The legal bases for privacy can be found in the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the German Telemedia Act (TMG).
Access data/ Server log files
The provider (or its webspace provider) collects data every time the site is accessed (so-called server log files). The access data includes:
The name of the retrieved website, file, data and time of visit, volume of data transferred, report of successful retrieval, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the site previously visited), IP address and the requesting provider.
The provider uses the log data to conduct statistical analyses for operational, security and website optimisation purposes. However, the provider reserves the right to subsequently check the log data if there is concrete evidence to warrant suspicion of illegal usage.
Handling personal data
Personal data is information which can help identify a person, i.e. details which can be traced back to a person. This includes name, email address or telephone number, but also details about preferences, hobbies, memberships or the websites someone views.
Personal data is only collected, used and forwarded by the provider if this is permitted by law or the user consents to it.
When the provider is contacted (e.g. via the contact form or by email), the user’s details are stored for the purposes of processing the request, and in the event of subsequent questions.
If you wish to apply online with the provider, please note the separate Privacy statement Privacy statement for online applications.
Our newsletter informs you about us and our services. If you wish to receive the newsletter, we require a valid email address, as well as information allowing us to check that you are the owner of the stated email address or that the owner agrees to receive the newsletter. No further data is collected. This data is only used to send out the newsletter, and is not shared with third parties.
When you sign up to the newsletter, we store your IP address and date of registration. This purely serves as proof in the event a third party misuses an email address and signs up for the newsletter without the beneficiary’s knowledge.

Involving third parties and third-party content
It is possible that this website may include third-party content, e.g. YouTube videos, Google Maps material, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites. This always requires the providers of this content (hereinafter “third-party providers”) to store users’ IP addresses, because without these, they would not be able to send the content to the respective user’s browser. The IP address is thus required in order for this content to be displayed. We strive to only use content whose respective providers only use IP addresses to deliver said content. We cannot, however, control if the third-party providers store the IP addresses for statistical purposes. If we become aware of this, we inform the users.
Cookies are small files enabling specific, device-based information to be stored on users’ access device (PC, Smartphone etc.). They serve to make websites user-friendly, and therefore help users (e.g. storing login details), but also to record the statistical data of the website usage, and analyse it for optimisation purposes. Users can control cookie usage. Most browsers have an option which can restrict or completely inhibit cookie storage. Please note, however, that usage and user experience are impeded when cookies are disabled.

The information generated by the cookie in relation to usage of this website is stored on the provider’s server in Germany.

Using Facebook Social Plugins
This website uses Social Plugins ("plugins") run by the social network facebook.com, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). The plugins are identified by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on a blue square or a “thumbs up” symbol) or denoted by the addendum “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list and appearance of the Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
If a user retrieves a page of this website containing a social plugin, their browser establishes a direct connection with Facebook’s servers. Facebook sends the plugin’s content straight to your browser, which incorporates it into the website. The provider thus has no control over the extent of the data Facebook collects using this plugin, and thus informs the user as per its level of knowledge:
Plugin integration advises Facebook that a user has retrieved the relevant page of the website. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can match the visit to the user’s Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, e.g. by pressing the Like button or posting a comment, the relevant information is sent by their browser directly to Facebook, where it is saved. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still a possibility of Facebook identifying and storing their IP address. According to Facebook, only anonymised IP addresses are stored in Germany.
The purpose and scope of the data collection, as well as information on the further processing and usage of the data by Facebook, and the associated rights and setting options for protecting user privacy, can be viewed in Facebook’s privacy statement: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.
If a user is a member of Facebook, and does not want Facebook to collect personal data through this website or link it with their member data stored on Facebook, they must log out of Facebook before visiting the website.
Facebook Social Plugins can also be blocked using add-ons for your browser, such as the "Facebook Blocker".
+1 Google+ button
This website uses the +1 button run by the social network Google Plus, operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”). The button is denoted by the +1 symbol on a white or coloured background.
If a user retrieves a page of this website containing this button, their browser establishes a direct connection with Google’s servers. Google sends the content of the +1 button directly to the browser, which incorporates the button into the website. The provider thus has no control over the extent of the data collected by Google through the button. According to Google, no personal data is collected unless the button is clicked. This data, including IP address, is only collected and processed for logged-in members.
The purpose and scope of the data collection, as well as information on the further processing and usage of the data by Google, and the associated rights and setting options for protecting user privacy, can be viewed in Google’s privacy statement for the +1 button: http://www.google.com/intl/de/+/policy/+1button.htmland FAQ: http://www.google.com/intl/de/+1/button/..
This website uses Twitter buttons, provided by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. They are denoted by terms such as "Twitter" or "Follow", combined with a stylised blue bird. These buttons enable an article or page of this website to be shared on Twitter, or the provider to be followed on Twitter.
If a user retrieves a page of this website containing such a button, their browser establishes a direct connection with Twitter’s servers. Twitter sends the content of the Twitter buttons directly to the user’s browser. The provider thus has no control over the extent of the data Twitter collects using this plugin, and informs the user as per its level of knowledge, according to which only the user’s IP address and the URL of the respective website activating the button are sent, but are not used for purposes other than displaying the button.
Further information on this can be found in Twitter’s privacy statement at http://twitter.com/privacy.
