Data Protection and Privacy Policy

Data Protection and Privacy Policy

The operators of this site take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations as well as this privacy policy.

Our website is generally usable without the provision of any personal information. In regards to any personal data (for example name, address or e-mail addresses) that is requested on our site, this is given on a purely voluntary basis, whenever practicable. This data will not be disclosed to third parties without your explicit consent.

Please note that data transmission over the Internet (for example, when communicating by e-mail) may have security vulnerabilities. Absolute data protection from access by third parties is therefore not possible.


Parts of this site use so-called cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer, and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offering (our website) more user-friendly, effective, and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer, and saved by your browser.

The majority of the cookies used on this website are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser on your next visit.

You are able to change the settings of your browser, so that you are informed of the creation of cookies, are able to permit or deny individual cookies, allow for the acceptance of cookies in certain situations, or block them in general, or have your browser delete cookies when closing the software. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.

Google Analytics

This website uses functionality of Google Analytics, a web analytics service. The provider of this service is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". These are text files that are saved on your computer, and enable the analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will generally be transmitted to a Google server located in the USA and stored there.


We have activated IP-anonymisation on this website. As a result, your IP address will be truncated by Google within the member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States of America. Only in rare cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US, and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address provided within the Google Analytics framework will not be combined with other data from Google.

You can prevent cookies from being saved through setting your internet browser preferences; however, we advise that this may prevent you from being able to use all functions of this website. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie in regards to your use of the website (including IP address) by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin from the following link:

Order Data Processing

We have entered into an agreement with Google for order data processing and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.

Google Analytics Demographic Breakdown

This website uses the demographics feature of Google Analytics. As a result, reports can be produced that contain information on the age, gender, and interests of the site visitors. These data are from interest-based advertising from Google and from third-party visitor data. This data can not be assigned to a specific person. You can disable this feature at any time through the ad settings in your Google Account, or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as described in the section "Opposition to Data Collection".

Rights to Information, Deletion, Blocking

At any time you have the right to information about your stored personal data, its origin and the recipient and the purpose of the data processing, as well as a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data, at no cost.

The operators of this website expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as spam e-mails.


All contents and structures of this website are protected by copyright. Publication on the World Wide Web or on other services on the Internet does not equate to a declaration of consent for any other use by third parties. Any use not permitted by German copyright law requires our prior written consent. We expressly allow and welcome the citation of our documents as well as the posting of links to our website, as long as it is indicated that it is the content of the operator of this site and this content is not associated with third-party content that conflicts with our interests.
