On the following pages, we inform you about the type, scope and purpose of processing your personal data within our online offer and the associated services.
1. Scope of processing of personal data
As a matter of principle, we process our users’ personal data only to the extent necessary for the provision of a functional website and our contents and services. Regular processing of our users’ personal data only takes place with the user's consent. An exception is made in cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and processing of the data is permitted by law.
2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing of personal data, Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter (a) GDPR serves as the legal basis.
When processing personal data which is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter (b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations which are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter (c) GDPR serves as the legal basis.
In cases where vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter (d) GDPR serves as the legal basis.
If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party, and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the interests of the former, Article 6 Paragraph 1 letter f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.
3. Data erasure and storage duration
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the reason for storage no longer applies. Furthermore, data may be stored if provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the data controller is subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted when a storage period prescribed by the above-mentioned standards expires, unless there is a need to continue storing the data for the purpose of concluding or fulfilling a contract.
1. Description and scope of data processing
Whenever our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the accessing computer system. The following data are collected:
- Browser type and browser version - Host name of the accessing computer - Date and time of access - IP address of the user - Referrer URL - Operating system of the user
The data is also stored on the log files of our system.
2. Legal basis for data processing
Legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter (f) GDPR.
3. Purpose of data processing
The temporary storage of the user’s IP address by the system is necessary to enable provision of the website to the user's computer. For this purpose, the user's IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session.
Storage in log files is used to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, we use the data to optimize the website and ensure the security of our information technology systems. The data is not subjected to evaluation for marketing purposes in this context.
These purposes also include our legitimate interest in data processing in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter (f) GDPR.
4. Storage duration
Data are deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary for the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this period is 14 days. In the case of storage of the data in log files, this is after one month at the latest.
5. Possibility of objection and removal
The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is essential for operation of the website, so there is no possibility of objection on the part of the user.
You can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by changing the setting correspondingly in the Internet browser used, and thus permanently objecting to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common Internet browsers. If you deactivate the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, it is possible that not all functions of our website can be used to their full extent.
2. Google analytics
We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter "Google").
Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer to help the website analyse how you use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
However, if IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google in advance within member states of the European Union or in other states which are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
On our behalf, Google will use the information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide us with further services related to website and internet use. We, in turn, use the data to analyse the use of our website - anonymously of course - and to optimize it. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google.
The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter (f) GDPR.

3. Online services on social media platforms
We offer online services on social media platforms to provide information and as a means of contacting you. We have no influence on the processing of the data by the respective platform operator. As a rule, when you visit our social media services, the platform operator stores cookies in your browser in order to register your usage behaviour or interests for market research and advertising purposes. The platform operators use the user profiles, which are usually obtained across different devices, to display personalised advertising to you. We offer our online services on the following platforms:

4. Other third-party services
Within our website, we continue to use services from third parties to optimize our Internet presence in order to integrate their content and services – such as fonts – into our website (hereinafter uniformly referred to as "Services"). This integration requires that the providers of these services process your IP address. Since this cannot be technically prevented, the processing of the IP address is therefore necessary for the use and implementation of the Services. We always endeavour to use only those services whose respective providers process the IP address solely for the direct provision of the services. Third party providers may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as "web beacons") for statistical or marketing purposes. The "web beacons" can be used to examine and evaluate a variety of information, such as the visit to our website. In pseudonymized form, information can also be stored in cookies on your end device, which enables the processing of technical information about your browser and operating system used, linked websites, visit time and other information about the use of our website.
The legal basis for this processing of the transmitted data is Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter (f) GDPR. The services which may be used are:
If you contact us (e.g. by e-mail, contact form or telephone), your personal data will be processed for the purpose of handling and processing the contact request.
The legal basis for this processing of the transmitted personal data is Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter (b) GDPR. If health data are concerned, the legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter (b) GDPR in conjunction with Art. 9 Para. 2 Letter (h) GDPR and Art. 22 Para. 1 no. 1 Letter (b). Federal Data Protection Act.
We delete these data as soon as they are no longer necessary for the purpose of their collection, i.e. regularly when the respective conversation with you has ended. The conversation ends when the relevant facts have been finally clarified. Otherwise the legal retention periods apply.
