Privacy statement

Data protection

The operator of these pages takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. Your personal data is handled confidentially and in accordance with both the statutory data protection regulations and this privacy statement.

Generally speaking, our website can be used without providing any personal data. If personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail addresses) is collected on our pages, this always occurs, as far as possible, on a voluntary basis. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

We wish to point out that the transfer of data via the Internet (e.g. when communicating via e-mail) may involve security vulnerabilities. It is not possible to completely protect data against third-party access.

Cookies

Some of our web pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and also do not contain any viruses. Cookies help to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files, which are saved on your computer and which your browser saves.

We mainly use so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies are stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser the next time you visit our page.

You can configure your browser to inform you when cookies are created and only permit cookies in individual cases, to not accept cookies in certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when you close your browser. Deactivating cookies may restrict the functionality of this website.

The provider of the pages collects and automatically saves information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transfers to us. This information consists of:

  • the browser type and browser version
  • the operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer

This data cannot be attributed to specific persons. This data will not be combined with other data sources. We reserve the right to subsequently evaluate this data if there is any concrete evidence indicating unlawful use.

Google Analytics

This website uses the functions of the Google Analytics web analytics service. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". Cookies are text files, which are saved on your computer and which make it possible to analyse your use of the website. In general, the information generated by the cookie relating to your use of this website is transferred to a Google server in the USA and saved there.

IP anonymisation

We have activated the IP anonymisation function on this website. As a result, your IP address will be shortened by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transferred to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information to analyse your use of the website in order to generate reports on website activities for the website operator and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with the use of the website and the Internet. Google will not combine the IP address transferred by your browser in connection with Google Analytics with other data.

Google Maps API

This website uses Google Maps ("Google Maps"), a web mapping service of Google, Inc. ("Google"). In order to display the accessed maps to you, your IP address is collected by Google and, if applicable, forwarded by Google to servers in the USA where it is saved.

XING

Our website uses functions of the XING network. The provider is XING AG, Dammtorstrasse 29-32, 20354 Hamburg, Germany.

SSL encryption

For reasons of security and to safeguard the transfer of confidential content such as the content of the requests you send to us as the site operator, we use SSL encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that "http://" switches to "https://" in the browser's address bar and a lock icon appears there. If SSL encryption is activated, the data, which you send to us, cannot be read by third parties.

Right to information, deletion, blocking

You have the right, at any time and at no charge, to receive information concerning your personal data that is saved, its origin and recipient(s), the purpose of data processing as well as right to the correction, blocking or deletion of said data.

Objection to promotional e-mails

We hereby expressly object to the use of the contact data published in connection with the German obligation to provide publication details under the Imprint by third parties in order to forward unsolicited advertising and informational material. The operators of these pages expressly reserve the right of legal recourse should unsolicited advertising material such as spam e-mails be transmitted to them.
