Data protection

The providers of this website take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We handle your personal data in strict confidence and in accordance with data protection laws as well as this privacy policy.

It is possible to use our website without entering any personal data. Should any personal data be gathered (e.g. name, address, email address) this is consistently on a voluntary basis as far as possible. This data will not be shared with a third party without your explicit permission.

We would like to indicate that the transfer of information on the internet (e.g. via email communication) can give rise to security gaps. As such it is not always possible to protect data from access by third parties.

Cookies

This website uses so-called cookies in some sections. Cookies do not damage your computer, nor do they contain viruses. The purpose of cookies is to make our pages more user friendly, safer and more effective. Cookies are small text files placed on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies used by us will be deleted from your hard disk after termination of the browser session (so-called session cookies). Other cookies will remain on your device until you delete them. These enable us to recognise your browser the next time you visit our site.

You can adjust your browser settings so that you are informed about the implementation of cookies and only allow them on an individual basis, allow them in certain cases or blanket reject them and set up automatic cookie deletion each time you close your browser. Deactivating cookies may limit the functionality of this website.

Server log files

The provider of this site automatically gathers and saves information in so-called server log files, which are automatically transmitted to us from your browser. These are:

  • Browser type/version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server inquiry

This data is not attributable to particular individuals. Nor is this data combined with that from other sources. We reserve the right to check this data retroactively should we have good reason to suspect unlawful use.

Should you wish to subscribe to a newsletter from us, we require your email address as well as information which permits us to ensure you are the rightful owner of the provided email address and agree to receive said newsletter. No other data is gathered. We use this data exclusively for the purposes of sending you the requested information and will not pass it on to third parties.

Privacy policy regarding the use of Google Analytics

This website uses the functions of Google Analytics, a web analytics service. This is provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses so-called ‘cookies’. These are text files which are stored on your computer to enable an analysis as to how visitors use the site. The information collected by the cookies about your use of the website will generally be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there.

Read more information about how Google Analytics deals with user data in the Google privacy policy: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en

Browser plug-in

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, in doing so, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. Furthermore, you can prevent the compilation of data (including your IP address) through cookies and website use by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available through the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

Data processing

We have signed a contract with Google regarding the processing of data and fully implement the strict guidelines in our use of Google Analytics as stipulated by the German data protection authorities.

IP anonymisation

We employ the function “activate IP anonymisation” on this website. As such Google will shorten your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other countries that are party to the European Economic Area Agreement. Only in exceptional cases will a full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and then shortened. Google will use this information on behalf of the website operators for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and for providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google will not associate your IP address as gathered via Google Analytics with any other data held by Google.

See more information about Google’s use of data for marketing purposes, possibilities for setting and appeal on Google’s website:

Disallow Google Analytics to track me
to stop Google Analytics from gathering your data on this site in the future (the opt-out only works in this browser and on this domain). An opt-out cookie will thereby be deposited in your device. Should you delete your cookies for this browser you will need to re-click this link.

Privacy policy regarding the use of Facebook plug-ins (like button)

Our website integrates plug-ins by the social network Facebook, provided by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA. These can be recognised on our site by the Facebook logo or “like button”. You can find an overview about Facebook plug-ins here: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

When you visit our website a direct link is established between your browser and the Facebook server via the plug-in. Facebook then receives the information that you visited our site with your IP address. Should you click the “like button” while logged into your Facebook account you can link the content on our site with your profile. In this manner Facebook can identify your visit to our site with your user account. As the website provider, we have no information about the transmitted data, nor do we receive information about their use from Facebook. You can find out more in Facebook’s privacy policy at https://www.facebook.com/policy.php.

By using Twitter and the “retweet” function, the visited website and your Twitter account will be linked and made known to other users. In this manner data will also be transmitted to Twitter. As the website provider, we have no information about the transmitted data, nor do we receive information about their use from Twitter. You can find out more in Twitter’s privacy policy at http://twitter.com/privacy.
