Verwendung von Google Analytics
This website uses google analytics, a website analysis service of google Inc. (following: google). Google analytics utilizes so-called “Cookies” which are text files being saved on your computer and allow analysis of the website’s use. The information about your usage of this website generated by cookies is usually transmitted to one of google’s servers in the US and saved there. Due to activation of IP anonymization by using this website, google shortens your IP address within member states of the European Union or other contracting states to the agreement on the European economic area. Just in exceptional cases the IP address is transmitted to a server in the US and shortened there. On behalf of operator of this website, google uses this information to analyze the usage of the website, compile reports about the website´s activity and to provide services related to the usage of the website and the internet. The IP address transmitted from your browser by google analytics will not be merged with other data.
The purposes of data processing lie within the analysis of the website´s usage and in the compilation of reports about the website´s activity. Based on the usage of the website and of the internet, further related services shall be provided. The processing is based on the operator’s justifiable interest.
You are able to deactivate the storing of cookies through the appropriate setting of your browser software; but please note that you might not be able to benefit from the complete functionality of this website. Furthermore, you are able to block the cookies recording the data concerning your use of the website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the following Browser-Plugin:
Browser Add On for deactivation of Google Analytics.
In addition, or as an alternative to browser-add-on, you are able to block the tracking by google analytics on our websites by clicking this Link. This triggers the installation of an opt-out-cookie on your device. Thereby, recording for this website and for this browser by google analytics will be prohibited as long as the cookie is installed.
Use of Script Libraries (Google Webfonts)
In order to represent our content correctly and graphically sophisticated via any browser we use script libraries and font libraries like google web fonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/). Google web fonts are broadcasted to the cache of your web browser to avoid repeated loading. In case the browser does not support google web fonts or if the access is blocked, the content will be shown in standard font.
By opening script libraries or font libraries a connection to the provider is triggered automatically. In theory, it is possible that providers of corresponding libraries are able to collect data; however, it is currently uncertain if they do so and for what reason.
Our website uses google conversion-tracking. When visiting our website through an ad (advertisement) placed by google, google AdWords installs a cookie to your computer. This cookie for conversion-tracking is set, if a user clicks on an ad placed by google. These cookies are not valid any longer than 30 days and they do not serve personal identification. If users visit our website while their cookie is still valid, both google and Accelerate are able to see that the user has clicked on the ad and therefore was forwarded to our website. Every google AdWords-costumer receives a different cookie. Therefore, cookies cannot be kept track of via websites of google AdWords-costumers. The information received by means of conversion-cookies conduce the creation of conversion-statistics for AdWords-costumers who have decided to use conversion-tracking. The costumers are made familiar with the total number of users who have clicked on their ad and with the total number of users who have been forwarded to a website labelled with a conversion-tracking-tag; though, they do not receive any information which may help identify users personally.
In case you do not want to participate in the tracking process, you may reject the installation of that specific cookie – by, for instance, blocking the automatic installation generally via browser settings or alternatively, by configuring your browser with the standard of blocking cookies from the domain “googleadservices.com”.
Please note, that you must not delete the opt-out-cookies as long as you do not wish to record measurement data. If you deleted all the cookies of your browser, you would need to place the particular opt-out-cookie again.

Content of Online Offers
The author takes no responsibility for the topicality, correctness and completeness of the provided information on our website. Liability claims towards the author, which refer to damages of material or imaginary nature, caused by use or disuse of the presented information or through the use of faulty and incomplete information are fundamentally excluded, provided that no proven intentional or grossly negligent fault of the author exists. All offers are non-binding. Regarding parts of the websites or the entire offer, the author expressly reserves adjusting, amending, deleting and ceasing the publication temporarily or permanently without separate announcement.
References and Links
In the case of direct or indirect reference to any and all third-party Internet websites
(“Hyperlinks”) which lie outside the responsibility of the author, liability claims would only and exclusively be accepted if the author had possessed knowledge of such and if it had been technically possible and feasible for the author to prevent the use of such illegal contents.
The author therefore explicitly declares that the corresponding link was free of illegal content at the time of publication. The author has no influence on the current and future design and content of the linked websites. As a result, the author explicitly alienates himself from any and all contents of the linked and/or referred to pages which might have changed after the link has been set. This declaration applies to all links and references used within the internet offer created by the author as well as to links and references from third parties in guest books, discussion forums, lists of links, mailing lists and all other types of data bases which allow external script access to their content. Liability claims for illegal, erroneous or incomplete contents and in particular for any damage resulting from the use or non-use of information presented in this manner lie exclusively on behalf of the provider of the website to which reference is made and not with the party merely referring to such published material by means of links.

All trademarks and brands mentioned on the website, including those protected by third parties, are without any limitation subject to the provisions under the respective labelling law and to the rights of the copyright holder.

and texts in other electronic or printed publications will not be permitted without the explicit permission of the author.
