Table of Con­tents


The per­son respon­si­ble for data pro­tec­tion is the ope­ra­tor of this web­site named in the imprint.

Over­view of pro­ces­sing

The fol­lo­wing over­view sum­ma­ri­zes the types of data pro­ces­sed and the pur­po­ses of their pro­ces­sing and refers to the data sub­jects.

Types of data pro­ces­sed

  • inven­to­ry data.
  • Cont­act details.
  • con­tent data.
  • usa­ge data.
  • Meta/Communication Data.

Cate­go­ries of data sub­jects

  • user.

Pur­po­ses of pro­ces­sing

  • Pro­vi­si­on of con­trac­tu­al ser­vices and cus­to­mer ser­vice.
  • Safe­ty mea­su­res.
  • Manage­ment and respon­se to inqui­ries.
  • feed­back.
  • Pro­vi­si­on of our online offer and user-fri­end­li­ne­ss.

Dele­ti­on of data

The data pro­ces­sed by us will be dele­ted in accordance with the legal requi­re­ments as soon as your con­sent to pro­ces­sing is revo­ked or other per­mis­si­ons are no lon­ger appli­ca­ble (e.g. if the pur­po­se of pro­ces­sing this data no lon­ger appli­es or it is not requi­red for the pur­po­se).

If the data is not dele­ted becau­se it is requi­red for other, legal­ly per­mis­si­ble pur­po­ses, its pro­ces­sing will be limi­t­ed to the­se pur­po­ses. This means that the data will be blo­cked and not pro­ces­sed for other pur­po­ses. This appli­es, for exam­p­le, to data that must be stored for com­mer­cial or tax reasons or who­se sto­rage is neces­sa­ry to assert, exer­cise or defend legal claims or to pro­tect the rights of ano­ther natu­ral or legal per­son.

Our data pro­tec­tion infor­ma­ti­on can also con­tain fur­ther infor­ma­ti­on on the sto­rage and dele­ti­on of data, which app­ly pri­ma­ri­ly to the respec­ti­ve pro­ces­sing.

Pro­vi­si­on of the online offer and web hos­ting

In order to be able to pro­vi­de our online offer secu­re­ly and effi­ci­ent­ly, we use the ser­vices of one or more web hos­ting pro­vi­ders from who­se ser­vers (or ser­vers mana­ged by them) the online offer can be acces­sed. For the­se pur­po­ses, we may use infra­struc­tu­re and plat­form ser­vices, com­pu­ting capa­ci­ty, sto­rage space and data­ba­se ser­vices, as well as secu­ri­ty and tech­ni­cal main­ten­an­ce ser­vices.

The data pro­ces­sed as part of the pro­vi­si­on of the hos­ting offer may include all infor­ma­ti­on rela­ting to the users of our online offer that ari­ses in the cour­se of use and com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on. This regu­lar­ly includes the IP address, which is neces­sa­ry in order to be able to deli­ver the con­tent of online offers to brow­sers, and all ent­ries made within our online offer or on web­sites.

  • Types of data pro­ces­sed: con­tent data (e.g. ent­ries in online forms); Usa­ge data (e.g. web­sites visi­ted, inte­rest in con­tent, access times); Meta/communication data (e.g. device infor­ma­ti­on, IP addres­ses).
  • Affec­ted per­sons: users (e.g. web­site visi­tors, users of online ser­vices).
  • Pur­po­ses of pro­ces­sing: Pro­vi­si­on of our online offer and user-fri­end­li­ne­ss.
  • Legal basis: Legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f. GDPR).

