Data protection

By visiting this portal information about the access (date, time, accessed page) can be stored on the server. This does not constitute an analysis of personal data (such as name, address or e-mail address). If personal data is collected, this is done - if possible - only with the prior consent of the user of the website. A forwarding of data to third parties will not take place without the express consent of the user. We expressly point out that the transmission of data on the Internet (for example by e-mail) may have security vulnerabilities. A complete protection of the data from access by third parties can not be guaranteed. We can not assume any liability for the damages caused by such security gaps. The use of published contact data by third parties for the purpose of advertising is expressly opposed. We reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited promotional information, e.g. through spam emails, above.

We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended to include IP anonymisation in order to ensure anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.
