Most of the cookies we use are automatically deleted from your hard disk at the end of the browser session (session cookies). Other cookies remain on your computer and enable us to recognize your computer on your next visit (persistent cookies). These cookies make the renewed filling out of forms with your data partly unnecessary.

However, the functionality may be limited if cookies are not accepted.

7. Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (hereinafter “Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies” – text files that are stored on your computer and enable the analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If you activate IP anonymity on this website, Google will, however, truncate your IP address prior to this within European union member states or in other states that are party to the Agreement in the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and truncated 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 activities and to provide the website operator with further services associated with website use and Internet use. The IP address that your browser transmits within the scope of Google Analytics will not be associated with any other data held by Google.

8. Embedded YouTube-Videos

We embed YouTube videos on some of our web pages. YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA is the operator of the corresponding plug-ins. When you visit a page with the YouTube plug-in, it will connect to YouTube’s servers. YouTube will be informed which pages you visit. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can assign your surfing behaviour to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.
If a YouTube video is started, the provider uses cookies that collect information about user behaviour.

If you have deactivated the storage of cookies for the Google Ad program, you will not have to reckon with such cookies when viewing YouTube videos. YouTube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you must block the saving of cookies in your browser.

9. Social plugins

On our website we offer you the possibility of using so-called “Social-Media-Buttons”. To protect your data, we rely on the “Shariff” solution for implementation. As a result, these buttons are integrated on the website only as a graphic that contains a link to the corresponding website of the button provider. By clicking on the graphic you will be forwarded to the services of the respective provider. Only then will your data be sent to the respective providers. If you do not click on the graphic, there is no exchange between you and the providers of the social media buttons. Information about the collection and use of your data in the social networks can be found in the respective terms of use of the respective providers.
We have integrated the social media buttons of the following companies on our website:

Facebook Inc. (1601 S. California Ave – Palo Alto – CA 94304 – USA)

No liability is therefore assumed for third parties.

You have the right to obtain information at any time about your personal data stored by us in accordance with the statutory provisions. In accordance with the statutory provisions, you also have the right to have your personal data corrected, restricted, blocked or, apart from the prescribed data storage for business purposes, deleted.

12. Amendments to our data protection regulations

We reserve the right to occasionally adapt this data protection declaration so that it always complies with current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services.
