Scope of application
This data protection declaration is intended to inform the users of this website about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the website operator in accordance with the Federal Data Protection Act and the Telemedia Act ("Bundesdatenschutzgesetz und Telemediengesetz" in Germany).
The website operator takes your data protection very seriously and treats your personal data confidentially and according to the legal regulations.
Please bear in mind that data transmission on the Internet can always be subject to security gaps. Full protection against access by third parties is not feasible.
The website operator collects data about accesses to the site and stores these as "server log files". The following data is logged in this way:
- Visited website
- Time at the time of access
- Amount of data sent in bytes
- Source/reference from which you came to the page
- Browser used
- Operating system used
- IP address used
The data collected is used only for statistical purposes and to improve the website. However, the website operator reserves the right to subsequently check the server log files if there are concrete indications of illegal use.
This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests you send to us as a site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Common browsers offer the option not to accept cookies. Note: There is no guarantee that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions if you make the appropriate settings.
Handling of personal data
The website operator collects, uses and passes on your personal data only if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of data.
Personal data includes all information which serves to determine your person and which can be traced back to you - for example your name, e-mail address and telephone number.
Dealing with contact data
If you contact the website operator through the contact options offered, your details will be stored so that they can be used to process and respond to your enquiry. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.
Dealing with comments and contributions
If you leave a contribution or comment on this website, your IP address will be stored. This serves the security of the website operator: If your text violates the law, he wants to be able to trace your identity.
You have the option of subscribing to a newsletter via your valid e-mail address. Beyond that no further data are raised. The stored data will not be passed on to third parties. You can unsubscribe at any time.
This website uses the Google Analytics service, which is provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) for the analysis of website usage by users. The service uses "cookies" - text files that are stored on your terminal device. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
This website uses IP anonymisation. The IP address of the user is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area. This shortening means that your IP address does not have to be referred to a specific person. As part of the agreement on the order data agreement, which the website operators have concluded with Google Inc., the latter uses the information collected to compile an evaluation of website use and website activity and provides services associated with Internet use.
You have the option of preventing cookies from being stored on your device by making the appropriate settings in your browser. It is not guaranteed that you can access all functions of this website without restrictions if your browser does not allow cookies.
You can also use a browser plug-in to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being sent to Google Inc. and used by Google Inc. Here you will come to the corresponding plugin.
