The following regulations provide information about the type, scope and purpose of collection as well as the use and processing of personal data by the provider.
We would like to point out that the internet-based data transfer is subject to security vulnerabilities and that it is therefore impossible to provide complete protection against access by third parties.

We offer you the option of contacting us by e-mail and/or a contact form on our website. In this case, the information provided by the user will be stored for the purpose of processing his/her contact. The data will not be passed on to third parties.

We offer you the option of leaving comments on the individual contributions on our site. In this case, the IP address of the author/connection owner is stored. This storage is for our security in the event that the author interferes with third party rights and/or unlawful content.

Nor is there comparison of the data collected in this way with data that may be collected by other components of our site.
Under the Federal Data Protection Act, you can contact us free of charge if you have any questions about the collection, processing or use of your personal data and its correction, blocking, deletion or revocation of your consent.
