The use of the website is generally possible without providing personal data. As far as personal data (such as name, address or e-mail addresses) are collected, this is as far as possible on a voluntary basis. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

The responsible body decides alone or jointly with others on the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. names, contact details or similar).

Contact form

Data transmitted via the contact form is stored in order to process your inquiry or to be available for follow-up questions. This is only done locally. No data is processed on a server. This data will not be passed on without your consent.

The processing of the data entered in the contact form is based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). A revocation of your already given consent is possible at any time. An informal communication by e-mail is sufficient for the revocation. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Data transmitted via the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or there is no longer any need to store it. Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

SSL encryption

In order to protect your transmitted data in the best possible way, this website uses SSL encryption. SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a hybrid encryption protocol for secure data transmission on the Internet. You can recognize such encrypted connections by the prefix https:// in the page link in the address line of your browser. In contrast, unencrypted pages are marked by http://.

All data that you transmit to this website, for example when using the contact form, cannot be read by third parties thanks to SSL encryption.


This website does not store any cookies. Furthermore, it does not use any external services and therefore does not set any “third-party cookies”. Third-party cookies” are cookies that are stored by providers other than the controller. Thus, there is no unwanted data exchange with external service providers. Personal data is only transmitted if it is sent accordingly on the user’s own initiative, for example via the contact form.

Cookies” are small files that are stored on the end devices of visitors to a website. Various data can be stored within the cookies. The primary purpose of a cookie is to store information about a user (or the device on which the cookie is stored) during or even after his visit within an online offer. Stored cookies can be deleted in the system settings of the browser. This website does not store cookies.

There is no merging of this data with other data sources. The data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfillment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

Right to information, correction, blocking, deletion

Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, the origin of the data, their recipients and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data.
