Serve the public trust. Protect the innocent. Uphold the law.

The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.

Insofar as personal data (e. g. name, address or e-mail addresses) are collected on our pages, this is always done, as far as possible, on a voluntary basis. These data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e. g. when communicating by e-mail) may have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.


On our website we offer you the opportunity to contact us, either by email. In such event, information provided by the user is stored for the purpose of facilitating communications with the user. No data is transferred to third parties. Nor is any of this information matched to any information that may be collected by other components of our website.


Some of the Internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and contain no viruses. Cookies are used to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your mobile device until you delete them. The cookies stored by our website are only used to identify editors who use our content management system. We honestly don't care who you are, where you come from or where you go. 

You can set your browser in such a way that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, you can exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally and you can activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. When cookies are disabled, the functionality of this website may be limited.


The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us.
The server log files contain:

— Browser type and browser version

— Time of the server request
This data cannot be assigned to specific persons. This data is not combined with other data sources. We reserve the right to check this data at a later date if we become aware of specific indications of illegal use.

According to the current state of knowledge it is technically almost impossible to prevent the creation of these server-logo files. So please.


This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and the lock symbol in your browser line."". If SSL encryption is enabled, the information you provide to us cannot be read by third parties.


The use of contact data published within the scope of the imprint obligation to send advertising and information material that has not been expressly requested is hereby objected to.
