When our website is accessed, the IP address of the accessing system, the accessing page, the accessed page, date, time, transferred data volume, status data (error code) as well as the browser and operating system of the accessing system are stored in log files on our systems. This data is used by us for operational monitoring and the creation of anonymous access statistics. A personal evaluation of this data, e.g. for the creation of user profiles, does not take place.

We use cookies on some pages of our website in order to provide you with a more personalized service. You can set your browser so that it informs you about the use of cookies or does not allow them to be stored. You will still be able to use our website, but it may be less convenient.

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics from the US company Google Inc. to carry out usage analyses of our website.

A cookie containing usage information is set on your computer. The cookie is transferred to a server of the service provider, possibly in the USA, and stored there. You can find information on its use in Google’s privacy policy here

We also commission Google to shorten IP addresses using the AnonymizeIP() function in order to exclude any direct personal reference.

Links to third-party offers and external services

We also refer to websites of other providers on our web pages if we wish to draw your attention to their content. We also link to our Facebook and Instagram pages. These can also be videos from YouTube, for example, which we make available there ourselves. When accessing such third-party offers, we have no influence on how the provider handles your data. Please refer to their privacy policy for more information.

We also integrate useful services from other providers on our website that we consider useful. If data about you is collected, processed or used when you use the website, this only happens if you enter data yourself. The contact person for this (“responsible body”) is the respective provider. The privacy policy of the respective provider applies to the use and processing of your data.

Only by clicking on this link will you be added to the list of recipients of the newsletter you have ordered (double opt-in procedure). The link is valid for 30 days and then expires. If the order has not been confirmed by clicking on it during this period, all data will be automatically deleted. If the order was successful, we store your e-mail address, your IP address(es), the date and time of the order or unsubscription and, if you have entered them, your first name and surname. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time by using the link at the end of each newsletter mailing.
