Privacy Notification

On our website Google Analytics is used for the ongoing optimization of our online offer.

Cookies

So-called cookies are used on this website. A cookie is a small file that can be stored on your computer when you visit a website. Basically, cookies are used to provide users with additional features on a website. For example, they may be used to help you navigate a website, to allow you to continue to use a website where you left off, and/or to remember your preferences and settings when you return to the website. Cookies cannot access, read or modify any other data on your computer. Most of the cookies on this website are so-called session cookies. They will be automatically deleted when you leave our website. Persistent cookies, however, remain on your computer until you manually delete them in your browser. We use such persistent cookies to recognise you when you next visit our website. If you want to monitor the cookies on your computer, in your browser settings you can choose to receive a notification when a website wants to set cookies. You can also block or delete cookies if they have already been saved on your computer. If you want to know more about how to take these steps, please use the “Help” feature in your browser. Please note that blocking or deleting cookies could affect your online experience and prevent you from using this website to the full extent.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, which are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google beforehand within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address provided by Google Analytics as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. You can prevent the storage of cookies by a corresponding setting of your browser software; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use all the features of this website to the fullest extent possible. In addition, you may prevent the collection by Google of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under this link.

Integration of services and contents of third parties

It may happen that content from third parties, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are included in this online offer. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third party provider”) perceive the IP address of the users. Because without the IP address, they could not send the content to the browser of each user. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content.

We endeavor to use only content whose respective providers use the IP address solely for the delivery of the content. However, we do not have any influence on this if the third parties provide the IP address e.g. save for statistical purposes. As far as we know, we will inform users about it.

SSL encryption

In order to best protect your transmitted data, we use SSL encryption (https protocol). You can recognize this by the prefix “https: //” in the page link in the address bar of your browser. Unencrypted pages are identified by “http: //”.

All data that you submit to our website – such as inquiries or applications – can not be read by third parties thanks to SSL encryption.

Server log files

The site provider collects data about accesses to the site and saves them as “server logfiles”. The following data is logged:

  •     Visited website
  •     Time at the time of access
  •     Amount of data sent in bytes
  •     Source / reference from which you came to the page
  •     Used browser
  •     Operating system used
  •     Used IP address

The data collected are for statistical purposes only and to improve the website.

Withdrawal

You have the option at any time to object to the collection, processing and use of your data and / or to revoke your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your personal data with regard to us with future effect. Data for billing and accounting purposes are not affected.
