Data protection

The operator of this website takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. We will treat your personal data as confidential and will handle it in accordance with German and European data protection regulations and this data protection policy. No personal data need be entered for our website to be accessed.

We must point out that the transmission of data on the Internet (e.g. in the form of e-mail correspondence) is subject to lapses in security. Although we employ the SSL protocol, it is impossible for us to guarantee that third parties will not obtain access to your data.

Liability for links

Our website includes links to external websites operated by third parties; we have no influence over the content of these sites. Thus, we assume no liability with regard to the content of these third-party sites. The operator or owner of the site linked to our website is the party responsible for third-party contents. At the time each link was included in our site, the corresponding website was examined to ensure its contents did not constitute a violation of the law. We were not able to detect any such violations at the time each link was included in our site. In the absence of specific circumstances indicating that a law is being violated, we cannot reasonably be expected to continually monitor the sites whose links are included in our website. Should we become aware of a violation of the law, we will immediately remove the link(s) in question.

  • Host name of the computer gaining access
  • Date and time of server query

These data are not attributable to certain persons. No attempt is made to combine these data with data from other sources. We reserve the right to monitor these data retroactively if anything is brought to our attention that might indicate improper use.
