The use of our website is usually possible without providing personal information. So far as we collect personal data (for example name, address or e-mail addresses), this takes place, as far as possible, always on a voluntary basis. These data will not be transmitted to third parties without your explicit consent.
Please note that data transmission over the Internet (for example, when communicating via e-mail) may have security issues. A complete protection of the data from access by third parties is not possible.
Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in the so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- Browser type and browser version
- Used operating system
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
These data cannot be assigned to specific persons. A merging of this data with other data sources will not be done. We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively, if we become aware of specific indications of illegal use.
If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored in order to process the request and in case of follow-up questions. We will not share this information without your consent.
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 the so-called “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of your use of the website. 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.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by an appropriate setting of your browser software; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use all the features of this website to the fullest extent possible. In addition, you can prevent the collection by Google of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

Contract data processing
We have entered into a contract data processing agreement with Google and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
We use the “activation of IP anonymization” function on this website. As a result, your IP address will be truncated by Google beforehand within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. 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 transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
Demographics feature in Google Analytics
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 data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and third-party visitor data. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can disable this feature at any time through the ad settings in your Google Account, or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as outlined in the section “Objection to Data Collection”.
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 recognise an encrypted connection when the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and the padlock icon appears in your browser line.
If SSL encryption is enabled, the data you submit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Right to information, cancellation, blocking
You always have the right to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and destination and the purpose of the data processing and the right to correct, block or delete this data. For further information on personal data you can contact us at any time at the address given in the company information.
