This information (server logfiles) includes the browser type, operating system, domain name of your internet service provider and similar information. This does not include any information which will allow you to be identified. This information is technically necessary to allow the content you request from websites to be supplied correctly and is obligatory during use of the Internet. We statistically evaluate this kind of anonymous information in order to optimise our website and the technology required for its operation.
Just like many other websites, we use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files, transmitted from a website’s server onto your hard drive. We hereby receive certain data automatically, such as your IP address, the browser used, the operating system on your computer and your connection to the Internet.
cookies cannot be used to start programmes or transmit viruses onto a computer. The information contained in cookies allow us to
make navigation easier for you and allows the pages on our website to be displayed properly.
The information we gather will never be passed on to third parties or linked to your personal data without your consent.
In principle, you can view our website without cookies. Internet browsers are usually set to accept cookies. You can disable cookies in your browser’s settings at any time. Please use your browser’s help function to find out how you can change these settings. Please note that individual functions of our website might not work if you disable cookies.

Deletion or Locking of Data
We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data minimisation. Therefore, we only store your personal data as long as it is necessary for the fulfilment of the purposes stated here or as stipulated by the various retention periods provided by legislation. Once the relevant purpose has been fulfilled or these periods have expired, the relevant data will be locked or deleted routinely and in accordance with legal provisions.
Use of Script Libraries (Google Webfonts)
In order to present our content correctly over every browser and in a visually appealing way, we use script and font libraries such as Google Webfonts on this website (https://www.google.com/webfonts/).
Google Webfonts are transmitted into the cache of your browser to prevent repeated loading. If your browser does not support Google Webfonts or prevents access, content will be displayed in a standard font.
Invoking script or font libraries automatically activates a connection to the library’s operator. Operators of relevant libraries may theroretically gather data, but it is currently not clear whether they will and, if so, for what purpose.
Use of Google Maps
You can find detailed instructions on the management of your data in connection with Google products here.

You also have a right to amendment, locking or deletion of your personal data, provided they are not required for business processing. Please contact our data protection officer for this. You can find their contact details below.
To allow locking of your data to be recognised at all times, these data must be stored in a lock file for monitoring purposes. You may also request the deletion of your data as long as there is no legal obligation to store them.
If such an obligation exists, we will lock your data upon request.
You may make changes to or revoke your consent with future effect by contacting us.
