Access data

The website operator or page provider collects data about accesses to the site and saves them as “server log files”. The following data is logged in this way:

  • Visited website
  • Time at time of access
  • Amount of data sent in bytes
  • Source/reference from which you reached the site
  • Used Browser
  • Operating system in use
  • Used IP address

The server log files are stored for a maximum of 7 days and then deleted. The data is stored for security reasons, e.g. to be able to clarify cases of abuse. If data must be kept for reasons of evidence, they are excluded from deletion until the incident has been finally clarified.

Cookies

This website uses cookies. These are small text files which are stored on your end device. They do not cause any damage. Your browser accesses these files. The use of cookies increases the user-friendliness and security of this website. Common browsers offer the setting option not to allow cookies. Note: It is not guaranteed 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 is defined as all information which serves to determine your person and which can be traced back to you – such as your name, e-mail address and telephone number.

The processing of personal data is based on our legitimate interest in fulfilling our contractually agreed services and optimizing our online offer.

You can also visit this website without providing any personal information. However, to improve our online offer we store (without personal reference) your access data to this website. These access data include, for example, the file you requested or the name of your Internet provider. The anonymisation of the data does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person.

Handling of contact data

If you contact the website operator through the contact options offered, your details (your name, e-mail address and other details you provide) will be stored for a period of six months so that they can be used to process and answer your enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent. In this case, the data will be collected to fulfil a pre-contractual measure.

Gravatar

Within our online offer we use the service Gravatar of Automattic Inc., 60 29th Street #343, San Francisco, CA 94110, USA. Gravatar is a service where users can register and store profile pictures and their e-mail addresses. If users leave contributions or comments on other websites using their e-mail address, their profile pictures can be displayed next to the contributions or comments. For this purpose, the e-mail address provided by the user is transmitted in encrypted form to Gravatar for the purpose of checking whether a profile is stored for it. This is the only purpose of transmitting the e-mail address and it will not be used for other purposes, but will be deleted afterwards. Gravatar is used on the basis of our legitimate interests in the sense of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO, because with the help of Gravatar we offer the authors of contributions and comments the possibility to personalise their contributions with a profile picture. By displaying the images, Gravatar can find out the IP address of the user, as this is necessary for communication between a browser and an online service. For more information about Gravatar’s collection and use of data, please see Automattic’s privacy policy: https://automattic.com/privacy/. If users do not want a user image associated with their email address to appear in Gravatar’s comments, they should use an email address that is not on file with Gravatar. We would also like to point out that it is also possible to use an anonymous e-mail address or no e-mail address at all, if users do not want their own e-mail address to be sent to Gravatar. Users can completely prevent the transmission of data by not using our comment system.

YouTube

Our site uses the provider YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, represented by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, for the integration of videos on individual pages. Normally, when you visit a page with embedded videos, your IP address is sent to YouTube and cookies are installed on your computer. However, we have embedded our YouTube videos with the advanced privacy mode (in this case, YouTube still contacts Google’s Double Click service, but according to Google’s privacy policy, personal information is not analyzed in this process). As a result, YouTube no longer stores information about visitors unless they are watching the video. When you click on the video, your IP address is sent to YouTube and YouTube learns that you have watched the video. If you are logged in to YouTube, this information is also associated with your account (you can prevent this by logging out of YouTube before viewing the video). For more information about YouTube’s then possible use of your information, please see the YouTube Privacy Policy at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/. In addition, please refer to our general discussion in this Privacy Policy for general guidance on how to use and disable cookies.

Use of social media plug-ins

This is operated by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). When you visit a page containing the “+1” button, a direct connection is established between your browser and Google’s servers.

This website also uses Twitter chat rooms. These are operated by Twitter Inc. (795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA). When you visit a page that contains such a button, a direct connection is established between your browser and the Twitter servers. The website operator therefore has no influence on the nature and extent of the data that the plugin transmits to the Twitter Inc. servers.
