This website uses “cookies” from / Automattic Inc. and from selected partners. To find out more, as well as how to remove or block these, see here: Our Cookie Policy:

Use of Google Analytics

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files – saved on your computer – which allow an analysis of your usage of the website. The analysis drawn up by Google provides us with information about website activities and about website and Internet use. Your technical data is evaluated anonymously and only for statistical purposes in order constantly to optimise our website and to make our online offers even more attractive. Your privacy remains protected; the anonymous data cannot result in an individual person being identified. The generated information is typically transmitted to a server belonging to Google in the USA and saved there. Apart from in exceptional cases where Google only anonymises the IP address in the USA, your IP address is directly abbreviated by Google in the member states of the European Union or in other signatory countries to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The transmitted IP address is not combined with other data by Google. You can prevent the saving of cookies and the processing of data by Google by making the corresponding settings in your browser software. This is the current link for downloading and installing the corresponding browser plugin. We must, however, point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of our website to their full extent.

Apart from the option to install the browser add-on, there is another alternative for preventing the collection of data by Google Analytics. It is particularly interesting for users of mobile devices. To see this alternative, please click on (javascript:gaOptout()). This installs a so-called opt-out cookie, which prevents data tracking on this website. The function remains until the cookie is deleted. When the cookie has been deleted, it is simply a case of calling up the link once more.

For more information about the conditions of use and data protection, please see the following sites:

Social Plugins

Our website uses social plugins (“plugins”) from the social network, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins can be recognised by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on a blue tile or a “thumbs-up” sign) or are marked with the suffix “Facebook Social Plugin”. Further information about Facebook social plugins can be found here: If you access a page of our website which contains one of these plugins, your browser automatically opens a direct link to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser and therefore integrated into the website. We therefore have no influence on the extent of the data collected by Facebook using this plugin, but this is what we do know: By integrating the plugins, Facebook obtains information that you accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can link your visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins by, for example, using the “Like Button” or leaving a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and saved there. If you are not a Facebook member, it is still possible that Facebook will find out and save your IP address. The purpose and extent of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as your rights in this respect and possible settings in order to protect your privacy, can be seen in Facebook’s data protection information at: If, as a Facebook member, you do not want Facebook to collect data via our website and link it to your Facebook account, you have to log out of Facebook before visiting our website.
