The website operator only collects, uses and passes on your personal data if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of data.
Personal information is any information that is used to identify you and which can be traced back to you, such as your name, e-mail address and telephone number.
You can also visit this website without providing any personal information.
However, in order to improve our online offer, we store your access data to this website (without personal reference).
This access data includes, for example, the file you requested or the name of your Internet provider.
By anonymizing the data, it is not possible to draw conclusions about your person.
We collect personal data such as first name, surname, IP address, e-mail address, place of residence, postcode and contents, insofar as a contact form is operated.
The above data will also be collected if you use other contact options, such as e-mail, fax and telephone.
We process personal data only with the express permission of the users concerned and in compliance with the applicable data protection regulations.
The processing of personal data takes place on the basis of our legitimate interest in order to fulfil our contractually agreed services and to optimise our online offer.
Handling of contact data
If you contact us as a website operator through the contact options offered, your details will be stored so that they can be used to process and respond to your enquiry.
This data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.
Dealing with comments and contributions
If you leave a contribution or comment on this website, your IP address will be saved.
This is done on the basis of our legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR and serves the security of us as website operator:
Because if your comment should offend against valid right, we can be sued for it, why we have an interest in the identity of the comment and/or contribution author.
Rights of the user
As a user, you have the right to request free information on what personal data has been stored about you.
You also have the right to have incorrect data corrected and to have your personal data processed or deleted. If applicable, you may also assert your right to data portability.
If you believe that your data has been processed unlawfully, you can lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority.
Deletion of data
Unless your request conflicts with a legal obligation to store data (e.g. data retention), you have a right to have your data deleted.
Data stored by us will be deleted if it is no longer required for its intended use and there are no legal retention periods.
If deletion is not possible because the data is required for legal purposes, data processing will be restricted.
In this case, the data will be blocked and not processed for other purposes.
Right of objection
Users of this website may exercise their right of objection and object to the processing of their personal data at any time.
If you wish to have your personal data stored corrected, blocked or deleted, or if you have any questions regarding the collection, processing or use of your personal data, or if you wish to withdraw your consent, please contact us at the following e-mail address:
On the basis of our legitimate interests, this website uses for the optimisation and analysis of our online offer in the sense of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO the service "Google Analytics", which is provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA).
The service (Google Analytics) uses "cookies" - text files which are stored on your end device.
The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
Google LLC complies with European data protection law and is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement:
IP anonymisation is used on this website. The IP address of the users is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area and in the other contracting states of the agreement.
Only in individual cases is the IP address initially transferred in full to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
Through this shortening, the personal reference of your IP address is no longer necessary.
The user's IP address transmitted by the browser is not combined with other data stored by Google.
Within the framework of the agreement on commissioned data, which we, as website operator, have concluded with Google Inc., the latter uses the information collected to create an evaluation of website use and website activity and provides services associated with Internet use.
The data collected by Google on our behalf is used to evaluate the use of our online service by individual users, e.g. to generate reports on website activity in order to improve our online service.

This website uses plug-ins of Youtube.de/Youtube.com, which is - represented by Google Inc. - operated by Youtube, LLC, Cherry Ave., USA (“YouTube”).
If you call up a page of our Internet presence which contains such a plug-in, a connection to the YouTube servers will be established, and the plug-in will be shown on the website by a notification to your browser.

If you are logged in as a YouTube member when doing so, YouTube will associate that information with your personal user accounts with those platforms.
When using functions of the plug-in, for example, when clicking the start button of a video or sending a comment, that information will be associated, for example, with your YouTube user account; this can only be prevented by you by logging out at YouTube before using the plug-in.
Information regarding the collection and use of the platforms or plug-ins can be found in the data privacy statement of YouTube. For more informations please go to Youtube.com.
