Access data / Server logfiles

The owner (or its webspace provider, respectively) collects data every time a user accesses this website (through what are known as server log files). Access data includes:

the name of the webpages and files accessed, the date and time of access, the volume of data transferred, reports on whether attempts to access content were successful, the type of browser and browser version used, the user’s operating system, the referrer URL (previously visited website), the IP address and the Internet provider.

The data is analyzed solely for statistical purposes to help operate, secure and optimize the website. However, the owner reserves the right to review the log files at a later time if there are reasonable grounds to suspect illegal use.


Contact

Whenever visitors establish contact with the website owner (for example by completing a contact form or via email) their user information is saved in order to process their inquiry and in the event follow-up questions arise.


Newsletter

Our newsletter is designed to keep you informed of our latest offers.

If you wish to receive our newsletter, we require you to provide us with a valid email address along with information that will enable us to verify whether you are the owner of the email address you enter and/or the owner of the email address consents to receiving our newsletter. We do not collect any further information. This data is used solely for the purpose of sending our newsletter and will not be forwarded to third parties.

When you register for our newsletter we will save your IP address and the date of your registration. This information is only stored as evidence in the event that a third party misappropriates an email address and registers for the newsletter without the knowledge of the authorized email recipient.

You may revoke your consent for us to save your data or email address or to use this information to send you our newsletter at any time. This may be accomplished via a link in the newsletter itself, in your profile area or by sending a message to the contact addresses listed above.

 

Use of third-party services and content

 

In some instances, this website may feature content provided by third parties, such as YouTube videos, directions and maps provided by Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics found on other websites. Using this content means that these external content providers (in the following referred to as “third-party providers”) will receive information concerning the user’s IP address. This is because it is not possible to send this information to the user’s browser without a valid IP address. Consequently, you must provide your IP address to view this content. We make a conscious effort only to use content from third parties who use IP address information exclusively to deliver the requested content. However, we have no way of influencing whether or not third parties save IP address information for statistical purposes. We will do our utmost to inform users of any such activity to the extent that we are aware of it.


Cookies

Cookies are small files that make it possible to save specific, device-related information on user access devices (PC, smartphone, or similar). They are designed to improve the user experience and thus benefit visitors to websites (e.g. by saving login information for later use). Cookies also serve to collect statistical data on how websites are used and analyze this information to improve content. Users can decide whether to accept or reject the use of cookies. Most browsers feature an option that enables users to limit or completely block saving cookies. However, it should be noted that use is restricted and less convenient without the use of cookies.

Use of Facebook social plugins

This website uses social plugins (“plugins”) from the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). These plugins are marked with one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on a blue tile background or “thumbs-up icon”) or the label “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list and appearance of Facebook social plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

Whenever a user accesses a webpage on this website that contains one of these plugins, the user’s browser establishes a direct link to Facebook’s servers. The plugin content is transferred from Facebook directly to your browser, which integrates the content into the Web page. This website thus has no influence over the scope of data that Facebook can access with the help of this plugin and hereby informs users of the following:

Integrating the plugin sends information to Facebook indicating that a user has accessed the corresponding page on this website. If the user is logged on to Facebook, Facebook can share information about the user’s visit with the user’s Facebook account. When a user interacts with plugins, for example by pressing the “Like” button or submitting a comment, the corresponding information is transferred from the user’s browser directly to Facebook and saved there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, it is still possible for Facebook to identify and save IP address information. According to Facebook, only anonymized IP addresses are saved in Germany.

For information on the purpose and scope of the information shared and how Facebook uses this data along with users’ respective rights and how users can manage their privacy settings, please refer to Facebook’s Privacy Policy: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

Users who are members of Facebook and do not want information about their visit to this website to be collected or linked to their Facebook accounts will need to log off of Facebook before visiting this website.

It is also possible to block Facebook social plugins with the help of browser add-ons such as “Facebook Blocker”.


+1 Button by Google+

This website uses the “+1″ button developed by the Google Plus social network, operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”). The button can by identified by a “+1″ on a white or colored background.

Whenever a user accesses a webpage on this website that contains one of these plugins, the user’s browser establishes a direct link to Google’s servers. The content of Google’s “+1″ button is transferred from Google directly to the user’s browser. The website thus has no influence over the scope of the data that Google can access with this button. According to Google, no personal data is collected unless the user clicks on the button. This type of data, including the IP address among other information, is only gathered and processed if a user is logged on.

For information on the purpose and scope of the information shared and how Google uses this data along with users’ respective rights and how users can manage their privacy settings, please refer to Google’s Privacy Policy for the “+1″ button: http://www.google.com/intl/de/+/policy/+1button.html and the FAQ: http://www.google.com/intl/de/+1/button/.


Revocation, changes, corrections and updates

The user is entitled to receive information free of charge regarding any personal data that is saved. In addition, the user is entitled to request corrections to inaccurate information or ask the website owner to block or delete personal data as long as this request does not violate any legal obligation to preserve information.
