Data collection on our website
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies” that are deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in your device’s memory until you delete them. These cookies enable your browser to be recognised the next time you visit the site.
Server log files
The website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us in server log files. These are:
· Browser type and browser version
· Operating system used
· Referrer URL
· Host name of the computer accessing the site
· Time of the server request
· IP address
This data will not be combined with data from other sources.
The basis for data processing is Article 6(1)(b) GDPR, which allows the processing of data to fulfil a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract.
If you send us enquiries via contact form or email, your details from the enquiry form or the email, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored in order to process your request and deal with any follow-up queries. We will not share this information without your consent.
The processing of the data transmitted via the contact form or by email is therefore exclusively based on your consent (Article 6(1)(a) GDPR. You may revoke your consent at any time. An informal message by email to us is sufficient. The legality of data processing operations carried out until you revoke your consent remains unaffected by this revocation.
We will retain the data you provide on the contact form or in your email until you request its deletion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer pertains (e.g. after your request has been dealt with). Any mandatory statutory provisions, especially those regarding mandatory data retention periods, remain unaffected by this provision.
We only process and store your data for as long as is necessary for processing or to comply with legal obligations. Your data will be blocked or deleted when the purpose for which it was processed ceases to apply. If storage is subject to legal obligations, we will block or delete your data at the end of the statutory storage periods.
Analytics and advertising

Google Analytics Remarketing
Our sites use Google Analytics Remarketing features in conjunction with the cross-device features of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. The service is provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, U.S.
This feature enables the advertising target groups created with Google Analytics Remarketing to be linked with the cross-device features of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. This way, interest-related, personalised advertising messages that have been adapted depending on your previous usage and surfing behaviour on one terminal (e.g. mobile phone) can also be displayed on another of your terminals (e.g. tablet or PC).
If you have given your consent, Google will link your web and app browser history to your Google Account for this purpose. This means that the same personalised advertising messages can be displayed on any device on which you sign in with your Google Account.
To support this feature, Google Analytics collects Google-authenticated IDs of users that are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create audiences for cross-device ad promotion.
You can permanently opt out of cross-device remarketing/targeting by turning off personalised advertising in your Google Account; follow this link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.
The aggregation of the data collected in your Google Account data is based solely on your consent, which you may give to or withdraw from Google as per Article 6(1)(a) GDPR. For data collection operations not merged into your Google Account (e.g. because you do not have a Google Account or have objected to the merge), the collection of data is based on Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing anonymous user behaviour for promotional purposes.
We use Google reCAPTCHA (hereinafter “reCAPTCHA”) on our websites. This service is provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, U.S. (“Google”).
reCAPTCHA is used to check whether the data entered on our website (such as on a contact form) has been entered by a human or by an automated program. To do this, reCAPTCHA analyses the behaviour of website visitors based on various characteristics. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the visitor accesses the website. For the analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (e.g. IP address, how long the visitor spends on the website, or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis is forwarded to Google.
All reCAPTCHA analyses take place in the background. Website visitors are not notified that an analysis is taking place.
Data processing is based on Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting its site from abusive automated crawling and spam.
