Scope of application

This Privacy Policy informs the user of this website according to the German Federal Data Protection Act and the German Telemedia Act about the nature, extent and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the operator of the website [Ihre Kontaktdaten einfügen] .

The operator of the website takes the data protection very seriously and treats your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the legal regulations.

Please note that, in principle, data transmission on the internet may be subject to security gaps. Complete protection from access by third parties is impossible.

  • Time of access
  • Amount of transmitted data in byte
  • Source/reference of your access to this site
  • Browser in use
  • Operating system in use
  • IP address in use

The data are merely collected for statistical evaluations and improvement of the website. The operator of the website, however, reserves the right to check the Server-Logfiles in case of concrete indications of illegal use.


This website uses Cookies. These are small text files which are stored on your terminal. Your browser has access to these data. The use of cookies increases the user-friendliness and safety of this website.

Processing of personal data

The operator of the website only collects, uses and forwards your personal data, if this is legally permitted or you have agreed to the collection of the data. Any information is considered as personal data that identify your person and which can be traced back to you – i.e. your name, your E-Mail address and telephone number. 

Handling contact data

If you contact the operator of the website by means of the available contact facilities, your information will be stored for the purpose of processing and responding to your inquiry. These data will not be forwarded to third parties without your consent.

Handling comments and contributions

If you leave a contribution or comment on this website, your IP address will be recorded. This serves as safety measure for the operator of the website: If your text violates the law, he wants to trace your identity.

External links

This website is also connected to third party websites ("external links"). These websites are subject to the liability of the respective operators. At the time of the first connection, the provider tested the contents of the external links for legal violations. At that time, legal violations were not evident. The provider has neither any influence on the present and future design nor on the contents of the linked pages. The setting of external links does not mean that the provider adopts the contents of the reference or link as his own. Constant supervision of the external links without any indication of violations of the law is not reasonable to the provider. External links, however, will be immediately deleted upon knowledge of violations of the law.
