Every time a customer (or other visitor) accesses our website, the Internet browser used on your end device (computer, laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) automatically sends information to our website’s server. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file.

The following data is recorded without your intervention and stored until it is automatically deleted, after three months:

  • Ensuring a smooth connection setup and a comfortable use of the website,
  • evaluation of system security and stability as well as

for other administrative purposes.

Under no circumstances will the data collected by us either be passed on to third parties or  linked to personal data. The legal basis for this temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 f) DSGVO.

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for achieving the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of our website, the data will be deleted as soon as the respective session has ended. However, further storage is also possible. In this case, however, your IP address will be deleted or alienated, so that it is no longer possible to attribute the data to your person.

The collection of data for the provision of our website and the storage of data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility for you to object in this respect.

If you have any questions, we offer you the opportunity to contact us using the form provided on the website.

The data will be processed for the purpose of contacting us pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO on the basis of your voluntary consent.

The personal data collected by us for the use of the contact form will be automatically deleted after your request has been processed.

The use of this comment function requires the input of a name, whereby you can also choose a pseudonym. The e-mail address must also be provided., as it is the only means for us to be able to forward any complaints about your comments and to ask you to comment on them.

It is not possible for you to use the comment function without this information. When your comment is published, the e-mail address you provided is stored, but not published. Your name will be published, unless you have chosen to write under the use of a pseudonym.

If you leave comments on our website, the time of their creation will be saved in addition to the information mentioned. This serves our security, since we can be prosecuted for illegal contents on our webpage, even if these were provided by users.

In the career section you can find information regarding our vacancies and send us your application by e-mail, among other things.

The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an application by e-mail is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO, since the e-mail contact aims at the conclusion of a contract. In addition, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO provides an additional legal basis for processing.

We use tracking tools on our website to analyse the behaviour of users on our website. With this statistical collection we want to design our website according to your needs and continuously adapt it for you as our user and optimize its use. The tracking measures we use are based on Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO, § 15 Para. 3 TMG. Our stated interests are justified in the sense of the aforementioned regulation.

We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google LLC (hereinafter”Google”), for the purpose of the demand-oriented design and continuous optimisation of our websites. In this context, pseudonymised user profiles are created and cookies (see above) are set.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website, such as browser type/version, operating system used, referrer URL (the previously visited page), host name of the accessing computer (IP address) and the time of the server request are generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will reduce your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other countries party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services associated with the use of the website and the Internet for the purposes of market research and demand-oriented design of these websites. Our legitimate interest in data processing also lies in these purposes. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is § 15 Paragraph 3 TMG in connection with Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. f DSGVO.

This information may also be transferred to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of the company. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with other data from Google. The IP addresses are made anonymous so that an assignment is not possible (so-called IP masking).

The data sent by us and linked with cookies, user IDs (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 14 months. Data whose retention period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month.

Social plugins from the providers listed below are used on our websites.

This website offers the possibility to share content in social services via the service AddToAny. Data is only collected if these services are called up by you. Since you can only use these services if you have a user account there and must log in with your access data, the responsibility no longer lies with us from this point on, because the creation of user accounts, i.e. the membership of social services, requires your consent to the respective data protection regulations. The AddToAny service does not store any personal data according to the data protection declaration ( We also do not receive any data from AddToAny or data resulting from the use of the share buttons. AddToAny provides an opt-out option for a large number of advertising networks.


The GDPR grants you certain rights as a person affected by the processing of personal data. If you wish to exercise one or more of these rights, simply send an e-mail to:

You have the right to request information from us at any time and free of charge as to whether or not we process personal data relating to you.

If you are an affected person, since personal data concerning you is being processed by our company, you are entitled to the following information:

  • the purposes of processing;
  • the categories of personal data concerned;
  • the recipients or categories of recipient to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, in particular recipients in third countries or international organisations;
  • where possible, the envisaged period for which the personal data will be stored, or, if not possible, the criteria used to determine that period;
  • the existence of the right to request from the controller rectification or erasure of personal data or restriction of processing of personal data concerning the data subject or to object to such processing;
  • the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority;
  • where the personal data are not collected from the data subject, any available information as to their source.

You are also entitled to information as to whether your personal data is the subject of an automated decision within the meaning of Art 22 GDPR (profiling) and, if this is the case, what decision criteria form the basis of such an automated decision (logic involved) or what significance and effects the automated decision may have on you.

If personal data are transferred to a third country outside the scope of the GDPR, you are entitled to be informed of it as well as of the appropriate safeguards pursuant to Articles 45, 46 GDPR relating to the transfer.

