This Website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Irland ("Google"). Google Analytics uses Cookies to make it possible to analyze your use of our Website.

Information about your use of our Website generated by cookies, ex. Time, place and frequency of use of the Website, is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and saved there. When using Google Analytics, it may not be excluded, that apart from the IP address Google processes further personal data. Please be informed that such information may be transferred by Google to third parties, if this is required by law or if Google contracts third parties to process such data.

According to Google, Google will not associate your IP address with other personal data collected by Google.

You have the option to prevent Google from acquiring and processing data generated by cookies and data related to your use of our Website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing a Google-provided browser plugin. More information about Google Analytics Opt-out function can be found at: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en . Please be informed, that in such an event, not all functions of this Website may be available to you. This plug-in prevents Google Analytics from giving you information about your visit to the site.

The function of the respective social plug-in is activated in two stages. To activate a social plug-in, you have to click on the link on our website. This activates the social plug-in and your browser connects to the servers of the respective provider. With a second click you can now interact with the social plug-in and, for example, submit your recommendation. If you are already logged in to one of the social networks of the providers, the providers can directly assign the visit to this website to your profile. If you interact with the social plugins by clicking on them, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a server of the provider and stored there. The information may also be published to the social network and displayed under your contacts. If you would like to prevent such direct assignment of your data collected via our website to your profile, you must unsubscribe from your account of the respective provider before you visit our web pages.
