1. processing of personal data
In principle, we only obtain personal data from you if you provide it to us of your own accord. This may be the case, for example, if you transmit your data to us in a survey, when registering for personal services, when making a request for information material or similar. The data you voluntarily transmit to us will then only be processed within the EU and only for the purposes stated in section 3.
Use of our contact form
For questions of any kind, we offer you the opportunity to contact us via a form provided on the website. In doing so, it is necessary to provide a valid e-mail address so that we know from whom the inquiry originates and so that we can answer it. Further information can be provided voluntarily. Data processing for the purpose of contacting us is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO on the basis of your voluntarily given consent. The personal data collected by us for the use of the contact form will be deleted after completion of your request, provided that the deletion is not contrary to any retention obligations.
In order to always provide you with current information on various topics, we offer a newsletter for different areas. If you register for this, your name and e-mail address will be used exclusively for sending. Your data will not be passed on to third parties for other purposes. Your data will be stored for this purpose until you revoke your consent or until the current information can no longer be delivered to the e-mail address you provided.
2. disclosure of your personal data
Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties for purposes other than those listed below.
We only process your data or pass it on to third parties if:
- you have given your express consent to this in accordance with Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a DSGVO. If such consent has been given, you have the right to revoke it at any time without affecting the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.
- the processing or disclosure is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DSGVO and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in not disclosing your data. Such purposes may be: Defense of liability claims; statistical surveys and business evaluations.
- in the event that there is a legal obligation for the processing or disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1lit. c DSGVO, as well as
- this is legally permissible and necessary according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DSGVO for the processing of contractual relationships with you.
3. links to third party pages
Our online offer contains links to websites of other providers. We have no influence on whether these providers comply with the statutory data protection provisions. You should therefore always check the data protection declarations offered. In the course of the further development of Internet pages and the implementation of new technologies, changes to these data protection declarations may also become necessary. We therefore recommend that you regularly reread this data protection declaration.
4. cookies: these data are processed when you visit our website
Most browsers accept cookies automatically. You can prevent cookies from being stored by setting this in your browser preferences.
We offer you the option of informed consent. You decide for yourself which cookie categories you would like to agree to. To enable you to define your preferences with regard to data protection settings, we inform you here about the categories of cookies that are used on our websites. Please bear in mind that, depending on your selection, not all functions of our website may be available to you.
Under the categories listed, you will find the respective recipients of the data collected by the cookies.
Cookies are used on our websites, which store data for technical session control in the memory of your browser. This data is deleted when you close your browser.
Category: Web Statistics (Anonymous Data Collection and Processing)
Likewise, it is generally possible for us to recognize the website from which you reach us and the web pages that you visit on our website. This information can be evaluated for statistical purposes, whereby the individual user naturally remains anonymous.
Every time the website of the responsible party is accessed, i.e. every time a file on this server is retrieved or attempted to be retrieved, data is stored in a log file.
In detail, the following data record is stored about each retrieval:
Name of the retrieved file
Date and time of retrieval
Data volume transferred
Message whether the retrieval was successful
Message why a retrieval has failed, if applicable
Operating system and browser software of your computer
Website from which you visit us
The legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Our legitimate interest follows from the purposes for data collection listed above. In no case do we use the collected data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person.
This information may also be transferred to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on our behalf.
In no case will your IP address be merged with other data. The IP addresses are anonymized so that an assignment is not possible (IP masking).
You can decide whether a unique web analytics cookie may be placed in your browser to enable the website operator to collect and analyze various statistical data.
You can change your personal settings at any time via the Cookie Settings button in the footer of our websites and update them by reloading the page.

We use these cookies to provide you with better information and to make our website easier to use.
Our website uses Google Maps to display interactive maps for location searches and to create directions. Google Maps is a map service provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California 94043, USA. By using Google Maps, information about the use of this website, including your IP address and the (start) address entered as part of the route planner function, may be transmitted to Google in the USA. When you call up a web page on our website that contains Google Maps, your browser establishes a direct connection with Google’s servers. The map content is transmitted by Google directly to your browser, which then integrates it into the website. Therefore, we have no influence on the scope of the data collected by Google in this way. According to our knowledge, this is at least the following data:
Date and time of the visit to the website in question,
Internet address or URL of the accessed web page,
IP address, (start) address entered as part of route planning.
