Personal data

Personal data is data about your person. This includes for example your name, your address and your email address. You do not have to disclose any personal data in order to visit our website.

If you contact us with inquiries or matters, we collect information that you provide to us. Therefore, please take note that you only send us personal data that we need to be able to answer your inquiry or matter or that you provide to us on a voluntary basis. If you contact us, we will save a copy of your correspondence with us.

Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1(a) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for this.

If we process personal data that is required to fulfil a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1(b) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis for this. This also applies to the processing of personal data that is required to carry out pre-contractual measures.

If personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation, the processing of this data is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1(c) of the GDPR.

If the processing of personal data is necessary to safeguard the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person, the processing of personal data takes place on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1(d) of the GDPR.

If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the person concerned do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1(f) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis for the data processing.

Duration of data storage

If you have transmitted personal data to us, we will delete the data after the purpose of saving your data has been achieved, unless this conflicts with commercial or tax law requirements.

Automatically saved non-personal data

When you visit our website, we save certain information for administrative and technical reasons. These are: the type and version of the browser used, the date and time of access and the IP address.

This data is anonymised and is only used for statistical purposes or to improve our internet and online services.

This anonymised data is stored - separately from personal data - on secure systems and cannot be attributed to any individual. This means that your personal data remains protected at all times.

Matomo software and its anonymisation function

On this website we use Matomo software (, a service from the software provider InnoCraft Ltd., 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand. The software places a cookie (a text file) on your computer which enables your browser to be recognised. When our website is accessed, the following data is stored: 1.) the user's IP address, shortened not to include the last two bytes (anonymised), 2.) the subpage accessed and the time of access, 3.) the page from which the user has been referred to our website (referrer) 4.) which browser is used with which plug-ins, which operating system and what screen resolution 5.) the time spent on the website/the sub-pages.

The data which is collected with Matomo is stored on our own servers. It is not be passed on to third parties.

We use the data to analyse the surfing behaviour of the users and to obtain information about the use of the individual components of the website. This enables us to continuously optimise the website and its user-friendliness, which is in our legitimate interest as justified in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1(f) of the GDPR. By anonymising the IP address, we take into account the interests of users in protecting personal data. The data is never used to personally identify the user of the website and is not merged with other data. The data will be deleted when it is no longer needed for our purposes.

You can object to the recording of data in the manner described above: click on your browser toolbar above to create a so-called opt-out cookie (reset cookies), which is valid for an unlimited period. As a result, Matomo will not register your further visits. Please note, however, that the opt-out cookie will be deleted if you delete all cookies.

YouTube in extended data protection mode

We integrate videos using YouTube. The videos were embedded in the extended data protection mode. Like most websites, YouTube also uses cookies to collect information about visitors to their website. YouTube uses these, among other things, to record video statistics, to avoid fraud and to improve user-friendliness. This also leads to a connection to the Google DoubleClick network. When you play the video, this may trigger further data processing activities. We have no influence on this matter. You can find further information about data protection at YouTube in their data protection declaration at:
