General information regarding the use of this website

Scope of jurisdiction
This Data Protection Declaration is to provide clarification for users as to the type, scope and purpose of the levying and use of personal data.

Access data/ server log files
The providers (or their webspace providers) levy data each time their offers are accessed (so-called server log files). This access data includes:

The name of the website visited, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, report on successful access, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, the referrer URL (the previously visited site), IP address and the requesting provider.

The provider only uses the log data for statistical evaluations, operating purposes, security and access optimisation. The provider reserves the right to check on the log data, should concrete and justifiable evidence regarding suspicion of unlawful use should subsequently occur.

Handling of personal data
Personal data is information by means of which a person can be identified; in other words particulars which can be traced back to a certain person. This includes names, email addresses or telephone numbers. Information regarding preferences, hobbies, club memberships or suitable websites is also classified as personal data.

Personal data will only be levied, used and passed on by the provider in cases when this is legally permitted, or when express consent has been already obtained from the user. 

Making contact
When the user takes up contact with the provider (for example by means of a contact form or email) the user’s details will be stored to enable the enquiry to be processed and for the eventuality of further questions arising.

Involvement of third party services and contents.  
It sometimes occurs that third party content can be included within the parameters of an online offer, for example YouTube videos, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites. This always presupposes that the provider of this content (hereinafter referred to as the "third party provider") recognises the IP address of the user. For without the IP address, the content cannot be sent to the browser of the current user. Thus the IP address is essential for the representation of this content. We take great care only to use such content whose current provider uses the IP address solely for the delivery of the content. However, we have no influence over the third party provider’s actions should, for example, the IP address be saved for statistical purposes. Should we become aware of such an eventuality occuring, we would inform the user accordingly.
