This data protection declaration informs users about the type, scope and purposes of the collection and use of personal data by the responsible provider.
The legal basis for data protection can be found in the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG).
Access data / server log files
The provider (or his web space provider) collects data about every access to the offer (so-called server log files). The access data include:
Name of the accessed website, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.
The provider uses the log 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 log data retrospectively if there are reasonable grounds for suspecting illegal use.
Dealing with 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 the name, email address or phone number. Personal data also includes data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites were viewed by someone.
Personal data is only collected, used and passed on by the provider if this is permitted by law or the users consent to the data collection.
When contacting the provider (for example via contact form or email), the user’s information is stored for the purpose of processing the request and in the event that follow-up questions arise.
Integration of services and content from third parties
It may happen that third-party content, such as videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites, is integrated into this online offer. This always presupposes that the provider of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third party provider”) perceives the IP address of the user. Because without the IP address, they could not send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required to display this content. We strive to only use content whose respective providers only use the IP address to deliver the content. However, we have no influence on whether the third-party provider uses the IP address e.g. save for statistical purposes. As far as we know, we will inform the users about it.

Revocation, changes, corrections and updates
The user has the right to request information free of charge about the personal data stored about him. In addition, the user has the right to correct inaccurate data, block and delete his personal data, provided that there is no legal obligation to retain it.
