This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content that you send to us as the site operator.

§7 Processing of data from your terminal devices (use of cookies)
(1) In addition to the data mentioned above, we use technical aids for various functions when you use our website, in particular cookies, which can be stored on your end device. When you visit our website and at any time thereafter, you can choose whether you want to generally allow the setting of cookies or which individual additional functions you want to select. You can make changes in your browser settings.

(2) Cookies are text files or information in a database that are stored on your hard drive and assigned to the browser you are using, so that certain information can flow to the place that sets the cookie. Cookies cannot run programs or transmit viruses to your computer, but primarily serve to make the internet offer faster and more user-friendly. This website uses the following types of cookies, whose functionality and legal basis we will explain below:

Transient cookies: Such cookies, in particular session cookies, are automatically deleted when the browser is closed or when you log out. They contain a so-called session ID. In this way, various requests from your browser can be assigned to the joint session and your computer can be recognized when you return to our website.
Persistent cookies: These are automatically deleted after a specified period, which varies depending on the cookie. You can view the cookies that have been set and their runtimes at any time in your browser settings and delete the cookies manually.

(3) Mandatory functions that are technically necessary to display the website: The technical structure of the website requires that we use technologies, in particular cookies. Without these techniques, our website cannot be displayed (fully correctly) or the support functions could not be enabled. These are basically transient cookies that are deleted at the end of your visit to the website, at the latest when you close your browser. You cannot opt out of these cookies if you wish to use our website. The legal basis for this processing is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Clause 1 Letter f GDPR.

§8 Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts) – Local hosting 
This site uses so-called web fonts for the uniform display of fonts. The Google Fonts are installed locally. There is no connection to Google servers.
You can find more information about Google Web Fonts here:

§9 External links
(1) Our online offer contains links to websites of other providers – so-called external links. The content of the destinations of these external links is beyond our control, so that we cannot assume any liability for such content. The responsibility always lies with the respective operator of the external sites. At the time the external links were linked, no legal violations were apparent. We cannot reasonably be expected to constantly monitor third-party content for violations of the law without specific information and evidence. If we become aware of any legal infringements, we will remove the corresponding external links immediately.
(2) We also point out that these websites have their own privacy policies. Please review this privacy policy before you voluntarily provide any personal information to these websites. Only when you click on an external link will data be transferred to the link target. This is technically necessary due to the protocol on which the Internet is based (TCP – Transfer Control Protocol). Individual links can mean a data transfer to non-European countries. As a result, it may be possible for foreign third parties, authorities or secret services to receive connection data. If you do not want data about the link destination or the third parties mentioned to be transmitted or accessed by others, do not click on the link.

§10 Objection to promotional mails
We hereby object to the use of contact data published as part of the imprint obligation to send unsolicited advertising and information material. The site operators expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited advertising being sent, such as spam e-mails.

§11 Change to our privacy policy
We reserve the right to occasionally adapt this data protection declaration so that it always corresponds to the current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services. The new data protection declaration will then apply to your next visit.
