This data privacy statement informs users about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the responsible provider [see imprint] on this website (hereinafter “offer”).
The legal basis of data protection can be found in the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG).
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 retrospectively check the log data if, based on specific indications, there is a legitimate suspicion of illegal use.
Handling of 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. But also data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites were viewed by someone count as personal data.
Personal data is only collected, used and passed on by the provider if this is permitted by law or if the users consent to the data collection.
When contacting the provider (for example via the contact form or email), the information provided by the user is stored for the purpose of processing the request and in the event that follow-up questions arise and is deleted immediately after communication with the user has ended.
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, are integrated into this online offer. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) are aware of the users’ IP address. Because without the IP address, you would not be able to 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 provider stores the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. As far as we know, we will inform users about it.
Statistical evaluation of user access
This offer uses Slimstat Analytics, a software for statistical analysis of user access. Slimstat Analytics 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 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 that has been stored about him. In addition, the user has the right to correct incorrect data, block and delete his or her personal data, as long as there is no statutory retention requirement.
