Google Analytics
If you have given your consent, this website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google LLC, which includes the mode of operation. This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus analyze the activities of a user across devices. Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, if IP anonymization is enabled on this website, Google will previously truncate your IP address within member states of the European Union or other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. We would like to point out that Google Analytics on this website has been extended to include IP anonymisation in order to guarantee anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google. You can find more detailed information on terms of use and data protection at <a href=”https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html” target=”_blank”>https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html</a> bzw. unter <a href=”https://policies.google.com/?hl=de” target=”_blank”>https://policies.google.com/?hl=de</a>.</p> for processing purposes.

SSL encryption
In order to protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption procedures (e. g. SSL) via HTTPS.

Newsletter/ Information by e-mail
On the basis of your explicit consent, we will regularly send you our newsletter or comparable information by e-mail to your specified e-mail address.
Your e-mail address is sufficient for receiving the newsletter. When you register to receive our newsletter, the data you provide will be used exclusively for this purpose. Subscribers may also be notified by email of circumstances relevant to the Service or registration (for example, changes in the newsletter offering or technical circumstances).
For an effective registration we need a valid e-mail address. In order to verify that a registration is actually carried out by the owner of an e-mail address, we use the “double opt-in”; procedure. For this purpose, we log the order of the newsletter, the dispatch of a confirmation e-mail and the receipt of the reply requested herewith. Further data will not be collected. The data will be used exclusively for the newsletter dispatch and will not be passed on to third parties.
You can revoke your consent to the storage of your personal data and its use for newsletter dispatch at any time. In every newsletter you will find a corresponding link. You can also unsubscribe directly from this website at any time or inform us of your wish via the contact details given at the end of this data protection notice.

If you contact us with any questions by e-mail or contact form, give us your voluntary consent for the purpose of contacting. For this purpose it is necessary to provide a valid e-mail address. This is used to assign the query and then answer it. The specification of further data is optional. The information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing your inquiry and for possible follow-up questions. Personal data will be deleted automatically after you have completed your request.

Use of script libraries (Google Web Fonts)
In order to present our content correctly and graphically appealing across all browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google Web Fonts (https://www. google. com/webfonts/;) on this website. Google Web Fonts are transferred to your browser’s cache to avoid multiple loading. If your browser does not support Google Web Fonts or does not allow access, content will be displayed in a default font.
Calling script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library operator. It is theoretically possible – but currently also unclear whether and, if so, for what purposes – for the operators of such libraries to collect data.
The privacy policy of the library operator Google can be found here: https://www. google. com/policies/privacy/

Using Adobe Typekit
We use Adobe Typekit for the visual design of our website. Typekit is a service provided by Adobe Systems Software Ireland Ltd. which gives us access to a font library. To incorporate the fonts we use, your browser must connect to an Adobe server in the USA and download the font required for our website. This will tell Adobe that your IP address has been used to access our website. For more information about Adobe Typekit, please see the Adobe Privacy Notice available at: www. adobe. com/privacy/typekit. html
Use of Google Maps
This website uses Google Maps API to visually display geographic information. When Google Maps is used, Google also collects, processes and uses data on the use of the map functions by visitors. For more information about data processing by Google, please refer to the Google Privacy Notice. There you can also change your personal data protection settings in the data protection centre.
Detailed instructions on how to manage your own data related to Google products can be found here.

Embedded YouTube videos
On some of our websites we embed Youtube videos. Operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection to Youtube servers is established. Youtube will be informed which pages you visit. If you are logged into your Youtube account, Youtube can personally assign your surfing behavior to you. You can prevent this by logging out of your Youtube account beforehand.
If a Youtube video is started, the provider uses cookies that collect information about user behavior.
Those who have deactivated the saving of cookies for the Google Ad program will not have to reckon with such cookies when watching Youtube videos. However, Youtube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you wish to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in the browser.
Further information on data protection at “Youtube”; can be found in the provider’s data protection declaration at: https://www. google. de/intl/de/policies/privacy/

Social plugins
On our websites social plugins of the providers listed below are used. You can recognize the plugins by the fact that they are marked with the corresponding logo.
These plugins may be used to send information, including personal data, to the service provider and may be used by the service provider. We prevent the unconscious and unwanted collection and transfer of data to the service provider through a 2-click solution. To activate a desired social plugin, it must first be activated by clicking on the corresponding button. Only when the plugin is activated will the collection of information and its transmission to the service provider be triggered. We do not collect any personal data ourselves by means of the social plugins or through their use.
We have no influence on which data an activated plugin collects and how it is used by the provider. At present, it must be assumed that a direct connection to the provider’s services will be developed and that at least the IP address and device-related information will be collected and used. It is also possible that the service providers may attempt to store cookies on the computer used. Please refer to the data protection information of the respective service provider to find out which concrete data are collected and how they are used. Note: If you are logged in to Facebook at the same time, Facebook can identify you as a visitor to a specific page.
We have included the social media buttons of the following companies on our website:

Google AdWords
Our website uses Google Conversion Tracking. If you have reached our website via an advertisement placed by Google, Google Adwords places a cookie on your computer. The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ad placed by Google. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages on our site and the cookie has not expired, we and Google may recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was directed to that page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, you will not receive any information that personally identifies users.
If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can reject the setting of a cookie required for this – for example via browser settings that generally deactivate the automatic setting of cookies or set your browser so that cookies are blocked by the domain “googleleadservices. com”;.
Please note that you may not delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not wish to record measurement data. If you have deleted all your cookies in your browser, you must set the respective opt-out cookie again.

Use of Google Remarketing
This website uses the remarketing function of Google Inc. This function is used to present interest-related advertisements to website visitors within the Google advertising network. A so-called “cookie”; is stored in the browser of the website visitor, which makes it possible to recognise the visitor when he visits websites belonging to the Google advertising network. On these pages, advertisements can be presented to the visitor, which refer to contents, which the visitor called up before on web pages, which use the Remarketing function of Google.
According to its own information, Google does not collect any personal data during this process. However, if you do not want Google’s remarketing feature to work, you can opt-out of it by setting your preferences at http://www. google. com/settings/ads . Alternatively, you can disable the use of cookies for interest-based advertising through the Advertising Network Initiative by following the instructions at http://www. networkadvertising. org/managing/opt_out. asp.
Changes to our privacy policy
We reserve the right to adapt this data protection declaration so that it always corresponds to the current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e. g. when introducing new services. Your renewed visit will then be subject to the new data protection declaration.

Questions to the Data Protection Officer
