Scope of application

This privacy policy provides users with information about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of their data by the responsible provider.
The legal framework for data protection is provided by the Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz; BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz; TMG).

Collecting general information

Each time this website is accessed, information is automatically collected by us or the web space provider. This information, also known as server log files, is of a general nature and does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person.
The information collected includes: name of the website, file, date, data volume, web browser and web browser version, operating system, the domain name of your internet provider, the referrer URL (the page from which you accessed our website) and the IP address.

Without this data, it would technically be impossible to deliver and display the content of the website in some cases. Therefore, the collection of data is absolutely necessary. We also use this anonymous information for statistical purposes. It helps us to optimise our website and technology. We also reserve the right to check the log files retrospectively if we suspect illegal use of our website.

Comment function

If comments or other written contributions are published on our website, we store the IP address, the username, and the time of creation. This data is collected for security reasons, as the provider can be prosecuted for illegal content (prohibited propaganda, insults, etc.), even if it was created by a third party. In such a case, the information is used to determine the identity of the author.

Contact form

If you contact us via the online form or by email, we will store the information you provide to be able to answer your enquiry and ask follow-up questions.

Integration of third-party services and content

Our website sometimes includes third-party content and services, e.g., maps provided by Google Maps, videos from YouTube and graphics and images from other websites. To access and display this data in the user's browser, the transmission of the IP address is mandatory. The providers (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers") therefore recognise the IP address of the respective user.
Even if we try to only use third-party providers who only need the IP address to be able to deliver content, we have no influence on whether the IP address may be stored. In this case, this process is used for statistical purposes, among other things. If we are aware that the IP address is stored, we will inform our users accordingly.


This website uses cookies, which are text files that are stored on your computer by the server. They contain information about your browser, IP address, operating system, and internet connection. We do not pass this data on to third parties or link it to personal data without your consent.

Please use the help function of your browser to find out how to deactivate cookies. However, we would like to point out that this may impair some of the functions of this website and limit the ease of use.

Data minimisation

In accordance with the principles of data avoidance and data minimisation, we only store personal data for as long as is necessary or prescribed by law (statutory retention period). If the purpose of the information collected no longer applies or if the storage period ends, we block or delete the data.

Rights of the data subject

You have the right to request information about the personal data stored by us free of charge and/or to request that it be rectified, blocked, or deleted. Exceptions: data storage is required for business transactions, or the data is subject to statutory retention obligations.
For these purposes, please contact our data protection officer (contact details: at the beginning of the data privacy notice).
In order to be able to take a data lock into account at any time, it is necessary to keep the data in a lock file for control purposes. If there is no legal archiving obligation, you can also request the deletion of the data. Otherwise, we will block the data if you so wish.

Changes to our data privacy notice

To ensure that our privacy policy always complies with current legal requirements, we reserve the right to make changes at any time. This also applies if the privacy notice has to be amended due to new or revised services. The new privacy notice will then apply the next time you visit our website.
