Google Analytics data anlaysis

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, i.e. text files that are stored on your computer to analyse your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) will be passed on to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to produce reports on website activities for their operators and to provide other services related to the use of the website and of the Internet. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. On no account will Google link your IP address to other data retrieved by Google. Although you can adjust your browser software to prevent cookie installation, we would point out that if you do so, you might not be able to make full use of all the functions on this website. By using this website, you agree that the data about you collected by Google may be processed as described above and for the purpose described above.


On our web pages, email contact can be made using a form, which forwards the information you submitted to us in encrypted form by email. Data provided by you is stored and solely used for the purpose of processing your enquiry. All data is deleted immediately once your request has been processed.


To get our newsletter, we require your e-mail address as a minimum, which we can send the newsletter to. Any other information you provide is voluntary and will be used to address you personally and to resolve any queries regarding the e-mail address.

As a general rule, we employ the double opt-in method when sending out newsletters. In other words, after you have registered for the service and informed us of your e-mail address, you will receive an e-mail in return from us, containing a link that you must use to confirm your registration. This procedure is used to ensure that only you yourself can register with the newsletter service under the specified e-mail address. Your confirmation must be carried out as soon as the e-mail is received, otherwise the registration and e-mail address will be deleted from our database. Until confirmation is received from you, our newsletter service will not accept any more registrations from this e-mail address.

You may cancel your subscription to a newsletter at any time. You can send an e-mail or cancel using a link at the end of the newsletter.

Right to information

Should you be unsure about the extent and use of your saved data, you have the right at any stage to ask for information about your saved data, its origin and receiver as well as the purpose of storage. You also have the right at any stage to request that your personal data is deleted, frozen or amended and to prohibit the future use of the data, unless help and hope is prohibited to do so by applicable law. You can revoke permission to use your data at any time.


So that your personal data does not fall into the wrong hands during transmission to us, we encrypt it with the SSL procedure (secure socket layer). This is a reliable and very safe online data transmission process. Your data is encrypted prior to transmission in such a way that it can no longer be read or reconstructed. The SSL procedure ensures that your data is solely sent to the server receiving the request.
