Data Protection Statement

1. Content of the online offer:

The author assumes no responsibility for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Claims for liability against the author relating to damage of a tangible or non-tangible nature caused by the use or non-use of any information, or through the use of incorrect or incomplete information, are excluded, except in the case of demonstrably intentional or grossly negligent behaviour on the part of the author. All offers are non-binding and without obligation. The author expressly reserves the right to alter, add to or delete sections of the website or the entire offer without prior notice, or to cease publication temporarily or permanently.

2. Cross references and links:

Liability for direct or indirect references to external websites („hyperlinks“) that lie outside the responsibility of the author would enter into force solely in cases where the author is aware of the content, and where it would be technically possible and reasonable for them to prevent the use of illegal content. The author hereby expressly declares that, at the time the links were inserted, no illegal content was found on the linked pages. The author has no influence on the current and future form, content or authorship of the linked/referenced sites. The author therefore expressly disassociates itself from all content of all linked sites that is altered after the creation of the link. This declaration applies to all links and references on the author’s own website, as well as to external entries in the guest books, discussion forums, link directories, mailing lists, and all other types of databases to which external access is possible, set up by the author. The provider of the linked website, and not the party that merely provided the link, is solely liable for illegal, incorrect, or incomplete content on that website, and in particular for damages resulting from the use or non-use of such content.

3. Copyright and trademark law:

The author endeavours to observe copyright law in all publications of the graphics, audio files, video sequences, and texts used and to use their own graphics, audio files, video sequences, and texts or only access licence-free graphics, sound files, video sequences and texts. All brand names and trademarks mentioned on the website, including those protected by third parties, are fully subject to the provisions of the applicable trademark law and to the ownership rights of the respective registered owners. A mere mention does not imply that trademarks are not protected by third party rights! The copyright for any published material created by the author remains solely with the author of the site. The reproduction or use of such graphics, audio files, video sequences, and texts in other electronic or printed publications is forbidden without the express permission of the author.

4. Data protection:

Should the opportunity arise for visitors of the site to enter personal or business-related data (e-mail addresses, name, addresses), the entry of this data on the part of the user is on a voluntary basis. The use and payment of all offered services are also permitted, insofar as this is technically possible and reasonable, without the provision of such data, or through the entry of anonymous data or the use of an alias. The use of contact data published under the imprint or comparable information such as postal addresses, telephone or fax numbers and e-mail addresses by third parties for sending information that has not been expressly solicited is prohibited. Legal action against senders of so-called spam e-mails in violation of this prohibition is expressly reserved.

5. Legal validity of this disclaimer:

This disclaimer is to be regarded as part of the Internet offer from which a link was provided to this page. Insofar as any part of or individual formulation within this text is not, no longer or not fully in conformity with the respectively applicable law, the remaining parts of the document will remain unaffected in terms of their content and validity.

Note on Data Processing in Connection with Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited. If this website’s data controller is located outside the European Economic Area or Switzerland, then Google Analytics will be processed by Google LLC. Google LLC and Google Ireland Limited are hereinafter referred to as „Google“.

Google Analytics uses „cookies“, which are text files that are stored on the user’s computer and enable an analysis of the user’s visits to the website. The information generated by the cookie regarding the website visitor’s use of the website (including your IP address) is transmitted to a Google server and stored.

Google Analytics is used on this website exclusively with the extension „_anonymizeIp ()“. This extension ensures an anonymisation of the IP address by shortening and excludes a direct reference to persons. The IP address will be truncated by Google within the Member States of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the entire IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will not link the IP address transferred by the relevant browser as part of Google Analytics with any other data held by Google.

On behalf of the website operator, Google will use the information collected to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website activity and internet usage (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f, GDPR). The legitimate interest in data processing lies in the optimization of this website, the analysis of the use of the website and the adaptation of the content. The users‘ interests are adequately protected by the pseudonymisation.

Google LLC. is certified according to the so-called Privacy Shield (list entry here) and guarantees an appropriate level of data protection on this basis. The data sent and linked with cookies, user IDs or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 50 months. Once the retention period for a piece of data has expired, it will be automatically deleted in a process that is run once a month.

The website visitor can prevent collection by Google Analytics by adjusting the cookie settings for this website. In addition, you may object to the collection and storage of the IP address and the data generated by cookies at any time with future effect. The corresponding browser plug-in can be downloaded and installed under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Google reCAPTCHA
To protect inquiries you send through the internet, we use the reCAPTCHA service from Google Inc. The tool checks whether the input is made by a person or improperly by means of automated processing.

This service involves sending Google the IP address and any other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service. To that end, your input will be transmitted to Google and used there. Your IP address will be truncated by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the entire IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of this service on behalf of the operator of this website.

The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of reCAPTCHA is not conflated with other Google data. For more information about Google’s privacy policy, please visit:
