Despite the use of a certified and licensed SSL encryption within our website (see certificate at the left side of your browser's adress bar), we must note, that internet based data transmission has security holes and therefore a complete protection against unauthorized access by third parties is impossible.

By contacting us via e-mail your mail server usually provides an IP address. For further assistance please ask your responsible service provider or hosting partner.

No data is transferred to third parties. This data will only be used for the purpose of facilitating communications with the user.

The data we receive via contact form or e-mail will be deleted as soon as the corresponding communication with the user is completed. This does not apply, if the content of the communication also has legal significance afterwards.

Google-Maps via opt-in

We use the “Google Maps” component of  Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter „Google“, soley through an opt-in method. That means, the plugin of Google will be loaded, initialized, the relevant cookies will be enabled and usually your IP address will be transmitted to Google only by your explicit request and click on the button.

Each time Google Maps is requested, Google sets a cookie to process user settings and data during the visit of the page with the integrated Google Maps component. This cookie is usually not deleted by closing the browser, but will expire after a certain amount of time, unless you manually delete it. If you disagree with the processing of your data, you may disable the "Google Maps" service and prevent the transmission of data to Google. To do this, you must disable the Java Script feature in your browser. However, please note that in this case you will not be able to use "Google Maps", or only to a limited extent.

The use of “Google Maps” and the information obtained through “Google Maps” is according to Google’s Terms of Service https://policies.google.com/terms?hl=en&gl=de as well as the additional Terms and Conditions for "Google Maps" https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/help/terms_maps.html (only in German available).

Transfer to third parties

We will only pass on your data to third parties within the scope of legal regulations or with the appropriate consent. Otherwise, a transfer to third parties will not take place, unless we are obliged to do so due to mandatory legislation, i. e. transfer to external parties such as supervisory or law enforcement agencies.

Server Logfiles

For technical reasons, data such as the following, which your internet browser transmits automatically to us respectively to our web space provider (so called server logfiles), is collected:

  • websites that you visit
  • your Internet Protocol (IP) address
  • number of requests
  • type and version of the browser
  • date and time of your visit
  • status code (request successful/not successful)

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 will be deleted after 3 days.

Since the collection and storage of the data in the logfiles is compulsory for the failure-free operation of the website, there is no possibility for the user to object.
