When visiting our website, the usual sent-by-the-browser data is stored in the log files of the server (date and time of request, requested URL, operating system, browser model). In addition, we use Piwik (an open-source analytics program) to see where our visitors come from, how long they stay, and which pages are more popular than others.

This data is used by us solely for statistical, non-commercial purposes. An assignment of the data to a particular person is not possible for us (and is not in our interest). The data is not linked with those from other sources and not passed on to third parties.

If visitors contact us via a web contact form, we will use the personal data provided solely for processing the request. We will not use it for any other purposes and will not pass it on to third parties.

Our website uses the Google Maps API for the representation of an interactive map. Thus, visitor information can be transfered to and saved by a Google server in the USA. Google may pass these information to third parties if it is prescribed by law or if the third party processes this data on behalf of Google.

For further information about data processing by Google, please see the Google Privacy Policy. At the Google Privacy Center, you can adjust the settings for managing and protecting your data.

The deactivation of JavaScript in the browser provides visitors an easy way to avoid data transfer to Google. However, in this case the map function can not be used anymore.

You may object to the use of your personal data, receive information about stored personal data or correct, block or delete the data stored by us at any time.


Piwik uses so-called cookies. A cookie is a text file that is sent when visiting our website and stored at the visitor’s browser. This serves to identify unique visits as such.

The information generated in this context will be stored on the provider's server in Germany and will not be disclosed to third parties. The visitor's IP address will be anonymized immediately after processing and prior to its storage.

The installation of cookies can be prevented by adjusting the browser software accordingly.
