This Privacy Statement explains to users the nature, extent and purpose of the collection and processing of personal data on this website by the responsible provider TiPTiG europe GmbH · Zum Erlenbruch 7-9 · 15366 Neuenhagen/Germany. The legal basis for data protection can be found in the Federal German Data Protection Act [Bundesdatenschutzgesetz/BDSG] and the German Telemedia Act [Telemediengesetz/TMG].
Generally, it is possible to use our website without having to enter any personal data. Should it be necessary to enter personal data (e. g. name, address or e-mail addresses) this is always requested as far as possible on a voluntary basis. Without your explicit consent, this data will not be transmitted to third parties. We would like to point out that data transmission via the Internet (e. g. when communicating by e-mail) may pose security risks. It is not possible to protect such data completely from being accessed by third parties. Use of contact data provided under the compulsory legal notice by third parties for unsolicited sending of advertising and information material is explicitly prohibited.
Contacting the Provider+
When a user contacts the provider (e. g. by means of the contact form or by e-mail) the user’s data is saved to enable the provider to process the inquiry and to respond to follow-up questions.
Inclusion of Third-party Services and Content+
It can happen that content from third parties, such as YouTube videos, maps from Google-Maps, RSS feeds or images from other websites, are included within this online site. This always assumes that the providers of this content (hereinafter known as “Third-party Providers”) take note of users’ IP addresses. Without the IP address, they cannot send the contents to each user’s browser. The IP address is, therefore, required to depict such content. We endeavour to use only such content from those third-party providers who use the IP address only for the purpose of delivering this content. However, we have no influence on third-party providers who save the IP address, e. g. for statistical purposes. Should we become aware of this, we will inform our users accordingly.
Social Plugins to Social Networks+
On our Internet site, we use so-called social plugins for the following social networks: Facebook, Twitter, Xing, YouTube and LinkedIn. When you call up a website on our Internet site that includes such a plugin, your browser will establish a direct connection to the social network servers. The plugin contents will be transmitted from the social networks directly to your browser, which will include these contents in the website. The inclusion of the plugins gives social networks the information that you have called up the corresponding page on our Internet site. If you are logged into a social network, it can assign the visit to your network account. When you interact with these plugins, e. g. by clicking on the Like button or adding a comment, the corresponding information will be transmitted from your browser directly to the social network and saved there.

The content of our website has been compiled with the greatest care. Nevertheless, we cannot accept any liability should this content be incorrect, incomplete or out-of-date. As a service provider, we are responsible under general law for our own content on this website in accordance with Section 7 (1) of the German Telemedia Act [TMG]. Pursuant to Sections 8 to 10 of the TMG, however, we are not obliged to monitor transmitted or stored information from external sources, nor are we liable to search for circumstances that may suggest illicit activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information remain unaffected under general law.

Liability for Links+
Our website contains links to external third-party websites. We have no influence on their content. Therefore, we cannot accept any liability for such third-party content.

Illegal content was not apparent at the time this was linked to our website. However, permanent monitoring of the content of the linked sites is infeasible without solid evidence of a legal infringement. As soon as we become aware of any legal violations we will remove such links immediately.
