This Data Protection Statements provides users with information on the type and scope of, and the purpose for which, their data will be collected and used by the responsible provider.

The legal framework for data protection is the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the German Telemedia Act (TMG).

Collection of general information

Every time this offer is accessed, information will be automatically collected by us or the web space provider. This information, also referred to as server log files, is of a general nature and does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person.

Among other things, the following information will be collected: name of the website, file, date, amount of data, web browser and web browser version, operating system, the domain name of your internet provider, the so-called referrer URL (the page from which you accessed our offer) and the IP address.

Without this data it would, from the technical point of view, be partially not possible to deliver and display the contents of the website. In this respect, the collection of this data is absolutely necessary. In addition, we use the anonymous information for statistical purposes. They help us to optimise our website and the technology. We also reserve the right subsequently to check the log files if illegal use of our offer is suspected.

Dealing with personal data

Definition: Personal data is any information that unambiguously identifies a person. It is therefore data that can be traced back to a person.

This personal data includes the first name and surname, telephone number and e-mail address. Information on hobbies, memberships and preferences as well as Internet pages that have been accessed are also considered to be personal data.

This data will be collected, used and, if necessary, passed on by the provider only if this is expressly permitted by law or if the user consents to the data collected, processed, used and passed on.


This website uses so-called cookies. These are text files that are stored on your computer from the server. They contain information about the browser, IP address, operating system and internet connection. We do not pass this data on to third parties or link it to personal data without your consent.

Cookies fulfil two main tasks. They help us to make it easier for you to navigate through our website and enable the website to be displayed correctly. They are not used to introduce viruses or to launch programmes.

Users have the option of accessing our website without cookies. To do this, the appropriate settings must be changed in your browser. Please use the help function of your browser to find out how to deactivate cookies. However, we would like to point out that this may impair some of the functions of this website and reduce user comfort. The (USA) and (Europe) sites allow you to manage online ad cookies.

Embedded content from other websites

Posts on this website may contain embedded content (e.g. videos, pictures and articles, etc.). The effect of embedded content from other websites is exactly the same as if our user had visited the other website.

These websites may collect information about you, use cookies, embed additional third party tracking services and record your interaction with this embedded content, including your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged into this website.

Your rights to information, correction, blocking, deletion and objection

You have the right to request, free of charge, information about the personal data stored by us and/or to require that it be corrected, blocked or deleted. This will not apply to prescribed data storage for completing business transactions or if we are legally required to retain the data.

In this connection, please contact our Data Protection Officer – their contact details are at the beginning of this Data Protection Statement.

In order to be able to block data at any time, it is necessary for control purposes to keep the data in a blocking file. If there is no legal archiving obligation, you can also request the deletion of this data. Otherwise, we will block the data if you so wish.

Changes to our Data Protection Statement

In order to ensure that our Data Protection Statement always complies with current legal requirements, we reserve the right to make changes at any time. This also applies if this Data Protection Statement has to be amended because of, for example, new or revised services. The new Data Protection Statement will then apply the next time you visit our website.
