Our website makes use of so-called cookies in order to recognize repeat use of our website by the same user/internet connection subscriber. Cookies are small text files that your internet browser downloads and stores on your computer. They are used to improve our website and services. In most cases these are so-called “session cookies” that are deleted once you leave our website. To an extent, however, these cookies also pass along information used to automatically recognize you. Recognition occurs through an IP address saved to the cookies. The information thereby obtained is used to improve our services and to expedite your access to the website. You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting the settings on your browser software accordingly. You should be aware, however, that by doing so you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of our website.

Server data

For technical reasons, data such as the following which your internet browser transmits to us or to our web space provider (so called server log files), is collected: type and version of the browser you use – operating system – websites that linked you to our site (referrer URL) – websites that you visit – date and time of your visit – your Internet Protocol (IP) address. This anonymous data is stored separately from any personal information you may have provided, thereby making it impossible to connect it to any particular person. The data is used for statistical purposes in order to improve our website and services.


Our website offers you the opportunity to subscribe to our newsletter. The newsletter provides you periodically with information about our services. To receive our newsletter, we require a valid email address. We will review the email address you provide for the purpose of determining whether you are in fact the owner of the email address provided or whether the actual owner of said address is authorized to receive the newsletter. When subscribing to our newsletter, we will store your IP address as well as the date and time you subscribed. This serves to protect us in the event a third party improperly and without your knowledge makes use of your email address to subscribe to our newsletter. We will not collect any other data. The data thereby collected is used solely for the purpose of receiving our newsletter. No data is transferred to third parties. Nor is any of this information matched to any information that other components of our website may collect. You may cancel your subscription to the newsletter at any time. You will find additional details in the email confirming your subscription as well as in each newsletter.

Use of etracker

Our website employs components from etracker GmbH, Erste Brunnenstraße 1, 20459 Hamburg, Germany. Each time our website is accessed, these components collect and store data for marketing and optimization purposes which can then be used to compile user profiles under a pseudonym through the use of cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in the cache of the internet browser of the user visiting the site in order to recognize this user’s browser. Data collected in this manner will not be used to determine the personal identity of visitors to our website unless this is agreed to separately by the person visiting the site. In addition, this data will not be merged with personal information or with a user profile compiled under a pseudonym. Consent to the collection and storage of this data can be withdrawn at any time with future effect. To withdraw consent to the storage of your data, please view this site and follow the instructions provided there.

Integration of services and contents provided by third parties

It may occur that within this online presence, contents of third parties (e.g. YouTube videos, data from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites) are included. This always requires that the providers of these services (hereinafter referred to as “third party providers”) perceive the IP address of the users – without the IP address they would not be able to transmit the contents to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is crucial for the presentation of these contents. We aim to publish only contents whose providers are using the IP address solely in order to distribute the contents. However, we have no influence should a third party provider store the IP address for statistical purposes, for example. As far as we are aware of this, we point this out to our users.


On the basis of the Federal Data Protection Act, you may contact us at no cost if you have questions relating to the collection, processing or use of your personal information, if you wish to request the correction, blocking or deletion of the same, or if you wish to cancel explicitly granted consent. Please note that you have the right to have incorrect data corrected or to have personal data deleted, where such claim is not barred by any legal obligation to retain this data.
