Access data/server log files
The provider (or the provider's web space provider) collects data relating to every visit to the website (in the form of server log files). Access data includes:

The name of the requested web page, file, date and time of the request, volume of data transferred, notification of successful request, browser type and version, the user's operating system, the referrer URL (the previous page visited), the IP address and the requesting provider.

The provider uses the log data solely for statistical evaluations for the purposes of running and optimising the website, as well as for ensuring the security of the website. However, the provider reserves the right to examine the log data retrospectively if there is legitimate suspicion of illegal use, based on specific evidence.

Handling of personal data
Personal data is information that can be used to identify a person, i.e. details that can be traced back to a person. This can include a person's name, email address or telephone number but can also include data relating to preferences, hobbies and memberships, as well as the websites a person has visited.

Personal data is collected, used and passed on by the provider only if this is legally permitted or if users consent to the collection of data.

When contact is made with the provider (for example via the contact form or via email), the user's details are saved for the purpose of processing the request or query and in case of any follow-up questions.

Integration of services and content from third parties
It is possible that third-party content such as videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites may be integrated into this website. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers") can see the users' IP addresses. The reason for this is that without the IP address, they could not send the content to the user's browser. Therefore, the IP address is required in order for this content to be displayed. We strive to only use such content for which the respective providers use the IP addresses solely for the purposes of delivering the content. However, we have no influence on whether the third-party providers save the IP address for statistical purposes, for example. Where we are aware that this is the case, we will inform users accordingly.
