Collection of general information when you visit our website

The nature and purpose of the processing:

If you access our website, i. e. if you do not register or otherwise submit details, information of a general nature is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider, your IP address and the like. 

In particular, it is processed for the following purposes:

  • to ensure the trouble-free connection to the website, 
  • to ensure the smooth use of our website, 
  • to evaluate the system safety and stability, as well as 
  • for other administrative purposes. 

We do not use your data to draw conclusions about your person. We evaluate statistically information of this kind if necessary, in order to optimize our website and the technology behind it.


Legal bases:

Processing is carried out in accordance with art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website. 



Recipients of the data may be technical service providers who act as contract processors for the operation and maintenance of our website. 


Duration of storage:

The data are deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose of collection. This is generally the case for the data used to provide the website when the respective session has ended.


Provision prescribed by law or otherwise required:

The provision of the afore-mentioned personal data is neither required by law nor by contract. Without the IP address, however, the service and functionality of our website cannot be guaranteed. In addition, individual services may not be available or restricted. For this reason, a contradiction is excluded. 


Contact form

The nature and purpose of the processing:

The data you enter will be stored for the purpose of individual communication with you. For this purpose, it is necessary to provide a valid e-mail address and your name. This is used to assign the enquiry and then reply to it. The specification of further data is optional. 


Legal bases:

The data entered in the contact form are processed on the basis of a legitimate interest (art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). By providing the contact form, we would like to make it easy for you to contact us. The information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing your enquiry and for possible follow-up questions. If you contact us to request an offer, the data entered in the contact form will be processed for the purpose of implementing pre-contractual measures (art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR). 



Recipients of the data are employees working on the processing and, if necessary, contract processors. 


Duration of storage:

Data will be deleted at the latest six months after processing the enquiry. If it comes to a contractual relationship, we are subject to the legal retention periods in accordance with the German Commercial Code (HGB) and delete your data after expiry of these periods. 


Provision prescribed by law or otherwise required:

The provision of your personal data is voluntary. However, we can only process your request if you provide us with your name, e-mail address and the reason for the request. 


Use of Google Maps

The nature and purpose of the processing:

On this website, we use the offer of Google Maps. Google Maps is operated by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter referred to as "Google"). This enables us to display interactive maps directly on the website and enables you to use the map function conveniently. For more information about data processing by Google, please refer to the Google Data Privacy Notice. There you can also change your personal data privacy settings in the data privacy centre. Detailed instructions on how to manage your own data related to Google products are available here. 


Legal bases:

The legal basis for the integration of Google Maps and the associated data transfer to Google is your consent (art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). 



When you visit the website, Google receives information that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our website. This occurs regardless of whether Google provides a user account that you are logged in to or whether there is no user account. When you are logged in to Google, your information will be directly associated with your account. If you do not want the assignment in your Google profile, you must log out of Google before activating the button. Google stores your data as user profiles and uses them for advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide demand-oriented advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and you must contact Google to exercise this right. 


Duration of storage:

We do not collect any personal data through the integration of Google Maps.


Third country transfer:

Google processes your data in the USA and has submitted to the EU_US Privacy Shield 


Revocation of consent:

If you do not want Google to collect, process or use data about you via our website, you can deactivate JavaScript in your browser settings. In this case, however, you will not be able to use our website, or only to a limited extent. 


Provision prescribed by law or otherwise required:

The provision of your personal data is voluntary, solely based on your consent. If you block access, this may result in functional restrictions on the website. 


Use of YouTube

We use the platform to post our own videos and make them publicly available. YouTube is the offer of a third party not affiliated with us, namely YouTube LLC.

Some internet pages of our offer contain links or connections to the offer of YouTube. In general, we are not responsible for the content of websites that are linked to. In case you follow a link on YouTube, we would like to point out that YouTube stores the data of its users (e.g. personal information, IP address) in accordance with its own data usage guidelines and uses it for business purposes.

We also include videos stored on YouTube directly on some of our websites. With this integration, content of the YouTube website is displayed in parts of a browser window. However, the YouTube videos are only accessed by clicking them separately. This technique is also called "framing". If you call up a (sub) page of our website on which YouTube videos are integrated in this form, a connection to the YouTube servers is established and the content is displayed on the website by notifying your browser.

The integration of YouTube content takes place only in the "extended data protection mode". YouTube provides this itself, thereby ensuring that YouTube does not initially store any cookies on your device. When you visit the relevant pages, however, the IP address and other data are transmitted and, in particular, you are informed of which of our Internet pages you have visited. However, this information cannot be assigned to you unless you have logged in to YouTube or another Google service (e.g. Google+) or are permanently logged in before accessing the page.

As soon as you start playing an integrated video by clicking on it, YouTube only saves cookies on your device that do not contain any personally identifiable data, unless you are currently logged into a Google service. These cookies can be prevented by appropriate browser settings and extensions.

SSL Encryption

In order to protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption procedures (e. g. SSL) via HTTPS. 


Changes to our privacy policy

We reserve the right to adapt this Data Privacy Statement so that it always corresponds to the current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the Data Privacy Statement, e. g. when introducing new services. Your renewed visit will then be subject to the new Data Privacy Statement.
