Legal notes:


The contents of our pages were created with great care. However, we can accept no liability for the correctness or completeness of the content, nor for it being up to date. We offer links to external third-party web pages, over whose content we have no influence. We can thus also accept no liability for this third-party content. The owners or operators of the linked websites are always responsible for their content. The linked pages were reviewed for possible legal violations when the links were created. At the time of linking, no illegal content was apparent. We do not constantly check the contents of linked pages. If we become aware of legal violations, we will immediately remove the links concerned.


The duplication, processing, dissemination or any kind of use of the content on our pages is generally prohibited. All exceptions require either our written consent or the written consent of the author concerned. These pages may only be downloaded for personal and not for commercial use. Insofar as the content of these pages was not produced by the owner, the rights of third parties were respected. Third-party content has been identified as such. Should you become aware of any violations of copyright, we would ask to be notified accordingly. If we become aware of legal violations, we will immediately remove the content concerned.

Data protection

We have made it possible for you to use our services. The protection of your personal data is important to us. Personal data means individual details about personal or material circumstances of a particular or determinable natural person, such as name, address, postal address, email address, phone number and IP address. Information which cannot be associated with your identity is not included.

By using our services or by your registration (‘Create account’), you declare that you agree (this agreement may be revoked at any time) to your personal data being collected, stored and used according to these terms and in accordance with existing legal regulations. Please read our data protection rules under a)–c) so that you know whether, where and how (long) we will use your personal data after we have recorded it.

a) The extent, nature and purpose of the data processing

Each time our services are used, we automatically record and save information in our server log files, which your browser sends to us when you use our services. This information includes the type of browser, IP address and your current request, as well as the date and time of each action. We save this data, without your IP address, for statistical purposes and to be able to analyse user behaviour so as to improve and develop new services. We therefore do not use this information to create a personal profile about you, and we delete or anonymise the server login files at regular intervals. In certain parts of our services, we also save certain information in the form of so-called cookies. These are small text files which are saved on your computer. You can easily prevent the use of cookies by deactivating the acceptance of cookies in your browser settings. If you accept cookies, we will save the data in the cookies on your hard drive and will recall this information when you subsequently use our website from the same computer using the same browser. This allows us to better understand the behaviour of our users, and therefore better able to offer content and matching services which correspond to their requirements.

If you register with us, we will record the following information: username, user ID and email address. We need this information so that we can verify your registration (‘double opt-in’) and so that we can get in touch with you. In this way, we can also exclude duplicate registrations. Additionally, under certain circumstances, we may ask during the registration for other personal data such as your name, date of birth, age or gender, which we will also use for the above-mentioned purposes.

Finally, we will also use your email address to send you our newsletter, if you have expressly permitted this use during your registration or at some later time. With our newsletter, you will regularly receive up-to-date and interesting information from us.

Without your permission, we will not pass on your personal information to third parties. If, when processing data for an order, information is passed on to a service supplier, this is bound by the German Federal Data Protection Act and other legal regulations. Otherwise, we will only send your personal data to an office entitled to request information if we are obliged to do so for legal reasons or due to a court order.

b) Your right of withdrawal

You may withdraw your permission for us to save and use the specified data at any time by writing to us at one of our contact addresses or by sending us an email, without any reason being specified. Please note, however, that without saving and using your details, we can only offer our services to a restricted extent, as our services are in part connected to this data.

c) Your right to information

You have the right at any time to request information about personal data saved about you, its origin and its recipients, as well as the purpose of its storage.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a Web analytics service from Google Inc. (‘Google’). Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, which are text files saved on your computer and which make it possible to analyse your use of our website. The information created by these cookies about your use of this website is generally sent to a Google server in the USA and saved there. If the option is activated on this website to anonymise IP addresses, then, within member states of the European Union or in other states contracted to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, Google will first shorten your IP address. Only in exceptional cases will a full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Acting for the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website so as to build up reports about activity on the website and to provide other services connected with the use of the website and the Internet for the operator of this website. The IP address which your browser sends as part of Google Analytics will not be brought together with other data from Google. You can prevent cookies from being saved by a corresponding setting in your browser software; however, we would point out that in this case you will not be able to fully use all of the services which this website provides. Additionally, you can prevent the recording of the information created by the cookie relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing a browser plug-in which is available under the following link (

You can prevent the recording of data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An ‘opt-out’ cookie will be set which will prevent your data from being recorded in future when you visit this website:

You will find more information on the conditions of use and data protection under and under We would like to point out that, on this website, Google Analytics has been extended by the ‘gat._anonymizeIp();’ code to ensure that IP addresses are recorded anonymously (so-called IP masking).
