Access Data / Server Log Files

The provider (or their webspace provider) collects data on every access to the offer (so-called server log files). This access data includes:

Name of the retrieved web page, file, date and time of the retrieval, quantity of data transferred, logs regarding succesful retrieval status, browser type and version, the operating system of the user, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.

The provider only uses the log data for statistical analysis and for the purpose of operation, security and optimisation of their offer. The author and provider reserves the right, however, to check at a later point in time if concrete evidence in the log data has created justified suspicion that unlawful use has taken place.

Handling of personal data

Personal data is information of any kind which allows a person to be identified. This definition includes all details which can be traced back to a person. This includes names, email addresses, or phone numbers. It also encompasses personal data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or which web pages were viewed by someone. Personal data is only collected, used and passed on by the provider if permitted by law, or if the user gives their consent.

Contact

Contact with the provider (for example via the contact form or email) stores the information of the user for the purpose of processing the request, as well as in the event that follow-up questions arise.

Comments and contributions

If users leave comments or other contributions on the blog, their IP addresses are stored. This is done for the safety of the provider if someone submits illegal content in their comments and contributions (insults, prohibited political propaganda, etc.). In this case, the provider themselves can be prosecuted for the illegal content and therefore has an interest in the identity of the author.

Newsletter

With our newsletter, we will inform you about us and our range of products.

If you want to receive the newsletter, we need a valid email address and information that allow us to check both that you are the owner of the email address provided and agree as its holder to receive our newsletter. Additional data is not collected. This data is used only for sending the newsletter and is not passed on to third parties.

By registering for the newsletter, we store your IP address and the date of application. This data is stored as proof in the event of a third party using an email address without consent of the rightful owner to sign up for the newsletter.

You can revoke your consent to the storage of your data or your e-mail address as well as their use for the delivery of the newsletter at any time. The revocation can be made via a link in the newsletter itself, in your profile area or by serving notice to the above contact information.

Integration of Services and Content of Third Parties

It may happen that within the online offer content from third parties, for example videos from YouTube, maps from Google maps, RSS feeds, or images from other web sites are displayed. This always assumes that the provider of such content (hereinafter referred to as «third-party provider») may log the IP address of the user. Without the correct IP address, they could not send content to the user’s browser. The IP address is required for the presentation of this content. We try to only use such content where the respective provider uses the IP address exclusively for the delivery of content. However, we have no control over third party providers saving IP addresses , e.g. for statistical purposes. In as far as this is known to us, we will inform our users.
