Your rights

You have the rights to information, correction, deletion, restriction, data transferability, revocation and objection. If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or your data protection claims have otherwise been violated in any way, you can complain to the supervisory authority.

Server logs

All requests to our website are logged by the hosting provider (server logs); this is necessary to ensure operation of the site. We store for 3 months:

  • Your public IP address
  • Date and time
  • The URLs visited this page
  • Browser type and version as well as operating system type and version (“User Agent”)
  • Referrer (the website from which this page was accessed)

This data is not passed on to external companies and is only evaluated internally; if necessary, it is passed on to the responsible authorities for criminal prosecution.

Cookies

Our website uses so-called cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your device using the browser.

We use cookies to make our website user-friendly and are necessary to enable some functions in the first place. Some cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. They enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit us.

If you do not wish this, you can set your browser so that it informs you about the setting of cookies and you only allow this in individual cases.

When cookies are deactivated, the functionality of our website may be limited.

Web analysis

Our website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). Cookies are used for this purpose, which enable an analysis of the use of the website by our users. The information generated in this way is transferred to the provider’s server and stored there.

You can prevent this by setting your browser so that no cookies are stored or by refusing your consent in the cookie notice. In addition, a general opt-out via browser plug-in is available: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

Your IP address is recorded but anonymised immediately (e.g. by deleting the last 8 bits). This means that only a rough localization is possible.

Data processing is carried out on the basis of the legal provisions of § 96 Paragraph 3 TKG and Art 6 Paragraph 1 lit a (consent) and/or f (legitimate interest) of the DSGVO.

Our concern in the sense of the DSGVO (legitimate interest) is the improvement of our offer and our website. Since the privacy of our users is important to us, the user data is anonymised.
