B. Concrete Data Processing

1. Data collection when visiting the website

In general you can use our website without the disclosure of your identity. By accessing our website there will be data saved on our servers, like the name of your internet service provider, your IP address, the used browser type, the used operating system, the referrer URL (the website visited before) and the time designations of your visit.

Scope of data processing

When visiting our website, the following data is collected and stored by our web server:

  • IP address
  • Date and time of request
  • Time zone difference from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
  • Content of request (concrete page)
  • Access status/HTTP status code
  • Data volume transmitted in each case
  • Website making the request
  • Browser
  • Operating system and its interface
  • Language and version of the browser software.

The data is stored in the log files of our system. A storage of this data together with other personal data of the user does not take place.

Legal basis

The legal basis for processing the data is Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR.

The legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR therefore lies in the functionality of our website and its availability.

Purpose of data processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to allow delivery of the website to the computer of the user. To do this, the user’s IP address must be kept for the duration of the session.

The data is stored in order to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data is used to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.

Duration of storage

The logfiles will be deleted after 30 days at the latest, unless there is a need to keep the data for the aforementioned purpose due to specific events.

Storage beyond that is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment to a specific user is no longer possible.

Objection and removal possibility

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is essential for the operation of the website. There is consequently no possibility of objection by the user.

2. E-Mail contact / contact form

Scope of data processing

Should you send us questions via e-mail or the contact form, we will collect the data entered on the form, including the contact details you provide, to answer your question and any follow-up questions. We do not share this information without your permission.

Legal basis

The legal basis for processing data is our legitimate interest in responding to your request in accordance with Art. 6 (1) f GDPR. If your contact is aimed at concluding a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) b GDPR.

Purpose of data processing

These data are stored and used exclusively for the purpose of responding to your request or for establishing contact and for the associated technical administration.

Duration of storage

Your data will be deleted after final processing of your enquiry; this is the case if it can be inferred from the circumstances that the facts in question have been finally clarified, provided that there are no legal storage obligations to the contrary.

Objection and removal possibility

You may revoke your consent at any time. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.

3. Newsletter

Scope of data processing

At your explicit request, we will send you our newsletter on the topics you have chosen as well as information about our company. The input mask used for this purpose determines what personal data are transmitted.

 Please note that delivery can only take place once you have expressly confirmed your subscription request again in the course of our double opt-in process.
Legal basis

The legal basis for processing the data is Art. 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR.

Purpose of data processing

Collection of the email address of the user is done to deliver the newsletter. The personal data collected within the scope of the newsletter registration will be used exclusively for sending and personalising the newsletter (e.g. to address you by your name).

Duration of storage

Data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to fulfill the purpose of its collection. The email address of the user is therefore stored for as long as the newsletter subscription is active.

Objection and removal possibility

You can revoke your consent to the storage of personal data that you have given us for sending the newsletter at any time with effect for the future. For the purpose of revoking your consent, each newsletter contains an appropriate link; alternatively, you are welcome to contact us directly so that we can implement your revocation.

4. Social Media / OpenStreetMap

a) Social Media Buttons

Our website uses social media buttons (Twitter, LinkedIn) to enable you to interact with third parties.

These social media buttons are not integrated as plug-ins via a so-called iFrame, but are stored as links. By clicking the social media buttons you will be redirected to the page of the respective provider. The relevant provider is then responsible for compliance with the data protection regulations and for the correctness, up-to-dateness and completeness of the information provided there for data processing within the meaning of Art. 4 No. 17 GDPR.

b) youtube

On this website, the controller has integrated components of YouTube. YouTube is an Internet video portal that enables video publishers to set video clips and other users free of charge, which also provides free viewing, review and commenting on them. YouTube allows you to publish all kinds of videos, so you can access both full movies and TV broadcasts, as well as music videos, trailers, and videos made by users via the Internet portal.

The operating company of YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, UNITED STATES. The YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, UNITED STATES.

With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to download a display of the corresponding YouTube component. Further information about YouTube may be obtained under During the course of this technical procedure, YouTube and Google gain knowledge of what specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged in on YouTube, YouTube recognizes with each call-up to a sub-page that contains a YouTube video, which specific sub-page of our Internet site was visited by the data subject. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the data subject.

YouTube and Google will receive information through the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website, if the data subject at the time of the call to our website is logged in on YouTube; this occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on a YouTube video or not. If such a transmission of this information to YouTube and Google is not desirable for the data subject, the delivery may be prevented if the data subject logs off from their own YouTube account before a call-up to our website is made.

YouTube’s data protection provisions, available at, provide information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.

c) OpenStreetMap

We integrate the maps of the service “OpenStreetMap” (, which are offered by the OpenStreetMap Foundation (OSMF) based on the Open Data Commons Open Database License (ODbL).

Privacy Policy:

To the best of our knowledge, OpenStreetMap uses users’ data solely for the purpose of displaying map features and caching the selected settings. This data may include, but is not limited to, users’ IP addresses and location data, but they are not collected without their consent (usually as part of their mobile device settings). The data can be processed in the USA.
