COLLECTING AND PROCESSING DATA

As a general rule, you will be able to use our website without entering personal data. If any personal data is collected (e.g. name, address, e-mail address), this will occur on a discretionary basis; these data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent. We hereby remind users that data transfer on the internet (e.g. e-mail communication) may be subject to gaps in security and that it is impossible to offer complete protection of data transferred against third-party access. Each time our site or a file stored on it is accessed, data about the access is logged; this log is used for our own internal system management and for statistical purposes. The data logged are: name of the file accessed, date and time of access, bytes sent, access confirmation, the browser used and the domain from which the request is issued. We also log the IP address of the computer making the request. Personal data beyond this scope is only collected when website users and/or customers offer information voluntarily – e.g. in sending an enquiry, registering, concluding a contract, or through their browser settings. Our website uses cookies. Cookies are text files sent when the website is accessed and temporarily saved on the hard-drive of the user and/or customer visiting the site. If the corresponding web server is then accessed again by the user and/or customer, the use’s browser sends the cookie received back to the server, allowing the server to evaluate the information contained in this procedure in a variety of ways: by way of example, cookies can be used to control how advertising modules on the website behave or to simplify navigation for the user. If users and/or customers wish to prevent cookies being used, they can do so by changing the settings in the browser(s) installed on their computers (the browser is the program used to open and display web pages – Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Safari, etc.). Our website may include third-party services and content such as videos from YouTube or imaging generated by Google Maps; in such cases, the providers of these services are able to access the IP addresses of the users of our website as they would be unable to display their content in users’ browsers without them. IP addresses are required to display such content. Although we make every effort to offer only services from providers who only use the IP address to serve their content, we have no influence on whether these third parties retain IP addresses for purposes such as statistical analysis; we will inform you of any such use of which we are aware.


WEB ANALYTICS

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (hereinafter “Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies” (see above), which are text files saved on your computer in order to allow Google Analytics to evaluate the way you use this website. The information produced by the cookie about your use of the site is generally sent to a server run by Google in the USA and stored there. If you activate IP anonymisation on this website, however, Google will shorten your IP address before storing it in if you access the site from within the European Union or other states who have signed the European Economic Area contracts. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The operator of this website has requested that Google use this information to evaluate your use of the website in order compile reports about on-site activity and to provide the operator of the website with other services in relation to using the site and the internet. The IP address transferred via your browser as part of Google Analytics is not stored with other Google data. You can prevent cookies from being saved by selecting the corresponding settings in your browser software, but we would like to remind you that doing so could lead to you being unable to use the complete functionality of this website. You can also prevent the data produced by the cookie and your use of the website (including your IP address) from being collected and processed by Google by downloading and installing this browser plug-in. You can prevent Google Analytics collecting data by clicking on this disable Google Analytics link to download an opt-out cookie which will stop your data being collected on this site in future. Further information on terms and conditions of use and data protection can be found http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html and https://www.google.de/intl/us/policies/. We would like to inform you that Google Analytics on this website uses the gat._anonymizelp() code line to provide IP masking (i.e. anonymised IP address collation).

Data for billing and accounting purposes are, however, not affected by requests for deletion. In some cases, we may be allowed to give information about user data if we are ordered to by the relevant authorities for the purposes of criminal justice, defence, military intelligence or secret service operations, and in cases in which it is necessary to exercise intellectual property rights.
