With its ruling of 12 May 1998, the district court of Hamburg concluded that whosoever publicises a link shall be potentially co-liable for the content of the linked Internet pages. According to the district court, this can only be prevented by explicitly dissociating oneself from these contents. We have placed links to other Internet sites on our Internet pages. For all these links the following applies: We expressly emphasise that we have no influence on the design and content of the linked pages. We, therefore, expressly dissociate ourselves from all content of all linked sites. This declaration applies to all links on our sites and to all content of the pages to which the banners and links lead.

COLLECTION OF GENERAL INFORMATION
When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and the like. This pertains solely to information that does not permit any conclusions to be drawn about the person. This information is technically necessary to correctly deliver the content of web pages requested by you and is mandatory when using the Internet. Anonymous information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us in order to optimise our Internet presence and the technology behind it.
Like many other websites, we also use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. These automatically provide us with certain data, such as the IP address, the browser used, the operating system of your computer, and your connection to the Internet.
Cookies cannot be used to launch programs or to transfer viruses to a computer. Based on the information contained in cookies, we can facilitate your navigation and enable the correct display of our web pages.
In no case will the data collected by us be passed on to third parties or a link with personal data be established without your consent.
To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption techniques (such as SSL) over HTTPS.
If you contact us by e-mail or contact form, the information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing the request and for possible follow-up questions.

USE OF GOOGLE ANALYTICS
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (hereinafter: Google).

The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymisation on these websites, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in the other Contracting States to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities, and to provide other services related to website and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address provided by Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

EMBEDDED YOUTUBE VIDEOS
We embed YouTube videos on some of our websites. The corresponding plug-ins are operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plug-in, it will connect to YouTube’s servers. YouTube will be informed which pages you visit. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can assign your surfing behaviour to you personally. This can be prevented by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.
Anyone who has disabled the storage of cookies for the Google Ad program will not have to reckon with such cookies when watching YouTube videos. YouTube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent these, you must block the storage of cookies in your browser.
Our website uses Google Conversion Tracking. If you have reached our website via an advertisement delivered by Google, Google AdWords will place a cookie on your computer.

If the user visits certain pages on our website and the cookie has not expired, Google and we may recognise that the user clicked on the advertisement and was redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot be tracked through AdWords advertisers’ websites. The information gathered using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their advertisement and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users.
If you do not want to participate in the tracking, you can refuse the required placement of a cookie, for example via a browser setting that generally disables the automatic placement of cookies or by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain “googleleadservices.com”.
