on this website (hereinafter referred to as “offer”).
The legal basis for 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 web space provider) collects data about every access to the offer (so-called server log files). The access data include:
Name of the accessed website, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address, and the requesting provider.
The provider uses the log data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, security, and optimization of the offer. However, the provider reserves the right to check the log data retrospectively if there are reasonable grounds for suspecting illegal use.
Dealing with personal data
Personal data is information that can be used to identify a person, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person. This includes the name, email address, or phone number. Personal data also includes data about preferences, hobbies, memberships, or which websites were viewed by someone.
Personal data is only collected, used, and passed on by the provider if this is permitted by law or the user’s consent to the data collection.
When contacting the provider (for example via contact form or email), the user’s information is stored for the purpose of processing the request and in the event that follow-up questions arise.
Integration of services and content from third parties
It may happen that third-party content, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites is integrated into this online offer. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) 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 to display this content. We strive to only use content whose respective providers only use the IP address to deliver the content. However, we have no influence on whether the third-party providers save the IP address, for example for statistical purposes. As far as we know, we will inform the users about it.
This offer uses Piwik, an open-source software for statistical evaluation of user access. Piwik uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on the user’s computer and that enable an analysis of the use of the website by the user. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this offer is stored on the provider’s server in Germany. The IP address is anonymized immediately after processing and before it is saved. Users can prevent the installation of cookies by setting their browser software accordingly; However, the provider points out to the users that in this case, they may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.
Revocation, changes, corrections, and updates
The user has the right to request information free of charge about the personal data stored about him. In addition, the user has the right to correct inaccurate data, block and delete his / her personal data, provided that there is no legal obligation to retain it.
