Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, i.e. text files that are stored on your computer and enable your website use to be analysed. As a rule, the information generated by the cookie about your website use is transferred to and stored on a Google server in the U.S.


If IP anonymisation is activated on this website, however, your IP address is shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the U.S. and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your website use, compiling website activity reports and providing further services relating to website and Internet use to the website operator. The IP address transferred from your browser via Google Analytics will not be associated with any other data held by Google.


You can prevent the installation of cookies by selecting the appropriate setting in your browser software; however, you should be aware that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.

This website uses Userlike, a live chat software of the company Userlike UG (haftungsbeschränkt). Userlike uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to provide a personal conversation in the form of a real-time chat on the website with you.

The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their further data described in the context of these notes, are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. Furthermore, MailChimp can use this data according to its own information to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. to technically optimize the sending and presentation of newsletters or for economic purposes, in order to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write them down or pass them on to third parties.


We trust in the reliability and IT and data security of MailChimp. MailChimp is certified under the US-EU data protection agreement Privacy Shield and thus commits itself to comply with EU data protection regulations. Furthermore, we have concluded a data processing agreement with MailChimp. This is a contract in which MailChimp undertakes to protect the data of our users, to process them on our behalf in accordance with their data protection regulations and in particular not to pass them on to third parties.
