4. Cookies

Our website sometimes uses so-called cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure.

The cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit.

In addition, in order to optimise user-friendliness, we also use temporary cookies that are stored on your end device for a certain fixed period of time. If you visit our site again, it is automatically recognised that you have already been with us and which entries and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter them again.

These are so-called “first-party cookies” for us, which are set by us as the responsible party.

On the other hand, we use “third-party cookies” in order to obtain statistics on the use of our website and to be able to optimise our offer. Please refer to section 5 for more information. These cookies are automatically deleted after a defined period of time.

Within the framework of a consent management (“cookie banner”), we offer you the possibility to decide on the setting of cookies in the area of our offer according to your specifications. You have the option at any time to change the decision made there and to subsequently grant or revoke your consent. For this purpose, you can access the setting options here.

5. Analysis tools

With the tracking measures used, we want to ensure a needs-based design and the ongoing optimisation of our website. On the other hand, we use the tracking measures to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimising our offer for you. This requires your consent, which we obtain by using the cookie banner.

The respective data processing purposes and data categories can be found in the corresponding tracking tools.

b) Google Analytics

For the purpose of demand-oriented design and continuous optimisation of our pages, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc ( (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter “Google”).

The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services associated with the use of the website and the Internet for the purposes of market research and the design of these Internet pages in line with requirements. This information may also be transferred to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on our behalf. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with other Google data. The IP addresses are anonymised so that an allocation is not possible (IP masking).

“Analytics cookies” are processed on the basis of Art. 6 (1) a) DSGVO, i.e. exclusively with your consent. Consent can be revoked at any time via the cookie consent management tool.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

7 YouTube

We have included videos on our website that are hosted on the YouTube platform, which belongs to Google Inc. This is based in San Bruno/California, USA.

We use the embedding of the YouTube function in the “no cookies” variant, i.e. we have activated extended data protection.

This is provided by YouTube itself and ensures that YouTube does not initially store any cookies on your device. However, when you access the relevant pages, the IP address and other information about your browser is transmitted. In particular, Google is informed which of our websites you have visited. However, this information cannot be assigned to you personally unless you are permanently logged in to YouTube or another Google service while accessing the page.

As soon as you start playing an embedded video by clicking on it, YouTube only stores cookies on your device through the extended data protection mode, which do not contain any personally identifiable data, unless you are currently logged in to a Google service. These cookies can be prevented by making the appropriate browser settings and extensions.

The cookies are used, among other things, to record video statistics, improve user-friendliness and prevent abusive behaviour.

Regardless of whether the embedded videos are played, a connection to the Google “DoubleClick” network is established each time this website is accessed, which may trigger further data processing operations without our influence.

Further information on data protection at Google can be found at,
Opt-out:, Privacy

The integration and transmission of data to YouTube/Google is based on your consent, which you can give in the upstream consent management system (CookieBot). You can revoke this consent at any time.

8 Google reCaptcha

To protect your enquiries in the form, we use the reCAPTCHA service of Google Inc (Google). This company is based in San Bruno/California, USA.
The query is used to distinguish whether the input is made by a human or abusively by automated, machine processing. The query includes sending the IP address and any other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google. For this purpose, your input is transmitted to Google and used there. However, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to analyse your use of this service. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of reCaptcha will not be merged with other Google data. The deviating data protection provisions of Google apply to this data. Further information on Google’s privacy policy can be found at:

The processing of reCaptcha is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR, i.e. exclusively with your consent. Consent can be revoked at any time via the cookie consent management tool.
