Personal data

We only use personal data that you enter electronically on this website, such as your name, email address, postal address or other personal details, for the respective stated purpose; we store this data securely and do not pass it on to third parties. The Provider of this website automatically collects and saves information from the web server, such as the browser you use, your operating system, the referring page, your IP address, the time you accessed the site, etc. Without consulting further data sources, this data cannot be allocated to specific individuals, and we will not analyse this data further insofar as there is no unlawful use of our website.

Form data and comments

If visitors to this website leave comments or make form entries, the data they enter and their IP addresses are saved. This occurs for security reasons, i.e. in the event that an individual authors unlawful content (slander, far-left or far-right propaganda, hate comments, etc.). In this case, we take an interest in identifying the identity of the author.

Our services can also be used without cookies. You can deactivate the placing of cookies, restrict cookies to specific websites or configure your web browser (Chrome, IE, Firefox, etc.) so that it informs you as soon as a cookie is placed.
