Included are: name of the website, file, date, amount of data, web browser and web browser version, operating system, the domain name of your Internet provider, the so-called Referrer URL (the page from which you accessed our offer) and the IP address.
Without this data, it would not be technically possible to deliver and display the contents of the website. In this respect, the collection of data is imperative. In addition, we use the anonymous information for statistical purposes. They help us to optimize the offer and the technology. In addition, we reserve the right to subsequently inspect the log files in case of suspected illegal use of our offer.

Definition: Personal information is any information that uniquely identifies a person. It is therefore data that can be traced back to a person.
These personal data include the first name and name, the telephone number and the e-mail address. Personal information also includes information on hobbies, memberships and preferences as well as websites that have been accessed.
These data are only collected, used and, if necessary, passed on by the provider, provided the legislator expressly permits this or the user agrees to the collection, processing, use and disclosure of the data.

In addition, to ensure that an e-mail address is not abused by third parties in our mailing list, we work in accordance with the law with the so-called "double opt-in" procedure. As part of this process, the order of the newsletter, the dispatch of the confirmation email and the receipt of the confirmation of registration will be logged.

Facebook social plug-in
We include Facebook plug-ins on our websites (Address: 1601 South California Ave., Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA). You will recognize the plug-ins - an overview can be found here: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/Plug-ins/ - on Like-Button (Like) or the Facebook logo.
If you call one of our websites with Facebook plug-in, a direct connection to Facebook will be established. We have no control over the type and extent of data collected, stored and processed by Facebook. We can only inform you according to our knowledge.
Facebook will be informed via the plug-in that you have accessed the corresponding website of our offer. This also applies to users who are not registered with Facebook. In this case, there is the possibility that Facebook stores the IP address.
If you are a member of Facebook and logged in, the call of a website with Facebook plug-in can be clearly assigned to your user account on Facebook. In addition, the plug-ins transmit all interactions, for example, if you use the Like button or leave a comment.
To prevent Facebook from storing information about you, please log out of Facebook before visiting our websites. You can also block the plug-ins with add-ons for the browser (for example, "Facebook Blocker").
Google+ social plug-in
We integrate the social plug-in of Google+ (Google plus) on our websites, recognizable by the "+1" sign on a white or colored background. The plug-in is provided by Google Inc. (short Google, address: 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA).
When you visit a website with a Google+ button, it will connect to Google's servers. Google transmits the content of the button and integrates it on the corresponding website. At the same time, Google receives information about which page has just been visited. According to Google, personal data is not collected until the Google+ button is clicked. For members of Google+ who are logged in, even without interaction, Google at least stores and processes the IP address. We have no control over the amount of data stored in this context.
Members of Google Plus who do not want our websites to collect and store information about them, please log out of their Google+ account before visiting our offer.

Personal data is stored according to the principles of data avoidance and data economy only as long as required or required by law (legal storage period). If the purpose of the information collected is omitted or the storage period ends, we block or delete the data.
Your rights to information, correction, suspension, cancellation and opposition
