The following information is thereby recorded without any action on your part and stored until it is automatically deleted:

  • IP address: In order to be aware of the source of any possible attack on the web server of our web host, the IP addresses of the accessing computers are recorded. They are then stored for at most seven days.
  • Time stamp: the date and time of the access.
  • Request line: That is the path of the target address without the domain. If, for example, you click on an image on our website, the URL e.g. ““ is in the background. The Request line is then “/bild.jpg“.

The above data are processed by us for the following purposes:

  • Apart from the anonymized statistical analysis, the data are also used to optimise the services of our web host and in order to identify and repulse attacks.

The legal basis for the processing of data is Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 f Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (GDPR). Our legitimate interest follows from the purposes of the data collection listed above. In principle, we will not use the data collected to draw conclusions about you. Excepted are measures to investigate attacks on our Internet sites or on the systems of our web host.

When making content through our e-mail address, the following personal data communicated by you will be collected and processed: your e-mail address and, if voluntarily stated by you, further personal data such as your name, first name or telephone number. The text of your e-mail to us will also be stored.

The collection and processing of the above personal data is for the purpose of answering your enquiry. The legal basis for the processing of the data is our legitimate interest in answering your enquiry according to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 f GDPR.

We delete data arising in this context when it is no longer necessary to keep them, or we restrict the processing if statutory retention obligations apply.

Passing on of data
Your personal data are not passed on to others except for the following purposes:

We pass on your personal data to others only if:

  • you have given your explicit consent thereto according to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 a GDPR,
  • that is necessary according to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 f GDPR for invoking, exercising or defending legal rights and there is no reason to assume that you have a superior interest worthy of protection in your data not being passed on,

Google Maps
We use Google Maps. We can thereby show you interactive maps directly on the website and enable you to conveniently use the map function.

From the visit to our website, Google receives the information that you accessed the corresponding sub-page of our website. In addition, the data shown at No. 3 of this declaration are transmitted. That occurs irrespective of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged-in or there is no such account. If you are logged-in through Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not wish this assignment to your Google profile, you must log-out prior to using the interactive map at Google. Google stores your data as user profile and uses the data for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or tailoring the design of its website. That analysis takes place, in particular (even in the case of users not logged-on) for providing targeted advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the formation of this user profile, in which case you must exercise that right directly vis-à-vis Google.