Furthermore, you have the right to request a copy of your personal data undergoing processing. As a matter of principle, we make data copies available in electronic form, unless you have indicated otherwise. The first copy is free of charge; an appropriate fee may be charged for further copies. The right to obtain a copy referred to in paragraph 3 shall not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

You have the right to request us to correct your data if it is inaccurate and/or incomplete; the right to correct includes the right to supplement it with additional explanations or notifications. Corrections or additions must be made immediately, i.e. without culpable delay.

You have the right to request us to delete personal data concerning you without delay, and we are obliged to delete this data immediately as long as one of the following grounds apply:

  • the personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed;
  • the data processing is based on a consent given by you, and you have withdrawn the consent, unless there is no other legal ground for the data processing;
  • you have filed an objection to data processing pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for further processing,
  • your personal data have been unlawfully processed;
  • it concerns data of a child, collected in relation to information society services pursuant to Art. 8 para. 1 GDPR.

There is no right to delete personal data if

  • the right to freedom of expression and information precludes the request for cancellation;
  • the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation (e.g. statutory retention obligations), to perform public tasks and interests under EU law or the law of the member states (this also includes interests in the field of public health) or for archiving and/or research purposes;
  • the personal data is necessary to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

The deletion must take place immediately, i.e. without culpable hesitation. If personal data has been made public by us and we are obliged to delete the personal data pursuant to Art. 17 para. 1 GDPR, we shall take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and implementation costs, to inform other data processors who process the published personal data, that you have requested the deletion of all links to this personal data or of copies or replications of this personal data, unless processing is absolutely necessary for other reasons.

Furthermore, you have the right to request us to restrict the processing of your data, provided that the legal requirements are met:

  • If you have disputed the accuracy of your personal data, you can demand that we do not use your data for other purposes for the duration of the accuracy check and limit them in this respect.
  • In the event of unlawful data processing, you may request the restriction of data use in accordance with Art. 18 GDPR instead of data deletion in accordance with Art. 17 (1) (d) GDPR.
  • If you need your personal data to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, but otherwise your personal data are no longer required, you can request us to restrict processing to the aforementioned legal prosecution purposes;
  • If you have filed an objection to data processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR and it is not yet clear whether our interests in processing outweigh your interests, you may demand that your data shall not be used for other purposes for the duration of the examination and be restricted in this respect.

Where processing has been restricted at your request, such personal data shall, with the exception of storage, only be processed:

  • with your permission,
  • to assert, exercise or defend legal claims,
  • for the protection of the rights of other natural or legal persons, or
  • for reasons of important public interest.

If a processing restriction is lifted, you will be informed of this in advance.

As the data subject, you have the right to request us to inform of all recipients, to whom we have disclosed the personal data concerning you. Furthermore, we shall inform these recipients of any correction or deletion or restriction of processing in cases in which you assert the right of rectification (Article 16 DSGVO), to erasure (Article 17 DSGVO) or to restriction of processing (Article 18 DSGVO), unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.

As the person concerned, you have the right to demand that we hand you the personal data concerning you, which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or to fulfil a contract, in a common electronic, machine-readable format. The right to data portability includes the right to transfer the data to another controller.

If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only take place if it is technically feasible. The right to data portability according to Art. 20 GDPR does not affect the right to data erasure according to Art. 17 GDPR. Data portability is subject to the rights and freedoms of other persons whose rights may be affected by the data transfer.

In the case of processing personal data to perform tasks in the public interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit e GDPR) or to safeguard legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit f GDPR), you can object to the processing of your personal data at any time with future effect. In the event of an objection, we shall refrain from any further processing of your data for the aforementioned purposes, unless,

  • there are compelling, legitimate grounds for processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or
  • the processing is necessary to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

You can object to the use of your data for the purpose of direct advertising at any time with effect for the future; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is connected with direct advertising. In the event of objection, we must refrain from any further processing of your data for the purpose of direct marketing. An informal notification by e-mail is sufficient for the revocation.

The exercise of the right of objection is directed towards future processing. The legality of the data processing up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

You have the right to change or revoke your consent to the processing of personal data at any time without giving reasons to us with effect for the future. As a result, we are no longer allowed to continue the processing of data based on this consent. Any processing that has already taken place in the past will neither become ineffective nor must it be reversed.

As the person concerned, you have a right of appeal to the responsible supervisory authority in the event of a breach of data protection law.

The responsible supervisory authority is the
