a) Processing of usage data


Every time the user accesses a page on and every time a file is retrieved, a service on the web server shall store data about this process in a log file. Storage shall be exclusively for system and statistical purposes. Data shall not be transmitted to or otherwise analysed by third parties. Log data shall be deleted after seven days, provided that there are no legal retention obligations to the contrary.

Specifically, the following data shall be stored for each retrieval:

·        the name of the retrieved file,

·        the date and time of the retrieval,

·        the amount of data transmitted,

·        notification of successful retrieval,

·        the web browser type,

·        the user’s operating system,

·        the search terms used, including date and time, and

·        the user’s IP address.

This data shall be deleted periodically. The user’s IP address shall only be stored in the log file in anonymised form. For this purpose, the last three digits of the IP address shall be replaced by a random value, making it impossible to associate it directly with a specific person and create personal user profiles.


The legal basis for the processing shall be Art. 6 (1) lit. f of the GDPR. It shall be necessary to store log data to enable both the delivery of the website to the user’s computer and communication with our server. This shall enable the website to function appropriately. In addition, we shall use the data in anonymised form to optimise the website and ensure the security of our information technology systems. In this context, the data shall not be analysed for marketing purposes. Log data shall be deleted after seven days, provided that there are no legal retention obligations to the contrary.

b) Processing of usage data by third-party providers

Third-party services are an integral part of our website. The integration of these services into the website requires that third-party providers also collect and process usage data. The extent to which third-party services are used and the personal data that shall be processed for this purpose is explained below, in this privacy Policy.


We use cookies in several places on our website. They serve exclusively to make our service more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer by your browser (such as Firefox, Internet Explorer and Chrome). A distinction is made between session cookies, which are deleted when you close your browser, and persistent cookies, which are retained even after you end your session or close your browser. Cookies may contain data that can be used to recognise the device used. In some cases, cookies only contain information about specific settings, which does not constitute personal data.

We use both session cookies and persistent cookies on our website. The processing shall be pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f of the GDPR and in the interest of optimising and/or enabling the user interface, and of customising the appearance of our website. You may set your browser to inform you every time a website requests to store a cookie. This will make the use of cookies transparent to you. In addition, you may apply the appropriate browser settings to delete cookies at any time and to prevent websites from storing new cookies. Please note that as a consequence our website may be displayed incorrectly and that some features may no longer be technically available.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter ‘Google’). Google Analytics uses ‘cookies’, text files that are stored on your computer and that enable analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie concerning your use of this website is generally transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the USA. However, since we have enabled IP anonymisation on this website, Google will first truncate your IP address if you are within a member state of the European Union or any other state that is a party to the European Economic Area Agreement. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and only there truncated. Google shall use this information to analyse your use of the website for us, to compile reports on website activity and to provide us with further services related to the use of the website and the Internet.

Your express consent is required for the use of Google Universal Analytics. For this purpose, when you first access our website you shall have the option to withhold or grant your consent by making your selection on the cookie banner and to familiarise yourself with our company’s data protection regulations. Should you grant us your consent, the legal basis for the processing of personal data shall be Art. 6 (1) lit. a of the GDPR.


To date, the European Commission has not yet made an adequacy decision with regard to the transfer of data to companies in the USA. However, Google is certified under the terms of the EU—U.S. Privacy Shield Framework ( Consequently, the company has committed to maintaining higher standards of data protection than those prevalent in the United States, which are intended to approach those prevailing in the European Union. In addition, Google has subscribed the latest version of the EU Standard Contractual Clauses. The transfer of your personal data to the USA shall therefore solely occur on the basis of your express consent in accordance with Art. 49 (1) lit. a of the GDPR.


You may withdraw your consent at any time by accessing the cookie settings and deselecting the ‘Statistics’ category.

In addition, you may object to the creation of pseudonymous profiles beforehand. There are a number of options for accomplishing this:

1.) One option is to object to web analytics by Google Analytics by setting an opt-out cookie, which instructs Google not to store or use your data for the purpose of web analytics. Please note: this option will only prevent web analytics from occurring as long as the opt-out cookie is stored by the browser. Please click here if you would like to set the opt-out cookie now.

2.) You may also prevent the storage of cookies used to create profiles by changing your browser software settings accordingly.

3.) Depending on the browser you use, you may install a browser plug-in that prevents tracking. Please click here to install the relevant browser plug-in.


If you would like to receive the newsletter promoted on the website, we shall require a valid email address from you. If you have granted your consent separately, the data shall be processed accordingly, pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a of the GDPR.
