SSL encryption

This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons, and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests you send to us as a site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

 

Use of Google Analytics

(1) This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so called „cookies", which are textiles saved on the computer of the user in order to analyse the usage of the website. The information created by the Cookie concerning your use of this website is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, in the case of activation of IP anonymisation on this website, your IP address will be previously abbreviated by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other Contracting States of the Treaty on the European Economic Area. The full IP address will only be transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there in exceptional cases. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to produce reports concerning the website activities for the website operator and to produce additional services associated with the use of the Internet and website.

(2) The IP address sent by your browser within the context of Google Analytics will not be combined with other data of Google.

(3) You can prevent the cookies from being stored by means of an appropriate setting in your browser software; however we must point out that in this case not all functions of the website will be available to you in their full capacity. Furthermore, you can prevent the storing of data generated by the cookies and related to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) to Google and processing of these data by Google by downloading and installing the available browser plugin at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

(4) This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. As a result, IP addresses are further processed in the abbreviated form, so that a personal correlation can be ruled out. As far as the data collected about you is personal, it will be excluded immediately and the personal data will be deleted immediately.

(5) We use Google Analytics to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website. We can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for purposes of advertising, market research and/or the demand-oriented design of its website.
