Data Protection

General Information

We welcome your visit to our internet pages and your interest in our company. It is our aim to offer you the best possible service. This includes continual optimization of our internet presence and, naturally, the protection of your data.

When you visit our internet site, our server automatically records data that is not associated with any personal identity. Such data may include, for example, the domain name and IP address of the requesting computer, the access date, the duration of your visit, or the website from which you are visiting us. These data are usually collected for the purpose of system security and to continually optimize our site and services. The evaluation is carried out purely statistically.

Other personal data, such as your name, address, telephone number, or email address, are not recorded unless you expressly communicate this information to us (e.g. through the contact form or by email). Of course, if that is the case, we will only collect, process or use your data for the purposes specified or the resulting purposes, unless disclosure is required under applicable law. We only use them for other purposes (e.g. advertising or market and opinion research) if you have given us your express consent to such use.

Please be aware that there are inherent security risks in transmitting data via the internet for which we are not responsible. Transferring data by e-mail, in particular, carries the risk of third party access.

Use of Cookies

We use cookies on our website to be able to offer you an optimal and user-friendly visit. These cookies do not contain personal data and we will not combine them with other data to personally identify you. Furthermore, we use an analysis tool that also works with cookies.

Reference to Analysis Tool Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by 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 will normally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Because anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address is, however, truncated in advance by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google service in the USA and truncated there. Under the authority of the provider of this website 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. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. For more information on how Google uses the data generated when its partners' websites and apps are used, please see www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/partners. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) from being recorded by Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in below.

By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-On

To provide website visitors more choice on how their data is collected by Google Analytics, we have developed the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-On. The add-on instructs the Google Analytics JavaScript not to send any information about the website visit to Google Analytics. If you want to opt-out, download and install the add-on for your current web browser. The Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-On is available for Microsoft Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari and Opera. 

Go to Google Analytics Opt-Out

As an alternative to the browser add-on or within browsers on mobile devices, you can click the following link in order to opt-out from being tracked by Google Analytics within this website in the future (the opt-out applies only for the browser in which you set it and within this domain). An opt-out cookie will be stored on your device, which means that you will have to click this link again, if you delete your cookies.
