Data Privacy

In accordance with the Federal Privacy and Data Protection and Telemedia Acts, this privacy statement is to inform the users of this website on the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the operator of this website.
Operating this website, we take the privacy protection of all personal data very seriously. All personal information will be treated confidentially and in accordance with the law, as explained in this Privacy Statement.
Of course, our website can be used by you without providing personal information. However, if you are asked for personal information such as name, address or e-mail at any point, this will be done on a voluntary basis. We will never share your personal information with third parties without your explicit consent.
Data transmission on the Internet, e.g. via e-mail, can always cause security vulnerabilities. Absolute protection of your data on the Internet is not possible.
Having said that, the following paragraphs will inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the collection, use and processing of personal data by the provider.

To run this website, the website operator automatically collects and stores data in server log files, which are transmitted to us by your browser. These data include:

• Visited website
• browser type / browser version
• Operating system of the computer
• Referrer URL
• Host name of the accessing computer
• Amount of data sent in bytes
• Source / reference from which you came to the site
• Used IP address
• Time of the server request

These are no personal data. They only serve statistical purposes in order to optimize our website and our offers. These data are not merged or combined with any other data from any other source. Should specific indications of illicit use come to our notice, we reserve the right to review these data at a later date.

Cookies

Many websites use cookies. Cookies do no harm to your computer. They do not contain any viruses nor any other malware. They serve to make Internet offers more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and are used by your browser.
We usually use so-called “session cookies”. These are automatically deleted after leaving our website. Other cookies remain stored on your computer until you delete them. These cookies help to recognize your computer on your next visit. Using the browser settings, you can specify that you are informed about new cookies and asked to accept them in every single case. Likewise, you can exclude the acceptance of any cookies or just particular kinds of them. You can also enable all cookies to be automatically deleted on closing your browser. If cookies are generally disabled, the functionality of our website may be impaired.

Unsolicited promotional emails

We hereby expressly prohibit the use of the contact data published in the Legal Note of this website for the purpose of sending unsolicited advertising and information materials. Should we find ourselves in receipt of unsolicited advertising information e.g. by way of spam e-mails, the operators of the website reserve the right to take legal action against the sender of the unsolicited advertising information.

Use of Google Maps

On our site, we use “Google Maps” of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, henceforth called “Google”.

Whenever Google Maps is used, Google sets a cookie to process user settings and data when viewing the page with the Google Maps component integrated. This cookie is usually not deleted by closing the browser but will only expire after a certain period of time unless it is manually deleted by you.

If you disagree with Google processing your data, you may disable the Google Maps service, thus preventing the transmission of data to Google. To do this, disable the Java Script feature in your browser. Please note, however, that in this case you will not be able to use Google Maps at all or only to a limited extent.

The use of Google Maps and information obtained through Google Maps is subject to the Google Terms of Use (cf. http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/terms/regional.html) and the additional terms and conditions for “Google Maps” (cf. https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/help/terms_maps.html).

Contact opportunities

On our website you have the opportunity to contact us by e-mail and / or via a contact form. The information provided by the contact will be stored for the purpose of processing the request received. The related data will not be passed on to third parties. The data collected will not be collated with data which may have been collected by other components of our site.

Compliance with privacy and data protection laws

Our privacy policy may be adjusted at any time to ensure full compliance with changing legal requirements or to implement changes to our service portfolio, e.g. in the introduction of new services. Alterations of our privacy policy will take effect immediately with their publication in this space without express prior notice to users of our website.
