Provision of the website and creation of logfiles

Each time our website is accessed, we use cookies for the purpose of improving the quality of our website and its contents. Furthermore, some features of our website technically require the use of cookies. Therefore, it is necessary that the browser is recognised when moving from one page to another. The data hereby collected from the users, is pseudonymised through technical arrangements and an identification of the user is not possible.

Cookies are stored on the user’s computer and are transmitted from there to our website. Therefore, as a user, you have full control over the use of cookies.

Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics is used in the interest of designing and improving the website to meet the needs of our customers and to align our site with their needs. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. This page also uses Google APIs, a program interface provided by Google. Data, such as the IP address in particular, may also be transmitted to Google as part of this use. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will reduce your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

Google Web Fonts

For the uniform representation of fonts we use so-called web fonts, which are provided by Google. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly. To do this, the browser you are using must connect to Google’s servers. This gives Google knowledge that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

For more information about Google Web Fonts, please see Google's privacy policy:

You can set your browser not to load fonts from Google servers (for example, by installing add-ons). If your browser does not support Google Fonts or if you block access to the Google servers, the text will be displayed in the system's default font. Please note that our website then does no longer correspond to our screen design.

Changes to our Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to change this data protection declaration at any time under observance of the prevailing data protection regulations.
