What are Personal Data?
“Personal data” are any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual person, such as a person’s name or also their hobbies.

The legal basis for data protection can be found in particular in Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data, on the free movement of such data and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (“General Data Protection Regulation”, GDPR), as well as in the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and Telemedia Act (TMG).

The Website partly uses so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any harm to your device and do not contain any viruses. Cookies serve the purpose of making the service more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your device and in your browser.
Most of the cookies used on this Website are so-called session cookies. After the end of the session these cookies will be deleted automatically. The session cookies are used in order to associate successive page requests with the individual users, who at the same time access the Website. Other cookies will be stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable the controller to recognize your browser during your next visit.
You can adjust your browser to notify you, before you receive a cookie or to decide to accept cookies on a case-by-case basis, to completely or partly exclude all incoming cookies and to activate the deletion of cookies automatically when the browser is closed. You may manage many online advertisement cookies provided by companies via the American web page http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the web page of the European Union http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices/. However, in this event the usage and especially the convenience of usage without using any cookies may be limited.
In the event personal data are processed such processing is based on Art. 6 (1) f. GDPR with the legitimate interest of quality assurance.
The Website uses the service “Google Analytics” by Google (inter alia Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland and Google LLC, Mountain View, CA, USA). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help analyze how users use the Website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the Website, such as browser type/version; operating system used; referrer URL (previously visited page); host name of accessing computer (IP address); time of server request when using the website are generally transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States, where IP anonymisation is activated on the Website, but Google’s IP address is shortened in advance within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is therefore not transmitted to a Google server in the USA and is shortened there. IP anonymization is active on this Website. Google will use this information on the controller’s behalf to evaluate the use of the Website by users, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the controller with other services relating to the use of the Website and the internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google. When personal data are processed this is based on the legitimate interests of improving the Website and related services based on Art. 6 (1) f. GDPR or TMG.
Google LLC is certified according to the “Privacy Shield” agreement between the European Union and the USA and guarantees compliance with applicable European data protection regulations (see: https://www.privacyshield.gov/).
For users who have their usual residence in the European Economic Area or Switzerland, Google Ireland Limited is the data controller for your data, unless otherwise stated in the privacy notices of a particular service. Google Ireland Limited is therefore the company affiliated with Google which is responsible for processing your data and complying with applicable data protection laws.
