on this website (in the following "offer").
The legal basis for this data protection is found in the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the German Broadcast Media Act (TMG).
Access data/server log files
The provider (or its website provider) collects data on every time the offerings are accessed (known as server log files). The access data includes:
Name of the website queried, file, date and time of the query, data quantities transferred, messages on successful call-up, browser type along with version, the user's operating system, referrer URL (the page visited previously), IP address, and the inquiring provider.
The provider uses the log data only for statistical evaluation for the purpose of operation, security and optimization of the offering. The provider does however reserve the right to check the log data later if there is concrete suspicion that the access is due to plans for an illegal use.
Using personal data
Personal data are information through which a person can be identified; in other words, information that can be traced back to a person. This includes names, e-mail addresses, or telephone numbers. But personal data also includes data about preferences, hobbies, memberships, or which websites have been viewed by someone.
Personal data are only collected, used and transmitted by the provider if this is legally allowed or if the user has agreed to the data collection.
When making contact with the provider (e.g., through the contact form or by e-mail), the user's information is saved for the purpose of processing the inquiry and for the event that there are follow-up questions.
With the newsletter, we inform you about us and our offerings.
If you would like to receive the newsletter, we require a valid e-mail address and information from you that allow us to check that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided or that the owner is OK with the receipt of the newsletter. We will not collect additional data. These data are used only to send the newsletter and are not transmitted to third parties.
When you sign up for the newsletter, we will store your IP address and the date of sign-up. This storage serves only as verification in the event that a third party misuses an e-mail address and has given authorization for newsletter receipt without your knowledge and authorization.
Your permission to save the data, the e-mail address and its use to send the newsletter can be withdrawn at any time. Withdrawal can be made through a link in the newsletter itself, in your profile area or by message to the contact options above.
Connection of services and the content of third parties
It can be the case that the content of third parties, for example, videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds, or graphics from other websites, may be embedded within this online offering. This always requires that the provider of this content (referred to as "third-party providers" in the following) collect the user's IP address. This is because without the IP address, the content could not be sent to the browser of the respective user. Therefore, the IP address is required for the representation of this content. We take care to only use such content for which respective provider only uses the IP address to deliver the content. However, we have no influence over whether the third party provider saves the IP addresses for statistical purposes, for example. To the extent that we are aware of this, we will inform the user of it.
