Log files
When you visit our website, the device from which you retrieved the page automatically transfers log files (connection data) to our provider’s server. Log files contain, for instance, the IP address of the device that you are using to access the website or service, the type of browser accessing it, the website that you visited previously, your system configuration, and date and time information. Our provider only stores IP addresses to the extent necessary for performing the services. Otherwise, IP addresses are deleted or anonymised. As such, IP addresses of visitors to these web pages are rendered anonymous shortly after terminating the connection. 

Our website may contain links to other websites that are outside our control range and are not subject to this data protection declaration. Should you access other websites via the links provided, it may be that the operators of the other websites collect information about you and use it in accordance with their own data protection guidelines, which may differ from our provisions.

We have the relevant technical and organisational measures in place to guarantee the security of your information and to protect it from unauthorised access, manipulation or destruction.

Integration of third-party services and content

It may happen that third-party content, such as videos on YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are integrated within this online offer. This always requires the provider of such content (referred to in the following as ‘third-party providers’) to make use of a user’s IP address. Without the IP address, they would be unable to send the content to the respective user’s browser. This means that the IP address is necessary for the presentation of this content. We endeavour only to use content whose provider uses the IP address solely for delivering the content. However, we have no influence over third-party providers storing IP addresses, for instance, for statistical purposes. Insofar as we are aware of this, we will notify users accordingly.
