Data protection

A visit to our website can result in the storage on our server of information about the access (date, time, page accessed). This does not represent any analysis of personal data (e.g., name, address or e-mail address). If personal data are collected, this only occurs – to the extent possible – with the prior consent of the user of the website. Any forwarding of the data to third parties without the express consent of the user shall not take place.

We would like to expressly point out that the transmission of data via the Internet (e.g., by e-mail) can offer security vulnerabilities.

It is therefore impossible to safeguard the data completely against access by third parties. We cannot assume any liability for damages arising as a result of such security vulnerabilities. The use by third parties of all published contact details for the purpose of advertising is expressly excluded. We reserve the right to take legal steps in the case of the unsolicited sending of advertising information; e.g., by means of spam mail.


Facebook Plug-ins

We use so-called social plug-ins, such as the “like” button, from the network These plug-ins are offered and operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, California 94304, USA and are clearly marked with the Facebook logo. When you open one of our pages that contains such a plug-in, your browser will establish a connection to the Facebook server. The content of this plug-in is directly transferred to your browser by Facebook and, accordingly, shown on our website, although we do not have any influence on the content of this plug-in. Facebook can, under certain circumstances, track your visit to our pages that use Facebook plug-ins and attribute it to a Facebook account when you are registered with Facebook or recently visited a webpage from Facebook or visited a website with Facebook content. When you actively use plug-ins (e.g. click on the like button) certain information will also be transferred directly to Facebook via your browser, although we do not have any influence on this. More precise information about the nature, purpose and extent and the further processing and use of your data by Facebook can be found in Facebook’s privacy information. This also contains more information about your data protection rights and the individual settings designed to protect your privacy. Facebook data protection information: If you not want Facebook to be able to match your visit to our webpage with your Facebook user account, please log out of your Facebook account. Add-ons for your browser, such as the “Facebook Blocker”, for example, can also be used to block Facebook’s social plug-ins. Facebook Blocker:


Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California, 94043 USA (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files, which are saved on your computer and which make it possible to analyse how you have used the website. Normally, the information gathered by the cookie about your use of this website will be transferred to and stored on a Google server in the USA. Where the anonymisation of the IP address is activated on this website, Google will first shorten your IP address within one of the Member States of the European Union or the European Economic Area. In exceptional cases, the complete IP address will be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate the use of the website in order to produce reports on the website activity and render other services related to the use of the website and the internet. The IP addresses transferred from your browser by way of Google Analytics will not be combined with other data by Google. You can use the settings in your browser software to prevent cookies from being saved; please note, however, that disabling cookies may mean that you cannot use all the functions of this website to the full extent. In addition, you can download and install the browser plug-in available under the following link to prevent both the data gathered by the cookie and the data related to your use of the website (including your IP address) from being transferred to and used by Google: In light of discussions on the use of Analysetools with full IP addresses, we would like to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the add-on “_anonymizelp()” and that IP addresses are therefore only analysed in their abbreviated form in order to prevent them from being linked to a particular individual. We also use Google Analytics to analyse data from AdWords and the Double-Click Cookie for statistical purposes. Should you not wish for this to occur, deactivate it via the ads settings manager (
