Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”- text files that are saved on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie concerning your usage of the website is normally transferred to a Google server in the USA and saved there. Prior to this, due to the activation of IP anonymization on these websites, your IP address is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states party to the agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases the full IP address will be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the website operator to evaluate website usage, to compile reports about website activity, and to provide further services associated with the usage of the website and the internet to the website operator. The IP address transferred from your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. You can prevent cookies from being saved using the corresponding setting in your browser software; however, please note that if you do so, you might not be able to use all the functions of our website. Furthermore, the storing of information generated by the cookie that is related to your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google and the processing of this information through Google can be prevented by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link:

In addition, or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can disable tracking by Google Analytics on our website when you click on this link. An opt-out cookie will then be installed on your device. Recording of data by Google Analytics on this website and for this browser will then be prevented for as long as this cookie remains installed on your browser.

Social bookmarks

Social bookmarks are internet bookmarks which allow users of such service to collect links and news items. These are merely integrated as links on our website to the corresponding services. After clicking on the embedded graphic, you will be forwarded to the website of the respective provider. This means user information will only be transferred to the respective provider from that point onwards. For information on how your personal information is handled when you use these websites, please consult the provider’s respective data protection regulations.

Like many other websites, we also use so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. That way, we automatically receive specific data such as your IP address, the web browser you use, the operating system on your computer and your internet connection.

Cookies cannot be used to start programs or to transfer viruses onto a computer. Using the information contained in the cookies, we can make navigation easier for you and ensure the correct display of our website.

The data recorded by us will not be passed on to third parties in any case, nor will it be linked to your personal data without your consent.

Likewise, you have the right to rectify, block or – aside from the mandatory storage of data for business processing – delete your personal information.

So that data blocking can be considered at any time, this data must be kept in a sealed file for monitoring purposes. You may also request the data to be deleted, insofar as there is no legal filing obligation. If such an obligation applies, we will block your information upon your request.

You may amend or withdraw your consent with future effect by notifying us accordingly.
