Scope of application
With this data protection declaration users receive information about the nature, scope and purpose of the collection and use of their data collected and used by the responsible provider.
The legal framework for data protection is the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the German Telemedia Act (TMG).
Collecting general information
With each access to this offer, information is automatically collected by us or the web space provider. This information, also known as server log files, is general in nature and does not allow any conclusions to be drawn by which you could be identified.
Included are: name of the website, file, date, amount of data, web browser and web browser version, operating system, the domain name of your Internet provider, the so-called referrer URL (the page from which you accessed our offer) and the IP address.
Without this data, it would not be technically possible to deliver and display the contents of the website. In this respect, the collection of data is imperative. In addition, we use the anonymous information for statistical purposes. It helps us to optimise the offer and the technology. We also reserve the right to subsequently check the log files in case of suspected illegal use of our offer.
Handling of personal data
Definition: personal information is any information that uniquely identifies a person. It is therefore data that can be traced back to a person.
These personal data include the first name and surname, the telephone number and the e-mail address. Personal information also includes information on hobbies, memberships and preferences as well as websites that have been accessed.
These data are only collected, used and, if necessary, passed on by the provider, provided the legislator expressly permits this or the user agrees to the collection, processing, use and disclosure of the data.
Registration on our website
If you register on our website to receive personalised services, personal data will be collected. These include the name, address, telephone number and e-mail address as contact and communication data.
The registration allows access to services and content that are only available to registered users. If required, registered users are able to change or delete the data mentioned during the registration at any time. Of course we will inform you on request which personal data have been collected and stored. In addition, we correct or delete the data on request, provided that the matter is not contrary to statutory retention requirements. For further questions as well as your request for correction or deletion of the data, please use the contact details stated in this data protection declaration.
Provision of services liable to charges
In order to be able to provide services which are subject to charges, we request additional data. This applies, for example, to payment particulars.
To ensure that the security of your data is guaranteed during the transmission, we work with encryption methods (such as SSL) via HTTPS which reflect the current state of technology.Contact form
If you contact us via the online form or by e-mail, we will store the information you provide in order to answer your request and to ask possible follow-up questions.
Integration of services and contents of third parties
Our offer sometimes includes content, services and services of other providers. These are, for example, maps provided by Google Maps, videos from YouTube as well as graphics and images from other websites. In order for these data to be accessed and displayed in the user’s browser, the transmission of the IP address is absolutely necessary. The providers (hereinafter referred to as „third-party providers“) thus perceive the IP address of the respective user.
Although we endeavour to use only third-party providers who only need the IP address to deliver content, we have no control over whether the IP address may be stored. Amongst other things, this process is used for statistical purposes. If we are aware that the IP address is being stored, we will inform our users.

We store personal data according to the principles of data avoidance and data minimisation only as long as required or prescribed by law (legal storage period). If the purpose of the information collected no longer applies or the storage period ends, we block or delete the data.
Your rights to information, correction, blocking, deletion and opposition
You have the right, upon request, to demand information free of charge about the personal data stored by us, and/or to request a correction, blocking or deletion. Exceptions: these are the required data storage for business transactions or the data are subject to the statutory retention requirement.
For these purposes, please contact our data protection officer (contact details: at the end of the data protection declaration).
To be able to consider a data lock at any time, it is necessary to keep the data in a lock file for control purposes. If there is no statutory filing requirement, you can also request the deletion of the data. Otherwise we will block the data if you so desire.
Change of our data protection declaration
In order to ensure that our data protection declaration always complies with current legal requirements, we reserve the right to make changes at any time. This also applies in the event that the data protection declaration has to be adapted due to new or revised services, for example new services. The new data protection declaration will then take effect the next time you access our offer.
