These details will not be forwarded to third parties unless you have expressly consented for them to be so.
We would advise you that data transfer on the Internet (e.g. communication via e-mail) may have security loopholes. It is not possible to completely protect data being accessed by third parties.
Use of contact details published within the bounds of legal information by a third party, to send advertisements and information material which has not been requested is hereby expressly prohibited. The operator of this site expressly reserves the right to take legal steps in the event that unrequested advertising information is sent, via spam mails, for instance.
Data privacy statement for the use of Facebook-Plugins (the 'Like' button)
Plug-ins for the social network Facebook, (Facebook Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, California, 94025, USA) are integrated on our site. Facebook plug-ins can be recognised by the Facebook logo or the 'Like' button on our site. An overview dealing with Facebook plug-ins is available here: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
When you visit our site, the plug-in creates a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. From this, Facebook receives information via your IP address that you have visited our site. If you click the Facebook 'Like' button when you are logged-in to your Facebook account, you can link the contents of our pages to your Facebook profile. Through this, Facebook can then attribute your visit to our site to your user account.

Further information on this matter is available in the Facebook data protection policy at: http://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php
