These are small files that your browser automatically creates and that are stored on your terminal device (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when you visit our site. A cookie does not mean that we can identify you in every case.
The use of cookies serves on the one hand to log the frequency of use, number of users and behavior on our website, to increase the security of website use and to design our information offering in a user-friendly way. As soon as you leave the website, these cookies are automatically deleted.

6. analysis tools

Google Analytics
Our website uses the web analysis service Google Analytics from Google Inc, USA. Google Analytics uses cookies (see under Cookies).
These enable an analysis of the use of our website offer incl. IP addresses by Google in the USA. We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code "gat._anonymizeIp();" to ensure anonymized collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). If anonymization is active, Google truncates IP addresses within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, which is why no conclusions can be drawn about your identity. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google uses the information collected to evaluate the use of our websites for us, to compile reports for us in this regard and to provide other related services to us. You can find out more at, in particular also regarding the possibility of deactivating Google Analytics at
The legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a and f DSGVO.

7. social media plug-in

We use the social plug-ins below on our website in order to make our company better known via them. The underlying promotional purpose is to be regarded as a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The responsibility for data protection-compliant operation is to be ensured by their respective providers. Data processing in connection with these plug-ins takes place with your consent when you use them.
If you use the services of these social networks independently of or in connection with our website, the social networks evaluate your use of the plug-in.
In this case, information about the plug-in is forwarded to the social networks.
Embedding Youtube videos
We implement on our Internet pages (videos) of the video portal "YouTube" of the company Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (hereinafter: "Google"). The implementation is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO, whereby our interest lies in the smooth integration of the videos and the thus appealing design of our website.
Here we use the option of the extended data protection mode provided by Google. When you visit a page that has an embedded video, a connection to Google's servers is established and the content is displayed on the website by informing your browser.
According to Google's information, in extended data protection mode your data - in particular which of our Internet pages you have visited as well as device-specific information including the IP address - is only transmitted to the YouTube server in the USA when you watch the video. By clicking on the video, you consent to this transmission.
If you are logged in to Google at the same time, this information will be assigned to your YouTube member account. You can prevent this by logging out of your member account before visiting our website.
In some cases, information is transmitted to the parent company Google Inc. based in the USA, to other Google companies and to external partners of Google, each of which may be located outside the European Union. Google uses standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission for this purpose and relies on the adequacy decisions issued by the European Commission regarding certain countries.

Google Maps services are used on our website (e.g. in-screen or via interfaces/API). Google LLC, USA, may therefore process information about your actual location.
