The purposes of the data processing by the responsible office and third parties

- You have granted your express consent to this,
- the processing is required in order to implement a contract with you,

the processing is necessary to protect legitimate interests, and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in not disclosing your data.
Erasure or blocking data
We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as necessary to achieve the purposes listed here or as provided by the various storage periods set forth by law. After the respective purpose ceases to exist, or these deadlines have been reached, the corresponding data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with statutory provisions.
We use encryption procedures (such as SSL) over HTTPS in order to protect your data during transfer, which corresponds to the current state of the art.

Using Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google, Inc. (hereinafter: Google). Google Analytics uses so-called “Cookies,” text data which is stored on your computer, and which make it possible to analyse your use of the website. The information produced by the cookies about your use of this website is, as a rule, transferred to a Google server in the USA, and stored there. In the case of activating IP anonymisation on our web pages, your IP addresses will, however, be shortened beforehand to use within the Member States of the EU or other treaty countries of the Treaty of the European Economic Community. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be forwarded to a Google server in the US, and shortened there. In an agreement with the operator of this website, Google uses this information in order to assess your use of the website, in order to make summary reports and to provide further reports on website use and internet use and related services from the website operator. The IP addresses found by Google Analytics from your browser will not be put together with other Google data.
The purpose of data processing is to evaluate the use of the website and to compile reports on website activities. Further related services may be provided on the basis of the use of the website and the Internet. Processing is based on the legitimate interests of the website operator.
You can prevent storage of cookies using an appropriate setting on your browser software; we refer to the fact, however, that in this case not all functions of this website can be fully used. You can in addition prevent the capture of the data by the cookies and the information about your use of the website data (including your IP address) to Google, as well as the processing of these data by Google, by downloading and installing the following browser plug-in by clicking on this link: Browser add-on to deactivate Google Analytics.
In addition to, or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can prohibit tracking by Google Analytics on our pages, by clicking on this link. This will therefore place an opt-out cookie on your device. This will prevent Google Analytics from collecting data from this website and this browser in the future as long as the cookie remains installed on your browser.
Changes to our data protection provisions
We reserve the right to change this data protection declaration so that it always corresponds to current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the GDPR, such as when introducing new services. The new data protection declaration will therefore apply when you visit again.
