This means that the user’s IP address is shortened by Google within the member states of the European Union and countries which are contracting parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, whereby a connection to an individual person can be excluded. Google Inc. with seat in the United States is certified for purposes of the US-European data protection convention “Privacy Shield”, which ensures compliance with the standard of data protection applicable within the European Union. The data processing is done pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f of the GDPR or Sec. 15 para. 3 of the Telemedia Act on the basis of our legitimate interest to statistically analyze users’ activities for the purpose of optimization and marketing.

Use of local web fonts

We use script libraries and font libraries (no google web fonts) on this website to present our contents correctly and graphically appealing across all browsers.

Web fonts are transferred to your browser's cache to avoid multiple loading. If the browser does not support web fonts or does not allow access, content is displayed in a default font.

Calling script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library operator when reloading fonts. In theory, it is possible - but currently also unclear whether and, if so, for what purposes - that operators of corresponding libraries collect data. The web fonts used on this website are hosted locally only and loaded from our web server, which prevents a data connection to the service provider.
