Using our website is usually possible without providing personal information. Provided that personal data should be required, your information is voluntary. We collect personal information in accordance with the legal provisions of the Telemedia Act (TMG) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). We will not disclose your data to third parties or use them for promotional purposes without your consent.
We point out that data transmission over the internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) may have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties cannot be guaranteed. The use of published contact data by third parties for sending unsolicited advertising and information materials is expressly prohibited. In the case of the unsolicited sending of advertising or spam, we reserve the right to take legal action.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, i.e. text files that are stored on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use this website. The information generated by the cookies about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. In the case of activation of the IP anonymization on this website, your IP address will be truncated within Member States of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The complete IP address is only transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website and to compile reports on website activity and other services related with the website and internet. The IP address that is transmitted from your browser in line with Google Analytics is not associated with any other data held by Google. Also, by downloading and installing the plugin you will find at tools.google.com, you can prevent the recording of the data on your website use (including your IP address) created by the cookie and that it be transferred and processed by Google.
We would also like to point out that on this website, the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” is being used in addition to Google Analytics to provide an anonymous collection of IP addresses (called IP masking).
We also use Google Analytics to analyze data from AdWords and the Double-Click cookie for statistical purposes. If you do not want this, you can disable this via the Ads Preferences Manager.
Use of Social Plugins
We use various “social plugins” on our website, e.g. for Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus to give visitors of our website the opportunity to communicate with and about us and to optimize our website. These plugins are represented as graphs and are clearly visible through the respective logos or letterings of the provider. When you visit our website these plugins build up a direct connection to the servers of these companies. The content of the plugins communicate this directly with your browser, and transfer data, such as your IP address and device-related data to the service provider of the social network. Therefore, we have no control over what and how data is collected and passed on. By clicking those graphics you share content of our website on the respective social network with other users. It is possible that through sharing our website and / or its content corresponding data may be sent to the respective companies that could possibly save it.
Even without clicking directly, it is possible that data such as your IP address will be stored if you are logged into a social network while visiting our website. To prevent this, please log out from the respective services before visiting our website. For the exact scope of data collection, please contact the company in question directly. The respective browser providers offer a range of add-ons that can prevent data collection.
Because of the large number of companies, plugins, addo-ns and browsers, it is not possible for us to provide a complete overview of addresses, contact details and types of programs here. If you have any questions, please contact us. You will find our details at the top of this page.
For questions about our website, you are welcome to contact us at any time. We will gladly send you further information about our services.
