Data privacy statement
In this data privacy statement, you, the user of our website, will receive all the necessary information on how, to what extent and for what purpose we or third parties collect and use your data. Your data is collected and used strictly in accordance with the provisions of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the German Teleservices Act (TMG). We are especially committed to the confidentiality of your personal data and therefore work strictly within the confines set forth by legal provisions. We collect such personal data on a voluntary basis when possible. We only pass on such data to third parties with your express consent. For especially confidential data such as those in the exchange of payment information or with regard to your requests to us, we ensure a high level of security through the use of SSL encryption. We would like to take this opportunity, however, to highlight the general risks of Internet use, over which we have no control. Particularly in e-mail communications, without further precautions, your data may not be safe and in some cases may be collected by third parties.
Information, deletion, blocking
You can always receive information about your stored personal data at no charge as well as about the origin, recipient and purpose of data collection and data processing. Furthermore, you have the right to request the correction, blocking or deletion of your data. This excludes data retained based on legal provisions or such that is needed for the proper execution of business operations. In order to be able to implement a data block at any time, data is retained in a block file for verification purposes. If data is not included in a legal obligation to archive, we will delete your data on request. If the obligation to archive applies, we will block your data. For any questions or concerns on the correction, blocking or deletion of personal data, please refer to our data privacy officer using the contact information in this data privacy statement or at the address listed in the imprint.

On our website, we use functions from Google+. This social network is provided by Google Inc., located at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google+ makes it possible for you to publish material worldwide at the click of a button. Moreover, Google and its partners provide you with personalised contents. Google saves your rating (+1) on the contents and information of websites that you have assigned by clicking +1.
Your rating of +1 can be displayed with your profile name and photo in other Google services. Google collects your overall +1 activities. This collection makes it possible to optimise and personalise Google services for you. To use the Google+ platform, create a globally visible profile under a name you select. The selected name is used in other Google services as well. So, anyone who knows your e-mail address can also find their way to your Google+ profile.
Google uses the data collected within the scope of its data privacy provisions, including for generating statistics, which are consolidated and passed on to partner companies or used in other ways. You can find details on the use of data and the data privacy provisions at http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.
