The Provider (or its webspace provider) collects data each time the Website is accessed (so-called “server log files”). Access data includes:
The name of the website accessed, the data file, the date and time of access, the data volume transferred, the notification of successful access, the browser type and version, the user’s operating system, the referrer URL (the website previously visited), the IP address and the inquiring provider.
The Provider uses the protocol data for the purpose of statistical evaluations only relating to the operation, security and optimisation of the Website. However, the Provider reserves the right to review the protocol data retrospectively in the case of any concrete indications which give rise to a justified suspicion of unlawful use.
Personal data is information with the aid of which it is possible to identify an individual, i.e. information that can be traced back to a specific person. Such data includes the name, email address or telephone number. However, information on preferences, hobbies, memberships or websites which have been viewed by someone also count as personal data.
Personal data is only collection, used and passed on by the Provider if it is permitted by law to do so or if the user has consented to the collection of such data.
On contact being made with the Provider (for example by email), the user’s particulars are stored for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case any subsequent questions should arise.
It is possible that content of third parties, such as videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites may be incorporated into this Website. This is always conditional on the providers of such content (hereinafter referred to as “Third-Party Providers”) perceiving the user’s IP address. Without the IP address, they cannot send the content to the browser of the user concerned. The IP address is therefore necessary in order for such content to be displayed. We endeavour only to use content of providers who use the IP address solely for delivering the content concerned. However, we have no influence on whether or not a Third-Party Provider stores the IP address e.g. for statistical purposes. If we know this to be the case, however, we inform the users accordingly.
This Website uses Piwik, an open source software product, for the statistical evaluation of visitor access. Piwik uses text files, known as cookies, which are stored on your computer to enable analysis of your use of the website. The data gathered by Piwik is stored on the Provider’s server in Germany and never transmitted to other servers or passed on to third parties, but used in anonymised form for the purpose of improving our Website. The IP address is anonymised immediately after processing and before being stored. You can prevent installation of the cookies by choosing the corresponding setting in your browser software; we would, however, draw your attention to the fact that in this case you may not be able to utilise fully all the functions of this Website.
Revocation, amendments, corrections and updates
The user has the right to be informed, on request and free of charge, of the personal data stored on him or her. The user also has the right to have any incorrect data corrected and also personal data blocked or deleted provided this would not be contrary to any statutory duty to preserve such data.
