Access data/ server log files
The provider (or the provider‘s webspace provider) logs data every time you access the site (so called server log files). The data includes:
Name and files of the website you view, time and date of your visit, the amount of data transferred, a message that the visit was successful, the browser type and version you use, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the site previously visited), IP address and the provider calling.
The provider uses the data exclusively for statistical analysis to ensure the operation and safety of the website and to optimize it. However, the provider reserves the right to review the logged data later in case of concrete indications that the use of the website may have been illegal.
Personal data is information that enables us to identify you, i.e., data which can be traced back to a person. This includes your name, e-mail address or telephone number. Personal data also includes information on habits, hobbies, memberships or what websites you viewed.
Personal data will be acquired, used and disclosed to third parties by the provider only if this is permitted by law or the user agrees to the logging of such data.
When you get into contact with the provider (for example, by completing and submitting the contact form or by e-mail), the user data will be stored for the purpose of processing the inquiry or for the case that questions can be asked later.
Inclusion of third-party services and content
It may be the case that an online offer contains third-party content, e.g., videos by Vimeo or maps by Google Maps. This presupposes that, in any case, the providers of such content (hereinafter „third provider") know the users’ IP addresses because without knowing the IP address they would not be able to transfer the content to the respective user. Thus the IP address is needed for visualizing the content. We take care to use only content whose respective provider uses the IP address only for the purpose of transferring the content. However, we cannot prevent third providers from storing the IP addresses for statistical or other purposes. When we become aware of that, we will contact the user and inform him of it.
