This data privacy statement explains to users the type, scope and purpose for which personal data is collected and used by the responsible provider:
on this website.
Purpose of data processing
Access data/server log files
The website provider automatically collects and stores information in server log files that your browser transmits to us automatically. Access data in this sense refers to:
Name of the requested website
- Data and time of request
- Volume of data transmitted
- Notification of successful request
- Browser type and version and operating system used
- Referrer URL (the URL that directed you to our website, e.g. Google search)
- IP address and the requesting provider
The provider uses the log data solely for the purpose of statistical evaluations for reasons of operation, security and optimisation of the website. However, the provider reserves the right to review the log data retrospectively if there are specific reasons for suspecting unlawful use.
Handling personal data
Personal data is any information that allows a person to be identified, in other words information that can be traced back to an individual. This typically includes the name, e-mail address or phone number, but also data in relation to preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites an individual visited. Personal data is only collected, used and shared by the provider if this is legally permitted or if the user has consented to collection of the data.
Protecting personal data
We have taken technical and organisational security precautions to protect your personal data from loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorised access. We continually revise and optimise our security measures in accordance with the latest developments in technology.
If you use a service on our website, your personal data will be transmitted to us. We encrypt your personal data using SSL technology (Secure Socket Layer) to ensure it does not fall into the wrong hands. SSL technology is currently the most secure and most frequently used data transmission method on the Internet.
Handling contact requests
When users make contact with us using our contact form, their details are stored for the purpose of processing the request and in case follow-up questions arise. We shall not share this data without your consent.
Using the services and contents of third parties
It may happen that third-party contents, such as YouTube videos, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites, are incorporated in this website. The providers of such contents (hereinafter referred to as “third-party provider”) always require access to the user’s IP address for this purpose. Without the IP address, they could not send the contents to the respective user’s browser. The IP address is therefore essential for displaying these contents. We endeavour to only use contents in cases where the respective providers use the IP address solely to supply the contents. However, we have no influence over whether the third-party provider stores the IP address for statistical purposes for example. Insofar as we are aware of this, we inform the user accordingly.
Detailed instructions concerning managing own data in relation to Google products can be found here.

You can also prevent Google from collecting and processing the data generated by the cookie regarding your usage of this website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
Appropriate data usage
We observe the principle of data use for a specific purpose and collect, process and store your personal data only for the purposes for which you have communicated it to us. Your personal data will not be shared with third parties without your express consent, if this is not necessary for providing the service or for executing the contract. Transmission to state institutions and authorities entitled to receive such information also takes place only in the context of statutory information obligations or if we are obliged to provide such information arising from a court decision.
We take internal protection of data very seriously too. Our employees and the service providers we have appointed are obliged by us to maintain confidentiality and to comply with the data protection regulations.
Right of information and withdrawal
You are entitled to request information free-of-charge at any time about the data we have collected about you without giving any reason. You may at any time have data we have collected about you blocked, corrected or deleted and may also object to the anonymous or pseudonymous data collection and storage of data for the purpose of optimising our website. You are entitled to withdraw at any time any consent you have given to us regarding the collection and use of your data without giving reasons. To do so, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions about this data privacy statement or about the processing of your personal data. Please note that data protection regulations and activities relating to data protection, for example at Google, may change all the time. It is therefore advisable and necessary to keep up to date on an ongoing basis as regards changes to legal provisions and practices of companies, for example Google.
Changes to these data protection regulations
We reserve the right to make changes to this data privacy statement so that it always complies with current statutory requirements or to make changes to our services in the data privacy statement, for example when new services are launched. The new data privacy statement will then apply for your next visit.
