Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies." They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in your device's memory until you delete them. These cookies make it possible to recognize your browser when you next visit the site.
Server log files
The website hosting provider automatically collects and stores information in server log files which your browser automatically transmits to us. The server log files are anonymized data. This information does not allow any personal conclusions to be drawn about you, but for technical reasons it is indispensable for the delivery and presentation of our contents. These are:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
- Amount of data
- IP address
These data will not be combined with data from other sources.
The basis for data collection is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest to ensure an optimized service provided free of technical errors. Therefore server log files have to be stored.
Log file information is stored for a maximum of 30 days for security reasons (e.g. to investigate misuse or fraud) and then deleted. Data whose further storage is required for evidentiary purposes are excluded from deletion until the incident in question has been finally clarified.
Registration on this website
You can register on our website for events and for our partner portal. We use the data entered only for the purpose of usage of the offer or service for which you have registered.

The data collected during registration will be stored by us for an indefinite period of time. Deletion of the data is not planned. Legal retention periods remain unaffected.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service. It is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. 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.
Google Analytics cookies are stored based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior to optimize both its website and its advertising.
We have activated the IP anonymization feature on this website. Your IP address will be shortened by Google within the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services regarding website activity and Internet usage for the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google.

However, we wish to point out that doing so may mean you will not be able to enjoy the full functionality of this website.

Newsletter - Mailchimp
To send our newsletter we need an e-mail address from you. A verification of the given email address is necessary and the receipt of the newsletter is to be consented to. Additional data is not collected or are voluntary. The data will only be used for sending the newsletter.
The data provided during registration for the newsletter will be processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). A revocation of your already given consent is possible at any time. To cancel your subscription, simply send us an email or unsubscribe via the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. The lawfulness of the data processing operation already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
Data entered to set up the subscription will be deleted in the event of cancellation. Should these data have been transmitted to us for other purposes and elsewhere, they will remain with us.
The newsletter is sent by the mailing service provider "MailChimp", a newsletter delivery platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. The data protection regulations of the mailing service provider can be viewed here: mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/. The Rocket Science Group LLC d/b/a MailChimp is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with the European data protection level (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000TO6hAAG&status=Active). The mailing service provider will be engaged on the basis of our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GPDR.
The mailing service provider can use the recipient's data in pseudonymous form, i.e. without assignment to a user, to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. to technically optimize the mailing and presentation of the newsletter or for statistical purposes. However, the mailing service does not use the data of our newsletter recipients itself to write to them or to pass the data on to third parties.
The newsletters contain a so-called "web-beacon", i.e. a pixel-sized file which is downloaded from our server when the newsletter is opened or, if we use a mailing service provider, from the provider´s server. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval are initially collected.
This information is used to technically improve the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behaviour based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or access times. The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our endeavour, nor, if used, that of the mailing service provider, to observe individual users. Instead, the evaluations help us to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our contents to them or to send different contents according to the interests of our users.
A separate revocation of the success measurement is unfortunately not possible. If you wish to do so,the entire newsletter subscription must be cancelled.
We maintain online presences within social networks and platforms in order to communicate with active customers, interested parties and users and to inform them about our services.
We would like to point out that user data can be processed outside the European Union. This can pose risks for users because, for example, the enforcement of users' rights could be made more difficult. With regard to US providers certified under the Privacy Shield, we would like to point out that they commit themselves to comply with EU data protection standards.
Furthermore, user data is usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. Thus, for example, user profiles can be created from the usage behavior and the resulting interests of the users. The usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the user's computer. The, user's usage behavior and interests are stored in these cookies. Furthermore, data can also be stored in the usage profiles independently of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to them).
The processing of users' personal data is carried out on the basis of our legitimate interests in effective user information and communication with users pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR. If the users are asked by the respective providers for consent to data processing (i.e. to give their consent e.g. by ticking a checkbox or confirming a button), the legal basis of processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a., Art. 7 GDPR.
For a detailed description of the respective processing and the possibilities of objection (opt-out), we refer to the information provided by the providers linked below.
Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we point out that these can be asserted most effectively with the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users and can directly take appropriate measures and provide information.
