The legal bases of data protection are contained in the Federal Data Protection Act and the Telemedia Act.
Access data | server log files
The provider (or their webspace-provider) collects data about every access on their content (so called server log files). The access data contains the name of the accessed website, file name, date and time of retrieval, transmitted data volume, report on successful access, data identifying type and version of the browser software and operating system, referrer URL (previously visited page), IP-address and the enquiring provider. The log files are only used for statistical analyses for the purpose of operation, security and optimization of the content provided. The provider reserves the right to subsequently check log files if there is justified suspicion of unlawful use due to concrete indications.
When you contact the provider (for example, using the contact form or e-mail), the information of the user is stored for the purpose of processing the request and in the event of arising follow-up questions.
Inclusion of services and contents made available by third parties
It can happen that within the provided material content of third parties is included such as YouTube videos, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics. This always assumes that the provider of the third party content identifies the IP address of the user. Without the IP address they can not send any content to the browser of the individual user. The IP address therefore is necessary for the presentation of that content. We strive to only use content whose respective provider use the IP address solely for delivering the content. However, we have no control over third parties for example saving the IP address for statistical purposes. Insofar known to us we inform our users.
