Welcome to our website. We thank you for your interest in the subject of data protection. We are highly committed to protecting your privacy. The information below provides details of the nature, extent and purpose of collecting, processing and using your personal data while you are using our website.

1. What is personal data?

Personal data within the sense of the German Data Protection Act (BDSG) includes details related to personal or factual matters of a specified or specifiable natural person (the data subject), such as your name, your address, your e-mail address, your telephone number, your bank details or your birth date.

2. Anonymous data collection

Unless stated otherwise in the following sections, no personal data will be collected, processed or used while using this website.

By preserving your anonymity some information will be transferred while accessing this website, such as

  • IP-adress
  • Browsertype/browserversion
  • operating system
  • Referrer URL (last website accessed)
  • Time of server request.

We are not able to relate this data to a certain person. That information will not be combined with other sources of data. After a statistical analysis the data will be deleted and solely used to improve the appeal, contents and functionality of the website.

3. Google-Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). 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.

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. 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 the full functionality of this website.

Furthermore you can prevent Google’s collection and use of data (cookies and IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available.

We point out that we altered the tracking code for Google Analytics by implementing the IP mask function '_gat._anonymizeIp'. By doing this, we ensure that visitors' IP addresses are anonymized.
