Your data will only be provided to third parties if this is necessary for fulfilling the contract or when we are obliged by law in individual cases.

If you subscribe to our newsletter, we need next to your e-mail address the confirmation that you are the owner of the e-mail address and agree to receive the newsletters.

Not until you have confirmed your request, your newsletter registration becomes effective.

You can withdraw your subscription of the newsletter and your consent to the storage of your e-mail address at any time. Attention: The newsletter function what we offered since April 2005 is disabled since May 25, 2018. All received data in that period of time was deleted from server systems (mySQL databases) and non-web based programs. A new newsletter will be introduced with the release of the new website in July 2018.

Privacy policy for the use of the web services of Facebook
Our website uses social plugins (“plugins”) provided by the social network, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins are identifiable by a Facebook logo (white letter f on blue background or a thumb up icon) or the notice “Facebook Social Plugin”. For a full list of all social Plugins please see

When you visit a page of our website that contains a social plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook servers. Facebook directly transfers the plugin content to your browser which embeds the latter into the website, enabling Facebook to receive information about your having accessed the respective page of our website. Thus we have no influence on the data gathered by the plugin and inform you according to our state of knowledge:

The embedded plugins provide Facebook with the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged into Facebook, your visit can be assigned to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking “Like”, or entering a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored by it. Even if you are not logged into Facebook, there is a possibility that the plugins transmit your IP-address to Facebook.

For information on the purpose and scope of data collection and procession by Facebook, as well as your rights in this respect and settings options for protecting your privacy, please visit Facebook’s privacy policy:

If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to connect the data concerning your visit to our website with your member data already stored by Facebook, please log off Facebook before entering our website. Further, you can block Facebook social Plugins by using add-ons for your browser, like the “Facebook Blocker“.

If you are registered with Google Plus, you can use the "G +1" button to express your interest in our website and share content from our website with Google Plus. In this case, Google stores both the information that you have given a "G +1" for one of our contents and information about the page that you have viewed. Your "G +1" may be displayed with your name (or a photo, if available) on Google Plus in other Google services, such as Google Search or your Google profile.
