Ver­sion for 'normal' human beings

Any data you add to your pro­file will be pub­licly access­able, except your email address.

We may use a cookie to save your lan­guage selec­tion of our site.

Data Pri­vacy Policy

Our web­site may be used with­out enter­ing per­sonal infor­ma­tion. Dif­fer­ent rules may apply to cer­tain ser­vices on our site, how­ever, and are explained sep­a­rately below. We col­lect per­sonal infor­ma­tion from you (e.g. name, address, email address, tele­phone number, etc.) in accor­dance with the pro­vi­sions of German data pro­tec­tion statutes. Infor­ma­tion is con­sid­ered per­sonal if it can be asso­ci­ated exclu­sively to a spe­cific nat­ural person. The legal frame­work for data pro­tec­tion may be found in the German Fed­eral Data Pro­tec­tion Act (BDSG) and the Tele­me­dia Act (TMG). The pro­vi­sions below serve to pro­vide infor­ma­tion as to the manner, extent and pur­pose for col­lect­ing, using and pro­cess­ing per­sonal infor­ma­tion by the provider Daniel Boehme, [email protected], 030.4208.6622.

Please be aware that data trans­fer via the inter­net is sub­ject to secu­rity risks and, there­fore, com­plete pro­tec­tion against third-party access to trans­ferred data cannot be ensured.

Cook­ies

Our web­site makes use of so-called cook­ies in order to rec­og­nize repeat use of our web­site by the same user/internet con­nec­tion sub­scriber. Cook­ies are small text files that your inter­net browser down­loads and stores on your com­puter. They are used to improve our web­site and ser­vices. In most cases these are so-called "ses­sion cook­ies" that are deleted once you leave our website.

To an extent, how­ever, these cook­ies also pass along infor­ma­tion used to auto­mat­i­cally rec­og­nize you. Recog­ni­tion occurs through an IP address saved to the cook­ies. The infor­ma­tion thereby obtained is used to improve our ser­vices and to expe­dite your access to the website.

You can pre­vent cook­ies from being installed by adjust­ing the set­tings on your browser soft­ware accord­ingly. You should be aware, how­ever, that by doing so you may not be able to make full use of all the func­tions of our website.

Server Data

For tech­ni­cal rea­sons, data such as the fol­low­ing, which your inter­net browser trans­mits to us or to our web space provider (so called server log files), is col­lected: - type and ver­sion of the browser you use - oper­at­ing system - web­sites that linked you to our site (refer­rer URL) - web­sites that you visit - date and time of your visit - your Inter­net Pro­to­col (IP) address. This anony­mous data is stored sep­a­rately from any per­sonal infor­ma­tion you may have pro­vided, thereby making it impos­si­ble to con­nect it to any par­tic­u­lar person. The data is used for sta­tis­ti­cal pur­poses in order to improve our web­site and services.

Pur­pose of Registering

We offer you the oppor­tu­nity to sign up for our web­site. The infor­ma­tion entered when sign­ing up, as shown in the reg­is­tra­tion form is col­lected and stored solely for use by our web­site.

This serves to pro­tect us in the event a third party improp­erly and with­out your knowl­edge makes use of your data to sign up for our site. None of this infor­ma­tion is trans­ferred to third par­ties. Nor is any of this infor­ma­tion matched to any infor­ma­tion that may be col­lected by other com­po­nents of our website.

Newslet­ter

Our web­site offers you the oppor­tu­nity to sub­scribe to our newslet­ter. The newslet­ter pro­vides you peri­od­i­cally with infor­ma­tion about our ser­vices.

We will review the email address you pro­vide for the pur­pose of deter­min­ing whether you are in fact the owner of the email address pro­vided or whether the actual owner of said address is autho­rized to receive the newslet­ter. When sub­scrib­ing to our newslet­ter, we will store your IP address as well as the date and time you sub­scribed. This serves to pro­tect us in the event a third party improp­erly and with­out your knowl­edge makes use of your email address to sub­scribe to our newslet­ter. We will not col­lect any other data. The data thereby col­lected is used solely for the pur­pose of receiv­ing our newslet­ter. No data is trans­ferred to third par­ties. Nor is any of this infor­ma­tion matched to any infor­ma­tion that other com­po­nents of our web­site may col­lect. You may cancel your sub­scrip­tion to the newslet­ter at any time.

Use of Google Ana­lyt­ics with anonymization

Our web­site uses Google Ana­lyt­ics, a web analy­sis ser­vice from Google Inc., 1600 Amphithe­atre Park­way, Moun­tain View, CA 94043 USA, here­inafter referred to as “Google“. Google Ana­lyt­ics employs so-called “cook­ies“, text files that are stored to your com­puter in order to facil­i­tate an analy­sis of your use of the site.

