Collection of General Data
When you access our website, various general data will be collected and stored in log files of the server. This is data that is required for the provision of the contents and services of our website. These data do not allow any direct conclusion to be drawn with respect to your identity and are not used by us to establish a reference to your identity. In particular, it concerns data regarding your IP address, your internet browser, the date and time of your inquiry, the internet pages you visit on our website, the operating system you use, your internet service provider and the internet page from which you accessed our website. We evaluate this type of anonymous data statistically in order to continuously improve our offering and the technology of our website and to optimize data protection.
On our website, we use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are text files that are transferred from a server to the hard disk of your computer and remain there for the duration of the session or until deletion, depending on the type of cookie and the settings of your internet browser. Cookies are used to store your system and usage information relating to the use of our website. They may also contain a unique identifier that allows us and other website providers to distinguish your system from other systems and to recognize it the next time you visit. By using cookies we guarantee the user-friendliness and functionality of our website.
For our website we use Google Analytics, a tracking tool of Google, LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies” (see above under “cookies”), which are stored on your computer and allow an analysis of your use of the website. The thus generated information about your use of our website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymization on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google beforehand 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. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide further services associated with the website use and Internet use to the operator of the website. The IP address transmitted by your Internet browser in the context of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
The data sent by us and linked with cookies, user recognition (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs will automatically be deleted after 14 months. Data whose retention period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month. Further information on data protection can be found at https://policies.google.com/privacy.

Social media integration via hyperlink

In such a case a connection to the respective platform is established. Without clicking on the link, no personal data will initially be passed to the providers of the individual social plugins when you visit this website. Only if you click on the respective social plugin data can be transferred to the content provider and been stored there. The following providers are available:
