Data protection statement
The use of my website is usually possible without providing personal data. Personal data, such as names, addresses or e-mail addresses, are always provided on a voluntary basis if possible. Those data will not be passed on to third parties without your explicit permission.
However, I would like to point out that data transmissions via internet (e.g. e-mail communication) cannot be entirely secure and may have security vulnerabilities. A complete protection of personal details against unauthorised access by third parties is not possible.
The legal foundations of data protection can be found in the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG).
Access data / server log files
My web space provider collects data about every access to the website (so-called server log files). Access data includes:
Name of the retrieved web page, file, date and time of retrieval, amount of data transferred, message about successful retrieval, browser type and version, the operating system of the user, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.
I use the log data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, safety and optimization of my website. However, I reserve the right to retrospectively check the log data if, on the basis of concrete evidence, the legitimate suspicion of unlawful use exists.
Handling of personal data
Personal information is information that helps to identify a person, ie information that can be traced back to a person. This includes the name, email address or phone number. Personal data will only be collected, used and passed on by me if this is permitted by law or the users consent to the data collection.
When contacting me over my website (for example via contact form or e-mail), the details of the user are stored for the purpose of processing the request as well as in case of follow-up questions.
Integration of third party services and contents
I may include content from third parties on my websites, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third party provider”) perceive the IP address of the users. Because without the IP address, they could not send the content to the browser of each user. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content. I endeavor to use only content whose respective providers use the IP address solely for the delivery of the content. However, I do not have any influence over the possible use of IP addresses for statistical purposes by third parties. Should I gain knowledge of such occurence, I will inform users about it.
