The use of our website is usually possible without providing personal data. As far as personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail addresses) is collected on our website, this is always done on a voluntary basis, as far as possible. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.
We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) may have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
The use by third parties of contact data published within the imprint obligation for the purpose of sending advertising and information material not expressly requested is hereby expressly prohibited. The operators of the site expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event that unsolicited advertising information is sent, for example by spam mail.
Area of Application
The legal basis for data protection is the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the German Telemedia Act (TMG).
Access Data / Server Logfiles
The provider (respectively his webspace provider) collects data about every access to the offer (so-called server log files). To the access data belong:
Name of the accessed website, file, date and time of access, transferred data volume, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited site), IP address and the requesting provider.
The provider uses the protocol 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 protocol data retrospectively if there is a justified suspicion of illegal use based on concrete evidence.
Handling of personal data
Personal data is information with the help of which a person can be determined, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person. This includes the name, email address or telephone number. But also data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites were viewed by someone else are considered personal data.
Personal data is only collected, used and passed on by the provider if this is permitted by law or if the users agree to the collection of data.
When contacting the provider (e.g. via contact form or e-mail), the user’s details are stored for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in the event that follow-up questions arise.
Comments and Posts
When users leave comments on the blog or other posts, their IP addresses are stored. This is done for the security of the provider in case someone writes illegal content in comments and posts (insults, prohibited political propaganda, etc.). In this case the provider can be prosecuted for the comment or contribution and is therefore interested in the identity of the author.
The follow-up comments can be subscribed by users. Users will receive a confirmation email to verify that they are the owner of the email address entered. Users can unsubscribe from ongoing comment subscriptions at any time. The confirmation email will contain instructions.
With the newsletter we inform you about us and our offers.
If you would like to receive the newsletter, we need a valid email address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the email address provided or that the owner agrees to receive the newsletter. Further data will not be collected. These data will only be used for sending the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.
When you register for the newsletter, we save your IP address and the date of registration. This storage serves only as proof in the event that a third party misuses an email address and registers to receive the newsletter without the knowledge of the owner.
You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the email address and its use for sending the newsletter at any time. The revocation can be done via a link in the newsletter itself or by sending a message to the contact details above.
Integration of third party services and content
It can happen that within this online offer third party content, such as videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are integrated. This always presupposes that the providers of these contents (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) are aware of the IP address of the users. Without the IP address, they would not be able to send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore necessary for the display of this content. We make every effort to use only such content whose respective providers use the IP address only to deliver the content. However, we have no influence on this if the third-party providers store the IP address for statistical purposes, for example. As far as we are aware of this, we inform the users about it.
The data entered during registration is used for the purpose of using the offer. Users can be informed by e-mail about information relevant to the offer or registration, such as changes in the scope of the offer or technical circumstances. The collected data can be seen from the input mask in the context of the registration. This includes your user name and email address.
Revocation, changes, corrections and updates
The user has the right to request information free of charge about the personal data stored about him/her. In addition, the user has the right to have incorrect data corrected, to block and delete his personal data, as long as there is no legal obligation to keep records.
