Privacy Policy

Every access to our website and every request of data and files on our website are recorded. The storage of this information serves internal system-related and statistical purposes only. The recorded information includes the designation of the file requested, the date and time of the request, the web browser, and the IP addresses of the requesting computers. Further personal data are only recorded if you provide this information voluntarily, for example as part of an enquiry or registration process. We only use personal data that you have shared with us for responding to your enquiries, for the processing of contracts concluded with you, and for technical administration. We only pass on this information to third parties if it is required for the processing of contracts or for billing purposes, or if you have given express prior consent. Your stored personal data will be deleted if you withdraw your consent for their storage.

Please note that the transmission of data on the Internet (communication by email, for example) can be subject to security risks. It is not possible to completely protect data from unauthorised access by third parties.

We hereby expressly prohibit the use of our contact data, published as part of our obligation to publish a legal notice, for sending advertising and information materials that we have not explicitly requested. The operators of this website expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event that unsolicited advertising information is sent, for example in the form of spam mail.

Privacy policy for the use of Google +1

Collection and transfer of information

Our website uses the +1 button provided by the social network Google Plus, which is operated by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA), hereinafter referred to as “Google”. This button can be identified by the “+1” icon on a white or coloured background. By using the Google +1 button, you can publish information worldwide. The Google +1 button enables you and other users to receive personalised content from Google and our partners. Every time you visit one of the pages of our website containing the +1 button, your web browser establishes a direct connection with the Google servers. The content of the +1 button is directly transmitted from Google to your web browser and then embedded into the website by the browser. We therefore have no influence on the scope of the data that Google collects using the +1 button. Google stores the information that you have given a “+1” for content, in addition to your IP address and information on the website that you were viewing when you clicked on the +1 button. Your “+1” recommendations can be displayed as references together with your profile name and photo in Google services (such as in search results or your Google profile) or at other locations on websites and in Internet advertisements.

Google records information on your “+1” activities to improve Google services for you and other users. For information on the exact purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Google as well as your associated rights and settings options for protecting your privacy, please refer to the terms of the Google Privacy Policy regarding the +1 button.

To be able to use the Google +1 button, you need to have a public Google profile that is visible worldwide and contains at least the name chosen for the profile. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name can also replace another name that you have used when sharing content via your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be displayed to users who know your e-mail address or have received other identifying information from you.

Use of collected information

In addition to the intended uses described above, the information that you provide is also used in accordance the applicable terms of the Google Privacy Policy. Google may publish aggregate statistics about the “+1” activities of users or may pass these statistics on to users and partners, such as publishers, advertisers or linked websites. If you are a Google Plus member and do not want Google to collect information on you via our website and link this information with the membership data about you which Google has stored, then you must log out of Google Plus before visiting our visiting our website.
