1.       Processing general information

When you visit our website, information of a general nature is automatically processed. This information (server log files) includes the type of web browser, the operating system used, your Internet Service Provider’s domain name, and similar information. This is purely information that cannot be associated with your identity. This information is technically required so that the information you have requested is delivered correctly, and must be made available whenever the Internet is used. We statistically evaluate anonymous information like this so that we can improve our Internet presence and the technology behind it.

2.       Commentary function / Blog

When users write a comment in the blog, the time it was written and the user name previously chosen by the website visitor are also stored. This is for our own security, because we may be held liable for any unlawful content on our website, even if it was provided by a user.

3.       Contact form

If you contact us by email or by using the contact form, your details will be stored in order to process your enquiry or for possible further questions.

4.       Services against payment

If you purchase services, further details may be required. To accept your order, we need the following details: Forename, surname, postal address, email address, phone number, birthdate, passport or identity number, information about your guarantor. In addition, we need your bank account details.

The use of the latest technology and encryption procedure ensures that your data are fully protected.

5.       Communication via e-mail

Communication via e-mail may entail security loopholes. Transmitted e-mails in unencrypted form carry the risk that the data may be intercepted and/or manipulated by third parties. If we receive an unencrypted e-mail from you, we will assume that we are also entitled to send an unencrypted reply by e-mail. We recommend as a matter of principle that messages be encrypted with well-established encryption standard. The transmission of confidential information by way of unencrypted e-mail therefore takes place at your own risk.

6.       Encryption

To protect your data during transfer, we use state-of-the-art encryption procedures (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.

7.       DATA FOR ANALYSIS, PUBLICITY AND RECOMMENDATION PURPOSES

7.1.        Cookies

Just as many other websites, we use so-called “Cookies“. Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a web server to your hard drive. As a result, we automatically receive certain data, such as IP address, browser used, operating system of your computer and your connection to the Internet. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Based on the information contained in the cookies we are able to make navigation easier facilitate the correct display of our website. In no event, will the information we collect be forwarded to third parties, nor do we create a link to personal data without your consent.

However, you can also view our website without cookies. Internet browsers are usually configured so that they accept cookies. You can prevent cookies from being saved on your end device by setting your browser to not accept cookies. Please use your browser’s help function to learn how to do this adjustment. If you choose not to accept cookies it may result in a reduced availability of the services provided on our website.

7.2.        Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files which are saved on your computer and enable analysis of the use of a website. Information on your use of this website generated by the cookie is transferred to a Google server in the USA and saved there. However, this website uses an extension for Google Analytics, (_anonymizeIp()), and therefore IP addresses are only processed further in truncated form in order to rule out any direct personal reference. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the United States and truncated there.

On instructions from the operator of this website, Google uses this information to evaluate your use of the website in order to compile reports on website activities for the website operator, and to provide additional services related to website and Internet use. Google will in no case connect your IP address to other data saved by Google. You can prevent the installation of cookies via the corresponding settings in your browser; however, you may not be able to take full advantage of all functions of this website in this case. You can counteract the saving and collection of data (including your IP address) with a plugin for your browser, here: Browser Add On to deactivate Google Analytics

Additionally, or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can deactivate tracking by Google Analytics on our website by clicking this Link. This will install an opt-out cookie on your machine. As long as this cookie remains installed in your browser, Google Analytics cannot receive any further data for this website and this browser.

7.3.        Use of Google Remarketing

This website uses the Remarketing function of Google Inc. (“Google”). With this function, the provider of the website can address the visitors of the website with target-oriented advertising, in which the visitors to the provider’s website are shown personalized advertisements when they visit other websites in Google’s advertising network. A cookie is installed in the website visitor’s browser, enabling him to be identified whenever he calls up a website that is part of the Google advertising network. On these websites, visitors may be shown advertisements related to contents which they called up on previous occasions on websites using the Remarketing function.

Google claims not to store personal data during this operation. You can permanently deactivate the use of cookies by Google by opening the following link: http://www.google.com/settings/ads. Alternatively, you can deactivate the use of cookies by third parties by visiting the deactivation page of the Network Advertising Initiative by following the instructions under: http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.

