If you actively supply us with your data via our website, we shall use them solely for the purposes you have specified. Without your consent the data will not be disclosed to third parties, with the exception of our IT provider.

2. Cookies

Cookies are small text files which are saved to your terminal device when you access our website. Using cookies makes it easier for you to interact with our website and services and ensure smooth and correct application. Most of the used cookies are session cookies, which are saved to your terminal device only temporarily and are automatically deleted after the end of your visit. Other cookies will remain on your terminal device until you decide to delete them. These types of cookies allow identification of the user the next time they use the web application. If you do not agree to the use of cookies, you can block the use of cookies or delete them at any time. For this purpose, a variety of tools are available (including browser control elements and settings). Please consult the Help option in your web browser for more details on how to block cookies. In case you deactivate the use of cookies, please note that we cannot guarantee the proper functioning of all our website offerings.

3. Statistics

In order to improve our online services we analyse visitors’ statistics from time to time. To do so, we use the open-source web analytics tool “Matomo”. Matomo uses cookies (see above paragraph) to analyse the use of website applications. To this end, usage information generated by cookies is transferred to the server of our IT service provider and stored for usage analysis purposes. This solely serves to optimise our website. During this process, your IP-address is instantly rendered anonymous, so that it can no longer be traced to you or your terminal device. Anonymous, aggregated statistical data are stored separately from any personal data you may have provided and cannot be traced back to an individual person.

You can deactivate data storage by Matomo by changing your browser settings in a way that will ensure that you are not included in such statistical analysis (referred to as “do-not-track”).

4. Log files

When you visit our website, the following information will be automatically collected and stored in log files: your IP-address, the accessed page, name and version of your web browser, referrer as well as date and time of your access. These data will not be processed in a personally identifiable form. We reserve the right for a statistical evaluation of anonymous data records.

Storage of these data is necessary for safety reasons, to ensure the stability and operational reliability of our system. Log files are deleted after a maximum of two years.

5. Video player

The videos and livestreams offered on this website are realised using the video platform “JW Player”, which is offered by LongTail Ad Solutions, Inc., d/b/a JW Player. In the course of integration, certain data are sent to JW Player, including IP address, terminal type, screen resolution, browser and operating system.

6. Google Analytics

This website uses the “Google Analytics” service offered by Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) to analyse website usage by users. The service uses “cookies” – text files that are stored on your terminal device. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

This website uses IP anonymisation. The user’s IP address is truncated within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area. This truncation eliminates the direct personal reference to your IP address. As part of the agreement for contract data processing , which the website operators concluded with Google LLC, Google will use the information collected to evaluate the use of the website, compile reports on website activity and to provide other internet-related services.

You can stop cookies from being stored on your device by adjusting your browser settings accordingly. It is not guaranteed that you can access all functions of this website without restrictions if your browser does not allow cookies.
