Personal data which you transmit electronically on this website, such as name, e-mail address, address or other personal details, will only be used by us for the purpose stated in each case, stored securely and not passed on to third parties. The provider automatically collects and stores information on the web server, such as the browser used, operating system, reference page, IP address, time of access, etc. These data cannot be assigned to any specific person without checking further data sources and we do not further evaluate these data as long as there is no illegal use of our website.
Form data and comments
When website visitors leave comments or form entries, the data entered and their IP addresses are stored. This is done to be on the safe side if someone writes illegal content (insults, left- or right-wing extremist propaganda, hate postings, etc.). In this case we are interested in the identity of the author.
The comments are stored on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke your consent at any time. An informal e-mail notification to us is sufficient for this purpose. The legality of the data processing operations that have already taken place remains unaffected by the revocation.
Cookies are small files that enable this website to store specific user-related information on the visitor’s computer while our website is being visited. Cookies help us to determine the frequency of use and the number of users of our Internet pages, as well as to make our offers convenient and efficient for you. We use session cookies, which are only stored temporarily for the duration of your use of our website, and permanent cookies to record information about visitors who repeatedly access our website.
The purpose of using these cookies is to provide optimal user guidance, to recognize visitors and to present as attractive a website and interesting content as possible when used repeatedly.
The content of a permanent cookie is limited to an identification number. Name, IP address etc. are not stored. An individual profile of your usage behaviour is NOT created. It is also possible to use our offers without cookies. You can deactivate the storage of cookies in your browser, restrict it to certain websites or set your web browser (Chrome, IE, Firefox,…) so that it notifies you as soon as a cookie is sent. You can also delete cookies from your PC’s hard drive at any time. Please note, however, that in this case you must expect a restricted display of the page and limited user guidance.
