This information might be about you, your preferences or your device and is mostly used to make the site work as you expect it to. The information does not usually directly identify you, but it can give you a more personalized web experience. Because we respect your right to privacy, you can choose not to allow some types of cookies. Click on the different category headings to find out more and change our default settings.

Collecting general information
When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected. This includes information (server log files) such as the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider etc. This exclusively concerns information that does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about you. This information is necessary for technical reasons in order to correctly deliver the website content you require and is mandatory when using the internet. We statistically evaluate anonymous information of this kind in order to optimise our website and the technology behind it.
In order to protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) over HTTPS.
If you contact us by email or use the contact form, the information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing the request as well as for possible follow-up questions.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting your browser settings accordingly; however, please note that you may not be able to enjoy full website functionality in this case. You can also prevent Google from collecting and processing the data generated by cookies and related to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: Browser add-on to deactivate Google Analytics.

We embed YouTube videos on some of our websites. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection is made to YouTube servers, which informs YouTube of which pages you visit. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube can assign your browsing behaviour to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.
If you have disabled the storage of cookies for the Google Ad program, such cookies will not be used even when viewing YouTube videos. However, YouTube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in your browser.
For more information on privacy at YouTube, please refer to the provider's privacy statement at: https://policies.google.com/privacy
In order to display our content correctly and in a graphically appealing manner across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries on our website, such as those from Google (https://developers.google.com/speed/libraries/).
Accessing script libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library operator. It is theoretically possible for operators of corresponding libraries to collect data, though it is currently unclear whether they do and if so for what purposes.
The data protection policy of the library operator Google can be found here: https://policies.google.com/privacy
Rights to information, rectification, blocking, deletion and objection
You have the right to access information about your personal data stored by us at any time. You also have the right to rectify, block or, with the exception of the storage of data required for business processing, delete your personal data.
In order to enable data to be blocked at any time, this data must be kept in a lock file for monitoring purposes. You may also request the deletion of the data, unless there is a legal archiving obligation. If such an obligation exists, we will block your data on request.
You may amend or withdraw your consent with future effect by informing us accordingly.
We reserve the right to adapt this privacy statement from time to time so that it consistently meets the current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the privacy statement, such as when introducing new services. The new privacy statement will apply when you next visit the website.