We have no influence on the further processing and use of the data by Google and therefore cannot assume any responsibility for this.
Our website uses plugins from the YouTube site operated by Google. The operator of the pages is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
When you visit one of our pages equipped with a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited.
If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
YouTube is used in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
Contact form/ reCAPTCHA
What is reCAPTCHA?
Why do we use reCAPTCHA on our website?
We only want to welcome flesh and blood people to our site. Bots or spam software of any kind may confidently stay at home. That’s why we pull out all the stops to protect ourselves and offer the best possible user experience for you. For this reason we use Google reCAPTCHA from Google. This way we can be pretty sure that we remain a “bot-free” website. By using reCAPTCHA, data is sent to Google to determine whether you are actually human. reCAPTCHA therefore serves the security of our website and, by extension, your security. For example, without reCAPTCHA, it could happen that a bot registers as many e-mail addresses as possible during registration in order to “spam” forums or blogs with unwanted advertising content. With reCAPTCHA we can avoid such bot attacks.
What data is stored by reCAPTCHA?
reCAPTCHA collects personal data from users to determine whether the actions on our website really come from people. Thus, the IP address and other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service may be sent to Google. IP addresses are almost always shortened beforehand within the member states of the EU or other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before the data ends up on a server in the USA. The IP address is not combined with other data from Google unless you are logged in with your Google account while using reCAPTCHA. First, the reCAPTCHA algorithm checks whether Google cookies from other Google services (YouTube. Gmail, etc.) are already placed on your browser. Then, reCAPTCHA places an additional cookie on your browser and collects a snapshot of your browser window.
The following list of collected browser and user data, does not claim to be exhaustive. Rather, it is examples of data that, to our knowledge, Google processes.
Referrer URL (the address of the page from which the visitor came)
IP address (e.g. 222.214.171.124)
Information about the operating system (the software that enables the operation of your computer. Known operating systems are Windows, Mac OS X or Linux)
Cookies (small text files that store data in your browser)
Mouse and keyboard behavior (every action you perform with the mouse or keyboard is stored)
Date and language settings (which language or date you have preset on your PC is saved)
Screen resolution (shows how many pixels the image display consists of)
It is undisputed that Google uses and analyzes this data even before you click on the “I am not a robot” checkbox. With the Invisible reCAPTCHA version even the ticking is omitted and the whole recognition process runs in the background. How much and which data Google stores exactly, Google does not tell you in detail.
The following cookies are used by reCAPTCHA: Here we refer to the reCAPTCHA demo version from Google at https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api2/demo. All these cookies require a unique identifier for tracking purposes. Here is a list of cookies that Google reCAPTCHA has set on the demo version:
Purpose: This cookie is set by the DoubleClick company (also owned by Google) to register and report a user’s actions on the website in dealing with advertisements. In this way, advertising effectiveness can be measured and appropriate optimization measures can be taken. IDE is stored in browsers under the domain doubleclick.net.
Expiration date: after one year
Purpose: This cookie collects statistics on website usage and measures conversions. A conversion occurs, for example, when a user becomes a buyer. The cookie is also used to display relevant advertisements to users. Furthermore, the cookie can be used to prevent a user from seeing the same ad more than once.
Expiration date: after one month
Expiration date: after 9 months
Purpose: The cookie stores the status of a user’s consent to use different services provided by Google. CONSENT is also used for security purposes to verify users, prevent credential fraud, and protect user data from unauthorized attacks.
Expiration date: after 19 years
Purpose: NID is used by Google to customize ads to your Google search. With the help of the cookie, Google “remembers” your most typed search queries or your previous interaction with ads. This way, you always get tailored ads. The cookie contains a unique ID to collect personal settings of the user for advertising purposes.
