Our website can in general be used without entering personal data. If any personal data (e.g. name, address, or e-mail address) is collected on our website pages, this is always on a voluntary basis wherever possible. This data is not passed on to third parties without your explicit consent.
Please note that data transfers on the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can be subject to security vulnerabilities. Absolute protection of data from access by third parties is not possible.
We expressly prohibit third parties from using the contact information that German law obliges us to publish in our legal notice in order to send promotional or informative material that we have not explicitly requested. The operators of this website expressly reserve the right to take legal action against parties who send unsolicited promotional material e.g. via spam mails.
In order to provide you with the best possible service, we use Google Analytics on our websites. In this regard, we would like to make you aware that our website uses Google Analytics, a Web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies” (text files that are saved on your computer and that allow analysis of your use of the website). The information generated by the cookies about your use of this website (including your IP address) is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports about website activity for the website operators, and to provide additional services connected with use of the website and the Internet. Google may also communicate this information to a third party if this is required by law or if the third party is processing this data on behalf of Google. Google will on no account link your IP address with other Google data. You can prevent the installation of the cookies using the corresponding setting in your browser software; however, we would point out that in this case, you may not have full use of all of the functions of this website. You may veto the collection and storage of this data at any time with future effect. In view of the discussion about the use of analysis tools along with complete IP addresses, we would like to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the “_anonymizeIp()” extension; therefore, further processing takes place with the shortened form of the IP addresses only, in order to prevent them from being linked with an individual. By using this website, you declare that you consent to the processing of the data collected about you by Google in the ways described and for the purposes specified.
