Server Log Files

The provider of our internet pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us each time you visit our internet site. These are:

  • Browser type/Browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL (the previously visited page)
  • Host name of the accessing processor (IP address)
  • Time of the server request

When using this information, we do not draw any conclusions about individual persons. These data are not combined with other data sources.  This information is technically necessary in order to deliver the contents of our internet site correctly, to optimise the content and technology of our internet site and to ensure the long-term functionality of the systems behind it. We reserve the right to check these data subsequently if we become aware of concrete indications of an illegal use.


Some of the internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. They do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies serve to make our internet site more user-friendly.

The cookies used most often are the so-called “session cookies”. These are automatically deleted following the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your end-user device until you delete them. These cookies make it possible to recognise your browser again on your next visit.

You can set your browser in such a way that you will be informed of the setting of cookies and can only permit cookies in individual cases, can exclude accepting cookies in certain cases, or can generally activate the automatic deletion of cookies as well as on closing the browser. With the deactivation of cookies the functionality of this internet site may be restricted.

Web Analysis

To optimize our internet site, we use the open source web tracking tool Matomo (formerly “Piwik”) for statistical evaluation of user access, which is operated on our own server. Matomo uses cookies to analyze the use of the internet site.

The information generated by the cookie is used exclusively for statistical purposes and to improve the internet site and server. They are stored exclusively on our own servers; they are not passed on to third parties. Your IP address is made anonymous immediately after processing and before it is stored and cannot be traced back to you.

Objection to data storage

You can decide below whether a unique web analysis cookie may be stored to enable us to collect and analyze various statistical data. Please note: If you delete your cookies, this opt-out cookie will also be deleted and you may have to activate it again.

SSL encoding

To protect the security of data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.

Deletion or blocking of data

We store your personal data only as long as necessary to achieve the respective storage purpose or as provided for by statutory storage periods. If the purpose of storage ceases to apply or a prescribed statutory storage period expires, personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.

Your rights

You have the right to free information about your stored personal data, their origin and recipients and the purpose of data processing as well as a right to correction, blocking or deletion of these data at any time. You also have the right to ask us to restrict the processing of your personal data.

Furthermore, you have the right to receive the personal data concerning you in a structured, current and machine-readable format in order to transmit this data to another responsible person without obstruction by us or to have the data transmitted directly to the other responsible person, as far as this is technically feasible.

You also have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you, which is necessary for the protection of a public interest mission or which is carried out in the exercise of official authority, or to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if you believe that the processing of personal data concerning you is contrary to applicable law.

In case you have given your consent under data protection law, you can change or revoke this consent by notifying us accordingly with effect for the future.

You can contact us at any time at the above address if you have any further questions on the subject of personal data.
