As a user of our website, this data protection declaration provides you with all the necessary information about how, to what extent and for what purpose we or third parties collect and use data from you. Your data is collected and used strictly in accordance with the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG). We feel particularly committed to the confidentiality of your personal data and therefore work strictly within the limits that the legal requirements set for us. This personal data is collected on a voluntary basis if this is possible for us. We also only pass this data on to third parties with your express consent. We ensure a high level of security for particularly confidential data such as payment transactions or with regard to your inquiries to us by using SSL encryption. At this point, however, we would like to point out the general dangers of Internet use, over which we have no influence. Especially in e-mail traffic, your data is not secure without further precautions and may be recorded by third parties.
Information, deletion and blocking
You will receive information free of charge at any time about the personal data we have stored about you as well as the origin, the recipient and the purpose of data collection and data processing. You also have the right to request the correction, blocking or deletion of your data. Excluded from this are data that are kept due to legal regulations or are required for proper business transactions. So that a data lock can be implemented at any time, data is kept in a lock file for control purposes. If data is not covered by a statutory archiving obligation, we will delete your data at your request. If the archiving obligation applies, we will block your data. For all questions and concerns regarding the correction, blocking or deletion of personal data, please contact our data protection officer using the contact details in this data protection declaration or to the address given in the imprint.
Cookies collect information about your IP address, browser, operating system and internet connection. We do not link this information to personal data and do not pass it on to third parties. Under no circumstances are cookies used by us to bring malware or spy programs onto your computer.
You can also use our website without using cookies, which means that some of the displays and functions of our offer may only work to a limited extent. If you want to disable cookies, you can do this using special settings in your browser. Please use its help function to be able to make the appropriate changes.

Third Party Content and Services
The offer on our website may also include content, services and performance from other providers who supplement our offer. Examples of such offers are maps from Google Maps, YouTube videos or graphics from third parties. Calling up these services from third parties regularly requires the transmission of your IP address. This makes it possible for these providers to perceive your user IP address and to save it.
We try very hard to include only those third-party providers who use IP addresses solely to deliver the content. However, we have no influence on which third party stores the IP address. This storage can be used for statistical purposes, for example. Should we become aware of storage processes by third parties, we will inform our users of this fact immediately.
In this context, please also note the special data protection declarations for individual third-party providers and service providers whose services we use on our website. You can also find them in this data protection declaration.
You can register on our website to receive our newsletter. We need your e-mail address for this. In addition, we must check, in compliance with the relevant legal regulations, whether you are actually the owner of the e-mail address provided and would like to receive the newsletter. We therefore collect information that makes such a check possible. The data collected in this context is used to send and receive the newsletter. They have no other purpose and are not passed on to third parties. Apart from the information required for sending the newsletter, no further data is collected from our side.
Since sending and receiving the newsletter depends on your consent, you can revoke this consent to the collection and storage of your data at any time without giving reasons. To do this, use the “unsubscribe link” provided in the newsletter.
We collect personal data within the framework of data avoidance and data economy only to the extent and for as long as it is necessary for the use of our website or as required by law. We take the protection of your personal data seriously and strictly adhere to the relevant legal regulations and this data protection declaration when collecting and processing personal data. If the purpose of the data collection no longer applies or if the end of the statutory storage period has been reached, the data collected will be blocked or deleted.
Our website can be used regularly without disclosing personal data. If we collect personal data - such as your name, your address or your e-mail address - this data collection is voluntary. This data will not be disclosed to third parties without your express consent.
Please note that data is generally not always transmitted securely over the Internet. Especially in e-mail traffic, protection during data exchange cannot be guaranteed.
Server log files
The server log files are anonymous data that are recorded when you access our website. This information does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about you personally, but is essential for the delivery and presentation of our content for technical reasons. They also serve our statistics and the constant optimization of our content. Typical log files are the date and time of access, the amount of data, the browser used for access and its version, the operating system used, the domain name of the provider you commissioned, the page from which you came to our offer (referrer URL) and your IP address. Log files also enable a precise check to be carried out if there is any suspicion of illegal use of our website.
Our website uses SSL encryption when it comes to the transmission of confidential or personal content from our users. This encryption is activated, for example, when processing payment transactions and for inquiries that you send to us via our website. Please make sure that SSL encryption is activated on your side for the relevant activities. The use of encryption is easy to recognize: the display in your browser line changes from "http://" to "https://". Data encrypted via SSL cannot be read by third parties. Only transmit your confidential information with activated SSL encryption and contact us if in doubt.
Objection to promotional emails
As part of the statutory imprint obligation, we must publish our contact details. These are sometimes used by third parties to send unwanted advertising and information. We hereby object to any sending of advertising material of any kind that we have not expressly authorized. We also expressly reserve the right to take legal action against the unwanted and unsolicited sending of advertising material. This applies in particular to so-called spam e-mails, spam letters and spam faxes. We would like to point out that the unauthorized transmission of advertising material can affect competition law, civil law and criminal law. Spam e-mails and spam faxes in particular can lead to high claims for damages if they disrupt business operations by overflowing mailboxes or fax machines.
You may find plugins from the social network Facebook on our website. Its provider is Facebook Inc. It is based in the USA, California 94025, 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park. The Facebook logo or the "Like button" ("Like" button) on our site identify the Facebook plugins for you to recognize. Also note the overview of Facebook plugins at http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
When you visit our website, we connect directly to the Facebook server via the plugin. You are then switched there via your browser.

Use of Google AdSense
We include advertisements from Google AdSense on our website. Google AdSense is a remarketing function from Google Inc. It enables visitors to our site to be offered tailored, interest-based advertisements. Cookies are used for this. These text files stored on your computer generate information that makes you recognizable as a visitor, for example by identifying your IP address. Web beacons are also used. These are invisible graphics that are used to analyze the flow of visitors to a website. Google transmits all of the above information to its servers in the USA. In this context, Google denies the storage of personal data and the merging of IP addresses with other Google services. However, Google Inc. is not prevented from passing on the information to third parties.

By using our website, you regularly agree that Google collects and processes the designated data in remarketing in the manner described in more detail above.
On our website, we use Google AdWords, an online advertising program from Google Inc. Conversion tracking is also used. With this tool, Google AdWords places a cookie on your PC if you access our website via a Google advertisement. The cookie is no longer valid after 30 days. It is not used for personal traceability. If you visit our website as a user and the cookie is still working, we and Google will recognize that you have clicked on the relevant ad and have been forwarded to our site. Each Google AdWords customer is assigned a different cookie. In this way, cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers.
Conversion statistics for AdWords customers are created with the data collected by conversion cookies. As a customer, we learn the total number of users who responded to our ad and were then directed to a website that was tagged with a conversion tracking tag. During this process we do not receive any information with which we could personally identify you as a user.
If you reject the tracking process, the Google conversion tracking cookie can be deactivated via your Internet browser. If necessary, use the browser's help function for further information. You can find out more about Google's data protection regulations at http://www.google.de/policies/privacy/.
