Cookies

These web pages use cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies allow for our services to be more user-friendly, more effective, and more secure. Cookies are small text files, which are stored on your computer, saved by your browser.

The majority of the cookies on our website are “session-cookies”. They are automatically deleted once you leave our site. Other cookies stay stored on your device until they are deleted by you. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser on your next visit.

You can adjust your browser settings so that your browser always informs you of requests to store cookies on your devices. Thus you can choose on an individual basis, to allow cookies in certain cases or generally block them, as well as to activate automatic deletion of cookies on closing the web browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be limited.

The website provider automatically collects and stores data in server log files, which your browser automatically transfers to us. These are:

• Browser type and version
• Operating system used
• Referrer URL
• Host name of the accessing computer
• Time of the server request


These data cannot be assigned to any particular person. Compilation of these data with data from other sources will not be carried out. We reserve the right to retrospective verification of these data if we become aware of any concrete evidence of illegal use.

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on our website, we need an E-mail address from you as well as information allowing us to carry out a verification that you are the owner of the E-mail address given, and that you consent to receiving newsletters. No further data are collected. We use this information solely for the purpose of sending the information as requested, and it will not be passed on to third parties.

Data privacy statement for use of Piwik

This website uses the open source web analytics service Piwik. Piwik uses “cookies”. These are text files which are stored on your computer and make the analysis of your use of the website possible. The information created by the cookies on the use of our website will therefore also be stored on our service. The IP address is anonymized before storing the data.

The information created by the cookie on the use of our website will not be passed on to third parties. You may refuse to store cookies by selecting the appropriate settings within your browser software; we would like to point out, however, that by doing so not all the features of this website will be usable to their full extent.

If you do not consent to the storage and use of your data, you can deactivate this storage and usage here. In doing so, an opt-out cookie is saved on your computer which prevents Piwik from saving usage data. If you delete your cookies, the Piwik opt-out cookie will also be deleted. The opt-out will need reactivating by visiting our website once again.
