Privacy policy

This privacy policy informs the users of our website about the nature, scope and purposes of processing personal data.

We take your data protection very seriously and treat your personal data confidentially and according to the legal regulations. 

Definitions of the terms used and our data protection practice are based on the provisions of the EU Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) as well as other relevant national legal provisions. This privacy policy does not create any rights or obligations beyond the applicable data protection regulations.

Although the masculine form was chosen in the text for better readability, the information refers to members of both sexes.

Access data / server log files 

We collect data about accesses to the website and store them as "server log files" on the website server. The following data is collected in this way:

  • visited website
  • time at the time of access
  • amount of sent data in bytes
  • source/reference from which you reached the page
  • used browser
  • used operating system
  • used IP address

Personal data is collected if you explicitly provide us with this information (e.g. through the contact form on the website). Technical data is automatically saved when you visit our website. Some of this data is collected to ensure the error-free functioning of our website and for security reasons, e.g. to be able to clarify cases of abuse. Some data can be used for analysis.

Handling of contact data

If you contact us through the offered contact options, your data will be stored for processing and answering your inquiry. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.

Comments and contributions

If users leave comments or other contributions, their IP addresses are stored. This is done for the safety of the website operator in case someone writes illegal content in comments and contributions (insults, prohibited political propaganda, etc.). In this case, the website operator himself can be prosecuted for the comment or contribution and is therefore interested in the identity of the author.


This website uses cookies that are transferred to the user's browser either from our server or the server of third parties. Cookies are small files, which are stored on your end device. Your browser accesses these files. The use of cookies increases the user-friendliness and security of this website. Some cookies remain stored on your end device. 

Cookies do not cause any damage and only serve to recognize the website visitor.

If you do not want cookies to be stored on your end device, you can object to the use of these files here:

Common browsers offer the setting option not to allow cookies. Note: It is not guaranteed that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions if you make the appropriate settings.

The website operator collects, uses and passes on your personal data only if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of data.

Personal data includes all information, which serves to determine your person and which can be traced back to you - such as your name, e-mail address and telephone number. 

You can also visit this website without providing any personal information. However, to improve our online offer, we store (without personal reference) your access data to this website. These access data include, for example, the file you requested or the name of your Internet provider. By making the data anonymous, it is not possible to draw conclusions about your person.

Social Networks

    We would like to point out that we are represented in the following social media, which may store the data of their users (such as personal information, IP address, etc.) in accordance with their privacy policies and use it for business purposes. For the use of these data it is not necessary to have a user account in these social media. Here you will find links to the respective privacy policies of the social networks mentioned: 

By clicking on the links to social media on our website, you give your consent to communicate with these media. Data exchange may occur even if you do not have a user account.

If you are logged in to social networks while visiting our website and click on the links of these networks on our website, the transmitted data will be linked to your user account. If you want to avoid this, please log out of your user account in the social media before clicking.

The data can also be processed within these networks for market research and advertising purposes (details can be found in the data protection declarations of the providers).

Newsletter subcription

The website operator offers you a newsletter in which he informs you about current events and offers. If you would like to subscribe to the newsletter, you must provide a valid e-mail address. By subscribing to the newsletter, you agree to receive the newsletter and the procedures explained.

Revocation and termination: You can revoke your consent to receive the newsletter at any time and thus cancel the newsletter subscription. After your cancellation your personal data will be deleted. Your consent to receive the newsletter expires at the same time. At the end of each newsletter you will find the link for cancellation.

Rights of the user

As a user, you have the right to receive, upon request, free information about what personal data has been stored about you. You also have the right to have incorrect data corrected and to have your personal data processed or deleted. If you suspect that your data has been processed unlawfully, you can lodge a complaint with the competent data protection authority.

Deletion of data

Unless your request conflicts with a legal obligation to retain data (e.g. data retention), you have the right to have your data deleted. If deletion cannot be carried out because the data is required for permissible legal purposes, data processing will be restricted. In this case the data will be blocked and not processed for other purposes.

Right of objection

Users of this website may exercise their right to object and object to the processing of their personal data at any time. 

If you wish to correct, block, delete or obtain information about your personal data stored, or if you have any questions regarding the collection, processing or use of your personal data, or if you wish to revoke consents granted, please contact the following e-mail address:
