If you do not agree to this, you can inform us at any time and we’ll block or delete your personal data accordingly.

Automatically collected, non-personal data and active content

Automatically (i. e. not via registration) generated information is collected when accessing our webpages (e. g. via an Internet browser or an operating system; domain names of web pages from which access is made via a web link; number of visits; average time spent on the site; pages accessed). This data cannot be traced back to a certain person. We use this information to improve and update the appearance of our website and thus to increase its attractiveness.

If you leave our site via a link (provided by us or not) and thus access other sites, it is possible that the addresses of the target page clicked on may also set cookies. We are not legally responsible for these cookies.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies” – text files placed on your computer – to help the website analyze how users utilize the site. The information generated by these cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

However, if you opt-in to IP anonymization on this website, your Google IP address will be truncated from time to time within Member States of the European Union or other signatory states to the EEA Agreement. The full IP address is only in exceptional cases transferred 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 activity and to provide the website operator with further services associated with website and internet use.

The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. You may refuse 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 this website to its full functionality. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

Facebook Plugins

Our website uses social plugins (“plugins”) of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins are recognizable by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on blue tile or a “thumb up” sign) or are marked with the addition “Facebook Social Plugin”.

When you visit a page on our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook’s servers. The content of the plugin is sent directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated into the website. We therefore have no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and will inform you according to our knowledge:

By including the plugins, Facebook receives the information that you have called up the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can associate your visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the Like button or by posting a comment, your browser will send the corresponding information directly to Facebook and save it there. If you’re not a Facebook member, there’s still a chance that Facebook will find out and store your IP address.

For the purpose and scope of data collection and further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as your rights and options for privacy protection, please refer to Facebook’s Privacy Notice at http://www.facebook.com/policy.php.

Should you wish to contact us by email, we would like to point out that the confidentiality of the transmitted information cannot be completely guaranteed with this communication method.
