Data protection

The operators of these sites take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We handle your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.

The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data. If personal data (for example name, address or e-mail addresses) are collected on our pages, this is done on a voluntary basis as far as possible. These data are not passed on to third parties without your explicit consent.

We point out that data transmission on the internet (e.g. in the case of communication by e-mail) may present security gaps. Complete protection of the data from access by third parties is not possible.



Some of the web pages use so-called cookies. Cookies cause no damage to your computer and contain no viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer 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 the end of your visit. Other cookies remain saved on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser again on your next visit.

You can adjust your browser such that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, generally exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases, and activate automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed.
