Data Protection Declaration:
Thank you for visiting our website. We treat the protection of your personal data very seriously and therefore not only endeavour to provide you with a comprehensive online offer, but also to protect your right to informational self-determination.
§2 Use of protocol data in order to protect our systems
In order to protect our systems and prevent improper or fraudulent conduct, access data in the form of protocol files are stored by us each time a user accesses this website and when a file is retrieved. Data records in these protocol files comprise the:
• IP address
• time of access
• Client response
• http response code
• transmitted data quantity
• information concerning your browser and the operating system you use.
This data is not assigned to a particular person and it is also not suitable for the creation of a personal profile.
§3 Data collection for page optimization (Google Analytics Cookies)
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "Cookies", text files that are stored on your computer, enabling an analysis of the use of the website by you to be carried out. The information that is generated by the cookie concerning the use of this website is normally transmitted to a Google server in the USA, where it is stored. The activated IP anonymization on this website ensures however that your IP address is abbreviated by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other states that have contracted to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. In exceptional cases, the full IP address is transmitted to a Google server in the USA, where it is abbreviated.
After being commissioned to do so by the owner of this website, Google shall use this information in order to analyse your use of the website, compile reports on the website activities and to provide other additional website and Internet usage-related services for the website owner. The abbreviated IP address that is transmitted to google Analytics by your browser (192.168.10.233 is abbreviated to 192.168.10.000) is not collated together with other Google data. You can prevent the storage of the cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; we wish to point out however, that this can result in you not being able to use all of the functions on this website. You can also prevent the recording of the data that is generated by the cookie to Google with regard to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) and its processing by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de) or by contradicting the tracking on our website.
§4 Handling of personal data
If the users of our website should make personal data available, we exclusively use this for the purpose stated when you entered the data. We store your data on especially protected servers that are located in Germany. Only a few especially authorised persons that are responsible for the technical, commercial or editorial support of the server have access to it.
We only forward personal data to third parties if the user has explicitly consented to it being forwarded or should this be necessary with regard to the client for the purpose of processing contracts or for billing purposes. The data is never used for advertising purposes, the exception being if you have explicitly agreed to this.
The stored personal data is deleted if the user of the website and/or the client should revoke the approval to the storage, the purpose of the storage has been met or no longer exists and should its storage be impermissible on other legal grounds. Data that is subject to a statutory storage duration are not affected by a deletion request made during this period.
§5 Social media buttons
We have social media buttons from the companies Facebook, YouTube and Twitter on our website. We hereby use the 2-click method from the Heise publishing house. With this form of installation, contrary to the conventional use of the buttons, no files are transferred whatsoever before you have actively used the button concerned.
Your data is processed in accordance with the provisions of the social media service concerned as soon as you activate one of the buttons.
§7 External links
In order to inform you optimally, you will find links on our website that link to third parties. We inform you that it is an external link should such this not be obviously discernible. We have no influence on the content and design of these websites from other providers. It is therefore obviously the case that the warranties provided in this data protection declaration do not have validity there.
