Access data/server log files
The provider (or its webspace provider) collects data regarding each access to the Offer (known as server log files). The access data include:

Name of the website and file accessed, date and time of access, volume of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the page previously visited), IP address and the requesting provider.

The provider only uses the protocol data for statistical evaluations for the purposes of operation, safety and optimization of the Offer. However, the provider reserves the right to subsequently review the log data if, based on concrete evidence, there is legitimate suspicion of illegal use.

Handling of personal data
Personal data is information that can be used to identify a person, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person. This includes their name, e-mail address and telephone number. However, personal data also includes information about their preferences, hobbies and memberships or which websites they have viewed. Personal data is only collected, used and forwarded by the provider if permitted by law or if users consent to the data collection.

When a user contacts the provider (by contact form or e-mail for example), the user’s information is stored for the purposes of processing the query and in case follow-up questions arise.


Integration of third-party services and content
This online Offer may contain content from third parties, for example videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps or graphics from other websites. This always presumes that the providers of this content (hereinafter called “Third-parties”) obtain the IP address of the user. because without the IP address, they cannot send the content to the user’s browser. The IP address is therefore required for this content to be presented. We try to only use content whereby the provider uses the IP address only to deliver the content. However, we have no control over whether the Third-party stores the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. Where we are aware of such activity, we notify the user thereof.


Revocation, changes, corrections and updates
The user has the right to request, free-of-charge, information about the personal data stored him/her. In addition, the user has the right to have inaccurate data corrected and personal data blocked or deleted, provided there is no legal obligation for such data to be retained.
