Access data / server log files

The Provider collects data every time this website is accessed (server log files).
Access data includes:
name of website accessed, file, date and time of access, volume of data served, message concerning successful access, browser type and version, user operating system, referrer URL (web page accessed directly prior), IP address and inquiring provider.

The Provider uses the logged data solely for statistical evaluations and for the purpose of website operation, security and optimization. However, the Provider reserves the right to check the logged data at a later date if there is clear evidence justifying suspicion of illegal use.


In cases where users establish contact with the Provider (e.g. via a contact form or by e-mail), the user’s details are stored in order to process the inquiry and in case follow-up queries arise.

Third-party providers

Third-party content, e.g. YouTube videos, Google Maps material, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites, may be integrated in this website. To this end, the user’s IP address must be made known to the providers of said content (hereinafter: “Third-party providers”) as the latter would otherwise be unable to transmit their content to the respective user’s browser. This means that the user’s IP address is required in order to display the content. We make every effort to ensure that the providers of third-party content on our website utilise our users’ IP addresses solely for the purpose of delivering their content. However, we have no influence, for example, over whether the third-party providers store our users’ IP addresses for statistical purposes. Where we know how our users’ data is utilized by third-party providers, we inform our users accordingly.

The data collected using Matomo is not used to identify the website visitor, nor is it combined with personal data of the bearer of the pseudonym.
