Scope of application
The legal framework for data protection may be found in the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG).
Access data / server logfiles
The provider (or his webspace provider) collects data about each access to the offer (so-called server logfiles). The access data include:
Name of the retrieved web page, file, date and time of the retrieval, transmitted data volume, notification of successful retrieval, browser type and version, the operating system of the user, referrer URL, the IP address and the requesting provider.
The provider uses the log data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, security and optimisation of the offer. However, the provider reserves the right to check the log data subsequently, if there is reasonable suspicion of unlawful use.
When contacting the provider (for example by using the contact form or by email), the information provided by the user is stored for the purpose of processing the inquiry as well as in the event that follow-up questions arise.
Integration of third-party services and content
It is possible that third party contents, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites, may be included within this website. This always assumes that the providers of these contents (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) perceive the IP address of the users. Without the IP address, they could not send the content to the user’s browser. The IP address is therefore required for the display of these contents. We endeavour to only use those content, whose respective providers use the IP address only for the delivery of the content. However, we cannot influence whether the third-party vendors store the IP address, for example for statistical purposes. Insofar as it is known to us, we will clarify the users about it.

Use of Facebook Social Plugins
This offer uses social plugins (“plugins”) from the social network facebook.com, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins are identifiable 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 the appearance of the Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
When a user browses a web page that contains such a plugin, the browser builds a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated into it by the website. Therefore, the provider has no influence on the extent of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore informs the user according to his knowledge.
By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has requested the corresponding page of the offer. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, for example press the Like button or comment, the corresponding information from your browser is sent directly to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is the possibility that Facebook will find and save the IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymous IP address is stored in Germany.
The purpose and scope of the data collection, the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as the rights and settings for the protection of the privacy of the users, can be found in Facebook’s privacy statement: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.
If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him about this offer and to link it with his member data stored on Facebook, he must log out of Facebook before visiting the Internet presence.
It is also possible to block Facebook social plugins with add-ons for your browser, for example with the “Facebook Blocker”.
