Data collection on this website

As the operator of this website, the protection of your personal data is a high priority for us. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations. With the following information on data protection, we would like to provide you with comprehensive information on the handling of your data.

When you use this website, various personal data is collected. Personal data is data that can be used to identify you personally. This privacy policy explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done.

We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) may be subject to security vulnerabilities. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Who is responsible for data collection?
Data is collected by the website operator. Their contact details are listed above and in the legal notice.

How do we collect your data?
On the one hand, your data is collected when you provide it to us. This is the case, for example, when you send us an e-mail or fill in and send the contact form. Other data is collected automatically by our IT systems when you visit the website. This is primarily technical data (e.g. type of browser and operating system used or time the page was accessed). Such data is collected automatically as soon as you enter our website.

What is the data used for?
Some of the data is collected to ensure that the website and its content are provided without errors. Other data may be used to analyse your user behaviour.

What rights do you have regarding your data?
You have the right to receive information about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored data free of charge at any time. You also have the right to request the correction, blocking or deletion of this data. You can contact us at any time regarding this and other questions on the subject of data protection. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority.

SSL encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as enquiries you send to us, this site uses SSL encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the lock symbol in your browser line and by the fact that the address line of your browser changes from “http://” to “https://”. If SSL encryption is activated, data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Analysis tools and tools from third-party providers
When you visit this website, your surfing behaviour may be statistically analysed. This is primarily done using cookies and so-called analysis programmes. The analysis of your surfing behaviour is usually anonymous; the surfing behaviour cannot be traced back to you. You can object to this analysis or prevent it by not using certain tools. You will find more information on this below.

Cookies – the choice is yours
We use cookies to optimise the design of this website for you. When you visit our website, a cookie banner gives you the option of agreeing to the use of cookies or rejecting them.

Cookies are used to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called session cookies. They are automatically deleted after you leave our website. Other cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.

Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions that you have requested are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically flawless and optimised provision of its services. Insofar as other cookies (e.g. for analysing your surfing behaviour) are stored, these are treated separately in this privacy policy.

Server log files
The operator of this website or our web space provider Ionos automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
    referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

This data is not merged with other data sources.

Making contact on this website
If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact details you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing your enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. By sending the form, you explicitly consent to the forwarding of this data for the purpose of answering or further processing.

The data entered in the contact form is therefore processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal email. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer pertains (e.g. after fulfilling your request).

Contacting us by e-mail or telephone

If you contact us by email or telephone, your enquiry including all resulting personal data (e.g. name, enquiry, contact details) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request and, if necessary, forwarded to the relevant department for further processing. The processing of this data is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the enquiries addressed to us (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR) if this has been requested; consent can be revoked at any time. The data you send to us via contact requests will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed).

Plugins and embedding content from other providers

Google Fonts (local hosting)
This website uses so-called Google Fonts, which are provided by Google, for the standardised display of fonts. Google Fonts are installed locally. There is no connection to Google. Further information on Google Fonts can be found at and in Google’s privacy policy at

Video content
On our website, we embed a video from the provider YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, represented by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Normally, when you access a page with embedded videos, your IP address is sent to YouTube and cookies are installed on your computer. However, we have embedded our YouTube videos with the extended data protection mode (in this case, YouTube still contacts Google’s Double Click service, but according to Google’s privacy policy, personal data is not analysed). This means that YouTube no longer stores any information about visitors unless they watch the video. If you click on the video, your IP address is transmitted to YouTube and YouTube learns that you have watched the video. If you are logged in to YouTube, this information will also be assigned to your user account (you can prevent this by logging out of YouTube before watching the video).

We have no knowledge of and no influence on the possible collection and use of your data by YouTube. Further information can be found in YouTube’s privacy policy at We also refer you to our general presentation in this privacy policy for the general handling and deactivation of cookies.

We also include a video from the ARD media centre on this website. If you call up the page with the corresponding content, play the videos and switch to the providers’ platforms by clicking on them, personal data may be passed on. You can find ARD’s privacy policy at

Google Maps
This website uses an online map service from the following provider: Google Maps from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

Google Maps is a web service for displaying interactive (land) maps. We use it to visualise geographical information and thus improve the user experience of this website.

As soon as you access the pages in which the Google Maps map is integrated, usage data from our website (such as your IP address) is transmitted to Google servers and stored there; this may also involve transmission to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA. This occurs regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether a user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not wish your data to be associated with your Google profile, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and analyses them. For more information about which data Google uses and processes and how, please refer to Google’s privacy policy at For more information, please refer to YouTube’s privacy policy at Zudem for the general handling and deactivation of cookies, please refer to our general presentation in this privacy policy

Sharing Buttons
As part of a social media challenge, we use so-called sharing buttons on this website. These enable users to share content from this website directly on their own social media profiles and channels and thus draw their contacts’ attention to interesting content. This function therefore makes it easier to distribute content in public and private networks – exactly what a social media challenge is designed to achieve. It is obvious that in addition to the shared content, user data is also passed on to the relevant networks. We use the Shariff plugin to embed the social media buttons. In contrast to other plugins, it only establishes direct contact between the social networks (specifically: Facebook, Twitter or X, Linkedin, XING and Whatsapp) and the user’s email programme as soon as they actively click on the corresponding share button. Further information about the functionality and data protection of this service can be found here:

Rank Math 

This website uses the Rank Math plugin for search engine optimisation (SEO). The provider of this service is Rank Math Ventures LLP (EC-320, G-8, Area Rajouri Garden, Maya Enclave, Hari Nagar, New Delhi, IN – 110064). The use of the plugin serves to optimise the website so that it appears as high up as possible in the search engine results lists and is thus found more easily and quickly. Rank Maths does not set any cookies and does not store any personal data. Information on data protection and data storage can be found at or
