When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected via cookies. This information (server log files) contains, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider and the like. None of the collected information allows any conclusions to be made about your person. This information is technically essential to correctly deliver the content of the websites requested by you and is mandatory when using the internet. This information is processed in particular for the following purposes: establishing a smooth connection to the website, facilitating the error-free use of our website, evaluating system security and stability, and other administrative purposes. The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest in the data collection purposes stated above. We do not use your data to make any conclusions about your person. The only recipients of this data are the responsible body and (if applicable) the processor. Where appropriate, we statistically evaluate anonymous information of this nature to optimise our website and the technology used to run it.

 

Cookies

 

Like many websites, we use cookies. Cookies are small text files transferred from a website server to your hard drive. This enables us to automatically receive certain data, such as your IP address, browser, operating system and connection to the internet. Cookies cannot be used to start programs or transfer viruses to computers. Based on the information stored in the cookies, we are able to make navigation easier for you and ensure our website is displayed correctly. The data that we collect will not, under any circumstances, be disclosed to third parties, nor will a link be established to personal data without your consent.

 

In principle, you can also access our website without enabling the use of cookies. Internet browsers are routinely configured to accept cookies. In general, you can disable the use of cookies at any time via your browser settings. Please use your internet browser’s help features to find out how to change these settings. Please note that some features on our website may not work if you disable the use of cookies.

 

SSL encryption

 

To protect your data during transfer, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e. g. SSL) via HTTPS.

 

Use of Google Analytics

 

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (hereinafter: Google). Google Analytics uses cookies, text files that are stored on your computer and allow for the analysis of your use of the website. As a rule, the information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is transferred to a server operated by Google in the USA and stored there. However, the activation of IP anonymisation on this website means that your IP address will be truncated by Google beforehand within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address will only be transferred to a server operated by Google in the USA and truncated there in exceptional cases. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google uses this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports about website activity and to provide other services related to the use of the website and the internet to the website operator. The IP address communicated by your browser and recorded as part of the Google Analytics service is not consolidated with other data collected by Google.

 

Data is processed to evaluate the use of the website and compile reports about website activity. Other associated services can then be provided based on the use of the website and the internet. Processing is based on the legitimate interest of the website operator. You can change the settings in your browser to prevent cookies from being stored on your computer; however, please be aware that in this case you may not be able to use all features provided by this website in full.

 

Furthermore, you can prevent the collection by Google of data (incl. your IP address) generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: browser add-on for disabling Google Analytics. In addition to or as an alternative to a browser add-on, you can disable Google Analytics tracking on our web pages by clicking on this link. An opt-out cookie will be installed on your device. In future, Google Analytics will not be able to store information for this website or browser for as long as the cookie remains installed on your browser.

 

Embedded YouTube videos

 

We embed YouTube videos on some of our web pages. The operator of the corresponding plug-ins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a site containing the YouTube plug-in, a connection will be established to the YouTube servers. This informs YouTube of the pages that you are visiting. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube can link your browsing behaviour directly to you. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.

 

When a YouTube video starts, the provider uses cookies to collect information about user behaviour. If you have disabled the storage of cookies for the Google advertising programs, no cookies will be stored when watching YouTube videos. However, YouTube does store non-personal information on usage in other cookies. If you do not want information of this kind to be collected, you must change the settings in your browser to prevent the storage of cookies. Further information about data protection in conjunction with YouTube is available in the provider’s privacy statement: www.google.de

 

Changes to our privacy policy

 

We reserve the right to amend this privacy statement to always comply with the current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services into the privacy statement, e.g. when new services are introduced. The new version of the privacy statement will apply when you next visit the website.
