The following information will provide you with an overview of what will happen with your personal data when you visit this website. The term “personal data” comprises all data that can be used to personally identify you. This privacy policy describes according to Art. 4 (7) EU-DSGVO which data will be collected when the website will be visited and for what purpose it will be processed.

Since the protection of your personal data is of particular concern to us, we strictly adhere to the legal requirements of the DSG and the EU-DSGVO when collecting and processing your personal data.

In the following, we inform you in detail about the scope and purpose of our data processing as well as your rights as a data subject. Therefore, please read our privacy policy carefully before you continue to use our website and, if necessary, give your consent to data processing.


The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data. For the use of individual services, however, different rules may apply, to which we will refer to you separately.

We use the personal data provided by you exclusively within the scope of fulfilling the respective purpose of the processing (e.g. answering a question).
