To protect your privacy, we do not load any third-party content without your consent. All graphics, fonts, and necessary scripts are provided directly from our servers, to ensure maximum control.
We refrain from active tracking and only analyze anonymous server log files to improve our site and keep it secure.
Any data you enter, for example in blog comments or the contact form, serve their direct purpose only and are neither processed further nor passed on to third parties.
In general, you can visit our website without revealing personal data If we collect personal data such as your name, your address or your e-mail address on certain pages, this always happens on a voluntary basis and will not be passed on to third parties without your explicit consent.
Please note that despite our high security standards, data transmission on the Internet can have security gaps. Absolute protection of data from access by third parties is therefore not possible.
Cookies are small text files used by websites to make the user experience more efficient. Think of cookies like tiny post-it notes that your web browser stores on your computer, to remember certain information.
Our website uses two types of cookies. The first type are so-called "session cookies". These are comparable to small memory aids, which exist only for the duration of your visit to our website. They enable our website to remember various information as you navigate from page to page. As soon as you leave our web presence or close your browser, these cookies are automatically deleted.
The second type are cookies that remain on your device until you manually delete them. These cookies allow our website to recognize you on a return visit and consider any previously set preferences, such as language settings.
Our web server automatically collects and stores certain information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us.
Each time you visit a website, your web browser automatically sends certain information to the server of that website. This information is stored in server log files. This includes the browser type and version, the operating system you are using, the so-called referrer URL, the hostname of the accessing computer (here your IP address is stored, but anonymized) and the time of the server request.
To protect your privacy, we store your IP address in an anonymized form. This means that the last part of your IP address is set to "0", making it impossible for us to assign this specific IP address to a particular internet connection.
The referrer URL is the web address of the page from which you arrived at our website. It could, for example, be a search engine where you searched for information, or a link you clicked on another website.
This data is not merged with other data sources and does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person. However, if we become aware of concrete indications of unlawful use, we reserve the right to check this data retrospectively. For data protection reasons, the log files are automatically deleted after 90 days.
We would like to clarify that no tracking takes place on our website. In other words, we do not track your activities on our website. The only data we use for statistical purposes come from the server log files, which are completely anonymous.
Our statistical tool processes these data automatically every day, but even from these data, no conclusions about a specific person can be drawn.
No user profiles or similar are created. We use these data merely to improve our website and ensure that we provide our users with the best possible service.
We welcome your contributions to our blog. When you leave a comment, we collect the data entered in the comment form. This includes your name, your e-mail address, and your website, if provided.
Your e-mail address will not be published and is used exclusively for possible follow-up questions. In addition, we store the date and time of your comment as well as an anonymized version of your IP address, just like with the server log files.
This information is stored as long as the corresponding blog post exists on our website. However, upon written request, we can delete your comments and the associated data.
Our servers are located exclusively in Germany and any data transmission takes place within this territory. All data transmissions are SSL-encrypted and we store your data according to the latest security standards.
Our infrastructure is monitored around the clock by us and protected by a multi-layered security system at the server and data center level. Daily backups are created and stored encrypted in our local data center in Germany.
Your data security is of the utmost importance to us and we do everything possible to keep your data safe. As evidence of this, we use the same basis for all our websites and platforms and thus also have our own interest in secure data.
For further improvement of our website security and performance, we use services from Cloudflare. Cloudflare is a web optimization and security service, which among other things, serves to prevent attacks on our website and to improve loading times.
In this process, it can happen that your connection data are processed by Cloudflare. However, Cloudflare does not store any personal data and has no access to these, but instead, passes these on neutrally.
We use Cloudflare merely as a firewall, for intelligent defense against attacks and as a so-called CDN, so that the data of our website (e.g., images, fonts, styles) load as quickly as possible for you.
You have the right to information, correction, deletion, restriction, data portability, revocation, and objection concerning your personal data stored with us. Should you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or your data protection claims have been violated in another way, you can contact us or the data protection authority.
