This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and the like.

We may statistically evaluate anonymous information of this kind to optimize our websites and the underlying technology.

Cookies

Like many other websites, we also use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. They automatically give us certain data, such as IP address, browser used, operating system and your connection to the internet.

Cookies cannot be used to launch programs or to transfer viruses to a computer. Based on the information contained in cookies, we can facilitate navigation and enable the correct display of our website.

Under no circumstances will we pass the collected data on to third parties or create a link with personal data without your consent.

You can of course also navigate on our website without cookies. Internet browsers are regularly set to accept cookies. In general, you can disable the use of cookies at any time through the settings of your browser. Please use the help features of your internet browser to find out how to change these settings. Please note that some features of our website may not work if you have disabled the use of cookies.

SSL ENCRYPTION

To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption techniques (such as SSL) over HTTPS.

COMMENT FUNCTION

For every comment posted on our site, the time of it creation and the username previously chosen by the site visitor will be saved. This is for our security, as we may be prosecuted for any illegal content on our website, even if created by users.

NEWSLETTER

With your expressly given consent, we will regularly send you our newsletter or comparable information per e-mail.

To receive the newsletter, indicating your email address is sufficient. When you sign up to receive our newsletter, the data you provide will be used exclusively for this purpose. Subscribers may also be notified per email about circumstances relevant to the service or registration (such as changes to the newsletter offer or technical conditions).

For an effective registration, we need a valid e-mail address. In order to verify that the application is actually made by the owner of the e-mail address, we use the “Double opt-in” procedure. For this purpose, we record the order of the newsletter, the dispatch of a confirmation mail and the receipt of the requested answer. Further data is not collected. The collected data will be used exclusively for the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.

The consent about the storage of your personal data and their use for the newsletter can be revoked at any time. Each newsletter has a link for it. In addition, you can unsubscribe from this website at any time or inform us of your request via the contact indicated at the end of this Privacy Notice.

If you contact us per e-mail or contact form for questions of any kind, you thereby give us your consent for establishing contact. This requires specifying a valid e-mail address. This serves for classifying and responding to your request. Giving further data is optional. The information you provide will be stored to process the request and for possible follow-up questions. After completing your request, your personal data will be automatically deleted.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (referred to as Google in the following). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, i.e., text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of your navigation on the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymization on these websites, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to Google servers in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your navigation on the website, compile reports about website activity and provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address processed by Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

The purposes of the data processing are the evaluation of the website activity and the compilation of reports about it. Based on the use of the website and the Internet, other related services will be provided. The processing is based on the legitimate interest of the website operator.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by changing the settings of your browser software; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use all the features of this website to the fullest. Also, you may prevent the collection of the data related to your navigation (including your IP address) generated by the cookie as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading the browser plug-in available under the following link and installing it: Browser Add On to disable Google Analytics.

In addition or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can prevent tracking by Google Analytics on our pages by clicking on this link. An opt-out cookie will be installed on your device. This will prevent the collection of your navigation data by Google Analytics for this website and for this browser in the future, as long as the cookie remains installed in your browser.

SCRIPT LIBRARIES (GOOGLE WEB FONTS)

In order to correctly and graphically appealing display our content across browsers, we use script and font libraries on this website, such as: Google Web Fonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/). Google Web Fonts are transferred to the cache of your browser to prevent multiple loading. If the browser does not support Google Web Fonts or prohibits access, content will be displayed in a standard font.

Script libraries or font libraries automatically trigger a connection to the operator of the library. It is theoretically possible – but currently also unclear whether and if so for what purposes – that operators of such libraries collect data.

The privacy policy of the library operator Google can be found here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

GOOGLE MAPS

This website uses Google Maps API to visually display geographic information. When using Google Maps, Google also collects, processes and uses data about the use of map features by visitors. For more information about Google’s data processing, please refer to the Google Privacy Policy. There you can also change your personal privacy settings in the privacy center.

EMBEDDED YOUTUBE VIDEOS

We embed YouTube videos in some of our websites. The corresponding plug-ins are operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plug-in, it will automatically connect to YouTube’s servers. YouTube will be informed which pages you visit. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can assign your surfing behavior to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.

When a YouTube video is started, cookies from the provider collect information about user behavior.

If you disabled the storage of cookies for the Google Ad program, you should not have to expect such cookies when watching YouTube videos. YouTube also stores non- personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in the browser.

For more information on data protection regarding YouTube, see the privacy policy of the provider at: https://www.google.de/intl/en/policies/privacy/

SOCIAL PLUGINS

We offer you the possibility of using so-called “social media buttons” on our website. To protect your data, we implement the “Shariff” solution. As a result, these buttons are integrated on the website only as a graphic containing a link to the corresponding website of the button provider. By clicking on the graphic, you will be redirected to the services of the respective provider. Only then will your data be sent to the respective provider. Unless you click on the graphic, there will be no exchange between you and the providers of the social media buttons. Information about the collection and use of your data in the social networks can be found in the respective terms of use of the respective providers. More information about the Shariff solution can be found here: http://www.heise.de/ct/artikel/Shariff-Social-Media-Buttons-mit-Datenschutz-2467514.html

We have integrated the social media buttons of the following companies in our website:

GOOGLE ADWORDS

Our website uses Google Conversion Tracking. If you reach our website via an advertisement sent or displayed by Google, Google AdWords will set a cookie on your computer. The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on a Google-served ad. These cookies lose their validity 30 days later and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages on our website when the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google may recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. These cookies can therefore not be tracked through AdWords advertisers’ websites. The information gathered through the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not receive personal information about the users.

If you do not want to be tracked, you can refuse the required setting of a cookie – for example via a browser setting that generally disables the automatic setting of cookies or sets your browser to block cookies from the domain “googleleadservices.com”.

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

USE OF GOOGLE REMARKETING

This website uses Google Inc.’s remarketing feature. This feature is designed to present interest-based ads to web site visitors within the Google Network. A so-called “cookie” is stored in the browser of the website visitor, which makes it possible to recognize the visitor when he or she visits websites that belong to the advertising network of Google. On these pages, ads related to content that the visitor previously viewed on web pages may be presented using Google’s remarketing feature.

According to Google, it does not collect any personal information during this process. However, if you still do not want Google’s Remarketing feature, you can always disable it by changing the corresponding settings at http://www.google.com/settings/ads. Alternatively, you can disable the use of cookies for interest-based advertising through the Network Initiative by following the instructions at http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.

CHANGES TO OUR PRIVACY POLICY

We reserve the right to amend this privacy policy to always comply with the latest legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the privacy policy, e.g. when introducing new services. Your new visit will be subject to the new privacy policy.
