Collection, processing and use of your data
The contents and offers on our website are intended for anonymous use. If we want to collect any personal data, we must first ask your permission. Our website consists of public and non-public parts. You do not have to register to use the public part of our website; we therefore also do not store any personal data. We merely collect anonymous data (e.g. “cookies”). Anonymous data is data that does not reveal your identity.
Should you wish to use the non-public part of our website, you must register first and agree to the collection, use and processing of your data. The data we collect is used solely for the purpose of our business.
This website uses Google Analytics, a Google Inc. (“Google”) web analysis service.

The information on your usage of this website generated by the cookie (including your IP address) is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will use such information to evaluate your use of this website, to compile reports on the website activities for the website operator, and to perform further services linked to website and internet use. Google may also pass this information on to third parties if this is legally required or in as far as third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Under no circumstance will Google link your IP address with other Google data. You can prevent the installation of cookies through a respective setting in your browser software, although we would like to point out that if you do so, you may not be able to use all of this website’s features to their full extent.

Our internet presence uses social plug-ins from the social network Google+ (Google lnc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA).
You can identify these plug-ins by the respective company logo.
When you visit a page on our website that contains such a plug-in, your browser will automatically create a direct connection to the social network’s servers. The social network transmits the content of the plug-in directly to your browser and integrates it on the website. We have no influence on the extent of the data that the social networks collect with the aid of this plug-in, and the information below therefore reflects only the facts that we are aware of:
Through the integration of these plug-ins, the social network operators receive the information that you have called up a certain page on our website. If you are logged into your account with the social network, your website visit can be allocated to your user account. When you use these plug-ins, your browser transmits the respective information directly to the social network, where it is stored. If you do not have an account with the social network, your IP address may still be stored by these social networks.
If you have an account with the network and you do not want any information about you to be collected and linked to your profile via our website, you must log out of the social network before you use our website.
We assume no liability for the accuracy and use of contents made available on these servers. The insertion of a link to a third party website does mean that we recommend or support the respective third party or its products and services.
