Personal Data

The use of our website is generally possible without specifying personal data. If personal data (for example name, mailing address or e-mail address) is collected on our pages, this always occurs on a voluntary basis. This data will be treated as strictly confidential and will not be shared with third parties without your express consent.
We would like to point out that the transfer of data on the internet (e.g. during communication by e-mail) may have security gaps. We cannot guarantee complete protection of your data against access by third parties.
Third-party use of contact data published within the scope of the imprint requirement for the transmission of unsolicited advertising and information material is expressly prohibited. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the sending of any such unsolicited advertising material, such as through spam e-mails.


Our services include links to external third-party websites; we have no influence on their content. For this reason, we cannot assume any guarantee for the accuracy of this external content. Each provider or operator of those sites is always responsible for the content of the linked sites. The linked sites were checked for possible legal violations at the time they were linked. Illegal content was not discernable at the time of the linking. Permanent monitoring of the content of the linked sites is, however, not reasonable without concrete indication of illegal activities. Once the existence of a legal infringement becomes known, we will remove such links immediately.

The analysis of this data preserves the anonymity of all of our customers. For this purpose, this website uses Piwik, a real time web analytics open-source software. Piwik uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site.
