Collection of personal data in case of contact via e-mail or contact form
 When you contact us via e-mail, the data provided by you (especially your e-mail address, and possibly your name and your phone number) will be stored to answer your questions.

When you contact us via the contact form on our website, we will also store the data provided by you (name, contact address, phone number, e-mail address) to answer your request.

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Processing is carried out on the legal basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 b) EU GDPR (pre-contractual measures). Data generated in this context will be erased once their storage is no longer required, or their processing is restricted if there are any statutory storage obligations.

Collection of personal data upon access to our website
If you use the website for informational purposes only, i. e. when you provide us with information elsewhere, we only collect the personal data that your browser transfers to our server. If you want to view our website, we collect the following data which are required from a technical point of view to display our website to you and to ensure stability and security (the legal basis is Art. 6 Sect. 1 p. 1 lit. f EU GDPR):

  • IP address
  • date and time of the request
  • time zone difference with regard to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
  • contents of the request (specific page)
  • access status/HTTP status code
  • data volume transferred in each individual case
  • website which issues the request
  • browser
  • operating system and its interface
  • language and version of the browser software.

In addition to the above-mentioned data, no cookies will be stored on your computer when you use our website. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your hard disk associated with the browser you use and which pass on certain information to the operator that has placed the cookies (in this case our company). Cookies cannot execute any programs or transfer viruses to your computer. They are used to make our Internet services more user-friendly and efficient.

Use of cookies:
This website uses no cookies,

Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information

Data security
In addition, we have implemented technical and organizational security measures to protect personal data, especially against accidental or deliberate manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons. Our security measures are continuously adapted according to the latest technological developments.

If technical or legal developments require a modification of security and data protection measures, we will make the necessary modifications. Please ensure that you have read the latest version of our data protection declaration.

What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
