We use the "Matomo" web analysis tool to tailor our website to your needs. Matomo creates usage profiles based on fingerprints (including the hash value of the operating system, browser, browser plug-ins, anonymized IP address and browser language). No cookies are set. In this way we are able to recognize returning visitors and count them as such. Data processing takes place on the basis of your consent in accordance with Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR or Section 15 (3) sentence 1 TMG, provided that you have given your consent via our banner.
You can withdraw your consent at any time. Please follow this link and make the appropriate settings via our banner.

You have the option of contacting us using our contact form. To use our contact form, we first need the data marked as mandatory fields from you. We use this data on the basis of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR to answer your request. In addition, you can decide for yourself whether you would like to provide us with further information. This information is provided voluntarily and is not absolutely necessary to contact you. We process your voluntary information on the basis of your consent in accordance with Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR.

Your data will only be processed to answer your request. We delete your data if it is no longer required and if there are no statutory retention requirements.

5. External services and content on our website

We integrate external services or content on our website. If you use such a service or if third party content is displayed to you, communication data between you and the respective provider is automatically exchanged.

It may also be the case that the provider of the respective services or content processes your data for its own, alternative purposes. We have configured services or content from providers that are known to use data for their own purposes to the best of our knowledge and belief in such a way that there is no communication for purposes other than for display of the content or services on our website or that communication only takes place if you actively decide to use the service. Since we have no influence on the data collected by third parties and how they process it, we are unable to give definitive information about the purpose and scope of the processing of your data.

Further information about the purpose and scope of the collection and processing of your data can therefore be found in the data protection notice of the respective data protection-compliant provider of the services or content integrated by us.

We embed videos on our websites that are not stored on our servers. Calling up our pages with embedded videos results in the content of the third-party provider providing the videos being reloaded. In this way, the third-party provider receives the information that you have accessed our site and the usage data that is technically required in this context. We have no influence on further data processing by the third party provider. The embedding is carried out on the basis of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR and in the interest of making our website as appealing and informative as possible.
