Privacy Statement

We take the protection of your personal data seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with data protection regulations.

Data processing when using this website

We process your personal data as follows:

Server Log Files

The provider of the websites automatically processes information provided by your browser automatically, known as server log files. These include:

  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL (address of origin)
  • Date and time of server request
  • IP address

This data is stored separately from other data that you may transmit to us and is not merged with data from other sources.
The legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter f GDPR, which permits the processing of data on the basis of legitimate interest. In this case, there is a legitimate interest in the secure and uninhibited operation of the web server. In order to ensure this, the administration must be able to detect and track attacks and malfunctions of the system via server log files. In order to recognise attack patterns, accesses to the server must be saved. As soon as this data is no longer needed it is deleted. For technical reasons, the data is available to the hosting service provider, who is, however, bound by our instructions and contractually obligated to us.


The website uses cookies. These are data records that are stored on your computer and can be evaluated by us. They are necessary in order to provide you with the web pages.

You will find more details on the cookies used in the respective sections of this Notice.

In addition, cookies are used which store the user's consent to setting technically unnecessary cookies for a period of one year.

These cookies are technically necessary and are processed based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in a technically error-free and optimized provision of our services.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of these internet pages may be limited.


This website uses the web analysis service Matomo in order to analyse and regularly improve the use of the website. The statistics obtained will be used to improve the site and make it more interesting for you as a user.

Information is collected about your use of the website and, among other things, browser type and version, operating system used, referrer URL (previously visited page), IP address and date/time of the request.

The information generated about the use of this website is not passed on to third parties.

Cookies may be used that have a duration of up to one year. You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly.

The data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter a GDPR).

You can refuse your consent or revoke it at any time. In this case, an opt-out cookie will be stored in your browser, which prevents Matomo from storing usage data. If you delete cookies, this has the effect that the Matomo opt-out cookie is also deleted. The opt-out would then have to be reactivated when you visit our site again.
