You can identify the use of this safeguarding of the data transmission by the small lock icon at the upper left in the browser and use of https as part of our Internet address.

For technical reasons, the following data, which your Internet browser transmits to us or to our web space provider, is collected (so-called server log files):

  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system used
  • Web page from which you visit us (referrer URL)
  • Web page you are visiting
  • Date and time of your access
  • Your Internet protocol (IP) address.

This anonymous data is stored separately from any personal data you may have provided and thus, it does not allow any inferences to be drawn concerning a specific person. It is analysed for statistical purposes in order to optimise our website and our offerings.


Our website uses cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your device with the aid of the browser. They do no cause any harm. We use cookies to make our offering user-friendly. Some cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them. They enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit us. If you do not want this, then you can set up your browser in such a manner that it informs you when cookies are set and so that you allow this only on a case-by-case basis. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of our website can be limited.

Google Analytics with anonymisation function

Our website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics from the company Google Inc., headquartered at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA ("Google"). To do this, cookies are used that enable an analysis of the use of the website.

The information generated through these cookies, e.g. time, location and frequency of your website visit, including your IP address, is sent to Google in the USA and stored there. You can prevent the installation of cookies through appropriate settings of your browser software. However we expressly state that, in this case, it is possible that not all functions of our website can be used to their full extent.

You can prevent this by setting up your browser so that no cookies are stored.

On our website, we use Google Analytics with an IP anonymisation function. In this case, your IP address is already shortened and made anonymous by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other signatories to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. This only allows for a rough localization.

Google will use this information to evaluate your use of our website, to compile reports about the website activities for us, and to provide other services relating to use of the website and Internet use. Google may also pass this information on to third parties, provided that this is prescribed by law or if third parties are processing this data by order of Google. According to Google's own statements, Google will not, under any circumstances, associate your IP address with other Google data.

Moreover, Google offers a deactivation option for the most popular browsers that gives you more control over what data is collected and processed by Google. If you activate this option, no information relating to your visit to this website will be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, activation does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or other web analysis services that we may use. Additional information concerning the deactivation option provided by Google and the activation of this option is provided via the following link:

We have entered into a corresponding agreement with Google Inc. concerning commissioned data processing. Data processing is carried out on the basis of the legal provisions of § 96 Paragraph 3 TKG and Article 6 paragraph 1 lit a (consent) and/or f (legitimate interest) GDPR.

Our concern as stipulated in the GDPR (legitimate interest) is the improvement of our offering and of our website. Because the privacy of our users is important, the user data is pseudonymised. The user data will be stored for 26 months.

Google AdWords

In addition to advertise our website, we use the Google advertising tool "Google AdWords". In this regard, we use the analysis service "Conversion Tracking" by Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter "Google" on our website.

If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can identify that you as a user have clicked on one of our ads placed with Google and that you have been redirected to a website.

Google uses the information obtained via the "conversion cookies" to prepare visit statistics for our website. Using the statistics, we learn the total number of users that have clicked on our ad, and, in addition, which pages of our website have subsequently been accessed by the respective user. However, we or other companies that advertise via "Google AdWords" do not obtain any information whatsoever with which users can be personally identified.

You can prevent installation of the "conversion cookies" through an appropriate setting in your browser, e.g. the browser setting that deactivates automatic setting of any cookies, or that only blocks the cookies from the domain "".
