Privacy policy

Personal data

Insofar as the entry of personal data is possible, such data will be treated confidentially and in accordance with the provisions of data protection law. Personal data will only be collected and used to the extent necessary for determining the content of or processing the respective contractual agreement. Users may request information regarding their personal data stored at any time. They may further require the deletion of such personal data stored insofar as the contractual agreement has been fully processed and the retention of data is not prescribed.

Non-personal data

Access data is stored in a log file on each occasion a page is accessed. This data is not personalised. It is, therefore, impossible for us to determine which user has accessed which data. The individual data stored each time a page is accessed is as follows:

  • name of the files accessed,
  • date and time of access,
  • amount of data transmitted,
  • access status (file transferred, file not found etc.),
  • page from which the file was requested,
  • description of the type of web browser used.

When you access a page, we receive data related to your use of the site. This data is stored for statistical purposes and may permit identification on the basis of the IP address. No personalised use is made of the data.

Liability for content

Although all due care and attention has been exercised in creating the contents of these pages, we are unable to provide any guarantee of correctness, current validity and completeness of content. In our capacity as a service provider, we are responsible for the content we ourselves have created for the site pursuant to § 7 Paragraph 1 of the German Telemedia Services Act (TMG) and in accordance with general legislation. Notwithstanding this, service providers are, pursuant to § 8 to 10 TMG, not under any obligation to monitor external information transmitted or stored nor under any obligation to research any facts and circumstances which may indicate unlawful activity. This is without prejudice to obligations to remove or block the use of information in accordance with general legislation. Notwithstanding this, any liability in this regard only applies from the time at which we become aware of a specific breach of the law. We will remove relevant content without delay as soon as we become aware of such a breach.

Liability for links

Our website contains links to websites operated by third parties. We are unable to exert any influence on the contents of such third party websites and for this reason are unable to provide any liability in respect of such external content. Responsibility for the contents of pages to which links are provided rests solely with the providers or operators of such pages. Pages to which links are provided were checked for possible violations of the law at the time when links were set. No illegal content was discernible at such a time. Notwithstanding this, permanent monitoring of pages to which links are provided is an unreasonable expectation in the absence of any specific indications of a legal infringement. We will remove relevant links without delay as soon as we become aware of such an infringement.


Contents and works created by the operators of the website and included on the present pages are subject to German Copyright Law. Reproduction, processing, dissemination and any kind of exploitation of material outside the scope of German Copyright Law are not permitted without the written agreement of the respective author or creator. Downloads and copies of this site are only permitted for private, non-commercial use. The copyright of third parties has been respected insofar as the contents contained on the site have not been created by the operator. Content created by third parties is in particular designated as such. Notwithstanding this, we would request that you notify us accordingly should you become aware of any breach of copyright. We will remove relevant content without delay as soon as we become aware of such a breach.

Data protection

Use of our website is generally possible without any requirement to state personal data. Insofar as personal data (such as names, addresses or e-mail addresses) is collected on this website, such collection of data takes place on a voluntary basis at all times wherever possible. Such data is not passed on to third parties without your express permission.

Your attention is drawn to the fact that the transmission of data on the Internet (such as communication via e-mail) may involve gaps in security. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

We hereby expressly exclude the third party use of contact data, which has been published in accordance with editorial requirements under law, for the transmission of advertising and information material not directly solicited. The operators of the present website further expressly reserve the right to initiate legal action in the event of unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as in the form of spam e-mails.
