Our website may be used without entering personal information. Different rules may apply to certain services on our site, however, and are explained separately below. We collect personal information from you (e.g. name, address, email address, telephone number, etc.) in accordance with the provisions of German data protection statutes. Information is considered personal if it can be associated exclusively to a specific natural person. The legal framework for data protection may be found in the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG). The provisions below serve to provide information as to the manner, extent and purpose for collecting, using and processing personal information by the provider.

Please be aware that data transfer via the internet is subject to security risks and, therefore, complete protection against third-party access to transferred data cannot be ensured.
Our website makes use of so-called cookies in order to recognize repeat use of our website by the same user/internet connection subscriber. Cookies are small text files that your internet browser downloads and stores on your computer. They are used to improve our website and services. In most cases these are so-called "session cookies" that are deleted once you leave our website.
To an extent, however, these cookies also pass along information used to automatically recognize you. Recognition occurs through an IP address saved to the cookies. The information thereby obtained is used to improve our services and to expedite your access to the website.
You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting the settings on your browser software accordingly. You should be aware, however, that by doing so you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of our website.
For technical reasons, data such as the following, which your internet browser transmits to us or to our web space provider (so called server log files), is collected:
- type and version of the browser you use
- operating system
- websites that linked you to our site (referrer URL)
- websites that you visit
- date and time of your visit
- your Internet Protocol (IP) address.
This anonymous data is stored separately from any personal information you may have provided, thereby making it impossible to connect it to any particular person. The data is used for statistical purposes in order to improve our website and services.
On our website we offer you the opportunity to contact us, either by email and/or by using a contact form. In such event, information provided by the user is stored for the purpose of facilitating communications with the user. No data is transferred to third parties. Nor is any of this information matched to any information that may be collected by other components of our website.
Use of Google Maps
We use the “Google Maps” component of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter “Google.”
Google sets a cookie in order to process the user configuration and data when the page with the integrated “Google Maps” component is displayed. As a general rule, this cookie is not deleted by closing the browser, but rather expires after a certain time, as long as it is not previously manually deleted by you.
If you do not agree with this processing of your data, you may choose to deactivate the “Google Maps” service and thereby prevent the transfer of data to Google. To do this, you must deactivate the Java Script function in your browser. However, we would like to point out that in this case you will not be able to use “Google Maps” or at least only to a limited extent.
as well as the additional Terms and Conditions for "Google Maps"
Use of MailChimp
We use the invitation to provide you with regular updates about our offers. To receive our invitation, you will need a valid email address. We will then check the email address entered to ensure that you are actually its owner or if its owner has agreed to receive our invitation. By registering, we will save your IP address and date and time of registration. This will be used in case a third party misuses your email address to subscribe to our invitation without your knowledge.
We will not compare the data collected during newsletter registration with any other data that might be collected by other components of our site.
Invitation by MailChimp
We use MailChimp to send our invitation to our subscribers. MailChimp is a service provided by The Rocket Science Group, LLC, 512 Means Street, Suite 404, Atlanta, GA 30318, USA.
The data stored when you registered for the invitation (email address, name, IP address, and time and date) will be sent to a server operated by The Rocket Science Group in the United States and stored there in accordance with the EU-US Privacy Shield.
Further information about the data protection offered by MailChimp can be found at:

You may cancel your invitation subscription and revoke your consent to the storage of this data at any time with future effect. For instructions to take this step, please refer to each invitation.
Our invitation includes so-called web bugs that allow us to recognise if and when an email has been opened and which links in the email have been clicked by its recipient.
This data is stored by us so that we can best align our invitation to the wishes and interests of our subscribers. Accordingly, the data thus collected is used to send personalised newsletters to each recipient.
By receiving the invitation you agree that your data and your user responses will be stored electronically by tracking so that you can receive a personalised invitation. By revoking the consent to receive the invitation, the consent to the aforementioned tracking is revoked.
Publication of vacancy announcements / job applications
We electronically collect and process your application data for the purpose of completing the application process. If your application results in the conclusion of an employment contract, the data collected from you may be stored in your personnel file for purposes of normal organizational and administrative processes in compliance with appropriate legal requirements.
Upon rejection of your application, data you have provided is automatically deleted two months after notification of rejection. This does not apply in such instances where, due to legal requirements (such as the burden of proof obligation stipulated in the Equal Treatment Act) a longer storage period is necessitated or when you expressly agreed to have your data stored for a longer period in our database of prospective applicants.
On the basis of the Federal Data Protection Act, you may contact us at no cost if you have questions relating to the collection, processing or use of your personal information, if you wish to request the correction, blocking or deletion of the same, or if you wish to cancel explicitly granted consent. Please note that you have the right to have incorrect data corrected or to have personal data deleted, where such claim is not barred by any legal obligation to retain this data.
Use of web analytics service Matomo
We use the open source software tool Matomo (formerly PIWIK) on our website to analyze the surfing behavior of our users. The software is configured so that it does not set a cookie on the visitor's terminal device.
If individual pages of our website are called up, the following data is stored:
- Two bytes of the IP address of the user's calling system
- The website called up
- The website from which the user accessed the website called up (referrer)
- The subpages called up from the website called up
- The time spent on the website
- The frequency with which the website is called up.
The software runs exclusively on the servers of our website in Germany. A storage of the personal data of the users only takes place there. The data is not passed on to third parties.
The software is set so that the IP addresses are not stored in full, but 2 bytes of the IP address are masked (Ex: 192.168.xxx.xxx). In this way, an assignment of the shortened IP address to the calling end device is no longer possible.
We offer our users the option of opting out of the Matomo analysis process on this page. To do this, you can view the current setting and deactivate tracking by removing the check mark. In this way, technically necessary cookies are set on their system, which signals our system not to store the user's data. If the user deletes the corresponding cookie from their own system in the meantime, they must set the opt-out cookie again.
