data / server log files The provider (or his web space provider) collects data about every access to the offer (so-called server log files). The access data include:
Name of the accessed website, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, 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 check the log data retrospectively if there are reasonable grounds for suspecting illegal use.
Handling of personal data
Personal data is information that can be used to identify a person, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person. This includes the name, email address or phone number. Personal data also includes data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites were viewed by someone.
Personal data is only collected, used and passed on by the provider if this is permitted by law or the users consent to the data collection.
When contacting the provider (for example via the contact form or e-mail), the user’s information is saved for the purpose of processing the request and in the event that follow-up questions arise.
Comments and posts
If users leave comments on the blog or other posts, their IP addresses are saved. This is done for the security of the provider, if someone writes illegal content in comments and posts (insults, prohibited political propaganda, etc.). In this case, the provider can be sued for the comment or contribution and is therefore interested in the identity of the author.

We strive to only use content whose respective providers only use the IP address to deliver the content. However, we have no influence on whether the third-party providers save the IP address, for example for statistical purposes. As far as we know, we will inform the users about it.

Use of Facebook social plugins
This offer uses social plugins (“plugins”) from the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins can be recognized by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on a blue tile or a “thumbs up” sign) or are marked with the addition “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list and appearance of the Facebook social plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/ .
When a user calls up a website of this offer that contains such a plugin, his browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted from Facebook directly to your browser, which integrates it into the website. The provider therefore has no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore informs the user according to his level of knowledge :
By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has called up the corresponding page of the offer. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to their Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the Like button or leaving a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will find out and save his IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymized IP address is saved in Germany.
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as the related rights and setting options for protecting the privacy of users can be found in Facebook’s data protection information: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/ .
If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about them via this offer and link it to their member data stored on Facebook, they must log out of Facebook before visiting the website.
It is also possible to block Facebook social plugins with add-ons for your browser, for example with the “Facebook Blocker”.
