Other cookies remain on your end device and enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit (persistent cookies).

Collection of general data and information

The website (or the associated web server) collects a series of general data and information with each call. These are stored in the server's log files. Recorded are:

  • type and version of browser used
  • the operating system used
  • the website from which the access was made (so-called referrer)
  • the target page
  • date and time of access
  • the internet protocol address (IP address)
  • the Internet service provider of the accessing system

When using this general data and information, no automatic conclusions are drawn about data subjects. This information is required in order to

  • display the contents of the website correctly
  • to ensure the permanent operability of the systems and technology, and
  • to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack.

The collected data and information are analysed by the processor in order to monitor and ensure data protection and data security on the system. This pseudonymised data of the server log files is stored separately from any further personal data provided by a data subject. As a matter of principle, this data is not passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to pass it on or the passing on serves the purpose of criminal prosecution.

Google Analytics


If you have given your consent, this website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"). This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus to analyse the activities of a user across devices. This data protection notice is provided by

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 the website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. In the event that IP anonymisation is activated on this website, however, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended to include IP anonymisation in order to ensure that IP addresses are recorded anonymously (so-called IP masking). The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. For more information on the terms of use and data protection, please visit or

Purposes of processing

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.

Legal basis

The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S.1 lit. a DSGVO.

Recipients / categories of recipients

The recipient of the collected data is Google.

Transfer to third countries

Personal data is transferred to the USA under the EU-US Privacy Shield on the basis of the European Commission's adequacy decision. You can access the certificate here.

Duration of data storage

The data sent by us and linked to cookies, user IDs (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 14 months. Data whose retention period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month.

Data subject rights

You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by preventing the storage of cookies through a corresponding setting in your browser software; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent.

In addition, you can prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) to Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser add-on. Opt-out cookies prevent the future collection of your data when visiting this website. To prevent collection by Universal Analytics across different devices, you must perform the opt-out on all systems used.

Google Maps

On our website we use Google Maps (API) from Google LLC ("Google"). Google Maps is a web service for displaying interactive (land) maps in order to visually present geographical information. By using this service, our location is shown to you and a possible approach is made easier.

When you call up those sub-pages in which the Google Maps map is integrated, information about your use of our website (such as your IP address) is transmitted to Google servers in the USA and stored there. This occurs regardless of whether Google provides a user account via which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not want your data to be associated with your Google profile, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and evaluates them. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.f DSGVO on the basis of Google's legitimate interests in the display of personalised advertising, market research and/or needs-based design of its website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and to exercise this right you must contact Google, see below.

Google LLC, based in the USA, is certified for the us-European data protection agreement "Privacy Shield", which ensures compliance with the level of data protection applicable in the EU.

If you do not agree to the future transmission of your data to Google in the context of the use of Google Maps, you also have the option of completely deactivating the Google Maps web service by switching off the JavaScript application in your browser. Google Maps and thus also the map display on this website can then not be used.

You can view Google's terms of use at, and the additional terms of use for Google Maps at l.

Detailed information on data protection in connection with the use of Google Maps can be found on the Google website ("Google Privacy Policy"):


Our website uses plugins from Vimeo for the integration and display of video content. The provider of the video portal is Vimeo Inc., 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA.

When a page with an integrated Vimeo plugin is called up, a connection to the Vimeo servers is established. Vimeo thereby learns which of our pages you have accessed. Vimeo learns your IP address, even if you are not logged in to the video portal or do not have an account there. The information collected by Vimeo is transmitted to the video portal's servers in the USA.

Vimeo can assign your surfing behaviour directly to your personal profile if you are logged in as a Vimeo member at that time. You can prevent this by logging out of your Vimeo user account beforehand.

The use of Vimeo is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Insofar as a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO; the consent can be revoked at any time.
