2. General information and mandatory information Data protection

The operators of this website take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data as confidential and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations
and this privacy policy.
If you use this website, various pieces of personal data will be collected. Personal information is any data with which you could be personally identified. This privacy policy explains what
information we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this happens.
Please note that data transmitted via the internet (e.g. via email communication) may be subject to
security breaches. Complete protection of your data from third-party access is not possible. Revocation of your consent to the processing of your data
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You may revoke your consent at any time with future effect. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The
data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.

SSL or TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and for the protection of the transmission of confidential content, such as the inquiries you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize
an encrypted connection in your browser's address line when it changes from "http://" to "https://" and the lock icon is displayed in your browser's address bar.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties. Information, blocking, deletion

notice requirements with regard to sending promotional and informational materials not expressly requested. The website operator reserves the right to take specific legal action if unsolicited
advertising material, such as email spam, is received.

3. Data collection on our website

Server log files
The website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us in "server log files". These are:
Browser type and browser version
Operating system used Referrer URL
Host name of the accessing computer
Time of the server request IP address
These data will not be combined with data from other sources.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract.

Contact form
Should you send us questions via the contact form, we will collect the data entered on the form, including the contact details you provide, to answer your question and any follow-up questions. We
do not share this information without your permission.
We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art.

6 (1)(a) DSGVO.
You may revoke your consent at any time. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.
We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your
consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer pertains (e.g. after fulfilling your
request). Any mandatory statutory provisions, especially those regarding mandatory data retention
periods, remain unaffected by this provision.

4. Analytics and advertising
Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service. It is operated by Google Inc., 1600
Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer
and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the
cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and
stored there. Google Analytics cookies are stored based on Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. The website operator has a
legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior to optimize both its website and its advertising.

IP anonymization
We have activated the IP anonymization feature on this website. Your IP address will be shortened
by Google within the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic
Area prior to transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address sent
to a Google server in the US and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the
operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity,
and to provide other services regarding website activity and Internet usage for the website
operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be
merged with any other data held by Google.

Browser plugin
You can prevent these cookies being stored by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser.
However, we wish to point out that doing so may mean you will not be able to enjoy the full
functionality of this website. You can also prevent the data generated by cookies about your use of
the website (incl. your IP address) from being passed to Google, and the processing of these data
by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link:

Outsourced data processing
We have entered into an agreement with Google for the outsourcing of our data processing and
fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using
Google Analytics.
Demographic data collection by Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics' demographic features. This allows reports to be generated
containing statements about the age, gender, and interests of site visitors. This data comes from
interest-based advertising from Google and third-party visitor data. This collected data cannot be
attributed to any specific individual person. You can disable this feature at any time by adjusting the
ads settings in your Google account or you can forbid the collection of your data by Google
Analytics as described in the section "Refusal of data collection".
Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking
This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program from Google Inc.,
1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("Google").
As part of Google AdWords, we use so-called conversion tracking. When you click on an ad served
by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is set. Cookies are small text files that your internet
browser stores on your computer. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for
personal identification of the user. Should the user visit certain pages of the website and the cookie
has not yet expired, Google and the website can tell that the user clicked on the ad and proceeded
to that page.
Each Google AdWords advertiser has a different cookie. Thus, cookies cannot be tracked using the
website of an AdWords advertiser. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to
create conversion statistics for the AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking.
Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a
conversion tracking tag page. However, advertisers do not obtain any information that can be used
to personally identify users. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can opt-out of this by
easily disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie by changing your browser settings. In
doing so, you will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
Conversion cookies are stored based on Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. The website operator has a
legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior to optimize both its website and its advertising.
For more information about Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking, see the Google
Privacy Policy: https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/.
You can configure your browser to inform you about the use of cookies so that you can decide on a
caseby-case basis whether to accept or reject a cookie. Alternatively, your browser can be
configured to automatically accept cookies under certain conditions or to always reject them, or to
automatically delete cookies when closing your browser. Disabling cookies may limit the
functionality of this website.

5. Plugins and tools
Google Maps
This site uses the Google Maps map service via an API. It is operated by Google Inc., 1600
Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
To use Google Maps, it is necessary to save your IP address. This information is generally
transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no
influence on this data transfer. The use of Google Maps is in the interest of making our website
appealing and to facilitate the location of places specified by us on the website. This constitutes a
justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.
