Handling of personal data
Personal data are information which can be used to identify a person, i.e. information which can be traced back to a person. This includes name, email address or phone number. However, information about preferences, hobbies and memberships or which websites have been viewed by a certain person also belong to personal data. Personal data is only collected, used or passed on, if this is legally permitted or the users give their consent to the collection of the data.
Integration of third-party services and contents
It may occur that third-party contents, such as videos from YouTube, maps provided by Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are integrated within this online service offered. This does always require that the providers of these contents (hereinafter referred to as “Third-party providers”) notice the IP address of the users. Without IP address, they could not send the contents to the browser of the respective user. Thus, the IP address is required for displaying these contents. We strive to use only those contents, whose respective providers use the IP address solely for delivering the contents. However, we have no influence on the fact that Third-party providers might store the IP address e.g. for statistical purposes. As far as we know this, we will inform the user about it.

- browser type/browser version
