In the following provisions, we shall inform you about the nature, scope and purposes of collecting and using your personal data on this website.

1. Collecting, processing and using personal data

Any time content is accessed on our website, communications data are transmitted to our web server. These communications data include:

* the IP address of the relevant user,
* the browser type / browser version,
* the date of access,
* the referrer URL and
* the host name of the computer gaining access.

These communications data are not used to draw conclusions about the identity of the user or combined with data from other sources, but rather facilitate the provision of the website.

Beyond this, we only collect and process your personal data provided you have consented, it is necessary to provide the desired services and is in accordance with the following provisions.

2. Transfer of personal data

Your personal data is not transferred to third parties unless you have granted your consent, the data transfer is necessary to provide the relevant services, or we are entitled or obliged to transfer data due to statutory provisions and/or an administrative or court order.

3. Use of Cookies

In order to make our website attractive to visit and to enable the use of certain functions, we use what are known as cookies. Cookies are small text files which are saved on your computer and enable us to recognise your internet browser. Some of the cookies we use are deleted at the end of the browser session (known as session cookies). By contrast, other cookies remain on your device and enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit (known as persistent cookies).

In general, you can delete cookies at any time using your browser’s privacy function. In this case, however, we would point out that some functions of our website may be not be fully usable.

4. Use of software solutions

We use various software solutions to optimise our website. These solutions allow website usage to be analysed and valuable information about the needs of users to be gathered, so that the user-friendliness and quality of the online services can be continuously enhanced.

We deploy the following software solutions within the meaning of the above (by clicking the respective provider below, the user will be redirected to the opt out option):

Google Analytics: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

Please note: Opting out is done using a cookie. If that cookie is deleted, the opt-out option must be reactivated.

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on the user’s computer and which allow an analysis of the use of the website. The information on the use of the website generated by the cookie is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. In addition, we have extended the Google Analytics code with “anonymizeIP” on this website. This ensures the masking of the user’s IP address so that all data is collected anonymously. Only in exceptional cases the full IP address will be transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there.

On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate the use of the website in order to compile reports on the website activities and to provide other services related to the website usage and the Internet usage for the website operator. The user can prevent the storage of the cookies by means of a corresponding setting of his browser software; in this case not all functions of this website may be fully utilized.

The user can also prevent Google from collecting the data (including IP address) generated by the cookie and its use of the website (including IP address) as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading the browser plug-in available under the following link and installed: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

We use Google Analytics, including the capabilities of Universal Analytics. Universal Analytics allows us to analyze the activities on our sites across devices (for example, when using a laptop, and later by using a tablet). This is made possible by the pseudonym assignment of a user ID to a user. Such an assignment occurs, for example, when the user registers for a customer account or logs on to his customer account. However, no personal data will be forwarded to Google. Although adding additional features to Google Analytics with Universal Analytics, this does not mean that there is a limitation of data protection measures such as IP Masking or the browser add-on.

5. Newsletter

If you sign up for our newsletter, you will first be asked to confirm you have given your consent via a confirmation email. We use this double opt-in procedure to check that you are the owner of the email address provided and, as such, have consented to the receipt of the newsletter.

You can revoke your consent to the receipt of the newsletter and the associated processing of your personal data at any time with future effect e.g. by using the link contained in the newsletter.

6. Links to other websites

The content of this website may include links to third-party sites.

At time of creating the link, we checked the external sites for possible legal infringements and were unable to ascertain any legal infringements. We cannot guarantee that constant checks will be performed on all the content of the sites linked by us. Should we become aware of factual indications of legal infringements, we will delete the link.

7. Data security

We have taken appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect your data, particularly against loss, access or distribution by unauthorised third parties. Nevertheless, we cannot guarantee that your information or your data is secure against all unlawful activities by third parties. Therefore, you should always keep your data (passwords etc.) confidential and close your browser window after visiting our website.
