Hosting Provider & Server Log Files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us.These are:• IP address• Browser type and browser version• used operating system• Referrer URL• Host name of the accessing computer• Time of the server request
This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of sensitive content, such as the requests you send to us, the website operator. An encrypted connection is indicated by the browser's address bar changing from "http: //" to "https: //" and the lock icon in your browser bar.If SSL encryption is enabled, the data you submit to us can not be read by third parties.
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact details you provided there, including the IP address, will be stored in order to process the request and in case of follow-up questions. We will not share this information without your consent.Newsletter Data
If you wish to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require an e-mail address from you, as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter.We use this data exclusively for the delivery of the requested information.You can revoke your consent to the storage of data, the e-mail address and its use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter.Registration for our newsletter takes place in a so-called double opt-in procedure. That means, after registration, you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can register with external e-mail addresses.The registration for the newsletter will be logged in order to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the logon and the confirmation time, as well as the IP address. Likewise, changes to your data stored with MailChimp will be logged.
Statistical Survey and Analysis
The newsletters contain a so-called "web beacon", i.e. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the MailChimp server when the newsletter is opened. As part of this call, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of the call are collected. This information is used to improve the technical performance of services based on their specifications or audience and their reading habits, based on their locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or access times.The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our desire nor that of MailChimp to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.
You can terminate the receipt of our newsletter at any time, ie. Revoke your consent. At the same time, your consent to sending it via MailChimp and the statistical analyzes will lapse. A separate revocation of the shipment via MailChimp or the statistical evaluation is unfortunately not possible.A link to cancel the newsletter can be found at the end of each newsletter.
Legal Basis – General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The use of the mail service provider MailChimp, carrying out the statistical surveys and analyzes as well as logging the registration process, are based on our legitimate interests in accordance with. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. We are interested in using a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that serves both our project interests and the expectations of our users.
