Data protection:
Where users are able to enter personal or business data on the website (email addresses, names, addresses etc.) the disclosure of such data on the part of users is purely voluntary. Users may also – to the extent technically possible and feasible – use and pay for all services offered without disclosing such data or by entering anonymised data or a pseudonym. Use by third parties of the contact information provided under “Legal information” or elsewhere, such as postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers and email addresses, to send information which has not been explicitly requested is not permitted. We expressly reserve the right to take legal action against senders of spam emails who have infringed this prohibition.
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 the website analyse 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 USA. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, for compiling reports on website activity for website operators and for providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.
In view of the discussion about the use of analytical tools with complete IP addresses, we would like to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the advanced “_anonymizeip()” option, which means that IP addresses are only further processed in an abbreviated manner so as to exclude direct reference to individuals.
