Scope of application
The legal basis of data protection can be found in the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the German Tele-Media Act (TMG).
Access Data / Server LogFiles
The provider (or its webspace provider) collects data about each access to the site (so-called serverlog files). Those protocol data include:
Name of the retrieved web page, file, date and time of the retrieval, transferred data quantity, message about successful retrieval, browser type with version, the operating system of the user, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address, and the requesting provider.
The provider uses the protocol data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, security and optimization of the site. However, the provider reserves the right to check the log data retrospectively if, on the basis of concrete evidence, there is a legitimate suspicion of illegal use.
Handling of personal data
Personal data is information that allows a person to be identifiable, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person. This includes the name, email address or telephone number. But also data on preferences, hobbies, memberships, or which websites have been viewed by someone count to personal data.
Personal data will only be collected, used and passed on by the provider if this is legally permitted or if the users agree to the data collection.

Integration of third party services and content
It may happen that, within this site, content of third parties, such as YouTube videos, maps of Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics are included from other websites. This always assumes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third party providers”) perceive the IP address of the users. The reason for this is that without the IP address they could not send the contents to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content. We only endeavour to use such content, whose respective providers use the IP address only for the delivery of the content. However, we have no influence on whether the third party providers save the IP address for statistical purposes. As far as we know, we will inform the users.
