Privacy Policy

That unauthorized third parties could gain access to data transmitted through the internet cannot be ruled out under the current state of technological development. We explicitly point out that internet contact via email is currently not absolutely safe. For transmitting your personal data, we therefore ask you to choose a suitable medium.

We are unable to match this data with specific persons. We do not merge this data with any other data sources.

At several places, this website makes use of “cookies”. These allow us to make our offers more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files placed on your computer and stored by your browser. Most of them are “session cookies”, which are automatically deleted after each session ends. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain any viruses.

Google Analytics and Google Remarketing

This website uses Google Analytics and Google Remarketing. These are services of 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. The last three digits of the IP address will then be cut off by Google. A clear association of the IP address will therefore no longer be possible. Google respects the data protection rules of the "US Safe Harbor Treaty” and is registered with the "Safe Harbor Program” of the US department of commerce.

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. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf.

Third parties, including Google, place ads on websites in the Internet. Third parties, including Google, use saved cookies to place ads on the basis of previous visits of a user on this website. Google will never associate your IP address with any other Google data. Data gathering and data storage can be disputed at any time with effect for the future. The use of cookies by Google can be deactivated by visiting the page for the deactivation of Google ads. Alternatively, users can deactivate the use of cookies through third parties by visiting the deactivation page of the network advertising initiative.

However, in that case, please be aware that you might not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. The use of this website implies your agreement to Google using the data collected from you in the way described above and for the purpose described above. The data gathering and data storage can be disputed at any time with effect for the future. Further information about the terms and conditions of Google can be found here.
