Information about Data Protection

With your access to this website, information about the access (date, time and viewed pages) is saved on our server. This data is used exclusively for statistical purposes. Analysis takes place only in an anonymous form. As far as the possibility exists to enter personal or business data (electronic mail addresses, names, postal addresses), the input of this data takes place voluntarily. If you send us an e-mail, your e-mail address and other personal data will only be used for correspondence with you. Your entered data will only be used by us and will be treated confidentially according to the prevailing regulations. Using and paying for all services offered is – in as much as this is technically possible and feasible - also permitted without entering such data and / or anonymously entering data or by using an alias. The use of contact data within the framework of the disclaimer or similar declarations, such as postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers as well as e-mail addresses, by a third party for the transmission of not expressly requested information, is not permitted. We reserve the right to take legal measures against those transmitters of so-called spam mails that violate this regulation.

Use of Facebook-Plugins

Plugins from the social network facebook.com – operated from Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook") – are used. When you open pages from our website with such a plugin, then a connection to the Facebook server will be established which in turn instructs your web browser to display the plugin on that webpage. Through this, the pages of our website you have visited will be transmitted to Facebook. If you are logged in as a member of Facebook at the same time, Facebook will allocate this information to your personal Facebook user account. When using the plugin functions (e.g. clicking on the "like" button or making a comment), this information is also associated with your Facebook account. This can only be avoided if you logout before the use of the plugin. More information about the collection and use of data by Facebook as well as your rights and possibilities for protecting your privacy, can be found in Facebook’s data privacy protection policy.

Use of Retargeting Functions

Placing of interest-based Advertising with help from “Retargeting Functions”

This website uses so called “Retargeting Tags”. For “Retargeting Tags”, a JavaScript element placed in the source code of the website is meant. When a user visits a page which contains a “Retargeting Tag” on this website, a supplier of online advertising (e.g. Google) places a cookie in the user’s computer, and sorts in addition this appropriate target group.  This cookie serves to place Retargeting campaigns (Interest related advertising) on other websites. Studies have shown that the insertion of interest related advertising is more interesting for the internet user than advertising that does not have any direct reference to the interests or rather the previously visited Websites of the user.
