Data Protection

Ensuring that your personal data stay private is very important to the administrators of these web pages. We assure you that we will handle your personal data confidentially and in accordance with data protection regulations as well as this data privacy statement. The use of our website is usually possible without providing personal information. Should we collect personal data on our pages (i.e. name, address or e-mail address), this will remain optional, to the extent possible, and will not be passed on to a third party without your explicit consent. Please be aware that there are inherent security risks in transmitting data, such as e-mails, via the Internet, because it is impossible to safeguard completely against unauthorized access by third parties.

Data Protection Using Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

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 the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.

Further information concerning the terms and conditions of use and data privacy can be found at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/gb.html or at https://www.google.de/intl/en_uk/policies/.

Browser Plugin
Furthermore you can prevent Google’s collection and use of data (cookies and IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB.

Refuse the Use of Google Anlaytics
You can refuse the use of Google Analytics by clicking on that link. An opt-out cookie will be set on the computer, which prevents the future collection of your data when visiting this website.

Contracted data processing
We have concluded a data processing agreement with Google and we fully implement the strict requirements of the German Data Protection Authority for the use of Google Analytics.

IP Anonymization
Please note that on this website, Google Analytics code is supplemented by “anonymizeIp” to ensure an anonymized collection of IP addresses (so called IP-masking).

In case of activation of the IP anonymization, Google will truncate/anonymize the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA. On behalf of the website provider Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

Cookies

To optimize our web presence, we use cookies. These are small text files stored in your computer’s main memory. These cookies are deleted after you close the browser. Other cookies remain on your computer (long-term cookies) and permit its recognition on your next visit. This allows us to improve your access to our site.
You can prevent storage of cookies by choosing a « disable cookies » option in your browser settings. But this can limit the functionality of our Internet offers as a result.

 

Server-Log-Files

The provider of the web pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which are automatically transmitted to us by your browser. These are as follows:

  • Browser type/version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the client computer
  • Time of server request

This data cannot be linked to particular individuals. This data will not be merged with data from other sources. We reserve the right to subsequently examine this data if we become aware of any specific evidence of unlawful use.

Contact form

If you use the contact form to send us an enquiry, the information you provide on the form, including the contact details you provide, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing your enquiry and for any follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your permission.

 

Newsletter

We use the so-called double opt-in procedure to ensure that newsletters are sent out in agreement. In this process, the potential recipient can be included in a distribution list. Subsequently, by means of a confirmation e-mail, the user receives the opportunity to confirm the registration in a legally secure manner. The address is only actively included in the distribution list if the registration has been confirmed.

We use these data exclusively for the dispatch of the requested information and offers.

Newsletter2Go is used as newsletter software. Your data will be transmitted to Newsletter2Go GmbH. Newsletter2Go is prohibited from selling your data and using it for purposes other than sending newsletters. Newsletter2Go is a German, certified provider selected in accordance with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation and the Federal Data Protection Act.

You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via the « Unsubscribe » link in the newsletter.

The data protection measures are always subject to technical changes. For this reason, we ask you to inform yourself about our data protection measures at regular intervals by reviewing our data protection declaration.

 

Objection to advertising emails

We oppose the use of any available contact information by a third party for sending unsolicited advertisements. As the Web site provider, we reserve the express right to take legal action against unsolicited mailing or e-mailing of spam and other similar advertising materials.
