Cookies cannot be used to launch programmes or transfer viruses to your computer. Based on the information contained in cookies, we can help you navigate our website more easily and view it correctly.
Under no circumstances will the data we collect be passed on to third parties or linked with your personal information without your consent.
Registration on our website
To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption techniques (such as SSL) over HTTPS.
When leaving comments on the blog, the comment creation time and the user name previously chosen by the website visitor will also be saved together with the actual comment. This is for our safety as we may be prosecuted for any illegal content on our website, even if created by users.
If you contact us by e-mail or contact form, the information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing the request and possible follow-up questions.

We adhere to the principles of data reduction and data economy. Therefore, we only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as required by the various statutory retention periods. After the respective purpose ceases to exist or the periods expire, the corresponding data are blocked or erased routinely and according to the legal regulations.
Use of Piwik (Matomo)
