To maintain this claim and to take into account developments in the data protection laws, we may make adjustments which you can find current information on here while visiting our website.

This information is recorded and evaluated for statistical purposes and to improve the functionality and stability of our web site on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 S. 1f GDPR . You remain anonymous as an individual user. There is no connection to other data. You can object to this use. To do so, please tell us the IP address concerned and the precise time of your access to our web pages. We will then delete the corresponding entries from our protocol data. Otherwise the data is automatically deleted after evaluation.

(4) We use “cookies“, which are small text files stored on your computer via your Internet browser. These contain information that makes it easier for you to navigate our site and that are necessary to give full functionality of the site and also information to optimize the configuration of the site. These text files are mostly deleted after the end of each browser session, and you can delete any remaining cookies yourself using your browser settings. Setting of any cookies can also be declined or they can be individually displayed and made dependent on your permission using the browser settings. Refusal of cookies can affect the functionality of web site. In addition, when you enter our site, you are informed by a cookie banner or a cookie consent tool and you can choose there.

Where personal data is not processed by technically set cookies, this is done on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 parag. 1a GDPR, with your express consent, which you can withdraw at any time without this affecting the legality of the data processed with your consent up until the revocation. You can declare withdrawal of consent via the “Cookies settings” link at the bottom of each page.

Technical cookies necessary and required for the functionality and use of this web site do not require consent. This also includes the Borlabs cookie of the provider Borlabs GmbH, Rübenkamp 32, 22305 Hamburg, which we set in the context of a cookie consent tool to store your prescribed cookie consent under legally necessary regulations.

The operators of the linked sites then become responsible for data protection. Information on their data protection can be found at und

(7) Our web site uses Matomo, an open source software for statistical evaluation of visitor accesses. Matomo uses cookies, which are small text files that are stored on your computer via your web browser and which enable anonymized analysis of your use of the web site. It is not possible to identify any certain person this way, as your IP address is anonymized immediately after processing and before storage. We operate Matomo on our own or rented servers, so there is no transfer of data to third parties. Matomo is used for the purpose of improving the quality of our website and its contents. Through this, we find out how the web site is being used and so we can continuously optimize our offer. Processing of data, especially the placing of cookies, happens only with your consent on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1a GDPR. You give your consent via the settings you make and the corresponding confirmation via the cookie banner or the consent tool when you visit the website. You can revoke the consent at any time without this affecting the legality of any processing of data undertaken up to the point of withdrawal of consent.

You can withdraw consent via the menu item “Cookie Settings”. This can e found at the bottom of the page opened. You can get an overview here of all the cookies used. You can give your consent to whole categories or have further information displayed and so select only certain cookies. Alternatively, most modern browsers have a so-called “Do Not Track“ option, with which you instruct websites not to track your user activities. Matomo respects this option. You can prevent storage of cookies by an appropriate setting of your browser software; however, please note that in this case you may not be able to use the full functionality of this web site.
