We would like to point out that internet-based data transmission has security gaps, which means that a complete protection against access by third parties is impossible.
In some cases, however, these cookies provide information to recognize you automatically. This recognition takes place on the basis of the IP address stored in the cookies. The information obtained in this way serves to optimize our offers and make it easier for you to access our website.
For technical reasons, the following data, which is transmitted to us or to our web space provider by your Internet browser, is recorded (so-called server log files):
- Browser type and version
- used operating system
- Website from which you visit us (Referrer URL)
- Website you visit
- Date and time of your access
- Your Internet Protocol (IP) address
This anonymous data is stored separately from any personal data you may have provided and thus does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about a specific person. They are evaluated for statistical purposes in order to optimize our Internet presence and our offers.
On our website we offer you the possibility to subscribe to our newsletter. With this newsletter we inform you about our offers at regular intervals. In order to receive our newsletter, you need a valid e-mail address. We will check the e-mail address you have entered to see whether you are actually the owner of the e-mail address provided or whether the owner is authorized to receive the newsletter. When you subscribe to our newsletter, we will store your IP address, the date and the time of your subscription. This serves as security on our part, in case that a third party misuses your e-mail address and subscribes to our newsletter without your knowledge. Further data will not be collected by us. The data collected in this way will only be used to subscribe to our newsletter. It will not be passed on to third parties. A comparison of the data collected in this way with data that may be collected by other components of our site also does not take place. You can cancel your subscription to this newsletter at any time. Details can be found in the confirmation e-mail and in each individual newsletter.
How to contact us
On our website we offer you the possibility to contact us by e-mail and/or via a contact form. In this case, the information provided by the user will be stored for the purpose of processing his contact. The data will not be passed on to third parties. A comparison of the data collected in this way with data that may be collected by other components of our site does not take place either.
Possibility of leaving comments
On our site we offer you the opportunity to leave comments on blog posts as well as individual contributions. The IP address of the author/connection owner is stored here. This storage takes place for our security in the event that the author interferes with the rights of third parties through his comments and/or unlawful content is removed. We therefore have a vested interest in the author's stored data, especially as we may be prosecuted for such violations of the law. The data will not be passed on to third parties. A comparison of the data collected in this way with data that may be collected by other components of our site does not take place either.
Use of Google Analytics with anonymized IP
We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as „Google“, on our website. Google Analytics uses „cookies“, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site.
The information generated by these cookies, such as the time, place and frequency of your website visit, including your IP address, is transmitted to and stored by Google in the United States.
We use Google Analytics with an IP anonymization function on our website. In this case, your IP address will already be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area and thus anonymized.
Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of our website, compiling reports on website activity for us and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf.
In addition, Google offers a deactivation option for the most common browsers, which gives you more control over which data is collected and processed by Google. If you activate this option, no information about your website visit will be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, activation does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analytics services we may use. For more information about the opt-out option provided by Google and how to opt-in, please see the link below: https://tools.google.com/dlpag...
Use of Google Maps
We use the component „Google Maps“ of the company Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as „Google“, on our site.
Google sets a cookie each time the „Google Maps“ component is called up in order to process user settings and data when the page on which the „Google Maps“ component is integrated is displayed. As a rule, this cookie is not deleted when you close your browser, but expires after a certain period of time unless you delete it manually beforehand.
If you do not agree with this processing of your data, it is possible to deactivate the "Google Maps" service and thus prevent the transmission of data to Google. To do this, you must deactivate the Java Script function in your browser. However, we would like to point out that in this case you cannot use „Google Maps“ or can only use it to a limited extent.

When you visit our site while logged into facebook, facebook uses the information collected by the component to identify which specific page you are visiting and associates that information with your personal account on facebook. If, for example, you click on the „Like“ button or make comments, this information is transferred to your personal user account on facebook and stored there.
