Privacy Policy

 

Note: This Privacy Policy is only a translation of the original, legally binding German Datenschutzerklrung and is for reference, only. The text below is not legally binding.

 

Scope

This privacy statement informs users about the nature, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the responsible owner of this website.

 

The legal basis of data protection can be found in the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz) and the Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz).

 

Access data / server log files

The provider (or his internet provider) collects data on each access to the offer (so-called server log files). Access data include:

 

Name of the requested web page, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful retrieval, browser type and version, operating system of the user, Referrer URL (previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.

 

The provider uses the log data only for statistical evaluation for the purpose of operation, security and optimization of the offer. However, the provider reserves the right to check the log data later when concrete indications of unlawful use are given.

 

Handling of personal data

Personal information is information that can help identify a person, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person. This includes name, e-mail address or phone number. Moreover, data on preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites were viewed count as personal data.

 

Personal data will only be collected by the service provider, used and passed on, if permitted by law or user consent to the data collection is given.

 

Getting in touch

When contacting the service provider (e.g. by email), the information of the user for the purpose of processing the request and in the event that additional questions arise, is saved.

 

Comments and contributions

When users leave comments on the blog or other contributions, their data is stored. This is done for security of the provider, in case that someone posts illegal content in comments and contributions (insults, banned political propaganda, etc.). In this case the provider can be held liable even for the comment or post and is therefore interested in the identity of the author.

 

Integration of services and content of third parties

It may happen that within this online offer third-party content, such as graphics, is incorporated from other websites. This always assumes that the provider of such content (hereinafter referred to as 'Third Party') use the IP address of the user. Without the IP address, they could not send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is thus necessary for the presentation of that content. We strive to only use such content, of which the respective providers are using the IP address only for the delivery of content. However, we have no control if the third-party provider saves the IP address for example for statistical purposes. Insofar we take notice of such events, we notify our users.

On the one hand, they are used to ensure user-friendliness of websites and thus serve the user (e.g. storing login data). On the other hand they serve to capture statistical data on website usage to give the option to analyze the data in order to improve the offer. The user can influence and adjust the usage of cookies. Most browsers have an option to limit the storage of cookies or to completely prevent it.
