  • the page from which the file was requested
  • the name of the file
  • the date and time of the request
  • the data volume transferred
  • the access status (file transferred, file not found)
  • a description of the type of web browser used

We use cookies on our website. Cookies are small text files that are saved on your end device and read from there. A distinction is made between session cookies, which are deleted as soon as you close your browser, and permanent cookies which are stored beyond the individual session. Cookies may contain data that make it possible to recognize the device being used. In part, however, cookies also simply store information about specific settings that cannot be associated with an individual.

We use session cookies and permanent cookies on our websites. Some cookies are strictly necessary so that we can make our websites available to users. In these cases, processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6(1) sentence 1 point f) GDPR, § 25 (2) (2) TDDDG (Telecommunications Digital Services Data Protection Act). If the use of cookies is not absolutely necessary, cookies will only be used if you have given us your consent, in accordance with Article 6(1) sentence 1 point a) GDPR, § 25 (1) TDDDG.


You can set your browser in such a way that it informs you when you accept a cookie. This makes your use of cookies transparent. You can also delete cookies at any time and reject any new cookies by changing your browser settings as appropriate. Please note, however, that in this case our websites may not  appear at its best, and some of the functions may no longer be available for technical reasons.

Google Analytics

We use the web analysis tool "Google Analytics" to design our websites according to your needs. Google Analytics creates user profiles based on pseudonyms. For this purpose, permanent cookies are stored on your end device and accessed out by us.  In this way we are able to recognize and measure returning visitors.

The Google Analytics tool is provided by Google Ireland Limited and Google LLC. (USA) („Google“) who support us as data processors according to Art. 28 GDPR. The data processing can therefore also take place outside the EU or EEA. With regard to Google LLC (USA), no adequate level of data protection can be assumed due to the processing in the USA. There is a risk that authorities may access the data for security and surveillance purposes without you being informed or having the right to appeal.

Please take this into account if you decide to give your consent to our use of Google Analytics. We have also concluded standard contractual clauses with Google in accordance with Article 46 (2) (c) GDPR.

The legal basis for this data processing is your consent if you have given your consent via our consent banner according to Art. 6(1) sentence 1 point a), § 25 (1) TDDDG. 

You can withdraw your consent at any time. Please click on cookie settings and make the appropriate settings via our cookie banner.

We use the Google reCaptcha service to establish whether a specific input on our contact form has been made by a person or a computer. Google checks by means of the following data whether you are a person or a computer: IP address of the end device used, the page of our website that you are visiting and into which reCaptcha is integrated, the date and duration of your visit, the recognition data for the browser and operating system used, your Google account if you are logged into Google, the mouse movements over the reCaptcha areas in which you have to identify images.

The data about you is processed only to reply to your inquiry. The legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6(1) point (f) GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in making contact with the users of our website, in answering any questions posed and in sending out information. We usually delete your inquiry as soon as it has been answered and provided that its erasure does not contravene any statutory retention periods.

We require your consent for this (Art. 6(1) sentence 1 point a) GDPR).

Commissioned data processors

We transfer your data in the context of commissioned data processing pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR to service providers who support us in operating our website and the associated processes. Our service providers are strictly bound by our instructions and are under corresponding contractual obligations.

In some cases, we also transfer personal data to third countries outside the EU in this context. In doing so, we always ensure that there is an appropriate level of data protection:

We conclude the standard contractual clauses with service providers in third countries. These provide suitable guarantees for the protection of your data with service providers in third countries. You can request a copy of this data protection agreement using the contact details given above.

Data security

We take technical and organizational steps to protect your data as fully as possible against unauthorized access. We use an encryption process on our pages. Your details are transmitted from your computer to our server and vice versa

Your rights as a user

When your personal data is processed, the GDPR gives you certain rights as the user of a website:

1.    Right to information (Art. 15 GDPR):

You have the right to obtain confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning you are being processed; and, where that is the case, you have the right to information about those personal data and to the information listed specifically in Art. 15 GDPR.

2.    Right to rectification and erasure (Art. 16 and 17 GDPR):

You have the right to demand immediate rectification of incorrect personal data about you and, where appropriate, completion of incomplete personal data.

You have the right to demand that personal data about you are erased immediately if one of the grounds listed specifically in Art. 17 GDPR applies, e.g. if data are no longer required for the stated purpose.

3.    Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR):

You have the right to demand restriction of processing if one of the conditions specified in Art. 18 GDPR is met, e.g. if you have objected to processing in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR or for the duration of any period in which the precedence of our legitimate interests over your interests as the data subject is being verified.

4.    Right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR):

In certain cases that are listed specifically in Art. 20 GDPR, you have the right to receive personal data about you in a structured, commonly used and machine readable format or to demand transmission of those data to a third party.

If you have given us your consent, you may withdraw it at any time. In withdrawing your consent, the lawfulness of the processing carried out up to the point of withdrawal is not affected.

If data are collected on the basis of Art. 6(1) sentence 1 point (f) GDPR (data processing to protect legitimate interests), you have the right to object to processing at any time for reasons resulting from your particular situation. We will then no longer process the personal data unless there are demonstrable, compelling, legitimate reasons for processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms, or if the purpose of processing is to assert, exercise or defend against legal claims.

7.    Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory body

Pursuant to Art. 77 GDPR, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory body if you believe that processing of the data about you breaches the provisions of data protection law. The right to lodge a complaint may be exercised, in particular, with a supervisory authority in the Member State of your place of residence, place of work or the location of the alleged breach.
