  • Requested webpage or file
  • Browser type and version

The temporary processing of this data by the system is necessary to enable the delivery of the website to your device. For this purpose, the IP address must be processed in particular. There is no merging of this data with other data sources. The information is used solely to control the website traffic and to maintain the technical operation of the servers and the network of our host, including abuse prevention. The legal basis for this is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. For more information, please refer to the website of our host.

If you give consent for optional services and non-essential cookies, the legal basis is § 25(1) TTDSG, Article 6(1)(a) GDPR (consent).

4. Integration of Third-Party Services and Content


It is possible that within our online offerings, content from third parties from other websites may be integrated.

We strive to only use content from providers who use the IP address solely for the purpose of delivering the content. Third-party providers may store the IP address, for example, for statistical purposes.


We partially integrate the following services and content from third parties, for which you can also view additional service providers and information in our consent tool (icon at the bottom left) and revoke consents:
