Collection and dissemination of information:
Use the Google +1 button to publish information worldwide. The Google +1 button provides you and other users with personalized content from Google and our partners. Google stores both the information that you have provided for a +1 content and information about the page you have viewed by clicking +1. Your +1 can be displayed as a clue along with your profile name and photo in Google services, such as search results or your Google profile, or elsewhere on websites and ads on the Internet.
Google records information about your +1 activity to improve Google services for you and others. To use the Google +1 button, you need a public Google profile that is visible worldwide and must contain at least the name selected for the profile. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name can also replace another name that you used to share content through your Google Account. The identity of your Google profile may be displayed to users who know your email address or have other identifying information from you.
Use of the information collected:
The Twitter service functions are integrated on our pages. These features are provided by Twitter Inc., Twitter, Inc. 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.

We use the function "Enable IP anonymization" on this website.

Only in exceptional cases the full IP address is transferred to a Google server in the USA 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 the website operator with further services associated with website and internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL encryption is enabled, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
You have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, their origin and recipient and the purpose of the data processing as well as a right to correction, blocking or deletion of these data.
