5.1 Our website uses cookies. When you use the website, cookies are stored on your computer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard disk and assigned to the browser you are using, and that provide certain information to the party that places the cookie (in this case us).

Most of the cookies we use are what are called “session cookies”. These are automatically deleted after your visit ends. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit.

5.2 Cookies that are necessary for carrying out the electronic communication process or for providing certain functions that you desire (for example, the shopping cart function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. f) GDPR.

Insofar as other cookies (such as cookies for analysing your browsing habits) are stored, they are explained in a separate section of this Data Protection Declaration.

Within the framework of Matomo's range analysis, the following data is processed on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. our interest in the analysis, optimisation and commercial operation of our website as defined in Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR): the type and version of browser that you use, the operating system you use, your country of origin, the date and time of the server request, the number of visits, how long you spend on the website and the external links you use. The IP address of the user is anonymised before being stored.

Matomo uses cookies that are stored on users' computers and enable an analysis of how users use our website. In this case, pseudonymised usage profiles of users can be created from the processed data. The cookies have a storage period of one week. The information generated by the cookie on your use of this website will only be stored on our server and will not be passed on to third parties.

Users can at any time dissent to the anonymised collection of data by the Matomo programme, with effect for the future, by clicking on the link below. In this case, what is called an “opt-out cookie” will be stored in your browser, with the result that Matomo will no longer collect any session data. However, if users delete their cookies, this means that the opt-out cookie will also be deleted and must therefore be reactivated by the user.

The logs containing the users’ data will be erased after 6 months at the latest.


Our website uses the etracker analysis service. The provider is etracker GmbH, Erste Brunnenstrasse 1, 20459 Hamburg, Germany. From the data, usage profiles can be created under a pseudonym. Cookies can also be used for this purpose. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in the cache of your browser. The cookies make it possible to recognise your browser on subsequent visits. Without the specific consent of the data subject, the data collected using the etracker technologies will not be used to personally identify visitors to our website and will not be combined with personal data of the bearer of the pseudonym.

You can at any time dissent to this data collection and storage with effect for the future.

In order to prevent the collection and storage of your visitor data in the future, you can use the following link to get an opt-out cookie from etracker: this ensures that no visitor data from your browser will be collected and stored by etracker in the future:  

This results in the setting of an opt-out cookie called “cntcookie” by etracker. Please do not delete this cookie for as long as you wish to keep your dissent active.

13. reCAPCHA

To protect requests that you submit via the contact form, we use the reCAPTCHA service of Google Inc. (Google). The query serves to distinguish whether the request has been entered by a human being or automatically by a robot, in an abuse of the service.

The query includes the sending of the IP address and, if necessary, of further data needed by Google for the reCAPTCHA service. For this purpose, your entered data will be forwarded to Google and further used there. The processing is carried out on the basis of our legitimate interests, Article 6 para. 1 f) GDPR. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted by Google to a server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this data on behalf of the operator of this website in order to evaluate your use of this service. The IP address transferred by your browser within the framework of reCaptcha will not be combined with other data by Google. This data is subject to Google’s divergent data protection stipulations.
