on this Website (hereinafter “Offer”).

The legal foundations of data protection can be found in the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG).

Access data / server log files

The provider (or his Webspace-Provider) collects data about every access to the offer (so-called server log files). This relates to the following data:

the website from which the file was accessed, the name of the file, date and time of access, amount of data transmitted, information on the success of the access attempt, the browser used, user’s operating system, referrer URL (previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.

The Provider uses the log data only for statistical evaluations, for the operation purpose, for security reasons and for the optimization of the offer. However, the provider reserves the right to subsequently review the log data if, on the basis of concrete evidence, the legitimate suspicion of unlawful use exists.

Processing of personal data

Personal data is information that helps to identify a person, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person. This includes the name, email address or phone number. Data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites were viewed by someone are also part of personal data.

Personal data are collected, used and passed on by the provider only if this is permitted by law or if the users consent to the data collection.

Communications

When contacting the provider (for example, by contact form or e-mail), the information of the user is stored for processing the request as well as in the event that follow-up questions arise.

Comments and posts

The IP addresses of users are saved when they leave comments on the blog or other posts. The purpose of this is the security of the provider, in case someone writes in comments and posts illegal content (insults, prohibited political propaganda, etc.). In this case, the provider himself may be prosecuted for the comment or contribution and is therefore interested in the identity of the author.

Newsletter

Through the newsletter, we inform you about us and our offers.

If you would like to receive the newsletter, we need a valid e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified e-mail address or that the owner agrees to receive the newsletter. Further data is not collected. These data are used only for sending the newsletter and will not be given to third parties.

With the registration or the newsletter, we save Your IP address and the date of the registration. The sole purpose of this is verification in case of misuse of your e-mail address by third parties followed by subscription for the newsletter without the knowledge of the person entitled.

You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time. The revocation can be made via a link in the newsletters themselves, in your profile area or through the contact options listed above.

Integration of services and contents of third party providers

It may happen that within this online offer content from third parties, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are included. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third party provider”) perceive the IP address of the users. Because without the IP address, they could not send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required for the display of this content. We endeavor to use content only from providers who use the IP address solely for the delivery of the content. However, we do not have any influence on third party providers saving the IP address for example for statistical purposes. We will inform users about it, as far as we know.

Cookies

Cookies are files with small amount of data that make it possible to store specific device-related information about users’ access devices (PCs, smartphones, etc.). They serve for the user-friendliness of web pages and thus the users (for example for auto-saving of logins). On the other hand, they serve to record the statistical data of the website usage and to be able to analyze it for the purpose of improving the offer. Users can influence the use of cookies. Most browsers have an option to restrict or completely prevent the storage of cookies. However, it is pointed out that the use and especially the comfort of use are limited without cookies.

You can manage many online advertising cookies from companies through the US-American site http://optout.aboutads.info/ or the EU page https://youronlinechoices.eu/.

Registration

The data entered during registration will be processed for the purpose of using the offer. Users may be informed by e-mail about offer- or registration-related information, such as changes in the scope of the offer or technical circumstances. The collected data can be seen from the registration form. This includes name, e-mail address, IP address and website for the subscription to the newsletter and the contact form.
