Furthermore, this information will be published at Facebook and displayed to all your Facebook friends.

Facebook is allowed to use this information for promotion, market research and the design of Facebook pages tailored to suit a market need.

Data Security


For visits on our website, we use the prevalent SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technique combined with the highest encryption level your web browser supports. Usually, 256 Bit encryption is applied. If your web browser does not support 256 Bit encryption, we apply the 128 Bit v3 technique.

Furthermore, we use other suitable technical and organizational security methods to protect your data against unintended or intended manipulations, partial or complete loss, destruction or unauthorized access by third parties. Our means of security are continuously being improved following the technological development.

We point out that the data transfer in the Internet, for example email communication, may have security gaps. The complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
