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 log files of the server. Collected are:

  • type and version of browser used
  • 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 these general data and information, no automatic conclusions are drawn about data subjects. This information is required in order to

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

The collected data and information is evaluated by the processor in order to monitor and ensure data protection and data security on the system. These pseudonymized data of the server log files are stored separately from any other 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.

Contact form

If you send us enquiries about products or services via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact data you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO, if your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO) or on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) DSGVO) if this has been requested; the consent can be revoked at any time.

The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

Google Analytics


Insofar as 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 analyze the activities of a user across devices.

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 the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. In the event that IP anonymization 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 by an IP anonymization in order to ensure an anonymized collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google. For more information on 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 pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 p.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 based on the adequacy decision of the European Commission. 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 of your browser software; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.

You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and 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 to visually display geographical information. By using this service, our location is displayed to you and a possible approach is facilitated.

Already when calling up those sub-pages in which the map of Google Maps 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 through 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 the assignment with your profile at Google, 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 insertion of personalized advertising, market research and/or needs-based design of its website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google to exercise this, 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 disabling the Google Maps web service by turning 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, the additional terms of use for Google Maps can be found at Detailed information on data protection in connection with the use of Google Maps can be found on Google's website ("Google Privacy Policy"): .
