The information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing your inquiry and for possible follow-up questions. We process your personal data only for this purpose. Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties for any other purpose than the one stated.

When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected using a cookie. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and similar information. This is exclusively information which does not allow any conclusions about your person.  This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the contents of websites requested by you and is mandatory when using the Internet. It is processed in particular for the following purposes: 

Ensuring a trouble-free connection of the website
Ensuring smooth use of our website
Evaluation of system security and stability and for other administrative purposes.
We do not use your data to draw conclusions about your person. Recipients of the data are only the responsible body and, if applicable, processors.

Like many other websites, we also use so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files that are transferred to your hard disk by a website server. This automatically provides us with certain data such as IP address, browser used, operating system and your connection to the Internet. Cookies cannot be used to start programs or transfer viruses to a computer. We can use the information contained in cookies to make navigation easier for you and to enable our web pages to be displayed correctly. Under no circumstances will the data we collect be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.  Of course, you can always view our website without cookies. Internet browsers are regularly set to accept cookies. In general, you can deactivate the use of cookies at any time via the settings of your browser. Please use the help functions of your Internet browser to find out how to change these settings. Please note that individual functions of our website may not work if you have deactivated the use of cookies.

On our website we use Matomo (, a web analysis service of InnoCraft Ltd, 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand, ("Matomo"), which collects and stores data for optimization and marketing purposes. This data can be used to create and evaluate pseudonymous user profiles for the same purpose. Cookies may be used for this purpose (see above point 5), which are stored locally in the cache of the Internet browser of the calling up terminal device of the site visitor. Among other things, the cookies enable the recognition of the Internet browser. The data collected with Matomo technology (including the pseudonymised IP address of the calling terminal of the site visitor) are processed on our servers. The information generated by the cookie in the pseudonymous user profile is not used to personally identify the visitor of this website and is not combined with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym.  The statistical analysis of the use of the website for optimisation and marketing purposes represents a legitimate interest in the sense of the relevant legal basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

If you do not agree with the storage and evaluation of this data from your visit, you can object to the storage and use of our website at any time by clicking on the mouse. In this case, a so-called opt-out cookie is stored in the browser you are using, which means that Matomo does not collect any session data. Please note that the complete deletion of your cookies means that the opt-out cookie is also deleted and may have to be reactivated by you.

To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption procedures (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.

If you contact us by e-mail or contact form with regard to questions of any kind, the indication of a valid e-mail address is required. This serves to assign the inquiry and to answer it afterwards. The indication of further data is optional. The information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing your enquiry and for possible follow-up questions. Personal data will be automatically deleted after completion of your inquiry.

We reserve the right to adapt this data protection declaration so that it always meets the current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services. The new data protection declaration then applies to your renewed visit.

If you have any questions regarding data protection, please write us an e-mail or contact the person responsible for data protection in our organisation directly: Ms Andrea Trempel at Tel.: +49 / (0)6101 - 99 54 030, Fax: +49 / (0)6101 - 99 53 951 or by e-mail at Diese E-Mail-Adresse ist vor Spambots geschützt!