7.4.        Use of DoubleClick

DoubleClick is a service of Google Inc. (“Google”), 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). DoubleClick uses cookies (so-called “floodlights”) to offer you better and more relevant advertising. Cookies are often used to provide you with relevant advertising, improve reports on campaign performance, or to prevent you from seeing the same advertisement several times. For this purpose, DoubleClick assigns a pseudonymous ID to your browser. For example, this cookie ID helps DoubleClick to determine which advertisements should be kept in which browsers. If an advertisement is to be opened in a browser, DoubleClick can establish on the basis of the browser’s cookie ID which DoubleClick advertisements have already appeared in this particular browser. Thus, DoubleClick blocks advertisements that the user has already seen. By means of the cookie ID, DoubleClick can also record conversions related to advertising queries. That is for instance the case if you see a DoubleClick advertisement and later call up our website with the same browser and perform actions there.

DoubleClick floodlight cookies contain no personal details. The information generated by the cookie on the use of this website and on the delivery of advertising contents and the user’s IP address are sent to a Google server in the United States and stored there. Google may convey this information to its contractual partners. However, Google will not include your IP address with the other data about you that it already has. You can read more about data protection and cookies with Google here:

By using our website, you consent that Google may process the data it has collected about you and you consent to the manner in which the data are processed and with the purpose stated previously. Of course, you can prevent Google from collecting and processing the data kit has obtained about you by using the so-called DoubleClick DART cookies. DoubleClick has summarised how to do this on the following pages:

Alternatively, you can visit the following website and centrally set all blocks also for other tracking technologies:

Please note that you must perform this procedure separately for each browser that you use, and repeat it when you have deleted your cookies.

7.5.        Google Tag Manager:

Our website uses Google Tag Manager. With this service, website tags can be managed via a user interface. Google Tool Manager implements only tags. That means: No cookies are used and no personal data are captured. Google Tool Manager creates other tags that may include data. However, Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If deactivation is made at domain or cookie level, it remains active for all tracking tags if they are implemented with Google Tag Manager.

7.6.        Use of Add This

This website uses the social media plug-in called “Addthis“, offered by the company AddThis LLC, Inc. 8000 Westpark Drive, Suite 625, McLean, VA 2210, USA (AddThis LLC). With “AddThis“, AddThis LLC permits the joint use of so-called share buttons from various providers, via which users can recommend website contents and websites on the social media and tag them on various bookmark services. “AddThis“ can usually be identified by a white plus sign on an orange background. You can see a complete overview of the social media plug-ins that use “AddThis“ and how they appear under the following link: https://www.addthis.com/get/sharing.

If you call up one of our Internet pages that contain such a social media plug-in, your browser will connect directly with the servers of AddThis LLC. The contents of the “AddThis“ social media plug-in will be sent directly to your browser and included in the website. At the same time, AddThis LLC will be informed of the website you have called up and will place a cookie on your computer to permit re-identification the next time you visit that website. The information submitted by your browser (including your IP address) is sent to AddThis LLC and incorporated in an anonymised user profile there. This user profile serves as a basis on which to personalise the online offered you call up and adjust them to your interests.

You can find further details of the purpose and scope of the collection of data by AddThis LLC in the company’s privacy policy: http://addthis.com/privacy/privacy-policy.

If you do not want AddThis LLC to capture and store your data, you can block this for the future.  For this purpose you create a so-called opt-out cookie which you can download from:  http://www.addthis.com/privacy/opt-out. By means of suitable add-ons for your browser, you can also completely block the installation of social media plug-ins such as “AddThis“.

7.7.        Use of Google Translate

The automatic translation function in the sidebar of our website is performed by Google Translate, a third party provider over whom we have no influence. The computer-generated translations sometimes comply only approximately with the original content of our website.

The translations are not to be regarded as exact and may contain wrong expressions. We assume no guarantee for the correctness, reliability and validity of the information translated by this system, and accept no liability for any losses. Moreover, some applications, files and features such as graphics, photos and PDF’s cannot be translated.

Google captures, stores and processes information in order to provide users with better services. This ranges from the language you speak to complex matters such as advertising that you find particularly useful, or the persons who are most important to you online. You will find the comprehensive data protection declaration here: http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

However, should you not wish to have Google Translate, you can deactivate it by adjusting the setting under http://www.google.com/settings/ads.

7.8.        Social Media Plug-ins

On our website we offer you the use of so-called “social media buttons“. To protect your data, we use the “Shariff“ solution. Thereby, the buttons on the website are incorporated in graphics that contain a link to the appropriate website of the button provider. Thus, by clicking on the graphic, you are directed to the services of the relevant provider. Only then your data is conveyed to the provider. As long as you do not click on the graphic, there is no exchange between you and the social media button provider. You can find information on the collection and use of your data by the social media in the conditions of use of the relevant providers. More information about Shariff can be found here: http://www.heise.de/ct/artikel/Shariff-Social-Media-Buttons-mit-Datenschutz-2467514.html
