 The legal principles bases of data protection are found in the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the German Telemedia Act (TMG).

Establishment of contact

At the time contact with the provider is established (by means of the contact form or email for example) the user's details will be stored for the purpose of processing the query as well as to respond to any follow-up questions that may arise.

Integration of third-party services and content

It is possible that third-party content, such as YouTube videos, Google Maps content, RSS feeds or graphics, may be integrated into this online site. This shall always be conditional on the relevant content provider (hereinafter "Third-party Provider") recognising the user's IP address, because without the IP address they are unable to send the content to the browser of the relevant user. The IP address is therefore required in order to display such content. We make every effort to only use that content whereby the providers in question only use the IP address for the purpose of delivering the content. However, we have no influence over Third-party Providers who store the IP addresses for statistical purposes. We shall inform users of this fact if we have knowledge of it.


Cookies are small files that enable information to be stored on the user's access device (PC, smartphone or such like) which specifically concerns that device. They help improve the user-friendliness of the web pages and therefore the utility to the user (e.g. storage of log-in data). Secondly, they enable the statistical data of the website utilisation to be recorded, and they can be analysed in order to improve the online service. Users can manage the use of cookies. Most browsers allow users to restrict or prevent the storage of cookies.
