The collection and use of your data is carried out strictly in accordance with the requirements of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG) as well as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
We feel particularly committed to the confidentiality of your personal data and therefore work strictly within the limits that the legal requirements set for us. This personal data is collected on a voluntary basis if this is possible for us. We also only pass this data on to third parties with your express consent. We ensure a high level of security for particularly confidential data, such as your inquiries to us, by using SSL encryption. However, we would like to take this opportunity to point out the general dangers of using the Internet, over which we have no influence. Especially in e-mail traffic, your data is not secure without further precautions and may be recorded by third parties.

Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are: browser type and browser version, operating system used, referrer URL, host name of the accessing computer, time of the server request. These files cannot be assigned to specific persons. This data will not be merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to subsequently check this data if we become aware of specific indications of illegal use.

On our website, we use Google AdWords, an online advertising program from Google Inc. Conversion tracking is also used. With this tool, Google AdWords places a cookie on your PC if you access our website via a Google advertisement. The cookie is no longer valid after 30 days. It is not used for personal traceability. If you as a user visit our website and the cookie is still working, we will be able to see, together with Google, that you have clicked on the relevant ad and have been redirected to our site. Each Google AdWords customer is assigned a different cookie. In this way, cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. Conversion statistics for AdWords customers are created with the data collected by conversion cookies. As customers, we find out the total number of users who responded to our ad and were then directed to a website that was provided with a conversion tracking tag. During this process we do not receive any information with which we could personally identify you as a user. If you reject the tracking process, the Google conversion tracking cookie can be deactivated via your Internet browser. If necessary, use the browser's help function for further information.

Objection to advertising emails
As part of the statutory imprint obligation, we must publish our contact details. These are sometimes used by third parties to send unwanted advertising and information.

This applies in particular to so-called spam e-mails, spam letters and spam faxes.

Spam e-mails and spam faxes in particular can lead to high claims for damages if they disrupt business operations by overflowing mailboxes or fax machines.
Information on data processing in connection with Google Analytics

If the person responsible for data processing on this website is located outside the European Economic Area or Switzerland, then Google Analytics data processing is carried out by Google LLC. Google LLC and Google Ireland Limited are hereinafter referred to as “Google”.
Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files which are stored on the computer of the site visitor and which enable an analysis of the use of the website by the site visitor. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website by the site visitor (including the shortened IP address) is usually transmitted to a Google server and stored there.
Google Analytics is used exclusively with the “_anonymizeIp()” extension on this website. This extension ensures that the IP address is anonymized by shortening it and excludes any direct personal reference. As a result of the extension, Google's IP address will be shortened beforehand within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by the relevant browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
On behalf of the site operator, Google will use the information collected to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the site operator (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR). The legitimate interest in data processing lies in optimizing this website, analyzing how the website is used and adapting the content. The interests of the users are sufficiently protected by pseudonymization.

The data sent and linked to cookies, user identifiers (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 50 months. The deletion of data whose retention period has been reached occurs automatically once a month.
The collection by Google Analytics can be prevented by the site visitor adjusting the cookie settings for this website. The collection and storage of the IP address and the data generated by cookies can also be objected to at any time with effect for the future. The corresponding browser plugin can be downloaded and installed from the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout .
The site visitor can prevent Google Analytics from recording data on this website by clicking on the following link . An opt-out cookie is set to prevent future collection of data when you visit this website.
Further information on the use of data by Google, setting and objection options can be found in Google's data protection declaration ( https://policies.google.com/privacy ) and in the settings for the display of advertising by Google ( https://adssettings. google.com/authenticated ).
To protect your requests via internet forms, we use the reCAPTCHA service from Google LLC (Google). The query serves to distinguish whether the input is made by a human or abusively by automated, machine processing. The query includes sending the IP address and any other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google. For this purpose, your input will be transmitted to Google and used there. However, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of this service. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of reCaptcha will not be merged with other Google data. The deviating data protection regulations of the company Google apply to this data.
