Note on data transfer to the USA
Here and there we integrate services ("tools") on our website from companies based in the USA or from companies based in the EU that use server infrastructure form companies based in the USA, for exaple a video player tool from YouTube or a data visualisation tool from Datawrapper. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to the USA. We would like to point out that the USA is not a safe third country in the sense of EU data protection law. US companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you as a data subject being informed or being able to take legal action against this. It can therefore not be ruled out that US authorities (e.g. intelligence services) process, evaluate and permanently store your data for surveillance purposes if they are located on servers in the USA or from companies based in the USA. This may, for example, result in you being refused entry to the USA. We have no influence on these processing activities. If you do not wish your data to be transferred to the USA, do not confirm the consent button at the bottom of the page. You may still use the website with the exception of the tools mentioned above.

Informations that were encrypted with SSL may not be read by third parties on the way.
