Our website can generally be used without entering your personal data. Where personal data is entered on our websites (e.g. name, address or e-mail address), this is always on a voluntary basis where possible and exclusively for the purpose specified. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your explicit consent.
We would like to point out that online data transfer (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security loopholes. This means seamless protection against access by third parties is not possible.
Contact information published by third parties in line with the obligation to provide legal information may explicitly not be used for sending advertising and information materials which have not specifically been requested. The operators of the page specifically reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited sending of advertising, e.g. via spam e-mails.
Data Privacy Statement for the use of Facebook plug-ins (“Like” button)
Our website integrates plug-ins for the social network Facebook (Facebook Inc., 1601 South Willow Road, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA). You will recognise Facebook plug-ins by the Facebook logo or the “Like” buttons on our website. Please find an overview of the various Facebook plug-ins here:
When you visit our website, the plug-in establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. This enables Facebook to know that you ‒ with your IP address ‒ have visited their website. If you click the Facebook “Like” button while you are signed in to your Facebook account, you can link the content of our website to your Facebook profile. This means that Facebook can allocate this interaction with our website to your user account. We would like to point out that we, as website operators, do not receive any notification about the content of the conveyed data or how it is used by Facebook. Further information about this topic can be found in the Facebook Data Privacy Statement at
If you do not want Facebook to be able to allocate your use of our website to your Facebook user account, please sign out of your Facebook account.

Data Privacy Statement for the use of Google +1
Gathering and forwarding of information:
The Google +1 button enables you publish information all over the world. You and other users obtain via the Google +1 personalised content from Google and from our partners. Google stores the information that you have clicked +1 for a given content and also information about the site that you were viewing when you clicked the button. Your +1 might be displayed as advice, along with your profile name and photo, in Google services such as search results or your Google profile, or in other locations on websites and advertisements.
Google records information about your +1 activities in order to improve Google services for you and others. To be able to use the +1 button you must have a Google profile, which is public and visible from anywhere in the world, which must contain at least a profile name. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name can also replace another name that you may have used when sharing content via your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be shown to users who know your email address or have access to other identifying information about you.
Use of the information gathered
In addition to the purposes specified above, the information provided by you is used in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Google data protection regulations. Google may publish summarised statistics about users’ +1 activities or pass them to other users and partners such as publishers, advertisers or linked websites.
