Collection and processing of personal data

Personal data are details of an identifiable natural person's personal or material circumstances. This includes information such as your name, your address, your telephone number and your date of birth. Personal data are collected only if you make them available to us on your own initiative, in the course of, say, registering, by filling in forms or sending e-mails, in the course of ordering products or services, making enquires or requesting material. The personal data that you communicate to us via a web page (e.g. your name and your address or your e-mail address) are processed only for correspondence with you and for the purpose for which you made the data available to us. In addition, we will use these data to make occasional offers to you, to inform you about new products or services and other services that may be of interest to you. You may object to this use of personal data at any time. The database and its contents remain with our company and our provider. Your personal data will not be made available by us to third parties in any form, unless we have obtained your consent or an official injunction to do so.

Right to information

If requested in writing, we will inform you about what data we have stored about you as a person. You have the right to check all personal data stored with us and to have them rectified if, in your opinion, they are out of data or incorrect.


Cookies are small files that enable us to store specific user-related information on your PC during your visit to one of our web pages. Cookies help us to determine the frequency of use and the number of users of our web pages and to make our offerings as convenient and efficient as possible for you.

Most of the cookies used by us are "session cookies" or are used for data analysis by etracker (see above). Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Cookies do not cause any damage on your computer and do not contain any viruses or similar malware. You can also use our web pages without cookies. You can disable the storage of cookies in your browser, limit them to particular web pages or configure your browser to inform you as soon as a cookie is placed.

Incorporation of third-party services and content

Third-party content such as YouTube videos, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other web pages may be incorporated within this online offering. This is always conditional upon the users' IP address being disclosed to the providers of such content (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers"), because, without the IP address, they would not be able to send the content to the respective user's browser. The IP address is therefore necessary for the presentation of such content. We endeavour to use only content whose respective providers use the IP address merely to deliver the content. However, we have no control over third-party providers storing the IP address, say, for statistical purposes. Where we are aware of this, we inform users about it.

Use of Facebook social plugins

This offering uses social plugins ("plugins") provided by the social network, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). The plugins are identifiable by one of the Facebook logos (white "f" on a blue tile or a "thumbs- up" sign) or are flagged by the phrase "Facebook social plugin". You can view the list and appearance of Facebook social plugins here:

If users visit a page of this offering that contains a plugin of this type, their browser will create a direct link to the servers of Facebook. Facebook will transmit the content of the plugin directly to your browser, which will integrate it into the web page. The provider therefore has no control over the amount of data that Facebook collects using this plugin and therefore provides information to users in accordance with its level of knowledge.

The integration of the plugins enables Facebook to be informed that a user has called up the relevant page of the offering. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his or her Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, by, for example, pressing the “Like” button or posting a comment, their browser will transmit the relevant information directly to Facebook, where it is stored. If a user is not a member of Facebook, it is still possible for Facebook to discover and store his or her IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymized IP address is stored in Germany.

Users can find out about the purpose and scope of data capture as well as the further processing and use of data by Facebook and related rights and setting options to protect user privacy in Facebook's privacy policy at:

If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him or her via this offering and to link such data to his or her member data stored at Facebook, he or she will need to log off from Facebook before visiting the website

Another option is to use add-ons, such as "Facebook Blocker", to block Facebook social plugins for your browser.


This offering uses the buttons and content of the Twitter service. These buttons are made available by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. They can be identified by terminology such as "Twitter" or "Follow", combined with a stylized blue bird. The buttons can be used to share a contribution or page of this offering on Twitter or to follow the provider on Twitter.

If users visit a page of this website that contains a button of this type, their browser will create a direct link to the servers of Twitter. The content of the Twitter button is transferred directly by Twitter to the users' browser. The provider therefore has no control over the amount of data that Twitter collects using this plugin and therefore provides information to users in accordance with its level of knowledge. According to this knowledge, only the user's IP address and the URL of the relevant website are transmitted when the Twitter button is used, but for no other purpose than to display the button.
