each cookie is unique because each cookie stores different information. The expiration time of a cookie also varies from a few minutes to a few years. Cookies are not software programs and do not contain viruses, Trojans or other “pests”. Cookies also cannot access information on your PC.

If you send us personal information by e-mail – that is, outside of this website – we cannot guarantee the secure transmission and protection of your information. We recommend that you never send confidential data unencrypted by e-mail.

The information provided in this section will inform you about how the registration, dispatch, evaluation and contents of our e-mail newsletter are structured.

This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. This shortens the processing of IP addresses and, according to Google, virtually excludes the possibility of personal references. Insofar as the data collected about you is related to a person, this should therefore be excluded immediately and the personal data deleted immediately.
We use Google Analytics to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website. We can use the statistics obtained to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law.
To protect your personal data, we have concluded an order processing agreement with Google in accordance with Art. 28 DSGVO.
Further information about Google can be found here: https://policies.google.com/privacy
When contacting us (e.g. via contact form, e-mail, telephone or via social media), the user’s details will be processed for the purpose of processing the contact enquiry and processing it in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.

We delete the enquiries if they are no longer necessary. We check the necessity every two years; furthermore, the statutory archiving obligations apply.
Facebook-Pixel, Custom Audiences und Facebook-Conversion
Due to our legitimate interests in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online service, the so-called “Facebook pixel” of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or if you are resident in the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”), is used within our online service.
Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active).
With the help of the Facebook pixel, Facebook is on the one hand able to determine the visitors of our online offer as a target group for the presentation of ads (so-called “Facebook ads”). Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to display the Facebook ads placed by us only to Facebook users who have shown an interest in our online offering or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products that are determined on the basis of the websites visited) that we transmit to Facebook (so-called “custom audiences”). Using Facebook pixels, we also want to ensure that our Facebook ads match the potential interest of users and are not annoying. Using Facebook pixels, we can also track the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing if users were referred to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (known as “conversion”).
We also use the “Custom Audiences from File” method of the social network Facebook, Inc. In this case, the e-mail addresses of the newsletter recipients are uploaded to Facebook. The upload process is encrypted. The upload is used solely to determine the recipients of our Facebook ads. We want to ensure that the ads are only displayed to users who are interested in our information and services.
Facebook processes the data in accordance with Facebook’s data usage policy. Accordingly, general information about the presentation of Facebook ads is contained in Facebook’s data usage policy: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php.
You may opt out of Facebook pixel collection and use of your information to display Facebook ads. To set what types of ads you see within Facebook, you can go to the page set up by Facebook and follow the instructions on the settings for usage-based ads there: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads. The settings are platform-independent, i.e. they are applied to all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.
System and Information Security
We secure our website and our other systems by technical and organizational measures against loss, destruction, access, change or spreading of the stored data by unauthorized persons. Despite controls, however, a complete protection against all dangers is not possible. The connection to the Internet and the resulting technical possibilities alone do not guarantee that contents and the flow of information are not viewed and recorded by third parties.
