Data protection

Responsible handling of personal data is a high priority for us. We want you to know when we collect which data and how we use it.

We have taken technical and organizational measures to ensure that data protection regulations are observed both by us and by our external service providers.


The website uses the open source tool Matomo for web analysis. Matomo typically uses cookies, which enables statistical analysis of website usage. For this purpose, usage information is sent, and your IP address is immediately anonymized. Thus, no personal data is stored for statistical analysis.

Matomo Privacy Policy
