If the website provides the possibility of entering personal or business information (e-mail addresses, names, addresses), the user discloses this information expressly in a voluntary manner. This information will not be passed on to third parties without your express permission.
We point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. email communication) could have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
The use and payment of all services offered – to the extent that this is technically possible and feasible – is also possible without providing such information or by providing anonymous data or a pseudonym.
Third-party use of the contact data published in the corporate information or equivalent information such as postal addresses, phone and fax numbers and e-mail addresses, for sending of information not expressly requested is not permitted. We expressly reserve the right to take legal action against the senders of so-called spam mails in the event of infringement of this ban.

2. Facebook plug-in (Like button)
Plug-ins of the social network Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA are possibly integrated in our website. The Facebook plug-ins can be identified by the Facebook logo or the “Like” button on our website. An overview of the Facebook plug-ins is available here: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
When you visit our website, the plug-in establishes a direct link between your browser and the Facebook server. This informs Facebook that you visited our website with your IP address. If you click the Facebook “Like” button while you are logged into your Facebook account you can link the content of our website to your Facebook profile. This allows Facebook to allocate visits to our website to your user account. We point out that as the operator of the website we receive no information from Facebook about the content and use of the transmitted data. Further information on this is available in the Facebook data privacy statement at http://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php
If you do not want Facebook to allocate the visit to our website to your Facebook user account, please log out of your Facebook account.
Functions of the Twitter service are possibly integrated in our website. These functions are offered by Twitter, Inc. 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. Through the use of Twitter and the “Re-Tweet” function, the web pages visited by you are linked to your Twitter account and made known to other users. During this process, data is transferred to Twitter.
We point out that as the operator of the website we receive no information from Twitter about the content and use of the transmitted data. Further information on this is available in the Twitter data privacy statement at http://twitter.com/privacy.
