In addition, we use the anonymous information for statistical purposes. They help us to optimize our range of products and technology. We also reserve the right to subsequently check the log files in case of suspicion of illegal use of our offer.

Definition: Personal data is any information that uniquely identifies a person. It is therefore data that can be traced back to a person.
These personal data include the first name and surname, the telephone number and the e-mail address. Personal data also includes information on hobbies, memberships and preferences as well as websites that have been accessed.
These data are only collected, used and if necessary passed on by the provider if the legislator expressly permits this or if the user agrees to the collection, processing, use and passing on of the data.

If comments or other contributions are written and published on our website, we store the IP address, the user name and the time of creation. These data are collected for security reasons, since the provider can be prosecuted for illegal content (prohibited propaganda, insults, etc.), even if they were created by third parties. In such a case, the information is used to determine the identity of the author.

Within the framework of this procedure, the order of the newsletter, the sending of the confirmation e-mail and the receipt of the registration confirmation are recorded.
