Collection, processing and use of personal data

You can visit our website without providing any personal data. In that case, we store only anonymous access data, such as the name of your internet provider, the browser version you use or the names of the files you have retrieved. This data is evaluated for the sole purpose of improving our products and services and does not permit any identification of the user.
We collect personal data directly on our website only if you disclose such data voluntarily by using our contact form. Unless you have given your specific consent, we use the data you have provided only for processing your inquiry. If this does not lead to any further business contact or further communication, we delete your contact data again.

Use of cookies

We use cookies on various pages of our website to make the use of the contents provided as attractive as possible for you. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your computer. Most of the cookies we use are deleted from your hard drive on completion of the browser session (session cookies). Other cookies remain on your computer and enable us to recognise your computer again the next time you visit our website (permanent cookies). You can adjust your browser setting to prevent the storage of cookies on your computer. For further information please refer to the help files of your browser.

Google Analytics

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies, i.e. small text files which are stored on your computer and enable us to analyse your use of the website. As a general rule, the information about your use of our website generated by these cookies (including your IP address) is transmitted to a Google server in the USA where it is stored. However, if you have activated the IP anonymizer on this website, inside member states of the European Union or in other states which have signed the Agreement on the European Economic Area Google will abbreviate your IP address before transmission. Only in exceptional cases will your full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. Google uses the collected information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports of your activities on the website for us and to provide further services relating to the use of the website and of the internet. Google may also forward this information to third parties if obliged to do so by law or if the third party concerned processes the data on behalf of Google. In no case will Google link your IP address to other Google data. You can prevent installation of the cookies by adjusting the setting of your browser; however, please note that in that case you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of our website. By using the website, you agree to the processing of your data by Google as described above and for the purpose specified above. You can also prevent transmission of the data generated by the cookie and the data relating to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) to Google, and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin provided under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. In view of the debate on the use of analytic tools which use full IP addresses, we would point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the “anonymizeIp()” extension so that only abbreviated IP addresses are processed in order to rule out any possibility of creating a direct link to a specific person.
