Data Protection Declaration
The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We keep your personal data confidential and in accordance with the legal data protection regulations as well as this data protection declaration. As a general rule, our website can be used without the indication of personal data. Insofar as personal data (e.g. name, address, e-mail) is collected on our websites, this is always done – as far as possible – on a voluntary basis. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your explicit consent. We would like draw your attention to the fact that data transmission over the internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) may involve security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.
Responsible authority subject to the data protection laws is:

Registration on our website
When registering for the use of our personalized services, some personal data such as name, address, contact- and communication data (telephone number and email address) is collected. If you are registered at our website, you can access content and services that we only offer to registered users. Registered users also have the option of changing or deleting the data entered during registration at any time. Of course, we will also provide you with information about the personal data we have stored about you at any time. We will also be happy to correct or delete them upon your request, as far as there are no legal retention requirements opposed. To contact us in this context, please use the contact details provided at the end of this data protection declaration.
If users leave comments on the blog, the time of their creation and the user name previously chosen by the website visitor are saved in addition to the comments. This serves our security, as we may be prosecuted for illegal content on our website, even if it has been created by users.
When you register to receive our newsletter, the data you provide will be used exclusively for this purpose. Subscribers may also be informed via e-mail about service or registration-related circumstances (e.g. changes in the newsletter offer or technical circumstances).
For an effective registration, we need a valid email address. We use the “double-opt-in” procedure to verify that a registration is actually carried out by the owner of an email-address. For this purpose, we record the order of the newsletter, the dispatch of a confirmation email and the receipt of the herewith requested reply. Further data will not be collected. They will be used exclusively for the newsletter dispatch and will not be passed on to third parties.
You can withdraw your consent to the storage of your personal data and its use for the newsletter dispatch at any time. In every newsletter you will find a corresponding link. Furthermore, you can unsubscribe directly from this website at any time or send us your request via the contact details at the end of this document.
Cancellation or blocking of data
We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore store your personal data only for as long as necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as provided by the various legally prescribed storage periods. After the respective purpose has ceased to exist or after these periods have expired, the corresponding data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.
Use of Google Analytics
In addition, or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can prevent the tracking by Google Analytics on our pages by clicking on this link. This will install an opt-out cookie on your device. It will prevent Google Analytics from collecting cookies for this website and for this browser in the future as long as the cookie remains installed in your browser.
Use of Google Remarketing
This website uses the remarketing function of Google Inc. This function is used to present interest-related advertisements to website visitors within the Google advertising network. A so-called “cookie” is stored in the visitor’s browser, which makes it possible to recognize the visitor when he or she visits websites that belong to the Google advertising network. On these pages, advertisements can be presented to the visitor referring to contents that the visitor has previously invoked on websites that use the remarketing function of Google.
Social plugins are used on our websites. You can recognize them by the fact that they are marked with the corresponding logo.
These plugins may be used to send information, including personal data, to the service provider and where appropriate, they may be used by the service provider. We impede the unconscious and unintentional collection and transmission of data to the service provider through a 2-click solution. In order to activate a desired social plugin, it must first be activated by clicking on the corresponding button. Only this activation of the plugin triggers the collection of information and its transmission to the service provider. We do not collect any personal data ourselves by means of the social plugins or through their use.
We have no influence over which data an activated plugin collects and how it is used by the provider. Currently, it must be assumed that a direct connection to the provider’s services will be expanded and that at least the IP address and device-related information will be recorded and used. It is also possible that service providers attempt to store cookies on the computer used. Please refer to the data protection information of the respective service provider to find out what concrete data are collected and how they are used. Note: If you are logged on to Facebook at the same time, Facebook can identify you as a visitor to a specific page.
Data protection declaration for the use of Facebook-Plugins (like-button)
Our pages incorporate plugins of the social network Facebook, provider Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA. You can recognize the Facebook plugins by the Facebook logo or the "like" button on our page. An overview of the Facebook plugins can be found here: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
When you visit our pages, the plugin establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. Facebook receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click the Facebook "like" button while logged into your Facebook account, they can link the content of our pages to your Facebook profile. This allows Facebook to allocate visiting our pages with your user account. We would like to point out that, as the provider of the pages, we do not have any knowledge about the content of the data transmitted to or its use by Facebook. You can find further information about this in Facebook’s data protection declaration at http://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php .
If you do not want Facebook to be able to assign visits of our pages to your Facebook user account, please log out of your Facebook user account.
Data protection declaration for the use of Twitter
On our pages, functions of the service Twitter are integrated. These functions are offered by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. By using Twitter and the „re-tweet“ function, the websites you visit are linked to your Twitter account and disclosed to other users. Thereby, data is also transferred to Twitter. We would like to point out that, as the provider of the pages, we do not have any knowledge about the content of the transmitted data or its use by Twitter. Further information to this can be found in Twitter’s data protection declaration at http://twitter.com/privacy. You can change your privacy settings on Twitter in your account settings at http://twitter.com/account/settings.
Some of the websites use so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved on your browser. Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser during your next visit. You can adjust your browser in such a way that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only permit cookies in individual cases, accept cookies for certain cases or generally exclude them as well as active the automatic deletion function of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.
Our website utilizes Google Conversion-Tracking. If you have reached our website through an advertisement placed by Google, Google AdWords places a cookie on your computer. The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ad placed by Google. These cookies expire after 30 days and do not serve personal identification. If the user visits certain pages on our website and the cookie has not expired yet, we and Google may recognize that the user has clicked on the ad and that he/she has been directed to that page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. As a result, cookies cannot be tracked through websites of AdWords-customers. The information collected from the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers will know the total number of users who clicked on their ad and who were directed to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they will not receive information that personally identifies users.
If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can reject the setting of a cookie required for this – for example via browser settings that generally deactivate the automatic setting of cookies or set your browser in such a way that cookies are blocked by the domain „googleleadservices.com”.
Please note that you are not allowed to delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not wish to record measurement data. If you have deleted all of your cookies in your browser, you must set the respective opt-out cookie again.
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are: browser type/ browser version, utilised operating system, referrer URL, host name of the accessing computer, and the time of the server inquiry. These data cannot be assigned to specific persons. This data is not merged with other data sources. If we become aware of concrete indications of illegal use, we reserve the right to subsequently check this data.
Contact form/request form
If you send us inquiries using the contact form/request form, your information from the request form including the contact data provided by you will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. This data will not be passed on without your explicit consent.
Information, Deletion, Blocking
You have the right to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing at any time as well as a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint for this and other questions on the subject of personal data.
Changes to our data protection regulations
We reserve the right to modify this data protection declaration from time to time in order that it always complies with current legal requirements or in order to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services. Your new visit will then be subject to the new data protection declaration.
