complete protection against third-party access to transferred data cannot be ensured.

Cookies
Our website makes use of so-called cookies in order to recognize repeat use of our website
by the same user/internet connection subscriber. Cookies are small text files that your
internet browser downloads and stores on your computer. They are used to improve our
website and services. In most cases these are so-called “session cookies” that are deleted
once you leave our website.
To an extent, however, these cookies also pass along information used to automatically
recognize you. Recognition occurs through an IP address saved to the cookies. The
information thereby obtained is used to improve our services and to expedite your access to
the website.
You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting the settings on your browser
software accordingly. You should be aware, however, that by doing so you may not be able to
make full use of all the functions of our website.

Newsletter
Our website offers you the opportunity to subscribe to our newsletter. The newsletter
provides you periodically with information about our services. To receive our newsletter, we
require a valid email address. We will review the email address you provide for the purpose of
determining whether you are in fact the owner of the email address provided or whether the
actual owner of said address is authorized to receive the newsletter. When subscribing to our
newsletter, we will store your IP address as well as the date and time you subscribed. This
serves to protect us in the event a third party improperly and without your knowledge makes
use of your email address to subscribe to our newsletter. We will not collect any other data.
The data thereby collected is used solely for the purpose of receiving our newsletter. No data
is transferred to third parties. Nor is any of this information matched to any information that
other components of our website may collect. You may cancel your subscription to the
newsletter at any time. You will find additional details in the email confirming your subscription
as well as in each newsletter.

Contacting Us
On our website we offer you the opportunity to contact us, either by email and/or by using a

facilitating communications with the user. No data is transferred to third parties. Nor is any of
this information matched to any information that may be collected by other components of
our website.

Use of Google Analytics with anonymization
Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc., 1600
Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google“.
Google Analytics employs so-called “cookies“, text files that are stored to your computer in
order to facilitate an analysis of your use of the site.
The information generated by these cookies, such as time, place and frequency of your visits
to our site, including your IP address, is transmitted to Google’s location in the US and stored
there.
We use Google Analytics with an IP anonymization feature on our website. In doing so,
Google abbreviates and thereby anonymizes your IP address before transferring it from
member states of the European Union or signatory states to the Agreement on the European
Economic Area.
Google will use this information to evaluate your usage of our site, to compile reports on
website activity for us, and to provide other services related to website- and internet usage.
Google may also transfer this information to third parties if this is required by law or to the
extent this data is processed by third parties on Google´s behalf.
Google states that it will in never associate your IP address with other data held by Google.
You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting the settings on your browser
software accordingly. You should be aware, however, that by doing so you may not be able to
make full use of all the functions of our website.
Google also offers a disabling option for the most common browsers, thus providing you with
greater control over the data which is collected and processed by Google. If you enable this
option, no information regarding your website visit is transmitted to Google Analytics.
However, the activation does not prevent the transmission of information to us or to any other
web analytics services we may use. For more information about the disabling option provided
by Google, and how to enable this option, visit https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

Use of Facebook components
Our website employs components provided by facebook.com. Facebook is a service of
Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA.
Each time our website receives an access request equipped with a Facebook component,
the component prompts your browser to download an image of this Facebook component.
Through this process, Facebook is informed precisely which page of our website is being
visited.
When you access our site while logged into Facebook, Facebook uses information gathered
by this component to identify the precise page you are viewing and associates this
information to your personal account on Facebook. Whenever you click on the “Like“ button,
for example, or enter a comment, this information is transmitted to your personal account on
Facebook and stored there. In addition, Facebook is informed of your visit to our website.
This occurs regardless of whether you click on a component or not.
If you wish to prevent the transfer to and storage of data by Facebook about you and your
interaction with our website, you must first log out of Facebook before visiting our website.
The data protection policies of Facebook provide additional information, in particular about
the collection and use of data by Facebook, your rights in this regard as well as the options
available to you for protecting your privacy: https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/

Our website employs components provided by Twitter. Twitter is a service of Twitter Inc., 795
Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA.

We have no control over the data that Twitter collects in the process, or over the extent of the
data that Twitter collects. To the best of our knowledge, Twitter collects the URL of each

Use of YouTube components with enhanced data protection mode
On our website we use components (videos) of YouTube, LLC 901 Cherry Ave., 94066 San
Bruno, CA, USA, a company belonging to Google Inc., Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain
View, CA 94043, USA.
To this end, we use the “ – enhanced data protection mode – ” option provided by YouTube.
When you display a page that has an embedded video, a connection will be made to the
YouTube server and the content will appear on the website via a communication to your
browser.
According to the information provided by YouTube, in “ – enhanced data protection mode -”,
data is only transferred to the YouTube server, in particular which of our websites you have
visited, if you watch the video. If you are logged onto YouTube at the same time, this
information will be matched to your YouTube member account. You can prevent this from
happening by logging out of your member account before visiting our website.

Use of Vimeo components
We use Vimeo components on our site. Vimeo is a service of Vimeo LCC, 555 West 18th
Street, New York, New York 10011, USA. Whenever you visit our website, which is equipped
with such a component, this component causes the browser you are using to download a
corresponding display of the Vimeo component. When you visit our site and are at the same
time logged into Vimeo, Vimeo recognizes by means of the information collected by the
component, which specific page you are visiting and assigns this information to your personal
account at Vimeo. If, for example, you click on the “Play” button or make comments, this
information will be conveyed to your personal user account at Vimeo and stored there. In
addition, the information that you have visited our site will be passed on to Vimeo. This is
done regardless of whether you click on the component/comment or not.
If you want to prevent this transmission and storage of data by Vimeo about you and your
behaviour on our website, you must log out of Vimeo before you visit our site. Vimeo’s Privacy
Policy provides more detailed information concerning this, in particular regarding the
collection and use of data by Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/privacy

“Google“. If you access our site by way of a Google ad, a cookie is placed on your computer.
Cookies are small text files that your internet browser downloads and stores to your
computer. These so-called “conversion cookies” cease to be active after 30 days and are not
used to identify you personally. If you visit certain pages of our website while the cookie is still
active, we and Google know that you, as user, have clicked on ads placed on Google and
were redirected to our site. Google uses the information obtained through “conversion
cookies” to compile statistics for our website. These statistics tell us the total number of
users who have clicked on our ad as well as which pages of our site were then accessed by
each user. However, neither we nor other advertisers who use “Google-Adwords” receive any
kind of information that can be used to personally identify users. You can prevent the
installation of “conversion cookies” by making the appropriate change to your browser
settings, for example by setting your browser so that the automatic placement of cookies is
deactivated or by blocking cookies from the domain “googleadservices.com“.
