What are Cookies?

Cookies are small data files that are placed on the visitor's local PC via a website.

The different types of cookies include:
session cookies or temporary cookies, which are automatically deleted shortly after your visit;
technical cookies, which can keep track of your language preference;
tracking cookies, which monitor and track your behaviour on the website;
social cookies, which are linked to social media.

The website's server can read only the cookies it has placed itself and does not have access to the rest of the information stored on your PC, laptop, tablet or mobile phone.

Special and/or sensitive personal data that we process:

We do not normally process any special or sensitive personal data relating to you.
We do not intend to collect data about website visitors who are under the age of 16, unless they have permission from their parents or guardian to that end.
As we obviously cannot check whether an Internet user is actually over 16, we urge parents to carefully monitor their children's online activities in order to prevent data about children being collected without the required consent.
If for any reason you believe that we have collected personal information about a minor without this consent, you are kindly requested to contact us using the details above.

Reasons for obtaining data

We process your personal data for the following purposes:

Sending out our newsletter
We also analyse your behaviour on the website to help us improve the service the website offers.

Data storage time
We will not keep your personal data for longer than is strictly necessary to achieve the purposes for which your data is collected.

Sharing with others
Your data will never be sold to third parties.

Accessing, changing or deleting data
You have the right to access, correct or delete your personal data at any time.

Use the details above to send us a request to access, correct or delete any of your personal data.

In order to ensure that the request for access, correction or deletion has actually been submitted by you, we ask you to enclose a copy of your proof of identity with the request. Your request will then be processed as soon as possible and at the latest within four weeks.


The protection of your data is taken very seriously and appropriate measures are taken to prevent misuse, loss, unauthorised access, unwanted disclosure and unauthorised changes.
If you have the impression that your data is not properly protected or that there are signs of misuse, please contact us using the details above.
Under no circumstances may we be held liable for any direct or indirect damage that may be caused by improper or unlawful use of the personal data by a third party.
