Data Protection

Our website can generally be used without the need to enter personal information. If we do collect personal data (such as name, address or e-mail address), this is done as far as possible on a voluntary basis. This data is not passed to third parties without your express agreement. Please be aware that data transmission via the Internet (e.g. e-mail communications) may be at risk of security breaches. It is not possible to protect data fully from unauthorized access by third parties. The use of the contact data published within the website details by third parties for sending unsolicited advertising and information materials is hereby expressly excluded. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited advertising being sent, for example in the form of spam e-mails.

Data privacy declaration for the use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-termed “cookies”, which are text files that are downloaded onto your computer to enable analysis of how you use our site. The information collected by the cookie on your use of this website is as a rule transmitted to a Google server in the US and stored there. In the event, however, that we have enabled the IP anonymization on this website, your IP address, if it is within a Member State of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, will first be truncated by Google before being sent on.

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On the 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 other linked services connected to the website activity and Internet use. The IP address communicated within the framework of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data held by Google.

You may reject the use of cookies via the appropriate setting on your browser; we point out, however, that if you do, you will not be able fully to use all the features of this site. You can also prevent Google from collecting the site-usage data generated via the cookie (including your IP address) and from processing the data by downloading and installing a browser plugin available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
