Privacy Policy

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

In order to optimize our website for you, we use cookies: This includes + cookies that are necessary for the operation of our website and others that we use for anonymous web analysis or for improved functions.

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.

Category: Necessary

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)

We use the open source tool Matomo for web analysis. This is used to analyze visitor traffic on the Internet. Matomo uses cookies that are stored on the computer. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the Internet is transferred to our server and stored there. Unlike other widely used web analytics tools such as Google Analytics, this data is not stored on the service provider’s web servers in third countries, where it would be beyond our control. We use this data for statistical purposes and to analyze, develop and improve Internet usage. In principle, the collection of IP addresses is anonymized (through the use of the AnonymizeIP plugin). The last 2 bytes are anonymized.

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:

IP address

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

Screen resolution

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.

Google Maps

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.

If you do not want Google to collect, process or use data about you via our website, you can deactivate JavaScript in your browser settings. In this case, however, you will not be able to use the map display.

For the purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Google, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy, please refer to Google’s privacy policy ( ).


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.
