Collection of general information when visiting this website

Already when calling up this website, i.e. without you registering or otherwise transmitting information, the following data is automatically transmitted via your browser to the server on which this website is hosted (server log files) as part of establishing the connection:

  • Date and time of the page request,
  • the operating system you are using
  • the type of browser you are using and its version,
  • the URL from which you accessed our website,
  • the domain called up and the name of the requested file
  • input values transmitted by the requesting computer (e.g. file name),
  • access status of the web server (file transferred, file not found, etc.),
  • the IP address of the requesting computer.

This data is processed in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) of the German Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) in view of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of this website. The data collected in this respect does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about specific persons. A combination of this data with other data sources does not take place. This usage data only provides statistical information on how this website is used and serves the sole purpose of improving the content of the website. In addition, the collection of data serves to prevent unauthorized access to the web server and its improper use.


The website partly uses so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make this offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. The cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after the end of your visit. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. However, if you disable cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited. Please use the help functions of your Internet browser to find out how to change these settings individually.

Data of deceased persons

Within the scope of the information purpose pursued with this website, personal data of deceased persons are also processed and published. The General Data Protection Regulation does not apply to data of deceased persons – also insofar as you have provided us with this data (cf. recital 27 of the GDPR). A possibility to object to the use of such data and/or a claim to its deletion therefore does not exist.


Supplementary information:

Liability for content

The contents of our pages have been created with the utmost care. However, we cannot guarantee the accuracy, completeness and timeliness of the content. According to § 6 Abs.1 MDStV and § 8 Abs.1 TDG, service providers are responsible for their own content on these pages under the general laws. However, service providers are not obligated to monitor third-party information transmitted or stored by them or to investigate circumstances that indicate illegal activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information according to the general laws remain unaffected. However, liability in this regard is only possible from the time of knowledge of a concrete infringement. If we become aware of any such infringements, we will remove the relevant content immediately.

Liability for links

Our offer contains links to external websites of third parties, on whose contents we have no influence. Therefore, we cannot assume any liability for these external contents. The respective provider or operator of the pages is always responsible for the content of the linked pages. The linked pages were checked for possible legal violations at the time of linking. Illegal contents were not recognizable at the time of linking. However, a permanent control of the contents of the linked pages is not reasonable without concrete evidence of a violation of the law. If we become aware of any legal violations, we will remove such links immediately.

Data protection

As far as on our sides personal data (such as name, address or e-mail addresses) are collected, this is as far as possible on a voluntary basis. The use of the offers and services is, as far as possible, always possible without providing personal data. The use of contact data published within the framework of the imprint obligation by third parties for the purpose of sending advertising and information material not expressly requested is hereby expressly prohibited. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, for example through spam mails.


The operators of the pages endeavor to respect the copyrights of others at all times or to use their own works or works in the public domain. The contents and works created by the site operators on these pages are subject to German copyright law. Contributions of third parties are marked as such. Unless otherwise indicated, all images on our pages originate from the operators of the pages themselves or are works in the public domain. Duplication, processing, distribution, or any form of commercialization of such material beyond the scope of the copyright law shall require the prior written consent of its respective author or creator. Downloads and copies of this site or parts of this site are only allowed after explicit written permission and only for private, non-commercial use.
