  • The right to erasure of data of yours that is stored by us
  • The right to restriction of data processing, if legal obligations currently prevent us from deleting your data

If you have given us your consent, you can revoke this at any time with effect for the future.

You can lodge a complaint at any time with your competent supervisory authority. Your competent supervisory authority is assigned depending on the federal state of your residence, your work or the alleged violation.

We process your personal data only for the purposes stated in this data protection declaration. We do not transfer your personal data to third parties for purposes other than those stated. We will only disclose your personal data to third parties if:

  • you have given your express consent to this
  • the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with you
  • the processing is necessary in order to comply with a legal obligation

the processing is necessary in order to protect legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in not having your data disclosed


We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore store your personal data only for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or for the duration of the various storage periods stipulated by law. After the respective purpose has ceased to exist or these periods have expired, the corresponding data is routinely restricted or erased in accordance with the statutory provisions.


When you visit our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected via a cookie. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and the like. This is limited to information that does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person.

This information is technically necessary to correctly deliver the content of the website pages that you call up, and is collected as a matter of course when using the Internet. In particular, this information is processed for the following purposes:

  • Ensuring that the website connects smoothly
  • Ensuring problem-free use of our website
  • Evaluating system security and stability
  • Other administrative purposes

The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest arising from the aforementioned data collection purposes. We never use your data to draw conclusions about your person. The only recipients of the data are the controller and, if applicable, processors.

Anonymous information of this kind may be statistically evaluated by us in order to optimise our website and the technology behind it.


Like many other websites, we also use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. These automatically provide us with certain data such as your IP address, the browser used, the operating system and your connection to the Internet.

Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to a computer. The information contained in the cookies allows us to make navigation easier for you and ensures that our website pages are displayed correctly.

Under no circumstances will the data we collect be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.

You can also view our website without cookies, of course. Internet browsers are usually set up to accept cookies. However, you can deactivate the use of cookies at any time, if you wish, by changing the settings of your browser. If in doubt, use your web browser’s help menu for instructions on how to change these settings. Please note that some features of our website may not work if you have disabled the use of cookies.


When you contact us by email or via the contact form with enquiries of any kind, you give us your voluntary consent for the purpose of contacting you. In this case, you must provide a valid email address. This is used to assign the enquiry accordingly and to allow us to respond to it. The provision of further data is optional. The information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and for any follow-up questions. Once your enquiry has been dealt with, your personal data will be automatically deleted.


We reserve the right to adapt this data protection declaration so that it always complies with the current legal requirements, or in order to incorporate changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when new services are introduced. The new data protection declaration will then apply when you next visit the website.

This data protection declaration was created using the DATA PROTECTION DECLARATION GENERATOR OF ACTIVEMIND AG.


Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the Google Analytics web analysis service. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Google Analytics enables the website operator to analyse the behaviour of website visitors. The website operator receives various usage data, such as page views, length of visit, operating systems used and user location. This data may be summarised by Google in a profile that is attributed to the respective user or their end device.

Google Analytics uses technologies that enable recognition of the user for the purpose of analysing user behaviour (e.g. cookies or device fingerprinting). The information collected by Google about the use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

The use of this analytical tool is based on GDPR Art. 6(1)(f). The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise its website and advertising. If consent has been obtained accordingly (e.g. consent to the storage of cookies), the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of GDPR Art. 6(1)(a); the consent can be revoked at any time.

IP anonymisation

On this website, we have activated the IP anonymisation function. This means that, within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area, your IP address is shortened by Google before it is transmitted to the USA. The full IP address is transmitted to a Google server in the USA only in exceptional cases and is then shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator to evaluate your use of the website, to prepare reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services related to the use of the website and the Internet. The IP address transmitted from your browser for use by Google Analytics will not be merged with other data by Google.

Browser plug-in

To prevent the collection and processing of your data by Google, you can download and install the browser plug-in available under the following link:

For more information on how Google Analytics handles user data, please see Google’s privacy policy:

Contract processing

We have concluded a contract processing agreement with Google, and we comply fully with the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.

Storage period

Data that is stored by Google at user and event level and is linked to cookies, user identifiers (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs (e.g. DoubleClick cookies or Android advertising ID) is automatically deleted or anonymised after 14 months. Further details can be found via the following link:
