At your visit for technical reasons the following data are recorded temporarily: Websites you are visiting, date and time of accessing our website, website from which you are visiting, browser type, operating system and your internet protocol address (IP). We collect personal data only if you complete our contact form. In that case, we just use them for the request and delete them if they are not needed anymore. We only transfer your data to any third parties if it is necessary for processing your request.

They accelerate the navigation on our website and allow us to measure the page impressions. Therefore, cookies help us to identify popular pages of our website.

- Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help us to analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
In case IP-anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be truncated within the area of Member States of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases the whole IP address will be first transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. The IP-anonymization is active on this website.
Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing them other services relating to website activity and internet usage.
- Facebook and Social Plugins
This website employs social plugins (“plugins”) from the social networking site Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins bear the Facebook logo or the words “Facebook Social Plugin”. You can find an overview of the Facebook plugins and see what they look like here: http://developers.facebook.com/plugins
Whenever you call up one of our website’s pages that contains such a plugin, your browser will directly connect to the Facebook servers. Facebook directly transmits the plugin’s content to your browser, which then incorporates it into the webpage.
The incorporation of the plugin lets Facebook know that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not logged into Facebook at the time. Your browser transmits this information (including your IP address) directly to a Facebook server in the USA, where it is stored.
If you are logged into Facebook at the time, Facebook can directly correlate your visit to our website to your Facebook account. Should you interact with the plugins (e.g. click on the “Like” button or post a comment), your browser will transmit this information directly to a Facebook server, where it is stored. In addition, this information will be published on Facebook and shown to your Facebook friends.
Facebook can use this information for advertising purposes, market research and the appropriate design of the Facebook web pages. To do this, Facebook creates use, interest and relationship profiles, e.g. in order to evaluate your use of our website with regard to the ads shown to you when you visit Facebook, notify other Facebook users of your activities on our website, and provide additional services connected with the use of Facebook.
If you do not wish Facebook to assign the data collected by our Website to your Facebook account, you have to logout from Facebook before you visit our website.
Please consult Facebook’s data protection information to find out more about the purpose and scope of Facebook’s data collection activities as well as the data’s further processing and use by Facebook. There, you will also find out more about your corresponding rights and what settings you can use to protect your privacy: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php
