Personal data

Personal data are data relating to you personally. These may include your name, your address, and your email address. You do not have to disclose any personal data to visit our website. In some cases, we require your name and address along with further details to be able to provide you with the services you desire.

The same applies when we send you information material you have asked for, or when we answer your queries. In these cases, we will always inform you about the need to collect your data. Apart from that, we only store data you have disclosed to us automatically or voluntarily.

Should you use one of our services, we usually collect only the data that we need in order to provide our services to you. We may ask you for additional information which can be provided on a voluntary basis. Whenever we process personal data, we will do so in order to be able to offer our service to you or to realise our commercial goals.

Automatically stored non-personal data

For administrative and technical reasons, we store certain information when you visit our web page. These may include: Type and version of the used browser, date and time of access, and the IP address.

This data is anonymised and used exclusively for statistical purposes or to improve our Internet and online services.
The anonymised data is separated from the personal data and stored on secure systems; it cannot be assigned to individual persons. This means that your personal data will be protected at all times.


During your visits to our web pages, we may save information, stored as cookies, on your computer. Cookies are small text files transmitted to your browser by an Internet server and stored on its hard disk. The legal basis for the use of cookies is point (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR.
With the exception of the Internet Protocol address, no other personal data will be stored. The information which is stored in the cookies allows us to automatically recognise you on your next visit to our website, making it easier for you to use it.

You can of course surf our website without accepting cookies. In the event that you do not wish your computer to be recognised during your next visit, you may refuse the use of cookies by changing the browser settings to “refuse cookies”. The respective required procedure is described in the manual of your browser. Should you refuse the use of cookies, however, some parts of our web pages may not be fully functional.

Google-Analytics with anonymisation feature

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as "Google". Google Analytics uses “cookies”, text files stored on your computer, allowing for an analysis of your use of our website.

The information generated by the cookie, such as the time, place and frequency of your visit to the site and including your IP address is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

On our website, we use Google Analytics with the extension code "_gat._anonymizeIp". This means that your IP address will already be abbreviated, and therefore anonymised, in the member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

Google will use this information to analyse your use of our website, to compile reports about the website activity for us and to provide further services related to the use of this website and of the Internet. If legally required, or if third parties process these data on behalf of Google, Google may forward these data to third parties. 

Google has stated that it will never associate your IP address with any other Google data. You can prevent cookies from being saved by changing the settings of your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not have full access to all the features of this website.

For the most common browsers, Google offers a deactivation add-on which grants you greater control over the data collected by Google regarding the web paged accessed by you. This add-on informs Google Analytics’ JavaScript (ga.js) that no information about your visit to the web page is to be transmitted to Google Analytics. The deactivation add-on for browsers provided by Google Analytics does not, however, prevent your information from being transferred to us or to other web analytics services installed by us. For further information on the installation of the browser add-on, please follow this link:

Should you access our page via a mobile device (smartphone or tablet), you will need to click this link instead in order to prevent future tracking by Google Analytics on this web page. This alternative may also be chosen instead of the above-mentioned browser add-on. By clicking the link, an opt-out cookie is placed into your browser which is valid only for this particular browser and domain. Should you delete the cookies in this respective browser, the opt-out cookie will be deleted as well. You will therefore need to click the link again.

If you agreed to having Google link your web and app browser history to your Google account and use information from your Google account to personalise advertisement, Google will use your data in combination with Google Analytics data in order to create target group lists for cross-device remarketing. For this purpose, Google Analytics will, in a first step, collect your Google authenticated ID, linked to your Google account (therefore personal data) on our website. Google Analytics will thereafter link your ID temporarily to your Google Analytics data with the aim of optimising our target groups.

Should you not agree to this procedure, you may disable it by modifying the respective settings in the section “My account” in your Google account.
