of this website (from herein after referred to as “the offer"). The legal basis of data protection can be found in the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG).

Access data / Server log files

The seller (or his provider) collects data on each access to the offer (so-called server log files). These access data include:

  • Name of the requested web page
  • File, date and time of access
  • Amount of data transferred
  • Notification of successful retrieval
  • Browser type and version
  • The operating system of the user
  • Referrer URL (previously visited page)
  • IP address
  • The requesting provider

The provider uses the data for statistical analysis, for the purpose of the operation, safety and optimization of the offer. However, the provider reserves the right to later check the log data, if there is reasonable suspicion of unlawful use based on concrete evidence.

Handling of personal data

Personal information is information that will help identify a person, i.e., data that can be traced back to a person. This includes the name, email address or telephone number. However, data on preferences, hobbies, memberships, or which web pages were viewed by someone, are also to be considered as personal data.

Personal data is only collected by the seller, used, and passed on, within legal boundaries, or if the user agrees to this.

Contacting the seller

While contacting the seller (for example via the contact form or email) the details of the user are stored in order to process the request, and for the case that follow-up questions may arise.

Integration of services and content provided by third parties

It is possible that this online offer contains third party content, such as YouTube videos, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds, or graphics. The provider of such content (hereinafter referred to as "third party") considers the IP address of the user as being valid. The IP address allows them to send this content to the user’s browser. Thus, the IP address is required in order to present this content. We strive to use only content provided by third parties that are using the IP address only for this purpose. However, third parties can also save IP addresses, for example for statistical purposes, which is out of our control. If we are aware of this, we will also inform the user.


Cookies are small files that enable the user to store specific information related to the device they used to access the site (PC, smartphone, etc.). They make the site more user-friendly, thus also helping the user (for example, with the storage of data-logs). On the other hand, they serve to capture the statistical data of a website’s usage, and the administrators can analyse this data in order to improve their offer. The user can accept or reject the use of cookies. Most browsers have the option of restricting or completely prevented the cookies. Note, however, that not using cookies, or restricting them, may limit the overall usage of the site and, in particular, its user friendliness.

You can find out more on how to manage the cookies from American providers or from EU providers
