With this privacy statement we would like to inform you about our security measures.

Collection of data
You can use our online presentation without disclosing your personal data. For technical reasons, data may be stored for security purposes when you use our website. These data may include the name of your internet service provider, the website that you used to link to our site, the websites that you visit from our site and your IP address. The data could possibly lead to your identification, but we do not use such identification to analyze personal data. We do use the data from time to time for statistical purposes, but maintain the anonymity of each individual user. In cases where personal data are passed on to external service-providers, we rely on technical and organizational means to assure that applicable data security regulations are followed.

Collection and processing of personal data
We collect personal data only when you provide it to us, for example through registration, completion of forms or emails, as part of an order for products or services, inquiries or requests about materials being provided.

The database and its contents remain with our company and the provider acting on our behalf. Your personal data will not be passed on by us or by our agents for use by third parties in any form whatsoever, unless we have obtained your consent or are legally required to do so.

We retain control of and responsibility for the use of any personal data you disclose to us. It is possible that these data may be stored or processed partly or fully in other countries (e.g. the United States). These countries could have different data protection laws to the country you live in. Should this be the case, we will ensure that the company responsible for the data processing has established suitable measures so that your data are protected according to the standard of your country of residence.

Purposes of use
The personal data we collect from you will only be used for the purpose of supplying you with the requested products or services or for other purposes for which you have given your consent, except where otherwise provided by law.

Use of cookies
Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in the browser cache of visitors to the site. These cookies make it possible to recognize the internet browser, in order to optimize the website and simplify its use. The data are not used to personally identify visitors to the website.

Social Media and YouTube

We integrate plug-ins from the Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Xing and LinkedIn networks, as well as YouTube videos. The software and server configuration used mean that data are only transmitted to the respective network if you click on the relevant plug-in or video, for example by clicking the “share in Facebook” button.

Activating the plug-in automatically sends data to the relevant network provider. We have no influence over the data collected and any data processing procedures. We are not responsible for this data processing and are therefore not the responsible body.

When you activate the plug-in, the provider firstly carries out the action you have selected, for example displaying on Facebook that you have shared our website. The provider also receives other data that it stores on its own servers (in the United States in the case of American providers). The provider receives the information that you have visited specific pages on our website. In respect of your visit to the site, it receives your IP address, date and time of the visit, the website the request came from, the language and version of your browser, your operating system and its interface. Facebook and Xing have stated that they only collect an anonymous IP address in Germany. Data are transferred irrespective of whether you actually have an account with the provider or are logged in. If you are logged in to the provider, your data are immediately matched to your account. It is also possible that the provider uses cookies on your computer to track your browsing.

The privacy statements of Facebook, Twitter, Google, LinkedIn and Xing contain further information about the purpose and scope of the data collection and how the networks process and use the data. Addresses of each of the providers, with the URL for their privacy statements:
