The following regulations inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the collection, processing and use of personal data. This data protection declaration only refers to our web pages. If you are redirected to other sites via links on our pages, please inform yourself there about the respective handling of your data.

As far as possible, your personal data is encrypted by digital security systems and protected against damage, destruction or unauthorised access by technical and organisational measures.

Browser data

For technical reasons and in order to maintain and improve functionality, information that your internet browser transmits to us is automatically collected, stored and, where necessary, passed on to third parties. Our legitimate interest for processing is the operational security of the website in accordance with Article 6(1) f) DSGVO.

These data are:

Browser type and version
Operating system used
Website from which you visit us (referrer URL)
Website you are visiting
Date and time of your access
Your internet protocol data (IP address)
Amount of data transferred
Access status (files transferred, file not found, etc.)
This anonymous data is stored separately from any personal data you may have provided and thus does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about a specific person. They can be evaluated for statistical purposes in order to optimise our internet presence and our offers. After evaluation, this data is deleted by us and our service providers.

SSL or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.


Anonymised usage profiles

Unless otherwise stated here, it is not necessary for you to provide personal data in order to use our website. Each time a user accesses the above-mentioned web pages and each time a file is retrieved, data about this process is stored in a log file. We use this data to make your visit to our website technically possible. Furthermore, we use this data for statistical purposes in order to improve the design and layout of our website. No personal use is made of this data. Our legitimate interest for processing is the operational security and functionality of the website in accordance with Article 6 (1) f) DSGVO.

In detail, the following data record is stored for each retrieval

Name of the retrieved file
Date and time of the retrieval
Amount of data transferred
Message as to whether the retrieval was successful
Description of the type of web browser used
Requesting domain
Country of origin of the domain
In addition, we use anonymised user profiles to measure the usage of free content; we explain this under:

Analysis of usage behaviour for subscribed free email services

We aim to make the email information we send as valuable as possible to you, the user. In order to be able to offer you tailored content and offers that you find really useful, we regularly evaluate the usage behaviour of our email recipients for this purpose. This means, for example, whether an email was read at all (opening behaviour) and which messages and offers were read and which were not (click behaviour). This data is expressly not passed on to third parties, but is used exclusively to improve the quality of our e-mails to you. If you do not agree with this data collection and evaluation, you can object at any time by sending an email to

Use of personal data

If you contact us by e-mail, fax or telephone, we may request some personal information from you. In each case, we ask for the data that we need to be able to process your contact request in a meaningful way, but at least your surname and first name, e-mail address and telephone number. The legal basis for this is Article 6 paragraph 1a), b) and f) DSGVO. In addition, you can voluntarily provide us with further data as part of the contact request. The data will be stored by us and used for the purpose of answering your contact request. Some services of our portal are offered in cooperation with partner companies. In order to be able to offer these partner services, it may be necessary for us to provide your personal data to these partner companies as well. In this case too, however, the data will be used exclusively for the purpose of responding to your contact enquiry, and this will also be done by our partner. The voluntary provision of this data constitutes consent to the use of the data in the above sense. Your consent to the collection and use of data will be recorded by us. The legal basis for data processing is the consent of the data subject in accordance with Article 6 (1) a) DSGVO.

Inventory data

Your personal data, insofar as it is required for the establishment, content or amendment of the contractual relationship (inventory data), is used exclusively for the purpose of processing the contract. The legal basis for the processing of this data is found in Article 6 paragraph 1 . b) DSGVO.

For example, your name and address must be passed on to the billing service provider in order to bill you for chargeable services. Without your express consent or without a legal basis, your personal data will not be passed on to third parties outside of the processing of the contract.

By order of the competent authorities, we may provide information on inventory data in individual cases, insofar as this is necessary for the purposes of criminal prosecution, to avert danger by the police authorities of the federal states, to fulfil the statutory tasks of the federal and state authorities for the protection of the constitution, the Federal Intelligence Service or the Military Counter-Intelligence Service or to enforce intellectual property rights.

