Privacy statement

Data privacy

As a rule the use of our website has been allowed without providing any personal data. Inasmuch as personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail addresses) will be requested from you on our website, this will always be done on a voluntary basis. There will be no passing on of such data to third parties, unless your expressive prior approval has been received.

Please be instructed that the transmission of data in the internet (e.g. through the communication by e-mail) may demonstrate security gaps. A protection of data privacy against third party access without gaps is practically impossible.

We herewith explicitly object to the use of contact data published within the frame of the obligation to provide a list of authors by third parties sending advertising or information materials, which have not been expressly requested. The operators of this website expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the case unsolicited advertising information such as spam e-mails have been sent.

Privacy statement for the use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web-based analytic service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files, which are stored on your computer enabling an analysis of your visit on this website. The information generated through this cookie is generally transferred to and stored on a Google server in the USA. In the case the IP-tool to render the data anonymous has been activated your IP-address, however, will be abbreviated within the member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the convention covering the European Economic Area.

In exceptional cases only the full IP-address will be transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. The operator of this website has ordered Google to use this information to analyse the visits to your website in order to compile reports about the activities on this website and/or provide further services for the website operator related to website visits or internet use. The IP-address transmitted by your browser within the frame of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data of Google.

You may block the storage of cookies by an appropriate setting of your browser software; however we inform you that in such a case possibly some functions of this website might not be able for use in their full extent. Over and above you may also prevent the recording of the data generated by the cookie and related to your visit of the website (including your IP-address) by Google as well as the processing by Google by loading down and installing the browser plug-in, which is available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

One option to contradict the web analysis by Google Analytics exists in the form of an opt-out-cookie instructing Google that there may be no recording or use of your data other than for purposes of the web analysis. Kindly remember that in the case of this solution there will be no web analysis for the time the opt-out-cookie will be stored by the browser.
