The responsible authority with respect to data protection legislation, particularly the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is:
We collaborate with our hosting providers to take measures to ensure the databases are afforded maximum protection from external access, losses, misuse or counterfeiting.
We would like to make you aware that there may be security vulnerabilities when transferring data over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by email). It is not possible to provide absolute data protection against access by third parties.
By using this website, you consent to the collection, processing and use of data in accordance with the following statements. This website can be visited at any time without having to register. This means that data such as accessed pages, names of retrieved files, dates and times, etc. are saved on the server for statistical purposes without being directly associated with you personally. Personal data, particularly names, addresses or email addresses, are always collected with consent, where possible. Your data will not be shared with third parties without your consent.
The provider of this website automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser sends to us automatically. This includes:
– browser type and version
– operating system being used
– referrer URL
– host name of the accessing computer
– time of server query
This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. This data will not be merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to check this data retroactively if there are specific indications that it is being used unlawfully.
Third party services

Google is committed to ensuring adequate data protection in accordance with the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield.

This website uses Google conversion tracking. If you have reached our website via an advertisement on Google, Google AdWords places a cookie on your computer. The conversion tracking cookie is placed when a user clicks on an advertisement linked to Google. These cookies become invalid after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits specific pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can identify that the user clicked on the advertisement and was forwarded to that page. Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The information captured using the conversion cookie can therefore be used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. The customers receive information on the total number of users who have clicked on their advertisement and who have been redirected to a specific page with a conversion tracking tag. They do not receive any information which can personally identify the users.
If you would prefer not to use tracking, you can switch off the cookie setting required for this – either in your browser settings by globally deactivating automatic cookie settings or by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain ‘googleleadservices.com’.
Please note that you should not delete the opt-out cookies if you do not wish measurement data to be recorded. If you have deleted all your cookies, you will have to reset the relevant opt-out cookie.
Use of Google remarketing
This website uses Google Inc.’s remarketing function. This function allows targeted advertisements to be shown to website visitors within the Google advertising network. A so-called cookie is stored in the website visitor’s browser, which allows the visitors to be identified if they visit websites that belong to the Google advertisement network. On these sites, visitors can be shown advertisements relating to content which the visitor has previously accessed on websites that use the Google remarketing function.
Use of Google reCAPTCHA
This website uses the reCAPTCHA service from Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; ‘Google’). The query allows us to distinguish between data entered by a person or by automated, mechanical processing. The query includes sending the IP address to Google together with any other data which may be required by the Google reCAPTCHA service. To this end, your data is sent to Google where it is processed further. However, within the member states of the European Union or other states contracted to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, your IP address is first truncated by Google. The full IP address is only sent to a Google server in the USA and truncated there under exceptional circumstances. Google uses this information to analyse your use of this service on behalf of the operators of this website. The IP address sent from your browser as part of the reCAPTCHA process is not merged with other Google data. Your data may also be transferred within the USA. The European Commission has issued an adequacy decision for the transfer of data to the USA (the ‘Privacy Shield’). Google is a Privacy Shield participant and has agreed to follow its guidelines. By completing the query, you consent to your data being processed. Processing takes place with your consent based on Art. 6(1) GDPR. You can withdraw your consent at any time without affecting the legality of the processing completed with your consent up to the time of the withdrawal.
This website uses Google AdSense, a service for integrating advertisements from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google AdSense uses so-called cookies, text files which are stored on your computer and which allow website use to be analysed. Google AdSense also uses so-called web beacons (invisible graphics). These web beacons allow information such as visitor traffic to be analysed. The information on the use of this site (including your IP address) and the delivery of advertising material produced by cookies and web beacons is sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there. This information can be forwarded by Google to Google’s contractual partners. However, Google will not merge your IP address with other data held about you. You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting your browser software settings; please be aware, however, that you may not be able to use all the functions of this website if you do so. By using this website, you agree to the data collected about you being processed by Google in the manner described above and for the purposes stated above.
