It is normally possible to use our website without providing any personal data. If personal data is collected on our web pages (name, address or email address, for example), this is always on a voluntary basis as far as possible. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.
We wish to point out that the online transmission of data (e.g. communication by email) can involve security loopholes. It is therefore not possible to completely protect data from being accessed by third parties.

The web pages use so-called cookies in some cases. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies help to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called ‘session cookies’. They are deleted automatically at the end of your visit. Other cookies are stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser when you visit us again.
You can adjust your browser’s settings in such a way that you are notified when cookies are activated so that you can decide whether to give your permission in each case, or so you can reject cookies in specific cases or in general as well as activate the automatic deletion of cookies when you close your browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functions of this website may be restricted.
For reasons of security and to provide protection when transferring confidential content, such as queries that you send to us as the website operator, this site uses SSL encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the browser’s address bar changes from ‘http://” to “https://’ and displays a padlock symbol.
If SSL encryption is activated, the data that you send to us cannot be read by third parties.
You have the option to contact us by email and/or via the contact form on our website. If you do so, the information you provide will be saved for the purpose of processing your query. It will not be passed on to third parties. The data collected in this way will not be compared with data that may have been collected by other components of our site.
REJECTION OF ADVERTISING EMAIL
Use of the contact details provided as part of the obligatory legal notice for sending out advertising and information materials that have not been requested expressly is hereby prohibited. The operators of the web pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited distribution of advertising materials, such as spam email.
USE OF WEB FONTS
External fonts, namely Google Fonts, are used on this website. Google Fonts is a service of Google Inc. (‘Google’). These web fonts are integrated by accessing a server, usually a Google server in the USA. In this process, the server is informed about which of our web pages you have visited. The IP address of the browser on the end device of the person visiting those web pages is also saved by Google. You can find more information in the data privacy information provided by Google, which can be accessed here:
Usage of Google Services
On our website, we use the ‘Google Maps’ component provided by the company Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as ‘Google’.
Every time the ‘Google Maps’ component is accessed, Google activates a cookie to allow the user settings and data to be processed when the page on which the ‘Google Maps’ component is integrated is displayed. This cookie is not usually deleted when the browser is closed but expires after a certain time unless you first delete it manually.
If you do not agree to processing of your data in this way, there is the option to deactivate the ‘Google Maps’ service and thus to prevent transfer of data to Google. You must deactivate the Java Script function of your browser to do so. However, we wish to point out that in this case you may not be able to use ‘Google Maps’ at all, or only with restrictions.
‘Google Maps’ and the information provided via ‘Google Maps’ is used in accordance with the terms and conditions of use of Google
and the additional terms and conditions of business for ‘Google Maps’
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Irland; „Google“). Google (Universal) Analytics uses methods to analyse of your use of the website, such as cookies. The information collected automatically about your use of this website is generally transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Through the activation of IP anonymisation on this website, your IP address is not previously shortened before transfer within the member states of the European Union or in other co-contracting countries of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. The anonymised IP address transmitted by your browser as part of the Google Analytics service will generally not be associated with any other Google data.
Google LLC has its headquarters in the USA and is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield. An up-to-date certificate can be viewed via the following link: https://www.privacyshield.gov/list. Based on this treaty between the USA and the European Commission, the latter has defined a suitable level of data protection for companies certified by the Privacy Shield.
Google Tag Manager
Aditionally we are using the Google Tag Manager. This service allows us to manage website-tags. Tags are code snippets, who are used to measure visitor volume and visitor behavior. These tags are connected with other services (in our case Google Analytics). Tags can transmit data to the connected services when certain events are fired on the website by the user. The Tag Manager itself is not setting cookies, nor collecting personal data. If tracking is deactivated, this also applies to all tracking tags that are managed with the Google Tag Manager.
Prevent installation of cookies by Google services
You can prevent the installation of cookies by the service providers below by adjusting settings in your browser software. This will place an opt-out cookie on your device. If you delete your cookies, you will have to click the link again. Please note that, in this case, you may potentially be unable to use all the features of our website.
You can object to the collection and storage of data by the following service providers with future effect at any time by using a browser plugin. You can find details about this:
