Cookies

Our web­site uses so-called cook­ies. Cook­ies do not harm your com­put­er and do not con­tain virus­es. Cook­ies serve to make our home­page more user-friend­ly, effec­tive and secure. Cook­ies are small text files that are stored on your com­put­er and stored by your brows­er. Most of the cook­ies we use are so-called “ses­sion cook­ies”. They are auto­mat­i­cal­ly delet­ed when you leave our web pres­ence. Oth­er cook­ies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cook­ies allow us to rec­og­nize your brows­er the next time you vis­it. You can set your brows­er so that you are informed about the set­ting of cook­ies to per­mit cook­ies only in indi­vid­ual cas­es, the accep­tance of cook­ies for cer­tain cas­es or gen­er­al­ly exclude and acti­vate the auto­mat­ic dele­tion of cook­ies when clos­ing the brows­er. Dis­abling cook­ies may lim­it the func­tion­al­i­ty of this website.

The provider of the pages process­es infor­ma­tion for vis­it­ing the web­site in serv­er log files. The data will be auto­mat­i­cal­ly trans­mit­ted to us by your brows­er. These are: brows­er type and brows­er ver­sion, oper­at­ing sys­tem used, refer­rer URL, host name of the access­ing com­put­er, time of serv­er request. The data is not assigned to spe­cif­ic per­sons. A merge of this data with oth­er data sources will not be car­ried out. If nec­es­sary, we check this data if there are indi­ca­tions of ille­gal use. The legal basis is Art. 6 (1) sen­tence 1 lit. f DS-GMO. A trans­fer or oth­er use of the data does not take place.

Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts)

 To make our con­tent brows­er-friend­ly and graph­i­cal­ly accu­rate, we use Google Web Script script libraries and font libraries (https://www.google.com/webfonts/) on this site. Google web fonts are trans­ferred to the cache of your brows­er to pre­vent mul­ti­ple load­ing. If the brows­er does not sup­port Google Web fonts or pro­hibits access, con­tent will be dis­played in a stan­dard font. Legal basis for the use of Google Web­fonts is our legit­i­mate inter­est in the cor­rect graph­i­cal rep­re­sen­ta­tion of our web­site. Art. 6 para. 1 sen­tence 1 lit. f DSGVO.
The appli­ca­tion of script libraries or font libraries auto­mat­i­cal­ly estab­lish­es a con­nec­tion to the oper­a­tor of the library. It is the­o­ret­i­cal­ly pos­si­ble — but cur­rent­ly also unclear whether and if so for what pur­pos­es — that oper­a­tors of such libraries col­lect data.

The pri­va­cy pol­i­cy of the library oper­a­tor Google can be found here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

Objection to advertising emails

The con­tact data pub­lished in the imprint may not be used for adver­tis­ing and send­ing infor­ma­tion mate­ri­als. We reserve the right to take legal action in case of infringement.

Changes to this privacy policy

We reserve the right to change our pri­va­cy poli­cies if nec­es­sary due to new tech­nol­o­gy. Please make sure you have the lat­est version.
