Server-Log-Files and Logging
The provider of these pages automatically collects and stores information sent by your browser in so-called server log files. This information includes e.g. browser type/browser version, operating system, referrer URL, host name of the accessing computer and/or time stamp of the server request.
These data cannot be associated with a specific person. There is no amalgamating of data with other data sources. However, we reserve the right to review these data in case of concrete evidence of illegal use.
To ensure the functioning of this tele media service (stability, reliability) the provider of these pages automatically collects and stores IP addresses that may allow identification. We do not exploit personal data out of this operation. The statistical evaluation of anonymized data records is reserved.

At any time, you do have cost-free information rights regarding your personal data stored by us, their origin, recipient and purpose of data processing, and a right to correction, blocking or deletion of such data.

Third Parties’ Privacy Guidelines
Script Libraries, Google Web Fonts
To display our contents correctly in all browsers and make them graphically appealing, we use script and font libraries such as Google Web fonts (http://www.google.com/webfonts/) on this site. Google Web Fonts are transferred to your browser’s cache to avoid multiple loading. If your browser does not support or prevents access, Google Web Fonts contents are displayed in a standard font.
The execution of script or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library’s operator. Theoretically it is possible-but currently also unclear if so and to what ends–that the operators of the corresponding libraries collect data.
Specific questions regarding the Google Web Font library are answered here: https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq#will_web_fonts_slow_down_my_page
