We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can be insecure. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Our provider of our website (1&1 IONOS SE) automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to 1&1 when you access our website.

These are:

  • browser type and browser version
  • used operating system
  • referrer URL (where you came from)
  • hostname of the accessing computer
  • time of the server request
  • IP address
  • your length of stay on our website

1&1 IONOS SE, WebAnalytics, does not use cookies. In addition, IP addresses and browser IDs are stored anonymously so that no conclusions can be drawn about individual visitors. This data is not merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to subsequently check this data if we become aware of specific indications of illegal use.

The legal basis is Art. 6 (1) lit. b in conjunction with Art. 6 (1) lit. c, f.

SSL/TSL Encryption
Our site uses SSL/TSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line begins with “https://” and the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties. We currently use 256bit encryption.
