Information on data protection

Dear Visitor,

The protection of your privacy when using our web pages is very important to us. Please therefore be aware of the information below. 

Anonymous data collection
You are completely able to visit the web pages of the Wood Sculpture Path without informing us who you are. We learn only the name of your Internet service provider, the web page from which you visit us, and which of our web pages you visit. This information is evaluated for statistical purposes. As an individual user, you remain anonymous during this. 

Collection and processing of personal data
If you order informational material, newsletters, or brochures, we ask you for your name and for other personal information. You are free to decide whether to enter this data or not. We store your information on specially protected servers in Germany. Access to these is possible to only a few specially authorised people who are involved with the technical, commercial, or editorial support of the servers. 

Export and processing of the data to states outside the European Economic Area
We export no data whatsoever to states outside the European Economic Area. One exception to this is the Google Analytics service: Here, general statistical data is gathered, saved, and processed on secure servers in the USA. 

Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files which are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information which the cookie creates about your use of this website (including your IP address) is transferred to a server in the USA, and is stored there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website in order to create reports about the website activities for the website operators, and to provide further services related to the use of the website and the Internet. Google may also pass this information on to third parties as long as this is legally permitted, or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google. By setting your browser software appropriately, you can prevent the installation of cookies; we warn you however, that in this case you may not be able to fully use all functions of this website. By using this website, you declare that you agree to the processing of the data collected about you by Google, in the manner described above, and for the abovementioned purpose. 

Use and sharing of personal data
We do not pass your personal data on to third parties without your express permission. If we are obliged to do so by law, or as a result of a legal decision, we will transfer your data to the organisation authorised to receive it. 

External links
To provide you information in the best possible way, you will find links on our pages which reference pages of third parties. If such links are not obviously recognisable, we inform you that the link is external. Those involved with the Wood Sculpture Path have no influence whatsoever on the content and design of these pages from other providers. Obviously therefore, the guarantees of this data protection declaration do not apply there. 

Use of cookies
Cookies are used to adapt the contents to your interests. Most browsers are configured to accept cookies automatically. However, you can deactivate the storage of cookies or set your browser in such a way that you are informed as soon as cookies are sent. 

Further information and contacts
Those involved with the Wood Sculpture Path are at your disposal, should you require further information.
