Access data/ Server log files
The provider (or his webspace provider) collects data on every access to the offer (referred to as server log files). Said access data includes:
Name of the requested website, file name, date and time of the request, data volume transferred, notification of successful request, browser type and version, operating system of the user, referrer URL (the previously visited website page), IP address and the requesting provider.
The provider uses the log files exclusively for statistical analyses for the purpose of operating, securing and optimising the offer. However, the provider reserves the right to examine the log files at a later point in the event that concrete indications give rise to reasonable suspicion of unlawful utilisation.
Handling of Personal Data
Personal data is information that make a person identifiable, i.e. data that can be traced back to a person. This includes the name, e-mail address or phone number as well as data on websites viewed by someone.
The provider collects and uses personal data only if the law generally permits this or the users consent to the data collection.
When contacting the seller (for example via contact form or e-mail), information on the user are stored in order to process the request and in case of follow-up questions.
Comments and posts
If users leave comments on the blog or other pots, their IP addresses are stored. This is done for security of the provider, if someone illegal contents writes in comments and posts (insults, banned political propaganda, etc.). In this case the provider can be held liable even for the comment or post and is therefore interested in the identitiy of the author..
