Scope of applicability

With this data protection declaration, users receive information about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of their data by the responsible provider.

The legal framework for data protection is defined by the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).

Collection of general information

When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and similar information. This is solely information which does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about you personally. This information is technologically necessary in order to correctly deliver the content you have requested from websites and is mandatory when using the Internet. Anonymous information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us in order to optimize our Internet presence and the technology behind it.

SSL encoding

To protect the security of your data during the data transfer, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.

Contact form

If you contact us via e-mail or our contact form, the information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing your inquiry and for possible follow-up questions.

Removal or blocking of data

We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and minimization. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as stipulated in the various storage periods provided for by law. After the respective purpose or expiry of these periods, the corresponding data will be blocked or deleted as a matter of routine and in accordance with statutory regulations.

Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (following: Google). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymisation on these websites, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA 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 activities and to provide the website operator with further services associated with website use and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of these Google services will not be merged with other Google data.

You may block the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting and processing the data generated by the cookie relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the corresponding browser plug-in available.

Use of Google AdWords

Our website uses Google Conversion Tracking. If you have reached our website via an ad placed by Google, Google Adwords sets a cookie on your computer. The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ad served by Google. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can see that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be traced through the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have selected conversion tracking. Customers see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information with which users can be personally identified. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can refuse the setting of a cookie required for this - for example via browser settings that generally deactivate the automatic setting of cookies or set your browser so that cookies are blocked by the "googleleadservices.com" domain.

Please note that you may not delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not wish measurement data to be recorded. If you have deleted all your cookies in your browser, you must set the respective opt-out cookie again.

This website uses Google AdSense. This is a service of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, for the integration of advertisements. Google AdSense uses cookies. The storage of these files allow Google to analyse the data of your use of our website on your PC. Google AdSense also uses web beacons, invisible graphics which enable Google to analyze clicks on this website, the traffic on this website and similar information.

The information received via cookies and web beacons, your IP address and the delivery of advertising formats are transmitted to a Google server located in the USA and stored there. Google may disclose this collected information to third parties, if required to do so by law or if Google instructs third parties to do so. However, Google will merge your IP address together with the other stored data.

By setting your Internet browser accordingly, you can prevent these cookies from being stored on your PC. However, this may mean that the content of this website may no longer be used to the same extent.

Embedded YouTube videos

On some of our websites we embed YouTube videos. YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA is the operator of the corresponding plug-ins. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection to Youtube servers is established. Youtube will be informed which pages you visit. If you are logged into your Youtube account, Youtube can attribute your surfing behavior to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.

If a YouTube video is started, the provider uses cookies which collect information about user behavior.

If you have deactivated the storage of cookies for the Google Ad program, you will not have to expect such cookies when viewing YouTube videos. Youtube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you must block the saving of cookies in your browser.
