Data protection declaration for SSL / TLS encryption

If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, third parties will not read the data you transmit to us.
If you send us inquiries using the contact form, your details from the inquiry form (i.e., including the contact details you provided there) will be stored by us to process the request and in case of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

Data protection declaration for Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Ireland Limited. Suppose the person responsible for data processing on this website is outside the European Economic Area or Switzerland. In that case, Google Analytics data processing is carried out by Google LLC. Google LLC and Google Ireland Limited are from now on referred to as "Google."
We can use the statistics obtained to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. This website also uses Google Analytics for a cross-device analysis of visitor flows, which is carried out via a user ID. If you have a Google user account, you can deactivate the cross-device analysis of your usage in the settings there under "My data," "Personal data."
The legal basis for using Google Analytics is Article 6, Paragraph 1, Sentence 1, Letter f of the GDPR. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. We would like to point out that on this website, Google Analytics has added the code «_anonymizeIp (),» which has been extended to ensure an anonymous collection of IP addresses. As a result, IP addresses are further processed in abbreviated form so that personal references can be ruled out. For example, suppose the data collected about you can be linked to a person. In that case, this will be excluded immediately, and the personal data will be deleted immediately.
The full IP address will only be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activity, and provide the website operator with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.
You can also prevent the use of Google Analytics by clicking on this link: Deactivate Google Analytics. This saves a so-called opt-out cookie on your data carrier, which prevents the processing of personal data by Google Analytics. Please note that if you delete all cookies on your device, these opt-out cookies will also be deleted, i.e., you will have to set the opt-out cookies again if you want to continue to prevent this form of data collection. The opt-out cookies are set per browser and computer/device. Therefore, they must be activated separately for each browser, computer, or device.
