The legal basis for data protection can be found in the Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz - BDSG) and the German Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz - TMG).
Access data / Server log files
The provider (or their web space provider) collects data about each access on the website (known as server log files). The access data includes:
Name of the accessed website, file, date and time of access, volume of data transmitted, report about successful access, browser type together with version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previous site visited), IP address and the requesting provider.
The provider only uses the protocol data for statistical analysis for the purpose of the operation, security and optimisation of the website. However the provider reserves the right to subsequently examine the protocol data if, due to specific grounds, there is the justified suspicion of illegal use.
Handling of personal data
Personal data is information which helps make a person identifiable, so it is information which can be used to trace back to a person. This includes the name, email address or telephone number. However, data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites have been viewed by someone also count as personal data. Personal data is only collected, used or passed on by the provider if this is permitted by law or the user agrees to the collection of data.
When making contact with the provider (for example via the contact form or email) the user’s information is stored for the purpose of processing the request and in case follow-up questions arise.
Through the newsletter we provide you with information about ourselves and our range of services.
If you would like to receive the newsletter, we require you to provide us with a valid email address and information which allows us to check that you are the owner of the email address provided or that the owner agrees to receive the newsletter. Other data is not collected. This data is only used for the sending of the newsletter and is not passed on to third parties.
When you register for the newsletter we store your IP address and the date of registration. This storage is only used for proof in the case where a third party misuses an email address and registers it to receive the newsletter without the knowledge of the authorised owner.
You can revoke your consent to storage of the data, email address and their use for the sending of the newsletter at any time. Revocation can be performed via a link in the newsletter itself, in your profile area or by sending a message via the contact options mentioned above.
Integration of services and content of third parties
It can be the case that within this online website there is integrated content from third parties, such as videos from YouTube, map data from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites. This always assumes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as "third party providers") are aware of the IP addresses of the users. This is because without the IP address, they could not send the content to the browser of the respective user. Therefore the IP address is required in order to display this content. We try to only use content where the respective third party provider only uses the IP address for the transmission of content. However we are not able to exert any influence if the third party provider stores the IP address, for example, for statistical purposes. Provided we are aware of this, we will inform the user.
