We are currently updating our Privacy Policy. Please see the German version for latest information: We apologize for any inconvenience.

Dear customer,
to ensure that you feel safe and secure while visiting our web pages, we would like to inform you subsequently about how we handle your data.

User data
In order to improve the quality of our website, we store data concerning each access on our website for statistical purposes. This data record consists of

  • the page from which the file was 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),
  • the description of the type of browser used,
  • the IP address of the requesting computer shortened by the last three digits.

These data are stored in an anonymized form in accordance with the German Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz, TMG). Thus, no personal user profiles can be created.

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

Cookies are small pieces of data sent from a website and stored in a user´s web browser while the user is browsing the website. With the help of cookies you can store information for a certain period of time and identify the device of the user. For a better user guidance and an individual representation of performance we use permanent cookies. We also use so-called session cookies which are automatically deleted once you close your browser. You can set your browser to inform you of the potential downloading of cookies, thus ensuring that the use of the cookies is transparent.

We create pseudonymous user profiles by the help of the web analysis service Google Analytics in order to design our website to meet customer requirements. You may object to such use of your personal data at any time. Just click here to install a browser plugin that will help you to do so.

More information: This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies” which are text files that are stored on your computer to enable an analysis of how you use our site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website are generally sent to a Google Inc. server in the U.S. and stored there. Since we have enabled IP-anonymisation on this website, your IP address, however, will first be shortened by Google if the IP address is within a Member State of the European Union or another party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the U.S. and shortened there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities, and to provide other linked services connected to the
website activity and Internet use. The IP address communicated within the framework of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data held by Google. You may reject the use of cookies via the appropriate setting on your browser; we point out, however, that if you do so, you may not be able to use all the features of this site fully. You can also prevent Google from collecting the site-usage data generated via the cookie (including your IP address) and from processing the data by downloading and installing a browser plugin available here or click here to opt-out of Google Analytics.
