Data privacy statement

FOR VISITORS OF OUR HOMEPAGE

The operator of our homepage takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat all data which are related to your person as strictly confidential and in accordance both with the data protection legislation as well as with this data protection statement.

When visiting our website, you are usually not requested to provide any of your personal data. However, in case there is actually any personal data elicitation (e.g. name, address or email address), this information is provided by you – if possible – always on a voluntary basis.

We have to point out that any data transfer on the internet (e.g. by email communication) can be exposed to security gaps. It is impossible to guarantee for a gapless protection of your data against third parties.

Regarding adherence to the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) or other legislation regarding data protection or having a similar protective character, which are valid in other countries of the European Union, the responsibility is born by:

Cookies

Sometimes internet pages are using so-called cookies. These cookies do not affect your computer and they are not infected with viruses. Cookies allow us to develop an even more user-friendly, more effective and safer service for you. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your pc and which are memorized by your browser.

Most of our used cookies are so-called “session-cookies”, i.e. they are deleted automatically after leaving our homepage. Other cookies are stored on your PC until you actively delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser when visiting our homepage again.

You can adjust your browser in a way that you are informed automatically when a cookie is going to be stored on your PC. You can allow such a storage for single cases, for specified cases or you can exclude them generally and activate an automatic deletion of the cookies when closing your browser. Such a deactivation of cookies, however, can limit the functionality of this website.

SSL encryption

In order to ensure protection of your data during transfer, we use an encryption procedure which is state of the art (e.g. SSL) via https.

Newsletter

Based on your explicit agreement, we transmit a regular newsletter or similar information to your stated email address.

For the receipt of this newsletter, you need to state your email address only. When signing up for this newsletter, your stated data are used for this purpose only. Subscribers can also receive information by email on circumstances which are relevant for this service or for the registration (e.g. amendments related to the newsletter service or technical issues).

For an effective registration, we require a valid email address. In order to verify that the signing up has actually been done by the owner of this email address, we are applying the “double-opt-in” procedure, i.e. we record the order for receipt of a newsletter, the dispatch of a confirmation email and the receipt of the requested answer. Further data are not collected. These data are exclusively used for the dispatch of newsletters and are not passed on to third parties.

You may withdraw your agreement on collection of your personal data and their use for the dispatch of newsletters at any time. Each newsletter includes the respective link for a cancellation. At any time, you can also cancel this service also directly on our website or send us your request for cancellation via the contact options which is given at the end of this Data Privacy Statement.

When contacting us via email or contact form in case of any question, you give us your voluntary agreement that we are allowed to contact you. This contact requires a valid email address.

Google Analytics

This website is using the functions of the web analysis service “Google Analytics”. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These cookies are text files which are stored on your computer and thus allow an analysis of your website use. The information resulting from this analysis are usually transferred to Google in the USA and stored on their server.

Anonymization of your IP

We have activated on our website the function to anonymize your IP. With respect to the EC countries or to other states beyond the European Economic Area which are legally bound to this agreement, your IP address is cut down by Google before transfer to the USA. Only by way of exception, your full IP address is transferred to a server of Google in the USA and is cut down there. On request of the provider of this website, Google will use this information to analyse your use of this website, to issue reports of the website activities and to provide services to the website provider which are related to the use of this website and the activities on the internet. Your IP address which is identified by Google Analytics and provided by your browser is not merged with other data of Google.

Browser Plugin

You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting your browser software accordingly. We have to point out, however, that this restriction will possibly not allow all functions of this website. Furthermore, you can prevent that your data which are collected by the cookie and related to the use of this website (incl. your IP address), are transferred to and processed by Google. In this case, you need to download the available browser plugin and have it installed by using the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout

Objection to data recording

More information for the handling of user data at Google Analytics are given in the Data Privacy Statement of Google: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245

Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts)

In order to show our website contents for all browsers in a correct and graphically appealing way, we use on this website script and font libraries such as Google Webfonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/). Google Webfonts are transferred to your browser cache in order to avoid repeated loading. In case your browser does not support Google Webfonts or prevents an access, the contents are shown in a standard font.

The selection of script or font libraries automatically initiates a connection of the provider of these libraries. In theory, it is possible that a provider of such libraries collects data but currently it is still fairly vague for which purposes. For the data privacy statement of the library provider Google, please click here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

Use of Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps API in order to display visually geographic information. When using Google Maps, Google also collects, processes and uses data which reflect the use of map functions by visitors.
More close information on the data processing by Google are given in the data privacy statement of Google. In their data protection center, you can also amend your personal settings on data protection.

Detailed instructions for the administration of personal data in the context of Google are given here.

Facebook Plugins (“Like” button)

Our website has integrated plugins of the social network Facebook. The provider is: Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA. The Facebook plugin is identifiable by the Facebook logo or the “Like” button on our website. A list of the Facebook plugins is given at:  https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

When visiting our website, the plugin establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. For this reason, Facebook is informed that you have visited our website with your IP address. When clicking the “Like” button of Facebook while being logged in with your Facebook account, you can link the content of our website with your Facebook profile. This allows Facebook to match your visit of our website to your user account. We point out that we – as the provider of our website – have no knowledge of the data content which is transferred and its use by Facebook. Further information is given in the Data Privacy Statement of Facebook: https://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php.

If you do not agree that Facebook can match your visit of our website with your Facebook account, you have to log off from your Facebook account.
