The handling of personal data

Personal data is information that identifies people, therefor data that traces back to a certain individual. That includes names, e-mail addresses or telephone numbers. Also data concerning preferences, hobbies and memberships as well as the websites that those people regard count as personal data.

Personal data is only collected, used and transferred by the provider, if it is legal or if the user admitts to the usage.

Contacting

When contacting the provider (e.g. via contact form or e-mail) the personal details of the user are stored for the reason of responding to a question or for further questions.

Engagement of third party services or contents

It could occur that within this online offer third party contents such as youtube videos, map data from Google-Maps, RSS-Feeds or graphics from other websites are implemented. This always requires the provider of those contents (in the following called “third party”)to make use of the IP-address of the user. Because without the IP-address they are not able to send the contents to the brower of a specific user. The IP-address is thus inevitably neccessary for the presentation of the contents. We try only to use the contents of those providers, who simply use the IP-addresses to distribute the contents. Nonetheless we do not have any influence on the third-party to prevent the storage of the IP-address for the reason of e.g. statistics. We will inform the users about this as far as we know.

Cancellation, modification, correction and updating

The user has the right on application to be informed about personal data, that has been stored, free of charge. Furthermore the user has the right for correction of wrong data, the cancelling and the deleting of his personal data, as long as there is no legal objection.
