My website can generally be used without entering personal data. Where personal data is entered on my website (e.g. name or e-mail address), this is always on a voluntary basis where possible and exclusively for the purpose specified. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your explicit consent.
I would like to point out that online data transfer (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security loopholes. This means seamless protection against access by third parties is not possible.
Contact information published by third parties in line with the obligation to provide legal information may explicitly not be used for sending advertising and information materials which have not specifically been requested. The operator of the page specifically reserves the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited sending of advertising, e.g. via spam e-mails.
Of course, you can also view my website without cookies. However, most browsers accept cookies automatically. You can prevent cookies being saved by changing your browser settings. However, not accepting cookies can impede the functionality of my website.
Cookies will not harm your PC and do not contain any viruses or other tools which can cause damage.
The website uses Google Analytics, an internet evaluation service from Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses what are known as “cookies” – these are text files which are stored on your computer to enable an analysis of website use by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and saved. If IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address is first truncated within member states of the European Union or other signatory states to the agreement on the European Economic Area.
Only in exceptional circumstances is the full address sent to a Google server in the USA and then truncated. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google uses this information to evaluate your use of the website, to prepare reports of website activities and to provide other services associated with website and internet usage for the website operator. The IP address transferred by your browser to Google Analytics is not amalgamated with any other Google data.
You can prevent cookies being saved by changing a setting in your browser software, but please be aware that this may mean you are not able to use all the website functions to their full extent. You can also prevent the recording of the data generated by the cookie relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin from the link below: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
For uniform representation of fonts, this page uses web fonts provided by Google. When you open a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.
When you call up a page of my website that contains a social plugin, your browser makes a direct connection with Google servers. Google thus becomes aware that my web page was accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web fonts is done in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of my website. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer.
This website uses Google Maps API to visually present geographical information. Google Maps is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
When you use Google Maps, information about the use of my website, including your IP address, is transmitted to and stored on a server belonging to Google in the USA. By using my website you confirm that in this regard you are in agreement with the recording, processing and use of your automatically collected data by Google, one of its representatives, or third-party suppliers.
