Privacy Policy


Data Privacy

This website can generally be used without disclosure of personal data. The collection of personal data (such as names, street addresses or e-mail addresses) in these web pages is always on a voluntary basis whenever possible. This data is not passed on to third parties without your explicit consent. We draw your attention to the fact that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) may involve gaps in security. It is not possible to protect such data completely against access by third parties. We hereby explicitly prohibit the use of the contact information published within our imprint for the purpose of sending us any advertising or informational materials which have not been explicitly requested.


We use cookies to track your preferences and to optimise our website for you, and to tailor the contents of our website to your specific needs, thus improving the services we offer you. Cookies are small files that are temporarily stored in your computer. Cookies enable us to identify your computer; they do not enable us to establish a reference link to your particular person.

By using our Website, you consent to the usage and storage of Cookies on your computer. If you do not wish us to identify your computer, please configure your browser to erase all cookies from your hard drive, to block them or to warn you before storing a cookie. For more information about how that works, please refer to the instructions of your browser.  Please note that not accepting Cookies can restrict functions of this website and our services.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, this website is using Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()” which means that IP-addresses are processed only in a shortened manner to prevent a direct personal reference. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators, and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. By using this website, you consent to Google processing your data in the manner and for the purposes set out above. You can prevent the installation of the Google cookies and thereby the obtaining and processing of the use data by downloading and installing this browser-plugin: 

Contact Request

On our website we give you the opportunity to contact us via e-mail and/or a contact form. In this case, the information provided by the user will be stored for the purpose of processing the request. No third-parties will have access to this information. The comparison of the data collected, with the data which could be collected through other components of this website, will not take place either.

You can revoke your consent at any time, becoming effective for the future. In this case, we will delete your data immediately.

Social Plugins

This Website uses Social Plugins (“plugins”) from different social networks (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, XING). To increase your data security when visiting our website, the plugins are restricted by implementing an html link (the “ShariffLösung” by c’t). This ensures that the connection to the social network provider is not established when simply visiting a page that contains these plugins. It is only when you click one of the buttons, that a new browser window opens with the webpage of the respective provider, where you can confirm your action (possibly after giving your login details). See the purpose and extent of the data collection and further processing and use of the data by the provider on their respective page and the involved rights and settings for your data security in the privacy policy of the social network providers:

We embed Videos from the platform “YouTube”, provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Data Privacy:, Opt-Out:

We use the Plugin WP YouTube Lyte, which replaces the Videos with a preview image and only starts loading the player after the video has been clicked on.
