We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps; complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
Please bear in mind that data transmission on the Internet can always be subject to security vulnerabilities. A full protection against access by third parties is not feasible.
The website operator or page provider collects data about accesses to the page and stores them as "server log files". The following data is logged in this way:
- Visited website
- Time at the time of access
- Amount of data sent in bytes
- Source/reference from which you came to the page
- Browser used
- Operating system used
- IP address used
The data collected is only used for statistical analysis and to improve the website. However, the website operator reserves the right to check the server log files retrospectively if there are concrete indications of illegal use.
Handling personal data
The website operator collects, uses and discloses your personal data only if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the data collection. Personal data is any information that can be used to identify you and that can be traced back to you - for example, your name, e-mail address and telephone number.
Handling contact data
If you contact the website operator using the contact options provided, your details will be stored so that they can be used to process and respond to your inquiry. Without your consent, this data will not be disclosed to third parties.
Dealing with comments and contributions
If you leave a post or comment on this website, your IP address will be stored. This is for the security of the website operator: if your text violates the law, he wants to be able to track your identity.
If a subscription is offered, you have the option to subscribe to the entire website as well as to follow-up comments on your post. You will receive an e-mail to confirm your e-mail address.
Apart from this, no further data will be collected. The stored data will not be passed on to third parties. You can unsubscribe at any time.
This website uses the service "Google Analytics", which is offered by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) to analyze website usage by users. The service 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. IP anonymization 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. This shortening eliminates the personal reference of your IP address. As part of the agreement on the order data agreement, which the website operators have concluded with Google Inc., the latter uses the information collected to create an evaluation of website use and website activity and provides services associated with internet use.
You have the option of preventing the cookie from being stored on your device by making the appropriate settings in your browser. It is not guaranteed that you can access all features 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.
By clicking on the above link, you will download an "opt-out cookie". Your browser must therefore generally allow the storage of cookies for this purpose. If you delete your cookies regularly, you will need to click on the link again each time you visit this website.
