Automatically saved IP-address

The protection of your privacy is extremely important to us. Our web content is therefore designed fundamentally so that it can be used anonymously. This website transfers requested web content to your IP-address. An IP-address is a personal data. So your IP-Address is only used for requested web content transfer and will not be saved. For statistical reasons and to detect errors, your IP-address will be anonymized and stored in a log file along with access date and time for seven days. To these anonymized information, the requested URL, the referrer URL, an error code, the used browser and operation system will be added.

● time and date of the request

● transferred amount of data

Mentioned protocol data is just saved anonymized and will be deleted after one year.

We use a Twitter Feed plugin to display social media content on our website. As a result, our website makes requests to Twitter’s servers in order to display images and videos.

Read more about the personalization across your devices and browsers and check your settings!

Furthermore, the Tweets displayed in the Twitter feed include the ability to Reply, Share, or Like the Tweet directly on our website.

Analysis of usage data & use of analysis tools

We would like to tailor the content of our websites as precisely as possible to your interests and in this way improve our offer for you. In order to identify usage preferences and particularly popular areas of the websites, we use the analysis tool "Google Analytics" to save and analyse data from our website and YouTube Channel.

● When using this analysis tool, data may be transferred to servers located in the USA and processed there. Please note the following: In the USA, the European Union considers that there is no "adequate level of protection" for the processing of personal data in accordance with EU standards. However, this level of protection can be replaced for individual companies by certification according to the so-called "EU-U.S. Privacy Shield".

● If you do not want us to collect and analyze information about your visit to our website using the analysis tool mentioned above, you can object to this at any time with effect for the future ("opt-out").

We implement your objection by setting an opt-out cookie in your browser. This cookie is only used to associate your objection.
