Data protection policy regarding the use of Google Analytics
This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. This is a service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses what are known as “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and allow your use of the website to be analysed. 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.
In the event that IP anonymisation is activated on this website, however, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of analysing your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and Internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser in connection with Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
You may prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser software. However, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser add-on available at the following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact details you have provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up enquiries. We do not pass on such data without your consent.
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we will require an e-mail address from you and information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address you provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter.

Use of Facebook plug-ins
Plug-ins of the social network Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA, are integrated in our pages. You can recognise the Facebook plug-ins by the Facebook logo or the “Like” button on our site. You can find an overview of the Facebook plug-ins here: developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins. When you visit our pages, the plug-in establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. As a result, Facebook receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click the Facebook “Like” button while you are logged into your Facebook account, you can link the content of our pages to your Facebook profile. This enables Facebook to associate your visit to our pages with your user account. We would like to point out that we, as the provider of the pages, have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Facebook.
