The information below tells you how we handle your personal data, how and for what purpose this data is used, to whom we pass this data and how we protect your personal data.
When visitors post comments on the site, we collect the data displayed in the comment form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and the user agent string (this identifies the browser) to help detect spam.
If you are a registered user and upload photos to this website, please do not upload photos with an EXIF GPS location. Visitors to this website could download photos stored on this website and extract their location information.
When you write a comment on our website, this can be a consent to store your name, email address and website in cookies. This is a convenience feature so that if you want to write another comment, you do not have to enter all this data again. These cookies are stored for one year.
If you have an account and log in to this website, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie does not contain any personally identifiable information and is discarded when you close your browser.

Embedded content from other websites
Posts on this website may contain embedded content (for example, videos, images, posts, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves exactly as if the visitor had visited the other website.
With whom we share your data
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.
How long we store your data
When you post a comment, it is saved indefinitely, including metadata. This way, we can automatically detect and approve follow-up comments instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users who register on our site, we additionally store the personal information they provide in their user profiles. All users can view, change, or delete their personal information at any time (the username cannot be changed). Administrators of the website can also view and modify this information.
What rights you have to your data
According to Art. 15 of the GDPR, you have the right to obtain information about the processing of your personal data.
If you have an account on this website or have posted comments, you can request an export of your personal data from us, including any data you have provided to us. In addition, you can request the deletion of all personal data that we have stored about you. This does not include data that we are required to retain for administrative, legal or security needs.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments could be examined by an automated service for spam detection.
This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as the inquiries you send to us. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Hosting and emailing
The hosting services used by us serve to provide the following services: Infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space and database services, e-mail dispatch, security services and technical maintenance services, which we use for the purpose of operating this online offer.
In doing so, we, or our hosting provider, process inventory data, contact data, content data, contract data, usage data, meta data and communication data of customers, interested parties and visitors of this online offer on the basis of our legitimate interests in an efficient and secure provision of this online offer pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO in conjunction with Art. 28 DSGVO. Art. 28 DSGVO (conclusion of order processing contract).
Collection of access data and log files
The hosting provider collects on the basis of our legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO data about each access to the server on which this service is located (so-called server log files). The access data includes the name of the website accessed, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.
Log file information is stored for security reasons (e.g. for the clarification of abuse or fraud) for a maximum of 7 days and then deleted. Data whose further storage is necessary for evidentiary purposes is excluded from deletion until the final clarification of the respective incident.
We use the web analytics service Statify. Statify does not store any personal data such as IP addresses – it only counts page views, not visitors. Statify stores the data only for a limited period of time (default: two weeks).
Due to this mode of operation, Statify complies with all requirements of the GDPR.
