Normally, our web site can be used without providing personal data.
Disclosure of Personal Information to Third Parties
As a matter of principle we do not share any identifiable personal information with third parties without your explicit consent.
If you want to receive the newsletter eventually offered on this web site, you must register for it. We will use your e-mail address exclusively for the delivery of our newsletters until your deregistration. For receiving our newsletter we require your e-mail address, information that allow us to verify that you are the owner of the specified e-mail address and your consent to receive the newsletter. More data will not be collected. We will use these data exclusively for sending the requested information and will not disclose them to third parties.
Form Fields (such as in contact forms) and Making Contact by E-mail
As far as personal data (for example name, address or e-mail addresses) are requested on our site (for example in a contact form), this will be done, as far as possible, on a voluntary basis. Only such fields in forms are marked mandatory that are required for using our offer. Where possible, we waive denomination of a clear name.
If you contact us via contact form the form's mandatory information including your contact data will be stored by us for the purpose of processing your request and for possible follow-up questions. We will not disclose your data to third parties without your consent.
In this context we would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. during communication by e-mail) is subject to security gaps. Complete data protection from access by third parties is not possible.
You may withdraw your consent to store your data, your e-mail address, as well as your consent to use these data for the delivery of our newsletter at any time, p. ex. via the unsubscribe link in the newsletter.
Our web pages we use so called cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored by your browser on your computer. Cookies do no harm to your computer and contain no viruses. Cookies help to make pages user-friendly, effective and safe.

Server-Log-Files and Logging
The provider of these pages automatically collects and stores information sent by your browser in so-called server log files. This information includes e.g. browser type/browser version, operating system, referrer URL, host name of the accessing computer and/or time stamp of the server request.
These data cannot be associated with a specific person. There is no amalgamating of data with other data sources. However, we reserve the right to review these data in case of concrete evidence of illegal use.
To ensure the functioning of this tele media service (stability, reliability) the provider of these pages automatically collects and stores IP addresses that may allow identification. We do not exploit personal data out of this operation. The statistical evaluation of anonymized data records is reserved.
Information, Deletion, Blocking
At any time, you do have cost-free information rights regarding your personal data stored by us, their origin, recipient and purpose of data processing, and a right to correction, blocking or deletion of such data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint regarding further questions on the subject of personal data.
Objection against Unsolicited Advertising
We expressly prohibit third parties from using contact data published as part of our legally required website credits for the transmission of unsolicited advertising and information material. The operator of these pages expressly reserves the right to take legal steps in the event of any such unsolicited advertising, such as Spam e-mail.
Third Parties' Privacy Guidelines
Script Libraries, Google Web Fonts
To display our contents correctly in all browsers and make them graphically appealing, we use script and font libraries such as Google Web fonts (http://www.google.com/webfonts/) on this site. Google Web Fonts are transferred to your browser's cache to avoid multiple loading. If your browser does not support or prevents access, Google Web Fonts contents are displayed in a standard font.
The execution of script or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library's operator. Theoretically it is possible-but currently also unclear if so and to what ends–that the operators of the corresponding libraries collect data.
