Purposes of data processing by the responsible body and third parties

This information (server log files) includes, among other things, the type of browser used, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider, and other similar data. None of the information collected can be connected to you as an individual.

Anonymous information of this kind can be statistically analyzed in order to improve our website and its underlying technology.

 

Cookies

We use "cookies", as do many other websites. Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. When this happens, we automatically receive certain data, such as your IP address, the browser used, the operating system on your computer, and your connection to the Internet.

Cookies cannot be used to run programs or transfer viruses to your computer. Based on the information contained in the cookies, we can simplify navigation for you and ensure that our website displays correctly.

The information we collect will never be forwarded to third parties or linked to your personal data without your explicit consent.

Our website can, of course, be viewed without the use of cookies. Internet browsers are normally configured to accept cookies. You can disable the use of cookies at any time via your browser settings. Please refer to your Internet browser's help feature to learn how you can change these settings. Please note that some of our website features 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 methods (e.g., SSL) via HTTPS.

 

Contact form

If you contact us with any questions by e-mail or through the contact form, you thereby give us your consent to contact you. A valid email address is required for this purpose. This is used to allocate the request and then reply to it. The provision of any further data is optional. The information you give us will be stored for the purpose of processing the request, as well as for potential follow-up questions. After your request has been processed, your personal data will be deleted automatically.

 

Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (following: Google). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer to help us analyse the use of the website. As a rule, the information about your use of this website generated by the cookies will be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Due to the activation of IP anonymisation on these websites, your IP address will be previously truncated by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other parties to the Agreement in the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the complete IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage for the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser for Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google.

The purposes of data processing are to evaluate the use of the website and to compile reports on activities on the website. Other related services will then be provided based on your use of the website and the internet. The data is processed on the basis of the legitimate interest of the website operator.

You can stop these cookies from being stored by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser. However, we point out that in this case you may not be able to enjoy the full functionality of this website. You can additionally prevent the transmission of data produced by the cookie and associated with your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and its processing by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.

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. This will save an opt-out cookie onto your device. This will prevent the collection of data by Google Analytics on this website when using this browser in the future, as long as the cookie remains installed in your browser.

Disable Google Analytics.

 

Use of Matomo

This website uses Matomo (formerly Piwik), an open-source software for the statistical evaluation of visitor access. Matomo uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer to help us analyse the use of the Website.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website is stored on a server.

The IP address is anonymised immediately following processing and prior to storage. You can prevent the installation of cookies by changing the preferences in your web browser. Please be advised that the adjusted preferences may mean that some website functions may no longer be available.

You may decide whether an explicit web analytics cookie may be stored on your browser to allow the website provider to collect and analyze various statistical data.

 

 

Use of 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.

There, you can also access the Data Protection Centre to change the privacy preferences for your personal data.

Embedded YouTube videos

On some of our websites we embed YouTube videos. The operator of the plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. As soon as you visit a page with a YouTube plugin, a connection to YouTube servers will be established. This will inform YouTube which pages you are visiting. When you are logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube can associate your browsing habits with you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.

As soon as a YouTube video starts, the provider uses cookies that collect information about user behaviour.

If you have deactivated the storage of cookies for the Google Ad program, you do not have to reckon with such cookies when viewing YouTube videos. YouTube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you wish to prevent this, you must block cookies from being saved in your browser.

For more information about privacy at “Youtube” see the privacy policy of the provider: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en&gl=de

 

Changes to our Privacy Regulations

We reserve the right to adjust this privacy policy so that it always meets the current legal requirements or to include changes to our services in the privacy policy, such as the introduction of new services (website function). Any subsequent website access will then be subject to the terms of the new privacy policy.
