Data protection

In general, it is possible to use our website without providing personal data. Insofar as personal data (e.g. name, address, or e-mail addresses) is collected on our pages, this is always done, as far as possible, on a voluntary basis.

Personal data will only be requested, processed, and used to the extent necessary to provide the services requested by you or to make content available.
Personal data is only collected, stored or processed for our own business purposes. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your explicit consent.

We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security vulnerabilities. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Collection of general data

When you access our website, data of a general character is automatically collected. This data (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, IP address and domain name of your Internet service provider and the like. This is exclusively data that does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person. This data is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the content of web pages requested by you and is mandatory when using the Internet.

Data of this kind is statistically evaluated by us in order to optimize our Internet presence and the technology behind it. We do not combine this data with other data sources. We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively if we become aware of concrete indications of illegal use.


Like many other websites, we use so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on the device you are using. This automatically provides us with certain data, such as your IP address, the browser you are using, your computer’s operating system and your connection to the Internet. Among other things, this data enables us to make your visit to our website more comfortable and secure.

SSL encryption

You can recognize an encrypted connection by the lock symbol and the indication “https://” in the address line of your browser.

If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Use of LinkedIn

We use the LinkedIn Insight Tag of the company LinkedIn on our website.

This involves the use of so-called “web beacons” and “cookies” which are stored on your computer.

The LinkedIn Insight Tag is a JavaScript code that sends data about your interactions on our website, such as visited URLs, referrer URLs, IP address, timestamp, device and browser properties, and page views to LinkedIn.

Use of Google Maps

This website uses the Google Maps API to visually display geographic information. When using Google Maps, Google also collects and processes data about visitors’ use of the map functions. You can find more information about data processing by Google in the Google privacy policy. There you can also change your personal privacy settings in the Privacy Center.

Detailed instructions on managing your own data in connection with Google products can be found here.

Embedded YouTube videos

On some of our websites, we embed YouTube videos. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection to YouTube servers is established. This tells Youtube which pages you are visiting. If you are logged into your Youtube account, Youtube can attribute your surfing behavior to you individually. You can prevent this by logging out of your Youtube account beforehand.

If a Youtube video is started, the provider uses cookies that collect information about user behavior.

If you have deactivated the storage of cookies for the Google Ad program, you will not have to deal with such cookies when watching Youtube videos. However, Youtube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you would like to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in the browser.

For more information on data protection on Youtube, please refer to the provider’s privacy policy.

Your rights to information, correction, blocking, deletion, and objection

You have the right to obtain information about your personal data stored by us at any time. Likewise, you have the right to have your personal data corrected, blocked or, apart from the mandatory data storage for business processing, deleted. Please contact our data protection officer for this purpose. You will find the contact details at the bottom of this page.

To ensure that a block of data can be taken into account at any time, this data must be kept in a blocking file for control purposes. You can also request that the data be deleted unless there is a legal obligation to archive the data. If such an obligation exists, we will block your data upon request.

You can make changes or revoke consent by notifying us accordingly with effect in the future.

Right of complaint to a supervisory authority

You may submit a complaint to a supervisory authority at any time, e.g. to the responsible supervisory authority in the federal state of your residence or to the authority responsible for us as the responsible body.
You can find a list of supervisory authorities (for the non-public sector) with address here.

Changes to our privacy policy

We reserve the right to occasionally adapt this privacy policy to ensure that it always complies with the current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the privacy policy, e.g. when introducing new services. The new data protection statement will then apply to your next visit.
