If you wish, you can also provide us with personal data about applications that are integrated into our platform (e. g. contact forms or services that require the creation of user accounts). The use of these applications may be subject to different terms and conditions from this Privacy Policy. Within the framework of additional data protection clauses, we will then explicitly point this out to you.

In each and every case, the third party making the linked website available or operating it is responsible for its content. When the link was created to these websites, they were reviewed as to whether they violated any laws. At the time the link was set, no content was recognizable that was in violation of the law. Furthermore, we cannot reasonably be expected to permanently control the content of the pages of third parties to which we have links if there is no concrete indication of a law being violated. However, should any such violations of the law become known to us, we will remove the link in question immediately.

Use of Google Analytics with IP-anonymization

This Website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics is a web analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”).
