Data Protection

 

Thank you for your visit to our website and your interest in our company. Protecting your personal data is a
responsibility we take very seriously. We want you to know when we collect data, what type of information we
compile and how we use it. Under no circumstances is the data we collect ever sold or
otherwise shared with third parties.

Cookies

We use cookies on a number of pages to make visiting our website more attractive and enable the use of certain functions. Cookies are small text files that your browser may place on your computer in a process known as
“setting a cookie.” You can configure your browser to suit your preferences and have it alert you before
a cookie is set, allowing you to decide whether you would like a cookie to be set on a case-by-case basis.
Alternatively, you can tell your browser to indiscriminately accept or reject all cookies. Cookies may be used
for different purposes. For instance, they may be designed to recognize that your computer was exposed to
a web offer before (persistent cookies) or to store previously viewed offers (session cookies).
Most of the cookies we use are deleted from your hard drive when the browser session ends (session cookie),
whereas others remain on your computer to enable us to recognize it upon your next visit (persistent cookies).
The manner in which we use cookies puts you at no disadvantage or risk whatsoever, which is why we recommend
that you allow the setting of cookies for our web offers in order to gain access to our convenient functions.

Inquiries

If you send us an email or a message using our feedback form, we will collect, store and process your data only
to the extent needed for the processing of inquiries in particular and our correspondence in general.
If your email is confidential in nature, we strongly urge you to encrypt it in order to protect it against unauthorized
access or changes during transmission. If you wish to receive the newsletter offered on our website, please be advised
that any data entered into the newsletter registration screen will be used exclusively for the purpose of directing our newsletter, which contains information on all of our services. Once your registration is complete,
we will send you a confirmation email containing a link on which you must click in order to finalize the order
(“double opt-in”). By clicking on the “Unsubscribe” link, the registration may be undone at any time.

Facebook

This website uses plug-ins produced by the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc.,
1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). When you visit a page on our website that contains
this plug-in, a connection is made to Facebook's web servers which then instructs your browser to display
the plug-in on such page. In this way information about which of our pages you have visited is passed on to Facebook.
If you are a Facebook member and are also logged in, Facebook will associate this information with your personal Facebook account. Using the plug-in directly (for example by clicking the “Like” button or adding a comment)
will also associate this information with your Facebook account. This can only be avoided by logging out of Facebook before using the plug-in's features. Additional information about how Facebook gathers and uses data,
as well as your on pertinent rights and how you can protect your privacy, can be found in Facebook's privacy section.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”).
Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer to help the website analyze
how users make use of the site. The information generated by cookies about your use of the website
(including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
However, if what is known as “IP anonymization” is activated on the website, Google will first truncate
the IP address within the member states of the European Union or in other states that are party to the
Treaty of the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a
Google server in the USA before being truncated. Acting on behalf of the owner of this website,
Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of this website to generate reports on
the activities on this website and to provide other services relating to Internet activity and usage to the website owner. Google will not associate the IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics with any other
data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser.
However, please note that if you do so, you may not have the benefit of this website’s full functionality.
In addition, you can block the transmission to Google of data captured by cookies with regard to your use of this
website (including the IP address) and may further prevent Google from processing this data by downloading and installing this browser plug-in: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. For more information, please visit: http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html (general information on Google Analytics and data protection)>. Please be advised that, on this website, Google Analytics was expanded by the code gat._anonymizeIp();
in order to ensure the anonymized capture of IP addresses (so-called “IP masking”).
