I naturally comply with the statutory provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz), the German Telemedia Act (Telemediengestz) and other relevant data protection provisions.

The data protection applies to personal data. According to section 3(1) of the Federal Data Protect Act, these are individual details about the personal or material circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person. Such details include, for example, name, postal address, e-mail address or telephone number as well as user data like your IP address.

I wish to point out that there are security risks inherent in transmitting data on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail). It is not possible to completely protect the data from access by third parties.

  • page from which the file was requested
  • access status (transfer file, file not found, etc.)
  • web browser and operating system used
  • full IP address of the requesting computer
  • volume of data transferred

I save these data on grounds of technical security, especially to protect against hacking attempts on my web server.

The data are exclusively used for this purpose and in anonymised form for statistical purposes; the data are neither compared with other data nor passed on to third parties either in whole or in part.

The content of my website has been compiled with the greatest of care. However, I am unable to warrant that the content is accurate, complete and up-to-date. According to section 7(1) of the German Telemedia Act, as a service provider I am responsible for my own content on this website in accordance with the general laws. Under sections 8 to 10 of the German Telemedia Act, as a service provider I am not, however, under any obligation to monitor third-party content transmitted or saved or to look for circumstances which could suggest unlawful activity. Duties to remove or block the use of information under the general laws remains unaffected hereby. However, I am only able to accept liability in this connection from the time when I gain knowledge of an actual breach. I will remove such content immediately if I become aware of such breaches.

I am unaware of the content and scope of the data that will be collected, processed and stored should you click on the links to the websites of other providers. I have no influence on and do not take steps to ensure that other providers observe the applicable data protection provisions.
When using linked websites, you must therefore read the data privacy notices of the respective other providers yourself.
