We comply with these regulations. Personal data is treated in strict confidence and is neither sold nor passed on to third parties.
In close cooperation with our hosting providers, we make every effort to protect the databases as far as possible against unauthorised access, loss, misuse or falsification.
When you access our websites, the following data is stored in log files: IP address, date, time, browser request and general information transmitted on the operating system or browser. This usage data forms the basis for statistical, anonymous evaluations, so that trends can be identified, on the basis of which we can improve our offers accordingly.

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, in the event that IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand.
Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.
You can use the Google +1 button to publish information worldwide. The Google +1 button allows you and other users to receive personalized content from Google and its partners. Google stores both the information that you have given for any +1 content and information about the page you viewed when you clicked on +1. Your +1 may be displayed as clues along with your profile name and photo in Google services, such as search results or your Google Profile, or elsewhere on websites and ads on the web.
Google records information about your +1 activity in order to improve the Google Services for you and others.
In order to use the Google +1 button, you need a public Google profile that is visible worldwide and must contain at least the name chosen for the profile. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name may replace another name you've used when sharing content through your Google Account. The identity of your Google Profile may be visible to users who know your email address or have other identifying information about you.
