Personal Data

Personal data is data related to you. This includes, for example, your name, mailing address and e-mail address. You do not need to disclose any personal data in order to visit our website. However, in some cases, we require your name and address as well as other information to be able to provide you with the requested service.

The same applies if we send informational materials upon your request or respond to your inquiries. In this context, only data that you have sent to us of your own accord is stored, and we will always notify you of this.

When you use one of our services, we generally collect only data that is necessary to be able to provide you with this service. Provision of any additional information to us is completely voluntary. We process personal data in order to be able to offer you our service or to pursue our commercial goals.

Automatically saved data

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in server log files that your browser transfers to us automatically. These include:

  • Type and version of the browser
  • Date and time of access
  • The IP address

This data is not merged with any other data sources. Processing takes place in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR based on our legitimate interest in improving the stability and function of our website. For reasons of technical security, particularly to prevent attempted attacks on our web server, this data is stored by us for a short time. This data cannot be traced back to individual persons. After seven days at the latest, the data is anonymized by abbreviating the IP address at the domain level so that it is no longer possible to trace it back to the individual user. The data (in anonymized form) is also used for statistical purposes. No comparison with other databases or forwarding to third parties, in whole or in part, takes place.


When you register for one of our online events, we collect certain personal data from you and process it. We do this specifically for the purpose of handling your registration and running the event. The legal basis for this is Article 6(1) (b) of the GDPR (concerning the performance of a contract). Your data will be erased after the event. 
In accordance with the legal requirements of Section 7(3) of the German Act Against Unfair Competition, we are authorized to use the e-mail address that you specified upon conclusion of the contract for direct advertising of other similar products or services that we offer. You will receive these event recommendations from us regardless of whether you have subscribed to a newsletter. If you do not want to receive these recommendations from us via e-mail, you can object to the use of your e-mail address for this purpose at any time without incurring any costs beyond the usual tariffs associated with data transmission services. To do this, simply notify us in writing. Of course, every e-mail also contains an unsubscribe link.

The information stored in the cookies lets the website recognize you automatically when you next visit, making the site easier for you to use. The legal basis for the use of cookies is the legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 of the GDPR.

Of course, you are also able to visit our website without accepting cookies.

You can request that we restrict the processing of your data if

Right to data portability:
You can demand that we provide you with the data you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and that you can transmit this data to another responsible party without interference from us, insofar as
