Data protection

We would like to inform you below about our data protection declaration. You will find information here about the collection and use of personal data during use of our website. In doing this we observe the data protection laws applicable to Germany. You can view this declaration at any time on our website.


We specifically draw your attention to the fact that data transfer on the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) has security loopholes and cannot be protected totally from access by third parties.


The use of our legal page's contact details for commercial promotion is expressly not desired, save only if we had previously given our written consent or a business relationship already exists. The provider and all individuals named on this website herewith refuse permission for any commercial use or forwarding of their details.


Personal data

You are able to visit our website without entering any personal details. Insofar as any personal details are collected on our pages (e.g. name, postal address or e-mail address), this is, as far as possible, done on a voluntary basis. These details will not be passed on to any third party without your explicit consent. Insofar as a contractual relationship is to be established between you and us, or provisions of such an agreement are to be specified or changed, we will collect and use personal details from you to such extent as this is necessary for such purposes (master data). We collect, process and use personal details to such extent as this is necessary in order to enable you to utilise the website (usage data). All personal data is stored only for as long as necessary for the stated purpose (processing your enquiry or handling a contract). Storage periods stipulated by tax and commercial laws are taken into account. If instructed by the relevant bodies, we shall be permitted in individual cases to release information about this data (master data) insofar as this is necessary for the purposes of criminal prosecution, averting danger, meeting the statutory duties of the constitutional authorities or military counter-intelligence service or for enforcing intellectual property rights.


Comment functions

Within the comment function we collect personal details (e.g. name, e-mail) as part of your commenting on an article only to such extent as you have given them to us. When a comment is published, the e-mail address that you have given gets saved but not published. Your name becomes public unless you have written under a pseudonym.


Data protection declaration for the Facebook plugin ('Like')

This website uses plugins from, which are provided by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304 in the USA. Users of our website, on which the Facebook plugin ('Like' button) is installed, are herewith notified that the plugin creates a link to Facebook, by which a transfer to your browser is performed so that the plugin appears on the website.

The only way that you can circumvent this is by logging out of your Facebook account in advance.

Data protection declaration for the Google Plus social network
This website uses what is called the 'G +1' button from social network Google Plus, which is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ('Google'). The button can be recognised by the 'G +1' icon. If you are registered with Google Plus, you can show your interest in our website by using the 'G +1' button and share content from our site on Google Plus. In that event, Google saves both the information that you have given a 'G +1' for one of our pieces of content and also information about the page that you were viewing at the time. Your 'G +1's may potentially be shown along with your name (and possibly photo as well, if you have one) on Google Plus and other Google services, such as Google search or your Google profile. For more on the purpose and extent of the data collection and further processing and use of the data by Google and on your rights in relation to this and possible settings to protect your privacy, please refer to Google's data protection information:
