Data backup

We have taken extensive technical and organisational measures to protect your data against possible risks, such as unauthorised access, unauthorised disclosure, modification or dissemination, as well as against loss, destruction or misuse.
In order to protect your personal data from unauthorised access by third parties during transmission, we secure data transmissions using SSL encryption where necessary. This is a standardised encryption method for online services, especially for the web.


Every time our website is accessed, usage data is transmitted by the respective Internet browser and stored in log files, the so-called server log files. The stored data records contain the following data: Domain from which the user accesses the website, date and time of access IP address of the accessing computer Website(s) visited by the user within the scope of the offer, amount of data transferred, browser type and version, operating system used, name of the Internet service provider, message as to whether the access was successful. These log file data records are evaluated in anonymised form in order to improve the offer and make it more user-friendly, to find and correct errors and to control the utilisation of servers.

Data-saving usage analysis

We process various personal data in order to analyse the use of our website. This includes in particular your IP address and how our website is used, e.g. which button or link is clicked on a certain web subpage, from which subpage you have reached the current subpage and how long you remain on a certain web subpage. for this purpose, an identification number is created when the website is called up, which is linked to the IP address with which you visit our website for a period of 7 days. We will not store your IP address for longer than is technically necessary, so that the identification number can no longer be assigned to you as a person after a short time (anonymisation).

Each time a subpage or certain other actions (e.g. clicking on certain buttons) are called up on our website, a further number is generated with the help of the identification number, the time of the action and a value permanently assigned to the respective action. In this way, the action can be assigned to the identification number and its path on our website can be traced anonymously. This creates a user profile. In contrast to many other analysis tools, however, the user profile is very short-lived and only exists for as long as it is needed to enable us to track the use of our website by its visitors. Your visitor behaviour is not tracked beyond the boundaries of our website, used for targeted advertising or shared with third parties. We also strictly protect the integrity of your end device. We neither read data stored on your end device nor do we store data on your device (no cookies).the legal basis for processing is our legitimate interest in optimising our website for use by our users (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR).we use the data protection-friendly toolreportic of the provider never final GbR (Eifflerstraße 43, 22769 Hamburg). All personal data that we transmit to never final is processed exclusively on servers in Germany. You can find reportic's privacy policy and an opt-out option here.


This website uses so-called cookies. A cookie is a text file with an identification number that is transmitted to the user's computer together with the other data actually requested when the website is used and stored there. The file is stored there for later access and serves to authenticate the user. As cookies are only simple files and not executable programmes, they pose no danger to the computer. Depending on the settings selected by the user, the Internet browser automatically accepts cookies. However, this setting can be changed and the storage of cookies deactivated or set in such a way that the user is notified as soon as a cookie is set. However, if the use of cookies is deactivated, some functions of the website may not be available or may only be available to a limited extent. You can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Cookies that are already active can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programmes.

Google Maps

On our website we use Google Maps (API) from Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). Google Maps is a web service for displaying interactive (land) maps in order to visualise geographical information. By using this service, you are shown our location and it is easier for you to find us. Information about your use of our website (such as your IP address) is transmitted to Google servers in the USA and stored there as soon as you access the subpages in which the Google Maps map is integrated. This takes place regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not wish your data to be associated with your Google profile, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and analyses them. Such distribution is carried out in particular in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit.f GDPR on the basis of Google's legitimate interests in the display of personalised advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of its website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google to exercise this right. Detailed information on data protection in connection with the use of Google Maps can be found on the Google website ("Google Privacy Policy"):

Google Fonts

We use Google Fonts, a service provided by Google Inc ("Google"). These web fonts are integrated by a server call, usually a Google server in the USA. This tells the server which of our web pages you have visited. The IP address of the browser of the end device of the visitor to this website is also stored by Google. You can find more information in Google's privacy policy, which you can access here:


Plugins from the Vimeo video portal of Vimeo, LLC, 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA are integrated on our website. When you access a page on our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Vimeo servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Vimeo directly to your browser and integrated into the page. Through this integration, Vimeo receives the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Vimeo account or are not currently logged in to Vimeo. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to a Vimeo server in the USA and stored there. If you are logged in to Vimeo, Vimeo can directly associate your visit to our website with your Vimeo account. If you interact with the plugins (e.g. by clicking the start button of a video), this information is also transmitted directly to a Vimeo server and stored there. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Vimeo as well as your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy can be found in Vimeo's data protection information:


This website uses the YouTube embedding function to display and play videos from the provider YouTube, which belongs to Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). The extended data protection mode is used here, which, according to the provider, only initiates the storage of user information when the video(s) is/are played. If the playback of embedded YouTube videos is started, the provider "YouTube" uses cookies to collect information about user behaviour. According to information from "YouTube", these are used, among other things, to record video statistics, improve user-friendliness and prevent abusive behaviour. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account when you click on a video. If you do not wish your data to be associated with your YouTube profile, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and analyses them. Such distribution is carried out in particular in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR on the basis of Google's legitimate interests in the display of personalised advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of its website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact YouTube to exercise this right. Irrespective of any reproduction of the embedded videos, a connection to the Google "DoubleClick" network is established each time this website is accessed, which may trigger further data processing operations without our influence. Google LLC, based in the USA, is certified for the US-European data protection agreement "Privacy Shield", which guarantees compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU.
