The use of our website is usually possible without providing personal information. As far as personal data is collected (for example name, residential address or email address) on our pages, this is done on a voluntary basis if possible. No personal data will be forwarded to any third parties without your express consent.
However, we have to advise that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating via email) always comes with a security risk. A complete data protection against access by third parties is not possible.
The use of the contact details, published in the framework of the index obligations, by third parties for the transmission of unsolicited advertisements and information material is herewith expressly prohibited. The owners of these pages explicitly reserve the right to take legal action in the event that unrequested advertising material is sent, such as in the form of spam.

Our website uses social plugins (“plugins”) from the social network facebook.com which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins are identified by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on blue tile or a “thumbs-up” sign) or by a note “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list and the look of the Facebook social plugins can be viewed here: http://developers.facebook.com/plugins.
If you call up one of our internet website pages which has a plugin of this kind, your browser sets up a direct link to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is passed by Facebook direct to your browser and integrated by it into the website. This means that we have no influence over the extent of the data which Facebook obtains with the help of this plugin and we therefore inform you according to our information status. Through integration of the plugin, Facebook obtains the information that you have called up the relevant page on our internet site. If you are logged on to Facebook, Facebook can allocate the visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugin, by using the “Like-it-Button”, for example, or by posting a commentary, the information will be given direct to Facebook by your browser and stored there. If you are not a Facebook member, there is still the possibility for Facebook to find out and store your IP address.
For information on the purpose and extent of data capture and the further processing and use of data by Facebook, as well your rights in this regard and turn-off options for the protection of your personal privacy, please refer to the http://www.facebook.com/policy.php.
If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to collect data about you via our internet website and to link this with your data stored on Facebook, you need to log off from Facebook before going to our website.
It is also possible to block Facebook Social Plugins using add-ons available for your browser, for example Facebook Blocker.