The infor­ma­tion gen­er­ated by these cook­ies, such as time, place and fre­quency of your visits to our site, includ­ing your IP address, is trans­mit­ted to Google’s loca­tion in the US and stored there.

We use Google Ana­lyt­ics with an IP anonymiza­tion fea­ture on our web­site. In doing so, Google abbre­vi­ates and thereby anonymizes your IP address before trans­fer­ring it from member states of the Euro­pean Union or sig­na­tory states to the Agree­ment on the Euro­pean Eco­nomic Area.

Google will use this infor­ma­tion to eval­u­ate your usage of our site, to com­pile reports on web­site activ­ity for us, and to pro­vide other ser­vices related to website- and inter­net usage. Google may also trans­fer this infor­ma­tion to third par­ties if this is required by law or to the extent this data is processed by third par­ties on Google´s behalf.

Google states that it will in never asso­ciate your IP address with other data held by Google. You can pre­vent cook­ies from being installed by adjust­ing the set­tings on your browser soft­ware accord­ingly. You should be aware, how­ever, that by doing so you may not be able to make full use of all the func­tions of our website.

Google also offers a dis­abling option for the most common browsers, thus pro­vid­ing you with greater con­trol over the data which is col­lected and processed by Google. If you enable this option, no infor­ma­tion regard­ing your web­site visit is trans­mit­ted to Google Ana­lyt­ics. How­ever, the acti­va­tion does not pre­vent the trans­mis­sion of infor­ma­tion to us or to any other web ana­lyt­ics ser­vices we may use. For more infor­ma­tion about the dis­abling option pro­vided by Google, and how to enable this option, visit https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

Use of reCAPTCHA

In order to pro­tect input forms on our site, we use the “reCAPTCHA” ser­vice of Google Inc., 1600 Amphithe­atre Park­way, Moun­tain View, CA 94043 USA, here­inafter "Google." By means of this ser­vice it can be dis­tin­guished whether the cor­re­spond­ing input is of human origin or is cre­ated improp­erly by auto­mated machine processing.

To our knowl­edge, the refer­rer URL, the IP address, the behav­iour of the web­site vis­i­tors, infor­ma­tion about the oper­at­ing system, browser and length of stay, cook­ies, dis­play instruc­tions and scripts, user input behav­iour and mouse move­ments in the “reCAPTCHA” check­box are con­veyed to “Google.”

Google uses the infor­ma­tion obtained, among other things, to dig­i­tize books and other printed matter as well as to opti­mize ser­vices such as Google Street View and Google Maps (e.g. house number and street name recognition).

The IP address pro­vided as part of “reCAPTCHA” is not merged with other data from Google unless you are logged into your Google Account at the time the "reCAPTCHA" plug-in is used. If you want to pre­vent this trans­mis­sion and stor­age of data by “Google” about you and your behav­iour on our web­site, you must log out of “Google” before you visit our site or before using the reCAPTCHA plug-in.

The use of the “reCAPTCHA” ser­vice is accord­ing to the Google Terms of Use:

Use of Face­book components

Our web­site employs com­po­nents pro­vided by facebook.com. Face­book is a ser­vice of Face­book Inc., 1601 S. Cal­i­for­nia Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA.

Each time our web­site receives an access request equipped with a Face­book com­po­nent, the com­po­nent prompts your browser to down­load an image of this Face­book com­po­nent. Through this process, Face­book is informed pre­cisely which page of our web­site is being visited. 

When you access our site while logged into Face­book, Face­book uses infor­ma­tion gath­ered by this com­po­nent to iden­tify the pre­cise page you are view­ing and asso­ciates this infor­ma­tion to your per­sonal account on Face­book. When­ever you click on the “Like“ button, for exam­ple, or enter a com­ment, this infor­ma­tion is trans­mit­ted to your per­sonal account on Face­book and stored there.

To this end, we use the “ - enhanced data pro­tec­tion mode - ” option pro­vided by YouTube.

When you dis­play a page that has an embed­ded video, a con­nec­tion will be made to the YouTube server and the con­tent will appear on the web­site via a com­mu­ni­ca­tion to your browser.

Accord­ing to the infor­ma­tion pro­vided by YouTube, in “ - enhanced data pro­tec­tion mode -”, data is only trans­ferred to the YouTube server, in par­tic­u­lar which of our web­sites you have vis­ited, if you watch the video.
