This information is technically necessary in order to correctly supply the content of web-sites requested by you and are an absolute necessity for the use of the internet. Such anonymous information is evaluated by us for statistical purposes in order to optimise our internet presence and the underlying technology.

Erasure and blocking of data

We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We only store personal data for as long as is necessary for the achievement of purposes given here or as stipulated by the various storage periods provided for by the legislature. After the discontinuance of the purpose in question or the expiry of these periods the appropriate data are blocked or erased on a routine basis and in accordance with the statutory regulations.

Use of script libraries (Google webfonts)

In order to display our content in a correct and graphically appealing manner on all web browsers, we make use of script and font libraries on this website such as Google webfonts ( Google webfonts are transferred in order to avoid multiple downloading into the cache of your browser. Should the browser not support Google webfonts or prevent access, content will be displayed in a standard font.

The calling up of script or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the operator of the library. During this process, it is theoretically possible – although it is also currently unclear whether this is so and for what possible reason – that operators of appropriate libraries collect data.

The data protection guideline of the library operator, Google, may be found here:

Use of Google Maps

This website makes use of Google Maps API in order to visually display geographical information. During the use of Google Maps, data on the usage of map functions by users are also collected, processed and made use of by Google. More detailed information on the data processing carried out by Google may be found in the Google data protection instructions. You can also amend your personal data protection settings there in the Data Protection Center.

Detailed instructions on the management of your own data in conjunction with Google products may be found here.

Embedded YouTube videos

We embed Youtube videos on some of our web pages. The operator of the appropriate plug-in is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. If you visit a page with the YouTube plug-in, a connection to servers of Youtube is generated. As a result, YouTube server is given the information on what pages you visit. If you are logged onto your YouTube account, YouTube can match your surfing behaviour directly to you personally. You can prevent this if you log out of your Youtube account beforehand

Once a Youtube video is started, the provider places cookies which gather information about user behaviour.

If the saving of cookies for the Google-Ad program has been deactivated, it may be assumed that no such cookies are generated when viewing Youtube videos. However, Youtube also stores non-personalised usage information in other cookies. If you wish to prevent this, you must block the saving of cookies in your browser.
