Data Privacy

We would like to inform you about the management of your personal data in accordance with Art. 13 General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The controller responsible for the described data collection and processing is named in the imprint.

Storage of Your IP address
We store the IP address transmitted by your web browser for a period of seven (7) days, strictly for the purpose of identifying, restricting and eliminating attacks on our website. After seven (7) days, we delete or anonymize your IP address. The legal basis for the processing of this personal data is provided for in Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Usage Data
When you visit our website, the data collected from the use of the website is temporarily stored on our web server for statistical purposes in order to improve the quality of our website. This data set contains:
* the page, from which the data is requested
* the name of the data file,
* the date and time of the query,
* the amount of data transferred,
* the access status (file transmitted, file not found),
* a description of the type of browser used,
* the IP address of the requesting computer shortened to such an extent that no re-identification of any personal data is possible.
The listed usage data is stored anonymously.

Data Transfer to Third Parties
We do not transfer your personal data to third parties.

Google Analytics
 To design our website to meet the needs of users, we create pseudonymous user profiles with the aid of Google Analytics. Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, which are text files stored on your computer that make it possible to analyse your 
use of the web site. The information generated by the cookie about your usage of this web site is transferred as a rule to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, since we have activated IP-anonymization, Google shortens your IP address
 shortly before this happens ( within the member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Community). Only in exceptions is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and only 
then shortened. Google will use this information to analyze your use of the website for us, in order to prepare reports on web site activities and to provide us with other services connected with web site and Internet usage.
You can object to the creation of the pseudonymous user profiles at any time. There are several options:
 1.) One option to object to the web analysis by Google Analytics is to set an opt-out cookie, which instructs Google not to store or use your data for the purpose of web analysis. Please note that, if you select this solution, the web analysis will not be done 
only as long as the opt-out cookie is stored by the browser. If you wish to set an opt-out cookie now, please click here.
 2.) You can also use an appropriate setting in your browser software to prevent the storage of cookies used to create profiles.
 3.) Depending on the browser you use, you have the option to install a browser plug-in that prevents tracking. To do so, please click here and install the browser plug-in that can be called up there.
 We also use Google Analytics to analyze ad words for statistical purposes. If you do not wish this, you can deactivate it via the ad setting manager (
