Type and purpose of the processing

Like many other websites, we use so-called ‘cookies.’ Cookies are small text files that are stored on your device (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when you visit our website.

With cookies, we receive certain information such as IP address, type of browser, and operating system used.

Cookies cannot be used to start programs or to transmit viruses to a computer. Based on the information contained in cookies, we can facilitate your navigation of our site and correctly display our webpages for you.

The data collected by us will not be shared with third parties under any circumstances, nor will a link to personal data be created without your consent.

Of course, you can view our website without cookies. The Internet browser is regularly configured to accept cookies.

In general, you can disable the use of cookies via your browser settings at any time.

Please use your Internet browser’s help function to learn how to change these settings, and keep in mind that individual features of our website may not work if you have disabled the use of cookies.

Commentary function

Type and purpose of the processing

When users leave comments on our website, the time of their creation and the username selected by the website visitor are saved. This is for our security, as we may be prosecuted for any illegal content on our website, even if users created it.

Type and purpose of the processing

The processing of the data entered as a comment occurs based on a legitimate interest (Art. 6 Para. 1 (a) GDPR). With the commentary feature, we aim to provide you with an uncomplicated way to interact. The information you enter will be stored to process the request as well as possible follow-up inquiries.


Recipients of the data may be processors.

Retention period

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the reason they were collected. This is generally the case when the communication with the user has ended, and the company can see from the circumstances that the particular issue has been clarified.

Mandatory or required provision

The provision of your data is voluntary. Without the provision of your data, we cannot guarantee you access to our commentary function.

Using script libraries (Google Webfonts)

Type and purpose of the processing

To present our content correctly and graphically appealing across all browsers, we use ‘Google Webfonts’ from Google LLC (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, from now on ‘Google’) to display fonts on this website. You’ll find the data protection guidelines of the library operator Google here:

Legal basis

Your consent is the legal basis for the integration of Google Webfonts and the associated data transfer to Google (Art. 6 Para. 1 (a) GDPR).


The use of script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the operator of the library. It is theoretically possible – but currently also unclear whether and to what end – that the operator, in this case, Google, will collect data.

Retention period

We do not collect any personal data via the integration of Google Webfonts. You’ll find additional information on Google Webfonts at and in Google’s privacy policy:

Third country transfers

Google processes your data in the United States of America and is subject to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield:

Mandatory or required provision

The provision of your data is neither legally nor contractually required. However, the correct presentation of standard-fonts content is not possible without this provision.

Revocation of consent

The programming language JavaScript is regularly used to display content. Thus, you can opt-out of the data processing by disabling JavaScript execution in your browser or by installing a JavaScript blocker. Please note that this may result in functional limitations on the website.
