Nname of the accessed website, file, date and time of the access, transferred data volume, report on successful access, browser type including version, operating system of the user, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address, and the requesting provider.

The provider will only use the log data for statistical analyses for the purposes of operation, security, and optimisation of the site. However, the provider reserves the right to subsequently review the log data if there are specific indications for the justified suspicion of unlawful use.

Handling of Personal Data

Personal data is information that make a person identifiable, i.e. data that can be traced back to a person. This includes the name, e-mail address or phone number as well as preferences, hobbies, memberships or the websites someone has viewed.

The provider collects and uses personal data only if the law generally permits this or the users consent to the data collection.

Comments and Contributions

When users leave comments in the chat or other areas where contributions are logged, their IP addresses may be stored. This is done for the safety of the provider, if someone posts illegal content in the comments and contributions (insults, banned political propaganda, etc.). In this case, the provider may be held responsible even for the comment or post and is therefore interested in the identity of the author.

Integration of Services and Third-Party Content

The IP address is required in order to present this content. We only strive to use such content, and the respective providers use the IP address only to deliver the content. However, we have no control over how third parties use such information as an IP address, such as for statistical purposes. Insofar as is becomes known to us, we will share this with our users.
