To help you understand what personal data we collect from you and for what purposes we use it, please read the information below.

1. Do we already collect data from you when you visit our site?

When you visit our website, our servers temporarily save each access in a log file. The following technical data is collected without your intervention, as is generally the case with every connection to a web server, and is stored by us until it is automatically deleted:

  • the IP address of the requesting computer,
  • the date and time of access,
  • the website from which the access was made (referrer URL), if applicable with the search term used,
  • the name and URL of the retrieved file,
  • the status code (e.g. error message),
  • the operating system of your computer,
  • the browser you use (type, version and language),
  • the amount of data transferred and
  • the transmission protocol used (e.g. HTTP/1.1).

The collection and processing of this data is carried out for the purpose of enabling the use of our website (connection establishment), to permanently guarantee system security and system stability and to enable the optimisation of our internet offer as well as for internal statistical purposes. This is our legitimate interest in processing the data.

The IP address is also evaluated together with the other data in the event of attacks on the network infrastructure or other unauthorised or abusive website use for the purpose of clarification and de-fence and, if necessary, used in the context of criminal proceedings to identify and take civil and criminal action against the users concerned. This is our legitimate interest in processing the data.

The IP addresses are stored anonymously by our host. To do this, the last one to three digits are removed, i.e. “” becomes “”. IPv6 addresses are also anonymised. The anony-mised IP addresses are retained for 60 days.

Error logs, which record faulty page views, are deleted after seven days. In addition to the error messages, these contain the accessing IP address and, depending on the error, the accessed website.

2. What data do we collect when you use our contact form?

You have the option of using a contact form to get in touch with us. For this purpose, we require the following mandatory information:

  • Surname, first name
  • E-mail address
  • Telephone number (optional)
  • Message text

We only use this data to be able to answer your contact request in the best possible and personal-ised way. The processing of this data is therefore in our legitimate interest.

2.a Use of Google reCAPTCHA for the contact form

This website uses the reCAPTCHA service of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). The purpose of the query is to distinguish whether the input for forms is made by a human or by automated, machine processing. In this way, we can avoid auto-matic filling of the contact form with unsolicited messages.

The query includes the sending of the IP address and possibly further data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google. For this purpose, your input will be transmitted to Google and used there. However, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address and other data be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. According to Google, the IP address transmitted by your browser as part of reCaptcha is not merged with other Google data. By clicking on the query, you consent to the processing of your data.
