Privacy Policy

We take the protection of personal data very seriously, which is why we adhere strictly to the provisions of the data-protection laws. Personal data is only collected on this website to the extent that this is technically required, and is only used here as necessary. Under no circumstances is the collected data sold or otherwise shared with third parties. Once the website visit ends, the entered data is erased.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web-analysis service run by Google Inc. (‘Google’). Google Analytics uses cookies. These are small text files that your internet browser places and stores on your computer. These ‘conversion cookies’ become invalid after 30 days and are not used to personally identify you, but rather to analyse website usage. The information generated by the cookie in relation to your use of this website (including your IP address) is sent to a Google server in the USA, where it is saved. Google will use this information to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities for the website operators, and to render additional services associated with website usage and internet usage. Google may also send this information to third parties, insofar as this is stipulated by law or third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Under no circumstances will Google link your IP address with other data it stores. You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting your browser software settings accordingly; please note, however, that this may mean you are unable to use all functions of this website to their full extent. By using this website, you declare you agree for Google to process the data collected about you in the aforementioned manner and for the aforementioned purpose.

Google reCAPTCHA

This website uses Google reCAPTCHA” (hereinafter ‘reCAPTCHA’), run by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (hereinafter ‘Google’). The aim of reCAPTCHA is to check whether data input on our website (e.g. in order forms) has been entered by a human or an automated program. To do this, reCAPTCHA analyses the website visitor’s behaviour using various criteria. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the visitor enters the website. reCAPTCHA then analyses various pieces of information (e.g. IP address, duration of website visit, or mouse movements performed by the user). The data recorded during the analysis is forwarded to Google. The reCAPTCHA analyses constantly run in the background. Website users are not advised that an analysis is taking place. Data is processed based on Art. 6 Para. 1 f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting its website from illegal automated data leakage and spam. For further information on Google reCAPTCHA and the Google privacy statement, visit the following links to Google Privacy Policy und Google reCaptcha.

Google Adwords

We use the ‘Google Adwords’ advertising tool to promote our website. As part of this, we use the ‘Conversion Tracking’ analysis service run by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter ‘Google’ on our website. If you access our website from a Google ad, a cookie will be stored on your computer. If you visit certain pages of our website before the cookie expires, we and Google can see that you, as the user, have clicked on an ad we have placed on Google, and have been redirected to our site. The information obtained using the ‘conversion cookies’ help Google compile statistics on the visits to our site. These statistics show us the total number of users who have clicked on our ad, and which pages of our site each user ultimately visited. We and other sites using Google Adwords do not, however, obtain any information enabling us to personally identify users. You can prevent ‘conversion cookies’ from being installed by adjusting your relevant browser settings, e.g. the setting that generally disables automatic cookies or which specifically only blocks cookies from the ‘googleadservices.com’ domain. The Google privacy statement relating to this is available at: https://services.google.com/sitestats/en.html.
