Generally speaking, it is possible to use our website without providing any personal data. Insofar as personal data (e.g. name, address or email addresses) are collected, this is done so on a voluntary basis wherever possible. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.
We would, nevertheless, like to point out that Internet-based data transmission (e.g. email communication) may be subject to security weaknesses. It is not possible to protect data completely from third-party access.
Data privacy statement for the use of Google +1
Our pages use Google +1 functions. These services are provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Collection and disclosure of information: Using the Google +1 button, you can publish information globally. The Google +1 button gives you and other users access to personalised content from Google and our partners. Google saves both the information that you have provided for +1 content and the information that you have viewed about the site by clicking +1. Your +1 may appear with your profile name and your photo in Google services, such as search results or in your Google profile, or elsewhere on websites and online advertisements. Google will record information about your +1 activities in order to improve Google services for you and others. In order to be able to use the +1 button, you require a public and globally visible Google profile that contains at least the name selected for the profile. This name will be used in all Google services. In certain instances, this name may also replace another name that you have used to share content via your Google account. The identity of your Google profile may be displayed to users who know your email address or who possess other identifying information in respect of your person.
Usage of information collected: Alongside the purposes stated above, we will use the information provided by you in accordance with the applicable Google data protection guidelines. Google may publish any statistics it compiles on the +1 activities of users or pass these statistics on to users and partners, such as publishers, advertisers or affiliated websites.
