Your personal data will only be given to third parties if this is necessary for contract processing or billing purposes pursuant to § 11 of the Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (Federal Data Protection Act) (BDSG) for order data processing or if you have given your prior consent. We will not sell your personal data to third parties. The information will only be provided to state institutions and agencies entitled to receive such information within the scope of binding legal regulations or if we are obligated to do so by court order.

Except for the cookie placed by Google Analytics, we only use so-called session cookies (also referred to as temporary cookies), meaning that these cookies are only saved for the duration of your use of one of our webpages. The purpose of these cookies is to identify your computer during a visit to our webpage when switching from one of our webpages to another of our webpages and to be able to determine the end of your visit.
The session cookies are deleted as soon as you end your browser session. For the Google-
cookie, see Item 6. in the Data Privacy Statement.
By means of the settings in your browser, you can determine for yourself whether cookies are placed and called up. You can completely deactivate the saving of cookies in your browser, limit it to certain websites, or configure your browser so that it automatically informs you as soon as cookies are to be placed and asks you for confirmation. However, for full function of our webpage, it is necessary to permit the so-called session cookies for technical reasons.
Here, we do not collect or save personal data in cookies.
We also do not use any technology that connects information collected by cookies to user data.
6. Google Analytics
“This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”).
Google Analytics uses so-called “Cookies”, text files that are saved on your computer and make an analysis of your use of the website possible. The information created by the cookie regarding your use of this website is transferred to a Google server in the USA and saved there. Google IP-anonymization “_anonymizeIp()” is used on this webpage, meaning that the IP-address of Google users from Member States of the European Union as well as from other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area will be truncated beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a server of Google in the USA and truncated there. The truncation of the IP address prevents it from being traced directly to a specific user. By order of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate the use of the website by the users, to compile reports regarding the website activities, and to perform additional services related to the use of the website and the Internet for the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be connected to other data by Google. You can prevent the saving of the cookies by adjusting your browser software accordingly. However, we would like to point out that you may not be able to use all functions of this website completely in this case. Furthermore, you can prevent the collection of data (incl. your IP address) created by cookies that relate to your use of the webpage as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link.
