It is possible to use our website without providing any personal data. Where personal data is processed on our webpages, this is always done voluntarily where possible. Data that has already been stored, as well as any future personal data, is processed in accordance with the regulations set out below.
We would like to point out that, despite all the measures we take, transferring data over the Internet (e.g. when communicating via email) is not always fully secure, meaning that it is not always possible to guarantee that data is fully protected against access by third parties.
The cookies most commonly used by us are “session cookies”, which have a limited lifetime. They are automatically deleted after the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you erase them. These cookies enable us to recognise you again on your next visit and thus provide you with a better visitor experience.
You can configure your browser to inform you when cookies are set. You can also permit cookies only in specific cases, or block them entirely. You can also configure your browser so that cookies are deleted automatically when you close the browser window. Deactivating cookies may restrict the functionality of this website.

The hosting provider of this website automatically collects and stores information in server log files that your browser sends automatically.
This information includes, in particular:
- Browser type and browser version

- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
This data cannot be attributed to specific persons and is not collated with other data sources. We reserve the right to subsequently inspect this data if we have specific grounds to suspect unlawful use.
This data is primarily collected in order to evaluate and prevent attempted attacks on the website. Furthermore, in certain situations, hosting providers are obligated to provide information on where attacks have come from in order to fight criminal activity.
When you fill in a form such as the contact or training form on our website, all your details are sent to us via email and are also saved in the database in order to secure them against loss and ensure greater traceability. We do not pass this data on to third parties without your consent.
We use the map service “Google Maps” offered by the provider Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. As a result, data is exchanged in the background for tracking purposes. If you do not want your data to be disclosed, please log out of your Google account.
Integration of third-party services and content
We reserve the right to integrate third-party content on our website, such as YouTube videos, map data from Google Maps, RSS feeds, or images from other websites. Furthermore, plugins and share buttons for social networks (referred to as “social plugins” below), such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Xing, are integrated into our website. These social plugins can be identified via their respective logos.
When you visit our website, the social plugin establishes a direct link between your browser and the server of the respective social network. The social plugins enable you to recommend selected content from our website via a particular network to other users of that network and add it to your personal profile.
In doing so, the social networks are informed that you have visited our website with your IP address. If you click on one of the social plugins while you are logged in to one of the social networks, you can also share content from our website on your personal profile. In this case, the social network can link your visit to our website with your personal profile. Please note that we do not receive any information on the content of the transmitted data or its use by the social networks.
For further information on how the social networks collect, process and use your data, please see their respective privacy policies:
If you do not wish to disclose your data, please log out of your Google or social network account or use a plugin such as Ghostery, to block data exchange.
