This website uses functions of the web analytics service, Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc.; 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies” which are text files placed on your computer to help the website analyse how you use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website will normally be transmitted to and stored by Google on a server in the United States.
We have activated the function IP anonymization on this website. This means that Google will shorten your IP address within member states of the European Union and in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before transmission to the USA. The full IP address is only transmitted to a Google server in the USA in exceptional cases and shortened there. On behalf of this website provider, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider. Google will not associate the IP address transmitted in the context of Google Analytics with any other data held by Google.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use all the functions of this website. Furthermore, you can prevent the capture of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and sent to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

Demographics and Interests of Google Analytics
This website uses the function “Demographics and Interests” of Google Analytics. This enables the creation of reports containing statements on age, gender and interests of the website visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising of Google and from visitor data from third-party providers. This data cannot be assigned to any particular person. You can deactivate this function at any time via the display settings in your Google account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as illustrated in the section “Opposition to data collection”.
This website uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content such as requests that you send to us as a website operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address bar of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and there is a padlock icon in your browser bar. If the SSL encryption is activated, the data that you send to us cannot be read by any third parties.
Right to information, deletion, blocking
You have the right to free information about your personal data stored at any time, about its origin and its recipients and the purpose of data processing as well as a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data. You may contact us at any time about this or any other matters relating to personal data using the address given in the legal notice.

We hereby object to the use of the contact data published as part of our obligation to publish legal information on our website for the sending of unsolicited advertising and information material. The operators of the website expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the case of the unsolicited sending of advertising information by spam e-mails, for example.
