2. Use of own Cookies
When you access certain pages, a so-called “session cookie” is set. This is a small text file that is automatically deleted from your computer at the end of the browser session. The sole purpose of this file is to enable you to use certain applications. You can change the settings of most web browsers so that your browser does not accept new cookies or you can have received cookies deleted. You can usually find out how this works for your browser via its help function.
As with any connection to a web server, the server of our web hosting provider logs and stores certain technical data. This data includes the IP address and the operating system of your device, the data, the access time, the type of browser and the browser request including the origin of the request (referrer). This is necessary for technical reasons in order to provide you with our website. The web hosting provider protects this data from unauthorised access with technical and organisational measures and does not pass it on to third parties. Insofar as we process personal data in the process, we do so because of our interest in providing you with the best possible user experience and ensuring the security and stability of our systems.

If you have registered for our newsletter with your email address, we will store and use your email address to send you our newsletter with information and advertising about us until you have unsubscribed from our newsletter.
For our newsletter service, we use the newsletter service “Mailchimp” from Rocket Sience Group LLC, 675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000 Atlanta, GA 30308.
When you enter your email address to receive the newsletter, it is initially stored at MailChimp for the purpose of sending the owner an email in which he/she can confirm the subscription to the newsletter mailing (“double opt-in”). After such confirmation, the email address is stored permanently at MailChimp until they have unsubscribed from receiving the newsletter or it is deleted by us. MailChimp stores the date of registration as well as the IP address under which the registration took place. There is no further use of their IP address.
We would like to point out that the data collected and used via MailChimp is stored and processed on computers in the USA. By agreeing to receive our newsletter, you declare your consent to this. Furthermore, we have concluded a data processing contract with MailChimp based on the so-called EU standard contractual clauses. Your email address will not be passed on to third parties in any other way.
You can unsubscribe from our newsletter at any time. An unsubscribe link is included in every email containing our newsletter. You can also revoke your consent to the use of your e-mail address at any time in the future. To do so, please use the contact options below.
