Incorporation of third-party
services and contents
It is possible that contents of third
parties (hereinafter referred to as “third-party”
providers), such as for example videos or graphics from other
websites, are incorporated within this website. This always
presupposes that the third-party providers avail of the IP address of
the users because they would be unable to send the contents to the
browser of the respective user without the IP address. Thus,
the IP address is necessary for the presentation of these contents.
We endeavor to use only those contents the providers of which merely
use the IP address to deliver the contents. However, we have no
influence if a third-party provider saves the IP address for
statistical purposes, for example. To the extent that we are aware of
such a circumstance, we inform the users about it.
We use Google Analytics, a web
analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”).
Google Analytics uses what is referred to as “cookies”.
These are text files which are saved on the user’s computer and
allow for an analysis of the use of the website by you. As a rule,
the information generated by the cookie with respect to the use of
this website by the users is transmitted to and saved by Google on a
server in the USA.

anonymisation on this website, however, Google will previously
shorten the users’ IP address within member countries of the
European Union or in other contracting states of the Treaty on the
European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP
address is transmitted to a server of Google in the USA and shortened
there. The IP anonymisation is activated on this website.
Google will use this information on our account in order to evaluate
the use of this website by the users, to compile reports on website
activities and to provide further services relating to the usage of
the website and the Internet usage to the website provider.
The IP address transmitted by your
browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be associated
with other data held by Google. Users can prevent the storage of the
cookies by setting their browser software accordingly. However, this
offer attracts the users’ attention to the fact that they might
not be able to make full use of all the functions of this website.
