We would like to point out that transmitting information on the internet can make information vulnerable and that it is not possible to completely protect information from being accessed by third parties.


Cookies

Our website uses cookies to recognise repeated use of our website by the same user/ internet connection subscriber. Cookies are small text files which your internet browser downloads and stores on your computer. They assist us to improve our website and services. Most of the time these are “session cookies”, which are deleted once you leave our website. But sometimes these cookies provide information in order to recognise you automatically again. Recognition occurs through an IP address saved to the cookies. Information acquired in this way helps to improve our services and to make it easier for you to access our website.
You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting the settings on your browser. We would like to point out, however, that by doing so you might not be able to fully use all features of our website.


Server information

For technical reasons the following information which your internet browser transmits to us or to our webspace provider, includes among other points (so-called server log files):

  • Browser type and version
  • Operation system used 
  • Website, from which you visit us (referrer URL)
  • Website, which you visit 
  • Date and time of your access 
  • Your IP address

This anonymous information is stored separately from any personal information you provide meaning that it cannot be traced back to a certain person. The information is evaluated for statistical purposes in order to improve our website and services.


Contact Option

On our website we give you the opportunity to contact us, either by email and/or by using a contact form. Regardless, information provided by the user is stored for the purpose of facilitating communications with the user. No data is transferred to third parties. None of this information is matched to any information that may be collected by other components of our website.


Use of Google-Analytics with Anonymisation Function

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereafter referred to as “Google”. Google Analytics uses cookies which are text files that are stored on your computer to analyse the use of the website.

The information gathered about the use of this website using cookies such as time, location, and frequency of your website visit including your IP address is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Our website uses Google Analytics with a function that anonymises IP addresses. Your IP address is in this case truncated and anonymised by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other signatories of the agreement on the European Economic Area.

Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for us, and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where third parties process the information on Google's behalf.

Google states that it will under no circumstances associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may prevent the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that if you do so, you may not be able to use all the features of this website.

Furthermore, Google offers a deactivating option for the most common browsers which gives you more control over the information Google records and processes. If you activate this option, no information about the website visit is transferred to Google Analytics. However, the activation does not prevent information from being transferred to us or to any other web analytic services. More information about the deactivation option provided by Google as well as about activating this option is available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en


Use of Google-Maps

Our website uses the "Google Maps" service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereafter referred to as "Google".

Each time Google Maps is called, Google sets a cookie to process user settings and data when viewing the page that has the Google Maps component integrated. This cookie is usually not deleted by closing the browser but will expire after a certain amount of time unless it is manually deleted by you.

If you do not agree to the processing of your data, you may disable the "Google Maps" service and thus prevent the transmission of data to Google. To do this, you must disable the Java Script feature in your browser. However, please note that if you do so, you will not be able to use "Google Maps" or only to a limited extent.

The use of "Google Maps" and information obtained through "Google Maps" is subject to Google’s Terms of Use

http://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/terms/regional.html

and to the additional terms and conditions for "Google Maps"

https://www.google.com/intl/en_en/help/terms_maps.html


Use of Google-Adwords

We also use the Google advertising tool "Google AdWords" to promote our website. As part of this, we use the Conversion Tracking from Google Analytics, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereafter referred to as Google. If you have reached our website via a Google ad, a cookie will be stored on your computer. Cookies are small text files which your internet browser downloads and stores on your computer. These so-called "conversion cookies" lose their validity after 30 days and are not used to identify you personally. If you visit certain pages on our website and the cookie has not expired yet, we and Google may recognise that you, as a user, have clicked on one of our Google-placed ads and have been redirected to our website.

The information obtained through the "Conversion Cookies" is used by Google to create visitor statistics for our website. These statistics tell us the total number of users who clicked on our ad, and which pages on our website were subsequently accessed by their respective users. However, neither we nor other advertisers who use Google AdWords receive any information that personally identifies users.

You can prevent the installation of the "conversion cookies" by adjusting the settings in your browser accordingly, for example, by setting a browser that generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies or specifically blocks only cookies from the domain "googleadservices.com.

Google's privacy policy can be found at the following link: https://services.google.com/sitestats/en.html


Use of Google Remarketing

We also use Google’s remarketing function. As a result, we can show you personalised advertising on suitable advertising spaces on other websites based on the interests you have shown on our website.

You can find more information about this in Google’s data privacy statement. You can stop interest-based advertising by installing this browser plugin.


Access/Withdrawal/Deletion

The General Data Protection Regulation provides that you can contact us free of charge in the event of questions on collecting, processing, or using your personal information and to correct, block, or withdraw consent given. We would like to point out that you are entitled to correct incorrect information or to delete personal information as long as this right does not run counter to a legal obligation to retain such information.
