When you contact us by email, we will save the information you share with us (your email address or any other data voluntarily provided by you) to answer your queries. We delete these data as soon as retention is no longer necessary, or we restrict processing, provided there are no statutory retention obligations.

We may commission other service providers for specific functions of our website or use your data for marketing purposes. In these cases, we shall provide you with detailed information on our processes below. We shall also outline the agreed criteria for data retention.

With the help of "Visitors", the data specified in § 3 is used in pseudonymized form for statistical evaluations of visits to our website. The data is not aggregated or used for profiling and is used solely for the purpose of determining how often our website was accessed by how many visitors.

The pseudonymized IP address is stored for 30 minutes to recognize different visitors and then automatically deleted. Referrer values are deleted after 90 or 120 days, depending on the type.


Article 5. Use of cookies

Our website uses only the following technically necessary cookie:

Purpose: Session Cookie Session Maintenance
Data: Session ID
Session ID: Session Cookie
Storage period: Automatic deletion at the end of the browser session

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file that is stored on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies help a website to remember information such as specific actions and settings (username, language, font size and other display parameters) for a certain length of time so that the user will not have to re-enter this information every time they visit the website or switch from one page to another. Other third-party cookies can also be used to track you if they are found on other websites which use such third-party services.

How to check your cookies

You can check and/or delete cookies at your discretion. For further information, see You can delete any cookies already stored on your computer, and most browsers can be configured to block cookies.

Article 6. Objection or withdrawal of consent to processing

If you have given consent to the processing of your data, you can withdraw it at any time. This withdrawal affects the permissibility of processing your personal data after you have expressed it to us.

Insofar as we take the processing of your personal data as the basis for the balancing of interests, you may object to the processing. This shall be the case in particular if the processing is not required to fulfil a contract with you, which we shall describe in the functions below. When you exercise your right to withdrawal, we shall ask you to provide us with reasons why we should not process your personal data. In the event of your legitimate objection, we shall examine the situation and either suspend or adapt the processing of your data, or we shall share with you our legitimate compelling reasons on the basis of which we will continue the processing.

You may, of course, object to the processing of your personal data for advertising and analysis purposes at any time. You can contact us to let us know of your intention to withdraw consent using the following email address:
