Use of cookies and DOM storage

Our website partly uses so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies are used to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard disk by your browser and can be read during a subsequent visit.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit our website.

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. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.

Necessary cookies and DOM storage

Brute force protection

Our website is based on the WordPress content management system. WordPress provides an administrative area that can be used to edit the content of the website. Access to this area is only possible for editors and administrators of this website. This access is monitored and logged by the WordPress plugin “Solid Security”, for example in the event of incorrect logins or attempts to find out access data through frequent password testing (“brute force attack”). Access attempts to the administrative area are stored in our database together with the IP address for 7 days and then deleted. In the event of several unlawful access attempts, the IP will be stored and blocked beyond this period. There is a legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR in the collection and processing of the IP address by “Solid Security”, because this protects this site from technical attacks and unauthorized access attempts. This ensures the security of the entire website and the stability of our server, and any personal data processed elsewhere remains protected. The IP addresses used for the check are only used by “Solid Security” for this purpose. Brute force protection only applies to the administrative area of our website and therefore does not affect the use of our website outside the protected area.


We manage our website with the help of the ManageWP tool. The provider is GoDaddy.com WP Europe, Trg republike 5, 11000 Belgrade, Serbia. With ManageWP, we can monitor the security and performance of our website and create automatic backups, among other things. ManageWP therefore has access to the content of the website, including our databases. ManageWP is hosted on the provider’s servers. There is no tracking. The use of ManageWP is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the most effective and secure operation of its website.

4. Analysis tools


In order to optimize the website with regard to the needs of users and to document the frequency of use, we analyze the usage behavior of visitors to our website (e.g. which content is particularly popular? Which is not?). We use the data-saving web analysis tool Matomo for this purpose.

Matomo does not use cookies, the recognition of returning users is done with the help of a so-called “digital fingerprint”, which is stored anonymously and changed every 24 hours.

With the “digital fingerprint”, user movements within our online offer are recorded with the help of pseudonymized IP addresses in combination with user-side browser settings in such a way that it is not possible to draw conclusions about the identity of individual users.

The data collected as part of the use of Matomo will not be passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to do so.

The legal basis for the processing is our legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR) and the obligation to render account to our funding body (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c).

I-Frame ordering process

We use a corresponding platform to ensure a smooth ordering process and the data protection-compliant processing of the required data.

We have integrated the order form via a so-called I-Frame. As part of the ordering process, you will be redirected to the platform. The platform is operated on our behalf by SH:24, based in the UK. We have concluded an order processing agreement with the company in order to protect your personal data.
The legal basis for processing is contract fulfillment and pre-contractual inquiries (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b GDPR); Legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR)


In the context of contractual and other legal relationships, due to legal obligations or otherwise on the basis of our legitimate interests, we offer an efficient and secure payment option with Stripe.

The data processed by Stripe includes inventory data, such as the name and address, bank data, such as account numbers or credit card numbers, passwords, TANs and checksums, as well as contract, total and recipient-related information. The information is required to carry out the transactions.

The legal basis for processing is contract fulfillment and pre-contractual inquiries (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b GDPR); Legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR).

The data entered will only be processed by the payment service provider and stored by them. We do not receive this information. In such cases, we only receive information for confirmation or negative information about the payment. Under certain circumstances, the data may be transmitted by the payment service provider to credit agencies for identity and creditworthiness checks. Stripe’s terms and conditions and privacy policy apply. These can be found on the website: https://stripe.com.