Fur­ther infor­ma­ti­on on pro­ces­sing pro­ces­ses, pro­ce­du­res and ser­vices:

  • Email deli­very and hos­ting:The web hos­ting ser­vices we use also include sen­ding, recei­ving and sto­ring emails. For the­se pur­po­ses, the addres­ses of the reci­pi­ents and sen­ders as well as other infor­ma­ti­on regar­ding the e‑mail dis­patch (e.g. the pro­vi­ders invol­ved) and the con­tent of the respec­ti­ve e‑mails are pro­ces­sed. The afo­re­men­tio­ned data can also be pro­ces­sed for SPAM detec­tion pur­po­ses. Plea­se note that e‑mails are gene­ral­ly not sent in encrypt­ed form on the Inter­net. As a rule, e‑mails are encrypt­ed during trans­port, but (unless a so-cal­led end-to-end encryp­ti­on method is used) not on the ser­vers from which they are sent and recei­ved.

Blogs and publi­ca­ti­on media

We use blogs or com­pa­ra­ble means of online com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on and publi­ca­ti­on (her­ein­af­ter “publi­ca­ti­on medi­um”). The data of the rea­ders are pro­ces­sed for the pur­po­ses of the publi­ca­ti­on medi­um only inso­far as it is neces­sa­ry for its pre­sen­ta­ti­on and the com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on bet­ween aut­hors and rea­ders or for reasons of secu­ri­ty. In addi­ti­on, we refer to the infor­ma­ti­on on the pro­ces­sing of visi­tors to our publi­ca­ti­on medi­um in the con­text of this data pro­tec­tion noti­ce.

  • Types of data pro­ces­sed: Inven­to­ry data (e.g. names, addres­ses); Cont­act infor­ma­ti­on (e.g. email, pho­ne num­bers); Con­tent data (e.g. ent­ries in online forms); Usa­ge data (e.g. web­sites visi­ted, inte­rest in con­tent, access times); Meta/communication data (e.g. device infor­ma­ti­on, IP addres­ses).
  • Affec­ted per­sons: users (e.g. web­site visi­tors, users of online ser­vices).
  • Pur­po­ses of pro­ces­sing: pro­vi­si­on of con­trac­tu­al ser­vices and cus­to­mer ser­vice; Feed­back (e.g. coll­ec­ting feed­back via online form); Safe­ty mea­su­res; Pro­vi­si­on of our online offer and user-fri­end­li­ne­ss; Manage­ment and respon­se to inqui­ries.
  • Legal basis: Ful­fill­ment of con­tract and pre-con­trac­tu­al inqui­ries (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b. GDPR); Legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f. GDPR).

Fur­ther infor­ma­ti­on on pro­ces­sing pro­ces­ses, pro­ce­du­res and ser­vices:

