What data is collected and why
In the server statistics, data is automatically stored that the browser transmits in order to enable you to visit the website. This data can generally not be attributed to specific individuals. This data is not merged with other data sources. As far as data (e.g. the IP address) is concerned, this data is deleted within eight weeks. This data is used for statistical analysis for the purpose of operating, securing and optimizing this website.
When you write comments on the website, we collect the data displayed in the comment form, as well as your IP address and user agent string (which identifies the browser) to support spam detection.
Embedded content from other websites
Links to other websites
The provider of this website is not liable for the content of other providers that can be accessed via hyperlinks. The linked external websites are exclusively foreign content for which we assume no liability and whose content we do not adopt as our own. Although these contents were checked for their legality and morality before linking, it cannot be ruled out that contents may be subsequently changed by the providers. We are not obliged to constantly check the linked websites for changes. However, if you notice any legal infringements or other inappropriate content on linked websites, please inform us accordingly. In addition, we expressly distance ourselves from illegal and immoral internet content.
Duration of data storage
If you write a comment, it will be stored indefinitely, including metadata. In this way, we can automatically recognize and release follow-up comments instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
We are happy to provide information about your personal data stored with us, as well as their origin, recipients or categories of recipients to whom this data is passed on, and the purpose of storage. You can exercise this right at any time and, if necessary, a right to correction, blocking, and deletion of your data in accordance with Article 17 of the General Data Protection Regulation. To do so, send a request by e-mail to the address given in the imprint and please use the subject line „Data Protection.“
Data transfer to third parties; change of purpose
Data will only be passed on to third parties if this is necessary to fulfill the contract and/or there is a legal obligation to do so in individual cases. External service providers are partially used to process your data. If your data is to be used for other purposes, we will inform you in advance and only use the data if you have expressly given your consent.
We reserve the right to change the data protection declaration in order to adapt it to changed legal situations, or in the event of changes to the service or data processing. However, this only applies with regard to statements on data processing. If user consent is required or if provisions of the contractual relationship with users are part of the data protection declaration, changes will only be made with the consent of the users. Users are asked to regularly inform themselves about the content of the data protection declaration.
