Data protection declaration

Data protection

The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this privacy policy. The use of our website is usually possible without providing personal information. If personal data are collected on our pages (such as names, addresses or E-Mail addresses) the input of such data always takes place voluntarily, as far as possible. These data will under no circumstances be transferred to third parties without your express permission. We draw your attention to the fact that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) may involve security gaps. It is not possible to protect such data completely against access by third parties.

Cookies

The internet pages partly use so-called cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve the purpose of making our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your computer and are saved in your browser. Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser the next time you visit.

You can configure your browser so as to be informed about the placement of cookies, to decide to accept these on a case-by-case basis, to exclude incoming cookies for certain cases or generally and to enable the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. However, the deactivation of cookies may limit the functionality of the website.

Server-Log-Files

The provider who is hosting the pages collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request

These data can not be assigned to specific persons. The data will not be merged with any other sources. We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively, if we become aware of specific indications for illegal use.

Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the web analytics service Google Analytics. Provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

IP Anonymization
We have activated the function IP anonymization on this website. As a result, your IP address will be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened 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 activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address provided by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

This website uses the demographics feature of Google Analytics. As a result, reports can be produced that contain statements on the age, gender and interests of the site visitors.

This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of sensitive content, such as the requests you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the change of the address line of the browser from “http: //” to “https: //” and the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL encryption is enabled, the data you submit to us can not be read by third parties.
