Telephone: + 49 (0)7181 / 70 05 - 0.
The legal bases of data protection can be found in the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and Telemedia Act (TMG).
Access data / Server log files
Each time this service is accessed, the provider (or their webspace provider) collects data about the access, known as “server log files”. Access data include:
the name of the accessed website, the file, date and time of access, the amount of transmitted data, a message indicating successful access, the browser type and version, the user’s operating system, the referrer URL (the site visited previously), the IP address, and the provider requesting access.
The provider will use the protocol data only for statistical evaluation to help operate and optimise the service and make it more secure. However, the provider reserves the right to examine the protocol data afterwards if he suspects the site is being used illegally and there are specific indications to justify this suspicion.
When a user contacts the provider for the first time (e.g., through a contact form or e-mail), her information is stored in order to process her inquiry or answer any follow-up questions.
Incorporating third-party content and services
This online service will sometimes incorporate third-party content such as YouTube videos, material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites. This always assumes that the provider of such content (“third-party provider”) will detect the user’s IP address. Because without the IP address, they would not be able to send the content to the browser of the user in question. Therefore, the IP address is needed if this content is to be displayed. We make every effort to use only content whose provider uses the IP address only to deliver such content. However, we have no influence on whether the third-party provider might use the IP address for statistical purposes, for example. If we become aware of this, we will notify the user accordingly.
