Cookies cannot run any programs or place viruses on your computer. The purpose of cookies is to make the Internet service more user friendly and more effective as a whole.

Use of cookies

This website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and functions of which will be explained below:

  • Temporary cookies (see a)
  • Permanent cookies (see b)

a) Temporary cookies are automatically deleted once you close the browser. These include the session cookies in particular. These save a so-called session ID, by means of which various requests of your browser can be assigned to the joint session. By means of this process, your computer can be recognised once again if you return to our website. The session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.

b) Permanent cookies are automatically deleted after a prescribed period of time, which can vary depending on the cookie. You can delete the cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time.

You can configure your browser setting in accordance with your wishes and you can, for example, reject the acceptance of third party cookies or all cookies. However, we wish to point out that in such a case, you may not be able to use all functions of this website.

We also use cookies in order to be able to identify you during subsequent visits, should you hold an account with us. Otherwise, you would need to log in each time you visit.

The flash cookies which are used are not recorded by your browser, rather by your flash plugin. We also use HTML 5 storage objects, which are deposited on your end device. These objects save the necessary data regardless of the browser which you use and do not have an automatic expiry date. Should you not wish the processing of the flash cookies to take place, you need to install a corresponding add on, for example "Better Privacy" for Mozilla Firefox (https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/betterprivacy/) or the Adobe Flash Killer cookie for Google Chrome. The use of HTML5 storage objects can be prevented by using the private mode in your browser. We would also recommend that you regularly delete your cookies and browser history manually.

Further functions and services of our website

Alongside the use of our website solely for information purposes, we provide various services which you can use if interested. For these services, it is generally necessary for you to provide additional personal data, which we use to provide the respective service and for which the principles relating to data processing stated above apply.

In part, we also use external service providers to process your data. These were carefully selected and engaged by us, are bound by our instructions and are regularly monitored.

In addition, we can pass your personal data on to third parties, should campaign participation, competitions, the conclusion of contracts or similar services be offered by us together with partners. More detailed information can be obtained when you provide your personal data or in the description of the service below.

Should our service providers or partners have their place of business in a country outside of the European Economic Area (EEA), we will inform you of the consequences of this in the description of the service.

Objection to the processing of your data or revocation of consent

Should you have issued your consent to the processing of your data, you can revoke this at any time. Such a revocation affects the lawfulness of the processing of your personal data once you have issued it to us. The lawfulness of the data processing which took place prior to the issuing of the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Should we base the processing of your personal data on a balancing of interests, you can raise an objection to the processing. This is the case in particular if the processing is not necessary in order to fulfil a contract with you, which will be set out by us in the following description of the respective functions. When exercising such a right of revocation, we would kindly request you state the reasons why we should no longer process your personal data. In case of a justified objection by you, we will check the facts and will either suspend or adjust the data processing or inform you of our mandatory protectable reasons why we will continue the processing.

Google Analytics

This website uses the “Google Analytics” tool, a web analytics service of the Google  Inc. Company. “Google Analytics” uses so-called “cookies”. These are small text files that are placed on the computer of the user and thereby allow us to evaluate the use of this website.

Normally, the information generated by the cookie regarding the use of the website is transmitted to and stored by Google on a server in the USA. If the IP anonymisation is activated on the website, the IP address of the user will be truncated prior to transmission in the member states of the European Union and in other countries having signed the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address will be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there.

Google will use these data to analyse the use of the website and compile reports on the website traffic on behalf of the website operator as well as to develop further services relating to the use of the internet and the websites for the benefit of the website operators. The IP address, transmitted due to the use of the “Google” Analytics” tool, will not be associated with other data held by Google.

You can prevent cookies from being placed on your computer by adequately adjusting the setting of the browser software. Please note, however, that, doing this, you may no longer be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. You can also disable the cookies and thereby prevent Google from collecting and processing personal data regarding your use of this website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the opt-out browser add-on, which is available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. Otherwise you can use this link to deactivate Google Analytics.

Use of Userlike

This website uses Userlike, a live chat software provided by Userlike UG. Userlike uses "Cookies", which are text files placed on your computer and that enable having personal chats on this website. The data collected will not be used to identify a visitor personally and it is not aggregated with any personal data of this user.

Facebook

This website uses so-called social plugins (“Plugins”) of the Facebook social network, operated by the Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). These plugins are recognisable from the Facebook logo or the writing “Soziales Plug-in von Facebook” or “Facebook Social Plugin”. At the following link, you find an overview of the Facebook widgets and their symbols:        http://developers.facebook.com/plugins

When accessing a page of our website, which contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers, allowing Facebook to transmit content to your browser, which is then automatically uploaded onto and incorporated into the website.

Through the incorporation of the plugin into the website, Facebook gets the information that our website has been accessed by your browser, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not logged in to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is sent by your browser to and stored by Facebook on a server in the USA.

If you are logged into your user account, Facebook is able to assign the visit of our website to your user account. When you interact with such plugins, for example, pressing the “Like” button or writing a comment, this information is also transmitted to the Facebook server and stored there. Facebook will publish this information and display it to your Facebook friends.

Facebook may use this information for advertising and market research purposes as well as to make the Facebook pages more user-friendly. Facebook compiles user, interest and relation profiles, for example to evaluate your use of the website with regard to the advertisements displayed on its pages, inform other Facebook users about your visit of our website and develop further services relating to the use of Facebook.

If you do not want Facebook to be able to assign the information related to our website to your user account, you must log out from your Facebook account before accessing our website.

For further information regarding the purpose and the extent of the data collection and their use and processing by Facebook as well as your rights and configuration options to protect your privacy, please take a look at the privacy policy statement of Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php.

Google +1

Collection and Transmission of Information

The Google +1 button allows you to publish information worldwide. Google +1 makes personalised information about Google and our partners available to you and other users. Google will receive and store the information that you have activated the Google +1 button on a webpage as well as information about the website you have accessed when clicking on the Google +1 button. Your Google +1 content may be displayed along with your profile name and photo in Google services, for example research results and your Google profile, or in websites and advertisements that are shown in the internet.

Google records information about your Google +1 activities with the aim to improve its services for the benefit of the users. The use of the Google +1 feature requires a public, worldwide visible Google profile, which must contain at least a profile name. Google uses this name in all its services. In some cases, this name may replace another denomination assigned by the user when splitting the content of the Google +1 account. The identity of your Google profile may be displayed to other users who know your email address or hold other information that allows them to identify you personally.

Use of the collected data

Other than the purposes described above, Google will use the data provided by you in accordance with what is laid down in the privacy policy statement of Google. Google may publish aggregated statistics about the Google +1 activities of the users or forward them to fellow users and partners, for example, publishers, advertisers or affiliated websites.
