Collection of general information
With each access to this offer, information is automatically collected by us or the web space provider. This information, also known as server log files, is of a general nature and does not allow any conclusions about your person.
Among other things the following information is recorded Name of the website, file, date, amount of data, web browser and web browser version, operating system, the domain name of your internet provider, the so-called referrer URL (the page from which you accessed our offer) and the IP address.
Without this data it would be technically partly impossible to deliver and display the contents of the website. In this respect the collection of data is absolutely necessary. Furthermore, we use the anonymous information for statistical purposes. They help us to optimise our offer and technology. We also reserve the right to subsequently check the log files if we suspect an illegal use of our offer.
Handling of personal data
Definition: Personal data is any information by which a person can be uniquely identified. It is therefore data that can be traced back to a person.
This personal data includes the first name and surname, telephone number and e-mail address. Personal data also includes information on hobbies, memberships and preferences as well as Internet pages that have been accessed.
These data are only collected, used and, if necessary, passed on by the provider if the legislator expressly permits this or if the user agrees to the collection, processing, use and passing on of the data.
If you contact us via the online form or by e-mail, we store the information you provide in order to answer your inquiry and to be able to ask possible follow-up questions.
Integration of third party services and content
Our offer sometimes includes contents, services and performances of other providers. These include, for example, maps provided by Google Maps, videos from YouTube and graphics and images from other websites. In order for this data to be called up and displayed in the user’s browser, it is absolutely necessary to transmit the IP address. The providers (hereinafter referred to as „third party providers“) therefore perceive the IP address of the respective user.
Although we make every effort to use only third-party providers who only require the IP address in order to deliver content, we have no influence on whether the IP address is possibly stored. In this case, this process serves statistical purposes, among other things. If we have knowledge that the IP address is stored, we will inform our users of this fact.
This website uses so-called cookies. These are text files that are stored on your computer by the server. They contain information on the browser, IP address, operating system and Internet connection. We do not pass this data on to third parties or link it to personal data without your consent.
Cookies fulfil two main tasks. They help us to make it easier for you to navigate through our offer and enable the correct display of the website. They are not used to smuggle in viruses or to start programs.

Use of the Matomo analysis software
On our website we use Matomo (formerly: „PIWIK“). This is an open-source analysis software with which we can analyse the use of our internet pages. In doing so, your IP address, the website(s) of our Internet presence that you visit, the website from which you have switched to our Internet presence (referrer URL), your length of stay on our Internet presence as well as the frequency with which one of our websites is called up are processed.
These data are stored exclusively on our server. It will not be passed on to third parties. Furthermore, no cookies are set on your computer. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis and optimization of our Internet presence.
However, we use Matomo with the anonymisation function „Automatically Anonymize Visitor IPs“. This anonymization function shortens your IP address by two bytes so that an assignment to you or to the Internet connection you are using is impossible.
If you use the opt-out, a cookie is stored on your terminal device via your Internet browser, which prevents further analysis. Please note, however, that you will have to click the above link again if you delete the cookies stored on your terminal device.
In accordance with the principles of data avoidance and data economy, we store personal data only as long as it is necessary or required by law (legal storage period). If the purpose of the collected information ceases to apply or the storage period ends, we block or delete the data.
