This website uses the services of MailChimp to send newsletters. The service provide is the Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. MailChimp is a service that can be used, amongst other purposes, to organize and analyze the sending of newsletters. If you provide data for the purpose of receiving the newsletter (e.g. your email address), this will be stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. MailChimp has a certification in accordance with the EU-US Privacy Shield. The Privacy Shield is a framework agreement between the European Union (EU) and the USA that should ensure the compliance with European data protection standards in the USA.
With the help of MailChimp, we are able to analyze our newsletter campaign. When you open an email sent with MailChimp, a file contained in the email (a so-called web beacon) connects with the servers of MailChimp in the USA. This makes it possible to determine whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links may have been clicked. In addition, technical information is collected (e.g. time of the request, IP address, browser type and operating system). This information cannot be associated with the respective newsletter recipient. It is used exclusively for the statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used in order to better adapt future newsletters to the interests of the recipients.

If you do not want an analysis by MailChimp, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. We provided a corresponding link to do so in every newsletter message. In addition, you can also unsubscribe from the newsletter directly via the website. The data processing takes place on the basis of your consent (article 6, paragraph 1, letter a of the GDPR (EU General Data Protection Regulation). You can revoke this consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. The legality of the data processing procedures that have already taken place will not be affected by this revocation.

The data that you have stored with us with for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us until your removal from the newsletter and after deleted both from our servers as well as the servers of MailChimp after unsubscribing from the newsletter. Data that has been stored with us for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the member area) will remain unaffected by this. You can learn more about the data protection conditions of MailChimp by visiting:

Conclusion of a Data Processing Agreement

We have concluded a so-called “data processing agreement” with MailChimp in which we obligate MailChimp to protect the data of our customers and not to provide it to third parties. This agreement can be viewed by visiting the following link:

These can possibly allow conclusions to be made regarding personal data. Insofar as the collection, processing and usage of your communications-related and/or usage-related information is urgently required, these are subject to the legal regulations regarding data privacy.

Automatically Collected Non-Personal Data

When you access our websites, information will occasionally automatically (that is, not via a registration) be collected that cannot be associated with a specific person (for example, the internet browser used and the operating system; the domain name of the website from which you came; the number of visits; the average dwell time; pages visited). We use this information in order to determine the attractiveness of our website and to improve its performance and contents.

“Cookies” – Information That Is Automatically Stored On Your Computer

Your browser must thus generally allow the storage of cookies. If you delete your cookies regularly, you must click on the link again each time you visit this website.


This website uses Google Maps to present a map. Google Maps is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. By using this website, you declare your consent to data being transmitted to Google through the use of this map. You can read about what data is collected by Google and what this data is used for in the privacy statement of Google. The conditions of use for Google Maps contains additional detailed information.

Google Fonts

We use Google Fonts by the company Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043 USA) on our website.
You do not have to sign in and/or create a password to use Google Fonts. In addition, no cookies will be stored in your browser. The files (CSS, Schriftarten/Fonts) are requested via the Google domains and According to Google, the requests for CSS and fonts are completely separated from all other Google services.
If you have a Google account, you do not need to worry that your Google account information will be sent to Google while using Google Fonts. Google collects the information about the use of CSS (cascading style sheets) and the fonts used and securely stores this data. We will take a detailed look at exactly what this data storage looks like.

Why Google Fonts?

Google Fonts (previously Google Web Fonts) is an interactive inventory of more than 800 fonts that the Google LLC provides for usage free of charge. Many of these fonts are published under the SIL Open Font license, while others have been published using the Apache license. Both of these are free software licenses. As such, we are able to use these freely, without having to pay licensing fees to do so.

Why are we using Google Fonts on our website?

With Google Fonts, we can use fonts on our website without having to upload them onto our own server. Google Fonts is an important component for keeping the quality of our website at a high level.
All Google fonts are automatically optimized for the web and this saves in data volumes and is of great benefit particularly for the use of mobile end devices. When you visit our website, the small file size allows it to be loaded quickly. In addition, Google Fonts are so-called secure web fonts. Different image synthesis systems (rendering) in different browsers, operating systems and mobile end devices can lead to errors. Such errors can optically distort parts of texts and/or entire websites.
Thanks to the fast Content Delivery Network (CDN), there are no cross-platform problems with Google Fonts. Google Fonts supports all standard browsers ( Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera) and functions reliably on most of the modern mobile operating systems Android 2.2+ und iOS 4.2+ (iPhone, iPad, iPod).
We use Google Fonts so that we can present our entire online service as attractively and uniformly as possible. In accordance with article 6, paragraph 1f, letter F of the GDPR (EU General Data Protection Regulation), there is a “justified interest” in the processing of personal data. In this case, “justified interest” is understood as legal as well as economic or ideational interests that are recognized by the legal system.

What data is stored by Google?

If you visit our website, the fonts are loaded via a Google sever. Through this external request, data is transmitted to the Google server. This also allows Google to recognize that you and/or your IP address is visiting our website. The Google Fonts API was developed in order to reduce the collection, storage and usage of end user data to only what is necessary for the efficient delivery of fonts. API, by the way, stands for “application programming interface” and is used, amongst other purposes, as a data transmitter in the field of software. Google Fonts securely stores CSS and font requests with Google and is thus protected. Google can determine the popularity of the fonts through the collected usage figures. Google publishes the results on internal analysis pages, such as, for example, Google Analytics. In addition, Google also uses the data from its own web crawlers to determine what websites are using Google fonts. This data is published in the BigQuery database of Google Fonts. BigQuery is a web service of Google for companies that would like to move and analyze large quantities of data. However, it must also be taken into consideration that with every Google Font request, information such as the IP address, language settings, screen resolution of the browser, version of the browser and name of the browser are automatically transmitted to the Google server. It cannot be clearly determined whether this data is also stored and/or this has not been clearly communicated by Google.

How long and where is the data stored?

Google stores requests for CSS assets on its servers for one day and which are primarily located outside of the EU. This allows us to use the fonts with the help of a Google stylesheet. A stylesheet is a format template that can be used, for example, to easily and quickly change the design and/or font of a website. The font files are stored by Google for one year. In doing so, Google follows the goal of fundamentally improving the load time of websites. If millions of websites refer to the same fonts, these are stored in an interim manner after the first visit and then appear immediately on all other websites that are visited subsequently. Sometimes Google updates font files in order to reduce the file size, increase the coverage of languages and to improve the design.

How can I delete my data and/or prevent it from being stored?

The data that Google stores for a day and/or a year cannot simply be deleted. This data is transmitted to Google automatically when the page is requested. In order to be able to delete this data prematurely, you must contact Google Support at In this case, you can only prevent the storage of data by not visiting our website. In contrast to other web fonts, Google grants us unrestricted access to all fonts. That is, we can access an ocean of fonts on an unlimited basis and thus achieve the optimum for our website. You can find more information about Google Fonts and the answers to other questions at auf While Google does go into some information there that is relevant to privacy, truly detailed information about data storage is not found there. It is relatively difficult (nearly impossible) to obtain truly precise information from Google about stored data. You can read about which data is generally collected by Google and what this data is used for at
