SSL encryption

According to § 13 TMG, website operators are obliged to "[...], insofar as this is technically possible and economically reasonable, within the scope of their respective responsibility for commercial telemedia offered by technical and organizational precautions to ensure that [.. .] the technical facilities [...] are secured against violation of the protection of personal data [...] ". The transmission of data to and from this website is protected by an SSL certificate, but an unencrypted connection is also offered for reasons of compatibility. If your browser does not automatically use the encrypted connection, you can use this link activate encryption manually.

Some client programs validate certificates. This enables the Certificate Authority (the issuing company) to understand which domains were visited from your IP. Such mechanisms are far beyond the provider's sphere of influence.

Access data / server log files

The provider (or his web space provider) collects data about every access to the offer (so-called server log files). The access data include:

  • amount of data transferred
  • Notification of successful retrieval
  • Browser type and version

On the other hand, the log files provide us with information about how our service is being used. For example, we can find out which pages are particularly popular. The results of this analysis are ultimately available in statistical form and are anonymous. We do not use IP addresses to identify users. We store IP addresses for a maximum period of fourteen days.

We use intrusion detection systems (IDS) based on the log files, which can save the IP address and associated data beyond this period in the event of alleged illegal or improper use of the offer.
