Most areas of this website can be used without having to supply personal information. Any personal data (e.g. name, address or email address) submitted by visitors to our website is done so voluntarily. Access data includes: The name of the requested web page, the file, date and time of the request, the amount of data sent, notification that the web page was successfully opened, browser type plus version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the page visited immediately before), IP address and the requesting provider. The provider only uses the log data for statistical analyzes as is necessary for running, safeguarding, and optimizing the website. This includes name, email address and phone number. But also information on preferences, hobbies, memberships and which websites have been visited by a person is personal data. This always presupposes that the providers of such content (hereinafter “third party provider”) may see the IP address of the user. Without the IP address they would be unable to send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore essential for such content to be displayed. We strive to only use such content for which the respective provider uses the IP addresses for the sole purpose of supplying the content. However, we are powerless to prevent third party providers from storing the IP addresses, e.g. for statistical purposes. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer. Most of the cookies will be deleted from your hard drive after the browser session has ended (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your computer and allow us to recognize your computer during your next visit (so-called persistent cookies). Based on your wishes, you can set your browser either to be informed when a cookie is stored, so that you can decide on acceptance on a case-by-case basis, or to accept all cookies, or to reject all cookies. The user also has the right to correct incorrect data and to block or delete his personal data, as long as this does not contradict legal retention obligations.
