  • Success message of the access
  • Description of the used browser type
  • Requesting domain. 

Additional personal data such as your name, address, telephone number or email address are not collected, except if you give these date voluntarily, for example within the framework of a registration desired by you, a survey, a contest, for the realization of a contract or an information request.
Also here, your data is treated confidentially and is not forwarded to third parties. The users have the right to receive, free of charge, information about the personal data stored about them. Furthermore, according to legal provisions, you are entitled to ask for this personal data to be corrected, blocked or deleted.

We analyse your data exclusively in anonymous form for statistical purposes to which you have given your consent. You declare your consent by sending data to us which you have entered voluntarily before in a window on our website. This happens for example when you receive information material, want to make an appointment or send us an email. We will not sell your data to third parties. We will give public authorities access to your data only if this is required by law. Our employees as well as third parties we require within the framework of order processing are obliged by us to respect confidentiality.

When leaving or entering foreign websites, it is possible that so called cookies are placed by addresses of the target site.

We are not legally responsible for the placing of cookies. Please compare for the usage of such cookies and the information stored on it the data protection declarations of the corresponding websites.

Unencrypted emails
We ask you to note that when sending a non-encrypted e-mail to or, it is impossible to guarantee that the information has not fallen into the hands of unauthorized individuals or been tampered with during transmission.

Internet conditions
The internet works as decentralized network alliance with the intermediate storage and passing on of temporary data.
A guarantee for the exclusion of manipulation, of the inadvertent falsification and any guarantee for the use of only the most actual data (i.e. the old version is still in the cache) on the connecting path from provider to user is therefore at this time not possible.
Therefore, we point out the system-related limitations as follows: You receive this data under the standard internet conditions. No guarantee can be assumed for the accuracy of the data or conformity with the original data.

Usage of data with your consent

Changes of notes
We reserve the right to change these notes on data security at all times. Changes will be published here. In this way, you can inform yourself at any time about how we protect your data. The data protection declaration is valid at the moment and dates August 06th 2008.
