When you use this website we collect various types of information, some of which is provided by you as a user and some of which is necessary to use the website or arises from your use of the website. Personal data is information about the personal or factual circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person, such as your name, address, telephone number, date of birth, payment details and IP address.

The information will not be used for any other purpose.

The following data protection principles apply to the use of our website and other services offered via it (e.g. contact form):

4. If you provide feedback (for example on the website), we may use and disclose that feedback for any purpose, provided we do not include your personally identifiable information in it, i.e., publish it anonymously or under a pseudonym. The collection of data contained in such feedback and the handling of all personal data contained therein will be done in accordance with the above Privacy Policy.

5. You have the right at any time to inquire free of charge about the data collected about your person.

  • This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google")(on the basis of our legitimate interests, i.e. interest in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online offer in the sense of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. of GDPR). Google Analytics uses the cookies described above that are text files stored on your computer that allow analysis of the use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is generally transferred to a Google server in the United States and stored there.

    Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online services by users, to compile reports on the activities within this online service and to provide us with other services associated with the use of this online service and the Internet. Pseudonymous user profiles can be created from the processed data.

    We only use Google Analytics with IP anonymization enabled. This means that the IP address of the user is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

    The IP address transmitted by the user's browser is not merged with other Google data. User can prevent cookies from being saved by setting your browser software accordingly. However, be aware that in this case you may not be able to fully utilize all the functions of this website.

If you are logged by Google, your information will be directly associated with your account. If you do not want your profile to be associated with Google, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for advertising, market research and / or needs-based design of its website. Such evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide demand-oriented advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and you must contact Google to exercise this right.
