Collection of general informationWhen you access our website, general information is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes the type of web browser and the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and similar information. This is exclusively information which does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person. This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the content you have requested from websites and is mandatory when using the Internet. Anonymous information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us in order to optimise our Internet presence and the technology behind it.
CookiesLike many other websites, we also use "cookies". Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. This automatically provides us with certain data such as IP address, browser used and operating system via your computer and your connection to the Internet.
Cookies cannot be used to launch programs or to transmit viruses to a computer. Based on the information contained in cookies, we can make navigation easier for you and enable the correct display of our web pages. Under no circumstances will the data we collect be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.
Registration on our websiteWhen registering to use our personalised services, some personal data is collected, such as your name, address and contact information such as telephone number and email address. If you are registered with us, you can access content and services that we only offer to registered users. Registered users also have the option of changing or deleting the data provided during registration at any time if required. Of course, we will also provide you with information about your personal data that we have stored at any time. We will be happy to correct or delete them at your request, provided that this does not breach any legal storage obligations. To contact us regarding this, please use the contact details given at the end of this data protection policy.
Provision of chargeable servicesWe will ask for additional data for the provision of chargeable services, e.g. payment details.
SSL encodingTo protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.
NewsletterWhen you register to receive our newsletter, the data you provide will be used exclusively for this purpose. Subscribers may also receive email notifications about circumstances relevant to the service or registration (e.g. changes to the newsletter offering or technical circumstances).
For valid registration we need a valid email address. In order to verify that a registration is actually being made by the owner of an email address, we use the "double opt-in" procedure. For this purpose we log the order for the newsletter, the dispatch of a confirmation email and the receipt of the requested answer. No further data will be collected. The data will be used exclusively for sending the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.
You can revoke your consent to the storage of your personal data and its use for the newsletter dispatch at any time. In each newsletter you will find a link for that purpose. In addition, you can inform us if you wish to unsubscribe using the contact option given at the end of this data protection information sheet.
Contact formIf you contact us by email or using the contact form, the information you have provided will be stored for the purpose of processing your inquiry and for possible follow-up questions.
Deletion or blocking of dataWe adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as provided for in the various storage periods stipulated by law. After the cessation of the relevant purpose or expiry of these periods, the corresponding data will be blocked or deleted as a matter of routine and in accordance with the statutory regulations.
Use of Google AnalyticsThis website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (hereinafter: Google). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users are using the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymisation on these websites, your IP address will previously be abbreviated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement of the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide the website operator with further services associated with website use and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.
In addition or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can prevent tracking by Google Analytics on our pages by clicking this link:Link. Dabei wird ein Opt-Out-Cookie auf Ihrem Gerät installiert. An opt-out cookie will then be installed on your device. This will prevent Google Analytics from collecting data for this website and for this browser in future as long as the cookie remains installed in your browser.
Use of scriptlibraries (Google Webfonts)In order to present our content correctly and in a graphically appealing manner across all browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google Web Fonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/) on this website. Google Web Fonts are transferred to your browser's cache to avoid multiple loading. If your browser does not support Google Web Fonts or does not allow access, content will be displayed in a default font.
Use of Google MapsThis website uses Google Maps API to display geographical information visually. With the use of Google Maps, Google also collects, processes and uses data about the use of map functions by visitors.You can find more information about Google's data processing in the Google-Privacy. There you can also change your personal data protection settings in the Data Protection centre. Detailed instructions for managing your own data in connection with Google products can be found here.
Social media plug-insSocial media plug-ins from the providers listed below are used on our websites. You can recognise the plug-ins by the fact that they are marked with the corresponding logo. These plug-ins may be used to send information, which may include personal data, to the service provider and may then be used by it. We prevent the unconscious and unwanted collection and transmission of data to the service provider through a 2-click solution. To activate a desired social plug-in, it must first be activated by clicking on the corresponding button. Only this activation of the plug-in triggers the collection of information and its transmission to the service provider. We do not collect any personal data ourselves by using the social media plug-ins or about their use. We have no influence on what data an activated plug-in collects and how it is used by the provider. At present, it must be assumed that a direct connection to the provider's services will be established and that at least the IP address and device-related information will be recorded and used. It is also possible that the service providers will try to save cookies on the computer used. Reference is made to the data protection information sheet of the respective service provider to find out which specific data is collected and how it is used. Note: If you are currently logged in to Facebook, Facebook can identify you as a visitor to a specific page.
We have integrated the social media buttons of the following companies on our website:
Facebook Inc. (1601 S. California Ave - Palo Alto - CA 94304 - USA)
Twitter Inc. (795 Folsom St. - Suite 600 - San Francisco - CA 94107 - USA)
Google Plus/Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway - Mountain View - CA 94043 - USA)
Use of Google RemarketingThis website uses the remarketing function of Google Inc. to present interest-based advertisements to website visitors within the Google advertising network. A "cookie" is stored in the visitor's browser, which makes it possible to recognise the visitor when he visits websites that belong to Google's advertising network. These pages may contain advertisements that refer to content that the visitor has previously viewed on websites that use Google's remarketing feature.
