We point out that internet-based data transmissions have security gaps, so that complete protection against access by third parties is impossible.
2. Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and saves information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
Name of the retrieved web page, file, date and time of the retrieval, transmitted data volume, notification of successful retrieval, browser type including version, operating system of the user, referrer URL, the IP address and the requesting provider.
These data cannot be attributed to specific persons. This data is not merged with other data sources. We use the log data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, security and optimization of our offer; However, we reserve the right to review these data at a later date if we become aware of any concrete indications for unlawful use.

are collected and stored exclusively for the use of our offer. When registering on our site, we will also save your IP address and the date and time of your registration. This serves as security on our part in the event that a third party misuses your data and registers with this data on our site without your knowledge. There is no transfer to third parties.

5. Comments and contributions
When users post comments on the blog or other posts, their IP addresses are stored. This occurs in the interest to the security of the offerer, in case someone writes illegal contents (insults, prohibited political propaganda, etc.) in such comments and contributions. In such cases, the provider itself may be prosecuted for the comment or contribution and is therefore interested in the author's identity.
If you would like to receive our newsletter, we require your email address, as well as information that will allow us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address and agree to receive the newsletter. Further data is not collected. This data is only used for sending the newsletter and is not passed on to third parties.
Your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address as well as its use for sending the newsletters can be revoked at any time, for example via the provided link in the newsletter.
Cookies are data records that are sent by the web server to the user's web browser and stored there. These are usually so-called "session cookies", which are deleted after the end of your visit.
However, in some cases, these cookies are stored for later retrieval in order to recognize you again automatically. This recognition is based on the IP address stored in the cookies. The information obtained in this way is used to optimize our offers and to make it easier for you to access our site.
You can determine yourself whether cookies can be collected by setting your browser in such a way that you are informed before a cookie is stored and not having to save it until you explicitly accept it.
