To ensure that you feel safe and secure while visiting our web pages, we would like to inform you how this website processes your personal data.


In order to improve the quality of our website, we store data about each access on our website for statistical analysis. This data record contains:

  • referring web site,
  • name of file,
  • date and time of access,
  • transmitted volume of data,
  • the access status (file transmitted, file not found),
  • type of web browser used,
  • IP address of your computer (truncated by three digits)

This data is stored in an anonymised form in accordance with the German Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz, TMG). Hence it is not possible to create personal usage profiles.


We do not transfer your personal data to third parties.


Cookies are small text files that are stored on the hard drive of a visitor’s device. Cookies allow information to be stored for a certain period of time and the user’s device to be identified. Permanent cookies help us to make our website more user-friendly and effective. Furthermore, we also use session cookies, which will automatically be deleted once you close your browser. To render the usage of cookies transparent to you, you can set your browser to inform you of the potential downloading of cookies.


This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files placed on your computer to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will usually be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the USA.

As IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be truncated by Google within the area of Member States of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the whole IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA first and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to create relevant reports on website activities and to provide other services concerning the website and internet usage to us.

You may refuse the creation and usage of this anonymous user profile at any time according to the following options:

  1. You can opt out from being tracked by Google Analytics within this website in the future (this opt-out applies only for the browser in which you set it and within this domain) by storing an opt-out cookie on your device, which means that you'll have to click the following link again if you delete your cookies.
