We provide certain services with the cooperation of third parties. We have carefully selected these service providers and taken appropriate measures to protect your personal data.

1. Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies.

Through the use of cookies in the context of Google Analytics, your IP-address is recorded. The IP-addresses of visitors to this website will, however, be shortened as soon as technically possible before storage or analysis and thus made anonymous.

Anonymisation takes place within the European Union or within the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

We use the data collected by Google Analytics cookies to track the behavior of visitors to our website.

The IP-address transmitted by your browser in connection with Google Analytics is not merged with other data by Google.

You can prevent Google Analytics cookies from being stored by changing the settings in your browser software accordingly (for further information, please see our cookie explanation). Please note, that in this case you may not be able to use the full functionality of the website.

In addition, you can prevent your data from being processed by Google Analytics by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

2. Newsletter

The following information will inform you about the contents of our newsletter as well as the registration, dispatch and statistical evaluation procedures and your rights of objection. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to the receipt and procedures described.

Content of the newsletter: We send newsletters, emails and other electronic notifications with advertising information (hereinafter “newsletter”) only with the consent of the recipient or a legal permission. Insofar as the contents of the newsletter are specifically described within the framework of registration, they are decisive for the consent of the user. In addition, our newsletters contain the following information: our products, services, offers, promotions and our company.

Double-Opt-In and logging: The registration to our newsletter takes place in a so-called Double-Opt-In procedure. I.e. after registration, you will receive an email asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary, so that nobody can register with foreign email addresses. The registrations for the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes storing the login and confirmation times as well as the IP address. Likewise the changes of your data stored with the dispatch service provider are logged.

Registration data: To subscribe to the newsletter, it is sufficient to enter your email address.

Cancellation/revocation: You can cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consent. At the same time, your consents to its shipment by the shipping service provider and the statistical analyses expire. A separate revocation of the dispatch by the dispatch service provider or the statistical evaluation is unfortunately not possible. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter.

3. Integrated YouTube videos

We embed YouTube videos on our website. The integrated videos place cookies on the user’s computer when the website is called up. If you have deactivated the setting of cookies for the Google advertising program, you will not have to reckon with any such cookies when you call up YouTube clips. However, YouTube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you have to block it in your browser.

We use the YouTube button plugin of the audio/video platform youtube.com, which is operated by YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, a subsidiary of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The plugin is recognizable by the YouTube logo. As soon as you visit pages on our website equipped with a YouTube plug-in, a connection is established to YouTube’s servers. The YouTube server is informed which website was visited. If you have a YouTube account and are logged in, YouTube allows you to assign the surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand. For more information about YouTube’s collection and use of data, please visit: https://www.youtube.com/static?template=privacy_guidelines.

4. Transfer of data to service providers
