Data Protection
The operators of this website take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your
personal data confidentially and according to the legal data protection regulations and this Privacy Policy.
The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data. Personal data, such as
names, addresses or email addresses, are always provided on a voluntary basis when possible. Those
data will not be passed on to third parties without your explicit permission.
However, we would like to point out that data transmissions via internet (e.g email communication) cannot
be entirely secure and may have security vulnerabilities. A complete protection of personal details against
unauthorised access by third parties is not possible.

This website partially uses so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause damage to your computer and do not
contain viruses. Cookies allow us to make our product more user-friendly, more efficient and more secure.
Cookies are small text files, stored by your browser on your computer.
Most cookies that we use are so-called “session cookies”. They will be deleted automatically after the end
of your visit. Other cookies remain on your terminal device until you delete them. Those cookies enable us
to recognise your browser on your next visit.
You can adjust your browser to inform you when cookies are placed, to individually allow cookies, or to
generally exclude cookies in certain cases, as well as to activate the automatic deletion of cookies when
closing the browser. The deactivation of cookies may impair the functionality of this website.

The provider of these websites automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files
which your browser automatically transmits to us, such as:

Those data cannot be associated with individual persons. We do not merge this data with other sources.
We reserve the right to retrospectively check the data if there is any indication of illegal use.
