Scope of application

With this privacy policy, users receive information about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of their data by the responsible provider collected and used.

The legal framework for data protection is provided by the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG).

Collection of general information

With every access to this offer, information is automatically collected by us or the web space provider. This information, also known as server log files, is of a general nature and does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person.

Among other things, this information is collected: Name of the website, file, date, data volume, web browser and web browser version, operating system, the domain name of your Internet provider, the so-called referrer URL (the page from which you accessed our website) and the IP address.

Without this data, it would technically not be possible to deliver and display the contents of the website. In this respect, the collection of data is absolutely necessary. In addition, we use the anonymous information for statistical purposes. They help us to optimise our offer and technology. We also reserve the right to subsequently check the log files in the event of suspicion of illegal use of our services.

Provision of chargeable services

In order for us to be able to provide services subject to a charge, we request additional data. This applies, for example, to payment details.

In order to ensure the security of your data during transmission, we work with encryption procedures (such as SSL) over HTTPS, which reflect the current state of technology.

Comment Subscription

When users subscribe to follow-up comments, they will receive a confirmation email. With this e-mail we ensure that the user is actually the owner of the e-mail address. You can unsubscribe at any time. You will receive information about this together with the confirmation e-mail.

Newsletter

If you register for our newsletter, we will use the data you enter exclusively for this purpose or to inform you of the circumstances relevant to the service or registration. We do not pass this data on to third parties.

A valid (valid) e-mail address is required to receive the newsletter. We also store the IP address you use to register for the newsletter and the date on which you order the newsletter. This data serves as proof in the event of misuse, if a third party e-mail address is registered for the newsletter. In order to further ensure that an e-mail address is not misused by third parties in our distribution list, we work in accordance with the law with the so-called “double opt-in” procedure. In the context of this procedure the order of the newsletter, the dispatch of the confirmation mail and the receipt of the registration confirmation are logged.

You have the possibility at any time to revoke your consent to the storage of data, your e-mail address and their use for the newsletter dispatch. We will make this link available to you in every newsletter. You also have the option of informing us of your wish to revoke via the contact options mentioned in this document.

Contact form

If you contact us via the online form or by e-mail, we store the information you provide in order to answer your enquiry and ask possible follow-up questions.

Integration of third-party services and content

Our offer sometimes includes contents, services and performances of other providers. These include, for example, maps provided by Google Maps, videos from YouTube and graphics and images from other websites. The transmission of the IP address is absolutely necessary so that these data can be called up and displayed in the user’s browser. The providers (hereinafter referred to as “third party providers”) thus perceive the IP address of the respective user.

Even though we make every effort to only use third-party providers who only need the IP address in order to deliver content, we have no influence on whether the IP address may be stored. In this case, this process serves statistical purposes, among others. If we are aware that the IP address is being stored, we will inform our users accordingly.
