As a rule, it is possible to use our website without providing personal data. Insofar as personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail address) is collected on our pages, this is always done on a voluntary basis, as far as possible. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.
We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. It is not possible to completely protect data from access by third parties.
This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as the requests you send to us as the site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of your browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If the SSL encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Our pages use functions of Google+. Provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Collection and sharing of information: You can use the Google+ button to publish information worldwide.

Google stores both the information that you gave for a +1 content and information about the page that you viewed when you clicked on +1. Your +1 may be displayed as clues along with your profile name and photo in Google services, such as in search results or in your Google Profile, or in other locations on websites and ads on the web.
Google records information about your +1 activity in order to improve the Google services for you and others. In order to use the Google+ button, you must have a public Google profile that is visible worldwide and must contain at least the name you choose for your profile. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name may also replace another name that you used when sharing content through your Google Account. The identity of your Google Profile may be displayed to users who know your email address or have other identifying information about you.