  • Comm­ents and Posts:When users lea­ve comm­ents or other posts, their IP addres­ses may be stored based on our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests. This is for our secu­ri­ty if someone lea­ves ille­gal con­tent in comm­ents and posts (insults, for­bidden poli­ti­cal pro­pa­gan­da, etc.). In this case, we can be pro­se­cu­ted for the com­ment or con­tri­bu­ti­on and are the­r­e­fo­re inte­res­ted in the iden­ti­ty of the aut­hor. Fur­ther­mo­re, we reser­ve the right to pro­cess user infor­ma­ti­on for the pur­po­se of spam detec­tion on the basis of our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests. On the same legal basis, we reser­ve the right, in the case of sur­veys, to store the IP addres­ses of users for the dura­ti­on and to use coo­kies, to avo­id mul­ti­ple votes. The per­so­nal infor­ma­ti­on com­mu­ni­ca­ted in the comm­ents and posts, any cont­act and web­site infor­ma­ti­on as well as the con­tent infor­ma­ti­on will be stored by us per­ma­nent­ly until the user objects.
  • Akis­met Anti-Spam Check:Akis­met Anti-Spam Che­cking — We use the Akis­met ser­vice based on our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests. With the help of Akis­met, comm­ents from real peo­p­le are distin­gu­is­hed from spam comm­ents. For this pur­po­se, all com­ment infor­ma­ti­on is sent to a ser­ver in the USA, whe­re it is ana­ly­zed and stored for four days for com­pa­ri­son pur­po­ses. If a com­ment has been clas­si­fied as spam, the data will be stored bey­ond this time. This infor­ma­ti­on includes the name ente­red, the email address, the IP address, the con­tent of the com­ment, the refer­rer, infor­ma­ti­on about the brow­ser used and the com­pu­ter sys­tem and the time of the ent­ry. Users are wel­co­me to use pseud­onyms or not to enter their name or email address. You can com­ple­te­ly pre­vent the trans­fer of data by not using our com­ment sys­tem. That would be a shame, but unfort­u­na­te­ly we don’t see any alter­na­ti­ves that work just as effec­tively;Ser­vice Pro­vi­der: Auto­mat­tic Inc., 60 29th Street #343, San Fran­cis­co, CA 94110, USA; Web­site: ; Pri­va­cy Poli­cy: .
  • Pro­fi­le pic­tures of Grava­tar:Pro­fi­le pic­tures — We use the Grava­tar ser­vice within our online offer and in par­ti­cu­lar in the blog. Grava­tar is a ser­vice whe­re users can regis­ter and store pro­fi­le pic­tures and their email addres­ses. If users lea­ve posts or comm­ents with the respec­ti­ve email address on other online pre­sen­ces (espe­ci­al­ly in blogs), their pro­fi­le pic­tures can be dis­play­ed next to the posts or comm­ents. For this pur­po­se, the e‑mail address pro­vi­ded by the users is trans­mit­ted to Grava­tar in encrypt­ed form for the pur­po­se of che­cking whe­ther a pro­fi­le has been saved for it. This is the sole pur­po­se of sub­mit­ting the email address. It will not be used for other pur­po­ses, but will be dele­ted after­wards. Grava­tar is used on the basis of our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests, sin­ce we use Grava­tar to offer the aut­hors of con­tri­bu­ti­ons and comm­ents the oppor­tu­ni­ty to per­so­na­li­ze their con­tri­bu­ti­ons with a pro­fi­le pic­tu­re. By dis­play­ing the images, Grava­tar lear­ns the IP address of the user, as this is neces­sa­ry for com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on bet­ween a brow­ser and an online ser­vice. If users do not want an ava­tar lin­ked to their Grava­tar email address to appear in the comm­ents, they should use an email address that is not stored with Grava­tar to com­ment. We also point out that it is also pos­si­ble to use an anony­mous email address or no email address at all, if the users do not want their own email address to be sent to Grava­tar. Users can com­ple­te­ly pre­vent the trans­fer of data by not using our com­ment sys­tem;Ser­vice Pro­vi­der: Auto­mat­tic Inc., 60 29th Street #343, San Fran­cis­co, CA 94110, USA; Web­site: ; Pri­va­cy Poli­cy: .

Defi­ni­ti­ons of terms

This sec­tion pro­vi­des you with an over­view of the terms used in this data pro­tec­tion decla­ra­ti­on. Many of the terms are taken from the law and defi­ned abo­ve all in Art. 4 GDPR. The legal defi­ni­ti­ons are bin­ding. The fol­lo­wing expl­ana­ti­ons, on the other hand, are inten­ded pri­ma­ri­ly for under­stan­ding. The terms are sor­ted alpha­be­ti­cal­ly.

  • Per­so­nal data: “Per­so­nal data” means any infor­ma­ti­on rela­ting to an iden­ti­fied or iden­ti­fia­ble natu­ral per­son (her­ein­af­ter “data sub­ject”); an iden­ti­fia­ble natu­ral per­son is one who can be iden­ti­fied direct­ly or indi­rect­ly, in par­ti­cu­lar by means of assign­ment to an iden­ti­fier such as a name, an iden­ti­fi­ca­ti­on num­ber, loca­ti­on data, an online iden­ti­fier (e.g. coo­kie) or one or more spe­cial fea­tures, are an expres­si­on of the phy­si­cal, phy­sio­lo­gi­cal, gene­tic, men­tal, eco­no­mic, cul­tu­ral or social iden­ti­ty of that natu­ral per­son.