Expiration date: after 6 months
Purpose: Once you have checked the “I am not a robot” box, this cookie will be set. The cookie is used by Google Analytics for personalized advertising. DV collects information in anonymous form and is further used to make user distinctions.
Expiration date: after 10 minutes
Note: This list cannot claim to be exhaustive, as Google’s experience has shown that the choice of cookies is always subject to change.
How long and where is the data stored?
By inserting reCAPTCHA, data is transferred from you to the Google server. Where exactly this data is stored, Google does not make clear, even after repeated inquiries. Without having received confirmation from Google, it can be assumed that data such as mouse interaction, time spent on the website or language settings are stored on Google’s European or American servers. The IP address that your browser transmits to Google is generally not merged with other Google data from other Google services. However, if you are logged into your Google account while using the reCAPTCHA plug-in, the data will be merged. The deviating data protection provisions of the Google company apply to this.
How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?
If you do not want any data about you and your behavior to be transmitted to Google, you must log out of Google completely and delete all Google cookies before you visit our website or use the reCAPTCHA software. Basically, as soon as you visit our site, the data is automatically transmitted to Google. To delete this data again, you must contact Google support at https://support.google.com/?hl=de&tid=312023807.
So, when you use our website, you agree that Google LLC and its agents automatically collect, process and use data.
Please note that when you use this tool, data about you may be stored and processed outside the EU. Most third countries (including the USA) are not considered secure under current European data protection law. Data to insecure third countries may therefore not simply be transferred, stored and processed there unless there are suitable safeguards (such as EU standard contractual clauses) between us and the non-European service provider.
If you have consented to Google reCAPTCHA being used, the legal basis for the corresponding data processing is this consent. According to Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO (consent), this consent constitutes the legal basis for the processing of personal data as may occur when Google reCAPTCHA is used.
From our side, there is also a legitimate interest in using Google reCAPTCHA to optimize our online service and make it more secure. The corresponding legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO (Legitimate Interests). Nevertheless, we only use Google reCAPTCHA if you have given your consent.
Google also processes data from you in the USA, among other places. We would like to point out that according to the opinion of the European Court of Justice, there is currently no adequate level of protection for the transfer of data to the USA. This may be associated with various risks to the legality and security of data processing.
As a basis for data processing at recipients located in third countries (outside the European Union, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, i.e. in particular in the USA) or a data transfer there, Google uses so-called standard contractual clauses (= Art. 46. para. 2 and 3 DSGVO). Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC) are templates provided by the EU Commission and are intended to ensure that your data complies with European data protection standards even if it is transferred to third countries (such as the USA) and stored there. Through these clauses, Google undertakes to comply with the European level of data protection when processing your relevant data, even if the data is stored, processed and managed in the US. These clauses are based on an implementing decision of the EU Commission. You can find the decision and the corresponding standard contractual clauses here, among other places: https://eur-lex.europa.eu/eli/dec_impl/2021/914/oj?locale=de
The Google Ads Data Processing Terms, which correspond to the standard contractual clauses, can be found at https://business.safety.google/adsprocessorterms/.

- complain to a supervisory authority in accordance with Art. 77 DSGVO. As a rule, you can contact the supervisory authority of your usual place of residence or workplace for this purpose. The address of the competent supervisory authority can be found on the website of the Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Information Security www.bfdi.bund.de .
6. right of objection
If your personal data is processed on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DSGVO, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO, provided that there are grounds for doing so that arise from your particular situation or the objection is directed against direct advertising. In the latter case, you have a general right to object, which will be implemented by us without specifying a particular situation.
If you wish to exercise your right of revocation or objection, simply send an e-mail to email@example.com .
7. data security
Within the website visit, we use the widespread SSL procedure (Secure Socket Layer) in connection with the highest encryption level supported by your browser. As a rule, this is a 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit v3 technology instead. You can tell whether an individual page of our website is transmitted in encrypted form by the closed display of the key or lock symbol in the upper status bar of your browser.
We also use appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or against unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
