For goods to be delivered, for instance, your name and address must be relayed to the supplier of the goods.

For the provision of chargeable services we request additional information such as name, address, nationality, telephone number, e-mail and payment details. To protect the security of your data during transfer we use state-of-the-art encryption processes (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.
If users leave comments in the blog (function currently deactivated), in addition to these details the time of their creation and the user name previously selected by the website visitor are saved. This is for our security,as we may be held liable for illegal content on our website, even where this is created by users.
E-mail, contact, enquiry or booking forms
If you contact us via e-mail, contact, enquiry or booking form, the details that you provide shall be saved for the purpose of processing the enquiry/booking as well as for possible follow-up questions. We wish to point out that in spite of encryption the transfer of data on the internet (e.g. via e-mail) may display security loopholes. The seamless protection of data from third-party access is not possible.
The use by third parties of contact details published in the scope of the legal notice obligation to send advertising and information material that is not expressly requested is hereby expressly objected to. The operators of the sites reserve the express right to take legal steps in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as via spam mail or advertising catalogues.
Use of Google Maps
Inclusion of services and content of third parties
Our offer also includes content, services and performance of third parties. This includes, for example, maps provided by Google Maps, videos from YouTube and visual material from other websites. To ensure that this data is accessed and displayed in the browser of the user, the transfer of the IP address is required. In other words, the provider (hereinafter referred to as “third-party provider”) notes the IP address of the respective user.
Although we make efforts to use only third-party providers that require the IP address solely to deliver content, we have no influence over whether the IP address is possibly saved. In this case, this procedure serves statistical purposes, amongst others. Should we have knowledge that the IP address is saved, we shall instruct our users of this accordingly.
Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymization on these websites, your IP address will be shortened beforehand 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 will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there.
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address provided by Google Analytics as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. You can prevent the storage of cookies by a corresponding setting of your browser software. We point out, however, that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website in full.
In addition, you may prevent the collection by Google of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading the browser plug-in available under the following link and install: Browser Add On to disable Google Analytics.
Use of Google-Adwords
For purposes of promotion, our website also employs the Google ad tool “Google-Adwords”. As part of this, our website employs the analysis service “Conversion-Tracking” from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google“. If you access our site by way of a Google ad, a cookie is placed on your computer. Cookies are small text files that your internet browser downloads and stores to your computer. These so-called “conversion cookies” cease to be active after 30 days and are not used to identify you personally. If you visit certain pages of our website while the cookie is still active, we and Google know that you, as user, have clicked on ads placed on Google and were redirected to our site. Google uses the information obtained through “conversion cookies” to compile statistics for our website. These statistics tell us the total number of users who have clicked on our ad as well as which pages of our site were then accessed by each user. However, neither we nor other advertisers who use “Google-Adwords” receive any kind of information that can be used to personally identify users.
You can prevent the installation of “conversion cookies” by making the appropriate change to your browser settings, for example by setting your browser so that the automatic placement of cookies is deactivated or by blocking cookies from the domain googleadservices.com.
