Data Protection Statement

Protecting your personal data is very important to us.
This data protection statement explains the nature, scope, and purpose of the collection and use of personal data on the websites,,,, and

Access data / Server log files
The website collects data regarding each access to an offer (so-called server log files).
The access data consists of:
Name of the accessed website, file, date and time of the access as well as the amount of transferred data, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, the referrer URL (the previous page visit), the IP address and the requesting provider.
According to existing law, the IP address is anonymized.

The provider uses the protocol data only for statistical evaluations relating to the purpose of operation, security and offer optimization.

When a user calls up an offer, one or more cookies are stored on his/her computer. A cookie is a small file that contains a specific string of characters and explicitly identifies your browser. With the help of these cookies providers improve the comfort and quality of their services, for example by storing user settings. Cookies do no harm to your computer and do not contain viruses.

Visitor data analysis
User access is statistically evaluated in order to continuously improve a website. Cookies are used for this purpose. The information gathered by the cookies regarding the usage of an offer is stored on the provider’s server in Germany. According to existing law, the IP address is anonymized.

Matomo (formerly Piwik)
The website uses Matomo, an open source software, for the statistical evaluation of user access. Matormo uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on a user’s computer and that enable an analysis of a user’s usage of a website. The information regarding website usage gathered by the cookie is stored on the provider’s server in Germany. The IP address is immediately anonymized after being processed and before it is stored.
You can object to the usage and storage of the data from your visit for evaluation purposes by un-clicking the checkbox per mouse click. In this case a so-called “opt-out cookie” is placed that prevents Matomo from gathering any type of session data.
Please note: when you delete your cookies, you may also delete the opt-out cookie so that you may have to reactivate it.
