I. General

Personal data will be generated when you visit our websites. These are data that are required in order to enable you to use our websites or to enable us to consider your settings. Apart from this, they are information that you provide to us via the contact options offered on these pages.
We use these data in order to ensure proper operation of our website and to answer your queries.

We will inform you about the use of “cookies” and the analysis tools used on our websites, and the option for approving or rejecting them. We will inform you concerning your rights at the end of the data protection statement.

We use cookies. Cookies are text files that are filed and stored on a computer system via a web browser.

Many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters through which websites and servers can be associated with the specific web browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited websites and servers to distinguish your individual browser from any other web browser that contains any other cookies. A specific web browser may be recognized and identified by a unique cookie ID.

By use of cookies, we may provide users of this website with user-friendly services that would be impossible without setting the cookie. A cookie may optimize the information and offers on our website within the meaning of the user. Cookies enable us, as mentioned before, to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is making it easier for users to use our website. For instance, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to enter his access data again every time when he visits the website because this is taken care of by the website and the cookie stored on the user’s computer system.

You may prevent setting of cookies by our website at any time by making the corresponding setting in the web browser used and thereby permanently object to setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies already set may be erased at any time via a web browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common web browser. If the data subject deactivates setting of cookies in the web browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.

3. the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (referrers),
4. sub-webpages that are controlled via an accessing system on our website,
5. the data and time of an access to the website,
6. an internet protocol address (IP address),
7. the internet service provider of the accessing system and
8. other similar data and information that serve to defend against attacks on our information-technical systems.

We do not draw any conclusions concerning you when using these general data and information. Instead, this information is needed to

1. properly deliver the contents of our website,

3. ensure permanent function of our information-technology systems and the technology of our website
4. provide the criminal prosecution authorities with the information required for criminal prosecution in case of a cyberattack.

These data and information are therefore evaluated by us statistically and with the target of increasing data protection and data security, in order to finally ensure an optimal protection level for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any other personal data you indicate. These data will not be combined with any other data sources. If there are any indications of illegal use of our website, however, we are able to subsequently inspect these data.

II. Social media

We have integrated components of the service YouTube on our website. YouTube is an internet video portal that enables video publishers to publish video clips free of charge and other users to view, evaluate and comment on them free of charge as well. YouTube permits publication of any kind of videos, so that complete film and TV programs, as well as music videos, trailers or videos produced by the users directly can be called up via the internet portal.
The operator company of YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

With every call of an individual page of our website on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) was integrated, the web browser on your system will automatically be caused by the respective YouTube to download a presentation of the corresponding components from YouTube. Within the context of this technical process, YouTube and Google will be informed of which specific sub-page of our website you visit.
If you are logged in with YouTube at the same time, YouTube will recognise the specific sub-page you visit during every call of the website by you and throughout the duration of your respective stay on our website. This information will be collected by the YouTube component and assigned to your YouTube account by YouTube. If you activate any YouTube component integrated on our website, the data and information transmitted by it will be assigned to your personal YouTube user account and stored and processed by YouTube and Google.

YouTube and Google will be informed via the YouTube component that you have visited our website if you are logged in with YouTube at the same time at which you call up our website; this is done independently of whether you click the YouTube component or not.

If this kind of transmission of such information to YouTube and Google is not desired by you, you may prevent transmission by logging out of your YouTube account before calling up our website.

III. Analysis tools

Google Analytics (with anonymisation function)
We have integrated the component Google Analytics (with anonymisation function) on our website.

Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis means the collection, aggregation and evaluation of data concerning the behaviour of visitors on websites. A web analysis service collects, among others, data regarding from which website a data subject came to a website (referrers), which sub-pages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed.

The operator company of the Google Analytics component is Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is analysis of the visitor flows on our website. Google uses the data and information gained among others to evaluate use of our website, in order to compile online reports for us that indicate the activities on our websites and in order to render further services connected to use of our website.

Google Analytics places a cookie in your system. Every call of a single page of this website on which a Google Analytics component was integrated, the Google Analytics component will automatically cause your web browser to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. Within the context of this technical procedure, Google will gain knowledge of personal data, such as your internet protocol address, in order to track the origin of the visitors and clicks. The cookie is used to store personal data, such as the access time, place from which an access took place and frequency of visits to our website by you. At every visit to our websites, these personal data, including the internet protocol address used by you, will be transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on such personal data collected with technical means to third parties.

You may prevent setting of cookies at any time by making the corresponding setting in the web browser used and thereby permanently object to setting of cookies.

You are also able to object to recording of the data generated by Google Analytics referring to use of this website and processing of such data by Google and prevent this. For this, you must download a browser add-on under the link and install it.
