Deactivation of cookies can restrict the functionality of this website.
The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Advanhost on servers in Hong Kong. We will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider. We may also transfer this information to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data.
This website may use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses methods that allow your use of the website to be analyzed, e.g. through the use of so-called cookies, which are text files that are saved on your computer. In general, the information collected about your use of this website is transferred to and stored on one of Google’s servers in the United States. By activating the IP-anonymization feature on this website, your IP address is shortened before it is transferred between EU member states or other states that are party to the European Economic Area Agreement. Only in exceptional cases will your complete IP address be transferred to one of Google’s servers in the United States and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.
The anonymized IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be combined with other data from Google.
You can prevent the acquisition of the data generated by cookies and based on your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin provided http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
This website may use Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. This means that IP addresses are shortened for further processing, which excludes the possibility of personal references. If the data collected about you is related to a person, this is excluded immediately and the personal data is deleted immediately.
We may use Google Analytics to analyze the use of our website and to improve it regularly. The statistics obtained allow us to improve our services and make them more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is article 6, paragraph 1, page 1 lit. f GDPR.
THIRD-PARTY PLUG-INS AND TOOLS
We used third-party plug-ins and tools to build and improve our website, including but not limited to:
• Avada Builder
• Avada Core
• Bing Map
The legal basis for data processing is article 6, paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest lies in the faultless functioning of the website. The data will be deleted as soon as the purpose of its collection has been fulfilled.
By visiting the website, Google receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our website. In addition, the data mentioned under “Data collection when visiting this website” will be transmitted. The data is passed on regardless of whether you have an account with Google and are logged in there. If you are logged in with Google, your data collected by us will be directly assigned to the existing account. If you do not wish your profile to be associated with Google, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as user profiles and uses these for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation takes place in particular (also for not logged in users) for the representation of demand-oriented advertisements and in order to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right of objection to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google to exercise this right.
Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by Google can be found in the data protection declarations of these providers below. They will also provide you with further information about your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy: http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.
Social Media Plug-ins
We use the social media plug-ins such as Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube.
You can recognize the provider of the plug-in by its initial letter or logo in the colored box. We offer you the possibility to communicate directly with the provider of the plug-in via a button. Only when clicking the button and thereby activating it, the plug-in receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding website. In addition, the data mentioned under “Data collection when visiting this website” will be transmitted. In the case of Facebook, the IP address is made anonymous immediately after collection, according to information provided by the respective providers in Germany. By activating the plug-in, personal data is transferred from you to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (for US providers in the USA). Since the plug-in provider collects data mainly via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies via your browser’s security settings before clicking on the grayed-out box.
We have no influence on the data collected and data processing operations, nor are we aware of the full extent of data collection, the purposes of processing, the storage periods. We also have no information on the deletion of the data collected by the plug-in provider.
The plug-in provider stores your data as user profiles and uses these for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation takes place in particular (also for not logged in users) for the representation of demand-oriented advertisement and in order to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right of objection to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise this right. The plug-ins enable you to interact with social networks and other users so that we can improve our services and make them more interesting for you as a user.
The legal basis for the use of the plug-ins is article 6, paragraph1, page 1 lit. f GDPR.
The data is passed on regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in with the plug-in provider, your data collected by us will be directly assigned to your existing account with the plug-in provider. If you click the activated button and, for example, link the page, the plug-in provider also stores this information in your user account and shares it publicly with your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, especially before activating the button, as this allows you to avoid being assigned to your profile by the plug-in provider.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.
Opposition to proportional emails
We hereby expressly prohibit the use of contact data published in the context of website legal notice requirements with regard to sending promotional and informational materials not expressly requested. The website operator reserves the right to take specific legal action if unsolicited advertising material, such as email spam, is received.
