SSL encryption

We use the current technical standard of encryption methods (e.g. SSL) through HTTPS during transmission.

Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (following: Google). Google Analytics uses Cookies, text files which are stored on your computer by your web browser, to analyse the usage of our website. The information generated by the Cookie about your usage of the website is generally transferred to a server of Google in the USA and saved there. Within the Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, your IP address will be shortened by Google, based on the activation of the IP anonymisation on these websites. Only in exceptional cases the full IP address will be transferred to a server of Google in the USA and shortened there. Google will use the information on behalf of the operator of this website to analyse your usage of the website, to create reports about website activity, and to provide the website operator with further services related to website usage and internet usage. The IP address which is transferred from your browser through Google Analytics will not be joined with other data from Google.
The purposes for data processing are the analysis of website usage and creation of reports about website activity. Further related services shall be provided on basis of the website and internet usage. The data processing is based on the legitimate interest of the website operator.
You can prevent cookies to be stored by changing your browser settings; however, you might not be able to use all functions of this website properly then. You can avoid the collection of data related to your usage of the website (including IP address) which is created by the cookie for Google, as well as the processing of this data through Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin which is available under the following link:

The data collection for this website and for this browser by Google Analytics will be prevented in the future, as long as the Cookie remains installed in your browser.

Usage of script libraries (Google Webfonts)

In order to show our contents correctly and graphically appealing across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries on this website, like Google Webfonts. Google Webfonts are transferred into the cache of your browser to avoid multiple loading. In case the browser is not supporting Google Webfonts or prevents the access, the contents will be shown in a standard font.
The attempt to view script libraries or font libraries triggers a connection to the library operator automatically. Thereby, it is theoretically possible – but currently unclear if at all and for which reasons – that operators of respective libraries are collecting data.
You can find the privacy policy of the library operator Google here.

Embedded YouTube videos

Youtube videos are embedded on some of our websites. Operator of the respective plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. If you visit a page containing a YouTube plugin, a connection to the Youtube servers will be established. Thereby, Youtube will be informed which page you are visiting. Youtube can match your surfing behaviour to you personally, if you are logged into your Youtube account. You can avoid this by logging out of your Youtube account beforehand.
The operator uses Cookies which collect information about the user’s behaviour, if a Youtube video starts to play.
If the storage of Cookies is de-activated for the Google-Ad program, this type of cookies won’t be stored on your computer, even when viewing Youtube videos. However, Youtube is inserting non-personal user information in other Cookies as well. If you like to avoid this, you have to block the storage of Cookies in your browser.
Please find further information about the privacy of „Youtube“ in the policy of the provider:
