For all such processors, there are legally compliant guarantees for your data security, which we review regularly, at least once a year.

Collection of technical and personal data

  • Access status/HTTP status code

  • Amount of data transferred in each case

When using this technical data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about you as a person. This information is rather required in order to

  • to deliver the contents of the website correctly,

  • to optimize the contents of the website as well as the advertising for the same,

  • to ensure the long-term functionality of the information technology systems and the technology of the website, and

  • to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack.

The IP address of your computer is stored only for the time of your use of the website and then deleted or anonymized by shortening, unless longer storage is necessary to ensure the functionality or security of the website (e.g. in the event of Internet attacks). The remaining data is stored for a limited period of time, whereby a personal reference from this data can no longer be established, as the associated IP address is deleted or anonymized. We use this data for the operation of our website, in particular to detect and eliminate website errors, to determine the utilization of the website and to make adjustments or improvements. Therefore, we evaluate these data and information statistically, and moreover, with the aim of increasing data protection and data security, in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by you.

Personal data (name, address, e-mail address, etc.) that you voluntarily disclose to us, e.g. by registering for a newsletter, sending us a contact request or making use of an educational offer, will be stored by us for the purpose of providing the associated services (e.g. sending newsletters, preparing an offer, sending information material, consulting, etc.) and for the duration of the user relationship, unless a longer storage period is required for the purpose of fulfilling a contractual obligation or for asserting or defending legal claims.


You can revoke your consent at any time without giving reasons, please contact us:

Data security

Use of social media

Our website offers you the possibility to share links to our content on social media platforms by means of so-called "social bookmarks", whereby initially no personal data is transferred to these providers. To protect your data, we rely on the "Shariff" solution for implementation. Through this, these buttons are only embedded on the website as a graphic that contains a link to the corresponding website of the button provider. Only if you click on one of the social media icons, personal data will be transmitted. Unless you click on the graphic, no exchange takes place between you and the providers of the social media buttons. When you call up the website of the respective social media provider, data is automatically transmitted to the respective service provider and stored there (including in the case of US providers in the USA). We have no influence on the collected data and data processing procedures, nor are we aware of the full extent of the data collection, the purposes and the storage periods.

For further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by the respective social media service, please refer to the data protection declarations of these providers communicated below. There you will also receive further information about your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy.

The most important ones are summarized here.

Google AdWords

Our website uses Google conversion tracking. If you have reached our website via an ad placed by Google, a cookie is set on your computer by Google Adwords. The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ad placed by Google. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked across AdWords customers' websites. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. The customers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users.

If you do not wish to participate in the tracking, you can refuse the setting of a cookie required for this - for example, via a browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies or set your browser so that cookies from the domain "" are blocked.

Please note that you may not delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not want any measurement data to be recorded. If you have deleted all your cookies in the browser, you must set the respective opt-out cookie again.

Embedded YouTube videos

We embed YouTube videos on some of our websites. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection to YouTube servers is established. In the process, Youtube is informed which pages you are visiting. If you are logged into your Youtube account, Youtube can assign your surfing behavior to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your Youtube account beforehand.

If a Youtube video is started, the provider uses cookies that collect information about user behavior. If you have deactivated the storage of cookies for the Google Ad program, you will not have to deal with such cookies when watching Youtube videos.
