Visiting our website. You can visit our website without leaving any information about yourself. However, anonymous background data (such as browser, operating system and provider details, IP address, file, data volume, date/time, previously visited website) is technically transmitted, which is stored in log files at the web hosting company in accordance with legal requirements and deleted after prescribed periods. As an individual user, you remain anonymous, but this data could be analyzed professionally, e.g. in the course of a criminal offence, which would at least theoretically lead to a specific user. We do not carry out any analysis using tracking pixels, tracking or reach measurement, nor do we evaluate the background data for marketing purposes.

Cookies. Cookies are pieces of information that are transferred from our web server or third-party web servers to the user’s web browser and stored there for later retrieval. Cookies can be small files or other types of information storage.

We use “session cookies”, which are only stored for the duration of the current visit to our online presence (e.g. to enable the storage of your login status and thus the use of our online offer at all). A randomly generated unique identification number, a so-called session ID, is stored in a session cookie. A cookie also contains information about its origin and the storage period. These cookies cannot store any other data. Session cookies are deleted when you have finished using our online offer and log out or close the browser, for example.

Third-party cookies are also used on our website through the integration of third-party content (see section “Integration of third-party content/functions”). Some of these are also session cookies, but it can be assumed that other cookies are used to measure reach, analyze user behavior or for marketing purposes.

If you do not want cookies to be stored on your computer, you can activate or deactivate the corresponding option in the system settings of your browser. Stored cookies can also be deleted in the browser’s system settings. However, the exclusion of cookies can lead to functional restrictions in the presentation and function of our website.

Third-party access to personal data. The operation of a website includes service and maintenance as well as hosting, i.e. the storage of website elements on the server of a hosting provider/provider. The provider has its registered office and technical infrastructure, including the servers, in Germany, but this does not completely rule out the possibility that individual connections via the Internet may also be made via servers in third countries. Theoretically, the provider’s employees, but also those of the other technical infrastructures of the Internet (such as other server and node operators) as well as those of the web agency in charge have access to the website and parts of the communication, at least in theory. However, these service providers are also subject to the applicable data protection regulations and are bound by corresponding data processing agreements to ensure diligence and reliability.

Technical and organizational measures. We have taken organizational and technical measures in accordance with the state of the art to ensure that the provisions of data protection laws are complied with and to protect the website against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons. The security measures include, in particular, the encrypted transmission of data between your browser and our server. Encrypted transmission (SSL or TLS) is normally indicated by a lock symbol and the protocol designation “https” in the address bar of the browser.

Integration of third-party content/functions. We use offers from third-party providers on this website to improve the attractiveness and functionality of the website (such as an integrated Google map). These service providers may use technologies to analyze user habits. To ensure that the integrated content and technologies function correctly, your IP address and any other technical background data may be transmitted to the servers of the service providers. The respective providers are responsible for the specific functionality of the third-party applications, but they are also subject to data protection. In this case, these are
