Data Protection and Privacy Policy

This data protection declaration is intended to inform the users of this website about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the website operator.

The website operator takes your data protection very seriously and treats your personal data confidentially and in accordance with legal regulations. As new technologies and the continuous development of this website may result in changes to this data protection declaration, we recommend that you read the data protection declaration again at regular intervals.

Definitions of the terms used (e.g. "personal data" or "processing") can be found in Art. 4 DSGVO.


As website operators, we collect data on access to the website on the basis of our legitimate interest (see Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO) and store these as "server log files" on the website server. The following data is logged in this way:

  • Visited Website
  • Time at duration of access
  • Amount of data sent in bytes
  • Source/reference from which you accessed the page
  • Browser used
  • Operating system used
  • IP address used

The server log files are stored as far as legally permissible and then deleted. The data is stored for security reasons, for example to clarify cases of misuse. If data have to be deleted for reasons of evidence, they are excluded from deletion until the incident has been finally resolved.


This website uses cookies for pseudonymised range measurement, which are transmitted to the user's browser either from our server or the server of third parties. Cookies are small files that are stored on your end device. Your browser accesses these files. The use of cookies increases the user-friendliness and security of this website.

If you do not want cookies for range measurement to be stored on your terminal device, you can object to the use of these files here:

Common browsers offer the setting option not to accept cookies. There is no guarantee that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions if you make the appropriate settings.


The website operator only collects, uses and passes on your personal data if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of data. Personal information is any information that is used to identify you and which can be traced back to you, such as 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 offer, we store your access data to this website (without personal reference). 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.


If you contact us as a website operator through the contact options offered, your details will be stored so that they can be used to process and respond to your enquiry. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.


If you leave a contribution or comment on this website, your IP address will be saved. This is done on the basis of our legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO and serves the security of us as website operator: Because if your comment should offend against valid right, we can be sued for it, why we have an interest in the identity of the comment and/or contribution author.


This website uses the web analytics service Matomo (formerly Piwik) to help analyse and check how our website is used. We can improve our offering and make it more interesting for you with the statistics we gain.

For this purpose the service, amongst other things, records from which third party website you accessed our site (so-called Referrer-URL). Information about the time of access and the place from which the access was made, your language settings as well as which part of our website you called up, and how often and for how long you looked at a particular part of our website. We gather this information mainly using Cookies which are set by Matomo. Your IP address will also be gathered to ensure the security of the service and to give us, as website operator conclusions about which country, which region or which place the user comes from.

This wesite uses Matomo. With this the IP addresses are ony stored in a shortened form and a direct personal association is excluded. Identification of you, as the user, is thus no longer possible. The IP address transferred from your browser by Matomo will not be linked to the other data we gather nor will any data be passed on to third parties. No individual user profiles will be created from the data processed.

Further details about data protection are available in the data protection declaration of Matomo under and the DSGVO information under

The legal basis for the use of Cookies from Matomo on your end unit is § 25 Abs. 1 TTDSG.
