Declaration on data protection:

Data protection

Our website can normally be used without having to submit personally-identifiable data. If personally-identifiable details (e.g. name, postal or e-mail addresses) are obtained, this will only take place, insofar as it is possible, on a voluntary basis. These data will not be passed on to any third party or parties without your express consent.

We should point out that data transferred over the Internet (e.g. during communication by e-mail) can be subject to security flaws. It is not possible to offer guaranteed protection of such data against access by third parties.

The use by third parties of contact details, which have been supplied in the course of fulfilling legal obligations, in order to send unsolicited advertising and information material is hereby expressly opposed. The operator of this website expressly reserves the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited advertising being sent via “spam” e-mail or by other means.

Google will use this information to evaluate your usage of the website, to draw up reports on website activities for site operators and in order to provide further services relating to website and Internet usage. The IP address obtained from your web browser by Google Analytics will not be linked to any other data held by Google.
