The legal fundaments on data protection can be found in the German Civil Data Protection Act (BSDG – Bundesdatenschutzgesetz) and the Telemedia Act (TMG Telemediengesetz).

Access data/server logfiles

The provider (or its webspace provider) collects data with each access made to the offer (so-called server logfiles). The access data includes:

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

The provider uses the log data only for statistical evaluations for the purposes of the operation, security and optimization of the offer. The provider reserves the right, however, to retroactively review the log data if there is a justified suspicion of illegal use based on real indicators.


When contacting the provider (for instance via the contact form or email), the user’s information will be stored for the purpose of processing the request and in case there are follow-up questions.

Integration of services and third-party content

Third-party content, such as YouTube videos, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites may be integrated into this offer. This always requires that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third-party provider”) see the IP address of the user Without the IP address, they would otherwise be unable to send content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is thus required to present this content. We strive to only use content provided by providers who only use the IP address to deliver the content. However, we do not have any control over third-party providers who save the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. If we are aware of this, we will inform the user of this.


Cancellation, modifications, corrections and updates

The user has the right to receive information, on request and free of charge, about the stored personal data In addition, the user has the right to correct inaccurate data and lock and delete his/her personal data if the retention of data is not prohibited by statutory obligations.
