When you visit, information on access may be stored on our server (examples: Date and time of access, name of your internet provider, type of your internet browser, pages visited within our internet presence). However, this data is anonymised and is evaluated by us exclusively for statistical purposes and to improve our offer.

Our internet presence uses so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer system. They serve to make our internet presence more user-friendly, effective and secure. The cookies also enable us to measure the frequency of page views and general navigation. Most of the cookies transferred to your computer system are automatically deleted from your hard drive after your visit. Other cookies remain on your computer system and enable us to recognise your computer system on your next visit. If you do not wish this, you can prevent the use of these cookies at any time by changing the settings of your browser.

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (hereafter: Google). Google Analytics uses so-called cookies. These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states which are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transferred to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use the transferred data to evaluate your use of our Internet offer, to compile reports on website activities and to provide further services associated with website and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting your browser software accordingly. In this case, however, we would like to point out that you may no longer be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link:

Use of Facebook Social Plugins

We use social plugins (“Plugins”) on our website from the social network, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”). The plugins can be identified by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on blue tile or a “thumbs up” sign) or are marked with the addition “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list and appearance of the Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed here:

If you call up a website of our Internet offer that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser, which integrates it into the website. We therefore have no influence on the extent of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and can therefore only inform you of what we are doing with it according to our state of knowledge: By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that you have called up the corresponding page of the offer. If you are a member of Facebook and logged into your account, Facebook can assign your visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, e.g. if you press the Like button or make a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook and stored there. If you are not a member of Facebook, it is still possible for Facebook to find out and save your IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymised IP address is stored in Germany. The purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of data by Facebook, as well as the relevant rights and setting options for protecting the privacy of users, can be found in Facebook’s data protection information:

If you are a member of Facebook and do not want Facebook to collect data about you via this offer and link it with your membership data stored on Facebook, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website. You also have the option of blocking Facebook social plug-ins with add-ons for your browser, for example with the “Facebook Blocker”. Further settings and objections to the use of data for advertising purposes are possible within the Facebook profile settings:

Privacy policy for the use of Twitter

We use the buttons of the Twitter service on our website. These buttons are provided by Twitter Inc, 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. They are recognisable by terms such as “Twitter” or “follow”, linked by the stylised blue bird. With the help of the buttons it is possible to share a post or a page of our website on Twitter or to follow us on Twitter. If you call up a website of this Internet presence that contains such a button, your browser will establish a direct connection with the servers of Twitter. The content of the Twitter buttons is transmitted by Twitter directly to the browser you are using. We therefore have no influence on the extent of the data that Twitter collects with the help of this plugin. To the best of our knowledge, only your IP address and the URL of the respective website will be transmitted when you click on the button, but will not be used for any other purpose than to display the button. Further information on this can be found in the Twitter privacy policy at
