Privacy policy

    Introduction

    The company specified in the imprint (hereinafter: “We”) as operator of this online service, is responsible for the collection, processing and use of personal data of users of the online service in the sense of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG, Bundesdatenschutzgesetz). We take the protection of your personal privacy and your private data very seriously. We collect, process and use your personal data in accordance with the content of this privacy policy and the applicable German data protection laws, in particular the BDSG and the Telemedia Act (TMG, Telemediengestz).

    We would like to inform you by way of this privacy policy as to which of your personal data we collect, process and use.


    Personal Data

    Personal data is individual information about your personal or factual circumstances. This includes all information about your identity, such as your name, email address or postal address. In contrast, information that cannot be linked to your identity (such as the number of users of the online service) does not count as personal information.

    In principal, you can use our online service without disclosing your identity and without providing personal data. For some of the services offered, however, personal data is collected from you. In principal, we only collect, store and use the data for the purpose of using this online service, in particular for providing the desired information.

                                                                                    

    Storing and processing personal information

    Your information is stored on specially protected servers. These are protected using technical and organisational measures against loss, destruction, access, modification or dissemination of your data by unauthorised persons. Your data can only be accessed by a few authorised persons. They are responsible for the technical, commercial or editorial support of the servers. Despite regular checks, complete protection against all dangers is not possible.

    The transmission of our web pages and your entries on our web pages via the internet is in principal unencrypted. It is therefore not excluded that third parties can view and/or access the transmitted data. We recommend that you consider this aspect when deciding whether and which data you submit to us over the Internet.

    Your personal data is encrypted and transmitted over the Internet. We use SSL encryption (Secure Socket Layer) for data transmission.

    Transfer of personal data to third parties

    In principle, we use your personal information only for the fulfilment of your desired services. Should we use the services of external service providers within the framework of performing our service, any accessing of the data on their part is likewise solely for the purpose of performing the service. We take technical and organisational measures to ensure compliance at all times with data protection requirements and also obligate our external service providers accordingly.

    Moreover we do not pass the data on to third parties without your express consent, especially regarding advertising purposes. Your personal data will only be passed on to third parties if you yourself have consented thereto or to the extent that we are entitled or obligated to do so in accordance with statutory requirements and/or official or court orders. Such instances can in particular include the provision of information for purposes of law enforcement, emergency response or for the enforcement of intellectual property rights.

    Use of cookies

    As is the case on many websites, cookies are used for our online service. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and store certain settings and data via your browser for exchange with the online service from us. A cookie usually contains the name of the domain from which the cookie file was sent, as well as information about the age of the cookie and an alphanumeric identifier.

    Cookies enable us to recognise the computer and to make any default settings immediately available. Cookies help us to improve the online service and offer you a better and more personalised service. The cookies we use are so-called session cookies, which are automatically deleted after the end of the browser session.

Please note that you may be limited or unable to use our online service at all if you disable the storing of cookies.


    Google Analytics

    We use Google Analytics for statistical analysis. Google Analytics is a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94034, USA (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files stored in your computer that enable analysis of the way users use the website. The information generated by the cookie about your usage of the website will generally be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is enabled on this website, your IP address will first be truncated by Google within the member states of the European Union or other states party to the agreement on the European Economic Area. In exceptional cases only, the complete IP address may be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website in order to compile reports on the activities of the website and to provide further services relating to the use of the website and the internet usage regarding the operator of the website. The IP address that your browser transmits within the scope of Google Analytics will not be associated with any other data held by Google. You can prevent the storing of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser software; however, we must point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the features of this website. In addition, you can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) as well as the processing of this data by Google in future by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de).

    For more information please visit http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de or http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html (General information on Google Analytics and data protection). We must point out that on our Google Analytics websites the code “anonymizeIp ();” was extended to anonymise the IP addresses, whereby the last octet is deleted. [sic]
