In addition to the access data mentioned above, we only store personal data if you voluntarily send it to us. Furthermore, personal data is only used to the extent that is necessary and only for the purpose that is approved by you and/or is permissible by law.
All data is stored exclusively on the specially protected servers of Arago AG in Germany.

Use of Cookies


Some of our pages may use cookies or other technologies installed by us. These enable us to support you more effectively, should you return to our website. However, you do have the option of setting your browser to inform you whenever you receive a cookie, so that you can refuse receipt, should you so wish. You can also set your browser to refuse all cookies on principle. This can, however, lead to some pages no longer functioning correctly.


“Social Plugins”


As part of digital services, in some circumstances so-called social plugins are used by various social networks, such as Facebook, Google+ and Twitter. These functions enable you to share individual items of content with your friends in the relevant social networks and/or recommend this content.


Use of these social plugins, for example through the Facebook “Like” button, the Google+ button or Twitter, at the same time enables the social network in question to gather data relating to the individual as outlined below.


When you click to view a particular digital offering into which a social plugin is integrated, the social network immediately creates a direct connection to your browser. This means the social network gets notification that you visited this website and the information includes your IP address/device ID, amongst other things. This happens regardless of whether you are currently logged into the social network or whether you are registered at all.


When you are logged into the relevant social network at the same time, it automatically allocates your viewing of the website to your profile. When you activate the relevant social plugins too and recommend articles and content, for example, the social network can allocate this information to your profile. If you don’t want the social network to allocate your visit to our website to your specific user account, then you should log out of the relevant network while making use of our digital offering.


We would like to inform you that the data gathered in connection with the social plugins is exchanged exclusively between your browser and the operator of the social network. We have no knowledge of the content of the data gathered and transferred. Against this background, we recommend that you read the relevant current data protection notices for each of the abovementioned operators of social networks.


Our digital services includes, among other things, the so-called “Like” button from Facebook Ireland Limited, Hanover Reach, 5-7 Hanover Quay, Dublin 2 Ireland. Facebook’s data protection guidelines can be found at


The Google+ Button is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The relevant data protection declaration for this can be found at


Last but not least, you can also use the Twitter service from Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, whose data protection declaration can be found at
