We take data protection seriously
The protection of your privacy when processing personal data is an important concern for us. When you visit our website, our web servers automatically save the IP address of your internet service provider, the website from which you visit us, the websites you visit on our site and the date and duration of your visit. This information is absolutely necessary for the technical transmission of the websites and the secure server operation. A personalised evaluation of this data does not take place.
If you send us data via contact form, this data is stored on our servers in the course of data backup. Your data will be used by us to process your request and to contact you further for advertising and information purposes. Your data will be treated strictly confidential.
Personal data are data about your person. This includes your name, your address and your email address. You do not have to disclose any personal data to visit our website. In some cases we need your name and address and other information in order to provide you with the requested service.
The same applies if we supply you with information material on request, if we answer your enquiries or if you apply for a job with us. In these cases we will always point this out to you. Furthermore, we only store the data that you have automatically or voluntarily provided us with.
If you use one of our services, we generally only collect the data that is necessary to offer you our service. It is possible that we may ask you for further information, but this is voluntary. Whenever we process personal data, we do so in order to provide you with our service or to pursue our commercial goals.
Automatically stored data
Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- Date and time of the request
- Name of the requested file
- Page from which the file was requested
- Access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
- Web browser and operating system used
- complete IP address of the requesting computer
- data volume transferred
This data is not merged with other data sources. Processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 letter f GDPR on the basis of our justified interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website.
For reasons of technical security, in particular to ward off attempts to attack our web server, this data is stored by us for a short period. It is not possible for us to draw conclusions about individual persons on the basis of this data. After seven days at the latest, the data is anonymised by shortening the IP address at domain level, so that it is no longer possible to establish a link to the individual user. In anonymised form, the data is also processed for statistical purposes; it is not compared with other data sets or passed on to third parties, even in part. Only in the context of our server statistics, which we publish every two years in our activity report, is a presentation of the number of page views.
This website uses the open source web analytics service Matomo. Matomo uses technologies that enable the recognition of the user across pages for the analysis of user behavior (e.g., device fingerprinting). The information collected by Matomo about the use of this website is stored on our server. The IP address is anonymized before storage.
With the help of Matomo, we are able to collect and analyze data about the use of our website by website visitors. This enables us to find out, among other things, when which page views were made and from which region they come. We also collect various log files (e.g., IP address, referrer, browsers and operating systems used) and can measure whether our website visitors perform certain actions (e.g., clicks, purchases, and the like).
The use of this analysis tool is based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the anonymized analysis of user behavior in order to optimize both its website and its advertising.
When analyzing with Matomo, we use IP anonymization. Your IP address is shortened before the analysis so that it can no longer be clearly assigned to you.
We host Matomo exclusively on our own servers so that all analysis data remains with us and is not passed on.
Matomo Tag Manager
This website uses the Matomo Tag Manager. It does not collect any personal data. It is used to run small programs (“tags” or “snippets”) on the website, which in turn may collect data. Matomo Tag Manager itself does not collect data, does not share data with third parties, and does not access data collected by tags triggered by Matomo Tag Manager.

This website uses CleverReach to send newsletters. The provider is CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, Schafjückenweg 2, 26180 Rastede, Germany (hereinafter “CleverReach”). CleverReach is a service with which the newsletter dispatch can be organized and analyzed. The data you enter for the purpose of receiving newsletters (e.g. e-mail address) is stored on CleverReach’s servers in Germany or Ireland.
Our newsletters sent with CleverReach enable us to analyze the behavior of the newsletter recipients. Among other things, we can analyze how many recipients have opened the newsletter message and how often which link in the newsletter was clicked. With the help of so-called conversion tracking, it can also be analyzed whether a predefined action (e.g. purchase of a product on this website) has taken place after clicking on the link in the newsletter. For more information on data analysis by CleverReach newsletters, please visit: https://www.cleverreach.com/de/funktionen/reporting-und-tracking/.
The data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
If you do not want any analysis by CleverReach, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a corresponding link in each newsletter message.
The data you have provided to us for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us or the newsletter service provider until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from the newsletter distribution list after you unsubscribe. Data that has been stored by us for other purposes remains unaffected by this.
We have concluded a contract on order processing (AV) pursuant to Art. 28 DSGVO with the above-mentioned provider. This is a contract required by data protection law, which ensures that this provider only processes the personal data of our website visitors in accordance with our instructions and in compliance with the DSGVO.
These are marketing cookies.
We have taken technical and administrative security measures to protect your personal data against loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorized access. All our employees as well as service providers working for us are obliged to comply with the applicable data protection laws.

Right of objection:
If we process your data out of a legitimate interest, you can object to this data processing at any time; this would also apply to profiling based on these provisions. We will then no longer process your data unless we can demonstrate compelling reasons for processing that are worthy of protection, which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. You may object to the processing of your data for the purpose of direct marketing at any time without giving reasons.
Right of appeal:
If you are of the opinion that we are processing your data in violation of German or European data protection law, please contact us so that we can clarify any questions you may have.
