5. Web tracking

If IP anonymisation is activated on this website, however, your IP address will be truncated by Google within a member state of the European Union or within any other country which is party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activities and providing the website operator with other services relating to website use and internet usage.

The personal data requested in the contact form, especially name, email, date of birth ..., will only be stored for the purpose of handling your request. The application of this data is voluntary, but may be necessary for the purpose of your request. We will keep your data strictly confidential und will not provide third parties with any information given.


7. Social media plug-ins

7.1 We currently use the social media plug-ins of the following networks: LinkedIn (LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) and Xing (XING AG, Dammtorstraße 29-32, 20354 Hamburg, Germany). To do so, we use what is known as the "two-click solution". This means that no personal data is sent to the providers of these plug-ins when you first visit our website. You can recognise the plug-in providers by the initial marked on the greyed-out box. Personal data will only be transmitted when you click on one of the plug-ins: When the plug-in is activated, data are automatically sent to the plug-in provider and stored on their servers (in the case of US service providers, in the US). We have no influence over the collected data and data processing procedures, neither do we know exactly what volume of data is collected, the purposes they serve, nor how long they are stored for. Since the plug-in provider collects data mainly via cookies, we recommend deleting all cookies in your browser's security settings before clicking on the greyed-out box.

7.2 When you activate a plug-in, the plug-in provider will be informed that you have accessed the corresponding sub-page of our online site. Furthermore, the data referred to in section 4.1 of this statement are also transmitted, although, to our knowledge, only an anonymised IP is recorded in the case of Xing. This is done regardless of whether you have an account with that plug-in provider and whether you are logged in or not. If you are logged into the plug-in provider, these data are assigned directly to your account. If you click on the activated button and, for example, link to the page, the plug-in provider also stores that information in your user account and publicly informs your contacts. If you do not wish the information to be assigned to your profile with the plug-in provider, you should log out before activating the button.

7.3 You can find further information about the purpose and scope of the collected data and how they are used by the plug-in providers from their respective privacy statements, which are provided below. These also contain further information about your privacy rights and settings for protecting your privacy. For LinkedIn's privacy policy please refer to, and for Xing's data protection policy, see
