This website uses so-called cookies.
Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses.
Cookies serve to make our website more user-friendly, more effective and safer.
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies".
They are automatically deleted after the end of your visit.
Other cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them.
These cookies allow us to recognize your browser on your next visit.
You can change your browser settings so that you are informed about the setting
of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies
for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when
closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.
If you have given your consent, this website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided
by Google LLC. The use includes the Universal Analytics operating mode. This makes it
possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID
and thus analyze the activities of a user across devices.
Google Analytics uses so-called cookies. These are text files that are stored on your computer and
enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie
about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server and stored there.
In the event that IP anonymization is activated on this website, however, your IP address
will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other
contracting states to 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.
We would like to point out that, on this website, Google Analytics has been extended by an
IP anonymization in order to ensure an anonymized collection of IP addresses
(so-called IP masking). The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google
Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google. For more information on terms

Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. You can revoke an existing consent at any time. An informal message via e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right of appeal to the supervisory authority
In the case of violations of data protection law, the person concerned has the right of appeal to the supervisory authority. The supervisory authority for data protection issues is the state data protection officer of the federal state in which our company is based.
Right for data portability
You have the right to retrieve data that we process on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract, in itself or to a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you require the direct transfer of data to another person in charge, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.

If SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, the data you submit to us can not be read by third parties.
