1. Data protection
You can usually use our website without supplying any personal information. If we collect personal data (such as name, address, or e-mail address) this is – if possible – kept voluntary. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express permission.
We would like to point out that data transmission via the Internet (e.g., communication via e-mail) may have gaps in security. Complete protection of data against attack by third parties is not possible.
Use of contact data published within the scope of the obligation to provide publication details by third parties for sending of advertising and informational materials not expressly requested is herewith expressly excluded. The operators of the site expressly reserve the right to take legal steps in the case of receiving unrequested advertising information such as spam.
3. Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics relies on cookies, which are text files saved on the user’s computer that enable analysis of website usage. The information about the users’ usage of this website generated by the cookie is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and saved there.
If IP anonymization is activated on this website, however, Google previously shortens the IP address of users within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states of the Agreement of the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. IP anonymization is active on this website. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate usage of the website by users, to compile reports on website activities, and to render additional services associated with the website and Internet usage for the website operator.
The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be pooled with other data from Google. Users can prevent cookies from being saved on their device by activating the appropriate settings in their browser software; users are herewith notified, however, that it will not be possible to make full use of all functions of this website in this case. In addition, users can prevent recording of the data generated by the cookie and related to their usage of the website (including their IP address) by Google and processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in from the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

4. Usage of Google Maps
This website uses Google Maps for map depiction. Google Maps is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

5. Liability for links
Our website contains links to external websites of third parties over whose contents we have no influence. We therefore cannot assume any responsibility for these foreign contents. The respective provider or operator of the sites is responsible for the contents of the linked sites. Linked sites were examined for possible legal violations at the time the links were set. No illegal contents were found at that time. Permanent monitoring of the contents of linked pages is not feasible, however, without concrete evidence of a breach of law. If violations of law become known to us, we will immediately remove any such links.
