The use of this website is regularly possible without giving personal data. Should such personal data nevertheless be collected on this website, this is done in the form of voluntary data provision by the user. Personal data will not be passed on to third parties unless the user has given his express consent.
If personal data is collected on our websites, this data is always collected in accordance with the data protection laws of the Federal Republic of Germany. Insofar as personal data is collected, you can see from this privacy statement the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data.
Please note that despite the greatest care, data transmission on the Internet is always associated with risks based on security gaps. The unrestricted protection of data is therefore impossible.
Who we are
When you access our website, your browser automatically transmits data to our web server. The subject of this transmission is anonymous access data without personal reference, such as date and time, browser type, quantity and type of data retrieved and your IP address. These data are stored separately from any other data collected during your use of our website. This data cannot be used to identify a specific person. The collection of this data takes place solely for the purpose of recording user behavior and for statistical purposes. After a corresponding evaluation a deletion of the data is arranged.
For purposes of quality assurance and expansion of the functional scope of our Internet offer, we use so-called cookies on our web pages. These are text files that are stored on the user’s computer. Cookies can be used to determine the number of page visits. We use this information exclusively to improve our websites.
When establishing, structuring the content or changing a contractual relationship between you and us, we collect and use personal data from you, so-called inventory data, as necessary.
As a rule, we do not pass on or provide information to third parties. By order of the responsible authorities, we are obliged to provide information on personal data insofar as it is necessary for the purposes of criminal prosecution, averting danger or fulfilling other statutory tasks.
If necessary, we collect and use so-called usage data from you. This is personal data that enables the use of our website and billing. This data includes both the time criteria for your use of our website and the scope of use and your identification features.
We would like to point out that we are permitted to generate user profiles, i.e. compiled data on the progress of visits to our pages, for advertising purposes, for market research purposes and for the design of our Internet offering. These user profiles do not provide any information about your person and are not merged with any other data collected by us, so that personal identification cannot take place through the merging of different data. You have the right to object to such use of your data at any time.
Right to information
We draw your attention to the fact that you have the right to request information from us about the data stored by you and in the event of inaccuracy of the data to have it blocked, deleted or corrected. The provision of information is possible both by telephone and electronically.
This site uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”).

Using Facebook Social Plugins
This offer uses social plugins (“Plugins”) of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”). The plugins can be recognized by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on blue tile). The list and appearance of the Facebook Social Plugins can be seen here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/
When a user accesses a website from this offer that contains such a plugin, their browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook’s servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated into the website by it. The provider therefore has no influence on the extent of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore informs the user according to his level of knowledge:
By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has called up the corresponding page of the offer. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. When users interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the Like button or commenting, the corresponding information is transferred directly from your browser to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, it is still possible for Facebook to find out his IP address and save it. According to Facebook, only an anonymous IP address is stored in Germany.
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as the relevant rights and setting options to protect the privacy of users can be found in Facebook’s data protection information: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/
If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him via this offer and link it with his Facebook stored member data, he must log out of Facebook before visiting the website. Further settings and objections to the use of data for advertising purposes are possible within the Facebook profile settings: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads=ads.
Should changes be made to our data protection declaration in the future, the changes will always be found on these pages.
