Protection of your privacy and personal data is very important to us. Therefore, we naturally comply with the provisions of the federal data protection act (BDSG).
This law’s purpose is to protect the individual from violation of his personal rights through handling of his personal data. Below we inform you of how we handle such data.
Data collection, storage and use
Almost every browser sends information on browser type and version, on the operating system you are using, the date and time of the server query, from which website you have come (the “referrer”), your current IP address at the time, the names of the sub-sites, the access status and the amount of data transferred. Normally, these data cannot be assigned to a specific person. We use such information internally for statistical purposes only, so as to optimize our Internet offerings. They are therefore stored only temporarily and are deleted as soon as we no longer need them.
For especially user-friendly service, we offer your browser a recognition feature called a “cookie”. This is a small file that is stored in your computer so that the next time you visit our site, the site automatically recognizes you and can immediately offer you the service that sought out manually the last time. Your browser’s “Settings” feature allows you to choose whether you want to use such cookies only for the current session, for a specific time period, or without limitation — or whether you would like to do without this convenience completely. Naturally, you can also use our site’s content without cookies.
You can refuse the use of Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set on the computer, which prevents the future collection of your data when visiting this website: Disable Google Analytics
Further information concerning the terms and conditions of use and data privacy can be found at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/gb.html or https://www.google.de/intl/en_uk/policies/.
Please note that on this website, Google Analytics code is supplemented by “anonymizeIp” to ensure an anonymized collection of IP addresses (so called IP-masking).
