Personal data (e.g. your name, address data or contact data) that you voluntarily provide to us, e.g. in the context of an enquiry by e-mail to the contact persons named on our homepage, are stored with us and processed only for correspondence with you and only for the purpose for which you have made these data available to us. By submitting the contact form, you agree that we may store your data and use it for the purpose indicated by you. You can revoke your consent to advertising contact at any time by notifying us. Data processing is based on Art 6 lit.1 a) GDPR.

You can register on our website to use additional features on the site. We only use the data entered for using the respective offer or service for which you have registered. The mandatory information requested during registration must be given in full. Otherwise, we will reject the registration. For important changes, such as the scope of the offer or for technical changes, we use the e-mail address specified during registration to inform you in this way.

Data collection by Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. “(“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, and which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 lit. 1 f) GDPR.
However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will reduce your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other countries party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. We would like to point out that the code “anonymizelp” has been added to Google Analytics on this website to guarantee an anonymised version of the IP address.
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.
We use the service reCAPTCHA of Google Inc. (Google) to protect your inquiries via an internet form. The query serves to differentiate whether the input is made by a human being or abusively by automated, machine processing. The query includes sending the IP address and any other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google. For this purpose, your input will be transmitted to Google and used there. However, Google will previously reduce your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other contract states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website
Google Analytics Remarketing
Our websites use the features of Google Analytics Remarketing combined with the cross-device capabilities of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. Provider of this service is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. This feature allows you to link the advertising target groups created with Google Analytics Remarketing to the cross-device capabilities of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. In this way, interest-based, personalized advertising messages adapted to you based on your previous usage and browsing behavior on one end device (e.g., cell phone) may also be displayed on another of your end devices (e.g., tablet or PC). Once you have given your consent, Google will associate your web and app browsing history with your Google Account for this purpose. That way, the same personalized advertising messages can appear on any device you sign in to with your Google Account. To support this feature, Google Analytics collects Google-authenticated IDs of users who are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create audiences for cross-device ad promotion. You can permanently opt out of cross-device remarketing / targeting by turning off personalized advertising in your Google Account; follow this link:
Adwords and Google Conversion Tracking

Google Web Fonts
This site uses web fonts, provided by Google, for the uniform representation of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly. To do this, the browser you use must connect to Google’s servers. As a result, Google learns that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a consistent and attractive presentation of our online services. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. If your browser does not support web fonts, a default font will be used by your computer. For more information about Google Web Fonts, see
