Data protection

Insofar as the website allows the entry of personal or business data (email addresses, names and addresses), this data is provided by users on a voluntary basis only.


We use cookies on the website. Cookies are data packages sent from an internet server to a browser which is saved locally on your computer to recognise it again later. Your computer sends cookies information during later, subsequent visits to this website with every request to the server again. The cookies are used to present complex and dynamic content and to recognize you during subsequent visits and for enhanced user friendliness. By changing your browser settings, you can stop cookies from installing at any time or have a warning displayed before a cookie is saved. You can then decide whether to allow the cookie. Our website can be used without accepting cookies. However, certain areas may not function properly, if you reject the cookies.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics makes it possible to allocate dates, sessions and interactions across several devices to one pseudonymous user ID and therefore analyse the activities of a user on several devices.

Google Analytics also uses cookies (see above description). The information about your use of our website generated by cookies (such as web browser and version used, operating system of the user, domain name of the Internet provider of the user, referrer URL, abbreviated IP address) is generally transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there.

We only use Google Analytics with IP anonymisation enabled. This means that Google truncates the IP address within member states of the European Union and other contractual states of the treaty of the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Therefore, ACOLIN is no longer able to match the address to a Person.

Google uses the information on our behalf to anonymously evaluate your use of the website, compile reports about website activities and provide further services associated with the use of the website and the Internet in general to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser for Google Analytics is not linked with other data provided by Google.

If you object to this, you can prevent your data from being collected through cookies and regarding your personal website use (incl. IP address) by Google and stop Google from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: Browser add-on for deactivating Google Analytics:

You may prevent cookies from being stored by changing the settings in your browser software. However, we would like to inform you that in this case, you will not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 Para. 1 (f) GDPR and Art. 13 Para. 2 FADP as we rely on the information collected (in anonymous form) for the purposes of improvement. The collected data are deleted automatically after 14 months. More information about the terms of use and data protection is available at or at

Legal validity of this disclaimer

Insofar as parts or individual wordings of this text do not, no longer or do not fully comply with the legal situation, the content and validity of the remaining sections of the document shall remain unaffected and the void portion shall be interpreted by the contracting partners such that the purpose that was originally intended by the void wording can continue to exist as far as possible.
