The information entered when signing up for our newsletter is used solely for this purpose. Subscribers may also be informed by email about any circumstances relevant to this service or the registration process, such as changes to the newsletter service or technical issues.
We require a valid email address for effective registration.

Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (hereinafter: Google). Google Analytics uses cookies. These are text files stored on your computer to facilitate analysis of how you use this website. Information created by these cookies about your use of this website is generally sent to and stored on Google servers located in the USA. If you are located in the European Union or in a signatory country of the Agreement on the European Economic Area, IP anonymization is used on these web pages to shorten your IP address before transmission. Only in exceptional cases will the complete IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google uses this information on behalf of the operator of this website to analyze your usage of this website for the purpose of compiling website activity reports. It is also used for additional services associated with website and internet usage provided by the website operator. Google does not associate the IP address transmitted by your browser with other data within the scope of Google Analytics.

You can change your browser setting to prevent the storage of cookies. However, doing so may also prevent you from using some or all features provided by this website. You can prevent Google from collecting and processing data generated by cookies and data related to your use of this website (incl. your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plugin available from the following link: add-on for deactivating Google Analytics.

Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts)

Part of correctly displaying this website’s content in a graphically appealing way across multiple browsers involves the use of script and font libraries, including Google Webfonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/). Google Webfonts are cached in your browser to avoid having to load them multiple times. If your browser doesn’t support Google Webfonts, or prevents their access, a standard font is used instead.
Calling script or font libraries automatically establishes a connection to the library operator. It is theoretically possible for library operators to collect data. However, it is unclear if and for which purpose they do.

The data privacy policy of the library operator Google is available here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

Embedded YouTube videos

Some of our web pages include embedded YouTube videos. The operator of the relevant plugin is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. Visiting a web page that uses a YouTube plugin establishes a connection to YouTube servers. YouTube is informed which pages you visit. If you are logged into a YouTube account, YouTube can personally associate your surfing activities with you. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.

Starting a YouTube video stores a cookie from the provider in your browser. This cookie can collect information about your surfing activities.
Anyone who has deactivated the storage of Google Ad program cookies will also not have cookies stored when watching YouTube videos. However, YouTube does store other non-personally identifiable usage information in other cookies. If you wish to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in your browser.

Social plugins

Social plugins from the providers listed below are used on our web pages. You can identify these plugins by the respective company logo with which each is labeled.

These plugins may send (including personally identifiable) information to the service provider, who may use it. We employ a 2-click solution that prevents data from being sent to service providers without the explicit awareness and consent of users. In order for a social plugin to be activated, it must first be activated by clicking on the respective button. Only once a plugin is activated will it collect and transmit data to the service provider. We do not collect any personal information via social plugins or through their use.

We have no influence over the data that an activated plugin collects or how it is used by the provider. At this time, it must be assumed that a direct connection to the provider’s services is established and that, at a minimum, the IP address and device-related information are collected and used. It is also possible that the service provider will attempt to store cookies on the device used. For specific information on which data is collected and how it is used, please refer to the privacy policy of the respective service provider. Note: If you are also logged into Facebook, Facebook can identify you as a visitor to a specific page.

We have embedded social media buttons from the following companies:
Facebook Inc. (1601 S. California Ave – Palo Alto – CA 94304 – USA)
Twitter Inc. (795 Folsom St. – Suite 600 – San Francisco – CA 94107 – USA)

Google AdWords

Our website uses Google Conversion Tracking. If you reached our website from a Google ad, Google AdWords places a cookie on your device. This conversion tracking cookie is placed when a user clicks on a Google ad. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used to personally identify you. When a user visits certain pages on our website, and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can see that the user clicked on the ad and was forwarded to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a unique cookie. This means that these cookies cannot be tracked beyond the AdWords customer’s website. The information collected by conversion cookies is used to generate conversion statistics for those AdWords customers who have opted in to conversion tracking. These customers can see the total number of users who have clicked their ads and been forwarded to a page tagged for conversion tracking. They do not receive any information that allows them to personally identify users.

If you wish to opt out of tracking, you can prevent the required cookie from being placed. Options include your browser setting that generally deactivates the storage of cookies or setting your browser to block cookies from the domain “googleleadservices.com”.

Please note that you should not delete opt-out cookies if you want to prevent measurement data from being recorded. If you delete all the cookies in your browser, you will have to store the relevant opt-out cookie again.

Use of Google Remarketing

This website uses the remarketing feature provided by Google Inc. This feature is used to display website visitors within the Google ad network with customized ad selections. A cookie is stored on the website visitor’s browser, which makes it possible to identify the visitors to websites that are part of the Google advertising network. Visitors can be displayed advertising relevant to content on previously visited websites that use the Google remarketing feature.

According to Google, this process does not collect any personal information. However, anyone who does not wish to use the Google remarketing feature can deactivate it by applying the appropriate settings under http://www.google.com/settings/ads. Alternatively, you can deactivate the use of cookies for interest-related advertising via the network advertising initiative by following the instructions provided at http://optout.networkadvertising.org.
