What is a cookie?
On this website, we use cookies. A cookie is a simple small file that is sent with pages from this website and stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. The information stored therein can be used on a next visit

What kind of cookies do we use?
On our website we use functional cookies, analytical cookies and tracking cookies. For example, the functional cookies ensure we remember that you have clicked away from the cookie notification or scrolled on. We use the analytical and tracking cookies to collect insights into the visits to our website (statistics) to continuously improve our website and offer you the best possible experience.

Google Analytics
A cookie from the American company Google is placed via our website as part of the Analytics service. We use this service to track and receive reports on how visitors use the website. Google may provide this information to third parties if it is legally obliged to do so, or if third parties process the information on behalf of Google. We have no influence on this. We have not given Google permission to use the obtained analytics information for other Google services.

The information collected by Google is anonymised to the greatest possible extent. Your IP address is explicitly not provided. The information is transferred to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google states that it adheres to the Privacy Shield principles and is affiliated with the Privacy Shield programme of the US Department of Commerce. This means there is an appropriate level of protection for the processing of any personal data.

Google Recaptcha

We use the reCAPTCHA service from Google Inc. (Google) to protect data sent via this website. This feature checks whether a message is sent by a person, to prevent spam bots, for example, from automatically sending messages or leaving comments. The IP address of a visitor and possibly other data are sent to enable Google reCAPTCHA to work. The content of a message is sent to and processed by Google. The IP address is abbreviated and therefore made anonymous in countries that are part of the EU and states that participate in the Treaty for the European Economic Area. In exceptional cases, an IP address is transmitted to a Google server in the United States in full and abbreviated there. On behalf of the owner of this website, Google uses this data to evaluate your use of this service. The IP address provided by reCAPTCHA will not be merged with other Google data. The collection of this data is subject to Google’s data protection rules. More information about Google’s privacy policy can be found at

By using reCAPTCHA, you agree to Google processing data about you in the manner and for the purposes described above.
