Explanation of the Duty to Inform

(Privacy Policy)

The protection of your personal data is of special concern to us. We process your data exclusively based on legal provisions (GDPR, TKG 2003). In these data protection information, we inform you about the most important aspects of data processing within the scope of our website.

Scope

This privacy policy informs users about the nature, scope, and purposes of the collection and use of personal data by the responsible provider, see IMPRINT on this website (hereinafter referred to as “Offer”).

Access Data/ Server Log Files

The provider (or its web space provider) collects data about every access to the offer (so-called server log files). Access data includes:

– Name of the accessed website, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, message about successful retrieval, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address, and the requesting provider.

The provider uses the log data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, security, and optimization of the offer. However, the provider reserves the right to subsequently check the log data if there is concrete evidence of illegal use.

Contacting Us

If you contact us via the form on the website or by email, your provided data will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the request and in case of follow-up questions. We do not disclose this data without your consent.

Comments and Contributions

When users leave comments on the blog or other contributions, their IP addresses are stored. This is done for the security of the provider in case someone writes illegal content in comments and contributions (insults, prohibited political propaganda, etc.). In this case, the provider can be held responsible for the comment or contribution and is therefore interested in the identity of the author.
