Collection of general information
When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and the like. This is only information that does not identify you personally. This information is technically necessary for the correct delivery of content requested by you from websites and is mandatory when using the Internet. Anonymous information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us in order to optimize our Internet presence and the technology behind it.
Like many other websites, we also use so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. This automatically provides us with certain data such as IP address, browser used, operating system via your computer and your connection to the Internet.
Cookies cannot be used to start programs or transfer viruses to a computer. The information contained in cookies enables us to make navigation easier for you and to display our web pages correctly.
Under no circumstances will the data collected by us be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.

If you contact us by e-mail or contact form, the information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing your inquiry and for possible follow-up questions.

After the respective purpose has ceased or these periods have expired, the corresponding data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.
Integrated Vimeo videos
Our website uses plugins of the video platform Vimeo. The site is operated by Vimeo, LLC, 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA. When you visit one of our Vimeo video-equipped sites, a connection is established to Vimeo's servers. This will tell the Vimeo server which of our pages you have visited.
If you are logged into your Vimeo account, you allow Vimeo to associate your browsing behavior directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your Vimeo user account before using our website and deleting the corresponding cookies from Vimeo.
