In order to enhance our offerings, we analyse only statistical data that cannot be traced back to you personally.

Web analysis service: Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a Web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies” – text files which are saved on your computer enabling an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie on your use of this website is usually sent to a Google server in the USA where it is stored. If IP anonymisation of this website is activated, your IP address is however abbreviated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website in order to compile reports on website activities and provide the website operator with other services associated with use of the website and the Internet. The IP address supplied by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. You can make the appropriate settings in your browser software to prevent cookies from being stored; however, we draw your attention to the fact that you may not be able to use all of the features of the website in such a case.
You can also prevent data (incl. your IP address) generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website from being recorded and processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de verfügbare Browser-Plugin herunterladen und installieren.

More information on conditions of use and data protection available at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html bzw. unter www.google.de/intl/de/policies/. We draw your attention to the fact that Google Analytics has been extended to include the "gat._anonymizeIp();" code on this website in order to guarantee anonymised collation of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). We also use Google Analytics to evaluate data from AdWords and Double-Click-Cookie for statistical purposes. If you do not wish this, you can deactivate this feature via the Ad Preferences Manager (http://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/?hl=de).
No data transmission to third parties. Your data will not be transmitted to third parties unless we are legally obligated to do so. In the case that external service providers come in contact with your personal information we take legal, technical, and organisation measures to ensure that such providers adhere to the requirements set forth in data privacy laws and we monitor this regularly.

When a request is submitted in writing or in text form, we will at any time inform you of any information relating to your person that we have stored. Please contact us directly via email for this. Only data that we need to complete tasks in progress or assert our rights and claims and any information that we are legally required to retain is exempted from deletion.
