Your personal data (e.g. name, address, e-mail, telephone number, etc.) will only be processed by us in accordance with the provisions of German data protection law. Data are personal if they can be clearly assigned to a specific natural person. The legal basis for data protection can be found in the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG). The following regulations inform you about the type, scope, and purpose of the collection, use and processing of personal data by the provider.
We emphasise that internet-based data transmission has security gaps, a complete protection against access by third parties is therefore impossible.
We use so-called cookies on our site to recognize multiple use of our offer by the same user/internet connection owner. Cookies are small text files that your internet browser stores on your computer. They serve to optimize our Internet presence and our offers. Mostly these are so-called “session cookies “, which are deleted after the end of your visit.
In some cases, these cookies provide information to automatically recognize you. This recognition is based on the IP address stored in the cookies. The information obtained in this way is used to optimize our offers and to provide you with easier access to our site.
You may refuse the installation of the cookies through the appropriate settings on your browser, however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

USE OF GOOGLE MAPS
We use the component "Google Maps" of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter "Google", on our website.
With each individual use of the "Google Maps" component, a cookie is set by Google to process user settings and -data when displaying the page on which the "Google Maps" component is integrated. As a rule, this cookie is not deleted by closing the browser, but expires after a certain time, unless you delete it manually beforehand.
If you do not agree with this processing of your data, you have the option of deactivating the “Google Maps” service and thus preventing the transfer of data to Google. To do this, you have to deactivate the Java Script function in your browser. However, we would like to point out that in this case you will not be able to use "Google Maps" or only to a limited extent.
The use of "Google Maps" and the information obtained via "Google Maps" is according to the Google Terms of Service
as well as the additional Terms of Service for "Google Maps"
USE OF RECAPTCA
In order to protect input forms on our website, we use the "reCAPTCHA" service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter "Google". Due the use of this service, it is possible to distinguish whether the corresponding input is of human origin or is misused due to automated machine processing.
To our knowledge, the referrer URL, the IP address, the behaviour of website visitors, information about the operating system, browser and length of stay, cookies, display instructions and scripts, the user's input behaviour and mouse movements around the "reCAPTCHA" checkbox are transmitted to "Google".
Google uses the information obtained in this way, among other things, to digitize books and other printed matter and to optimize services such as Google Street View and Google Maps (e.g., house number and street name recognition).
The IP address transmitted as part of "reCAPTCHA" will not be merged with other data from Google unless you are logged into your Google account at the time of using the "reCAPTCHA" plug-in. If you want to prevent this transmission and storage of data about you and your behaviour on our website by "Google", you must log out of "Google" before visiting our website or using the reCAPTCHA plug-in.
USE OF THE XING RECOMMENDATION COMPONENTS
We use components of the XING.com network on our website. These components are a service of XING AG, Dammtorstraße 29-32, 20354 Hamburg, Germany.
With each individual visit of our website that is equipped with such a component, this component causes the browser you are using to download a corresponding representation of the component from XING.
USE OF LINKEDIN RECOMMENDATION COMPONENTS
We use components of the LinkedIn network on our website. LinkedIn is a service of LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. With each individual visit of our website that is equipped with such a component, this component causes the browser you are using to download a corresponding representation of the component from LinkedIn.
This process informs LinkedIn which specific page of our website is currently being visited. If you click the LinkedIn "Recommend Button" while you are logged into your LinkedIn account, you can link the content of our pages on your LinkedIn profile. This enables LinkedIn to assign the visit to our pages to your LinkedIn user account.
