7. server log files

Every time a user accesses this website and every time a file is called up, data on this process is stored in a log file. This storage is for internal, system-related and statistical purposes only. In detail, the following data record is stored for each retrieval:

- IP address of the accessing computer/device

This data is not merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to check this data subsequently if we become aware of concrete indications of illegal use.


8. SSL encryption

This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.


9. cookies

This website uses cookies. Java-Script is used to handle the cookies. Java applets and Active-X controls are not used. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make the website offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. 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 at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit us. You can set your browser to inform you about the setting of cookies and to allow cookies only in individual cases, to exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, and to activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.


10. external links

This website contains links to third-party websites ("external links"). These websites are subject to the liability of the respective operators. When the external links were first created, the provider checked the third-party content for any legal violations. At that time, no legal violations were apparent. The provider has no influence on the current and future design and content of the linked pages. The inclusion of external links does not imply that the provider adopts the content behind the reference or link as its own. It is not reasonable to expect the provider to constantly monitor external links without concrete evidence of legal violations. However, in the event of knowledge of legal violations, such external links will be deleted immediately.


11. copyrights and ancillary copyrights

The contents published on this website are subject to copyright and ancillary copyright law. Any use not permitted by copyright and ancillary copyright law requires the prior written consent of the provider or the respective rights holder. This applies in particular to copying, editing, translation, storage, processing or reproduction of contents in databases or other electronic media and systems. Contents and rights of third parties are marked as such. Unauthorised reproduction or transmission of individual contents or complete pages is not permitted and is punishable by law. Only the production of copies and downloads for personal, private and non-commercial use is permitted. The presentation of this website in external frames is only permitted with written permission.


12. limitation of liability

The contents of this website are created with the greatest possible care. However, the provider does not guarantee the accuracy, completeness and timeliness of the content provided. The use of the contents of the website is at the user's own risk. Contributions identified by name reflect the opinion of the respective author and not always the opinion of the provider. The mere use of the provider's website does not constitute a contractual relationship between the user and the provider.

According to "YouTube", the purpose of these cookies is to collect video statistics, improve the user experience and prevent abusive behaviour. Regardless of whether or not the embedded videos are played, every time you visit this website, a connection to the Google "DoubleClick" network is established, which may trigger further data processing operations without our influence. If you are logged in as a member of YouTube, YouTube associates this information with your personal account on that platform.

Notes on data processing in connection with Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited. If the data controller on this website is located outside the European Economic Area or Switzerland, then the Google Analytics data processing is carried out by Google LLC. Google LLC and Google Ireland Limited are hereinafter referred to as "Google".

Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on the computer of the site visitor, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website by the site visitor (including the shortened IP address) is usually transmitted to a Google server and stored there.

Google Analytics is used exclusively with the extension "_anonymizeIp()" on this website. This extension ensures anonymization of the IP address by shortening it and excludes direct personal reference. Through the extension, the IP address is shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by the corresponding browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

On behalf of the site operator, Google will use the information collected to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide further services to the site operator in connection with the use of the website and the Internet (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). The legitimate interest in the data processing lies in the optimisation of this website, the analysis of the use of the website and the adaptation of the contents. The interests of the users are sufficiently protected by the pseudonymisation.

Google LLC. is certified according to the so-called Privacy Shield (list entry here) and guarantees on this basis an appropriate level of data protection. The data sent and linked to cookies, user IDs (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 50 months. Data whose retention period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month.

The collection by Google Analytics can be prevented by adjusting the cookie settings for this website. The collection and storage of the IP address and the data generated by cookies can also be refused at any time with effect for the future. The corresponding browser plugin can be downloaded and installed under the following link:

The visitor can prevent Google Analytics from collecting data on this website by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent future collection of data when visiting this website.

Further information on the use of data by Google, setting and objection options, can be found in the privacy policy of Google( and in the settings for the display of advertising by Google(



In order to protect your requests via internet form we use the service reCAPTCHA of the company Google LLC (Google). The query serves to differentiate whether the input is made by a human being or abusively by automated, machine processing. The query includes the sending of the IP address and possibly other data required by Google for the service reCAPTCHA to Google. For this purpose, your input will be transmitted to Google and used there. Your IP address will, however, be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is used. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of this service. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of reCaptcha is not combined with other data from Google. For these data the deviating data protection regulations of the enterprise Google apply. You can find further information on Google's privacy policy at:
