Data Protection
The protection of your personal data is very important to us. Therefore we process your data exclusively on the basis of the legal regulations (GDPR). In this privacy policy we inform you about the most important aspects of data processing within our website.

Contact us
If you contact us via the form on the website or by e-mail, your data will be stored to process the request and in case of follow-up questions.We will not share this information without your consent.

Personal data
Personal data that you transmit electronically on this website, such as name, e-mail address or other personal information, will only be used by us for the specified purpose, kept in a safe place and not disclosed to third parties. The provider automatically collects and stores information on the web server such as browser, operating system, link page, IP address, time of access, etc. These data can not be assigned to any specific person without checking other 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 saved. This is for security, if someone authorizes illegal content (insults, left or right-wing extremist propaganda, hate mailing, etc.). In this case, we are interested in the identity of the author.

Access data / server log files.
The provider (or his web space provider) collects data about every access to the offer (so-called server log files). Access data includes:
Name of the retrieved web page, file, date and time of retrieval, amount of data transferred, notification of successful retrieval, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.
The provider uses the log data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, security and optimization of the offer. However, the provider reserves the right to retrospectively check the log data if, on the basis of concrete evidence, the legitimate suspicion of unlawful use exists.

Cookies
Cookies are small files that make it possible to store specific device-related information on users’ access devices (PCs, smartphones, etc.). Cookies support the user-friendliness of web pages and therefore help users (for example storage of login data). On the other hand, they also serve to record the statistical data of website use, and enable the analysis of it to improve our offer. Users can influence the use of cookies. Most browsers have an option to restrict or completely prevent the storage of cookies. However, it is noted that the use and especially the user-friendliness is limited without cookies. You can manage many online display cookies by companies via the US site www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU site www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices/.

Comments and posts
When users leave comments in the blog or other posts, their IP addresses are saved. This is for the security of the provider, if someone writes in comments and posts illegal content (insults, prohibited political propaganda, etc.). In this case, the provider himself may be prosecuted for the comment or contribution and is therefore interested in the identity of the author.

Comment subscriptions
The follow-up comments can be subscribed to by users. Users will receive a confirmation email to verify that they own the email address they entered. Users can unsubscribe from ongoing comment subscriptions at any time. The confirmation email will contain notices.

The sole purpose of this storage is to prove that a third party misuses an e-mail address and registers for newsletter reception without the knowledge of the person entitled. You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time. The revocation can be made via a link in the newsletters themselves, in your profile area or by notification to the above contact options.
Integration of services and contents of third parties
It may happen that content from third parties, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are included in this online offer. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third party provider”) perceive the IP address of the users. Because without the IP address, they could not send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content. We endeavor to use only content whose respective providers use the IP address solely for the delivery of the content. However, we do not have any influence on this if the third parties provide the IP address e.g. save for statistical purposes. As far as we know, we will inform users about it.

Third Party – Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about the use of the online offer by the users are usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online offering by users, to compile reports on the activities within this online offering and to provide us with other services related to the use of this online offer and internet usage. In this case, pseudonymous usage profiles of the users can be created from the processed data. We only use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymization. This means that the IP address of the users will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. The IP address submitted by the user’s browser will not be merged with other data provided by Google. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by setting their browser software accordingly; Users may also prevent the collection by Google of the data generated by the cookie and related to their use of the online offer as well as the processing of such data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http: // tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

Use of Facebook social plugins
This website uses social plugins (“plugins”) from the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins are recognizable by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on a blue tile or a “thumbs up” sign) or are marked with the addition “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list and appearance of Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
When a user calls a web page of this offer that contains such a plugin, its browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser and incorporated by him into the website. The provider therefore has no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore informs users according to their level of knowledge:
By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has accessed the corresponding page of the offer. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, for example, press the Like button or leave a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will find out and save their IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymous IP address is stored in Germany.
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as the related rights and setting options for protecting the privacy of users, can be found in Facebook’s privacy policy: https: //www.facebook.com/about/privacy/ ,
If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him via this offer and associate it with his member data stored on Facebook, he must log out of Facebook before visiting the website.
It is also possible to block Facebook social plugins with add-ons for your browser, for example with the “Facebook Blocker”.

Privacy Policy for the use of Pinterest
On our website, we use social plugins from the Pinterest social network operated by Pinterest Inc., 635 High Street, Palo Alto, CA, 94301, USA (“Pinterest”).
