Name of the retrieved webpage, file, date and time of the retrieval, transmitted data volume, notification of successful retrieval, browser type and version, the operating system of the user, referrer URL (previously visited website), the IP address and the requesting provider.

The provider only uses the log data for statistical evaluations for purposes concerning the commercial operation, security, and optimization of the Offer. However, the provider reserves the right to check the log data at a later date if there is a reasonable suspicion of unlawful use.

Handling of personal data

Personal data is information, with the help of which a person can be identified, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person. This includes name, e-mail address or phone number. Furthermore, data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites were viewed by someone are included in personal data.

When contacting the provider (for example via a contact form or e-mail), the user’s data is stored for the purpose of processing the inquiry as well as in the event that follow-up questions arise.

Comments and contributions

When users post comments on the blog or other posts, their IP addresses are saved. This is done for the security of the provider if someone writes illegal contents in the comments section or in their contributions (insults, prohibited political propaganda, etc.). In this case, the provider may be prosecuted for the comment or contribution and therefore has an interest in knowing the author’s identity.

Comment subscriptions

The successive comments can be subscribed to by users. Users will receive a confirmation e-mail to verify that they are the owner of the e-mail address entered. Users can unsubscribe from ongoing comment subscriptions at any time. The confirmation e-mail will contain information pertaining to this.

Further data is not collected. This data is only used for sending the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.

You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address as well as its use for the sending of the newsletter at any time. The revocation can take place via a link in the newsletters themselves, in your profile area or by notification to the aforementioned point of contact.

However, we have no control over whether the Third-party Providers use IP addresses, for example, for statistical purposes. As far as we know, we will clarify the users about this.
