The information on data processing provided below relates to visitors to our website.

Whenever you access our website, your browser sends data to our web server. This data is used to provide the web page you requested. The name of our hosting provider is Domainfactory. The data sent by your browser includes:
• inputs,
• the amount of data transferred,
• the browser and operating system you are using,
• the referrer URL (i.e. the site you visited before ours),
• the date and time that the web page was requested,
• the IP address of the device making the request.

For the purposes of technical security and in order to defend against attacks on our web server, we store the following data for 30 days before anonymising or deleting it:
• the browser and operating system you are using,
• the IP address of the device making the request,
• the ISP of the user,
• the date and time that the web page was requested.

We may also store your data for longer than thirty days if it is needed in order to investigate an attack on our web server or disruption. In such cases, your data will be deleted when the investigation comes to an end.

We also process data in anonymised form for statistical purposes. Your data will not be aligned with other data sets or passed on to third parties.

The legal basis for this processing is Article 6(1)(e) of the GDPR in conjunction with Section 4 of the Saxony Information Security Act and Section 3 of the Saxony Data Protection Implementation Act.

We will only attempt to identify which individual is associated with a particular IP address in the event of an illegal attack on our web server.

This website uses the Borlabs Cookie plugin. This plugin sets a technically necessary cookie (borlabs-cookie) to keep a record of your cookie consent.

The Borlabs Cookie plugin does not process any personal data.

The borlabs-cookie keeps a record of which cookies you consented to when you accessed the website. To revoke your consent, use your browser to delete the cookie. You will be asked for your consent again the next time you visit or reload the website.

The legal basis for this processing is Article 6(1)(e) of the GDPR in conjunction with Section 3 of the Saxony Data Protection Implementation Act in the context of public relations work for the provision of information on demand.

The majority of browsers automatically accept cookies by default. You can also configure your browser to reject all cookies or to delete them at the end of your session.

External links, third party content (videos)

Our website includes third party content (videos) and external links.

We have no control over the content of external websites. Therefore we cannot accept any responsibility for the content of these websites. The relevant provider or operator is always responsible for the content of linked pages. No illegal content was detected at the time that the links were placed on our website. We will remove links immediately if we are informed that they lead to illegal content.

If you watch an embedded video on our website, data will only be sent to the content provider (YouTube) with your consent. This data will include your IP address and the referrer (our website). We have no control over how the content provider collects or analyses your data. For information on the purpose and scope of the data collection activities of the content provider, as well as how it processes your data and your rights as a data subject, please refer to the privacy policy of the content provider.

We use privacy-enhanced mode for all of the YouTube videos embedded on our website. According to YouTube, privacy-enhanced mode prevents the use of views of embedded YouTube content from personalising the viewer’s browsing experience on YouTube. In addition, these views will not be used to personalise advertising shown to the viewer outside of our website. Privacy-enhanced mode also means that a YouTube cookie will not be set on your system unless you play the embedded video. Once you press play on an embedded video, YouTube can set a variety of cookies on your device and process your data for its own purposes. We have no control over this.

If you are logged in to a YouTube account, YouTube will be able to associate your browsing behaviour directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

YouTube API services are provided by YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno CA 94066, USA. The data controller is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. For more information about how user data is handled by YouTube, please refer to the YouTube Privacy Policy at: For more information about how YouTube uses cookies, please refer to Google’s Cookie Policy at

Please note that interacting with an embedded video may result in your personal data being transmitted to the USA, which is considered a third country. The majority of third countries have national laws which do not provide a level of protection for personal data which is comparable to those of EU law. Official bodies in these countries may be legally permitted to access the personal data of a data subject without their knowledge.

By agreeing to the website’s use of embedded videos, you consent to your data being transferred to a third country.

Please do not consent to your data being processed for the purpose of integrating social media platforms if you do not want your data to be transferred in this manner and processed by the content provider, particularly if you disagree with the use of cookies or other forms of local storage or tracking.
