We use so-called cookies on our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on the end device used and saved by the browser. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. There are different types of cookies that are used for different purposes. Some cookies ensure that our offers function correctly or that you are recognised on your end device after successful registration ("necessary" cookies). By placing these necessary cookies, we make it easier for you to visit our offers and use the services available there. We place other cookies to analyse user preferences and thus improve our offers ("advanced cookies"). We only place cookies that are not necessary with your consent. When you visit our offers for the first time, a pop-up is displayed ("cookie banner") in which the individual cookies are described in more detail. There you have the option to allow or reject cookies according to your preferences. There you will also find a complete list of the cookies used on our site (cookie policy). You can change your settings here at any time. We would like to point out that the functionality of this website may be limited if cookies are deactivated.

Insofar as personal data is processed when "necessary" cookies are used, this is based on Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f. DSGVO due to legitimate interests of quality assurance and a technically flawless presentation of the website. The processing of personal data when using so-called "extended cookies" is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a. DSGVO).

Plug-ins and similar technologies

On our website, we use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as "web beacons") and other technologies from the third-party providers listed below for marketing purposes and to provide our content. The "pixel tags" can be used to analyse information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user's device and may contain, among other things, technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, time of visit and other information about the use of our online offering, as well as being linked to such information from other sources.

Social media

We are represented on the following social media platforms and process user data within this framework in order to communicate with users active there or to offer information about us:

We point out that user data may be processed within social networks for market research and advertising purposes. For example, usage profiles can be created based on the usage behaviour and resulting interests of the users. The usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements within and outside the networks that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the users' computers, in which the usage behaviour and the interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, data independent of the devices used by the users may also be stored in the usage profiles (especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to them). For a detailed presentation of the respective forms of processing and the options to object (opt-out), we refer to the data protection declarations and information provided by the operators of the respective social media providers. In the case of information requests and the assertion of data subject rights, we also point out that these can be asserted most effectively with the providers. Only the providers have access to the users' data and can take appropriate measures and provide information directly. Should you still require assistance, then you can contact us.

Existence of automated decision-making

No automated decision-making or profiling takes place.

Passing on of data / third country transfers

As a matter of principle, we only pass on your data to third parties if you have consented to this or if there is another legal basis. In particular, we share your data with third parties who assist us in the visa application process or in determining the required visas. Insofar as we use third-party tools that process your data outside the EU/EEA, we ensure that the legal requirements of Art. 44 ff. DSGVO for such a third country transfer are met and that your data is processed in the third country concerned in accordance with the European data protection standard. As a rule, we use the so-called EU standard contractual clauses (SCC) for this purpose, which we conclude with the respective provider. In addition, in accordance with the requirements of the ECJ ("Schrems II"), a case-by-case risk analysis is carried out with regard to the respective third country transfer in order to ensure that your data is processed lawfully in the third country concerned and, in particular, that access to your data by state authorities is prevented.

Data processing when calling up linked content

This data protection declaration only refers to this website. However, the website may also contain external links or hyperlinks to websites of other providers. They are to be distinguished from our own content. This third-party content does not originate from us, nor do we have any influence on the content of third-party sites. If you are forwarded to other pages via links within the website, please inform yourself there about the respective handling of your data.

Storage and deletion of data

We only store your personal data for as long as it is required for the respective processing purpose and limit the storage period to the minimum necessary. Beyond this, we only store your data if we are entitled or obliged to do so in accordance with statutory retention periods (for example in accordance with the German Commercial Code (HGB) or the German Fiscal Code (AO)). 

Your rights

You have the following rights:

  • the right to information, 
  • the right to correction or deletion, 
  • the right to restrict processing, 
  • the right to data portability,
  • the right to revoke your consent with effect for the future.
  • the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(1)(e) or (f) DSGVO; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

To exercise your aforementioned rights, you can email

You also have the right to lodge a complaint about the processing of your personal data with a data protection supervisory authority.
