Data Protection 

Responsibility for contents
As service providers, we are responsible pursuant to §7.1 of the TMG for our own contents on these pages pursuant to the general legislation. Pursuant to §8 to §10 of the TMG, however, as service providers we are not obliged to monitor or possibly research transmitted or saved third-party information which refers to an unlawful activity. Obligations to remove or block usage of information pursuant to the general legislation remains unaffected hereby. However, liability in this respect is possible only from the point in time when knowledge of a concrete legal infringement or breach is acquired. If corresponding legal infringements or breaches become known, we will remove that content without delay.

Responsibility for links
Our offer contains links to external third-party websites on whose contents we have no influence. For this reason, we cannot give any guarantee with respect to this third-party content, either. The respective provider or operator of the website is always responsible for the contents of the linked pages. The linked pages were checked at the time of linking for potential legal breaches. Unlawful content was not identifiable at the time of linking. Permanent checking of the contents of the linked pages is not reasonable, however, without concrete indications of a legal infringement or breach. If corresponding legal infringements or breaches become known, we will remove such links without delay.

The contents and works on these pages which have been created by the operator of the website are subject to German copyright. Copying, processing, dissemination and any kind of exploitation outside the boundaries of copyright law requires written consent from the respective author or creator. Downloads and copies of this page are only permitted for private, non-commercial use. Insofar as the contents on this page have not been created by the operator, third-party copyright is complied with. In particular, third-party content is labelled as such. If despite this you become aware of a copyright breach, we kindly request corresponding notification. If corresponding legal infringements or breaches become known, we will remove such content without delay.

Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files which are saved on your computer and which enable an analysis of your usage of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your usage of this website (including your IP address) is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and saved there. Google can use this information in order to evaluate your usage of the website, in order to compile reports about the website activities for the website operators, and in order to render other services associated with the website usage and Internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where applicable, insofar as this is legally prescribed or insofar as third parties process that data on Google’s behalf. In no event will Google associate your IP address with other Google data. You can prevent the installation of cookies by configuring your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that in such case you might not be able to use all of the functions of this website to the full extent. By using this website, you declare yourself in agreement with the processing of the data collected about you by Google in the above-described manner and for the abovementioned purpose.
Data collection and storage can be objected to. This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()", and therefore IP addresses are only further processed in abbreviated form in order to prevent being directly linked to a particular individual.

The use of Google Web Fonts takes place in the interest of a standardised and attractive display of our online services.
