Maintaining the security of your data and your privacy is of highest importance to us.
Anonymous data collection
You may visit our website without giving us your personal data. No personal data will be collected. For the improvement of our offerings we analyze just statistical data which allow no inference to personal data.
Collection and processing of data from our contact form
With your use of our contact form we collect personal data (details regarding personal or factual conditions of a certain or ascertainable natural person) only to the extent that you have made it available to us. Your email address will be used only for processing your inquiry. Your data will be deleted if you have not agreed to their further processing and use.
Use of email address for sending newsletters
We use your email address exclusively for internal advertising purposes, i.e., our own advertising materials. If you do not agree, you have the right to protest such use at any time. Such protest may be transmitted not just by email, but also by any other communication method. However, it has to reach us to become effective. No costs other than normal transmission costs are involved. Contact information for sending your protest can be found on our Legal Notice page. You may also use the “unsubscribe” link in our newsletter. Your email address will then be deleted.
Sharing of personal data
We do not share your data with third parties unless we have your express permission. The only exceptions are our service partners that we need for the fulfillment of our contractual responsibilities. In such cases we adhere strictly to applicable data protection laws. Sharing of data is kept to an absolute minimum.
Use of Google AdWords Conversion Tracking
We use the online advertising program “Google AdWords” and along with it the AdWords conversion tracking. Google conversion tracking is an analyzing service of Google, Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”).
When you click on a Google AdWord, a cookie is placed on your computer for conversion tracking purposes. Such cookies expire after 30 days, contain no personal data and are, therefore, not used for personal identification.
When you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, it allows Google and us to recognize that you have clicked on the ad and were transferred to a specific page. Each Google AdWords client receives a different cookie. Therefore, no possibilities exist that cookies can be monitored through the web pages of an AdWords client.
The information gathered with the conversion cookie is intended to compile conversion statistics for those AdWords clients who have subscribed to conversion tracking. Clients learn the total number of users that have clicked on the ad and were transferred to a specific tagged page. However, they contain no information with which users could be personally identified.
If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can set your browser software to not store cookies (deactivation option). You will not be added to the tracking statistics. Additional information as well as Google’s data protection statement can be found here: http://www.google.de/policies/privacy/
Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, an analyzing service of Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer which allow an analysis of your website visit. Information regarding your website use is gathered by the cookie and is usually transferred to and stored on a server at Google in the USA. If this website has activated making IP addresses anonymous, Google will abridge your IP address within members of the European Union or other states within the European economic zone that are signatories to the agreement. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to Google in the USA and be abridged there. At the request of the owner of this website, Google will use such information in order to analyze website use, to compile reports regarding website activity and to provide additional services to the owner of this website. The IP address supplied by your browser in connection with Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. You may prevent the storing of cookies by changing your browser settings, but you need to be aware that it is possible that you will not be able to fully use all of the functions of this website. Additionally, you may prevent the collection of website use data by the cookie (including your IP address) and the processing of such information by Google by downloading and installing the following available browser plug-in [http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de].
Use of Facebook Plug-Ins
These internet pages use plug-ins of the social network facebook.com which is operated by Facebook, Inc., 1601 S. California Ave., Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). If you click on one of our pages containing such plug-in, a connection to Facebook servers is created through a message to your browser. This will tell the Facebook server which one of our pages you have visited. If you are logged in as a member of Facebook, this information is added to your Facebook account. When using the plug-in function (for instance, clicking the “Like” button or entering a comment) that information will also be added to your Facebook account. This can be avoided only by logging off your Facebook account prior to using the plug-in. Further information regarding Facebook’s collection and use of data, your rights and your options regarding maintaining your privacy can be found in the data security policies of Facebook.
Use of Twitter Plug-Ins
The functions of Twitter services are part of our website. Twitter is a social media portal of Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom Street, Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107 (USA).
We use Twitter plug-ins. If you visit one of our pages that contain such plug-in, there will be an interchange of data with Twitter’s servers in the USA.
In case of interactions which are possible with various Twitter plug-ins, your information will be collected and transmitted to and stored by Twitter. If you are also a member of Twitter and logged in at the time you are using the plug-in, the information about your website visit will be collected, merged with your Twitter account and be made visible to other users.
If you do not wish Twitter to merge the information with your Twitter account, you need to log out of your Twitter account prior to using our website. Further information regarding the collection and use of data by Twitter can be seen here: https://twitter.com/privacy
