Cookies are files that are stored on your hard drive by a website in order to automatically recognize this computer upon your next website visit and thus to adapt the use of the website to you. Some of the cookies used are deleted after the browser session ends; these are so-called session cookies.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and can decide individually whether you agree to or reject the acceptance of cookies for specific cases or in general. Please note that you may not be able to use some features of this website if cookies are disabled.

5. Services of third parties

5.1 Use of Vimeo plug-ins

We use the provider Vimeo for the integration of videos. Vimeo is operated by Vimeo, LLC, headquartered at 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011.

We use plug-ins of the provider Vimeo on some of our webpages. If you view the webpages of our website containing such a plug-in, a connection is made to the Vimeo servers and the plug-in is displayed. The Vimeo server will be informed about which of our webpages you have visited. If you are logged in as a Vimeo member, Vimeo will assign this information to your personal user account. The use of a plug-in, for example by clicking on the play button of a video, also assigns this information to your user account. You can prevent this association by logging out of your Vimeo user account before using our website and deleting the corresponding cookies from Vimeo. More details about data processing and privacy by Vimeo can be found under:

5.2 Font Awesome Web Fonts

We also use so-called Web Fonts by Font Awesome to provide you with a consistent font on our website. These are automatically stored in your browser cache upon a visit to one of our pages, in order to achieve the desired display. If your browser does not support the used Web Fonts, a standard font of your computer may be used instead. In this case, no interests of the users are affected which outweigh this technical necessity (Art. 6 I P. 1 f GDPR). You can view the privacy policy of Font Awesome here:
