Data Protection
The operators of these web pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection directives as well as this Data Protection Declaration.

As a rule, the use of our website is possible without disclosing personal data. Insofar as personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail addresses) are collected on our webpages, insofar as this is possible, this shall always be done upon a voluntary basis. These data shall not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

We wish to point out that the transmission of data via the Internet (e.g. during communication via e-mail) may contain security gaps. It is not possible to ensure the gapless protection of the data from third-party accesses.


The Internet pages sometimes use so-called cookies. Cookies cause no damage to your computer and contain no viruses. Cookies serve to make our offerings more user-friendly, more effective and more secure. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your computer and which your browser saves.

Most of the cookies which we use are so-called “session cookies”. They will automatically be deleted after your visit ends. Other cookies will remain saved on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser during your next visit.

We use the function "Activation of IP Anonymisation" on this website.

SSL Encryption

This website uses SSL encryption for security reasons and in order to protect the transmission of confidential contents such as, for example, inquiries which you submit to us as the operator of the website. You can recognise an encrypted connection owing to the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and owing to the lock symbol in your browser line.

When the SSL encryption has been activated, the data which you transmit to us cannot also be read by third parties.
