Web analysis

It is important to us to design our websites as optimally as possible and thus make them attractive for our visitors. To do this, it is necessary for us to know which parts of it reach our visitors in which way. In our interest, we use the following technologies for this purpose.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of 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 (including your IP address) is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. By using this website, you agree to the processing of the data collected about you by Google in the manner and for the purpose described above. You can object to the collection and storage of your data at any time.

This website uses Google Analytics with the additional function "anonymizeIP()". This means that IP addresses are not stored and processed in full, but only in abbreviated form, in order to exclude any direct conclusion about the person.

Google Tag Manager

This website uses the Google Tag Manager. The service is a solution through which website tags are managed through an interface. The Google Tag Manager is a cookie-less domain and does not collect any personal information. The tool triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. The Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If deactivation has been made at the domain or cookie level, it will persist for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager.


We have embedded YouTube videos in our websites, which are stored on and can be played directly from our websites.

In principle, these YouTube videos are integrated in the extended data protection mode (YouTube internal function), so that initially only a connection to the YouTube server under the Internet domain "" is established and thus your IP address is transmitted to YouTube. Only when you play the videos will any further of your personal data be transmitted to YouTube (Google).

If you are logged in to Google with an existing user account at the same time as visiting our websites, Google may be able to assign the visit to our websites to your user behaviour. In addition, YouTube (Google) may send further cookies to your browser. We have no influence on this procedure and receive no information from YouTube (Google) about the transmitted content. We would like to point out that we, as the provider of our websites, have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by YouTube (Google) and have no possibility to further restrict the transmission of data to YouTube (Google) and its partners. If you do not wish to be associated with your profile on YouTube, you must log out before activating the video.

Analysis of your user behaviour by YouTube (Google):

YouTube (Google) stores your data as user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of their websites. Such an analysis is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our websites.

You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact YouTube (Google) in order to exercise this right.

The data provided in the newsletter registration will be processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). A revocation of your already given consent is possible at any time. For the revocation an informal message by e-mail is sufficient or you unsubscribe via the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter.

Mailjet is a service with which the newsletter dispatch can be organized and analyzed. The data you enter to subscribe to the newsletter is stored on Mailjet's servers in the EU.

Our newsletters sent with Mailjet enable us to analyse the behaviour of the newsletter recipients.

Further information on data analysis by Mailjet-Newsletter can be found at:

Mailjet also allows us to divide the newsletter recipients into different categories ("segmentation"). The newsletter recipients can be subdivided according to the data entered during registration. In this way, the newsletters can be better adapted to the respective target groups.

Detailed information about the functions of Mailjet can be found in the following link:

The data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time by unsubscribing the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out shall not be affected by the revocation.

If you do not want to receive analysis from Mailjet, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a corresponding link in every newsletter message. 

The data you provide us with for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from our servers as well as from the servers of Mailjet after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data that has been stored by us for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the member area) remains unaffected by this.
