We expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as through spam mail (especially newsletters).
Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc (“Google”). For this web analysis service, Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, i.e. text files are stored on your computer, which in turn enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of our website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. If IP anonymization is activated on our website, your IP address will only be shortened beforehand by Google within the member states of the EU or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. In a few exceptional cases, the full IP address may be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and then shortened there. Google can then evaluate your use of the website on the basis of this information, which is stored, in order to then provide a compilation of a report on the advertising website activities. Based on this report, Google can then also provide further services to the website provider related to website and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser via Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
