When using the website for information purposes only, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. If you wish to view our website, we collect the following data, which is required in technical terms in order for us to display our website to you and to guarantee its stability and security (legal basis is Art. 6   [f] GDPR):

In addition to the aforementioned data, cookies are stored on your computer when you use our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard drive in the browser that you use and through which certain information flows to the place that sets the cookie (here by us). Cookies cannot run programs or transmit viruses to your computer. They serve to make the website more user-friendly and effective overall.
Registration on our website
To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.
Based on your explicit consent, we will regularly send you our newsletter or comparable information by email to the address that you have specified.
To receive the newsletter, it is sufficient to provide your email address. When registering to receive our newsletter, the data you provide will be used exclusively for this purpose. Subscribers may also be notified by email of circumstances relevant to the service or registration (e.g. changes to the newsletter offer or technical circumstances).

Integration of third-party services and content
It may be the case that third-party content, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites, is integrated into this website. This always assumes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as „third-party Providers“) obtain the user’s IP address. This is because without the IP address, they could not send the content to the respective user’s browser. The IP address is thereby required to display this content. We make every effort to use only that content whose respective providers use the IP address solely for the delivery of the content. However, we have no influence on the fact that the third-party providers may store the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. Insofar as we are aware of this, we will inform users accordingly.
Like many other websites, we also use so-called „Cookies“. Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. This automatically provides us with certain data, such as IP address, browser used, operating system and your connection to the Internet.
Cookies cannot be used to run programs or to transmit viruses to a computer. Based on the information contained in cookies, we can make navigation of the website easier for you and enable the correct display of our web pages.
Under no circumstances will the data that we collect be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.
You can manage many companies‘ online ad cookies through the US site http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU site http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices/.
If you get in touch with us regarding any questions by email or contact form, please give us your voluntary consent for the purpose of making contact. A valid email address is required for this purpose, which is used to assign the request and then reply to it. The provision of further information is optional. The information that you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing your inquiry and for possible follow-up questions. After your request has been processed, your personal data will be automatically deleted.
Use of Google Analytics This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (hereinafter: „Google“). Google Analytics uses „Cookies“, which are text files placed on your computer to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the US and stored there. If you enable IP anonymisation on these sites, however, Google will shorten your IP address beforehand within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the EEA Agreement. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the US and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the site, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with further services associated with website and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
The purposes of data processing are to evaluate the use of the website and to compile reports on activities on the website. Other related services will then be provided based on the use of the website and the Internet. The processing is based on the legitimate interest of the website operator.
Use of script libraries (Google Web Fonts)
Use of Google Maps
Embedded YouTube videos
We embed YouTube videos on some of our websites. YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, is the operator of the corresponding plug-ins. When you visit a page with the YouTube plug-in, a connection to YouTube servers is established, and YouTube will be informed which pages you visit.
The YouTube videos on this website have activated the so-called „extended data protection mode“. YouTube provides this extended data protection mode to ensure that YouTube does not store cookies with personal data on your PC. The IP address is transmitted when the website is called up and for embedding the videos, however this cannot be assigned if you are not logged in to YouTube or another Google service when you visit the site. Due to the extended data protection mode, YouTube only stores cookies on your PC that do not contain any personally identifiable data. These cookies can be prevented by your browser settings and/or extensions.
We have integrated the following companies‘ social media buttons into our website:
• Google Plus
Our website uses the visitor action pixel from Facebook, Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA („Facebook“) for conversion measurement.
This enables visitors to be tracked after they have been redirected to the provider’s website by clicking on a Facebook ad, which in turn allows the effectiveness of Facebook ads to be evaluated for statistical and market research purposes and future advertising measures to be optimised.
Our website uses Google conversion tracking. If you have reached our website via an ad placed by Google, Google AdWords sets a cookie on your computer. The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ad served by Google. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can see that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be traced through the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers see the total number of users who have clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that personally identifies users. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can refuse the setting of a cookie required for this â€“ for example via browser settings that generally deactivate the automatic setting of cookies or by setting your browser so that cookies from the â€œgoogleleadservices.comâ€ domain are blocked. Please note that you may not delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not wish measurement data to be recorded. If you have deleted all of your cookies in your browser, you must set the respective opt-out cookie again.
