The person responsible within the meaning of the data protection laws, in particular the EU Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), is: Prof. Dr. Stefan Sorg

Your rights as a data subject

You can exercise the following rights at any time by contacting our data protection officer: Information about your data stored with us and their processing (Art. 15 DSGVO), Correcting incorrect personal data (Art. 16 DPA), Deletion of your data stored with us (Art. 17 DSGVO), Restriction of data processing, provided that we are not yet allowed to delete your data due to legal obligations (Art. 18 DSGVO),

Objection to the processing of your data by us (Art. 21 DSGVO) and data transferability, provided you have consented to the processing of your data or have concluded a contract with us (Art. 20 DSGVO). If you have given us your consent, you can revoke it at any time with effect for the future.
You may at any time submit a complaint to a supervisory authority, e.g. to the competent supervisory authority of your state of residence or to the authority responsible for us as the responsible body.
A list of the supervisory authorities (for the non-public area) with their addresses can be found at: DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.

Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts)
Nature and purpose of the processing:
In order to display our content correctly and in a graphically appealing manner across browsers, we use “Google Web Fonts” from Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter “Google”) on this website to display fonts.
The privacy policy of the library operator Google can be found here: Legal basis:
The legal basis for the integration of Google Web Fonts and the associated data transfer to Google is your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO).

The call of script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library operator. It is theoretically possible – although currently it is also unclear whether and for what purposes – that the operator collects data from Google in this case.

Storage duration:
We do not collect any personal data through the integration of Google Webfonts.
For more information about Google Web Fonts, please visit and Google’s privacy policy:

Third country transfer:
Google processes your data in the USA and is subject to the EU_US Privacy Shield https://www.privacyshield. gov/EU-US framework.

Provision which is mandatory or necessary:
The provision of personal data is not required by law or contract. However, it may not be possible to display the contents correctly using standard fonts.
Revocation of consent:
The JavaScript programming language is regularly used to display the content. You can therefore object to the data processing by deactivating the execution of JavaScript in your browser or by installing a JavaScript blocker. Please note that this may result in functional restrictions on the website.

SSL Encryption
To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption procedures (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.

Changes to our privacy policy
We reserve the right to adapt this data protection declaration so that it always meets the current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services. The new privacy policy will then apply to your new visit.

Questions to the Data Protection Officer
If you have any questions about data protection, please send us an e-mail or contact the person responsible for data protection in our organization directly:
