The protection of your personal data is of particular concern to us. We therefore process your data exclusively on the basis of the legal provisions (DSGVO, TKG 2003). In this data protection information, we inform you about the most important aspects of data processing within the scope of our website.
We comply with the regulations (according to DSGVO, TKG 2003). Personal data is treated as strictly confidential and is neither sold nor passed on to third parties. We strive to protect the databases as well as possible against unauthorized access, loss, misuse or falsification.
We also point out that data transmission over the Internet (eg communication by e-mail) may have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
We or our web space provider automatically collect and store information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
Name of the retrieved web page File date and time of the 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. The provider uses the log data only for statistical analysis for the purpose of operation, security and optimization of the offer. However, the provider reserves the right to check the log data retrospectively if there is a justified suspicion of unlawful use based on concrete indications.
HANDLING PERSONAL DATA Personal data is information that can be used to identify a person, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person. This includes the name, email address or telephone number. But also data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites were viewed by someone count as personal data.
Personal data is only collected, used and passed on by us if this is permitted by law or the users consent to the data collection.
If corresponding data is collected, this data can be used accordingly with analysis and tracking providers.
CONTACT When contacting us (for example, via contact form or e-mail), the user's information is stored for the purpose of processing the request and in the event that follow-up questions arise.
COMMENTS AND CONTRIBUTIONS When users leave comments on the blog or other contributions, their IP addresses are stored. This is done for the security of the provider in case someone writes illegal content in comments and posts (insults, forbidden political propaganda, etc.). In this case, the provider itself can be prosecuted for the comment or post and is therefore interested in the identity of the author.

INTEGRATION OF THIRD-PARTY SERVICES AND CONTENT It may happen that third-party content, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are integrated within this online offer. This always requires that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers") are aware of the IP address of the user. This is because without the IP address they would not be able to send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is thus necessary for the display of this content. We endeavor to use only such content whose respective providers use the IP address only for the delivery of the content. However, we have no influence if the third-party providers store the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. Insofar as this is known to us, we inform the users about it.
