Which cookies are stored on your computer?


Our website uses cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your terminal device and saved by your browser. They serve to make our offers more user-friendly, effective and secure. We use both so-called temporary cookies, which are automatically deleted when you close your browser ("session cookies"), and persistent (permanent) cookies.


You can choose whether you want to allow certain cookies to be set. You can make changes in your browser settings. If you choose this option, it is possible that you will not be able to make full use of our services.


When using cookies, a distinction must be made between cookies that are absolutely necessary and those that are used for more extensive purposes (measuring access figures, advertising purposes).


Mandatory cookies when using the website


We use session cookies on our websites that are absolutely necessary for the use of our websites. These include cookies that allow us to recognise you while you are visiting the site as part of a single session.


Use of cookies to record user behaviour


The use of tracking cookies enables us to recognise users when they access our website again and assign usage processes to an internally assigned identification number (pseudonym). In this way, we can record repeated accesses to our website and analyse them coherently.


Specifically, we use the following tracking cookie:


Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics to analyse and statistically evaluate website usage. The data obtained from this is used to optimise our website and advertising measures. Google Analytics is a web analysis service operated and provided by Google (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; for Europe: Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland).

Your data is processed on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. During your visit to the website, the following data, among others, are recorded:

- Visitor-related data:

IP address (in shortened form, so no direct personal reference is possible).

Origin (country and city), language, operating system, device (PC, tablet or smartphone)

Browser and all add-ons used

- Traffic sources:

Source of origin of your visit (i.e. which website or advertising medium you used to access us)

- User behaviour:

Google processes website usage data on our behalf and is contractually committed to taking steps to ensure the confidentiality of the data processed. Google also processes this data for its own purposes (e.g. for profiling or linking to any Google accounts). The data about your website usage collected by means of the "cookie" is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA for analysis and stored there.

Google Analytics stores cookies in your web browser for a period of two years since your last visit. These cookies contain a randomly generated user ID with which you can be recognised on future website visits.

The recorded data is stored together with a randomly generated user ID, which enables the evaluation of pseudonymous user profiles. This user-related data is automatically deleted by us after 14 months.

IP anonymisation (masking function "anonymizeIP") takes effect on this website. The IP address of the user is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area and only transmitted anonymously. 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 for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.


You can prevent this processing by taking the following measures:

It is possible to set your browser so that no "cookies" are stored. However, this may result in our website not being fully functional. You can also prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) to Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link:

As an American company, Google is subject to the CLOUD Act. This allows American government authorities to gain access to the data stored by Google. We have no influence on this.

Our newsletter


By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to receive the newsletter and to the procedures described. We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with promotional information (hereinafter "newsletter") only with your consent or on the basis of a legal permission. In order to register for the Newsletter, it is sufficient for you to provide your name and e-mail address. The registration for our newsletter takes place in a so-called double opt-in procedure: After registering, you will receive an e-mail from us asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that no one can register with other people's e-mail addresses. The registrations for the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process in accordance with the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the registration and confirmation time as well as the IP address. Changes to your data stored with the dispatch service provider are also logged.


The newsletter is sent on the basis of the recipient's consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a, Art. 7 DSGVO. It is in our interest to use a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that serves our business interests as well as the expectations of the users and also allows us to prove consent.


How do I unsubscribe from the newsletter?


You can unsubscribe from our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consent. You will find a link to unsubscribe at the end of each newsletter. We may store unsubscribed email addresses for up to three years based on our legitimate interests before deleting them in order to be able to prove consent previously given. The processing of this data is limited to the purpose of a possible defence against claims. An individual deletion request is possible at any time, provided that the existence of prior consent is confirmed at the same time.


Our newsletter service provider


The newsletter is sent using the dispatch service provider "MailChimp", a service of the Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. You can view the privacy policy of the service provider here:

Your data is processed on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO.  The service provider may use the recipients' data in pseudonymous form, i.e. without attribution to a user, to optimise or improve its own services, e.g. to technically optimise the dispatch and presentation of the newsletter or for statistical purposes. However, they do not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them directly or to pass the data on to third parties.

As an American company, Rocket Science Group LLC is subject to the CLOUD Act. This allows American government authorities to gain access to the data stored by Google. We have no influence on this.


Do we disclose your data to third parties?


If we disclose data to other persons and companies (processors or third parties) within the scope of our processing, transmit it to them or otherwise grant them access to the data, this is only done on the basis of your consent (e.g. newsletter), a legal obligation or on the basis of our legitimate interests (e.g. web hosting).

If we commission third parties to process data, this is done on the basis of a "contract processing agreement" in accordance with Art. 28 DSGVO.

How can you object to or revoke the processing of your data?

You may object to the future processing of data relating to you in accordance with Art. 21 DSGVO at any time. The objection can be made in particular against processing for the purposes of direct advertising and data analysis.

This is the case if the processing is not necessary, in particular, for the performance of a contract with you, which is shown by us in each case in the description of the functions. In the event of such an objection, we ask you to explain the reasons why you wish us to discontinue processing your data in the way we do.
