The website operator takes your data protection very seriously and treats your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory regulations. As new technologies and the constant further development of this website may result in changes to this data protection declaration, we recommend that you read through the data protection declaration again at regular intervals.
Definitions of the terms used (e.g. "personal data" or "processing") can be found in Art. 4 DSGVO.
We, the website operator or page provider, collect data on accesses to the website on the basis of our legitimate interest (see Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO) and store these as "server log files" on the website server. The following data is logged in this way:
Time at the time of access
Amount of data sent in bytes
Source/reference from which you came to the site
Operating system used
IP address used
The server log files are stored for a maximum of 7 days and then deleted. The data is stored for security reasons, e.g. to be able to clarify cases of misuse. If data must be retained for evidentiary reasons, it is exempt from deletion until the incident has been finally clarified.

Popular browsers offer the setting option to not allow cookies. Note: It is not guaranteed that you will be able to access all the functions of this website without restrictions if you make the appropriate settings.
Collection and processing of personal data
The website operator only collects, uses and discloses your personal data if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of such data.
Personal data is any information that can be used to identify you personally and that can be traced back to you - for example, your name, e-mail address and telephone number.
You can also visit this website without providing any personal information. However, in order to improve our online services, we store (without personal reference) your access data to this website. This access data includes, for example, the file you requested or the name of your internet provider. By making the data anonymous, it is not possible to draw conclusions about your person.
Handling of contact data
If you contact us as the website operator using the contact options offered, your details will be stored so that we can use them to process and respond to your enquiry. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.
Dealing with comments and contributions
If you leave a contribution or comment on this website, your IP address will be stored. This is done on the basis of our legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO and serves the security of us as website operator: because if your comment violates applicable law, we can be prosecuted for it, which is why we have an interest in the identity of the comment or post author.
This website uses the "Google Analytics" service on the basis of our legitimate interests in optimising and analysing our online offering within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO the service "Google Analytics", which is provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). The service (Google Analytics) uses "cookies" - text files that are stored on your terminal device. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
Google LLC complies with European data protection law and is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active
IP anonymisation is used on this website. The IP address of the user is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area and in the other contracting states of the agreement. Only in individual cases is the IP address initially transmitted unabbreviated to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. This shortening eliminates the personal reference of your IP address. The user's IP address transmitted by the browser is not combined with other data stored by Google.
Under the terms of the data protection agreement that we, as website operators, have concluded with Google Inc., the latter uses the information collected to evaluate website use and website activity and provides services related to internet use.
The data collected by Google on our behalf is used to evaluate the use of our online offer by individual users, e.g. to create reports on website activity in order to improve our online offer.
You have the option of preventing cookies from being stored on your device by making the appropriate settings in your browser. It is not guaranteed that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions if your browser does not allow cookies.
Furthermore, you can use a browser plug-in to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being sent to and used by Google Inc. The following link will take you to the corresponding plugin: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
