The operators of this website take protection of your personal data extremely seriously. We treat your personal data as confidential and comply with the data protection legislation and this privacy policy.

It is generally possible to use our website without disclosing personal data. Where personal data (for example name, postal or e-mail address) is collected on our website, this is voluntary insofar as is possible. This data is never disclosed to third parties without your express consent.

We would like to point out that the transmission of electronic data (e.g., communication via e-mail) is prone to security vulnerabilities. A perfectly consistent protection of this data against third parties is not possible.

Cookies

Cookies are small files which allow to store information on the client computer. This information is device oriented and is used to create better usability, but also to further identify the user (i.e. to enable auto-login). Cookies can also be used to create statistics about the usage of the website. These statistics will also be used to enhance the usability, stability and accessibility of the service offered. These cookies will be gathered and used according to article 6, P1 lit f GDPDR.

As a user you can control the use of cookies. Most browsers have options which can be used to disable cookies, or to control the way they are stored. If you choose to disable or restrict the use of cookies, the website may not be displayed correctly or may not be accessible in the best way or not at all. To be able to control the use of cookies for online advertisements you can use the (US based) web page http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or (EU based) http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices/.

Google Analytics

This web page uses Google Analytics. This is a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. („Google“). Google Analytics uses „cookies“, small files that will be stored on the client computer with information about the usage of the website. This information will be analyzed. The processing is usually performed on servers operated by Google and located in the USA. This precludes the transfer of the data to the USA.

die firma uses IP anonymization, meaning that if the user’s IP address is transferred into countries of the EU (or associated contract states), it will be anonymized (i.e. by truncation). Only in very few cases the full IP addressed will be transferred (also into USA). Google will analyze the transferred data on behalf of die firma to create reports about the website usage and to perform additional services for the website owner.

Your IP address will not be referred or cross-linked with other data Google may have about you. You can disable the use of cookies (see section cookies). You can disable the storage, transfer or processing of your data by Google by downloading a plugin for your browser. This will disable Gooogle Analytics if you use the browser on which you installed the plugin.

The plugin can be found here: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

As an alternative for the plugin you can use this address to install a specific "opt-out" cookie. Google analytics will check for the presence of this cookie and, if found, will not transfer the data. if you disable cookies or deleted this particular cookie, you will need to visit the link again.

Facebook Social Plugin

This website uses social plugins ("plugins") from facebook.com. This service is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Irland ("Facebook"). You can identify this plugin by the means of the Facebook logo (white "f" on a blue square, the words "Like", "Gefällt mir" or a "thumbs-up" symbol). For an up-to-date list of Facebook plugins see the page https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

If you access a web page with this plugin, the browser will establish a connection to a Facebook server. This server will then transfer data onto your browser. die firma has no influence on the data transferred and inorms users to the best of its knowledge:

Facebook will have information about the fact that a specific IP-address uses this website. Also, if the user is simultaneously logged onto Facebook, Facebook will link this data with the user’s Facebook account.

If the user further interacts with the plugin (i.e. by pressing "Like"), this information will be transferred to Facebook and stored and processed there. If the user is not a member of Facebook, only the IP address will be stored. Facebook announced that within Germany, only anonymized IP addresses will be transferred and stored.

To get information about the means and procedures of the processing of information by Facebook and to find out about ways to disable or limit that usage, please see Facebook’s data privacy information: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

If the user is a Facebook member and does not want to have the information gathered and cross-linked with his account, he/she must log out of Facebook before using this website.
Further data privacy information and opt-out options can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads.
