Please be aware that data transfer via the internet is subject to security risks and, therefore, complete protection against third-party access to transferred data cannot be ensured.

Our website makes use of so-called cookies in order to recognize repeat use of our website by the same user/internet connection subscriber. Cookies are small text files that your internet browser downloads and stores on your computer. They are used to improve our website and services. In most cases these are so-called "session cookies" that are deleted once you leave our website.

To an extent, however, these cookies also pass along information used to automatically recognize you. Recognition occurs through an IP address saved to the cookies. The information thereby obtained is used to improve our services and to expedite your access to the website.

You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting the settings on your browser software accordingly. You should be aware, however, that by doing so you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of our website.

Server Data (Server-Log files)
For technical reasons, data such as the following, which your internet browser transmits to us or to our web space provider, 1&1 Internet SE, Elgendorfer Straße 57, D-56410 Montabaur, Germany, (so called server log files), is collected: - type and version of the browser you use - operating system - websites that linked you to our site (referrer URL) - websites that you visit - date and time of your visit - your Internet Protocol (IP) address. This anonymous data is stored separately from any personal information you may have provided, thereby making it impossible to connect it to any particular person. The data is used for statistical purposes in order to improve our website and services.

Use of 1&1 WebAnalytics
This website uses 1&1 WebAnalytics, an application made available by our provider 1&1 Internet SE, Elgendorfer Straße 57, D-56410 Montabaur, Germany ("1&1") for the statistical analysis of the user access. Every access to our website and every retrieval of data and files will be recorded, in essence the IP-Address of the computer initiating the inquiry, name of the file retrieved, date and time of the retrieval, web browser and inquiring domain (server-log files). This merely serves internal system-related and statistical purposes. 1&1 WebAnalytics stores user data for a period of eight weeks, after which they will be deleted again. To ensure protection of personal data, 1&1 WebAnalytics does not use any cookies. Moreover, the IP address and browser ID are stored in anonymised form in order to avoid conclusions from being drawn concerning individual users.

Contacting Us
On our website we offer you the opportunity to contact us, either by email and/or by using a contact form. In such event, information provided by the user is stored for the purpose of facilitating communications with the user. No data is transferred to third parties. Nor is any of this information matched to any information that may be collected by other components of our website.


On the basis of the Federal Data Protection Act, you may contact us at no cost if you have questions relating to the collection, processing or use of your personal information, if you wish to request the correction, blocking or deletion of the same, or if you wish to cancel explicitly granted consent. Please note that you have the right to have incorrect data corrected or to have personal data deleted, where such claim is not barred by any legal obligation to retain this data.
