This information is only stored by OOTB for the duration of the website visit; it is only evaluated for statistical purposes, whereby the individual user remains anonymous. 

In order to enable you to make better use of our website, we use the small text files known as "cookies" to track user preferences and to be able to design our website accordingly. Cookies are now routinely used by most websites. However, if you are concerned about this, you can also set your browser so that it does not accept cookies.

Such an entry can be made, for example, if you send us an e-mail using the electronic addresses indicated under "Contacts". Such information will be used by us exclusively for the relevant purpose and in compliance with the applicable legal provisions; any further use will only be made with your consent. 

OOTB does not disclose any personal data to third parties, unless this is permitted by law or is expressly requested by the person concerned. We are aware of the value of your personal information. We therefore take all legally prescribed measures to protect the personal data entrusted to us. 

When processing personal data, we naturally observe the applicable legal provisions, in particular the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG).

Use of Google Analytics.

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. "("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will reduce your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other countries party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link (

We would like to point out that the code "gat._anonymizeIp();" has been added to Google Analytics on this website to ensure anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). 

Use of Facebook Social Plugins.

This website uses social plugins of the social network "Face-book", which is operated by Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook") ("Facebook Plugins"). The face-book plugins are identified by one of the Facebook logos (white "f" on a blue background or a "thumbs up" sign) or in a similar way (a list and the appearance of the Facebook plugins can be found here). 

When you access content on our website that contains such a Facebook plug-in, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the Facebook plugin is transmitted directly from Face-book to your browser and integrated into the website. We therefore have no control over the amount of data Facebook collects using the Facebook plugin; Facebook has published its own information on this: Facebook then receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding content of our website by integrating Facebook plug-ins. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign your visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the Facebook plugins, for example by pressing the "Like" button or making a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook and stored there. If you are not a member of Facebook, it is still possible for Facebook to obtain and store your IP address. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in the Facebook data protection information. 

If you are a member of Facebook and do not want Facebook to collect data about you via our website and link it to your data stored on Facebook, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website. It is also possible to block Facebook social plugins with add-ons for your browser, for example with the "Facebook Blocker".


You have the right to receive information on any personal data stored by us free of charge upon request. You also have the right to correct, block or delete this data. Please send an e-mail to
