Contract data processing
We have concluded a contract with Google for commissioned data processing and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
We use the function "Activate IP anonymization" on this website. However, this will cause your IP address to be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states that are parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred 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 the website activities and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with the use of the website and the internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google.

This data comes from interest-based advertising by Google as well as from visitor data from third parties. This data cannot be attributed to any specific person. You can disable this feature at any time by changing the ad settings in your Google Account, or generally prohibit Google Analytics from collecting your information as described in the "Opting out of data collection" section.

Our pages use functions of Google+. Provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Collection and sharing of information: You can use the Google+ button to publish information worldwide. The Google+ button allows you and others to receive personalized content from Google and our partners. Google stores both the information that you gave for a +1 content and information about the page you viewed when you clicked +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. To use the Google+ button, you must have a public Google profile that is visible worldwide and must contain at least the name you choose for your profile. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name may also replace another name that you used when sharing content through your Google Account. The identity of your Google Profile may be displayed to users who know your email address or have other identifying information about you.
Our website uses the analysis service etracker. The provider is etracker GmbH, Erste Brunnenstraße 1, 20459 Hamburg Germany. User profiles can be created from the data under a pseudonym.
