Data Protection

When visiting our website, personal or anonymous data may be collected or processed. Every time our website is visited, the access data is saved in a log file on our server in a data center. The analysis of anonymous data is exclusively for statistical purposes, without references to persons. The collection, processing and use of personal data are subject to the data-protection regulations of Germany and the European data-protection directive (95/46/EC). Personal data in countries outside the scope of the European data-protection directive is not processed. In the event that you provide contact details, they are exclusively used for making contact and will not be passed on to unauthorized third parties. You have the right to request information on which personal data concerning you is collected, processed or used. Please see the address provided in the Legal Notice. For all other questions concerning data protection, please contact us by email.

 

Google Analytics:

To improve the quality of our services and our website, we save data on individual access to the site for statistical purposes. To this end, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043 USA. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are small text files saved on your computer. They enable your use of our website to be analyzed.

The cookie saved when our website is visited contains a unique ID that is meaningless outside of our website. You can prevent the cookie from being saved by reconfiguring your browser software. However, you may not be able to fully use all functions of our website if you do so. In addition, you are also able to prevent the data about your use of our website (including your IP address) generated by the cookie from being sent to and processed by Google. To do so, download and install the browser plugins available under this link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. You can also manually block the Google Analytics script from loading and being executed. This is achieved by blocking the JavaScript or blocking access to the Google Analytics domain. The information about your use of this website generated by the cookie is usually transferred to a Google server in the US and saved there. We have activated the “anonymizelP” function, an IP anonymization tool. This means that Google anonymizes the IP addresses recorded on our website before they are transferred, and it does so by deleting the last 8 bits of IP addresses. It is only in exceptional cases that the full IP address is sent to a Google server in the US before being shortened there.

At our request, Google will use this information to analyze your use of our website, compile reports about website activity and, as required, provide us with other services related to the use of the website and internet usage. The IP address transmitted from your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be put together with other data Google has saved.
