This privacy statement is intended to inform the users of this website about the nature, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the website operator [insert your contact details].
The website operator takes your data protection very seriously and treats your personal data confidentially and according to the legal regulations. As new technologies and the constant development of this website may result in changes to this data protection declaration, we recommend that you read the data protection declaration again at regular intervals.
Definitions of the terms used (e.g. “personal data” or “processing”) can be found in Art. 4 DSGVO.
We, the website operator or page provider, collect data on access to the website on the basis of our legitimate interest (see Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO) and store these as “server log files” on the server of the website. The following data is logged in this way:
-Time at time of access
-Amount of data sent in bytes
-Source/reference from which you came to the page
-Operating system used
-IP address used
The server log files are stored for a maximum of 7 days and then deleted. The data is stored for security reasons, e.g. to clarify cases of misuse. If data have to be deleted for reasons of proof, they are excluded from deletion until the incident has been finally clarified.

Collection and processing of personal data
The website operator collects, uses and passes on your personal data only if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of data. Personal data includes all information which serves to determine your person and which can be traced back to you – for example your name, e-mail address and telephone number.
You can also visit this website without providing any personal information. However, in order to improve our online services, we store your access data to this website (without personal reference). This access data includes, for example, the file you requested or the name of your Internet provider. The anonymisation of the data does not allow conclusions to be drawn about you personally.
Dealing with contact data
If you contact us as a website operator through the contact options offered, your details will be stored so that they can be used to process and respond to your enquiry. These data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.
Dealing with comments and contributions
If you leave a contribution or comment on this website, your IP address will be stored. This is done on the basis of our legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO and serves the security of us as website operators: Because if your comment violates applicable law, we can be prosecuted for it, which is why we have an interest in the identity of the comment or contribution author.
On the basis of our legitimate interests, this website uses the following data to optimise and analyse our online offering in the sense of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO uses the service “Google Analytics”, which is provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). The service (Google Analytics) uses “cookies” – text files which are stored on your terminal device. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
Google LLC complies with European data protection law and is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active
On this website IP anonymization is used. The IP address of the users is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area and in the other contracting states of the agreement. Only in individual cases is the IP address initially transmitted unabbreviated to a Google server in the USA and then shortened there. By this shortening the personal reference of your IP address is omitted. The IP address of the user transmitted by the browser is not combined with other data stored by Google.
As part of the agreement on the order data agreement, which we as website operator have concluded with Google Inc., the latter uses the information collected to compile an evaluation of website use and website activity and provides services associated with Internet use.
The data collected by Google on our behalf is used to evaluate the use of our online services by individual users, for example to create reports on website activity to improve our online services.
You have the option of preventing cookies from being stored on your device by making the appropriate settings in your browser. It is not guaranteed that you can access all functions of this website without restrictions if your browser does not allow cookies.
