We use on our website so called cookies to enable for you the use of certain functions. Cookies are little files which are stored on your device.
We use persistent cookies which stay on your device and enable us to recognize your browser at the next visit.
You can manage the acceptance or the exclusion of cookies in your browser. You can choose if you decide seperately about accepting cookies as well as their acceptance in specific cases or also exclude them in general. We would like to point out that the non-application of cookies can lead to limited functionality of our website.
We are using the web analysis tool „Piwik“ (www.piwik.org) on our website. „Piwik“ is an open-source-software with which we can compile detailled statistics about the visitors of our website.
The information collected includes for example the used search engines and keywords, languages used, the origin of the visitors, browsers used and their plugins, refferer, duration of the visit, start page, exit points and drop-out rates. These data help to improve our website and make it more attractive for our visitors.
„Piwik“ is installed on our webserver and saves data exclusively on our server. The web analysis with „Piwik“ saves so called „cookies“, text files, on your device, which generate the information mentioned above.
A transfer of the data to a third party is not given. Ror the protection of your data we activated the plugin AnonymizeIP so that your IP address is anonimized.
Opportunities to raise dissent:
If your browser supports the so called „do-not-track“-technique, you can activate it to prevent that we include your visit in our statistics.
In addition you can deactivate the data gathered through „Piwik“ by a so called „opt-out“. In case of such a deactivation a so called „opt-out-cookie“ is placed. Warning: If you erase your cookies this „opt-out-cookie“ will also be erased. After the deletion you have to deactivate the data collection by „Piwik“ again as described in „Opt-Outs“. Here you can deactivate the data collection by „Piwik“.
We secure our website and other systems with tecnical and organisational measures against loss, destruction, access, change or distribution of your data by unauthorised persons. Certainly a complete protection against any dangers is unfortunately not possible despite regular controls.
