Where personal data (for example name, ad-dress or email address) is collected on our website, this is always on a voluntary basis. 

Please note that unencrypted data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating via email) may entail security risks. It is not possible to protect data completely against third-party access.

Our website uses cookies. A cookie is a text file that is sent and stored on your hard drive when you visit a website. If you, the website user, access our website’s server again, the browser on your computer sends the cookie it received back to the server.

9. Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Irland (“Google”).

Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is transmitted to a Google server in the United States and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyse your use of the website, compile reports on website activity and provide the website operator with further services in connection with use of the website and the Internet in general. Google will not link the IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics with any other data.
