Personal data

Personal data is information about you and may include your name, your address and your email address. You must not disclose any personal data for the use of our website. Under certain conditions, we need to collect your name and address, as well as other details, so that we can provide you with the services you require.

The same applies in the case that we send out information material upon request and when we follow-up on your inquiries. In such cases, we will always inform you. Otherwise, we only store data that you submit automatically or voluntarily.

As a rule, when a user uses one of our services, we only collect data that is necessary to be able to offer our services. We may possibly ask for further information that is of a voluntary nature. When we process personal data, it is in an effort to provide the user with our service or to pursue our commercial objectives.

When a user visits our website, we store specific information for administrative and technical reasons. These include the type and version of the browser used, the date and time of access and the IP address.

This information is anonymous and only used for statistical purposes to improve our internet and online services.
This anonymous data is separated from personal data, is stored on secured systems and does not allow any conclusions regarding an individual. This means that the user‘s personal data are always protected.


When visiting our website, we may store information on your computer in the form of cookies. Cookies are small text files that are transmitted to the user‘s browser from an internet server and then stored on the user’s hard drive. The legal basis for the use of cookies is provided by Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit f DSGVO.

Google Tag Manager

This website uses Google Tag Manager. The Tag Manager does not record personal data. The tool controls the activation of other tags, which may under certain circumstances collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation takes place on the domain or in cookies, this remains in effect for all tracking tags that are implemented with Google Tag Manager. The data protection notice from Google for this tool can be found under

Google Analytics with anonymization function

This website uses features of the web analytics service Google Analytics provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, also known as “Google “. Google Analytics uses so-called “Cookies”, which are text files that are stored on your computer through which an analysis of website usage is enabled.

The information generated by cookies, i.e. time, place and frequency of your website visit including your IP address, is generally transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the USA.

Our website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizelp”. Your IP address will be truncated, and therefore made anonymous, within Member States of the European Union or in other member states that are parties to the Agreement of the European Economic Area.

Google will use this information to evaluate your use of this website, to compile reports for us on website activity, and to render other services related to website and internet use to the website operator. This information will also, where appropriate, be transmitted by Google to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process these data on behalf of Google.

By its own account, Google will not, under any circumstances, merge your IP address with other Google data. You may refuse the installation of cookies by selecting the appropriate setting on your browser. We would like to make you aware of the fact that the functionality of this website may be restricted if you do so.

Google also offers an Opt-out Browser Add-on for the most commonly used browsers, which gives the user more control regarding what data Google collects regarding the websites that the user visits. The Opt-out Add-on communicates with the JavaScript (ga.ja) of Google Analytics to indicate that no information regarding website visits should be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, the Google Analytics Browser Opt-out Browser Add-on does not prevent the information being communicated with us or where applicable, with other web analyses services performed by us. For more information regarding the installation of the Opt-out Browser Add-on please visit the following link:

If you visit our website from a mobile end device (smart phone or tablet) then click on the this link to prevent future tracking by Google Analytics within this website. This is also a possible alternative to the above-mentioned Browser Opt-out Add-on. By clicking on the link, an Opt-out cookie will be inserted on your browser, which is only valid for this browser and this domain. If you delete the cookies on this browser, then the Opt-out cookie with also be deleted and you must once again click on the above-mentioned link.

If you confirm that your web and application browser history from Google may be linked to your Google account, and therefore information from your Google account may be used to personalize what advertisements are displayed, then Google merges your data together with Google Analytics data to compile target group lists to develop remarketing that crosses all platforms and devices. In addition to this, your Google ID authorization code will initially be recorded by Google Analytics on our website, the ID authorization code that is linked to your Google account (i.e. personal data). Subsequently, Google Analytics will temporarily link your ID with your Google Analytics data to optimize our target groups.

If you do not agree with this, you can turn this off by going to the appropriate setting under “my account” of your Google account.
