Pri­va­cy policy

Pri­va­cy

As far as per­son­al infor­ma­tion (such as name, address or e‑mail address­es) is col­lect­ed on our site, this is done on a vol­un­tary basis, except in the cas­es express­ly described below. This data will not be passed on to third par­ties with­out your express con­sent. We would like to point out that data trans­mis­sion over the Inter­net (e.g. com­mu­ni­ca­tion by e‑mail) can have secu­ri­ty risks. A com­plete pro­tec­tion of data against access by third par­ties is not possible.

The use of our web­site is gen­er­al­ly pos­si­ble with­out pro­vid­ing per­son­al data. You are nei­ther oblig­ed to vis­it this web­site nor to pro­vide any per­son­al data. If you do not pro­vide us with per­son­al infor­ma­tion, you may not be able to use cer­tain func­tion­al­i­ties of this web­site. Oth­er­wise, there will be no con­se­quences for you.

The use by third par­ties of con­tact data pub­lished with­in the frame­work of the imprint oblig­a­tion for the pur­pose of send­ing adver­tis­ing and infor­ma­tion mate­r­i­al not express­ly request­ed is here­by express­ly pro­hib­it­ed. The oper­a­tors of the pages express­ly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unso­licit­ed send­ing of adver­tis­ing infor­ma­tion, for exam­ple through spam mails.

Google Ana­lyt­ics

On the basis of our legit­i­mate inter­ests (i.e. inter­est in the analy­sis, opti­miza­tion and eco­nom­ic oper­a­tion of our online offer with­in the mean­ing of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR) we use Google Ana­lyt­ics, a web analy­sis ser­vice of Google LLC (“Google”). Google uses cook­ies. The infor­ma­tion gen­er­at­ed by the cook­ie about the use of the web­site by the user is usu­al­ly trans­ferred to a Google serv­er in the USA and stored there.

Google is cer­ti­fied under the Pri­va­cy Shield Agree­ment and thus offers a guar­an­tee to com­ply with Euro­pean data pro­tec­tion law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

Google will use this infor­ma­tion on our behalf to eval­u­ate the use of our web­site by users, to com­pile reports on the activ­i­ties with­in this web­site and to pro­vide us with fur­ther ser­vices asso­ci­at­ed with the use of this web­site and the Inter­net. In doing so, pseu­do­ny­mous user pro­files of the users can be cre­at­ed from the processed data. We only use Google Ana­lyt­ics with acti­vat­ed IP anonymiza­tion. This means that the IP address of the user is short­ened by Google with­in mem­ber states of the Euro­pean Union or in oth­er con­tract­ing states of 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. The IP address trans­mit­ted by the user’s brows­er is not com­bined with oth­er Google data. Users can pre­vent the stor­age of cook­ies by adjust­ing their brows­er soft­ware accord­ing­ly; users can also pre­vent the col­lec­tion of data gen­er­at­ed by the cook­ie and relat­ing to their use of the online offer to Google and the pro­cess­ing of this data by Google by down­load­ing and installing the brows­er plu­g­in avail­able under the fol­low­ing link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

Fur­ther infor­ma­tion on the use of data by Google, set­ting and objec­tion options, can be found in Google’s pri­va­cy pol­i­cy (https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads) and in the set­tings for the dis­play of adver­tis­ing by Google (https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated).

The per­son­al data of users will be delet­ed or made anony­mous after 14 months.

Yan­dex Metrica

This web­site uses Yan­dex Met­ri­ca, a web ana­lyt­ics ser­vice of Yan­dex OY, Moreenikatu 6, 04600 Mantsala, Fin­land. With the help of Yan­dex Met­ri­ca pseu­do­nymized vis­i­tor data is col­lect­ed, eval­u­at­ed and stored on the basis of our legit­i­mate inter­est in the sta­tis­ti­cal analy­sis of user behav­ior for opti­miza­tion and mar­ket­ing pur­pos­es in accor­dance with Art. 6 para­graph 1 let­ter f GDPR. Pseu­do­nymized user pro­files can be cre­at­ed and eval­u­at­ed from this data for the same pur­pose. Yan­dex Met­ri­ca uses so-called “cook­ies”, i.e. small text files that are stored local­ly in the cache of the Inter­net brows­er of the site vis­i­tor. These cook­ies serve, among oth­er things, to rec­og­nize the brows­er and thus enable a more pre­cise deter­mi­na­tion of sta­tis­ti­cal data. The user’s IP address is part of the infor­ma­tion col­lect­ed, but is pseu­do­nymized imme­di­ate­ly after the col­lec­tion and before it is stored by delet­ing the last octet in order to exclude any pos­si­bil­i­ty of per­son­al ref­er­ence. The infor­ma­tion gen­er­at­ed by the cook­ie (includ­ing the pseu­do­nymized IP address) is trans­ferred to a Yan­dex serv­er and stored there to pro­tect the above interests.

The data col­lect­ed with Yan­dex tech­nolo­gies will not be used at any time to per­son­al­ly iden­ti­fy the vis­i­tor of this web­site with­out the sep­a­rate­ly giv­en con­sent of the per­son con­cerned, and will not be merged with per­son­al data about the bear­er of the pseu­do­nym.

If you wish to deac­ti­vate the eval­u­a­tion of user behav­ior via cook­ies, you can set your brows­er so that you are informed about the set­ting of cook­ies and decide indi­vid­u­al­ly whether to accept them or to exclude the accep­tance of cook­ies for cer­tain cas­es or gen­er­al­ly.

Alter­na­tive­ly, you can object to the col­lec­tion of data by Yan­dex for the future by using an opt-out add-on, which you can obtain from the fol­low­ing web­site: https://yandex.com/support/metrica/general/opt-out.xml

The per­son­al data of users will be delet­ed or made anony­mous after 14 months.
