We require cookies for some features of our website. Cookies are small files which your browser saves on your device in a designated directory. These cookies can be used, for example, to determine whether you have visited a website before. Most browsers accept cookies automatically. However, you can set your browser so that no cookies are stored or explicit consent is required before a cookie is saved. You can also delete already set cookies at any time.

Web analytics

We run the following third-party services, including web analytics tools and social plugins, on our website:

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, i.e. text files which are stored on your computer and facilitate the analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by such cookies regarding your use of this website is generally transmitted to a Google server in the US, where it is then stored. However, because IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google previously abbreviates your IP address within Member States of the European Union and in other states which are contracting parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is transmitted to servers in the US to be abbreviated there only in exceptional cases. Google uses this information on behalf of the operator of this website in order to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to perform other services for the website operator in connection with the use of the website and the Internet. The IP address transmitted from your browser in the context of the provision of these Google Analytics services is not merged with any other Google data. You can prevent the storing of cookies by adjusting the settings of your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that, in this case, you may not be able to use all of the functions of this website to their full extent. Furthermore, you can prevent the collection and transmission to Google of the data generated by cookies regarding your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing by Google of these data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available via the following link: dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de or by clicking on the following link. We will set an opt-out cookie that blocks the gathering of your data for future visits to this website:disable Google Analytics

More detailed information in this regard can be found at and at (general information on Google Analytics and data privacy).

Google Maps

This website uses plugins by Google Maps, which are operated by Google. If a user opens a web page containing such a plugin, their browser connects directly to Google’s servers. This gives Google information about the website visited by the user. If you are logged in with Google, Google will assign this information and other actions such as clicking, zooming or entering an address to your personal account. This can only be prevented by logging out prior to using the plugin. More information is available at Google’s privacy policy:

Information, revocation, deletion

Your are entitled to demand that we provide you with information about the data relating to you stored by us, and also to demand the deletion or blocking of those data. Should you have any questions regarding this privacy policy or if you wish to exercise your right to information or to the deletion or blocking of your data, please contact us at

Future changes

We reserve the right to amend this privacy policy at any time, respecting the statutory requirements.
