A. Scope and purpose of the collection, processing and use of personal data when visiting this website
With every visit to this website there is information being stored temporarily in so called log-files (access-log, error-log) that are saved on the hosting server (provider: HostEurope). The following data is automatically recorded without any action on your part and stored for a period of six months:
–Date and time of access,
–Name and URL of the accessed file,
–Operating system of your computer and the browser that you use,
This data is collected and processed for the purposes of facilitating use of this website (creating the connection), guaranteeing long-term system security and stability, for technical administration and optimising this web service, and for internal statistical purposes. The data will be deleted automatically after a period of six months.
B. Transfer of Data to Third Parties

D. Data Protection
There will be no analysis of personal data (e.g., name, address or e-mail address). If personal data is being collected, this only occurs, to the extent possible, with the prior consent of the user of the website, or by for example sending an email to the operator. The operator makes use of appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect any stored personal data against manipulation, partial or total loss, and unauthorised access by third parties. The used security measures are being continually improved in line with technological developments.
It is important to understand that the transmission of any data via the Internet, like for example by e-mail, can offer security vulnerabilities. It is therefore impossible to safeguard data completely against third parties access. The operator cannot assume any liability for damages arising as a result of such security vulnerabilities.
The use by third parties of all published contact details for the purpose of advertising is expressly excluded. The operator reserves the right to take legal steps in the case of the unsolicited sending of advertising information; e.g. by means of spam mail.
