Scope and purpose of personal data processing when accessing this website
When our website is accessed via the visitor’s web browser, data is automatically sent to our website’s servers and saved in a log file for a set period of time. The following data is saved until it is automatically erased, without the visitor providing any information:

We use ‘cookies’ on our website. These are data packages that are exchanged between this website’s server and the visitor’s browser. These are saved by the device used (PC, notebook, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when this website is visited. Cookies are not harmful to the devices used. In particular, cookies do not contain any viruses or other malware. Cookies store information that is generated based on the specific end device used. The company is therefore unable to directly determine the identity of the visitor to this website.
Cookies are generally accepted based on browser default settings. Browser settings can be changed so that cookies are either not accepted on the devices used or so a special notice appears before a new cookie is saved. However, please note that disabling cookies may result in you not being able to use all of this website’s features to their full extent.
Cookies are used to make the use of the company’s website more convenient. As an example, session cookies can be used to track whether the visitor has already visited individual pages on this website. These session cookies are automatically deleted when you leave the website.
Temporary cookies are used to improve user friendliness. They are saved on the visitor’s device on a temporary basis. When this website is visited again, the fact that the visitor has previously accessed the pages is automatically recognised, and previous input and settings are also recognised so that the input or settings do not have to be repeated.
Cookies are also used to analyse website requests for statistical purposes and for the purposes of improving the website. These cookies allow us to automatically recognise that visitors have previously visited the website when they visit again. Cookies are automatically deleted after a set period of time.
Analysis services for websites, tracking
On our site, we use the website analysis service for websites from:
Google Search Console
Google Search Console is a free service from Google that monitors and manages your web presence in the search index. Google provides information about this website to optimize it for search engines.
We create pseudonym user profiles using Google Analytics for the needs-based design of our website. Google Analytics uses ‘cookies’, i.e. text files that are saved on your computer that allow the use of this website to be analysed. Information generated by the cookie about the use of our website is generally sent to a Google server in the USA and saved there. As we have enabled IP anonymisation, IP addresses are truncated by Google within the European Union Member States or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being sent. A full IP address is only sent to a Google server in the USA and truncated there in exceptional cases. Google will use this information to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports about website activities, and to provide us with other services that relate to website and internet use. We use Google Analytics to evaluate clicks from Google AdWords purely for statistical purposes. You can find information about how Google uses data at:
https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de and at
The legal basis for using analysis tools is point (f) of sentence 1 of Article 6(1) of the GDPR. Website analysis is based on our company’s legitimate interests and is used for statistically recording website use for the ongoing improvement of both our website and our range of services.
Using Google Maps
Our website uses the Google Maps API. By using Google Maps, information about your use of this website (including your IP address) may be sent to a Google (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California, 94043) server in the USA and saved there.
Google will send the information obtained via Maps to third parties if this is legally permissible or if third parties process this data by order of Google. The IP address is never merged with other Google data.
We must also note that it would be possible from a technical point of view for Google to be able to identify individual users based on the data received.
The use of Google Maps is a service to you for you to be able to determine exactly where we are and possibly also for you to better plan your visit to us. We use Google Maps on the basis of our legitimate interests, pursuant to point (f) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR.
