Provision of chargeable services
If you wish to use the paid services offered on our website, we may need to collect additional data from you for billing purposes and for security reasons. Your name, a valid e-mail address and, if applicable, your address and telephone number as well as further information, depending on the individual case, are regularly requested here. This may also include content that allows us to verify the information provided, such as your ownership of the email address provided. For legal reasons, we must ensure that you actually wish to receive the services offered and that we can properly invoice you for the service. To secure your data, in payment transactions, we work with the SSL encryption standard, recognisable by the browser line "https://".
Collection of access data
The delivery and presentation of the contents via our website technically requires the collection of certain data. When you access our website, these so-called server log files are recorded 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 relevant information consists of the name of the website, the file, the current date, the data volume, 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 switched to our site, and the corresponding IP address. We use this data for the presentation and delivery of our contents as well as for statistical purposes. The information supports the provision and continuous improvement of our offer. We also reserve the right to subsequently check the data mentioned if there is suspicion of illegal use of our offer.
If you use our contact form to send us inquiries, your details from the contact form including the contact data you provided there will be stored for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in the event of further questions. This data will not be passed on without your consent.
Server log files
The server log files are anonymous data that are collected when you access our website. This information does not allow any personal conclusions to be drawn about you, but for technical reasons it is indispensable for the delivery and presentation of our contents. Furthermore, it serves our statistics and the constant optimization of our contents. 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 the provider commissioned by you, the page from which you came to our offer (referrer URL), and your IP address. Logfiles also allow a precise check in case of suspicion of illegal use of our website.
Our website uses SSL encryption for the transmission of confidential or personal content from our users. This encryption is activated, for example, during the processing of payment transactions and for inquiries you make to us via our website. Please make sure that the SSL-encryption is activated by you during corresponding activities. The use of encryption is easy to recognize: The display in your browser line changes from "http://" to "https://". Data encrypted via SSL cannot be read by third parties. Only transmit your confidential information if SSL encryption is activated and if in doubt, please contact us.
The data controller has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) on this
website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the collection and evaluation of data
on the behaviour of visitors to Internet sites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data on
the website from which the person concerned has accessed a website (so-called referrer), which subpages of
the website have been accessed or how often and for how long a subpage has been viewed. A web analysis is
mainly used to optimize a website and for cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.
The Google Analytics component is operated by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA
The data controller uses the suffix "gat._anonymizeIp" for the web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, Google shortens and anonymizes the IP address of the Internet connection of the person concerned when our Internet pages are accessed from a member state of the European Union or from another state that is a party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Google uses the data and information collected to evaluate the use of our website, among other things, to compile online reports for us that show the activities on our website and to provide other services in connection with the use of our website.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are, has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which serves Google, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently enables commission statements.
Cookies are used to store personal information, such as access time, the location from which access came and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned. Whenever you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.
The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as already described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
