    3. Personal Data
      Personal data is any information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person; a natural person is regarded as identifiable if he/she can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or one or more particular characteristics that express the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of this natural person.

      Personal data will also include information about your use of our website. Normally, this is brought about by using log files or cookies. Further information on log files and cookies can be found further below.

    4. Purpose of use and personal data concerned
      The scope and nature of the collection, processing and use of your data will depend upon whether you visit our website merely for obtaining information generally available or make use of services beyond this.

      1. Use for information purposes
        In principle, you do not need to provide personal data in order to use our website for merely information purposes. In this case, when you access our websites, we shall, rather, only collect the data possibly automatically transferred to us by your Internet browser, such as for example:

        • the referrer (the website visited beforehand)
        • the website or file requested
        • the browser type and version
        • the operating system used
        • the type of device used
        • the time of access
        • the IP address in anonymised form (the IP address will be used only to determine the place of access)

        In this respect, the IP address of your computer will be stored in so-called log files only for the duration of your use of the website and will then be immediately erased or be anonymised by truncation. The remaining data will be stored for a limited period. We shall use this data for the operation of our website, in particular in order to find and eliminate faults in the website, determine the degree of utilisation of the website and carry out adaptations or improvements.

      2. Using our website for utilising further services
        If you utilise further services of our company via our website, you may possibly have to provide personal data for this. Your data will, in this respect, be processed exclusively for the purpose of rendering the service desired by you.

    5. Contact
      On our website, we offer you the option of contacting us using a contact form. The personal data that you provide in the course of a contact request will be used only for processing your request and will be erased by the webserver without delay. We point out that the messages will be retained to the extent necessary under existing statutory retention duties. Unless otherwise stated below, your data will not be passed on to third parties.

    6. Use of cookies
      We use cookies to track visitor preferences and to enable us to optimise the design of our websites. Cookies are small text files stored on your computer when you visit our website. You can erase these cookies at any time if you so wish. However, this may lead to individual features being no longer available to you.

    7. Google Analytics
      This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files that are stored on your computer and enable your use of the website to be analysed. Normally, the information generated by such cookie concerning your use of this website will be transferred to a Google server in the USA and be stored there. If IP anonymisation has been activated on this website, Google will however, within Member States of the European Union or the European Economic Area, truncate your IP address beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will your full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and be truncated there. Google will, on behalf of the operator of this website, use this information to evaluate your usage of the website, put together reports on website activities and provide the website operator with other services relating to website and Internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics will not be combined with other Google data. You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly. Please note, however, that you may then possibly be unable to fully use all features of this website. By downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the link, you can, furthermore, prevent data (including your IP address) generated by such cookie relating to your use of the website from being collected and transmitted to Google and being processed by Google.
      You can find further information on this at or at (general information on Google Analytics and data privacy). Please note that the code "gat._anonymizeIp();" has been added to Google Analytics on this website to ensure anonymised logging of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).
