We take data protection seriously
When you visit our website, our web servers store the IP of your Internet service provider, the website from which you visit us, the web pages you visit on our site and the date and duration of your visit as standard. This information is essential for the technical transmission of the web pages and secure server operation. There is no personalised analysis of this data.

Personal data
Personal data is data about your person. This includes your name, your address and your e-mail address. You do not have to disclose any personal data in order to visit our website. In some cases, we need your name and address as well as other information in order to be able to offer you the desired service. The same applies if we supply you with information material on request or if we answer your enquiries. In these cases, we will always point this out to you. In addition, we only store the data that you have transmitted to us automatically or voluntarily.

Automatically stored non-personal data
When you visit our website, we may store certain information for administrative and technical reasons. This may include the type and version of browser used, the date and time of access and the IP address. However, if this data is anonymised, it is only collected for statistical purposes and used to improve our Internet and online services. This anonymised data is stored – separately from personal data – on secure systems and cannot be assigned to individual persons. This means that your personal data remains protected at all times.

Diese anonymisierten Daten werden – getrennt von personenbezogenen Daten – auf sicheren Systemen gespeichert und können keinen individuellen Personen zugeordnet werden. Das bedeutet, dass Ihre personenbezogenen Daten jederzeit geschützt bleiben.

When you visit our website, we may store information on your computer in the form of cookies. Cookies are small files that are transferred from an Internet server to your browser and stored on your hard drive. Only the internet protocol address is stored – no personal data. This information, which is stored in the cookies, allows us to automatically recognise you the next time you visit our website, making it easier for you to use it. Of course, you can also visit our website without accepting cookies. If you do not want your computer to be recognised on your next visit, you can also refuse the use of cookies by changing the settings in your browser to “refuse cookies”. The respective procedure can be found in the operating instructions of your respective browser. However, if you refuse the use of cookies, this may restrict the use of some areas of our website.

Use of Google Analytics with anonymisation function
We use Google Analytics on our website, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google”. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by these cookies, such as the time, place and frequency of your website visit, including your IP address, is transmitted to Google in the USA and stored there. We use Google Analytics with the addition “_gat._anonymiseIp” on our website. In this case, your IP address will already be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area and thereby anonymised.

Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of our website, compiling reports on website activity for us 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 states that it will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. 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 our website.

Furthermore, Google offers a deactivation add-on for the most common browsers, which gives you more control over what data Google collects about the websites you visit. The add-on informs the JavaScript (ga.js) of Google Analytics that no information about the website visit should be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, the deactivation add-on for browsers from Google Analytics does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analysis services that we may use. For more information on installing the browser add-on, please click on the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

If you visit our site via a mobile device (smartphone or tablet), you must click this link instead to prevent tracking by Google Analytics within this website in the future. This is also possible as an alternative to the above browser add-on. Clicking the link will set an opt-out cookie in your browser that is only valid for this browser and this domain. If you delete the cookies in this browser, the opt-out cookie will also be deleted, so you will have to click the link again.

Use of Site improve Analytics
This website uses Siteimprove Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Siteimprove GmbH, Kurfürstendamm 56, 10707 Berlin, Germany. Siteimprove Analytics uses cookies, which are stored on your computer and enable your use of the website to be analysed. The information generated by cookies about your use of this website (including your encrypted IP address) is transmitted to a Siteimprove server in Denmark and stored there. Siteimprove will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website and compiling reports on website activity for website operators. Siteimprove will not transfer this information to third parties. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Siteimprove in the manner and for the purposes set out above. You can prevent Siteimprove Analytics from collecting your data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set to prevent the future collection of your data when you visit this website: Deactivate Siteimprove Analytics. If you delete your cache, the opt-out cookie will also be deleted and must be set again.

Use of Google AJAX Search API
We use Ajax on these pages. Google AJAX Search API is a service provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. This tool is used to optimise loading speeds. For this purpose, programme libraries are called up from Google servers and Google’s CDN (Content Delivery Network) is used. If you have previously used jQuery on another page from the Google CDN, your browser will fall back on the copy stored in the cache. If this is not the case, this requires a download, whereby data from your browser is sent to Google Inc (“Google”). Your data will be transferred to the USA. You can find out more in the provider’s privacy policy: www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/
