None of the information gathered can be used to identify you. This information is technically required in order to correctly output the content of websites you requested and is necessarily gathered whenever you use the Internet. We use such anonymous information for statistical evaluation, which we then use as a basis for optimizing our Internet presence and the technology behind it.
When you contact us by e-mail or via the contact form, the information you provide is stored for the purpose of processing your request and any follow-up questions we may have.
Data deletion or blocking
We adhere to the principles of data reduction and data economy. We therefore store your personal data only for as long as is necessary in order to fulfill the purposes specified here or as is legally required by the various retention periods. After the corresponding purpose is no longer applicable or these retention periods have expired, the stored data is blocked or deleted as a matter of routine and in accordance with the legal regulations.

To ensure that data can be blocked at any time, this data must be held available in a block file for monitoring purposes. You can also request data to be deleted provided that it is not subject to compulsory archiving. If such an obligation exists, we will block your data upon your request.
You can make changes or withdraw your consent with effect for the future by sending us a message to that effect.
Changes to our data protection regulations
We reserve the right to adapt this data privacy statement occasionally in order to ensure that it always corresponds to the current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data privacy statement, for example when we introduce new services. In this case, the new data privacy statement applies when you revisit our website.
Like many other websites, we also use what are known as “cookies.” Cookies are small text files that are transmitted to your hard drive by a website server. This way, we receive specific data, e.g. the IP address, browser and operating system used, automatically via your computer and your Internet connection.
Cookies cannot be used to start programs or transmit viruses to a computer. The information included in the cookies allows us to make it easier for you to navigate our website and to display it correctly.
Under no circumstances will we transmit data we have collected to third parties or create a link with personal data without your consent.
Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses what are known as “cookies,” i.e. text files that are stored on your computer and enable your use of the website to be analyzed. The information on your use of this website that is generated by the cookie is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA, where it is stored. Due to the fact that IP anonymization is activated on these websites, Google will first truncate your IP address within the member states of the European Union or other contracting states that have signed the Agreement on the European Economic Area. It is only in exceptional cases that the full IP address is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and then truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyze your use of the website, compile reports on website activities, and provide further services related to website use and Internet use to the website operator. Google does not merge the IP address that your browser transmits in the context of Google Analytics with other data. You can prevent cookies from being stored by adjusting the corresponding setting in your browser software. However, we would like to point out that you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent in this case. Another way to prevent Google from collecting and processing data relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) that is generated by the cookie is to click on the following link, and download and install the browser plug-in:
This will install an opt-out cookie on your device that prevents Google Analytics from collecting data for this website and this browser in the future for as long as the cookie is installed in your browser.
Use of Google remarketing
This website uses the remarketing function provided by Google Inc. The purpose of the function is to present advertisements tailored to the interests of website visitors within the Google advertising network. What is known as a “cookie” is stored in the website visitor’s browser. This cookie allows visitors to be recognized when they access websites that are part of the Google advertising network. On these websites, visitors can be shown advertisements that refer to content the visitors have accessed previously on websites that use the Google remarketing function.
According to Google, no personal data is gathered during this process. If you would still prefer not to use the Google remarketing function, you can deactivate it by going to http://www.google.com/settings/ads and selecting the corresponding settings.
