Data Privacy Statement:
Our website can generally be used without entering any personal data. Where personal data (for example, name, address or email address) is collected on our site, this is always done on a voluntary basis where possible. Such data will not be passed on to any third party without your express consent.
We would like to point out that when data is sent over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by email) security vulnerabilities may occur. It is impossible to provide complete protection against third party attacks.
We hereby explicitly prohibit the use of any contact details which have been published due to general information requirements by any third party to send advertising or information materials that have not been explicitly requested. The site's operators explicitly reserve the right to take legal steps should any unsolicited advertising information, for example in spam emails, etc., be sent.

Data privacy statement for the use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service belonging to Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, text files which are stored on your computer and enable your use of the website to be analysed. The data that the cookie generates about your use of the website is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is enabled on this website, Google abbreviates your IP address beforehand within European Union member states or in other Contracting States to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The full IP address will only be sent to a Google server in the USA, and abbreviated there, in exceptional cases. Google will use this data on behalf of this website's operator to analyse your use of the site in order to collate reports about website activities, and to provide the site operator with further services relating to website usage and Internet usage. The IP address sent from your browser by Google Analytics will not be combined with any other Google data.
You may prevent cookies being stored by making the relevant setting in your browser software; however, we wish to point out that in such cases you may not be able to make full use of this website's functions. You can, moreover, prevent the collection of the data (incl. your IP address) generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website by Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
Data privacy statement for the use of Google +1
Collecting and sharing of information:
You can use the Google +1 button to publish data worldwide. You and other users can get bespoke content from Google and our partners via the Google +1 button. Google stores both the data that you have provided for a piece of +1 content, and data about the site that you viewed when you clicked +1. Your +1s can be displayed as messages along with your profile name and your photo in Google services, for example in search results or in your Google profile, or in other places on websites and advertisements on the Internet.
Google records data about your +1 activities in order to improve the Google services for you and others. To be able to use the Google +1 button, you need a globally visible, public Google profile which needs to contain at least the name chosen for the profile. This name is used in every Google service. In certain cases this name may also replace a different name that you have used when sharing content via your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be displayed to users who know your email address or have other identifying information about you.
Use of the data collected:
The data you provide will be used for the purposes described above and in compliance with the applicable Google data privacy policies. Google may publish statistics they have collated about the +1 activities of users and pass them on to users and partners such as publishers, advertisers and associated websites.
Data privacy statement for the use of Twitter
Functions of the Twitter service are integrated into our website. These functions are provided by Twitter Inc., Twitter, Inc. 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. By using Twitter and the "re-tweet" function the websites you have visited with your Twitter account are linked to your Twitter account and made known to other users. In the process, data is also sent to Twitter.
You can change your data privacy settings on Twitter in the account settings at http://twitter.com/account/settings ändern.
