Dear user,

To ensure that you feel safe and secure while visiting our web pages, we would like to inform you in the following about how we handle your data.

User data
To improve the quality of our web pages, we collect data on each individual access to our pages for statistical purposes. This data set consists of:

  • the page from which the data was requested,
  • the name of the data file,
  • the date and time of the query,
  • the amount of data transferred,
  • the access status (file transmitted, file not found)
  • the description of the type of browser used,
  • the IP address of the requesting computer shortened to the last three digits.

These data are stored in anonymised form in accordance with the German Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz, TMG).

Google Analytics
We create pseudonymous user profiles in order to design our website to meet customer requirements. You may object to such use of your personal data at any time. Just click here to install a browser plugin that will help you do so.

More information: This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. Google Analytics uses so-termed "cookies”, which are text files that are stored on your computer to enable analysis of how you use our site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website are generally sent to a Google Inc. server in the U.S. and stored there. Since we have enabled IP-anonymisation on this website, your IP address, however, will first be shortened by Google if the IP address is within a Member State of the European Union or another party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the U.S. and shortened there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities, and to provide other linked services connected to the website activity and Internet use. The IP address communicated within the framework of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data held by Google.

You may reject the use of cookies via the appropriate setting on your browser; we point out, however, that if you do so, you may not be able to use all the features of this site fully. You can also prevent Google from collecting the site-usage data generated via the cookie (including your IP address) and from processing the data by downloading and installing a browser plugin available here.

For improved user guidance, we also use a session cookie. This is automatically deleted once you close your browser. You can set your browser to inform you of the potential downloading of cookies, thus ensuring that the use of the cookies is transparent.

Contact form:
To use our contact form, we require your name and e-mail address. You may provide more information if you wish, but you are not obliged to do so. Your information will be used only to respond to your requests.

Data transfer to third parties
We will not transfer your personal data to third parties.
