Data protection

The operators of this website take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with data protection legislation and by the provisions set out in this privacy policy.

In general, the use of our website is possible without having to provide personal information. However, if we collect personal data on our site (such as name, address or email addresses), this is, as far as is possible, on a voluntary basis and will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

We advise that the transmission of data over the internet (such as when communicating via email) can have security gaps, and therefore, complete protection of data against unauthorised access by third parties is not possible.

Privacy policy for using Google +1
Our pages use features of Google +1 (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA).

Collection and distribution of information: With the Google +1 button you can publish information globally. With the Google +1 button you and other users can receive personalised content from Google and its partners. Google will store both the information about the content you have given a +1 rating, as well as information about the page you viewed when you click +1. Your +1 selections can be considered as notes and shown along with your profile name and photo in Google services, such as in search results or in your Google profile, or elsewhere on websites and ads on the internet. Google records information about your +1 activities to improve Google's services for you and others. To use the Google +1 button you need a globally visible public Google profile that must contain at least the chosen name for the profile. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name can also substitute any other name that you used when sharing content via your Google account. The identity of your Google profile is visible to users who know your email address or who have other identifying information about you.

Use of the collected information: in addition to the purposes mentioned above, the information you provide will be used in accordance with Google's privacy policy. Google may also release summary statistics on the +1 activities of users or share them with users and partners, such as publishers, advertisers or affiliated websites.
