If you contact us using a contact form on our website or by e-mail, your data will be stored for six months or until revoked for the purpose of processing your inquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not disclose this information without your consent.
Our website uses so-called cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your mobile device using the browser. They do not cause any harm.

Adjust privacy settings
Our website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). Cookies are used for this purpose, which enable an analysis of the use of the website by its users. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
We would like to point out that the code "gat._anonymizeIp();" has been added to Google Analytics to ensure anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).
Your IP address is therefore only recorded by Google at our request in a shortened form, which guarantees anonymization and does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your identity. If IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address in the member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area will be truncated by Google first. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and be truncated there. Google also respects the privacy provisions of the U.S. Safe Harbor Agreement and is registered with the U.S. Department of Commerce's Safe Harbor Program. Google will use the information mentioned to evaluate your use of our website, to compile reports on website activities for us and to provide us with further services associated with the use of the website and the Internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not aggregated with other Google data. A transfer of this data by Google to third parties only takes place due to legal regulations or within the scope of order data processing. Under no circumstances will Google match your data with other data collected by Google.
By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google and the manner of data processing described above as well as the named purpose.

We use the "+1"-button of the provider Google+ of the company Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter "Google".

If you visit our site while logged in to Google, Google may collect information about your Google account, the site you refer, your IP address and other browser-related information when you click the "+1" button.

In addition, Google may link your visit to our site to your information stored on Google. Google also records this information in order to further improve Google's services.
