Liability for content
As a service provider, we are responsible for our content on these pages according to the general laws pursuant to § 7 para.1 TMG. However, according to §§ 8 to 10 TMG, as a service provider, we are not obligated to supervise transmitted or stored third-party information or to investigate circumstances which indicate an illegal activity.
Obligations to remove or block the use of information according to general laws remain unaffected. Liability in this regard, however, is only possible from the time of knowledge of a concrete violation. We will immediately remove these contents if we become aware of any such legal violations.
Liability for links
Our site contains links to external third-party websites on whose content we have no influence. Therefore, we cannot assume liability for third-party content. The respective provider or operator of the pages is always responsible for the contents of the linked pages. The linked pages were checked for possible legal violations at the time of linking. Illegal contents were not recognizable at the time of linking.
A permanent control of the content of the linked pages is not reasonable without concrete indications of a violation. If we become aware of any legal infringements, we will immediately remove such links.

Which data is stored in cookies and for what purpose?
Cookies are small text files saved to your computer by your browser – the computer program used to display web pages – whenever you use our website. Every time you access our website, your browser automatically sends cookies to our web server. Cookies store various pieces of information, which are used for different purposes:
- Some of the information stored is necessary for the website’s technical functionality; it allows your web browser to identify our website even when navigating from page to page within the site. These cookies are usually deleted at the latest when the browser window is closed (session cookies).
- Cookies can also contain a sequence of characters that uniquely identifies your browser. This information is used, for example, to analyze your use of our website over a longer period of time (web analytics or tracking cookies).
Cookies serve to make our website fully functional, user-friendly and effective, which is our legitimate interest in processing your data. The legal basis for processing your personal data using cookies is Article 6, Paragraph 1, Point (f) of the General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR). Your data, which we collect using cookies, is masked using technical precautions, after which the data can no longer be assigned to you. The data is not stored together with any other personally identifying data. This takes your interests into sufficient account in the protection of your data.
Cookies are stored on your computer, which means you have complete control over their use. By changing the settings in your internet browser, you can disable or restrict the transmission of cookies. Cookies that have been saved can be deleted at any time. You can also set cookies to be deleted automatically. If you disable cookies for our website, you may not be able to use all of our website features in full.
Why do we process your data (purpose of processing) and on what legal basis?
Operation and security
Every time you visit our site, our system automatically collects data and information from your computer. We collect the following data:
- IP address, in which the last two digits (bytes) are truncated; for example, the IP address 126.96.36.199 becomes 188.8.131.52
- Browser type and version
- Operating system
- Internet service provider
- Date and time of access
- Websites from which you access our website
- Websites that you access via links on our website
The data is stored by our system (server log files, log files). This data is not stored alongside other personally identifying data.
Data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, this data is used to optimize the website and ensure the security of our information technology systems. In this context, the data is not evaluated for marketing purposes. Data stored in log files is deleted after no more than seven days. The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Article 6, Paragraph 1, Point (f) of the EU-GDPR.
Data collection for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is essential for the secure operation of the website, inspection of security incidents and correction of errors.
Web analytics (Google Analytics)
In its default setting, the information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is automatically transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there. To avoid this, our website uses the “_anonymizeIp ()” extension from Google Analytics. As a result, IP addresses within European Union Member States or other parties in the Agreement on the European Economic Area are truncated before being transferred to the United States. This means that no connection can be made between you and your IP address. Full IP addresses are transmitted to a Google server in the United States and truncated there only in exceptional circumstances, such as in the case of technical failures in Europe. In cases such as these, Google has adopted the EU-US Privacy Shield (https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework, https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).
Insofar as any data collected about you can be associated with you personally, this is immediately negated by the truncation of the IP address, which deletes any personally identifiable data.
Google uses the information collected on our behalf to evaluate your use of our website, compile reports on user activity on our website and provide additional services related to the use of our website and the internet with respect to the website operator. We use these evaluations, reports and statistics to regularly improve our website and optimize it according to our users’ needs. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Article 6, Paragraph 1, Point (f) of the EU-GDPR. The masking (anonymization) of IP addresses takes your interests into sufficient account in the protection of your personal data.
You can disable the storage of cookies by changing the preference settings in your browser; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use all the features of this website to the fullest possible extent.
You can disable Google’s collection of cookie-generated data related to your use of the website (including your IP address) as well as Google’s processing of this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de or by clicking on the following link to set a cookie informing Google Analytics not to collect your data the next time you visit the site: deactivate Google Analytics Tracking.
The user and event data stored by Google Analytics is deleted as soon as it is no longer needed for our recording purposes. In our case, this occurs after 14 months.
Third-party information: Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, Fax: +353 (1) 436 1001.
This website also uses Google Analytics for cross-device analysis of visitor traffic. This is conducted in conjunction with a user ID. You can disable cross-device analysis of your usage in your Google Account under “My Data” -> “Personal Information.”
Which third parties are privy to your personal information?
For the provision of the website, we work together with so-called “processors” in accordance with Article 28 of the EU-GDPR. These provide certain services, such as IT for the operation of the website (web host) and development, maintenance and care of the website. In accordance with their contractual obligations, processors are not allowed to process your data for their own purposes.
This website includes content and services from other providers that improve your user experience, such as fonts. These may be retrieved directly from the third-party computers/servers when you view them, at which point they may obtain information about your computer’s unique IP address and other information about your computer that is required for transmission. When you visit a subpage of our website with linked content or third-party services, these third parties will be informed about your visit to said subpage. If you are logged in to the provider’s site with your user account at the time of the visit, it can be traced back to your user account and, in addition, to you personally.
The legal basis for the transmission and processing of your data in this instance is Article 6, Paragraph 1, Point (f) of the EU-GDPR, whereby we have a legitimate interest in providing you with the content and services of the provider in a simple and direct way on our website.
We may include the following offers from Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, in our website:
- Fonts from “Google Fonts”
Google has adopted the EU-US Privacy Shield (https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework), which guarantees that it will honor the European Data Protection Regulation (see https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

Where processing of your personal data has been restricted, such personal data shall, with the exception of storage, only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or of a Member State.
If processing has been restricted due to any of the conditions listed above, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction of processing is lifted.
Right to erasure
Obligation of erasure
You have the right to obtain from the controller the erasure of your personal data without undue delay, and the controller shall have the obligation to erase personal data without undue delay where one of the following applies:

Where the controller has made your personal data public and is obliged to erase it pursuant to Article 17, Paragraph 1 of the EU-GDPR, the controller, taking available technology and the cost of implementation into account, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform any controllers who are processing your personal data that you have requested the erasure of any links to or copy or replication of, said personal data.
The right to erasure does not apply to the extent that processing is necessary for:

Right to notification
If you have made use of your right to rectification, erasure or restriction of the processing of your personal data, the controller is obligated to notify all recipients to whom your personal data has been disclosed of the rectification, erasure or restriction of the processing of your personal data, unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort.
You have the right to be informed about these recipients by the controller.
Right to object
You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your personal situation, to the processing of your personal data based on Article 6, Paragraph 1, Points (e) or (f) of the EU-GDPR, including profiling based on those provisions.

Where your personal data is processed for marketing purposes, you have the right to object to such processing at any time. This includes profiling to the extent that it is related to direct marketing.
Should you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, your personal data shall no longer be processed for such purposes.
Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
Irrespective of any other administrative or redress procedure, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State in which you reside, work or in which the infringement occurred, if you believe that the processing of your personal data has infringed upon the EU-GDPR.
The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been submitted shall inform you of the status and results of the complaint, including the possibility of a redress procedure according to Article 78 of the EU-GDPR.
