We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively if we become aware of specific indications of unlawful use.

The data will be deleted after a maximum of 2 weeks. We reserve the right to the statistical evaluation of anonymised data records.

2.2      Cookies

Some of the pages on our website use cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies are used 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 session cookies. These are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit.

You can adjust your browser settings to make sure that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, block the acceptance of cookies in certain cases or in general, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. Disabling cookies may restrict the functionality of this website.

Cookies that are necessary for electronic communications or to provide certain functions that you have requested are stored in compliance with art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies to ensure the smooth operation and optimised provision of its services. If other cookies (e.g. cookies to analyse your internet usage) are stored, these are dealt with separately in this data protection policy.

2.3      Contact form

If you send us enquiries via the contact form, the information you provide in the form, including the contact details you enter, will be stored by us for the purposes of processing the enquiry and in case there are any subsequent questions.

The processing of the data entered in the contact form is based on our legitimate interests (art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR) or for carrying out measures prior to entering into a contract (art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR). If you do not provide any data, it will be impossible to process your request. 

The data you enter in the contact form shall remain with us until you ask us to delete it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your enquiry). Mandatory legal provisions, in particular storage periods, shall remain unaffected.

2.4      Newsletters

We only send newsletters containing advertising information with the consent of the recipients in compliance with art. 6 para, 1 (a) GDPR.

You can subscribe to our newsletter via a double opt-in procedure: after signing up, you will receive an email asking you to confirm your subscription.

This confirmation is necessary to verify you as the owner of the email address. Subscriptions to the newsletter are logged so that we can prove that these have taken place in accordance with legal requirements.

This includes storing the time of subscription and confirmation as well as your IP address. Other data that you have provided when subscribing to the newsletter will also be stored. Apart from your email address, other information is only used to personalise the newsletter, including your name, for example.

You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time. You will find a link to unsubscribe in every newsletter email.

IP anonymisation

We have activated the IP anonymisation function on this website. This means that, if you are in an EU member state or another country that is a contracting party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, your IP address will be shortened by Google before being transmitted to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened once there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purposes 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. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

Browser plugin

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that if you do so, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting and processing data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plugin available from the following link:

Demographic data in Google Analytics

This website uses the Google Analytics “Demographics” function. This allows reports to be created that contain statements about the age, gender and interests of visitors to the website. This data comes from Google’s interest-based advertising and from visitor data from third-party providers. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time via the ad settings in your Google account or prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics as explained in the section on “Objecting to data collection”.

Retention periods

When using these systems, cookies may be used and data connections to Google servers in the USA may be established. The level of data protection in the US is not sufficient to comply with European legislation. There is a risk that your data may be processed by US authorities without redress.

These tools are used in compliance with art. 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR. This consent is voluntary and can be revoked at any time.

Data stored by Google at user and event level and linked to cookies, user identifiers (e.g. UserID) or advertising IDs (e.g. DoubleClick cookies, Android advertising ID) is anonymised or deleted after 14 months. Click on the following link for more details:
