Once the contract has been fully executed, all personal data is initially stored in accordance with tax and commercial law retention periods and then deleted after expiration of these periods, insofar as you have not consented to the further processing and use of your personal data.

We use your e-mail address independently from execution of the contract and exclusively for our own advertising aims to send you newsletters, insofar as you have expressly consented to receive them.

Your e-mail address is then deleted.

In these cases we comply strictly with the stipulations of the German Data Protection Act. The quantity of data transferred is limited to the minimum required amount.
Our internet pages use “cookies” in several places. Cookies are small text files placed on your computer and stored by your browser. They are used to make our offers more user-friendly, more effective and more secure. Furthermore, cookies allow our systems to recognise your browser and to offer you services.

Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, text files stored on your computer which facilitate analysis of how the website is being used. The information produced by the cookie on how you are using this website is as a rule sent to a server operated by Google in the USA and stored there. If IP anonymization is activated in this website, your IP address will have been previously truncated by Google if you reside in a member state of the European Union or in another country party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a server operated by Google in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the company operating this website Google will use this information to analyse how you are using the website, to collate reports on website activities and to provide to the website operator other services related to website use and internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not brought together with other Google data. You can prevent cookies from being stored by correspondingly altering your browser software’s settings. However, in this respect we would point out that if you do so, you will not be able to use all of this website’s functions to the full extent if you need to do so. Above and beyond this, you can prevent collection of the data produced by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) being sent to Google, and also prevent Google from processing this data, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available via the following link: here
Use of Facebook plug-ins
Plug-ins provided by the social network website facebook.com are used on these internet pages; this social network is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304 (“Facebook”).
If you access our internet site using internet pages equipped with such a plug-in, a connection is created to the Facebook servers and the plug-in is shown on the webpage by sending a message to your browser. As a result of this a message is sent to the Facebook server informing it which of our internet pages you have visited. If you are logged in as a Facebook member at the time, Facebook will add this information to your personal Facebook user account. When using the plug-in functions (e.g. when clicking on the “Like” button or posting a comment), this information is also added to your Facebook account. This can only be prevented if you log out before using the plug-in.
If you do not want Facebook to immediately add the information collected to your Facebook profile, you must either log out of Facebook before visiting our website or use the add-on provided by Facebook in your browser: here. With this add-on you can prevent the Facebook plug-in from being loaded.
You can find more detailed information on how Facebook collects and uses information, on your rights in this respect and on how you can protect your private sphere in the section of the Facebook website dedicated to data protection.
