Access data/server log files
The website provider (or its web hosting provider) collects data every time the website is accessed (known as server log files). The access data includes:
The name of the website accessed, file, date and time of access, volume of data transmitted, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited website), IP address and the querying provider.
The provider uses the log data for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, security and the optimisation of the website only. The provider reserves the right to check the log data after the fact if there is a justified suspicion of unlawful use based on concrete evidence.
Handling personal details
Personal details are information that can be used to identify a person, i.e. the information that can be traced back to a person. These include the name, email address or telephone number. However, personal details also include data about likes, hobbies, memberships or which pages someone has viewed.
Personal details are only collected, used and passed on by the provider where this is legally permissible and the user consents to the data collection.
Upon making contact with the provider (for example via contact form or email), the user’s information is saved for the purpose of processing the query, as well as in the event that subsequent questions arise.
We use our newsletter to inform you about us and our services.
If you wish to receive the newsletter, we require a valid email address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the email address specified or its owner consents to the receipt of the newsletter. No additional data is collected. This data is only used to send the newsletter and is not passed on to third parties.
When you sign up for the newsletter, we save your IP address and the date of signup. Saving this data purely serves as evidence in the event that a third party misuses an email address and signs the user up to receive newsletters without their knowledge.
You can revoke your consent to saving the details, email address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time. You can revoke it via a link in the newsletters themselves, in your profile area or by informing us via the above contact options.
