Data Privacy

Usage of this website, its services and information contained is generally possible without the need to submit personal data. As far as personal data is submitted (like name, postal or email address) this is solely happening by intent of the site user (you). In case of data submission, the data will neither be disclosed nor shared with any third party without your explicit agreement or approval. Please be aware that the internet does not provide a fully protected transmission of information (for instance when communicating via e-mail). Data sent over the internet is therefore subject to likely become accessible by third parties. I explicitly disagree to the usage of my personal information (as provided on the imprint page) for any means of advertising, unsolicited email or sending information. I reserve the right to engage in legal prosecution of any party not acting in compliance to the forementioned disagreement, including (but not limited to) senders of spam emails.

Data privacy regading Facebook-Plugins (Like-Button)

My web pages are using plugins of the social networking service Facebook (Facebook Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, California, 94025, USA). The Facebook plugins can be recognized by either the Facebook logo, the so-called "Like button" or both. An overview of the Facebook plugins is available here: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. When visiting my site, the plugins will establish a direct connection between your webbroser and the web servers of Facebook. By doing so, Facebook receives the information that you have visited my pages using your respective IP address. When clicking the Facebook "Like button" on any of my pages while being logged-in to your Facebook account, you will be able to link the contents of my pages to your Facebook profile. By doing so, Facebook is able to track your visit of my pages to your Facebook account. Please note that I have no knowledge of the information transmitted to Facebook nor how it is processed by Facebook. Further information regarding these topics is available in the Facbook's data privacy, terms of use and policies available at http://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php. In case you don't want Facebook to be able to track the visit of my site with your Facebook account please sign off from Facebook.

Data privacy regading usage of Google +1 (Google Plus)

Tracking and forwarding of information:
Using the Google +1 buttons enables you to publish information on a global scale. By using the Google +1 buttons you and other users will receive personalized content from Google and/or its partners. Google will store both the information that you have "+1"-ed a specific content as well as information about the website where the click did originate. Your +1 activities are subject to appear on other sites of Google (like search results or your Google profile page) along with your user name and picture but also on different websites in the internet. Google tracks and stores information about your +1 activities in order to improve its services for you and others. In order to be able to use a Google +1 button, you are required to have created a globally publically visible Google account which contains at least a name. This name will be used by all Google services. In some cases, this name may replace a different name which you chose for sharing information via your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be shown users which know your email address or other personally identifiable information of you.

Usage of tracked information:
In addition to the above types of data usage, Google will use the respective information according to its terms of use and policies (which you have explicitly agreed to when creating your Google account or implicitly by usage of its services). Google may disclose/publish accumulated statistical data about the +1 activities of its users as well as forwarding these to other users and its partners, for instance publishers, advertisers or affiliated or linked websites. Please note that I have no knowledge of the information transmitted to Google nor how it is processed by Google. Further information regarding these topics is available at Google's pages concerning their data privacy, terms of use and policies available at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.
