Accessed data / Server log files
The Provider (or its web space provider) collects data each time the Offer is accessed (referred to as server log files). The accessed data includes:
The name of the website accessed, file, date and time of access, volume of data transferred, report on successful access, browser type including version, user operating system, referrer URL (previously visited page), IP address along with inquiring provider.

The Provider uses protocol data only for statistical analysis for the purposes of operation, security, and optimization of the offer. The Provider reserves the right to subsequently check the protocol data if there is reasonable suspicion of illegal use, based on a specific indication.

Handling personal data 
Personal data is information that can be used to specifically identify a person. This is a detail that can be traced directly back to a single person. This includes the name, the email address, and the telephone number.

Personal data are only collected, used, and forwarded by the Provider if this is permissible under the law or if the user has consented to the collection of data.

Making contact 
When the Provider is contacted (for example by sending an email) the information provided by the user will be stored for the purposes of processing the inquiry, as well as for the case that that follow-up questions are asked. We will not pass this data on to any third party without your consent.

Advice regarding electronic mail (email):
Information sent in an unencrypted email by you to us might be read by third parties during the transmission process. Generally, we do not have the possibility to check your identity, and do not know who conceals behind an email address. For this reason, legally secure communication is not ensured when communicating by email. Like many email providers, we implement filters against unsolicited advertising (spam filters) which erroneously, though seldom, classify normal emails automatically as unsolicited advertising and delete them. Emails containing harmful programs ("viruses") are also automatically deleted by us.

Interest form
If you submit us your inquiry via the interest form provided on our site, we will store your data together with the contact details filled in the template by you for the purpose of handling your inquiries, and for the case, further questions regarding your inquiry arise. We will not forward this data without your prior consent.

Involving the services and content of third parties 
It is possible that, within the scope of this online offer, the content of third parties is integrated, such as map content from Google Maps, RSS feeds, or graphics from other websites. This always assumes that the provider of this content (hereafter referred to as 'Third-Party Provider') identifies the user's IP address. This is because without the IP address, it cannot send the content to the corresponding user's browser. The IP address is therefore required for the display of this content. The Provider attempts to use only such data from corresponding Third-Party Providers who use the IP addresses solely for the purpose of delivering the content. However, the Provider has no influence in cases where the Third-Party Provider uses the IP address for other purposes, such as for statistical purposes. The Provider shall make this known to the user as soon as it becomes aware of such.

Getty Images 
This offer may include stock photos supplied by Getty Images. The images can be identified by a frame with the words "Getty Images" on it. The display of these images assumes that Getty Images has access to the user's address, such that the images can be delivered to the user's browser. The IP address is therefore required for the display of this content. Based on the information currently available, the IP address is used solely for this purpose. However, the Provider has no influence in cases where Getty Images uses the IP address for other purposes, such as for statistical purposes. If the Provider is aware of any other uses, the user will be informed and/or the images removed.
