If you want to visit our website, we collect the fol­lowing infor­mation that is tech­ni­cally necessary for us to display our website and to ensure the sta­bility, func­tio­n­ality and security of our website:

    • the ope­rating system used and its interface

The legal basis is our legi­timate interest in ensuring a smooth con­nection setup and a com­for­table use of the website as well as in the pos­si­bility to eva­luate system security and sta­bility and to pursue further admi­nis­trative pur­poses in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR.

  3. The data will not be passed on or used in any other way.

Further func­tions and offers of our website

  1. In addition to the purely infor­ma­tional use of our website, we offer various ser­vices which you can use if you are inte­rested. For this purpose, you must gene­rally provide further per­sonal data, which we use to perform the respective service and to which the afo­re­men­tioned data pro­cessing principles apply. In some cases we use external service pro­viders to process your data. These have been care­fully selected and com­mis­sioned by us, are bound by our inst­ruc­tions and are regu­larly checked.
  2. We may also pass on your per­sonal data to third parties if we cooperate with service pro­viders who offer you pro­mo­tions, lot­teries or similar.
  3. Fur­thermore, we inform you in the respective offer about a transfer of your data outside the European Eco­nomic Area (EEA).

Emails

  1. If you send us enquiries via e‑mail, your data will be stored for the purpose of ans­wering the enquiry and in the event of follow-up ques­tions. You will be required to provide your name and e‑mail address. Pro­viding a tele­phone number and other data is vol­untary and serves to faci­litate contact and to enable us to address you per­so­nally. These data are stored and used solely for the purpose of responding to your request or for estab­li­shing contact and the tech­nical admi­nis­tration. The legal basis for pro­cessing the data is our legi­timate interest in responding to your request in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Einsatz von Script­bi­blio­theken (Google Web­fonts)

  • In order to present our content cor­rectly and gra­phi­cally appe­aling across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries from Google Web­fonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/) on this website. Google web fonts are trans­ferred to your browser’s cache to avoid mul­tiple loading. If the browser does not support Google Web Fonts or pre­vents access, the content is dis­played in a standard font. The legal basis for the use of Google Web Fonts is our legi­timate interest in the correct graphic repre­sen­tation of our website in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit.f GDPR.
  • Calling up script libraries or font libraries auto­ma­ti­cally estab­lishes a con­nection to the library ope­rator. It is theo­re­ti­cally pos­sible – but cur­r­ently also unclear whether and, if so, for what pur­poses – that ope­rators of such libraries collect data.
  • You can find the privacy policy of the library ope­rator Google here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy
