Collection of personal data when you visit our website
If you use the website for informational purposes only, i.e. without registering or transferring any other information, we only collect the personal data that your browser sends to our server. If you wish to view our website, we collect the following data, which is technically necessary for us to display the website:
- IP address
- Date and time of the request
- Time zone difference from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
- Content of the request (specific page)

Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. These include session cookies in particular. The latter store what is referred to as a session ID, which allows various requests from your browser to be assigned to a common session.
Persistent cookies are deleted after a specified period of time, which may vary depending on the cookie. You can delete the cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time. You can configure your browser to notify you when cookies are set and only to allow individual cookies, to reject cookies in specific cases or in general and to delete cookies automatically when you close the browser.

Embedding of third-party services and content
Third party content, such as videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites may be embedded in this website. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as ‘Third-Party Providers’) are aware of users’ IP addresses. Without the IP address, they would not be able to send the content to the respective user’s browser. The IP address is therefore necessary to display this content. We make every effort to use content only from providers who use the IP address solely for the purpose of delivering that content. However, we have no influence on whether Third-Party Providers store the IP address for statistical purposes, for example. If we become aware of this, we will inform our users.
Use of social media plug-ins
We use the following social media plug-ins on this website:
We use the ‘two-click solution’. This means that when you visit our site, no personal data is initially transferred to the plug-in providers. You can recognise the provider of the plug-in by the marking on the box, its initial letter or its logo. In this way, we provide you with the opportunity to communicate directly with the plug-in provider via the button. Only if you click on the marked box and thereby activate it will the plug-in provider receive the information that you have accessed the corresponding page on our website. By activating the plug-in, your personal data is transferred to the plug-in provider in question and stored there. We have no influence on the data collected or on the data processing procedures, nor are we aware of the full extent of data collection, the purposes of processing or the storage periods. We also have no information about the deletion of the data collected by the plug-in provider. The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you as a user profile and uses it for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of its website. These evaluations are carried out in particular (including for users who are not logged in) for the purpose of displaying need-based advertising and to inform other users on the social network about your activities on our website. You are entitled to object to the creation of these user profiles. You must contact the plug-in provider in question in order to exercise this right. Via the plug-ins, we offer you the possibility to interact with social networks and other users so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of plug-ins is Article 6 (1) (1) (f), GDPR. Further information about the purposes and scope of data collection and its processing by plug-in providers can be found in the Privacy Policies of those providers as listed below. There you will also find further information on your rights in this regard and settings to protect your privacy.
