Data Protection Statement

Scope

In accordance with the Federal Data Protection Act and the Telemedia Act, this data protection statement is intended to inform the users of this website about the nature and scope of the personal data as well as information concerning the purpose, collection and use of personal data by the website operator [insert your contact data].

The website operator takes your privacy very seriously and will treat your personal information confidentially and in accordance with the law.

Please bear in mind that in general, data transmission can be subject to security vulnerabilities. Full protection against access by unauthorised parties is not possible.

Access data

The website operator and/or page provider collects data concerning access to the site and saves them as “server log files”. The following data is logged:

Website that is visited

Time of access

Amount of data sent in bytes

Source from which you came to the page

Browser that is used

Operating system that is used

IP address that is used

The data that is collected is only for statistical purposes and is used to improve the website. However, the website operator reserves the right to retrospectively check the server log files if specific indications point to illegal use.

Cookies

This site uses cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your device. Your browser accesses these files. The use of cookies increases the user-friendliness and security of this website.

Commonly used browsers offer the option of not allowing cookies.

Note: If you make the appropriate settings, there is no guarantee that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions.

Handling of personal data

The website operator only collects, uses and transfers your personal data if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of data.

Personal information is all the information that is used to identify your person and that can be traced back to you – e.g. your name, e-mail address and telephone number.

Handling contact information

If you contact the website operator through the contact options that are offered, your details will be stored so that they can be used to process and answer your request. This data will not be disclosed to third parties without your consent.

Google Analytics

This website uses the “Google Analytics” service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatere Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) in order to analyse the website usage of users. The service uses “cookies” which are text files stored on your device. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

IP anonymisation takes place on this website. The IP address of the users is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area. This reduction ensures that the personal reference of your IP address is eliminated. Under the terms of the agreement, which the website operators have entered into with Google Inc., they use the collected information in order to compile an evaluation of website usage & activity and provide Internet-related services.

You have the option of preventing cookies from being stored on your device by making the appropriate settings in your browser. If your browser does not allow cookies, there is no guarantee that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions.

Furthermore, you can use a browser plug-in to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being sent to Google Inc. and used by Google Inc. The following link leads you to the corresponding plugin: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

Alternatively, you can prevent this from happening by clicking on this link:

Google Analytics Optout Browser Plugin

Google Analytics collects information about you within this website. You download an “opt-out cookie” by clicking on the link above. As a general rule, your browser must therefore allow the storage of cookies. If you delete your cookies regularly, you will need to click on the link each time you visit this website.

This is where you will find further information concerning data usage by Google Inc.: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de

Use of social media plugins

This website uses Facebook Social Plugins, which is operated by Facebook Inc. (1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA). The incorporation of the Facebook logo and/or the terms “Like” and “Share” in the Facebook colours (blue and white) can be recognised. Information relating to all of the Facebook plugins can be found in the following link: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/

The plugin creates a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook servers. The website operator has no influence whatsoever concerning the nature and extent of the data transmitted by the plugin to the servers of Facebook Inc. Information can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/help/186325668085084

The plugin informs Facebook Inc. that you have visited this website as a user. There is the possibility that your IP address will be saved. If you are logged into your Facebook account while visiting this website, the information will be linked to it.

If you use the functions of the plugin – e.g. by sharing or liking a post – the corresponding information will also be transmitted to Facebook Inc.

If you want to prevent Facebook Inc. associating this information with your Facebook account, please log out of Facebook before visiting this website.

Furthermore, this website uses the “+1” button of Google Plus. It is operated by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatere Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). If you visit a page that contains the “+1” button, a direct connection is made between your browser and the Google servers. The website operator therefore has no influence whatsoever concerning the nature and extent of the data transmitted by the plugin to the servers of Google Inc. If you click on the “+1” button whilst you are logged on to Google+, you share the contents of the page on your public profile.

According to Google Inc., personal data will not be collected until you click the button. Among other things, the IP address is stored, even in the case of logged in Google users. If you want to prevent Google Inc. from storing this data and linking it to your account, please log out before visiting this website.

For information about the “+1” button, please see https://developers.google.com/+/web/buttons-policy.

Furthermore, this website uses Twitter buttons. These are operated by Twitter Inc. (795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA). If you visit a page that contains such a button, a direct connection is created between your browser and Twitter’s servers. The website operator therefore has no influence whatsoever concerning the nature and extent of the data transmitted by the plugin to the servers of Twitter Inc.

According to Twitter Inc., only your IP address will be collected and stored.
