Our web­site can nor­mal­ly be used wit­hout any per­so­nal data being pro­vi­ded. If per­so­nal data (e.g. name, address or email address) are coll­ec­ted on our pages, this is done as far as pos­si­ble based on vol­un­t­a­ry pro­vi­si­on. The­se data are not pas­sed on to third par­ties wit­hout your express consent.

We would like to point out that secu­ri­ty gaps may exist when data are trans­mit­ted over the inter­net (e.g. in com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons via email). Com­ple­te pro­tec­tion of data from third-par­ty access is not possible.


Some of our web pages use so-cal­led coo­kies. Coo­kies do not cau­se any dama­ge to your com­pu­ter and do not con­tain any viru­s­es. Coo­kies ser­ve to make our web­site more user-fri­end­ly, effec­ti­ve and secu­re. Coo­kies are small text files that are pla­ced on your com­pu­ter and saved by your brow­ser. Most of the coo­kies we use are so-cal­led ses­si­on coo­kies. They are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly dele­ted after your visit ends. Other coo­kies stay on your device unless you dele­te them. The­se coo­kies help us iden­ti­fy your brow­ser the next time you visit.

You can set your brow­ser so that you are infor­med about the set­ting of coo­kies and only allow coo­kies in indi­vi­du­al cases, block coo­kies for spe­ci­fic cases or in gene­ral and acti­va­te auto­ma­tic dele­ti­on of coo­kies when you clo­se your brow­ser. If you deac­ti­va­te coo­kies, the func­tion­a­li­ty of this web­site may be restricted.