We carefully examine such requests – should it come to that – within the framework of the means available to us and only pass on your data if the legal obligation appears to be compelling for us. In these cases, the legal basis for data processing is the fulfilment of legal obligations of the responsible party in accordance with Article 6 (1) c) DSGVO, as well as relevant special laws.

User-dependent services

Some of our services require the use of personal data. These include:

Registration with user profile.
The legal basis for data processing is a contract or an initiation of a contract with the data subject Article 6(1)(b) EU-DSGVO. In addition, consent is given after registration. The legal basis of the data processing is then the consent of the data subject in accordance with Article 6 (1) a) DSGVO.

We use so-called “cookies” on our website. These are small text files that are sent from our web server to your computer in order to store certain information (e.g. identification features).
If you use our website anonymously, cookies are used to carry out statistical evaluations of usage, including the recording of new and returning visitors. Furthermore, we use cookies to measure the extent of use of free content. In order to be able to determine this usage volume, our website sends a so-called unit ID to your browser. This is an anonymous code that serves the sole purpose of recording the content that has already been used free of charge. If you use our website using your user profile, cookies are used to identify your browser for the duration of your visit, including when you call up various pages.
The presentation of our website is also possible without the storage of cookies. You can deactivate the storage of cookies in the settings of your browser or set it in such a way that it informs you of the intended storage by an Internet site. In this case, you decide whether to accept the cookie. However, for the full functionality of our website, it is necessary for technical reasons to allow temporary cookies in their entirety. Even if cookies are deactivated, our website sends the described unit ID to your browser in order to measure the extent of use of free content.

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. According to Google, the IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

Third country transfer

For the USA, the European Commission adopted its adequacy decision on July 10, 2023. Google LLC is certified under the EU-US Privacy Framework. Since Google servers are distributed worldwide and a transfer to third countries (for example, Singapore) cannot be completely ruled out, we have also concluded the EU standard contractual clauses with the provider.

We use Google Ads. Google Ads is an online advertising program of Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Google Ads enables us to display advertisements in the Google search engine or on third-party websites when the user enters certain search terms on Google (keyword targeting). Furthermore, targeted advertisements can be displayed based on the user data available at Google (e.g. location data and interests) (target group targeting). As the website operator, we can evaluate this data quantitatively by analyzing, for example, which search terms led to the display of our advertisements and how many advertisements led to corresponding clicks.

The use of this service is based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG. Consent can be revoked at any time.

Google Analytics Remarketing

We use cross-device remarketing or targeting, which is made possible by Google Analytics Remarketing in conjunction with Google Ads and Google DoubleClick.

How it works: This function makes it possible to link target groups that were created using Google Analytics Remarketing with the cross-device functions of Google Ads and Google DoubleClick. This allows personalized advertising messages based on previous usage and surfing behavior on one device (e.g. cell phone) to be displayed on other devices (e.g. tablet or PC).

Consent: If users give their consent, Google links the web and app browsing history to the user’s Google account in order to display personalized advertising on each end device on which the user logs in with their Google account.

Data processing: Google Analytics temporarily records users’ Google-authenticated IDs and links them to Google Analytics data in order to define and create target groups for cross-device advertising.

Objection option: Users can permanently object to cross-device remarketing / targeting by deactivating personalized advertising in their Google account. This can be done via this link.

Legal basis: The aggregation of the collected data in a Google Account is based exclusively on the consent of the user (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). If data is collected that is not merged into a Google account, this is done on the basis of the website operator’s legitimate interest in the anonymized analysis of website visitors (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR).

It is important to note that users have the right to give or withdraw their consent and that data collection on their Google Account or opting out of cross-device personalization of their advertising may affect their privacy settings.

You can set the selection of cookies to be stored by making the appropriate settings in your browser software or by using the cookie notice banner.

Contact form

If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact details you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 a) DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time.

Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.


Plugins and tools
