When registering to use our personalised services, some personal data such as name, address, contact and communication data such as telephone number and e-mail address are collected. If you are registered with us, you will be able to access content and services that we only offer to registered users. Registered users also have the option of changing or deleting the data provided during registration at any time. Of course, we will also provide you with information about the personal data we have stored about you at any time. At your request, we will also be happy to correct or delete them, provided that there are no contrary legal storage obligations. To contact us in this context, please use the contact details provided at the end of this data protection declaration.
Provision of chargeable services
In order to be able to provide services subject to a charge, we will ask you for additional data such as payment data. SSL encryption In order to guarantee the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.
If users leave comments on the blog, the time of their creation and the user name previously chosen by the website visitor are stored in addition to this information. This is for our security, as we may be held responsible for illegal content on our site, even if it is created by users.
If you register for our newsletter, the data you provide will be used exclusively for this purpose. Subscribers and customers can also receive information by e-mail about service or registration-relevant circumstances (e.g. changes to the newsletter offer or technical circumstances). For an effective registration we need a valid e-mail address. We use the "double opt-in" procedure to check whether a registration is actually carried out by the owner of an e-mail address. To this end, we log the subscription to the newsletter, the sending of a confirmation e-mail and the receipt of the reply requested. Further data will not be collected. The data are used exclusively for the newsletter dispatch and are not passed on to third parties. You can revoke your consent to the storage of your personal data and its use for newsletter dispatch at any time. You will find a corresponding link in each newsletter. You can also unsubscribe directly from this website at any time or inform us of your request via the contact details given at the end of this data protection declaration. Contact form If you contact us by e-mail or contact form, the data provided by you will be stored for the purpose of processing your enquiry and for possible follow-up questions.
Deletion or blocking of data
We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes stated here or as provided for by the various statutory storage periods. After expiry of the respective purpose or after expiry of these periods, the corresponding data is routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.

Embedded YouTube videos
On our websites social plugins of the providers listed below are used. You can recognize the plugins by the fact that they are marked with the corresponding logo. These plug-ins can be used to send information, including personal data, to the service provider and can be used by the service provider. We prevent the unconscious and unintentional collection and transmission of data to the Service Provider through a 2-click solution. To activate a desired social plugin, it must first be activated by clicking on the appropriate button. Only this activation of the plugin triggers the collection of information and its transmission to the service provider. We do not collect any personal data about the social plugins ourselves or through their use. We have no influence on which data an activated plugin collects and how it is used by the provider. It is currently assumed that a direct connection is established to the services of the provider and that at least the IP address and device-related information are recorded.

Our website uses Google Conversion Tracking.
If you have reached our website via an advertisement placed by Google, Google Adwords places a cookie on your computer. The Conversion Tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ad placed by Google. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not personally identifiable. If the user visits certain pages on our site and the cookie has not expired, we and Google may recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was directed to that page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Therefore, cookies cannot be tracked through AdWords customers' websites. The information collected from the conversion cookie is used to compile conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers will know the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were directed to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, you will not receive information that personally identifies users. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can decline to set a cookie as needed, for example, by setting your browser to disable automatic cookie-setting or by setting your browser to block cookies from the googleleadservices.com domain. Please note that you must not delete the opt-out cookies unless you want measurement data to be recorded. Once you have deleted all your cookies from your browser, you will need to set the appropriate opt-out cookie again.
Use of Google Remarketing
This website uses the remarketing function of Google Inc. This function is used to present interest-related advertising to the visitors of the website within the Google advertising network. A so-called "cookie" is stored in the visitor's browser, which makes it possible to recognise the visitor when visiting websites belonging to the Google advertising network. These pages may display advertisements to the visitor that refer to content previously viewed by the visitor on websites that use Google's remarketing feature.
Google states that it does not collect any personally identifiable information during this process. However, if you do not want Google's remarketing feature to work, you may opt-out at any time by setting your preferences at http://www.google.com/settings/ads . Alternatively, you can opt out of the use of interest-based advertising cookies through the Advertising Network Initiative by following the instructions at http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp

Please contact our data protection officer. You will find the contact details at the end of this page. So that a data block can be considered at any time, these data must be stored in a block file for control purposes. You can also request the deletion of the data, unless there is a legal obligation to archive. If such an obligation exists, we will block your data on request. You can change or revoke your consent by informing us of this.
