The legal basis for the privacy policy can be found in the Federal Data Protection Act [BDSG] and the Telecommunications Media Act [TMG].

Access data / server log files

The provider (or a webspace provider) collects data about the access of the website (so-called server log files). The access data include:

Name of the retrieved website, file, date and time of retrieval, message of successful retrieval, browser type and version, referring URL (the site visited previously) and IP address.
The provider uses the log data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, security and optimization of the website. The provider, however, reserves the right, to subsequently check the log data, if due to concrete grounds, the legitimate suspicion of unlawful use is the case.

Handling of personal data

Personal data is information with which a person can be identified, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person. This includes, names, e-mail addresses or phone numbers. But also information about preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites a person has viewed is considered personal data.

Personal data will only be collected, processed or passed on by the provider, if this is legally permitted or if the user consents to the data collection.


In case the provider is contacted (for example via a contact form or by e-mail) the user's information is stored for the purpose of processing the query as well as for the case that follow-up queries might occur.

Comments and contributions

When users comment in a blog or contribute otherwise, their IP addresses are stored. This is for the security of the provider, for the case that a person describes illegal contents in comments or contributions (insults, prohibited political propaganda, etc.) In this case the provider can be held responsible for the comment or contribution, and therefore has an interest in the identity of the author.
