Disclaimer and Cookie Policy

Limitation of liability for internal content

The content of our website has been compiled with meticulous care and to the best of our knowledge. However, we cannot assume any liability for the up-to-dateness, completeness or accuracy of any of the pages.

Pursuant to section 7, para. 1 of the TMG (Telemediengesetz – Tele Media Act by German law), we as service providers are liable for our own content on these pages in accordance with general laws. However, pursuant to sections 8 to 10 of the TMG, we as service providers are not under obligation to monitor external information provided or stored on our website. Once we have become aware of a specific infringement of the law, we will immediately remove the content in question. Any liability concerning this matter can only be assumed from the point in time at which the infringement becomes known to us.

Limitation of liability for external links

Our website contains links to the websites of third parties („external links“). As the content of these websites is not under our control, we cannot assume any liability for such external content. In all cases, the provider of information of the linked websites is liable for the content and accuracy of the information provided. At the point in time when the links were placed, no infringements of the law were recognisable to us. As soon as an infringement of the law becomes known to us, we will immediately remove the link in question.

Data protection

A visit to our website can result in the storage on our server of information about the access (date, time, page accessed). This does not represent any analysis of personal data (e.g., name, address or e-mail address). If personal data are collected, this only occurs – to the extent possible – with the prior consent of the user of the website. Any forwarding of the data to third parties without the express consent of the user shall not take place.

We would like to expressly point out that the transmission of data via the Internet (e.g., by e-mail) can offer security vulnerabilities. It is therefore impossible to safeguard the data completely against access by third parties. We cannot assume any liability for damages arising as a result of such security vulnerabilities.

The use by third parties of all published contact details for the purpose of advertising is expressly excluded. We reserve the right to take legal steps in the case of the unsolicited sending of advertising information; e.g., by means of spam mail.

The website uses cookies in order to improve your user experience and make the website work better.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile phone when you visit that site. Cookies are widely used to make websites work more efficiently. They also transmit data to the owners of the website.

You cannot be identified merely based on cookies but, together with other data, they can be connected to you. In such cases, cookies can be considered as personal data. We do not, however, seek to identify you with cookies.

How do we use cookies?

On our website, we use the Google Analytics program supplied by Google (Google Inc.), which makes it easier to monitor the use of the website. For this purpose, Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files transferred to the user’s computer.

The data created by cookies from the use of this website (standard Internet login data, including the user’s IP address, and anonymous visiting data) is transferred to and saved by Google, for example in servers in the USA. The user’s IP address is made anonymous before being sent to Google. We keep user-level data in the Google Analytics program for 26 months, after which it is automatically deleted.

According to its Privacy Shield certification, Google states that it observes the EU’s and USA’s Privacy Shield Framework. Google may deliver data collected by Google Analytics to third parties when the law so requires or when third parties process data on behalf of Google.

According to Google Analytics’ terms of use, Google does not connect the IP addresses of data subjects to any other data stored in Google.

The use of Google Analytics’ cookies may be prevented by downloading and using Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on. Cookies are also used to save data about whether a data subject has accepted the use of cookies on our website, so that the question is not asked again at every visit.

On our website, we also use social media cookies (widgets), by which users can add content to our website for different social media platforms (Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.). In order for you to understand how these third parties collect data, what data they collect and what cookies they set, read the privacy protection practices of the social media platform in question.

How can you monitor the use of cookies?

You can block the use of cookies by changing your browser settings. The location of the settings depends on the browser. Please bear in mind, however, that if you decide to delete the cookies, at the same time you will delete your own settings. If, then again, you completely block the use of cookies, many websites will not work properly and webcasts will not work at all. Because of this, we do not recommend that you block the use of cookies.

In all browsers, cookies may be deleted one by one or all in one go. The location of the delete function depends on the browser. In most browsers, you can:

  • view the cookies on your computer and delete them one by one
  • block the saving of third party cookies
  • block the saving of cookies from certain websites
  • block all cookies
  • delete all cookies when you close your browser.

If you use several different browsers, remember to delete the cookies from all of them.
