Privacy policy

The electronic processing of your personal data is subject to the provisions of the Data Protection Act as well as other statutory regulations. Below you will find information on the data recorded upon visiting our website and how this data is used.

Data collection

Each visit to our website is logged. We primarily record the first five digits of your current IP address, the number of page views, the so-called referrer URL (the previously visited website), the date, time, and total duration of your visit, the type and version of your browser, your operating system and screen resolution as well as the provider sending the request.

In general, personal identification is neither possible nor intended as we do not create any personal user profiles.

Please note that the provision of your personal details is voluntary and that we do not accept any liability in the event of abuses committed by third parties.

Use of data and transfer to third parties, storage period

Personal data you send us via email or through a website (e.g. your name, address or email address) will exclusively be used for correspondence with you and for the purpose you intended when submitting the data. Moreover, we store your data solely for follow-up questions from your side.

We wish to point out that data transmission over the internet (e.g. when communicating via email) can pose security risks. Since complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible, we do not accept any liability in the event of abuse.

As mentioned under "Data collection", we will exclusively store and subsequently overwrite the personal data of the last 10 visitors of our website.

Personal data you send us over our website, e.g. via the contact button, is stored only until the intended purpose of their submission has been fulfilled. Please note that tax and commercial legislation may require us to store certain data for periods of up to 10 years.


Our website use so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your computer. Their purpose is to control your internet connection while visiting our websites. These files do not contain personal data but exclusively technical information.

Moreover, this privacy policy does not apply to linked websites of third parties.

Integration of third-party services and contents

This website may contain contents of third parties such as footage by Google Maps. This always assumes that the providers of these contents (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers") have access to the IP address of the website visitor. Without this address, they cannot send their contents to the browser of the respective user. Consequently, the presentation of the above contents requires an accessible IP address. We make every effort to exclusively use contents by providers who use IP addresses only for the provision of their contents. However, we cannot guarantee that third-party providers will not store our visitors' IP addresses for statistical purposes.

This website uses buttons by the micro-blogging service Twitter. These buttons are the property of Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. They are generally marked by terms such as "Twitter" and "Follow" or by a stylised bird. Visitors can use these buttons to share the contents or pages of this website on Twitter or to follow the provider on Twitter. Users who enter a page that includes one of these buttons are automatically connected to the servers of Twitter by their browser. Twitter sends the content of Twitter buttons directly to the browser of the respective user. Therefore, we as the providers of this website have no influence on the amount of data collected by Twitter by means of this plugin and can only provide information to the best of our knowledge. We assume that, upon clicking the button, only the user's IP address and the respective URL are forwarded to Twitter, and that Twitter uses this data exclusively for displaying the button. Please find additional information on this topic in Twitter's privacy policy under
