Collection of general information when you visit our website
When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically recorded by means of a cookie. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and the like. This is exclusively information that does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person. These files are automatically deleted after 14 days.
This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the website content you have requested and is mandatory when using the Internet. In particular, they are processed for the following purposes:

The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest from the aforementioned data collection purposes. We do not use your data to draw conclusions about you personally. The recipients of the data are only the responsible body and, if necessary, the processor.
Anonymous information of this kind may be statistically evaluated by us in order to optimize our website and the technology behind it.
Like many other websites, we also use so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files that are transferred to your hard drive by a website server. This automatically gives us certain data such as B. IP address, browser used, operating system and your connection to the Internet.
Cookies cannot be used to start programs or transfer viruses to a computer. Based on the information contained in cookies, we can make navigation easier for you and enable our website to be displayed correctly.
In no case will the data collected by us be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.

Use of Matomo
This website uses Matomo (formerly Piwik), an open source software for the statistical analysis of visitor access. Matomo uses so-called cookies, i.e. text files that are stored on your computer and that enable your use of the website to be analyzed.
The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website is stored on a server in Germany.
The IP address is anonymized immediately after processing and before it is saved. You have the option of preventing the installation of cookies by changing the setting in your browser software. We would like to point out that with the appropriate setting, not all functions of this website may be available.
Use of Adobe Typekit
We use Adobe Typekit for the visual design of our website. Typekit is a service provided by Adobe Systems Software Ireland Ltd. which gives us access to a font library. To integrate the fonts we use, your browser must connect to an Adobe server in the USA and download the font required for our website. This informs Adobe that our website has been accessed from your IP address. Further information on Adobe Typekit can be found in Adobe's data protection information, which you can access here:
Social plugins from the providers listed below are used on our website. You can recognize the plugins by the fact that they are marked with the corresponding logo.
Via these plugins, information, which may also include personal data, may be sent to the service operator and may be used by the operator. We prevent the unconscious and unwanted collection and transmission of data to the service provider with a 2-click solution. In order to activate a desired social plug-in, it must first be activated by clicking on the corresponding switch. Only when the plug-in is activated is the collection of information and its transmission to the service provider triggered. We do not collect any personal data ourselves using the social plugins or their use.
We have no influence on which data an activated plug-in collects and how it is used by the provider. It must currently be assumed that a direct connection to the provider's services will be established and that at least the IP address and device-related information will be recorded and used. There is also the possibility that the service provider will try to save cookies on the computer used. Please refer to the data protection information of the respective service provider to find out which specific data is recorded and how it is used. Note: If you are logged into Facebook at the same time, Facebook can identify you as a visitor to a specific page.
Use of Facebook social plugins
The website uses social plugins ("plugins") from the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). The plugins can be recognized by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on a blue tile or a “thumbs up” sign) or are marked with the addition “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list and the appearance of the Facebook social plugins can be viewed here:
If you call up a website on our website that contains such a plugin and you have activated the social media plugins with the switch, your browser will establish a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plug-in is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser, which integrates it into the website. We therefore have no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects with the help of this plug-in and therefore inform you according to our level of knowledge: by integrating the plug-in, Facebook receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example when the "Like" button is clicked or comments are made, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook and saved there. If you are not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will find out your IP address and save it. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your related rights and setting options to protect your privacy can be found in Facebook's data protection information:
If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to collect data about you via our website and link it to your member data stored on Facebook, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website. It is also possible to block Facebook social plugins with add-ons for your browser, for example with the “Facebook Blocker”.
Use of Google Maps
This website uses Google Maps API to visually display geographic information. When using Google Maps, Google also collects, processes and uses data about the use of the map functions by visitors.
