7. Convenience functions

We use techniques such as Javascript or CSS (cascading style sheets) to optimize the display of our website, for example by adapting to different display sizes, using displayable menus or input control of our contact form. The use of these techniques can be disabled in your browser settings. Please be aware that some areas of our website may not function properly then.

8. Social Media

This website contains links to websites operated by social media platforms, for example facebook. You can identify them by their logos. When you visit our websites no personal data will be transferred to the social media platforms. If you click on a link you will be forwarded to the platform, where personal data may be transferred. By using the link you leave our website and we are not able to influence the collection or processing of data, the amount of collected data or storage periods.

If you click on a social media link, the social media platforms receive information about the page of our website visited by you. In addition, we transmit the data listed in the section “Data Collected when you visit our website”. This will happen regardless of you already having a social media account or being logged into an account. If you are logged into your personal social media account during your visit to our site, the platform will link data collected during your visit to the site of your account.

The social media provider stores personal data as user profiles and uses them for the purpose of advertisement, market statistics and individual website design. This analysis is used to provide the users with individual advertisements and to inform other users of this social media platform about your activities. You have the right to object to the creation of user profiles. To do so, please contact the provider of the respective social media platform.

Please refer to the social media platform´s privacy policy for more information on the purpose and scope of the data collection and its further processing by the social media platform.

9. Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics tool provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). In the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland, the service is provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files saved on your computer, to help the website to analyze how you use the site. The legal basis is Article 6 paragraph 1 s. 1 lit. a GDPR.

The information generated by the cookies and regarding your behavior when using the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. If the IP anonymization is activated, Google will truncate/anonymize the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before transferring data. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to Google servers in the USA and then shortened.

On behalf of the website provider, Google will use this information for the purpose of analyzing your behavior when you are using the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider. Google will not link your IP address to any other data stored by Google.

You may disable cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser. However, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. Furthermore, you can object to forwarding the data collected with cookies when you visit this website (including the IP address) to Google and prevent Google from processing of data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at

You can refuse the use of Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set on the computer, which prevents the future collection of your data when you visit this website:
Disable Google Analytics

Please be aware that if you choose to disable all cookies, also opt-out cookies will be disabled as well.

This website uses Google Analytics with the extension „_anonymizeIp()“. With this extension, all IP addresses will be shortened what makes it impossible to link data to a particular individual. If for some reason data can be linked to a specific individual this link will be directly excluded and personal data will be deleted.

Google Privacy Policy:

10. Google Tag Manager

We additionally use the Google Tag Manager. With this service we are able to manage website tags. The Google Tag Manager only sets up tags. Tags are code that is used to measure traffic and visitor behavior. The tags are provided by other services – in our case Google Analytics. The Google Tag Manager only manages these tags, does not set cookies and does not collect any personal data. If tracking is deactivated, this also applies to all tracking tags managed by the Google Tag Manager. (Legal basis for the use of Google Tag Manager is Article 6 paragraph 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR)

For more information about Google Tag Manager, please visit:

11. Integration of YouTube videos

We have included YouTube videos in our online offering, which are stored on and are directly playable from our website. These are all integrated in the “extended privacy mode”, which means that if you do not play the videos, you will not transfer any data about you as a user to YouTube. Only when you play the videos, the following data will be transmitted. We have no influence on this data transfer. (Legal basis is Article 6 paragraph 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR)

By visiting the website, YouTube receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our website. In addition, the data referred to in the section entitled “Data Collected when you visit our website” of this Declaration will be transmitted. This happens regardless of whether YouTube provides a user account that you are logged in to, or if there is no user account. When you’re logged in to Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not wish to associate with your profile on YouTube, you must log out before activating the button. YouTube stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for purposes of advertising, market research and / or tailor-made website design. Such an evaluation is done in particular (even for non-logged in users) to provide needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right to object to the creation of these User Profiles, and you must be directed to YouTube to use them.

For more information on the purpose and scope of the data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider, please refer to the provider’s privacy policy. There you will also find further information about your rights and settings options for the protection of your privacy:

12. Use of Usercentrics

On this website we use the Consent Management Tool Usercentrics of Usercentrics GmbH (Sendlinger Str. 7, 80331 Munich, Germany; “Usercentrics”). The tool enables you to give your consent to data processing via the website, in particular to set cookies, and to make use of your right of withdrawal for consent already given.
