Area of application
With this data protection declaration, users receive information about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of their data, which is collected and used by the responsible provider.
The Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the German Telemedia Act (TMG) form the legal framework for data protection.
Collection of general information
With every access to this offer, information is automatically collected by us or the web space provider. This information, also known as server log files, is of a general nature and does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person. Among other things are recorded: the name of the website, file, date, data volume, web browser and web browser version, operating system, the domain name of your Internet provider, the so-called referrer URL (the page from which you accessed our website) and the IP address.
Without these data it would not be technically possible to deliver and display the contents of the website. In this respect, the collection of data is absolutely essential. In addition, we use the anonymous information for statistical purposes. They help us to optimize our range of services. We also reserve the right to subsequently check the log files in case of suspicion of illegal use of our offer.
If you contact us via e-mail, we will store the information you provide in order to answer your inquiry and ask possible follow-up questions.
Integration of third-party services and content
Our offer may include content, services and performances of other providers. These include maps provided by Google Maps, videos from YouTube and graphics and images from other websites. For this data to be called up and displayed in the user's browser, the transmission of the IP address is absolutely necessary. The providers (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers") thus perceive the IP address of the respective user.
Although we make every effort to use only third-party providers who only need the IP address to deliver content, we have no influence on whether the IP address may be stored. In this case, this process is used for statistical purposes, among other things. If we have knowledge that the IP address is stored, we point this out to our users.
This website uses so-called cookies. These are text files that are stored on your computer from the server. They contain information about the browser, the IP address, the operating system and the Internet connection. This data will not be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.

Use of Piwik or Matomo
This website uses Piwik or Matomo, an open source software that collects and stores data. This information is used for marketing and optimization purposes. Piwik or Matomo uses the data to create user profiles using a pseudonym. For this purpose, the software stores cookies (text files) on your computer, which can be used to analyse your use of the website. Your IP address will be anonymized immediately after processing and before storage. The data is stored on the servers of the provider in Germany.
If you do not want Piwik or Matomo to store cookies, you can use your browser settings to prevent the installation of cookies (please refer to the browser's help function). In this case you may not be able to use all functions of the offer.
We store personal data in accordance with the principles of data avoidance and data economy only as long as it is required or prescribed by law (legal storage period). If the purpose of the information collected no longer applies or if the storage period ends, we block or delete the data.
Your rights to information, correction, blocking, deletion and objection
You have the right, upon request and free of charge, to request information about the personal data stored by us and/or to request correction, blocking or deletion.

To be able to consider a data lock at any time, it is necessary to keep the data in a lock file for control purposes. If there is no legal archiving obligation, you can also request the deletion of the data. Otherwise we block the data if you wish.
