As a user of our website, you will receive all the necessary information in this data protection declaration about how, to what extent and for what purpose we or third-party providers collect data from you and use it. The collection and use of your data is strictly in accordance with the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG). We feel particularly committed to the confidentiality of your personal data and therefore work strictly within the limits set by the law. The collection of this personal data is done on a voluntary basis, if this is possible for us. We also only pass this data on to third parties with your express consent. We ensure a high level of security for particularly confidential data such as in payment transactions or with regard to your inquiries to us by using SSL encryption. However, we would like to take this opportunity to point out the general dangers of Internet use over which we have no control. Especially in e-mail traffic, your data is not secure without further precautions and may be collected by third parties.
Information, deletion, blocking
You can obtain information free of charge at any time about the personal data we have stored about you and about the origin, recipient and purpose of data collection and data processing. You also have the right to demand the correction, blocking or deletion of your data. Excluded from this is data that is kept due to legal regulations or is required for proper business processing. To ensure that a data block can be implemented at any time, data is kept in a blocking file for control purposes. If data is not covered by a legal archiving obligation, we will delete your data at your request. If the archiving obligation applies, we will block your data. For all questions and concerns regarding the correction, blocking or deletion of personal data, please contact our data protection officer using the contact details in this data protection declaration or at the address given in the imprint.
Collection of access data
The delivery and presentation of content via our website technically requires the collection of certain data. When you access our website, these so-called server log files are collected by us or the provider of the web space. These log files do not allow any conclusions to be drawn about you and your person. The corresponding information consists of the name of the website, the file, the current date, the amount of data, the web browser and its version, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet provider, the referrer URL as the page from which you accessed our site, and the corresponding IP address. We use this data for the presentation and delivery of our content as well as for statistical purposes. The information supports the provision and continuous improvement of our offer. We also reserve the right to check the above-mentioned data retrospectively should there be any suspicion of illegal use of our offer.
Server log files
The server log files are anonymized data that are collected when you access our website. This information does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about you personally, but for technical reasons it is indispensable for the delivery and presentation of our content. Furthermore, they serve our statistics and the continuous optimization of our content. Typical log files are the date and time of access, the amount of data, the browser used for access and its version, the operating system used, the domain name of your provider, the page from which you came to our site (referrer URL) and your IP address. Log files also enable a precise check in the event of suspicion of unlawful use of our website.
Our website uses SSL encryption when transmitting confidential or personal content of our users. This encryption is activated, for example, during the processing of payment transactions as well as for inquiries that you send to us via our website. Please make sure that SSL encryption is activated for corresponding activities on your part. The use of encryption is easy to recognize: The display in your browser bar will change from "http://" to "https://". Data encrypted via SSL cannot be read by third parties. Only transmit your confidential information when SSL encryption is activated and contact us in case of doubt.
Use of Google Analytics
You can also prevent the collection by Google Analytics using the following link: Disable Google Analytics. This will set an opt-out cookie that will prevent future collection of your data when you visit our website.
Use of Vimeo plugins
We use the provider Vimeo, among others, for the integration of videos. Vimeo is operated by Vimeo, LLC with headquarters at 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011.
On some of our web pages, we use plugins of the provider Vimeo. When you call up the Internet pages of our website that are provided with such a plugin - for example, "Videoportrait" - a connection is established to the Vimeo servers and the plugin is displayed in the process. This transmits to the Vimeo server which of our Internet pages you have visited. If you are logged in as a member of Vimeo, Vimeo assigns this information to your personal user account. When using the plugin, such as clicking on the start button of a video, this information is also assigned to your user account. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your Vimeo user account before using our website and deleting the corresponding cookies from Vimeo.
For the purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Vimeo, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy, please refer to the Vimeo data protection information: https://vimeo.com/privacy
