Data Privacy Statement

This website's data privacy statement is provided in English for convenience only. It is a translation of the legally binding German original.


This data privacy statement clarifies type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of data by the responsible provider of this website offering - see legal notice. The legal basis of data privacy can be found in the "Bundesdatenschutzgesetz" (BDSG) and the "Telemediengesetz" (TMG) laws of the Federal Republic of Germany as well as in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the European Union (EU).

Access Data / Server Logfiles

The provider (and his webspace provider respectively) collects data on every access to the offering (referred to as server logfiles). This access data includes: Name of the accessed website, file, date and time of the access, the amount of transferred data, a note on the successful retrieval of the website, the type of webbrowser and its version, the user's operating system, the referrer URL (the previously visited website), the IP address and the provider from where the request is sent. The provider only uses this protocol data for statistical analysis for the purpose of the operation, the security and the optimization of the offering. However, the provider reserves the right to access the protocol data subsequently if there is suspicion of illegal use based on concrete evidence.

Getting in touch

In the event of you contacting the provider via e-mail, user data is stored for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions.

Integration of services and contents provided by third parties

It may occur that third party contents such as YouTube videos, cartographical material by Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are implemented into this online offering. This always requires that the providers of these third party contents (thereafter named "third parties") perceive the users' IP addresses. Without an IP address they would not be able to provide the contents to the browser of the respective user. The provider aims at using only those contents whose respective providers use the IP addresses for the sole purpose of distribution. However, the provider has no control over those third parties logging the IP addresses nevertheless, e.g. for statistical purposes. As far as the provider is aware of such activities, the users will be informed.
