We would like to point out that there are security gaps in Internet-based data transmission and that complete protection against access by third parties is therefore impossible.

Cookies

We use so-called cookies on our website to recognise multiple use of our offer by the same user/internet connection owner. Cookies are small text files that your internet browser stores on your computer. They serve to optimise our internet presence and our offers. These are mostly so-called "session cookies", which are deleted again after the end of your visit.
In some cases, however, these cookies provide information to automatically recognise you. This recognition is based on the IP address stored in the cookies. The information obtained in this way is used to optimise our offers and to provide you with easier access to our site.
You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

Server data

For technical reasons, the following data, among others, which your internet browser transmits to us or to our web space provider, is recorded (so-called server log files):

- Browser type and version
- Operating system used
- Website from which you are visiting us (referrer URL)
- Website you are visiting
- date and time of your access
- Your Internet Protocol (IP) address.

This anonymous data is stored separately from any personal data you may have provided and thus does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about a specific person. They are evaluated for statistical purposes in order to optimise our website and our offers.

Contact possibility

On our website, we offer you the opportunity to contact us by e-mail and/or via a contact form. In this case, the information provided by the user will be stored for the purpose of processing the contact. The data will not be passed on to third parties. The data collected in this way is also not compared with data that may be collected by other components of our site.

Use of Google Analytics with anonymisation function

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter "Google", on our website. Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site.
The information generated by these cookies, such as the time, place and frequency of your website visit, including your IP address, is transmitted to Google in the USA and stored there.
We use Google Analytics with the addition "_gat._anonymizeIp" on our website. In this case, your IP address will already be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area and thus anonymised.
Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of our website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf.
Google will not, according to its own information, associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

Furthermore, Google offers a deactivation add-on for the most common browsers, which gives you more control over what data is collected by Google about the websites you visit. The add-on tells the JavaScript (ga.js) of Google Analytics that no information about the website visit should be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, the Google Analytics browser deactivation add-on does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analytics services we may use. For more information on how to install the browser add-on, please click on the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

Use of YouTube components with extended data protection mode

On our website we use components (videos) of the company YouTube, LLC 901 Cherry Ave., 94066 San Bruno, CA, USA, a Google Inc. company, Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

In doing so, we use the option " - extended data protection mode - " provided by YouTube.

When you visit a page that has an embedded video, a connection is established to the YouTube servers and the content is displayed on the website by informing your browser.

According to YouTube's information, in " - extended data protection mode -" only data is transmitted to the YouTube server, in particular which of our Internet pages you have visited when you watch the video. If you are logged in to YouTube at the same time, this information will be assigned to your YouTube member account. You can prevent this by logging out of your member account before visiting our website.

Using Jetpack with wordpress.com STATS

We use the Jetpack component of Automattic Inc., 132 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, CA 94107, United States of America, on our website using the technology of Quantcast Corp., 201 Third Street, 2nd Floor, San Francisco, CA 94103, United States of America. Each time you visit our site, cookies are used to collect and store web analytics data in the United States. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in the cache of the visitor's Internet browser to enable the recognition of the visitor's Internet browser. The IP address is anonymised immediately after processing but before it is stored. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

The collection and use of data by the Jetpack component can be objected to with effect for the future if you set an opt-out cookie in your browser via the http://www.quantcast.com/opt-out page. If you should delete all cookies of your browser, the process must be repeated.

Use of Slideshare

We use components of the provider Slideshare.com on our website. This service is provided by SlideShare Inc., 1 Montgomery St., Suite 1300, San Francisco, CA 94104, and is integrated into our website using a so-called 2-click solution. By simply visiting our site, no personal data is passed on to the provider Slideshare.com. Only if the start of the components of the provider Slideshare.com is manually triggered by you, personal data will be transmitted to Slideshare.com, Google Analytics and ComScore and stored in the USA. Furthermore, a cookie is set in your browser. We have no influence whatsoever on the data collected by the provider Slideshare.com and its data processing procedures. We are also not aware of the full extent of the data collection, its purposes or any storage period specified by Slideshare.com. Further information on this can be found at http://www.slideshare.net/privacy.

ComScore (Corporate Headquarters Reston, 11950 Democracy Drive, Suite 600, Reston, VA 20190) stores the data thus obtained in the form of a "user profile". ComScore evaluates this "user profile" for the purpose of providing needs-based advertising and/or market research. You have the right to object to the creation and storage of these user profiles by ComScore. To exercise this right of objection, you must contact comScore, Inc., 11950 Democracy Drive, Suite 600, Reston, VA 20190. Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by comScore can be found at http://www.comscore.com/ger/Ueber_Uns/Datenschutz.

Use of Google Adwords

We also use the Google advertising tool "Google-Adwords" to advertise our website. As part of this, we use the "Conversion Tracking" analysis service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter "Google". If you have accessed our website via a Google advertisement, a cookie will be stored on your computer. Cookies are small text files that your internet browser stores on your computer. These so-called "conversion cookies" lose their validity after 30 days and do not serve to identify you personally. If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognise that you, as a user, have clicked on one of our ads placed with Google and have been redirected to our site.

The information obtained with the help of the "conversion cookies" is used by Google to create visit statistics for our website. These statistics tell us the total number of users who clicked on our ad and which pages of our website were subsequently accessed by the respective user. However, we or other advertisers via "Google Adwords" do not receive any information with which users can be personally identified.

You can prevent the installation of the "conversion cookies" by setting your browser accordingly, for example by using a browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies or specifically blocks only the cookies from the domain "googleadservices.com".

You can find Google's privacy policy in this regard at the following link: https://services.google.com/sitestats/de.html

We would like to point out that you have the right to correct incorrect data or delete personal data, provided that this claim does not conflict with a legal obligation to retain data.
