This website uses the services of MailChimp for sending newsletters. Provider is the Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave. NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.

MailChimp is a service that helps to organize and analyze the dispatch of newsletters. If you enter data for the purposes of newsletter subscription (e-mail address, for example), it will be stored on MailChimp’s servers in the United States.

MailChimp is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield. The Privacy Shield is an agreement between the European Union (EU) and the US to ensure compliance with European privacy standards in the United States.

With the help of MailChimp we can analyze our newsletter campaigns. When you open an e-mail sent by MailChimp, a file included in the e-mail (called web-beacon) connects to MailChimp’s servers in the United States. This will determine if a newsletter message has been opened and which links may have been clicked. In addition, technical information is collected (e.g., time of retrieval, IP address, browser type, and operating system). This information can not be assigned to the respective newsletter recipient. They serve exclusively for the statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyzes can be used to better tailor future newsletters to the interests of the recipients.

If you do not want to be analyzed by MailChimp you have to unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this we provide in each newsletter message a corresponding link. Furthermore, you can unsubscribe from the newsletter directly on the website.

The data processing takes place on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 (1) lit. DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. The legality of the already completed data processing operations remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data deposited with us for the purpose of subscribing to the Newsletter will be stored by us from the newsletter until the time of your submission and will be deleted from our servers as well as from the servers of MailChimp after cancellation of the newsletter. Data that has been stored for other purposes with us (such as e-mail addresses for the members area) remain unaffected.

Completion of a data processing agreement

We have a so-called “Data Processing Agreement” with MailChimp, in which we commit MailChimp to protect the data of our customers and not to pass them on to third parties. This contract can be viewed at the following link:

Communication or usage-related information

Automatically collected non-personal data

Occasionally, when you access our web sites, information is collected automatically (not through registration) that is not associated with a specific person (such as the Internet browser and operating system used, domain name of the website you came from, number of visits average dwell time, pages accessed). We use this information to determine the attractiveness of our websites and to improve their performance and content.

Google fonts

We use Google Fonts from Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) on our website.

You do not need to sign in or have a password to use Google fonts. Furthermore, no cookies are stored in your browser. The files (CSS, fonts) are requested through the Google domains and According to Google, the requests for CSS and fonts are completely separate from all other Google services. If you have a Google Account, you do not need to worry about your Google Account information being sent to Google while using Google Fonts. Google records the use of CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) and the fonts used and stores this data securely. As the data storage looks exactly, we will look at the details.

What are Google fonts?

Google Fonts (formerly Google Web Fonts) is an interactive directory of over 800 fonts that Google LLC provides for free use.

Many of these fonts are published under the SIL Open Font License, while others have been released under the Apache license. Both are free software licenses. Thus, we can use them freely without paying royalties.

Why do we use Google fonts on our website?

With Google Fonts we can use fonts on our own website and do not have to upload them on our own server. Google Fonts is an important building block to keep the quality of our website high. All Google fonts are automatically optimized for the Web, and this saves data volume and is a great advantage especially for mobile device use. When you visit our page, the low file size ensures fast loading time. Furthermore, Google fonts are so-called secure web fonts. Different image synthesis systems (rendering) in different browsers, operating systems and mobile devices can lead to errors. Such errors can partially distort texts or entire websites visually. Thanks to the fast Content Delivery Network (CDN), there are no cross-platform issues with Google Fonts. Google Fonts supports all major browsers (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera) and works reliably on most modern mobile operating systems, including Android 2.2+ and iOS 4.2+ (iPhone, iPad, iPod).

So we use the Google fonts to make our entire online service as beautiful and consistent as possible. According to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. F DSGVO already constitutes a “legitimate interest” in the processing of personal data. In this case, “legitimate interest” means legal as well as economic or non-material interests that are recognized by the legal system.

What data is stored by Google?

When you visit our website, the fonts will be reloaded via a Google server. This external call sends data to the Google servers. Google also recognizes that you or your IP address is visiting our website. The Google Fonts API is designed to reduce the collection, storage and use of end-user data to what is needed for efficient font delivery. Incidentally, API stands for “Application Programming Interface” and serves, among other things, as a data transmitter in the software area.

Google Fonts securely stores CSS and font requests on Google and is thus protected. Through the collected usage figures, Google can determine the popularity of the fonts. Google publishes the results on internal analysis pages, such as Google Analytics. In addition, Google also uses data from its own web crawler to determine which websites use Google fonts. This data is published in Google Fonts’ BigQuery database. BigQuery is a Google web service for companies that want to move and analyze large amounts of data.

It should be kept in mind, however, that any Google Font request will also automatically transfer information such as IP address, language settings, browser screen resolution, browser version, and browser name to the Google servers. Whether this data is also stored, is not clear or is not clearly communicated by Google.

How long and where is the data stored?

For a day, Google stores requests for CSS assets on its servers, which are mainly located outside the EU. This allows us to leverage the fonts using a Google style sheet. A style sheet is a style that allows you to quickly and easily find out, for example, a style sheet. can change the design or font of a web page.

The font files are stored at Google for one year. Google is pursuing the goal of generally improving the load time of websites. If millions of web pages refer to the same fonts, they will be cached after the first visit and immediately appear on all other later visited web pages. Sometimes Google updates font files to reduce file size, increase language coverage, and improve design.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

Data that Google stores for a day or a year can not simply be deleted. The data is automatically transmitted to Google when the page is viewed. To prematurely delete this information, you must contact Google Support at In this case, you prevent data storage only if you do not visit our site.

Unlike other web fonts, Google allows us unrestricted access to all fonts. So we can access unlimited fonts and get the most out of our website. More about Google Fonts and other questions can be found at Although Google addresses privacy issues, it does not include detailed information about data storage. It is relatively difficult (almost impossible) for Google to get really accurate information about stored data.
