List of cookies used
We use Webflow, a website construction system, for our website. The service provider is the American company Webflow, Inc. 398 11th St., Floor 2, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.
As a basis for data processing with recipients located in third countries (outside the European Union, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, i.e. especially in the USA) or a data transfer there, Webflow uses so-called standard contractual clauses(=Art. 46. para. 2 and 3 DSGVO). Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC) are templates provided by the EU Commission and are intended to ensure that your data comply with European data protection standards even if they are transferred to third countries (such as the USA) and stored there. Through these clauses, Webflow undertakes to comply with the European level of data protection when processing your relevant data, even if the data is stored, processed and managed in the USA. These clauses are based on an implementing decision of the EU Commission. You can find the decision here.
The Webflow CDN provides duplicates of a website's data on different Webflow servers distributed worldwide. This results in faster website loading time, higher reliability, protection against brute force attacks and increased protection against data loss. A large part of the elements and the source code of this website are retrieved from the Webflow CDN when the page is called up. Through this retrieval, your IP address is transferred anonymously to Webflow's servers in other EU countries and stored there for 24 hours. This anonymized storage for 24 hours serves as protection against brute force attacks. Tracking or other further processing of this data does not take place. The use of the Webflow CDN is in the interest of a higher reliability of the website, increased protection against data loss, protection against brute force attacks and a better loading speed of this website. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
Webflow Inc. with headquarters in the USA is certified for the us-European data protection agreement "Privacy Shield", which ensures compliance with the level of data protection applicable in the EU.
Storage of access data in log files
You can visit our websites without providing any personal information.
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- browser type/browser version
- Operating system used
- referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
This data cannot be assigned to specific persons. This data is not merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively if we become aware of specific indications of unlawful use.
The purpose of the processing results from our legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.
An order processing contract has been concluded with our hoster.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. In the event that IP anonymization is activated on this website, however, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google.
You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: Link.
The lawfulness of the processing results from Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) DSGVO for the collection of statistics. The anonymization function of Google Analytics is used.
As an alternative to the browser plugin or within browsers on mobile devices, you can click on the following link to set an opt-out cookie that will prevent the collection by Google Analytics within this website in the future (this opt-out cookie only works in this browser and only for this domain. If you delete the cookies in your browser, you must click this link again): Disable Google Analytics
Google Web Fonts
External fonts, Google Fonts, are used on these web pages. Google Fonts is a service of Google Inc ("Google"). The integration of these web fonts is done by a server call, usually a Google server in the USA. This transmits to the server which of our Internet pages you have visited. Also, the IP address of the browser of the end device of the visitor of these Internet pages is stored by Google.
The use of Google Fonts serves to improve the visual presentation of our website and this therefore constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f) DSGVO.
When using the contact form offered on these pages, the information you enter is transmitted and stored for the purpose of responding to your request. The data will not be passed on to third parties. The legitimacy of the use of the form results from Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) DSGVO.

Security of your data / SSL encryption
In accordance with the legal regulation according to § 13 para. 7 TMG (German Telemedia Act), this site uses SSL encryption, which can be recognized by a lock symbol in the address bar of your browser. When SSL encryption is activated, transmitted data cannot be read by third parties.
As a rule, this is a 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit v3 technology instead. You can tell whether an individual page of our website is encrypted by the closed key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser. We also use appropriate technical and organizational security measures (TOM) to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or against unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
