Data protection

The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.

The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data. Insofar as personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail addresses) is collected on our pages, this is always done, as far as possible, on a voluntary basis. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Personal data

Personal data is information that can be used to find out your identity. This includes information such as your real name, address, postal address and telephone number. Information that is not directly related to your real identity (such as favourite websites or number of users of a site) is not included.

In principle, you can use our online services without disclosing your identity. If you register for one of our personalised services, order a product or take out a subscription, we will ask you for your name and other personal information. It is your free decision whether you enter this data.

We store your data on specially protected servers in Germany. Access is only possible for a few specially authorised persons who are involved in the technical, commercial or editorial support of the servers.

Storage of IP addresses

In connection with your access, data is stored on our servers for security purposes that may allow identification (for example, IP address, date, time and pages viewed). No person-related utilisation takes place. We reserve the right to statistically evaluate anonymised data records.

We store IP addresses for a maximum period of seven days. The storage is done for data security reasons to ensure the stability and operational security of our system.

Privacy policy for the use of YouTube

Our site uses the provider YouTube LLC , 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, represented by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, for the integration of videos. Normally, when you call up a page with embedded videos, your IP address is already sent to YouTube and cookies are installed on your computer. However, we have embedded our YouTube videos with the extended data protection mode (in this case, YouTube still contacts Google's Double Klick service, but according to Google's privacy policy, personal data is not evaluated). This means that YouTube no longer stores any information about visitors unless they watch the video. If you click on the video, your IP address is transmitted to YouTube and YouTube learns that you have watched the video. If you are logged in to YouTube, this information is also assigned to your user account (you can prevent this by logging out of YouTube before viewing the video).

We have no knowledge of and no influence on the possible collection and use of your data by YouTube. You can find more information in YouTube's privacy policy at www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ see below. In addition, we refer to our general presentation in this data protection declaration for the general handling and deactivation of cookies.
