Privacy Policy


Scope

This data protection declaration clarifies users about the type, scope and purposes of the collection and use of personal data by the or. the responsible providers (according to the imprint) on this website (hereinafter "offer").

 

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 to suspect 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 and / or the users consent to the data collection.

If there is an opportunity to enter personal or business data (email addresses, names, addresses) on the website, the disclosure of this data by the user is expressly voluntary. The use and payment of all services offered is permitted - as far as technically possible and reasonable - without providing such data or by entering anonymized data or a pseudonym.

 

Contact

When contacting the provider (for example via the 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.

The use of the contact data published in the imprint or comparable information such as postal addresses, telephone numbers and email addresses by third parties to send information that has not been expressly requested is not permitted. Legal steps against the senders of so-called spam mails in violation of this prohibition are expressly reserved.

Comments and posts

If users leave comments on the blog or other posts, their IP addresses are saved. This is done for the security of the provider, if someone writes illegal content in comments and contributions (insults, prohibited political propaganda, etc.). In this case, the provider can be sued for the comment or contribution and is therefore interested in the identity of the author.

 

Integration of services and content from third parties

It may happen that third-party content, such as videos from YouTube, map material 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 endeavor 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 provider uses the IP address e.g. save for statistical purposes. As far as we know, we will inform the users about it.
